McCarthy provides seven main offenses that support the impeachment and removal of President Obama from office. Most of these offenses are already known by most of the American public, but when read in conjunction with each other, they begin to wear on the faith anyone would have in this executive branch. Whether it is (1) the administration's fraudulently labeling of the killings of U.S. troops as "workplace violence" in the Ft. Hood shootings, (2) the use of executive action to broadly use prosecutorial discretion in deferring deportations of illegal aliens because President Obama believes Congress has not acted (they did, they voted no on the DREAM Act), (3) unilaterally waiving multiple requirements of Obamacare, (4) waiving law to protect taxpayer investments in energy ventures when Solyndra when bankrupt, (5) the maladministration of the IRS under his watch of targeting conservative groups, etc.
One of the more important points McCarthy makes directly concerns each American citizen. When President Obama "imperiously purports to waive federal statutes, he does not merely violate the law and flout his constitutional obligations. He subjects Americans to the intolerable dilemma of abiding by the law or bending to his extortionate abuse of raw power. He renders us vulnerable to legal action for ignoring our statutory duties."
In the end, when seeking to impeach a President of high crimes and misdemeanors, this charge is not a legal crime but a violation of the President's oath and fiduciary responsibility to the law and American trust. Does the federal government and its agencies think twice about prosecuting a corporate CEO for breaches of fiduciary obligations? Why is the President any different?
The second half of this book is a reference guide for conversations with friends, neighbors and fellow citizens. Democrats, independents and the press should buy and read this book to hear the facts from a former, hard-nosed, clear-headed prosecutor who knows how to compile the evidence to ensure justice is done. If Congress won't do what Democrats threaten to do to Gov. Christie over a traffic incident, better that Andy McCarthy launches an evidence-based discussion with America with this timely book. Just imagine if the actions laid out in this succinct book were done by an American President who happened to be a Republican -- imagine the different standard?! Why would the rules differ?
Buy the book. Be a part of this historic, needed evidence-based conversation. Much is at risk.
How, for instance, is he going to convince an increasingly Hispanic electorate about the virtue of enforcing laws that frustrate personal and familial aspirations of Hispanics? That is the political issue, regardless of the legal analysis that a President lacks the prerogative to abandon the enforcement of those laws. Or, for another instance, which non-Republican Senators could somehow be induced to vote to remove Obama in the final two years of his term and by what means of persuasion? Not addressed at all.
Also, a good chunk of the events he complains about occurred and were well-known prior to the 2012 election. He doesn't try to explain how large numbers of people who voted to re-elect this President in 2012 knowing about them can be induced to become outraged about them two or more years later.
The cold-blooded political fact, even after reading this book, is that when a party wins the White House and has enough Senators, only smoking gun evidence of dereliction of duty so extreme that it is indefensible by anyone up for re-election is going to put a President at risk of removal. The way our judicial system works, although a private party can complain about individualized harm suffered from being the target of un-Constitutional governmental action, there is no legal path to force the executive branch to live up to its Constitutional function to carry out laws faithfully. So the elite political operatives within each party have figured out they can get away with violating the Constitution as long as they keep a large enough bloc of voters happy and manage to elude high-level judicial review (which gets a lot easier if you have a Senate majority to control the judicial appointment process!).
The best I could say about the book's aspirations in regard to the political process is that it may serve to enrage enough voters to turn out and vote for the opposition in 2014, in which case, even though they are not likely to remove anyone from office, they will at least serve as a check of some measure on the disregard of the Constitution we have seen the past several years and in particular should be able to limit the appointment of judges inclined to indulge it.
