What Comes After ObamaCare: Mentioning the Unmentionable

The British political columnist, Gerald Warner, yesterday offered an across-the-Pond view of Obama's political future that most Americans aren't quite ready to say out loud:
The presiding spirit behind the squalid manoeuvres of Pelosi and Reid is Barack Obama. He is the President and commander-in-chief. The buck stops, etc. So, in the event that the President signed this healthcare legislation, consciously evading Clause 1, section 7 of the Founding Fathers’ protective document for American freedom, and it were then struck down by the Supreme Court, a question arises: could Obama then face impeachment? Think about it. An Exocet is always a tiny speck on the far horizon at first, but it is amazing how quickly it arrives at its target.
I had to look up the word Exocet. My online dictionary identifies it as the trademarked name of a French-made guided anti-ship missile, literally, a "flying fish."

Just days ago, in the House Rules Committee, a tiny speck of a politician infamously unveiled her own microbe-brained attack on the Constitution of the United States. It took a couple of days for a nation of free people, squinting from afar into clandestine negotiations, to ascertain that Slaughter's "deem and pass" is indeed a Demon Pass. Yesterday, the tiny speck loomed somewhat larger as Jeffrey T. Kuhner in the Washington Times asked the question on this side of the Pond: "Impeach the president?":
The Slaughter Solution would replace the rule of law with arbitrary one-party rule. It violates the entire basis of our constitutional government - meeting the threshold of "high crimes and misdemeanors." If it's enacted, Republicans should campaign for the November elections not only on repealing Obamacare, but on removing Mr. Obama and his gang of leftist thugs from office. 
It is time Americans drew a line in the sand. Mr. Obama crosses it at his peril.
True. But much, much worse--infinitely worse--Mr. Obama crosses it at the peril of the American people.

Hat tip: Obi's Sister, Never Underestimate the Motivation of Extremely P-O'd Americans. Also, "Kuhner's Impeach the President?"

UPDATE: Keep people posted on ObamaCare developments today and tomorrow at THIS THREAD at Potluck. 

UPDATE: Demon Pass is dead. For now. Better pound a stake through its heart and pour salt on its grave.
