Hundreds of anti-Obama protests are being staged today nationwide, as the grassroots group Overpasses for Impeachment takes to the bridges above highways in cities and towns around the country to call for President Obama’s removal from office. Thousands are expected to participate.
Twenty two protests are planned throughout Florida alone. Other leading states include Georgia, which will stage 19, California, with 14, a dozen each in South Carolina and Connecticut, and eight in Texas.
The group’s website lists numerous grounds it says merit Obama’s impeachment. But, with little chance of Congress acting to try to remove the president based on currently known facts, today’s “Patriot Wave” day of protests seem more an outlet to show displeasure with Obama than an actual drive to impeach him.
The organization, which has been built from a Facebook campaign that started with a national page and now includes pages for each state, has already staged dozens of appearances on overpasses around the country since June and plans to aggressively continue the practice after today’s mass event.
