Billboard calls for impeachment of President Obama

Billboard calls for impeachment of President Obama

ATLANTA -

A conservative group is paying for billboards in metro Atlanta that call for President Barack Obama's impeachment.

Overpasses for America, a self-proclaimed non-partisan grassroots organization, bought space on an electronic billboard on Georgia 400 near Cumming.

The electronic billboard at the 29-mile marker has a simple message: impeach the President.

"That's the message we're trying to put out there with the billboards. Wake up America. We need to impeach Obama," said Janet Vinnenberg of Overpasses for America.

Vinnenberg points to the czars in the Obama administration and the Affordable Care Act as reasons for impeaching the president. She calls members of Congress "Republicans in name only."

"A lot of the Republicans in the House are RINOs, and I feel that they're not sticking to our conservative values," said Vinnenberg.

Steve Golden, the president of Young Democrats of Georgia, says the impeachment billboards are political sour grapes.

"These are people that just disagree with the majority of the American people that said just a year ago, ‘President Obama, we want to bring you back to the White House, and your policies with them,'" Golden said.

A recent poll by Quinnipiac University shows that 54 percent of Americans disapprove of the president, and only 39 percent approve of his job performance.

"I think it is an opportunity, but we need more people out there to call their congressmen," Vinnenberg said.

Golden said, "It's an old saying, but the only poll that really matters is the poll that happens on Election Day."

The billboards are at the same location as a billboard that showed Hitler endorsing President Obama last year.
