Ted Cruz Answers a Burning Conservative Question on Obama: 'Why Don't We Impeach Him?

"Good question."

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz answered a burning question whispered, echoed, and sometimes shouted in the hallways of Conservative households and establishments on Monday night regarding President Obama: "Why don't we impeach him?"

Cruz gave a simple answer according to National Review's Katrina Trinko: There aren't enough votes in the Senate:

The House of Representatives must pass impeachment by a simple majority. The trial then goes before the Senate, where a two-thirds vote is required to remove the official from office.

That answer came after Cruz acknowledged it as a "good question" while addressing a group of Tea Partiers in Kingwood, Texas, just outside of Houston.

Cruz's comments come on the heels of the senator making news regarding his citizenship. After releasing his birth certificate Monday to the Dallas Morning News, Canadian law experts said it actually showed Cruz would have duel citizenship given he was born there. Later in the day, Cruz said he would renounce his Canadian citizenship.
