Despite a call by a group of Congressional leaders, a local Poli-Sci Professor doesn't think the President will be impeached over his decision for the U.S. to join military efforts in Libya. Portland State's Gary Malecha says this group, which includes Democrat Dennis Kucinich, is concerned the President acted outside the Constitution, approving action without Congressional support. But, he says there are many in Congress to who support the work that is being done in Libya, and not enough opposition to make an impeachment happen.
Oregon Congressman Kurt Schrader supports the allied bombing campaign in Libya. He also says President Obama did not need Congressional approval, although he says that would change if ground forces were involved. Schrader hopes the bombing will help remove Moammar Gadhafi from power.
