Carlsbad Patch reports on a Tea Party coordinated “Impeach Obama” demonstration that occured on a Southern California overpass and caused traffic to backup at least ten miles, as the organizer apologized for “any small inconvenience” drivers may have dealt with.
The protesters stood on an overpass Saturday waving to motorists in the Interstate 5 southbound lanes of Carlsbad, California. They flew American flags and showcased placards stating “Remember Benghazi,” “Obama Lies” and “Amnesty Hell No!”, thePatch noted.
The protest had a 10 a.m. setup and traffic reportedly began to slow around 12:15 p.m. — stretching from under the Tamarack Rd. overpass to Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base, ten miles distant.
Roger Ogden, a Tea Party activist involved with the protest issued this statement to thePatch via email:
I would say sorry for any small inconvenience they may have suffered. But it is also inconvenient to the entire nation to have a lawless president in office who murders American citizens without judicial process; wages illegal war without congressional approval required by the Constitution, including a terroristic drone war, which has killed about 5,000 people including many children and innocent bystanders in allied countries; dictates law by executive order and generally trashes the Constitution.
