This group was out there again on Sept. 10, on a Long Island Expressway overpass between Exits 60 and 61, trying to persuade drivers to support impeaching President Barack Obama.

It managed to slow traffic back to Exit 53. If the group wants my support for anything at all, I'd suggest not adding a half hour to my commute.

One of the signs said, "Honk to impeach Obama." Nobody honked while I was driving by, and once we were past them, traffic returned to normal.

I support their First Amendment rights, but the way they are using them will not make them many friends.
