I wonder if Old Charlie Rangel is more serious about this one than he was with the old *Draft bill right before the election* play. Of course the draft bill was just an attempt to overthrow what he knew would be the peoples choice for prez, and so the commies could take over our election.....

Hey! Wait a minute.....

It's time for Mr. Conyers to work on something more meaningful.

The only thing Mr. Conyers is capable of doing that is meaningful involves finger-painting.

Now is'nt she always trying to get face time with President Bush at the State of the Union speeches. Let's see if she aggresive she is to get her mug with President Bush at the State of the Union.

Yeah, she's the one who gets in many hours prior to normal people assembling for the speech. IF she does do this again, I hope the President blatantly and obviously ignors it... I mean her.

Which brings up he question, what if the RATS take over the house and Senate in 2006? I don't think it will happen, but worst case scenario, what if? You know they'll try to impeach the President. What should we do about it?
---
What to do about it is work for Republican candidates in 2006.
If they get a majority in the House impeachment is inevitable, even if the charge is that President Bush committed the high crime of tying his right shoe first this morning.
They won't get 67 votes in the Senate, so it won't go anywhere, like Clinton's impeachment. But the Democrats will do it as payback.

So lets see...It was Republicans that killed the impeachment against Clinton even though they had the power to carry it through.
---
This statement makes no sense. Without at least 12 Democrats who would be willing to fulfill their oaths of office and vote for conviction it was not going to happen.
It was the Democrats voting along party lines that stymied impeachment, not any Republicans. Even if they had all voted for it it would have failed.

You halfway make my point.
-Dems vote along party lines.
-Republicans do not.

Why should any Dem break ranks if the Republicans have set themselves up for a loss right out of the gate. Still, I understand your point.

1] Put your fears aside.

2] Don't focus on the Dems.

3] Get adamant with the pubbies. Push them to the right

4] The only way that the Dems take over is if we allow the pubbies to behave and govern like Dems.

5] If we push Bush and Congress to the right, they are safe from everything but the tears of the left and its media machine.

6] Watch his/their approvals go up by doing the 'right' thing.

The Republicans did more than enough to stymie the impeachment by refusing the House Managers the time to put on its case. They also limited the evidence that could be shown.

Thank you Trent Lott. Thank you Rick Santorum.

The rats have been calling for impeachment since December 12, 2000.

No, the case made no difference. The House Managers could have talked for a thousand hours. The Democrats would never have convicted. Period. And the media would never have covered it in a way that the case would have a fair hearing outside the Senate.
You can blame Republicans if you want, but if the effort cannot succeed, a case can be made to cut it short and not waste everyone's time.
But as I said, you can blame Republicans if you feel they should have wasted the time.

The managers should have been allowed to make their case. Those who saw the evidence in the Ford Office Bldg did vote to convict -- even the Dems. Some of them left the room in tears after viewing it because it was so horrific.

By shortcutting the presentation, the 'jury' and the American people were denied the truth. That isn't a good thing. Ever.

A case can be made that you are correct. The people who were in charge decided that since defeat was inevitable there was no point in dragging the defeat out over weeks. That would only make the defeat greater. They may have been wrong.
We got the presidency, we got both houses of congress. We can never know if that would have happened if we had fought as you wish we had.
Either way we are where we and we have to live with the consequences.
Do you think we would have won in 2000 if Clinton had been convicted and Gore had been a sitting president? I don't know.

Well if the jury never sees any evidence, we wouldn't get many convictions in court either.

Rather than anyone being impressed with 'President Gore' as a sitting president, he would have revealed himself to be the total idiot that we knew him to be. Bush's win would've been a landslide had Clinton been convicted. People would have been horrified, both at the evidence and at Gore's performance.

Always do the right thing and don't fear the outcome. Your fears can paralyze you into inaction.

I think that the pubbies should let the Dems push this impeachment stuff. Let them make asses of themselves. There are things -- lots of them -- that I am unhappy with Bush over, but the Dems don't have a case based on any of the nonsense shown here.

Perhaps you are right. And perhaps the American people would have been disgusted by the apparent inability of the Republicans to let go of a lost cause and the Democrats would have won a landslide in 2000.
The press was able to portray Clinton as presidential, I expect they would have been able to do the same with Gore. The realities in both cases did not matter.
Sometimes admitting you've lost the present battle allows you to start preparing to win the next one. Look at the Democrats now. They won't admit that the 2000 election was lost, and they are stuck trying to reverse that election even today. And they aren't getting anywhere.
The decisions were made and we live with the consequences. We will never know what might have been. But you seem to assume that the result would HAVE to be better than it is now, I recognize it might have been worse.
