Tina, it is “if he were” not “If he was” G.B.

Drink some more Brawndo, it’s got electrolytes.

But she’s okay with the fact that he hasn’t been, right? Do these fellow travelers realize that they’ll be stood up against a wall long before you and I will?

Tina Tina Tina. Don’t you know that it’s wrong to kill people with Republican bullets and missiles but it’s OK to kill people with Democrat bullets and missiles because the Democrats really care? They are going to give us a fourth reich, er, I mean, a golden nation.

I must say I am shocked to hear of a Liberal using the word ‘impeached’ in the same sentence as the name ‘Obama’. They may be awakening but it is TOO LATE! Maybe the Congress will have the ***** to do something about this ‘elected’ dictator. If not, this country is doomed.

Boehner doesn’t have the cajonies to introduce Articles of Impeachment .. I can propose a number of charges hat even the media would have a hard time denying that the WH and State dept have colluded to deceive the public about pretty much everything going on today in our society.. but,, like I said, it takes a set.. sadly , the Gop is short .. in more ways than one..

You are wrong. He does not have a Republican Congress. We only have the House, not the Senate. For your information Congress consists of 2 Houses. The Senate and the House of Representatives which is what we have. The rats have the Senate and the White House

I stand corrected, however, FYI, the House is often informally referred to as “the Congress”. It was in this usage that I wrote.

When it was Clinton being discussed regarding impeachment, then Sen. Trent Lott was quoted as saying “You’re not going to dump THAT in MY lap”.. (meaning impeachment).

Many like Jim Sensenbrenner were apalled by that comment! When ‘our side’ ignores the rule of law, the constitution, what is our next step? We call and call and our side ignores us. We try to boot who we don’t like, then we get voter fraud, as in 2012 stolen elections. Just this week some Ohio fellow said “ha ha... I voted for Obama twice”.. and IIRC he was on some polling board or similar position. And he will never be charged. This is so frustrating to see our country, rule of law being ripped apart.

Now Trent Lott is on K street lobbyist superior and he was quoted again before 2012 that we don’t need any more Jim DeMint types in congress. Disgusting low class person, IMHO.

It's well known that liberals have no idea about the constitution, but that a conservative like you does not know that the appropriate committee for impeachment proceedings is the House Committee on the Judiciary. I don't see the Speaker of the House's name in here

United States House Committee on the Judiciary

The dems can impeach him for drones; the pubbies can impreach him for Benghazi and ‘Fast and Furious’...a great opportunity to reach across the aisle and ‘compromise’. Isn’t that what everyone wants..?

I pray they do, but with the rats having the majority in the Senate the chance of getting that arrogant pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave removed from Office is nil, even though the House might impeach him.

If we lose the House, chances are we haven’t seen anything yet. The message R’s bring better rouse the “ lo-fo “ voters, who require either guvmint income, or a job to go to not to mention that we still have working Americans who are jobless.

God help us. Food supply will be next. The power mad know how to bring about compliance.

“But she’s okay with the fact that he hasn’t been, right?”

That’s what I’m thinking. It’s actually bragging because she knows the “won” can do anything and there will be no one to stop him. The Constitution was framed for honorable(or at least semi-honorable) men and hussein can lay claim to neither of those monikers.

Looking at that list, we’d better pray the Dems never regain control of the House. Bad bunch of players.

I don’t think any committee or committee chair would bring impeachment charges absent a large outcry from the public. The last one ended up damaging the GOP as much as it did Clinton.

Well, as Kramer said, "Johnny Yuma... was a rebel."
He roamed... through the west
Johnny Yuma... was a rebel,
He wandered... alone.
He got... fightin' mad,
This rebel... lad,
He packed no star... as he wandered far
Where the only law was a hook... and a draw, the rebel.

Away... away... away... rode the rebel.

Johnny Yuma... was a rebel,
He roamed,.. through the west.
Johnny Yuma... was a rebel,
He wandered... alone.

He searched the land... this restless lad,
He was panther quick... and leather tough
Cause he had figured that he'd been pushed enough... the rebel.

Away... away... away... rode the rebel.

Away, away, away... rode the Rebel--

And Johnny Yuma... was a bobcat in the sack!

Well, I... am--

Yes, Johnny Yuma and the other Western TV stars of the 1950s killed a passel of bad guys... but they killed none of them with a drone.

PS, I'll give a cigar to anyone who can tell me... who all the above are, both the actor and they character they played--

They can toss the word around because the more they use it the less it will mean. It is common (unspoken) knowledge that there is no offense Obama could commit that would lead to his removal from office. He has pigmentation immunity.

Yeah but if certain Freepers had their choice the rats would be in charge forever, just to teach the GOP another lesson like they did in 2006 and what did that bring us?

Well it did get dumped into Trent Lott's lap, but he couldn't do anything with it, because NONE of the Democrats in the Senate even bothered to look at the EVIDENCE against Clinton. They simply blindly voted AGAINST convicting him, so even though he was 'impeached' by the House, he wasn't CONVICTED by the Senate, so it wasn't successful.

I imagine the same thing would happen were the Republicans to try to impeach Obama. I can understand why they wouldn't even want to poke THAT hornet's nest!

What about use of rendition so suspects can be physically tortured by foreign governments whereby the U.S. has plausible deniability on whether the information was obtained under duress?

I don’t have a problem with them taking down Al Qaeda’s command and control by whatever means. But I recognize that, as the article states, if Bush had done it they would be caterwauling 24-7. How do we know that?

Because throughout the Iraq and Afghan wars they were caterwauling 24-7. Having voted for war, within 10 minutes key Democrats were on camera decrying the war they had minutes before just voted for. This way, if it went well, they were for it. And if it went badly, they were against it.

All through the war, they could be counted on to leak information to the New York Times, including how we were tracing Al Qaeda money, and communications, how we were transporting Al Qaeda captives, how we questioned them, what the rules and limits were for interrogations, where the black sites were located, which planes were CIA planes, and on and on. They fought in court to have key Al Qaeda and Taliban captives released from prison (including Bin Ladin’s bodyguard and chauffeur.

Now that they are in command, a lot of that has stopped. And for the most part Repubs are loyal to the war effort, they are just perturbed that that kind of support was never there for them when it was their watch. The hypocrisy is pretty hard to take.

I wish I though you were right 2nd D.

I figure I’ll be going with probably the second group, then the fatties will go after my group.

But Tina, Krugman, Rich, that crazy screaming guy, they’ll all go too, eventually.

I don’t know why they don’t see that, or maybe they love Obama just that much.
