That’s something, but how disposed would the Senate be towards a conviction?

We couldn’t convict Bubba when we had a Senate majority.

So impeach the jackass anyway and let the blame fall on the Senate for not convicting him!

A crime is a crime is a crime!

Another congressman who thinks the base are idiots.

Instead of actually fighting only a little empty impeachment talk is all us ignorant hicks need to go vote for them again in 2014.

Pull an Eric the Corrupt and impeach him every week. Force the Senate to vote every time not to convict. Make the jerk hire lawyers and force the Progressives to defend him every week.

And a conviction would make Joe Biden President, so forget it. We’d just be trading one idiot for another.

If that is true, then why do the Republicans cave on nearly every issue and are running full speed ahead to destroy the USA right along with obama?

Didn’t slow down Billy Jeff for a minute - what makes anyone think the Current Occupant of the White Hut would not play for sympathy against “them nasty old Republicans” with the low-information voters (of which there seems to be no shortage of at all)?

Our real enemy is Herself, Madame Benghazi, the Cold and Joyless. Her assignment, should she accept, is to extend and expand all the initiatives that the Current Regime has set up and declared as “inviolate and sacred”.

Let’s make it a two-fer then. Include Holder in criminal proceedings just to make a trifecta and Bonehead gets to be prez.

Why does O break the law with impunity? because Harry Reid would never Impeach. Why isn’t O in federal prison? Because the AG is his Consigliere.

Congress hates August. The beltline press thinks this is a vacation for them, but Representatives and Senators know better. They now have to answer to their constituents.

Good luck with that.

I think it would be a lot easier to count which 1 or 2 senate republicans who would vote to impeach depending on the charges.

So Congressman, you refuse to do your job unless and until you are certain there are at least 66 Senators who will agree to do their jobs?

Keep in mind that during the formative years, age seven to ten, while our school children were reciting the Pledge of Allegiance every morning, Barack Hussein Obama was in Indonesia responding to the Islamic call to prayer.

Patriotism was not instilled in his heart as a child like our children, but instead he was instructed on devotion only to Allah. This could explain why he doesn’t seem to have any loyalty to this country or our Constitution.

Well, then test them, you bloviating, spineless enabler.

The way things happen in this world is you make people take positions, you don't just decline to do something because it is not likely to go anywhere.

Sheesh!

As far as that goes, I can't name even one Democrat who seems to have any loyalty to this country or our Constitution.

The media and the democrats (excuse the redundancy) will immediately cast it as impeaching him for being Black.

And now you know why Obama chose Biden for his running mate.

Nixon kept Agnew for the same reason. That’s why Agnew had to be removed first.

That’s what my question was based on, in part. The Senate GOP contingent of today is even more RINO than back then.

We stand a much better (still slim) chance of impeaching him over using the IRS, FEC, and other agencies to target political enemies.

IMPEACHMENT

is a fancy way of saying

PERFORMANCE REVIEW

it’s up to the senate to actually FIRE him.

that’s all it means. to ‘impeach’ a president means you fire him.

Oooooooops!
What I should have said -

Keep in mind that during the formative years, age seven to ten, while our school children were reciting the Pledge of Allegiance every morning, BARRY SOETORO was in Indonesia responding to the Islamic call to prayer.

Patriotism was not instilled in his heart as a child like our children, but instead he was instructed on devotion only to Allah. This could explain why he doesn’t seem to have any loyalty to this country or our Constitution.

If they impeached they could get discovery and then the whole world could see the criminal enterprise that is in control.

That’s why they won’t impeach. Nobody wants to open that can of worms because the whole government would be exposed as a great big scam.

It’s what we need, though. As long as they are willing to cover each other’s behinds we’ll never get anything but corruption and crime out of this system. As someone once said, “The Taliban is in the building...”

Exactly.

Do your job and let the senate do whatever they do.

Too much political strategizing is the problem.

Right.

They voted to impeach BJ and 2 high level Republicans lost their jobs -- Speaker Gingrich and his replacement Speaker Livingston.

Ironically, all 3 had zipper problems.

In his mind, the GOP congressman thinks that he is being ‘real frank’ when he is just being ‘really afraid’.

Exactly. This is like saying we won’t report a crime, even though we see there is one, because the police won’t arrest the suspect. The Republicans are just avoiding responsibility, like they always do.
