Even if the GOP got a 60 seat majority in the Senate they would still not move into action to rid us of this troublesome criminal in the White Hut.

If you’re thinking impeachment, I believe it takes 67 votes (2/3), not 60.

So? What will change? There’s only one party in Washington DC, The Government Party.

Can’t they just deem it “so”?

Good point. Since when do the Founders get to have a say when there’s pens and phones and executive orders...

On the other hand, with a majority in the Senate and the House they could cut the White House budget to bare bones. Want to bet that Valerie Jarrett loses her secret service detail in 2015? If she doesn’t, the WH budget is still too flush.

“Even if the GOP got a 60 seat majority in the Senate they would still not move into action to rid us of this troublesome criminal in the White Hut.”

You’re right. McConnell and Boehner would have a joint press conference to say they would like to really make some changes but couldn’t because they’re only two halves of one of three branches of government.

I think that GA and KY will be tea party seats. I think Brown will win in NH and 6 other pick up

< p>November will bring the Tea Party into leadership positions and some states will surprise. I think CT Will kick Malloy out and CT2, CT4 and CT5 will be pickup by the R.

Once again we don’t need control of the Senate to impeach Obama. That’s entirely up to the House of Representatives. Impeaching means indicting. Then the Senate tries the President. The Senate has nothing to do with the impeachment process.

Even if the GOP got 80 seats they wouldn’t act.
