People need to get real as to when impeachment can and should be used and when it’s folly. I personally would like to see more impeachments of lower level individuals to set the precedent.

There have been no impeachments of major figures for anything other than personal scandals. That was established by the Andrew Johnson impeachment and it’s held true.

Speaking of impeachment....General Mulcasey had the best comment of all...SOMEBODY QUICK TELL THE REPUBLICANS!

He said that, technically, the President broke no laws. There is a provision in that notify congress thing in that the prez can move without congressional approval should it be necessary. So they came up with that poor health thing and sent, as is their wont, Susan Rice out to lie.

Mulcasey said that it is also perfectly legal for the President of the U.S. to release everybody in a federal prison at one time if he desired. He has pardon powers after all.

So he’d break no law but would such an action be something for the betterment of the country, a result our President should want and NOT in keeping with his oath of office.

Why can’t Boehner get out of the tanning booth and say the same as above and say it over and over and over?

Instead we get Lindsay saying NEXT TIME?

Oh, and y’all heard about the VA hospitals in Arizona are neck deep in the falsifying of records?


Hmmm, isn’t one of that state’s senators the champion of the military man?

Am I to understand that Juan McCain knew NOTHING about the VA issues in his state, that not on constituent every complained?

No wait....wasn’t McCain working heartily to improve the VA system as a keystone of his presidential campaign in 2008?

NO WAIT....that was campaign finance reform, something we all lay awake nights worrying about.
