    You all didn't win ****! Obama pulled a massively unconstitutional stunt for his re election campaign, and you lemmings fell for it.

    Congress can impeach any/all Federal officers.

    And what is the threshold vote for that ? And if it is higher then the vote to simply defund, or change the governing law, then why should anyone accept a different accountability than is the norm ?

    ROFL !!! As if following state law in pursuing a recall has anything at all in common with refusing to perform your Constitutional duties.


    Unless you mean when the Dem Senators left the state ..... if you mean that, and not the recall (God, I hope you're not flailing around trying to equate the recall with this temper tantrum). If that's what you mean, interesting question.


    Very similar, and yet still different. They had no plans on staying out of state to deny a quorum for the rest of the term, and thus were not refusing to perform their duties. They planned, and successfully accomplished, to thrust the issue into the public consciousness to let the voters know wth was going on in their state capitol.


    100k+ in the streets, and historic recalls followed. They accomplished what they set out to do.



    This is not at all what the GOP is doing. They are not trying to raise public awareness, they hope the public doesn't notice that they are trying to attempt extra-legal efforts to kill a board meant to protect consumer interests.

    Obama picking the fight in the manner he did puts the issue squarely IN the public's consciousness. And guess what - I predict they'll think what the GOP are trying to do is bull****.

    Like I said, the more I hear of the right's objections to this, the MORE I like it. Bring it.

    just because you don't like what he did, doesn't make it unConstitutional.
