    The net impact of Clinton's transgression was still ultimately a slap on the wrist whether he was censured or impeached and not convicted. Either are historic, but impeachment is a stronger footnote in his biography. It's not like he will ever need to practice law again.

    Obviously Obama is trying to push the limits and doesn't even come close to this. A President attempting something and then getting called on it is at least part of the job description.
    I agree with your job description and one should not expect less. Political reality is a bear at times. But when it comes to removing a president from office, the people must be willing to go along with it. Whether that is right or wrong, I guess that is someone else's call.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I think Congress must recess between sessions, so there's your answer on that. It's not the temporary appointments that they don't want, it's low quality of personnel that they don't want. But, that is Congress's part of the appointment process. He wouldn't have this problem if he appointed better qualified people.
    Does the POTUS have the right to appoint his own people?
    Clinton had the same problem with judges at the end of his 2nd term, which Bush got to fill.

    Once you frame this as the argument, I have to stop reading.
    Nice talking to you.

    No he does not.

    From Roberts, during the oral arguments, "Well, they have an absolute right not to confirm nominees that the President submits."

    He can appoint anyone he wants, that is not in question. He should be appointing people that he thinks can be confirmed, BIG difference. Left wing justices aren't going to cut it with the right, just as Constitutionalists won't cut it with the left.

    Gun control morphed during my conversation with another, not you.
    You posted this crap 2:13 after the thread warning, grinding your own axe.

    Clinton was not the topic, you are wrong.
    You should grind your axes in the Partisan sections, I work hard to stay out of those.
    Because you are nonpartisan .
