    Then what crime must an office holder commit to be removed from office? Actual crimes are the top end of the scale of reasons, not the bottom.
    Impeachment isn't on the table until possibly, after the mid-term elections. If Republicans can seize a majority in the Senate..... If they do not get a majority, then it's not an option unless Obama murders someone in broad daylight in the Rose Garden, with a pistol. (Obvious "Clue" reference there... ) The news networks would probably destroy the video - so it's a "maybe" even then.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Impeachment is a meaningless waste of time.

    It won't go through, but it will take up at least 6 months and probably an entire 2 years of time, when politicians could be doing nothing whatsoever, which is a better use of their time.

    Remember, on a couple of the counts against Clinton, they couldn't even get a simple majority. Which means that they didn't even get all the Republicans.
    He won't be, the country has lost it's way. Obama's crimes are far worse then Clintons ever were.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Re: POLL: one-third say Impeach Obama

    If Bush and Cheney can get off scott free what hope do we have on impeaching Obama?

    Specifically, has anyone lined out what high crime or treason Obama has committed?

    I know a lot of opinions feel he has. But what specific law has he broken?

    Most of the folks I know that want Obama impeached wanted him hung by the yardarms the day he was inaugurated. It really don't matter what :crime" he has, or has not, committed.

    I'm thinking these are the people that this political stunt is trying to appeal to. But why? They are insignificant in the big picture.

    I do wish they would go forth with it. Make my day.

    That was already debunked on this thread. Nice try though. Now carry on.

    Let me dissect this one by one and it clearly started on Bush's watch -- not that he was directly responsible for business cycles. Here is that recession in gray. It wasn't much of anything.

    And it was mainly revenue loss.

    Re: POLL: one-third say Impeach Obama

    If this poll were conducted when Bush were President, you would have similar results but with the partisan divide flip-flopped. The same would be true of any president. People that don't like a president will want him or her impeached. They don't care about if that would be legal. These polls are pointless and do nothing but foster nonsensical, partisan bickering.

    I really think that the birther think got going as acheck against what might have happened to Mccain because he was born in Panama. I know that he was born on US territory; a military base as I recall, but nonetheless, as we can see, when you drop something like that in a campaign, it gets legs.

    As for impeaching Obama: you can impeach anybody for anything, like you can sue anybody for anything: it doesn't mean you have a case or that you can win. Impeaching him would be another grandstanding show trial like the Clinton impeachment and will just waste more rescources than we can afford, so I'm for just forgetting about teh idea. If GW Bush was allowed to walk after his fiasco then the Republicans shouldn't even be talking about impeachment.

    2001 Recession

    It lasted eight months (March-November 2001). It was caused by the Y2K scare, which created a boom and subsequent bust in Internet businesses. It was aggravated by the 9/11 attack. The economy contracted in two quarters: Q1 -1.3% (-.5%) and Q3 -1.1% (-1.4%).

    The government doesn't force banks to do things they don't want to? You've got to be kidding with that one. Where have you been, under a rock?

    You do remember that the TARP spending, a huge waste that it was, was supposed to be a one time emergency jolt (not) for the economy. But, as feared, Obama seized on the chance to screw us all, and treat it as part of the budget, so he could keep up that reckless spending for a few more years. What a destructive jerk.

    How would numbers on advocating impeachment of Bush and Clinton a decade or two ago provide evidence either way for the radicalization of the right in 2014?
