    That is because they generally have no clue. In their minds President=King. Congressmen are his underlings, and the rest of the people are his slaves.

    Dumocrats simply cannot comprehend a form of government that is not hierarchical. That is also one of the primary reasons they are so obsessed with "class" IMO.

    Agreed. Even just historically this does not bode well for the dems.

    Then of course there's always that fly in the ointment called "articles of impeachment".
    Bohner can't stop the Tea-nuts from diving into that crazy-car ...and once they do, the house will be the Democrat's for the taking.

    GeeZ...

    "Nutty Right-Wing Politics."

    You think Thomas Jefferson was that "bizarre?"

    Yeah, there are some RINO's out there, but to even attempt to claim we all fall in that sort of pool is literal insanity.... The majority of "us" are true liberals who stand by the Constitution and Bill of Rights....

    I would suggest you learn what the TRUE Conservative party stands for, before you go judging the philosophy....

    The left considers freedom as a prison, and the boomers children tend to be less liberal than they were.

    However, if they can continue to import uneducated and ignorant undocumented democrats, and continue the forcible association of unions, they might keep the ship from tipping for a few more minutes.

    Name one republican calling for impeachment-there isn't one. Theres enough misinformation out there-how about not spreading it.

    Only a few have even mentioned it, and the dems can't stop bringing it up-its a way to distract and maybe get the president some sympathy. It wont work.

    Dems talk about impeachment 20 times as much as Republicans | TheHill

    Yeah, like real conservatives are impressed by the guy....... I'll tell you this much - Obamatreasonclown has his pal Holder (not to mention ever elitist such as Pelosi etc) has broken the law and they all belong in prison - all of them -- and they can take Weiners funky junk with them, however progressives don't care just as long as their tyrant aristocrats hold their power source and base.... It's part of the game.... Cloward-Piven. Fabian society....

    No Republicans have discussed impeachment. Also, there are no tanks near Baghdad.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
