    Obama refuses to release his real birth certificate. Impeach him.

    Lying under oath, that's pretty much okay in your book? Yes, it was the House that was wrong here, not Clinton. That about right?

    How does he get away with everything he does? To me, that's simple; those who like him refuse to hold him accountable.
    I agree. Just because he can't be impeached because the democrats would never vote to impeach, doesn't mean he hasn't committed impeachable offenses. It needs to be said, and Colburn is right to say it.

    ...because it is complete silliness. Its actually rather juvenile. The Cons continue to show why they have no business run things, because they have no ideas... there only platform is Anti-Obama. First its trying to make scandals out of nothing; then its voting 40 times to repeal legislation (a meaningless gesture); now its impeachment, as if impeachment is some type of do-over on an election. I thought the Cons were "strict constitutionalists" Please show me where in the Constitution or which of our founding fathers suggested that impeachment was a re-call procedure.

    The Cons are continuing to marginalize themselves with their own pettiness...of course, they have no choice because they have no ideas.

    Guess what? The discriminating voters in swing states see through this shallowness. This is exactly why the Cons have no shot at national office for the remainder of this decade.

    ".....Carl Riccadonna, a senior economist at Deutsche Bank, said some of the bills could create jobs, but that they would amount to more of an afterthought in terms of achieving broader policy goals.

    "They are very narrowly targeted, and it gives the impression that maybe some of this is special interest really pursuing these, not really taking a macro view but a very, very micro focus in what the impact would be," Riccadonna said. For most of the bills in the package, "jobs are a second- or third-order effect, not the main priority...."

    Most of them are just trying to reverse prior legislation. They are not serious jobs bills.

    How many jobs bills have been passed by (R)s in the House since they took control of the House in Jan 2011? - Yahoo! Answers

    As for the ACA, at the least the CBO says it is break-even to a small benefit. Note the letter from the CBO to Boehner letting him know the repeal of ACA would add to the deficit.

    Yep, one non-lawyer agreeing with another non-lawyer about.... the law. Have we moved forward?

    ...unless, of course, we are talking about the press. No one whines louder about being a victim of the "liberal-biased" press (including such things as Wikipedia) as a Conservative.
