    I think many are basing their conclusions on the already announced increases in the 20% to 40% range. Fear mongering? That's a part of politics, and I have no doubt there's some of that in the mix as well.


    But back on topic... nobody is going to start impeachment on the President. IF the House was going to jump they would have already done so.... Sen. Coburn is just snarling because he knows that dawg won't hunt...
    I agree. There's no virtue or political hay to made impeaching a very lame duck, and they know it.

    I'm no lawyer either, but imho Coburn is spot on and I agree with you, he should've been impeached long ago.

    How does he get away with everything he does? To me, that's simple; those who like him refuse to hold him accountable.

    Any impeachment should occur at the ballot box. This stuff Obama has done, egregious though it may be to some, just doesn't rise to that level. Furthermore, it's a dangerous precedent that we should reserve for only the most constitutionally and morally offensive behavior. That Obama's politics are "in your face" in style, and sometimes substance, shouldn't be a surprise. He announced as much. The scandals are just that - scandals. Stop whining, and politically defeat the guy.

    I think he was answering a question about the NSA program or the IRS scandal. Pundit on tv stated that Coburn is normally grounded and sane, but this crazy talk shows that he's in trouble politically because of some votes he's made. (Of course, Obama had nothing to do with the IRS scandal...and it is now known that the IRS targeted both right and left organizations, and it was grounded in the fact that a lot of orgs filed after Citizens United decision). The NSA program has existed since before this administration, but whether it expanded, I don't know. But impeachment for nothing is crazy talk. Taking us to war based on false information? That would be impeachable, but even then, I recognized that that talk about impeaching Bush was wasted time and costly, and hard to prove. Not good for the country. Coburn is scared, apparently. The Republican Party is in trouble. Fearing the extreme right.

I don't think his race changes the minds of more than a slight percentage of people across the country about whether or not they support impeachment.
    I think the point was that if the president was White the impeachment procedings would have been filed instead of just talking about them.

I guess that's their justification for stealing? Don't they ever stop to think that maybe most of us don't have everything we want either? This is total : and it's disgusting!
    What these people have forgetten is that it is better to want than to have.

    This would be a great way to raise Obama's job approval ratings and MSNBC's ratings.
