    I believe that there will be a universe 50 years from now but I'm not sure how many people will be around then.

    Let's hope for the best.

    Impeachment, regardless how well deserved isn't going to be the best way to further the Republican's positions.
    So I figure that McConnell and Boehner, who have been around long enough that they know this, aren't going to let that happen. Also, if I recall, there are far fewer of the zealots in congress now than before.

    As Krauthammer points out, this comes with significant political risk and really, without much benefit to them or the party.
    There are other ways to handle the situation far more effectively.

    Let's hope that the Republicans handle this to their advantage, rather than going off and doing something foolish. No need to have the other 2/3's of the government behaving foolishly and stupidly. But then, you can never tell for sure until it's happening.

    I guarantee you the repugnicons will be acting foolishly and stupidly. Especially since they have a little power. They think the lowest midterm turn out with an unpopular president gives them cart blanch. I can't wait to see what Bills they propose. That is if they decide to actually do some work as they have no real interest in actually governing. Their expertise is causing gridlock and producing filibusters. That poor senior who yelled "keep government out of my medicare" won't know what hit him.

    There are many other ways to kill off anything Obama wants to put forward, instead of impeaching him. Impeachment is what Obama wants I believe. Best to keep his EO's unfunded, and simply make him wear out his veto pen - or if he doesn't want to veto - let the bills pile up on his desk. His legacy will continue to drop like a stone - Republicans look great because they keep passing bills and Obama either veto's them or won't sign them. Unless Obama actually commits outright treason, impeachment shouldn't be on the table.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. 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.

    Exactly. Each of those actions carries far less political risk, far less exposure to repercussions, enough so to make those a wise move.

    Holding both houses of congress is little power? Last I recall, holding both houses of congress was 2/3's of the government.

    The bills have already started. The Keystone XL pipeline is up for a vote, but that's more the Democrats wanting to rescue Landrieu from her foibles.

    Gridlock? Bipartisanship? Governing rather than politiciking? You are describing the Democratically controlled Senate and the White House, not the House.

    Let me introduce you to some facts here, in a form, such as Gruber is preparing for explaining ObamaCare, that you may understand.



    What, exactly, is the point of the Senate not taking up a bill that has passed the house unanimously?

    I am quite certain you think that of Krauthammer because you wouldn't be able to put together a coherent response to anything the man says if you had ten people helping you.

    You are aware that he's a quadriplegic? May explain your perception that he doesn't 'do anything'.
