    I think we can expect Mr. Obama to show even more contempt for the Constitution and the rule of law than he has for the past six years. He seems to have calculated that visions of riots in the streets will intimidate Republicans so badly they would never dare impeach the first black President--and especially when voters might think that was mean-spirited and hold it against them in the 2016 election. Arrogant as he is, he may think he's free to do as he damn well pleases.

    As brilliant as Trey Gowdy is, the comment someone quoted by him doesn't make sense. The fact Biden is Vice-President is hardly a good reason not to impeach President Pinocchio. His impeachment would not automatically make the Delaware Dunce President. Pinocchio almost certainly could not be convicted even if impeached, so he might very well choose to stay on, just as B.J. Clinton did.

    Impeachment is the right thing to do if we want to retain our country.

    Impeaching the president will never fly because the main stream liberal media will never allow the American people to hear the facts, so in my opinion it simply isn't an option...

    Now with that said...

    Krauthammer's analysis, opinions and comparisons on the legality and future consequences of Obama taking action on the immigration issue, was absolutely spot on. It's simply mind blowing how democrats in Washington and the people on the political left are perfectly content with Obama taking such action. In my opinion it's quite a blow to the credibility of the political left and brings into question whether they can be trusted to govern this nation in the future.

    I know that my words may strike some, especially those on the left, as being harsh but just think about the precedent Obama will be setting and ask yourself if you will feel comfortable with a Republican president being able to do the very same thing with the laws and issues that are of great importance to you? If you can honestly say that you would be comfortable with that, then go after me with both guns... But if you can't, then it's about time that you, and every single liberal who feels the same way, to use your voices to stop this from happening.

    Exactly. The poster's assertion is nonsense. Impeachment is mainly a political act, and it requires whatever transgressions the House wants to make it require. Nothing says the offense can't be largely trumped up. President Johnson wanted to remove Stanton, the Radical Republicans' ally and his antagonist, as Secretary of War. The whole reason for passing the Tenure of Office Act was to infringe Johnson's authority so far, by requiring him to get Congress's approval to remove Stanton, that he could never comply with the law. And when he didn't, his violation of the law gave the abolitionists in Congress their official reason to impeach him.

    Impeaching Johnson was part of a series of interrelated political maneuvers I won't get into here, but it's a very interesting story. As you suggest, though, Johnson's impeachment is proof that claims about having to commit crimes, etc. are just drivel. All sorts of acts can be made to qualify as high crimes or misdemeanors. The impeachment process is nothing like ordinary criminal procedure in a civil court. It's just a way to remove an official when enough people are fed up with him.

    Wasn't Krauthammer saying that Benghazi was an impeachable offense? Whatever happened to that story anyway? *crickets*

    It boils down to a lack of understanding of The Constitution and a lack of historical knowledge. The neo-communists Liberals get all their information for their NCL blog sites.
