    I don't think Krauthammer is advocating impeachment. Anyway, I agree with Zyphlin that impeachment talk is premature.

    But I do expect the President, any President, to express the will of "we, the people." What I don't expect is a deliberate and brazen provocation. Will be interesting to see if the GOP falls for it.

    He is decidedly partisan, yes. But a lot of people are. That doesn't make them not intelligent and educated. Krauthammer is both.

    Do you think the GOP and GOP sheeple would really rather have Joe Biden as President?

    Biden can't make things much worse, but it is possible that Biden could make things better. He could become "likable Joe " whom more Americans trust than Obama. Honestly, it wouldn't be difficult for Biden to be someone more Americans trust than any of the probable candidates in the GOP stable. Biden could, IMHO, be someone people would trust a lot more than Hillary. Given a bit of luck, as a President running for re-election Biden might have some advantages over Hillary.

    There really isn't a "GOP". You have many factions and those factions do not often get along with each other. Even the Tea Party within the GOP is not really a group of people with a unified voice. Most of the GOP doesn't like the Tea Party. Krauthammer is a Neoconservative. He is not the voice of the GOP but rather a voice from within a very mixed herd.

    I cannot imagine establishment GOP leaders wanting to wade through the public spectacle of an impeachment hearing. It would be a huge gamble and the party could lose big. Fortunately not all leaders in the GOP are neocons.

    I think that is what Krauthammer proffered.

    exerpt from O'Reilly's show.

    When O’Reilly raised impeachment as a response to Obama’s order for amnesty, Krauthammer said that would be the wrong move.

    “This is time for Republicans to be very disciplined. They won the election because they were disciplined. They stayed on message. They made it a referendum on Obama,” he said.

    “And they won,” he said. “What they have to do now is to go from being the party of no to the party with an agenda.”

    He said a goal is to pass bills to help America, demonstrating how different the GOP majority is from Obama, and send them to the president.

    “The prize here is not the impeachment of Obama and the curtailing of his term by three months. The prize is winning the White House in 2016 and changing the country,” he said.

    He said Congress’ reaction to a unilateral move by Obama on immigration should be to defund the programs, encourage private legal challenges and make it clear that any executive order would be canceled by an incoming president in 2017.


    Krauthammer: ‘Seething’ Obama would welcome impeachment
    Liberalism—dividing up the EARNED wealth of honest, hard working and ingenious AMERICANS and giving it to the leeches who would rather waste their worthless lives living off the government teat.

    They are much smarter than that. This is FOXNews. Not the GOP. We can expect this from FOXnews.

    I saw Trey Gowdy interviewed on Fox last night. Can't remember whose show it was. When the question "Will you impeach Obama" came up, he said "No. Joe Biden." When asked what that meant, he said "Nobody wants Biden to be President".

    I know I sure don't.

    That's better!

    Yup, just as I said. Obama will try to bait them. I hope they don't bite.

    I've known about Dr. Krauthammer's education and background for quite a few years. And your pretense that I was including him among the leftist dim bulbs is lame.
    Back off a few clicks and calm down, bud. I do not play gotcha and I'm not going to play it with you.

    You erroneously compared dim bulbs (your reference, not mine) to Krauthammer.
