    Exactly. That is precisely why the OP is a non-starter. This is most certainly not the hill on which the GOP wants to die.

    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.


    Think about it.....what could Joe Biden do in less than a year with not having any Congress.

    Also, the Demos have their own civil war going. How many will view a blatant disregard for the Constitution and our way of government and not act?

    Hmm. Tough question there MCC. How much of a sacred cow is the first black president to the Democrats?
    Wouldn't you have to answer 'Very' to this question?

    Oh I'd say that they are addicted milking the real sacred cow, a lot.

    Nice to see that some of them are being sent home for a change.
    Isn't this one of the largest number of freshmen entering the congress after an election?

    Re: Krauthammer: 'Impeachable Offense'

    The House could have impeached Obama at any time. The problem that the House leadership does not have specific charges. If the house used vague... non specific Constitutional ideals... they would be ridiculed by legal scholars and pundits on the extreme political nature of the impeachment.

    Too many in the party would not be happy with the House making a mockery of the process and putting the GOP in a bad historical light.

    Substantively? Not much. But he could possibly look damned good doing it. That could be a problem for the GOP.

    Shooting straight from the hip I would think that impeaching Obama would piss off more people than the GOP can afford to piss off. Don't mistake the GOP win for a big "like" from America, it wasn't. The GOP doesn't have that much political capital to gamble on an impeachment hearing. Then there is the minority vote, which the party of angry old white dudes needs and will need more and more of in the future. I'm not an ethnic minority and thus I cannot speak for or with any real insight into ethnic communities, but I don't believe they are in love with either major party. I know for certain they aren't head over heels in love with the GOP. Many may equate impeachment with lack of respect, commitment, understanding of ethnic issues. Does the GOP really want to take that chance? Hell no, they don't.

    Have it all happen and problems over a Ferguson verdict, minority voters just aren't going to flock to the GOP. Then Biden becomes the President and doesn't screw anything up and looks good and trustworthy. It could happen. Biden isn't stupid. He's not diplomatic, LOL, but that could play in his favor,not being slick and polished at a time when most of us are sick of that crap.

    The establishment GOP is having none of that. They are better off having Obama finish his term and I think the establishment GOP are very much aware of that. Tea baggers? I don't know. Neocons? I have no idea. Krauthammer is in some ways like Limbaugh, except he is more educated.

    Also, the Demos have their own civil war going. How many will view a blatant disregard for the Constitution and our way of government and not act?
    They do have their own civil war going. Looking at both ****ed up parties I never regret having left both behind.

    Cmon now Biden not screw up? Not say something stupid? Joe will just look good taking it to its end course.....smiling, and waving to the crowds, and signing those Autographs for 20 bucks a pop.
