    If Obama knew....

    If Obama knew what the IRS was doing to conservative groups and allowed it to occur, would you support going forward with impeachment?

    Yes, of course. But there's no evidence that he did, at this point.

    I usually hate what if questions, they are purely speculation. I have also found out in my long life what one thinks he would do if a certain situation arises, that is not necessarily what they do. So my answer is I do not know. I think the Republicans made a mockery of the impeachment process with Bill Clinton and I am not too sure that impeachment/resignation was the correct call even for Nixon. I say this later because since then it has come to Light that LBJ actually did some of the things Nixon was accused of attempting like actually using the IRS to get back at his political foes, the FBI to obtain information on his foes and of course the CIA. But LBJ had a complaint congress of the same party and not one of them would ever challenge LBJ.

    So I really do not know.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I would have voted for - yes, but impeachment lacks the gravity it once did after Slick Willie slipped the noose.

    He probably had nothing to do with it. I was just saying that if he did, it's definitely worthy of putting him on trial.

    I voted "absolutely." But it's just not that black and white.

    The reason I would vote for impeachment would be to send the message loud and clear that there will be consequences for using the IRS (or any other government agency) to harass one's political rivals...or for covering it up.

    Yeah.

    But Given that the Obama administration is actually focusing on The IRS scandal to me indicates that they believe their hands are clean.

    Nope, impeachment is a toothless process.

    I'd support incarceration.
