    Not being aware that the IRS was targeting conservatives to help Obama get reelected is dereliction of duty.

    If White House staff released classified information to the press, since Obama is responsible for the actions of who serves under him, that's incompetency, dereliction of duty and treason.

    Since the Obama administration is the most corrupt administration in history, that's a high crime.

    Actually, more qualified doesn't necessarily mean you won't make mistakes, just means you won't be going into things with your ass in your hands.

    The Presidency isn't a position that has a lot of prior job training attached to it, but generally speaking you'd want to have someone who actually successfully managed something, successfully governed somewhere, successfully met a payroll sometime, held the lives of others in their hands at one point, successfully generated something of value sometime, created and met a budget at one time, etc. Those are all pretty good indicators that you will be able to logically work your way around big government issues.

    Being able to carry a tune on the stage of the Apollo Theatre, being able to fill out a March Madness bracket, being able to shoot hoops, being able to bloviate ad nauseum, etc. are not generally considered good preparation for the Presidency. The last four plus years has proven why.

    President Bush misleading about the threat Saddam Hussein posed.

    Valerie Plame identity released to the press.

    Not by a very long shot.

    The Iraq war wasn't a mere mistake, was a hug mistake that estimates that say when every is said and done, the cost will be approximately $2.2 Trillion.

    I don't want a CEO as a president.

    Those things make the guy human, maybe if Mitt Romney had some of those qualities he might be president today.

    Maybe, but I do kind of like the gridlock. This is how Jefferson wanted it to be.

    If Biden and Obama are removed then the speaker of the house would be next in line.

    John boehner has not been a effective speaker of the house, do you really want him to be president?

    That can certainly be asserted but only from the perspective of hindsight. You DO remember that the Iraq resolution passed the House with 40% of the Democrats (minority party) and the Senate with 58% of the Democrats (minority party) voting for it. Now if you can find such support in the current Congress for the actions in Benghazi you MAY be able to breath life into that strawman...as it is now we just don't know ALL THE FACTS but perhaps 4-8yrs down the road the 'scandal' MAY look very different...we'll see.
    "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure" - 2006 Senator Obama...leadership failure indeed!

    I agree with this.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
