    He was impeached. He was impeached, but not removed from office.

    Remember folks, impeachment, for the most part, is primarily a political weapon used against a political foe who may flirt with the edge of outright criminality. There is less high-mindedness with it than many would argue. All of the previous impeachment processes were heavily imbued with partisan wrangling rather than pursuit of impartial justice. That being said, it is usually reserved for the more significant political sins.

    So the House can still impeach, even if the Senate doesn't bring it to trial.



    What you are talking about is more time-wasting malarkey, exactly what the GOP Congress needs, eh?

    Check out the Congress's approval rating and you'll see what I'm talking about. A lot of Americans, of every political persuasion, have noticed that the GOP Congress isn't getting anything done.
    Correct, Congress's approval is low, but if you look at the individual Congressmen their personal approval ratings are counterintuitively high. It's like everyone in America hates congress, but likes their own Congressman (especially when they don't compromise). This creates gridlock, but I don't think it'll end any time soon by a Democratic wave. Gerrymandering alone seems to prevent that.

    This National Disaster will not be impeached. However he will still be as f-ed up as he is now......or worse.

    They hate Obama a lot more, and that irrational hate is going to make them do some mighty stupid things that will hurt the GOP.

    And I am going to laugh at them when that happens.

    The GOP clown show never fails to entertain.

    Yup. The "public interest" is blandly defined, but its actual meaning takes the guise of "good for my folks, but probably bad for you folks." One could more convincingly discuss the lack of action from Congress than it could discuss its lack of relative popularity.

    Your comment here sounds mighty partisan to me, but I continue to support your 1st Amendment right to say whatever you want to say.

    Maybe I'll like your next comment.

    If you take a look around Washington, D.C. you will find a lot of messed up people on both sides of the aisle.
    and some of them have been sent back to Washington many times.

    Why do the voters keep sending non-performers back to Washington?

    Re: What Will Obama be Impeached Over?

    Obama could perform human sacrifices on the White House lawn and the Dems would not vote to impeach him. As long as the Dems have a majority in one of the Houses of Congress, you can forget them ever impeaching a Dem President.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.
