    That's the way it's always worked with impeachment. Impeachment is about high crimes and yadda yadda, but really, it was really find the possible bare minimum standard of that and run with it. There is very little that is altruistic about impeachment motions or proceedings.

    The most important thing with impeachment hearings is to find an example severe enough to convince your colleagues and a large chunk of the American people that this warrants it. In reality the partisanship defines the proceedings, but you have to find something good to move forward.

    Fraud Law & Legal Definition

    Fraud is generally defined in the law as an intentional misrepresentation of material existing fact made by one person to another with knowledge of its falsity and for the purpose of inducing the other person to act, and upon which the other person relies with resulting injury or damage. Fraud may also be made by an omission or purposeful failure to state material facts, which nondisclosure makes other statements misleading.

    Fraud Law & Legal Definition

    under the legal definition of fraud it is an open and shut case against Obama. A 1st year law student could win that case
    Call it what you want but i agree that it is.

    The only politicians lying through their teeth, your disgusting words, are those in Kkongress who came to D.C. to "fix" the problems and work together,, the GOP of NO ..

    Obama simply did what most politicians do on the daily basis: lied through his teeth, to push through his favorite legislation/subsidy/used car sale, or whatever.

    I wouldn't say 98% of our presidents, but definitely a few of them.

    Lying is not a criminal offense unless it's under oath.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Sure sure, it needs to be under oath and all of that, but you need a small demonstrable violation (ex. Johnson's met the bare standards, but it was a rather weak case to begin with) to get anywhere. It's all about the art of convincing and amplifying their faults. Clinton perjured himself. It met the bare standard, but he perjured himself about receiving a blowjob. It met the criteria, but it wasn't so convincing that he was to then be removed from office (or at least our Congressmen agreed, popular opinion also agreed). Johnson's crime was largely opposing his party in the legislative branch. He was made into a small small man at the end of it, but he at least got to keep some of his dignity by remaining in office.

    Oh, come now. Don't play that game when you want Obama to be impeached for also "lying."

    Come on, at least you can join the dark side by saying that impeachment is the last resort of partisan dissent. It was never used honorably, and it will never be used so honorably.
