    There are 25 factors which Congress should impeach Obama. 9 of them are very serious violations of the Constitution. Even if Obama was really a good president, no one in our country is above the Constitution. But Obama violates the Constitution not with good intentions, and for the destruction of our country.

    oh sure. Even Harry Truman called them 'do nothing" Congress.
    It's just lame that Obama leans on this, so very often.

    And yet, the Republican controlled House of Representatives refuses to impeach him. Why?

    What I have gotten in return is a series of disappointments and let downs. Sure - a Republican would have been ten times worse if he allowed his right wing to pull him by the nose. But the only real thing Obama has accomplished is the health care law and even that is a watered down version of a republican idea to begin with.

    We will see six years of very little actually being accomplished and I fault his first two years and his timidity to go head to head with the conservatives for that. He had the nation behind him. He had the numbers in Congress. And he blew it pure and simple.

    Yes, I give him good marks for economic recovery to some degree. That is his positive progress and it is no small accomplishment given that the right wing was willing to keep the economy in the tank just to have Obama fail. So that is a positive area.

    The only thing separating him from a failed Jimmy Carter presidency is a giant failure issue like the Olympic boycott which marred and scarred Carter. If that happens in the next three years, he could go from AVERAGE to FAILURE.
    I think this is a reasonable assessment. The only real place I would differ significantly is that I see what economic recovery we have had thus far is more a part of the natural up and down cycle and less anything he or his administration has done.

    I fail to see how you believe Obama was more qualified than either of the Bushes.

    Being President of the United States is a job not like any other job in the whole wild world. There were on 42 people who had the job before Obama. Experience? Bah humbug, it means nothing. Nobody has the experience to hold the job, in my opinion, it's all OJT.

    : You know, they seem to have schools for everything else... from West point to train our military leaders, to vocational schools to train our building trade people, to colleges for scientists and engineers, for medical schools to train our doctors an nurses...and so forth...yet no school to train our Presidents. It truly is OJT --for the most important job in the world!

    Exercise in futility? It would not pass the Senate, and everyone knows that with the current majority in place. I don't understand why the House can't clip his wings a bit, though, and take back the responsibilities and authority the Constitution granted them, which he has usurped in some cases, and ignored in others. Even the POTUS is not above the law!

    Agreed, it's nice to see partisanship take a back seat and someone that supported him being willing to offer an honest assessment. Honestly, I'm always at a loss when liberals and progressives speak so highly of his administration. If I was a supporter, I would have felt cheated after his behavior during the HC debate
