The South Dakota Republican Party state convention passed a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama Saturday


WIshful thinking



The resolution says Obama has "violated his oath of office in numerous ways." I


Sure has.



"I've got a thick book on impeachable offenses of the president,"


So do I.

BUT,

BUT,

If I thought for one second this would EVER go anywhere I would support it.

But people need to GET real.

NEVER,NEVER,NEVER going to happen.

Besides impeachment doesn't mean what it use to. At least not for the like of POTUS's.

Sure it matters for the little people like Blago.

But no one else.

I leave you with some Mencken switched up for the 'new' generation:



Roosevelt] was always... finding new victims to loot and new followers to reward, flouting common sense, and boldly denying its existence, demonstrating by his anti-logic that two and two made five, promising larger and larger slices of the moon. His career will greatly engage historians, if any good ones ever appear in America, but it will be of even more interest to psychologists. He was the first American to penetrate to the real depths of vulgar stupidity. He never made the mistake of overestimating the intelligence of the American mob. He was its unparalleled professor. April 15, 1945



en.wikiquote.org...

Replace Roosevelt with Obama.

People need to accept the fact that this president is unimpeachable period. Not gonna happen.

Unless he loses it completely and beheads a few republicans on live television while shouting allahu akbar or actually gets caught doing something really bad with substantial evidence of real malicious and or overtly treasonous criminal activity, he is going to finish his term.

At best, real Americans can only hope to survive his presidency and somehow be better for it in the end.

Impeachment has always meant the same thing.

People seem to think impeachment means removing a president from office (or other elected official), but all it means is bringing charges against said elected official. That's all it has ever meant.

A president can be impeached without being removed from office. After impeachment, which you could view as an arraignment, proceedings can take place against said elected official. That official might fight this process or they may feel, as was the case with Nixon, that they have no chance of winning and will resign.

Impeachment has always meant the same thing.

Why do you say he is unimpeachable? Is it because he's half black? The race card will be pulled once again as the only reason? What is it that makes it impossible for him to be impeached for what he has done to date? Harry Reid, Eric Holder, the Supreme Court? What exactly is preventing it?

All the reasons named in your post.

It is not possible without the senate, harry reid will not even allow it to the floor for a vote, process stopped dead.

Great way to structure a governing body isnt it.

Hey I know, next lets make sure that it is never possible to prosecute the rich, unless their buddies are on board, this isnt a conflict of interest or anything.

Refresh my memory about who was Senate leader when Bill Clinton was impeached. Why didn't he get tossed after that? He had no shame. He just continued on like nothing happened. He was impeached wasn't he?

"" S.D. Republican Party calls for Obama impeachment ""

More symbolic that realistic.

But it sure does shake and stir the ultra-Progressives and ultra-Left Wingers.

Deep in the back of their minds, they know if the House and Senate get the vote majorities, it would be curtains for Obama.




Impeachment in the United States is an expressed power of the legislature that allows for formal charges against a civil officer of government for crimes committed in office. The actual trial on those charges, and subsequent removal of an official on conviction on those charges, is separate from the act of impeachment itself.

Impeachment is analogous to indictment in regular court proceedings, while trial by the other house is analogous to the trial before judge and jury in regular courts. Typically, the lower house of the legislature will impeach the official and the upper house will conduct the trial.

At the federal level, Article II of the United States Constitution (Section 4) states that "The President, Vice President, and all civil Officers of the United States shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors." The House of Representatives has the sole power of impeaching, while the United States Senate has the sole power to try all impeachments. The removal of impeached officials is automatic upon conviction in the Senate. In Nixon v. United States (1993), the Supreme Court determined that the federal judiciary cannot review such proceedings.



Impeachment in the United States



Obama and Holder would be prime candidates for a guilty decision.

The "Magic Number" in the Senate is 67.

Boom !! Poof !!

Yep and the guy made what was it 150 million dollars from his stent at the

White House.

Impeachment doesn't mean anything these days.

Probably explains those new IRS 'rules' and the targeting of 'right wing' groups.

That didn't work out so well for them so they went for the 'undocumented progressive' votes from south of the border.

Impeachment is nothing more than a joke for those in charge, but a serious matter for us nit wits whom keep electing them!!!

No one wants the guy gone more I do, but I don't think it's such a good idea to impeach. I think there is supporters of his that don't follow anything other than what he could give them. They don't watch the news, stay informed, just vote democrat without a thought. This is what IMO could start the civil unrest. They have no concept of impeachment. It didn't get Clinton out of office, and for what the world still thinks it was just a little sex, and he is is the second coming.

It a waste of time and money and a further distraction from nationally televised scandals that need to be out front every day. It would make better sense to jail all those around him that are involved.

You're the one who mentioned race!

No one cares about what his damn color is.

Its about what kind of president he is. Simply, a bad one. A loophole seeking one. Corrupt.

What's preventing his impeachment is that Democrats control the Senate.

Articles of impeachment were filed against him, but he was acquitted of the charges. They tried to impeach him, but failed.

No, Clinton WAS impeached - he just wasn't removed from office.

Again, impeachment and removal from office are separate things!

They should drop the impeachable offenses and just go for treason. It would be closer to the truth. How does that end when one is convicted of treason during wartime?

Hopefully that glass of impeachment ice tea is half full. I heard it goes real good with jailhouse ramen pizza!



Optimism is a political act.

Entrenched interests use despair, confusion and apathy to prevent change. They encourage modes of thinking which lead us to believe that problems are insolvable, that nothing we do can matter, that the issue is too complex to present even the opportunity for change. It is a long-standing political art to sow the seeds of mistrust between those you would rule over: as Machiavelli said, tyrants do not care if they are hated, so long as those under them do not love one another. Cynicism is often seen as a rebellious attitude in Western popular culture, but, in reality, cynicism in average people is the attitude exactly most likely to conform to the desires of the powerful – cynicism is obedience.

Optimism, by contrast, especially optimism which is neither foolish nor silent, can be revolutionary. Where no one believes in a better future, despair is a logical choice, and people in despair almost never change anything. Where no one believes a better solution is possible, those benefiting from the continuation of a problem are safe. Where no one believes in the possibility of action, apathy becomes an insurmountable obstacle to reform. But introduce intelligent reasons for believing that action is possible, that better solutions are available, and that a better future can be built, and you unleash the power of people to act out of their highest principles. Shared belief in a better future is the strongest glue there is: it creates the opportunity for us to love one another, and love is an explosive force in politics.

Great movements for social change always begin with statements of great optimism.

Words to live by.

I would support him being tried for treason, but that is another thing is never going to happen.

No matter what the guy will come out smelling like roses.

Here is the thing about 'treason' as those people only define it as the little people.

Presidents, and congressman have 'get out of jail free' card.
