By planting the impeachment flag, Republicans believed they were motivating their core voters to turn out on Election Day. They were also calculating that Democrats, demoralized by their president's reproachful behavior, would end up sitting the election out.



Instead, the House GOP's embrace of impeachment activated those Democratic voters, who showed up on Election Day in numbers large enough to defy history. Not since 1822 had a White House party gained ground in the sixth year of a presidency; but on Nov. 3, 1998, Bill Clinton's Democratic Party picked up five seats in the House.


I can't promise it would happen the same way, but I feel as if some of Trumps support comes from this exact mindset. Folks that would have otherwise ignored the hype and hate, who would have just quietly enjoyed the booming economy, hell, perhaps even believe Obama who claimed that all this is due to him, not Trump. But Trump does have strong support from his base. They aren't just slightly excited, they are full blown fans. So if impeachment is tried, even if successful, removal would be unlikely, and the possibility of another term seems more likely the result. Based on history.

The Trump support is nothing short of amazing. I get that if you are a dyed in the wool CNN fanboi, you likely don't know how things are at his rallys, or how fired up his supporters get. And these are regular people, not some group of elites who have little idea how middle class Americans live. They made up enough numbers to get Trump elected when it seemed impossible, and with all the push back from the left, it appears those same folks will be fired up in November of this year to try to keep things red.

I personally will be happy when and if we see justice prevail. And believe me when I say that if Trump is guilty of something, I want justice there as well. But if it continues to just be republicans and Trump appointees being punished, and we see all the leftovers walking away with immunity and no prosecution, I fear that the people will end up being fed up. And if enough of them get angry enough, who knows what could happen. You thought Trump was the worst that could happen? Wait till you see the next guy.........

Impeachment is not only counterproductive at this point it's also folly. Not going to happen. As to the next two elections "You don't have Hillary to kick around anymore." Which is a boon to everyone. Liberals most of all.

if they don't put the pitchforks in the shed, and find someone to run who isn't a douche, they may forget about that part and be left in the cold. I'm not sure the "Try Socialism" slogan is going to catch on. (much to the dismay of Jim Carey)

The left is losing their minds. They are having a difficult time making ends meet at the DNC, and starting in June, RNC has them by 5 TIMES the amount of fundraising.

www.cnn.com...

And that's the Clinton News Network.

They will be saying anything they can think of to try to change peoples' minds. Anything. Like Cory Booker and his fake grandstanding. He hopes to change a couple of peoples' minds before they turn the TV off.

If the economy was tanking, jobless rates through the roof, you would NOT be seeing Obummer and the DNC trying to take credit for it.

They simply have nothing else but to scream and yell.

There are a couple of simple reason that Trump won't be impeached...

1( NYT op-ed. NYT just helped someone who is saying that they are trying to coup the president. If you think coup is to strong of a word. Then does the phrase impeding the MAGA agenda by any means necessary work for you?

2) The 2nd Amendment

The Dem leadership knows it can get money and power by publicly resisting trump. They If they went to usurp him, well the fastest way to stop their revolution is to cut the head off of the snake. Since they are the head of the snake, that doesn't fit in with their money and power. Let the Dem base froth at the mouth with Trump Hate. Dem base can use the froth to wet the stamps as they send in checks to the leadership's campaigns and PACS.

It's a matter of survival at this point.

Ok. So why does the Left need to impeach Trump?

You never actually did explain that part.

Because the left simply CAN-NOT-ACCEPT the fact that Billary LOST the election.

And they NEVER will!

You mean I have to wait and see what form Trump's authoritarianism manifests itself?

Gee golly! I'm super excited.

Here I thought it was Obama and the Left that were going to come for me, take my guns and ship me off to a FEMA camp, but it may have been Trump and the Right Wing I needed to be worried about all along.

Your post proves that.

But that's ok as long as it's a matter of "survival", right?

So Trump is going to jail every single democrat? Your comment is wrong on so many levels! So what you're saying is that it's okay to put political rivals in prison? Yeah you must not be American!

Put them in jail for what?


Russian collusion perhaps? Last I heard, that was a real thing worth spending my hard earned tax dollars on the last 2 years or so.

The OP thinks the Left needs to impeach Trump because he and others believe the Left cannot get over the election?

Has anyone on the Left actually stated something like that, or is that just what you and others believe and you are projecting that on to others...trying to pass it off as a legitimate argument?

What's ironic is that there is a lot more to that Russia aspect than there was Benghazi and Clinton emails...yet we spent millions of our tax dollars on those complete political failures.
