The repubs have cried wolf too many times.

Perhaps we could allow recent history to be our guide - In other words, is it possible that the president (BHO) could be liable to charges similar to what we see here with respect to Bill Clinton.


Bill Clinton, 42nd President of the United States, was impeached by the House of Representatives on two charges, one of perjury and one of obstruction of justice, on December 19, 1998. Two other impeachment articles, a second perjury charge and a charge of abuse of power, failed in the House. The charges arose from the Lewinsky scandal and the Paula Jones lawsuit.

He was acquitted by the Senate on February 12, 1999. Requiring a two-thirds majority for a conviction, only 50 senators (out of 100) voted guilty on the obstruction charge and 45 on the perjury charge. The Senate was 17 votes short of removing Clinton from office.

Remember too that Nixon was never actually charged with the same (or very similar things) because his "impeachment" didn't go anywhere, Nixon resigned before they could impeach him, likely charges would have been perjury and obstruction of justice (erasing the Watergate tapes)

My personal take on the matter with respect to BHO? Yes - its quite possible that BHO could be brought up on charges such as perjury and obstruction of justice depending, and a charge of abuse of power, (which would most likely fail as well in the House though). Of course, this all would depend on the agenda that is currently in place regarding the 'powers that be' - i.e., those who really control such matters.

Democratic majority of the House at the time, then Democratic majorities after.

How many times does a person have to be told that just because they have a majority that doesn't mean they can just do what they want. In fact impeachment proceedings were started against Reagan but they were stopped by the Subcommittee on Economic and Commercial Law. So don't waste your time asking Democrats ask the subcommittee.


The party in charge controls the committees and sub committees.

Again, Democrats.

The Senate was under Republican control in 87 when the impeachment proceedings took place so you can't blame the Democrats.



Impeachment proceedings begin in the House, not the Senate. The Senate prosecutes if the House impeaches.

Exhausted the excuses yet?

Sorry, but the AP and Liberal media are hammering the administration now.

What are they hammering Obama for? Please indicate his involvement. Not like it ordering torture or anything. Really not like him involved with either the looking for leaks or checking groups that want the government disbanded and proclaiming the abolishment of taxes - might have some questions asked about their applications to evade taxes.

So you just find in coincidental that the IRS was targeting organizations that were in direct opposition to the current administration?



You funny person.

Your right, your wrong and you don't see what is going on. People are paying enough attention to this to have an effect on their views but,not enough to find out the facts. She knows the majority don't want to have Obama impeached, but if you say it enough everyone will start to believe.

This is like when the left kept saying that Romney would eliminate Social Security for the elderly and many accepted it as fact.

Are these phony and trumped up? No, nor are they major scandels. That is the MSM's doing. Like it or not, this will now be a Lame Duck admin until 2016.

I hope folks dont forget that the same person who was "targeting" the opposition, still has her job.

Will she see fit to fine Conservatives or any other group she doesn't like too?





The ObamaCare official in question, Sarah Hall Ingram, had been serving as commissioner of the office responsible for tax-exempt organizations from 2009 to 2012 -- the division included the group that targeted Tea Partiers -- and has since left to serve as director of the IRS' Affordable Care Act division. That unit is responsible for enforcing parts of the health care law, including the fines associated with the so-called individual mandate -- the requirement to buy health insurance.


IRS official who oversaw unit targeting Tea Party now heads ObamaCare office

What a bunch of spin. Who ordered torture? If you're talking about rendition, that was Clinton's program, if you're talking about waterboarding, that isn't torture, we do that to our own special forces in training. If you're talking about Abu Graib then Rumsfeld took full responsibility even though he didn't order it and resigned like a TRUE leader would do. Seems rather hypocritical to complain of torture, when your man bypasses all that and just drops a hellfire missile on their head from a drone.


It's now known that there was no leak. The AP alerted the White House that they had the story and at the request of the Admin they agreed to hold onto the story for 5 days for "national security" reasons. Then the Admin asked for just one more day. This was on a Monday. Come to find out the Admin had a press conference scheduled for the next day because they wanted to break the story themselves so Obama could take the credit, when the AP learned this they said "F that", and ran the story. The tax issue was to prevent people and groups critical of Obama from taking part in the election process prior to the 2012 election. It had nothing to do with taxes, but to prevent them from participating. Lastly, the TEA party isn't against taxes, they're against taxes being used for things not defined in the US Constitution.

No, the aim about killing grandma came from the Obama camp in regards to Paul Ryan.

Not sure why you would go there. It's not rumor anymore, it's now confirmed that the IPAB exists.

Anything Michele Bachmann says actually helps Obama. Even the GOP is trying to distance themselves from her.

She, as a loose canon makes all Republicans look goofy and she won't help in the midterm elections one bit; however I do find her entertaining as a conservative parody.
