        Forget that touchy-feely "high crimes and misdemeanors" the Constitution calls for. Impeachment is now required when the Reich Whinge really dislikes you.

      How about they get congress to pump billions of dollars into the DOJ so they actually have the cash and resources to prosecute more immigration cases? They'd get as many people as possible deported, and we'd have jobs.

      One would think this kind of win-win would be pretty obvious to the GOP House, but, yeah, no.

      Until then, the courts will have to focus on, gasp, immigrants with [actual] criminal cases pending. Anyone trolls care to step in and say it's really worth the time in our courts system to prosecute persons here illegally versus one here illegally and accused of a violent offense? Yes yes, I know the "they're both crimes" talking point, but surely even this level of pragmatism can be grasped?

      They really don't care what damage they do to the country, do they?
      Even the prospect of the destruction of this iteration of the Republican Party, which impeachment would cause, (and is a consummation devoutly to be wished) isn't enough to make me want to see the country go through that again.

        No, they don't. They're going all in. It's beginning to backfire on them. Republican Congress members are having a heck of a time at their town halls during the Summer break. They have constituents yelling at them.

      Maybe the right-wing professional liars should tell us who they want deported first...

      The violent ones that present a danger to public safety?

      Or the ones desperate for any paying opportunity to harvest their food, wash their dishes, make their beds, and maintain the landscapes on their estates?

        And contributing to America. Clearly, those that help America, but are here legally are very dangerous and must be ejected before those that rape, murder, torture, or rob... Otherwise, AMNESTY!!!!!

        Fox News and those righties that post here keep using that word. I do not think it means what they think it means.

      If there were ever any doubt as to the fact that there is no "straight" news at faux, this removes it. These buffoons at faux create their own "news". Again, the faux nooze mantra:

      If Obama were impeached, he'd immediately "acknowledge" that the Republicans have "legitimate concerns" and would pledge to "work harder" to "bring both sides to the table for the good of the American people."

      He'd also find a way to blame "Congress"- not the Republicans- for the impeachment proceedings. He'll decry the lack of bipartisanship. When Progressives attack the Republicans for their shameful time-wasting, the White House would express "dismay" at the "unfortunate, unproductive language" from "certain members" of the Democratic party. (Heck, before his second term is over, I fully expect the President to refer to it as the "Democrat" party.)

            His satire is bullsh!t, when I start seeing jjamelle for President signs floating around, I may reconsider my conclusion. I like our Presidents to come with bigger brains than mouths....or egos. Do you think talking sh!t about someone increases your stature or diminishes theirs?

              What the hell are you talking about? Obama has knuckled under time and again to the Republicans. A large amount of progressives have come to this conclusion.

              Obama's a great guy, a lousy negotiator, and apparently not as savvy a politician as we gave him credit for as his wishy-washy approach has sapped a massive amount of support. These are the facts.

      Aha! I knew their so called "sure-win" was a lie.

      Why would they need to even suggest an impeachment if the guy is "doomed" to fail against mighty Perry and untouchable Bachmann?

      because behind the propaganda, they know they will lose. And as they learned with Clinton, if a democrat is doing well for the economy, then their only way to seize power is to find a reason to impeach.
