If the House were to impeach, do you think the Senate would vote to find him guilty?

Unfortunately no. One can only hope the senate would do the right thing but birds of a feather stick together. I hope the 2014 elections change the power in the senate then maybe.....

I would like nothing better, but it will never happen. Too many spineless wimps in Washington afraid of being called the R word... (No not republican).

Tom Coburn, R-Okla., called President Obama a friend but cautioned that he was “perilously close” to meeting the Constitutional standard for impeachment.

Ted Cruz was asked why Obama has not been impeached. He gave the realistic answer: Because we don't have the votes.

The article then discussed that impeachment was a "political" measure
, the commission of impeachable offenses is of far less moment than the lack of a political appetite.


Every political choice has consequences. The Framers intended impeachment as the ultimate accountability. Without at least the credible threat of it, there is no realistic checking of a president who seems increasingly disposed to abuse his awesome powers,

I guess this is the answer to the question I've asked a couple of times ... impeachment is the only thing that could put a check on an executive who exceeds the Constitutional executive powers, but impeachment requires strong convictions on the part of the Congress who would take the step of impeachment.

I cannot imagine what it would take for Congress to impeach Obama. Perhaps had he written a letter to Lois Lerner telling her to target Tea Party groups with the IRS, that might have done it. If anyone could prove he actually gave an order to "stand down" at Benghazi, that might cause enough of an uproar to do it. I cannot imagine that any such proof will ever be available.

He will finish his term, and go on to make a bazillion dollars in honorariums (like the Clintons). If we are very unfortunate, some D POTUS will appoint him to the Supreme Court. History will be his judge. History will also judge those who allowed his use of executive power in the ways he has used it.

Impeaching Obama is about like trying to take a child away from it's biological mother in Oklahoma..........you would have to prove that they were axe murders before you would have a chance.
Joke ladies and gentlemen although said with TIC.

I heard. The clip on the radio... He was dancing better than Fred Astaire... No one, I repeat.... No one in Washington has the intestinal fortitude to try it. They would be vilified from the word go. It's not worth the media flogging they would take.

You got that right !
I believe that I remember seeing a picture of Obama and Coburn where Coburn had his arm around Obama.
Lost my respect right then. Also Coburn has said a couple of things that really bothered me when I heard him say them. Can't quote them now but it got my attention big time. No one has the nerve to tackle this.

impeaching BHO solves nothing, it will actually make it tougher to unseat the Liberal Dem agenda, we as a country are better off letting his total incompetence showcase just how flawed their agenda is and use it to defeat them at the polls in 2014/2016...taking back the Senate and maintaining the House will all but make BHO a mere figure head for the remaining two years of his presidency and make people take a hard look before voting for Hil or another Dem for the forseeable future

If President Obama were impeached and convicted, how would you like Joe Biden for President.

As has been stated innumerable times...elections have consequences. Sadly those consequences don't seem to provide any education for the Obamaites and their 'white-guilt' brethern. As long as the "prince of fools" continues to make the morons of this nation believe he is 'intending' to solve their problems, these moronic fools will never see nor believe what he is really causing to happen. The Al Sharpton crowd of ignoramuses don't give a FRA about anything but their handouts from the fed, and until that trough is sucked dry, they will NOT believe their messiah has anything to do with causing the problem.

Since we all know there is nothing that can be done to change the inhabitant of the WH, why spend any time even discussing it? He as much as donned a bullet-proof vest when he selected Biden as his veep.

The only area the sane voters of this nation have to work on is to see that the legislative branch is not allowed to continue along its path to socialism. The mid-terms in 2014 will have the last and only chance to correct that path. Short of that happening, this country will be in a dooms-day trek for generations.

Trust me when I say, I'm not alone in my views of this upcoming election being a nation changer. Why do you think Obama is continueing his constant campaigning? He knows how incredibly important it is that he keeps his dumbed-down voters believing he will provide all their needs, by voting for their Democrat representation in congress and the senate.

If the fools in this country continue to vote in the control by this regime and its oligarchy of unionistas, what Obama has done with his violations of the Constitution will be a drop in the bucket to what he will do his last two years in office, not to mention the empowerment of all his bureaucrats.

It won't be enough for just you to vote in 2014, you will need an army of like-minded Americans to overcome what the fools have caused to happen in this nation. I don't know if we can raise that number that any longer care, but I do know, if we don't... this nation...the USA...is finished!
