There are many people I respect on here, so it seems very odd to me when they go so off base with critiques on their own writings.
Ah but do those Congressional Democrats claim to be with them?
"Ever heard of Bernie Sanders"
You know what reading comprehension is? I did say, "and the one or two Indepenants."
Guess what Sanders is? Think really hard on it for a minute or two. :)
But I could give you a half a point since he described himself in line with Democratic Socialism...pity that's not at all the same as Marxist Socialism that you mentioned.
Lol...yeah because I point out every single mistake you do and throw an insult in there for good measure. Don't compare apples to oranges Tired, it won't serve you well here.
"The real power is in the committee heads, appropriations etc."
True but most of those people have been in Congress longer than just one term.
"than these Marxist socialist s in power now"
Which is quite easy since there are no Marxist socialists in our govt, just Democrats, Republicans and the one or two Indepenants.
"I want secure borders low taxes, smaller govt, free markets, equality for all. Crazy right."
Not at all. Most people want these things. But most people also want cheap food, cheap labor, govt to save them when they get old or unable to work and want their interest group to be more equal than those they disagree with.
It still stands, if the Republicans somehow manage to gain control of Congress, the Dems will hold them back in true minority style. They have years of experience watching the Republicans do it.
That and Obama has no issues with vetoing anything that comes his way. Unless the Republicans can override him, they will be a lameduck Congress of sorts for the next few years.
My apologizes, I meant the Senate. Don't be too gracious in your everyday life ;)
The Republicans have a habit of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Everyone on the Right believed Fox when they said Obama would lose and they were epically incorrect.
No one in Congress really wants Obama impeached because they will want their person that becomes the next President to get away with what Obama is doing now. Congressmen and women are hypocrites.
The sad reality is that the Republicans are too weak politically do proceed with Impeachment Hearings so that are kissing up to their base with this lame impeachment-lite stuff before their vacation.
Now they can scurry home and tell their people they are doing something about Obama while not doing anything at all.
Sueing the President will not lead to anything. Obama will finish out his term, the Dems will raise a lot of cash, if the Republicans win the House it will be by a narrow margin and then the Dems will obstruct them at every turn. Business as usual.
"to talk about is somehow worse than doing it.."
Oh no...talking about it makes a little bit of money for the Dems. Actually doing an impeachment hearing would make a lot of money for the Dems. The Republicans in Congress did learn something during Clinton's impeachment hearings.
In the end, none of the Republicans in Congress really want Impeachment, on the Far Right base wants that and they can't think clearly.
"there is none"
Nope just a lame attempt at impeachment-lite by cowards that don't have the balls to do a real impeachment hearing.
"House resolution 1258; sponsored by Dennis Kucinich.."
Yep, a Dem wanting to impeach a Republican President. Not that shocking but wait..when was this done...in June 2008?
Hmmm...2008...why is that date important. Oh right...election year. Not to mention that Bush was going to be gone in seven month had nothing to do with this political fluff.
There is something else, the Far Left wasn't as vocal about impeaching Bush in 2008 as the Far Right seems to be with Obama now.
"Obama should be impeached for encouraging children to come here under inhumane conditions."
They left their own countries under inhumane conditions.
Given the state of some of the South American countries these people come from I can't blame them one bit for wanting to get out.
The Pilgrims did the same exact thing. The left their homes due to hostility etc.
And when they and others in later years got here they respected no ones claim to the lands over here. They took what they wanted. We have been and will always be a nation of immigrants.
I am going to point out something to you.
One month after 9-11. The southern border should have been sealed. It wasn't.
Why did the last president who had a massive terrorist attack happen on his watch decide not to seal up a possible entry point for further attacks.
You complain about Obama not doing anything at the border when others are just as guilty and more glaringly so given the fact they had a huge incentive to do so.
How do you know the House will not impeach obama?
The present senate would not convict him, but it is not certain that the House would not impeach him. The senate is not needed to impeach him. That is up to the House.
It would not he smart to impeach him, but many of us believe he deserves it.
"Even some democrats.."
Bet that those are Dems that are running for reelection.
1. He never encouraged any children to come here illegally.
2. He won't be impeached because he did nothing impeachable.
3. He won't be impeached because the Republicans are being wusses politically. Come on...sueing the President? It's just a lame ploy to keep the Far Rigth nutjobs happy. It won't go anywhere.
Obama should be impeached for encouraging children to come here under inhumane conditions.
Myth ,you mean a white guy with an unquestionable birth certificate?
Obama is being sued for unconstitutional acts. Even some democrats say he cherry picks the laws of our country.
"Why wouldn't we blame obama.."
Perhaps something called reality could be a good reason. Unlike what some on the Far Right fears, Obama is not an Emperor. If their is a failure in govt, it is usually due to both the Executive and Legislative branches and not just one.
