Nicely done, Subby.

I love how McCain so often sounds dismayed by the retarded monster his party has created.

"While perhaps 'no expert' has made this claim, GOP strategist Karl Rove did assert after the election that Obama 'succeeded bysuppressing the vote.'"

Oh the irony.

Republicans whine and cry and stomp their feet and call any number of names whenever a democrat is in office. When none of that childish bullshiat works, they inevitably start babbling about impeachment.

I am surprised at McCain, though. I give the doddering old coward a week before he changes his mind.

The bill of impeachment could imaginably get the majority vote needed to pass the House. There is no way it would get the two-thirds vote in the Senate needed to remove President Obama from Office.

Please proceed.

Meh. There were plenty of hard-left whargarblers saying the same about Bush and Cheney in '04-06.

Then the Democrats got the House back, some of them got plum seats on the appropriations committee, and their talk went from "WAR CRIMES! IMPEEEEEEEEEACH!" to "Oh me oh my, would that be a haunch of steaming-hot defense pork for my district? Looks delish. I'll have two helpings, thanks."

If it passes the House, it will do damage to the Republican party that they will never recover from. Impeach a sitting president, over charges an eight year old are frivolous, when he's at his highest approval and you're at you're lowest? That would be political suicide. Even Boehner isn't dumb enough to let that happen.
I hope.

Thanks, Senator McCain, for your reply on the impeachment question.

I don't agree with you on somethings, but you do make some good calls too.

It's like they need reminding that they not only lost to an endangered incumbent with a huge recession hanging over his four years and questionable healthcare changes looming, but they lost BIG TIME.

Less irony than consistency.

Accusing your political opponents of your own biggest failings in a louder voice and way more often is rule 1 in the Karl Rove Political Playbook.

/Fun fact about that book, in hard copy the cover is made entirely from the skins of various endangered species.

If an impeachment vote gets to the floor, it's guaranteed to pass the House.  Any Republican who voted against it would face political death.

Any individual voting against it would suffer political death. The party voting for it would suffer its own death.

I'm beginning to see why Obama has let the debt ceiling discussions/fiscal cliff/sequqestration discussion go on. While its going on, it would be political suicide for the Republicans to try an impeachment. Fox News could have all the "March to Impeachment" flashy gaphics and marshall sounding music it wants, but in the end, all the American Public is seeing is that the Republicans are wasting time with this useless grandstanding while ignoring real concrete problems that need fixing.

It's nice to see that there is still a shred of decency left in the man - only a shred mind you, and by this time next week he'll have made some hateful comments again, but there is still a flicker of a conscience from time to time.

I'd be willing to bet good money that Boehner would pull out all the stops to prevent a vote from coming to the floor. The man may be a carrot, but he's not an idiot.

"I don't know exactly how to respond," he said. "I don't believe that voter fraud was a major factor in this. Let's be honest, there are numerous cases of voter fraud in this country and we have to take steps to prevent it."

Yeah, and by that you mean maybe 10, 20 votes nationwide?

A Bush-Cheney impeachment wouldn't be hard-left, it'd be the normal course of justice.
Left-right-center, according to a rule of law they should have been impeached, if not imprisoned for life or hanged.
It's just that the Democrats are either too corrupt, too spineless, and occasionally both to fight back against the far right fascist party that is destroying our country. I won't say both sides the same. The Democrats at least offer a more technocratic/scientific/sensible approach to farking us over, as opposed to the American Taliban theocracy and cult hijinks from the Republican Party.

What are the impeachable offenses that Obama has supposedly committed?

I don't know how many of you watched the vid, but the woman claimed that Obama's "crimes" were worse than Watergate.  Scarily, I think she seriously believed her own derp.

Right wingers seem to live in a completely alternate reality.  And, the blindsiding they got on election night -- when all the predictions of an easy Romney victory proved false -- hasn't broken them out of the spell.  They didn't wake up and realize that the right wingnut bubble cut them off from basic, demonstrable facts; they've decided to double down and claim that Obama only won because of fraud.

It boggles the mind.

Incompetence leading to the death of an American ambassador and three other Americans is, unfortunately, not a crime.

Neither is incompetence leading to the death of a border patrol agent.

Neither is incompetence leading to the armament of drug cartels.

This. If Richard Nixon was going to be impeachment, if Bill Clinton was impeached, Bush/Cheney should not only have been impeached for Iraq, they should currently be serving time in prison. In a just world, that would have happened, but then again, in a just world, Iraq would never have happened - the media would have exposed the lies, as they did with Watergate, and there never would have been a war.

I have to admire McCain for not calling the questioner a retarded dipshiat right in front of everybody.

But really, Obama has done nothing impeachable*.

* So long as you don't count the murder of innocent women and children in drone attacks.
* Or maintaining Bush's Orwellian surveillance state policies, esp. the PATRIOT act.

Let's just hope he isn't caught in a lying about a beejay-- that would be FAR worse than lying to start a war!

If I were a Democratic insider, I'd be all for pushing for impeachment to come up for a vote (however, ai'd maybe wait a couple of years to do it), just to every single Republican on record to see where they stand on whatever invisible "impeachable offense" they have on the President.

Hours and hours of news coverage of Republicans grasping for straws worked so well the last time they tried it.

There needs to be some sort of automatic counter-impeachment, whereby the House sponsors of a Bill of Impeachment for frivolous partisan reasons (i.e., the other party won the election) would lose their own jobs if it doesn't pass the Senate, simply for wasting the country's time and money.

It's amazing to watch, isn't it. My teabagger coworkers are the same way. They go on with passion, vitriol and hatred about Obama's subversion of the US. They've bought guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition because they are convinced Obama is destroying America. Really. It's bizarre, and it's only grown worse. The one thing they seem to have in common is that they listen to AM radio and Fox News exclusively.
