It's going to be a shiatshow if the GOP takes the House.  Biden, along with most of the Cabinet, will be impeached over the course of the first six months.  I would also bank on a month or longer shutdown when it's time for the first budget to get done.

The GOP never got over Nixon resigning in disgrace.  Turns out he had more decency than any Republican since.

It also helped that the GOP at the time would have problem impeached him and I don't know if acquittal was a certainty.  Trump's GOP had zero chance of convicting him.

The GOP is going to take over the house. Probably the Senate, too. May as well start panning for it.

The GOP leadership of both chambers visited Nixon in the White House and bluntly told him they would side with the Democrats to impeach and convict him so fast he wouldn't even know what hit him.  Nixon had planned to fight every step of the way, but decided to resign after being told he was going to lose so hard his grandchildren would feel it.  Please note that this was not because the 1970s GOP were some sort of moral paragons.  They wanted to wipe the Nixon stink off before the Democrats used it to tar and feather the whole lot of them  They were vile and heinous traitor-terrorist like always, but also saw Nixon as expendable - or more precisely, they could turn him into their martyr prince, but you need to kill someone (or at least their career) before you can make them your martyr..

Goldwater went to the White House and told him there were over 300 votes for impeachment and at least 80 for conviction.

Even in their wildest flights of fancy, the GQP are not going to get 67 Senate seats - or even 65 with Manchild and Sinnerella.  A GQP House could impeach all day every day and not budge Biden

That has nothing to do with anything.  The Senate has to have a trial for an impeachment.  A majority in the Senate doesn't matter.  Having a majority in the House is all that is required.  But without 67 votes, it is all just frippery.

A trial is whatever the majority decides it is. Dems in control means they wrap it up in a few days and move on with business. GOP in control means weeks of witnesses that have better things to do.

Even if conviction is impossible, the level of harrassment will have an effect. And of course the media will cover it as "serious business".

Let them do it. They will overreach the fark out it, and it should backfire on them. No sane person will ever think both of Trump's impeachment trials were a shiatshow. I'm sure a few GOP Senators thought it was justified but could not vote to impeach him.  Not one GOP Senator will think privately that impeachment Biden is justified, but they will all vote 'yes' to impeach him... and a majority of people will not look down on all Democratic Senators that voted 'no' to impeach Biden.

"Young people in the 1990s watched Bill Clinton work with Republicans - to overhaul welfare, try to cut Social Security, deregulate Wall Street - only to see them turn around and impeach him. In the 2000s, they watched Democrats halfheartedly support a war they opposed. Then Obama tried to compromise with Republicans on the size of a post-crash stimulus and the nature of the Affordable Care Act.

None of it calmed Republicans, as younger lawmakers see it, so why not try something else?

[...]

In the absence of an affirmative agenda the party can agree on, the Democratic establishment needs something to inspire voters to show up, and fear of Republicans - and Trump - fits the bill.

For the newcomers, this is completely foreign. To them, Republicans shouldn't be feared, they should be beaten. Ocasio-Cortez told me that she treats Republicans like buffoons because that's how they've behaved for as long as she can remember. 'Even before I was of voting age, I saw Republicans accuse the Obamas of doing a 'terrorist fist bump,' so they've been clowns since I was a teen,' she said."

Perhaps, but if Republicans control the Senate they'll hold the trial anyway and make it the shiatshow of the century. Literally nothing else will get done.

There's a nasty little ambiguity in the constitution - conviction requires two-thirds votes of those PRESENT.

Democrats will have to live in the chamber 24/7 to prevent a midnight conviction. And if they can get Biden this way, they'll get Harris, and the Republican Speaker will take over.
 
2022-05-22 7:02:58 PM  
If they get the House and the Senate, they can make Trump the new Speaker of the House (yes really) impeach Biden and Harris, and have him be president again.

Even if it isn't Trump, it could be another Republican.

They way they've shredded our other norms, it wouldn't surprise me if they continued in that direction.

Impeachment will soon go the way of the filibuster...it will be automatic when opposing parties control the House and the Presidency.  The Senate will then determine if there's any crimes to consider.

Might have been a good idea not to 'protest vote' against Hillary, don't ya think?  Might have been a better idea to stand up to the far right long, long before they had made enough progress to have a hope of a major victory.  Maybe protected education, taken a stand against hate speech and propaganda networks.  Those might have been good.

The US is very, very close to failing because the system is so corrupted it may no longer be able to protect itself.

If the ballot box is no longer viable because the base system plus GOP corruption is enough that they will successfully control the executive as they've taken over the judicial... you're left with the ammo box, flight, or subjugation.

Personally, I hope it's the ammo box, because I don't relish living next to a US where the fascists have won and have the keys to the world's largest military.

edmo: A toast to President Harris.


I'm sorry but she's never been popular - except among affluent ecru VBNMW women who think stanning for a tough-on-crime black woman gives them street cred so they can talk about their one black friend. It'll take way more than "at least she's not the GOP candidate" for her to even be competitive.

amazing that the guy who was second place in both 2016 and 2020 dem primaries is 'uNeLeCtAbLe' yet the person who got her ass clobbered early the in primaries, has never been popular among her own identity group, and was chosen as running mate only because Biden would've been in deep doodoo had he not chosen someone that covered both 'black' and 'woman', is somehow a viable candidate.

And Mitch would not be able to get anything done because the Senate would be constantly holding the farcical trials.
