Impeachable offenses

How many impeachable offenses does a guy have to rack up before he actually gets, you know, impeached? obama has been collecting thses like folks used to collect S&H Green Stamps, but yet nothing has happened in our checks and balances system to check his power trip and create some balance.

He is willing to trade five taliban heavy hitters for one deserter, thus trying to close Guantanamo one deal at a time (blowing decades of policy about not negotiating with terrorists also) but he is willing to leave a Marine in a Mexican jail without a murmer.  How about trading some of the illegals in American jails for our Marine?  Oh wait, Mexico does not want their detritus back, so no joy on that......

Impeachment is not about what the president does or fails to do. It is about getting a 2/3 majority in the Senate to agree that they have to do something about it. That isn't going to happen. So, Obama really is above the law. So is Holder and anyone else who is on their good side.

You will never get a Senate democrat to vote to remove a president from his own party. Ever.

If one party has a 2/3 majority, then any flimsy pretext will work to remove a sitting president for even the stupidest of reasons.

It's about the votes, not the crime.

He will never be impeached. Being the first black president is huge protective magic.

I don't see, however, why people around him such as Eric Holder could not be knocked off their pedestals, leaving BHO standing "naked," so to speak.

Newreb is right...sigh

Newreb--then it's up to the citizens of the state of Nevada to make their boy do the right thing.

Chas--You're right. Don't know why someone hasn't taken him on since he is low-hanging fruit. Obama is nothing if he doesn't have his wall of protection.

NFO-Yes, but hopefully only temporarily.

And the last time they were asked to do that, they declined.

But even with Reid in office, if there is a 2/3 majority in the Senate, Reid would be in the minority and powerless.
