Anyone  who seriously considers impeachment of Obama is a brain-dead idiot.  I see Andy McCarthy fits in that category.

Why do something that has NO CHANCE OF SUCCESS?  Shades of the government shutdown.

I agree....focus on the election and let's revisit this next year if and when the Senate is out of Harry Reid's hands...

Agreed - but one proviso. Scandals are like pets. They die if left alone too long. So keep up the pressure on every scandal. Keep it fresh in the average Joe's mind.

There's too much material here for most people to process. Let the state candidates for office pick the thing that is most important for their state - some will focus on the carbon rules, some on the VA scandal, some on the immigration fiasco and so on. It doesn't matter if every scandal is covered. It only matters that the dims are out of power after Jan 20th.

I think there is a valid case to be made for impeachment.  I also agree it would be a stupid move at this point.  I can't help but think several of OPapaDoc's actions of late have been calculated to provoke GOP overreaction.  No sense playing into his hands.  Let the public express itself in November.  It will be here soon enough.

Why can't republicans be honest about this?  They aren't afraid it will energize the left, they're afraid of the race card.  It was almost the same situation with Bile Clinton but he was white so the house went ahead and impeached him.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

They aren't afraid of anything other than loosing their jobs! They aren't smart enough to figure out that MOST Americans would get behind any impeachment effort with GREAT vigor!

Agreed. And I also agree with sinkspur, why pursue something that can't possible do any good? EC makes a good point, keep the scandals fresh, November is on the horizon now.

I am seeing and hearing people in the blue part of Ohio expressing disgust with Obama. November has the potential to be good for the country.

What is concerning to me is, what will they do when it gets close to November and they are still mired in scandals?  We saw what they did when Benghazi threatened to take Obama down a few more notches, at a time when he could not afford it.  What have they got in the wings to bring out at the last minute to "save Obama" this time around?  You know they have contingency plans - they have to.

Sometimes you can dig a hole deep enough that even your contingency plans stink on ice. Let's hope that's the case.

Obama's not running.  It won't matter what they do.  The damage is done.

Let's be blunt here, the GOP can't organize an erection if you spot them a Viagra and couple co-eds.
