    • Statement by President Trump
So the GOPe is out there saying nobody in the GOP is talking about impeachment and here comes Rep King to scare the voters away...I mean stand up for the Constitution.
No matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God.  We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry, and violence.  We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.

Racism is evil.  And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans

-President Trump 8/14/17

He said it to Breitbart.  It's just red meat for the extreme right.  Even so, I wish everyone in the GOP would just STFU and not use the "i" word until after the election.

Hmmmm... lemmmesee here....

Your statement begs a question:
If the Republicans keep their majority in the House, and win a majority in the Senate, would you want them to start using "the i word" after the election ???

The answer ought to be:  only if we want a democrat party landslide in 2016.

Obama would have to do something spectacularly stupid to warrant being impeached. Right now there are no real grounds for it, and that will likely still be the case even if Republicans won the house/senate. What Oceander said above is true; beating this dead horse will only help the Democrats.

Perhaps.  As things stand now, no.  But there are a number of potential criminal matters being investigated and perhaps evidence will be unearthed.  Or OPapaDoc may do something that really pisses the electorate off, like grant a blanket amnesty to millions of people without congressional approval.  If that happens, and if the public starts clamoring for impeachment, then yes.

OPapaDoc has done enough to warrant impeachment by ignoring the law in releasing Guantanamo prisoners without prior notification of congress.  But unless there is public outrage, nothing can really be done.

Yes, if a solid foundation has been laid out to clearly demonstrate to the American public exactly why such a move is required.  We ain't there yet though, and as long as Harry Reid is able to obstruct the US Senate, any discussion of impeachment beforehand is a distraction from the job at hand, and that's taking control away from Harry Reid.

Impeachment is not about what the President might or might not do.  It is about what he has done that violates the Constitution and his Presidential oath of office.

The main problem as I see it is even if impeachment somehow got on the table Obama would probably be out of office before anything actually happened.

Yes, but if the public clamors for impeachment, and the GOP pursues it, and then the Dems impede it, that would be very beneficial politically for 2016.

Let him dig. He is digging himself and the entire Democrat/Progresive/Liberal movement into a big hole. Let him go. Let him dig.
 
He is far too stupid to understand what he is really doing.
 
i do not want to impeach the guy, I want him to go on with his 'fundemental transformation', because it hurts Blacks more than it does White people. Not that that is a good thing, but hey, that is what they voted for.
 
Let him go man, let him do his thing. He is hurting himseft. Let him go.

Why are there so many stupid people in politics?
Impeachment is a non starter, and it has the smell of the birther issue. It would rally the media, the Dem base, and concern moderates.

The House controls the purse strings. If Obama takes inappropriate actions, defund things until it hurts. Start with cutting the Executive travel budget.

Good question!  Perhaps because many of the smarter folk can't stand the level of smarminess most politicians wallow in.
