I'm afraid the number of politicians holding the founding principles and the Constitution in high esteem is somewhere around zilch.
On that we totally agree.

He was saying that when the country was founded, women couldn't vote, and there was slavery. I thought that was pretty obvious.
I know what he say you moron, but it was pointless to the conversation.

But most of what you and your ilk say is.

Congrats to Obama. President of the U.S.A. Not my choice but he won fair and square. No whining like some kind of democrat! I love this country and respect it's duly elected president.
Cheers! God bless the USA.
Just minutes after you post this comment the mongs in the shallow end of the gene pool started splashing about. It appears that whining ain't limited to democrats.

The Impeachment Process
In the House of Representatives
The House Judiciary Committee decides whether or not to proceed with impeachment. If they do...
The Chairman of the Judiciary Committee will propose a Resolution calling for the Judiciary Committee to begin a formal inquiry into the issue of impeachment.
Based on their inquiry, the Judiciary Committee will send another Resolution to the full House stating that impeachment is warranted and why (the Articles of Impeachment), or that impeachment is not called for.
The Full House (probably operating under special floor rules set by the House Rules Committee) will debate and vote on each Article of Impeachment.
Should any one of the Articles of Impeachment be approved by a simple majority vote, the President will be "impeached." However, being impeached is sort of like being indicted of a crime. There still has to be a trial, which is where the US Senate comes in.
In the Senate
Wait..... what was that? There still has to be a trial?????????? That's where the Senate comes in??????????
The Articles of Impeachment are received from the House.
The Senate formulates rules and procedures for holding a trial.
A trial will be held. The President will be represented by his lawyers. A select group of House members will serve as "prosecutors." The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court (currently John G. Roberts) will preside with all 100 Senators acting as the jury.
The Senate will meet in private session to debate a verdict.
The Senate, in open session, will vote on a verdict. A 2/3 vote of the Senate will result in a conviction.
What is your point Mona?

Bill Clinton was impeached, plain and simple. That never changes, he will always be an impeached President.

The fact that the Senate failed to convict doesn't change the fact he was in fact impeached.

I am looking at general contractors who will excavate part of my land, place the cargo containers in the excavation, and then bury them (leaving some openings of course). I will then convert them nito a beautiful undrerground home (where the temperature remains a constant 55 - 60 degrees year-round), and I will be "off the radar screens" and away from the prying eyes of The Obamanaic's black helicopters and Kenyan thugs and henchmen.
I was going to say that it looks as if you were dropped on your head as a baby. But it is apparent that it was more like someone grabbed you by the ankles and tried to bash their way through a brick wall.

True, I just don't know anyone in New England who walks around saying "North Easter". I am surprised to see it even used.

I'm not in NE. I'm a bit south. From further south even, with PA and Iowa roots. I thought sounded a bit thick the first time I heard it mentioned up here. Kind of like Foxy.

Again, I see you are trying to say something intelligent, but all I hear is childish bantering.
