What a dope!
I see you're stuck on stupid again....

It is not the House's place to rule guilt. They can only accuse.

Remember? That example I gave you yesterday? The one you said was too long to read because you've not the attention span of a potato bug?

You really should've read it.

When was the trial that found him guilty of perjury? The house votes to impeach and the trial on the articles of impeachment is held by the Senate. Clinton was acquitted.

THE PRESIDENT'S ACQUITTAL: THE OVERVIEW; CLINTON ACQUITTED DECISIVELY: NO MAJORITY FOR EITHER CHARGE

The Senate today acquitted President Clinton on two articles of impeachment, falling short of even a majority vote on either of the charges against him: perjury and obstruction of justice.

While what you say is correct adn factual as far as it goes, Clinton DID admit to perjury, WHICH IS A SERIOUS FEDERAL CRIME, PARTICULARLY FOR A POTUS, and he DID agree to surrender his law license as part of his plea.

How many DISBARRED former POTUSes can you name ???

I hear that "Nor'easter Athena" is heading towards Long Island, the city, and jersey now, and there are still more than a million people in the area without power. Glad I'm not there now.

He is not going to understand, he has a vested interest in not comprehending.

In his case, it pays an emotional dividend for him to be ignorant

The House of Representatives IMPEACHED him. By virtue of a vote he was impeached on two of the four charges. Do not confuse a guilty verdict by trial with a finding of guilt by vote during an impeachment. Under impeachment proceedings it is the duty of the House of Representatives to either find the subject of the impeachment innocent by voting opposed to impeachment or guilty by voting for impeachment. If found guilty by the House the Senate then hears the case in trial format and either convicts or acquits.
As I said earlier, you're arguing semantics, poorly.

Thanks Winston. You're a smart and honest man. Would you tell Mona Lott yet again? He's wearing me out! But of course that is his tactic, "win" by attrition.

Careful! Mona Lott is just going to start a dopey argument with you. Say the storm wasn't named Sandy or something! Or blame it on Bush or Romney.

He'll go on and on until you're exhausted then he'll claim victory. It's his M.O.

Funny!

I'll endure the Obama victory gracefully. It's now time to pull together. I'm glad the election is over and that it was a clear victory no hanging chad nonsense. This is a great country. Congrats democrats.
Amen. Besides, I am predicting a Republican President in four years. The pendulum always swings back the other way. No point in getting hot & bothered. However, I'd like better selections in the future. I ain't gonna hold my breath though. Yes, I mean I want it tough to decide because I LIKE all of the candidates. By all, I mean the independent, the green, and whatever other parties are thrown at us. I don't want a tough decision because I'm picking between the equivalent of a glass shard in one eye or a severed thumb.

And since teh American people voted AGAIN to keep Republicans in the majority in theHouse Of Representatives, the "People's House" where all tax legislation must originate, The Republicans have a DUTY to the American people to OPPOSE ANY TAX INCREASES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER, and to OPPOSE The Obamaniac at ALL times, in ALL places, for ALL things. THAT is what the American people returned them to the Majority for !
Federal laws are written by the people's representatives in Congress, NOT the POTUS. Although he would certainly like to be, TheObamaniac is NOT a dictator.
SUPPORT THE 2ND AMENDMENT !
SUPPORT THE U.S. CONSTITUTION !
ALL OF IT !
I am sure glad to see that obstructionist government is the way you like it. Just don't bitch about it when the pendulum swings the other way. Maybe if they'd all start acting like adults and work on COMPROMISE morons like you would burrow into their home made container cave homes and stop annoying the sane ones with your drunken hysteria and conspiracy theories. I full well expect to hear from you about an alien abduction while you're out in the southwest.

You are confusing a guilty verdict by trial with a finding of guilt by vote during an impeachment, not I. He was found guilty of perjury and obstruction of justice on Dec 19,1998.
You are confused, not I.
