I am curious about something.
In 2004 Bush declared his victory over Kerry was a mandate.
Popular vote of 62,040,610 (50.74%) w/286 electoral votes to a popular vote of 59,028,444 (48.27%) w/251 electoral votes

The MSM agreed and ran with the notion.

With Obama v Romney the tallies were:
Popular vote 61,212,366 (50.5%) w/332 electoral votes to a popular vote of 58,197,914 (48.0%) 206 electoral votes.

Those are almost identical results? Where is the cry of mandate? Not that I think either election was by any means though.

Read the articles of impeachment levied against Clinton. It is clear that the House of Representatives indicated that he was guilty, by VOTE, of two out of the four articles of impeachment. IOW, the House found no merit on two and found merit on two. Subsequently, the articles of impeachment were presented to the Senate, which exonerated him of both charges. IOW the House found him guilty (read the text) and the Senate found him innocent. Both of these bodies' findings were by vote. What can be equated to a grand jury hearing took place prior to the House vote in the drafting of the original articles of impeachment.
In an impeachment the house acts as the prosecutor, and the senate as the judge and jury, just because a prosecutor accuses someone does not make it a success.

If it has been a success, he would have been removed form office.

He was not

Under OBAMACARE they ARE required to do so if they have more than 15 employees.
So if a 16-year old entrepeneur as a lawn-maintenence business and has more than 15 high school kids working for gim, then under OBAMACARE HE must pay their health insuranc. THAT is the Marxist law now !
And John Roberts stupidly ruled that OBAMACARE is perfectly Stalinist and ok. What a dope !
Or he can limit each one to 35 hours/week and call 'em part time like MalWart (your source for cheap plastic crap) does.

"Success" has nothimg to do with an impeachment. He WAS impeached. That is a FACT of history. The fact that EVERY SENATE DEMOCRAT voted "not guilty", shows you that they wouldn't have found him guilty of anything, even if he executed someone on teh steps of The White House on tv.

But he WAS impeached.

Also, since an impechment is similar to an indictment by a grand jury, IF a citizen is indicted by a grand jury, and then found not gulty at trial, that does NOT negate the fact that the person WAS indicted, and if he were ever asked under oather: "Have you ever been indicted for ANY crime ?" To be truthful and avoid a possible perjury charge, that person would have to anser "YES".

It DIDN'T "FAIL" ! He WAS IMPEACHED ! Ask an attorney or a law professor.

Impeachements do NOT "FAIL" or "SUCCEED". They occur or they don't occur. Clinton's impeachment DID occur. He WAS impeached. It's a fact of history.

It takes 2 houses to fulfill an impeachment, if the impeachment had been successful Clinton would have been removed from office, he was not because the impeachment brought against him in the house, failed in the senate, and died there.

Just as in any trial the accused is acquitted, the accused suffered no consequences

Typical stupid Democrat bitch. I could care less about Obama. My homo-politico-erotic urges only apply to House Spkr Boehner and Senator O'Connell, and a few other top Republicans. My psychiatrist says my HPE is quite normal for men of my sexual orientation and background.

What really gets Robertson's goat? Along with the shocking discovery that porn isn't just a "guy thing," Robertson doesn't like author E.L. James' fashion sense.
In pure "700 Club" incendiary style, he describes the best-selling author as "a little housewife-y type who doesn't look like some glamour queen.
Speaking of porn, I'm a bit disappointed that Measure B passed.
My guess is filming will just move from the "San Pronando" Valley to what will soon be called "See me" Valley.

Me too. FOX is is fair and balanced, all the others are biased to one degree or another. I'd say MSNBC is the most "progressive" (commie).
