More GOP, Republican and Tea Party Nation members will be holding the bag if the financial stability of the USA goes over the cliff.

It's a safe bet they will not be able to hide from this one.

There is good reason to not go through needless expenses when you know you're going to lose. I've got a fair bit of time dedicated to court cases as an expert witness for the prosecution. We've picked our battles carefully, and save for a foul up by a DA we've had a 100% conviction rate with the team I've worked with over the last decade.
You noted the partisan nature of the Clinton trial. Correctly I might add. That is the way it would go down with Obama whether it is this Congress or the one just elected. The Senate is dominated by Democrats and they're not apt to hang one of their own.
I wasn't referring specifically to Obama. We need the ability to impeach the president. That's all.

No need to get all defensive for Obama! He'll do fine even if impeached, like you say.

Ah yes, in general it is a good thing to really have a big stick to reign in foolishness. Unfortunately that big stick gets wielded along party lines rather than actual justice.

Since when is pointing out reality getting defensive? It doesn't matter if Obama is guilty of something or not, just like it didn't matter if Clinton was guilty or not. Party lines are party lines. Unless there is no avoiding nailing one of them to the wall due to the nature of the crime and undeniability of guilt, a party is probably not going to hang one of their own unless he's really alienated himself tremendously.

With Clinton the proximity of him to the goods (his milk on a dress, dodgy testimony, etc.) was directly linked to him. With Obama there is a bit of separation regarding the four deaths and what was known about danger and when. If they couldn't prove Clinton was fibbing about things what makes you think they can prove a damn thing about this? That peek at Clinton's wedding tackle cost us 40 to 80 mil depending upon what source and what you include. I can see it getting way higher with the complexity of this one. In the end it'll have all the effectiveness of nailing jello to a tree.

Like Bill Clinton....Adultery is a crime....He got away it, too....
UNTRUE.

Cinton's act of adultery was NOT a crime. His lying underoath to a grand jury, which he admitted to, and was disbarred for, WAS a crime.

Patreus's adultery IS a SPECIFIED CRIME under the UCMJ. The maximum penalty is fordeiture of his pension (a considerable $200,000 a year for life, reduction in rank, forfeiture of all military benefits, and imprisonment for up to one year).

Now if we CANNOT expect one of the highest generals to obey teh laws, rules, and regulations specified in teh UCMJ, HOW can we expect anyone of lesser rank to do so also ?!

Time to get over it, it's the new law of the land.

The U.S. Supreme Court has pushed back by 10 days the date on which it will consider whether to review the issue of gay marriage in California, according to lawyers in the case

Not worried.

Recent decisions in DOMA have poised Prop 8 to potential review by SCOTUS over the issues of "suspect class" and "heightened scrutiny".

Uh-oh....that doesn't bode well for the anti-marriage equality side....

Besides: It'll all be over by June.

Hard to say but they aren't called Kristian KKonservatives by so many for nothing.
Apparently as long as they pray for the needs of someone’s soul they are absolved from having to care about their body and who is kidding who when they say they are "praying" for the sick, poor, less fortunate.
When you get to know some , you realize they operate on hate, hate is their fuel . The more hate and misery they can spread ,the happier they are.
The south has so many of them but politically they are not stupid and they attempt to win over as many non Christians as possible while laughing behind their backs because they feel non Christians are going to hell.
"Some conservative Christians hate our government and teach others hateful lying conspiracy theories in order to convince the simple and the gullible to support their agenda of hate. All this is contrary to the teachings in the Bible that tells us to obey and submit to government authorities that God places over us.
Some Christian conservatives want to do away with most government social programs that aid the poor. They believe that if government would get out of the picture people would be better off. Some fail to understand that most of the nation is not truly Christian and most in this nation will not take care of the less fortunate and downtrodden. In fact, I doubt if most conservative "Christians" would do very much to help those that are less fortunate than themselves either. "

Seems Christian conservatives would be into helping the poor, since Jesus was really into helping the poor.

Speaking of impeachment, lying about the events that led to the death of the U.S. ambassador to Libya might finally get Obama impeached.
You folks are just a bunch of desperate vultures trying to make political hay out of a tragedy. Sorry, but it's really a non issue when it comes to Obama's presidency.

We need the ability to impeach the president even if it is expensive (it's not). I am not in favor of reducing our freedom for any reason, certainly not just to save a little money.

If the president, any president, is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors, impeach the bastard and make him or her pay for it.
