so you think the impeachment was a total success, it stated in the articles of impeachment to remove the president from office... did that happen? Did a single thing the impeachment stated succeed?
Nope….. not a single thing.
A total waste of time and money
If you call that a success, then I congratulate you on the success of Mit Romney’s bid for the presidency, You should be proud and happy that it was such a resounding success.
No wonder you guys keep losing, you don’t know what success or failure even is.
I didn't vote for Romney! Ew!!!!!!!!!

"Wherefore, William Jefferson Clinton, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States."

Yes. He was impeached. He was acquitted at trial. He was not removed from office and he was not disqualified to hold another office.

How can a President be impeached if the impeachment fails?

Bobby Jindal says this about Republicans:

Dumbed-Down Conservatism Must Go,'Stop being the stupid party' and playing with your supporters lives.

We cannot be, we must not be, the party that simply protects the rich so they get to keep their toys.

I agree, passed the house on partisan lines, and failed in the Senate on partisan lines that could have been predicted long before it even started. We knew the result of both votes before they were taken.

He was impeached by the house, I never said otherwise, and then that impeachment failed in the senate.

like any criminal charge that goes to a trial, the prosecutors decide to press charges ( the impeachment ) it goes to trial ( the senate ) and there the outcome is decided, succeed or fail.

There are good reasons to go through the expense of an impeachment if it ever becomes necessary.
It can be very useful and necessary. That's why we have it. We can just cut off foreign aid to one of the smaller countries that hates us for a day or two, that will more than cover the expense.
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.

Let us try putting it to you this way...

For argument's sake let's say I was accused of a crime. A grand jury hands down an indictment finding reason to go to criminal court with the charges. I go to criminal court and have a jury trial. The jury finds me innocent. Did the grand jury fail with the indictment?

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.

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.
