Yes Clinton was impeached by a partisan vote in the house on Dec 18 1998

Yes the impeachment trial was voted upon in the senate, and failed by partisan vote on Feb 12 1999, and Clinton was acquitted.

Yes the Articles of impeachment specifically stated the penalty was removal from office.

Yes the impeachment failed in its every intent and goal as stated in the articles of impeachment.

Yes he was impeached, yes the impeachment ended in total failure at achieve any of its stated goals.

You have changed your tune from "Clinton's impeachment failed" to "The intents and goals failed" Very dishonest and cowardly.

NO you donít get it yet moron

I am willing to listen to actual arguments, but not from someoneís imaginary playmate, I donít care whatever God or Gods or Goddesses or families of Gods or Volcanos or whatever they happen to believe in tells them.

It is meaningless, and un-American. This is the land of the free, where justice wears a blindfold, blind to race, creed, color, sex, religion, orientation or national origin.

If Islam came here and tried to force all women here to wear a Burka I would be reacting the in the exact same way.

You have dishonestly changed your original assertion that "Clinton's impeachment failed" to avoid embarrassment at having your ass handed to you. You're not fooling anyone.

And then you falsely accuse me of lying, when you are the liar.

I am offended

I have never once called myself a Christian

What a disgusting insult!

I am tolerant of Christians that donít try and legislate their belief system on others, but donít you dare call me one of them.

I don't care if you call me a liar anymore, everyone knows it's not true. It's time I take you to task for your lies.

Tell us what is the difference between "Clinton wasn't impeached" and "Clinton's impeachment failed"? If it failed, then he wasn't impeached. He WAS impeached, it did NOT fail.

You have dishonestly changed your assertion from "Clinton's impeachment failed" to "...the intent and goals failed" Tell us why you are not a liar.

Also as an interesting aside, please tell us what were these "intents and goals"?

Of course you donít care

and again you are reporting things I never said, and you cannot find that I ever said

that is why you have to firmly established yourself as a liar, not once have I never said that did not happen and you fail again to find the post where I ever said that.

You remain a liar

further you post during the holidays that I am the one harping on the subject, but once again you expose yourself as a liar while you keep harping on that subject that I already determined you can never ever be honest about.

Of course it was a failure, we all know that.... but as you want to continue to harp on this subject I will continue my automatic response until you tire of it. You cannot contradict any of it, so the only resort you have is to lie.

You are, and remain a liar
