Gay marriage supporters leaked confidential taxpayer information from the IRS and used that information against Romney in the last election.
Shame on them!
No, they didn't. Romeny was an idiot, and made a donation from a PAC, which reported the donation on a publicly available document.

You've yet to prove that was the case here.

"The money came via Romney’s “Free and Strong America” PAC during a time when NOM was heavily engaged in passing Proposition 8. HRC reviewed copies of Romney’s Free and Strong America PAC’s filings with the Federal Election Commission – and no contribution to NOM was disclosed in those documents. The filings are available from the FEC. But, HRC did discover an Alabama-based “Free and Strong America” PAC that in 2008 does disclose the $10,000 contribution to NOM.

Impeach Obama for high crimes and misdemeanors. In other words, impeach that pervert for pissing us off.

Pissing you off is not a high crime or misdemeanor.

What charge do you legitimately think Obama for which could or should be impeached?

Be specific.

A high crime and misdemeanor is whatever Congress says it is. Congress makes the laws, not a gang of perverts.

He pissed us off. That pervert is not a dictator although he wants to be one. So we need to teach him who is boss. We have to teach Obama and all of his perverted supporters a lesson.

Idiot, I am not president and therefore not have to live life according to that standard. If he does not like the conditions of his job, let him resign. We can hire somebody else.

Wow, you really aren't so bright, are you?
Obama's approval rating is still much higher than Bush's was for the majority of his term in office. YOU may be "pissed off" but the majority of the country is not. Frankly, you seem to live your life in a perpetual state of pissed off. Perhaps you should seek professional help? Maybe you should find a better online dating site?

There are no valid grounds to impeach the current executive, and even if there were, if you think that this congress could actually get together and pass articles of impeachment, I've got a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you.

Congress is controlled by the Opposition and for dang good reasons. We the people do not want Obama to run this country without plenty of checks and balances. Basically, that means Obama cannot do anything without approval from Congress. And if he sues executives order too much, he gets impeached. It is about that simple.

Are you really trying to make yourself out to look as dumb as possible, because it's working.

Congress passes legislation, and the president signs it into law and enforces it. Our current congress is utterly dysfunctional, and likely couldn't pass gas. It is hysterical that you think the administration is out of control, when in reality, congress isn't sending him anything to sign into law, and is wasting time in inquiries into fake scandals instead of doing their jobs. They are also dragging their feet on all manner of presidential appointments to various positions.

One would have to be pretty dim to think it is the executive branch that isn't functioning properly right now.

I under stand much of what you are saying, I mean you are from St Louis. That being said, the majority can not force them selves upon the minority. Afterall we do live in a Republic and not a democracy.

Obama is dysfunctional. But he had better understand that Congress makes the laws and he must obey the laws. If he does not get that, he will not only be impeached, he will be kicked out of office and possibly locked up in jail somewhere. You stupid Dummycrats do not seem to understand that this a republic. It is your stupidity that led to Civil War last time.

Actually, Congress makes legislation. that legislation only becomes law if the President signs it, allows it to sit on his desk for 30 days, or otherwise does not veto it. If he does veto it, it can become law if congress overrides the veto with a 2/3 majority. I don't see congress acting so unilaterally in its current incantation.

Well, so long as dullards like yourself are incapable of articulating an applicable charge, that is quite unlikely to happen. Just as it is unlikely that congress would be able to act together to pass articles of impeachment.

I understand fully well that this is a republic. I also understand that the Democrats are not the one's holding congress hostage by stalling every measure, and refusing to do their jobs. That would be congressional republicans.

If you are trying to make yourself look foolish and uninformed, mission accomplished.

It seems like the dictator wannabe looks at you from the mirror every morning.

As someone pointed out, if pissing others off were a crime, you'd have been sentenced to death by now.

Fool, I have no political ambitions and never have had any, at least not in the sense of wanting power in my own personal control. All I want is Freedom and Independence for my people, hence Black Power. Black Power means empowerment of Africans, especially poor Africans. This is why I have NEVER been a member of the Dummycrat Party. Instead I have sought to organize Africans into Independent African controlled political parties that are beyond the control of both Dummycrats and Republicans.

You are a liar and an idiot. You are trying to smear me and discredit me. Typical liberal fascism.
