Sorry. His "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" was very poor acting.

<quoted text>Really? I expect the President to not blink and back down from this, I won't be satisfied with anything less.

My heart goes out to the people who are out of work over this issue, but the blame goes squarely on the shoulders of a faction of the Republican party that is forcing this issue. The Affordable Care Act, PASSED in Congress. When challenged on if it was constitutional or not, it was UPHELD by the Supreme Court (a Republican majority Supreme Court no less.) Now what we have is the Republicans refusing to accept that they lost and move on. What we have is a law that helps many people, and over political brinksmanship the Republicans are willing to hurt America to satisfy a faction in their ranks.

How would Republicans feel if they had a President in office that passed a law and that law stood up to every legal challenge and the Democrats tried to pull the same shit to make an end-run around the law and stop it? They would be furious. Even John McCain said that this was a pointless waste of time, they are NOT going to succeed in rolling back the AHCA, so they are just hurting America needlessly.

Congratulations Republicans!
Their not accepting it because the majority of Americans know it is bad for America. They are doing what the people want. The Dumbocrats only do what they want. The ignorant sheeple just follow them.

Hollywood Leftists will offer pap to disguise Obama's totalitarian method of governing. Clooney was primary in reacting to 9/11 by discrediting the United States. He and Obama were responsible for thousands of US military deaths in the War on Terror, which has been totally reversed with America in retreat since Obama became President. Their disruption of US resolve will never be forgotten. Their current support and arming of extremist rebels eating human hearts and using chemical weapons in Syria will not be forgotten. Their answer to these issues? Their answer is to confuse Americans by inserting anti-American queers into the military and purging high ranking officers in all Branches, who disagree in the mildest ways to these anti-American policies.
You are dillusional ;(

The Supreme Court doesn't pass or fail because of public opinion. Duh. It passed in Congress because of Dumbocrats. They don't really care about what is good for America. The ignorant sheep will follow.

The real communication problem here is that you don't understand what the context of what Impeachment means.

I understand completely. The House has to vote for it, then the Senate either agrees it acquits. If you are tried for murder and acquitted are you still guilty if murder? So he lied about a bj, big whoop. Newt was screwing around, that makes him the biggest hypocrite of all.

The Republicans spent years trying to find anything on him. All that money spent to uncover something that had nothing to do with the original investigations was a waste. How much money did Ken Starr pocket over a bj. You Wingnuts are all the same, you crow about the smallest things like it was an act of treason. Go back and read up on the whole thing and see how silly the Republicans were and how they lost elections because of it.

Uh, no, I don't remember that, because it didn't happen. He was brought up on impeachment charges by the House, but acquitted by the Senate.

You may like to fantasize that he was impeached, but it didn't happen.
