    •  Can the republicans go down to 1 figure approval? (4+ / 0-)

      They have been trying to find some way to get out that black family in the WHITE house. DoDos seem to not have noticed even the own party is starting to notice and really really hate them... There are only so many fetishers  to go around and every grifter is sucking that teat dry....This is even weirder then the 60s.

    •  Impeachment is not a certainty by any means (2+ / 0-)

      I went out and looked up this article on about.com, since I had a note from my mother and was absent the day the House impeached Clinton so I don't remember the process, thank FSM. Basically, the House Judiciary Committee has to decide there's some grounds for impeachment, and then the House as a whole has to approve at least one of the Articles of Impeachment by majority vote. I find it hard to believe in a congress with a Republican majority of less than 20 that there would be enough Representatives to vote to impeach on anything the Teahadists could come up with.

      And as you say, even if they did, the Senate would never vote to convict.

      So basically what it comes down to is, when you consider their stand on the debt ceiling, the umpty-whatever votes to repeal Obamacare that were never going to pass the Senate anyway and now their willingness to turn the House into the Cirque de Impeachment du Never Gonna Happen, the party that would have you believe it's the Party of Fiscal Responsibility is revealed as the Party That Wastes Your Tax Dollars Hand Over Fist.

      If you can't say anything nice about the GOP, please post here more often.
