    This goes back to having a vision (ideology) or having a career.   Cutting the baby in half is a solution but not a desirable outcome.    Obama campaigning on one thing and doing another exposes his duplicity and makes him a liar.  Even a careerist has a responsibility to the duties of the job.   He took an oath.   If he can't optimize his career and do his duty that also makes him a cheat.  

    What we need is a Democrat in the White House.

    •  So you'll help Rep. Issa with impeachment (5+ / 0-)

      proceedings against Obama? Because if you really believe what you just posted then you must believe the President needs to be impeached. Or if not then what does that make you?

      Sorry conservatives, but Occam's Razor isn't a beard trimmer for jihadists. What it means is I don't have to accept your crazy-assed theories as an alternative to reality.

        If that's the case, we should have impeached all of them starting with Reagan.

        mention an impeachable offense?  You are really off the deep end!

        An idea is not responsible for who happens to be carrying it at the moment. It stands or falls on its own merits.

          a crime worthy of impeachment surely cheating and lying are. (Just ask Bill Clinton about that) It's pretty clear the comment I replied to wants the President thrown out of office. Remind me how that happens?

            The last I checked, Mr. Obama very adamantly declined to have BushCo prosecuted for being fucking war criminals.

            What is your criteria for such a violation?

            •  Well then, prosecute him for that too. (6+ / 0-)

              The President has disappointed liberals and progressives. So let's call him a bunch of names, label him with something and feel good about ourselves.

              Or get out there and change him.

              The KXL work is making some traction, even TransCanada is admitting it's effed up their plans. The LGBT community got Obama to change his views on DOMA. The man doesn't have an inflexible ideology -- but what the fuck is wrong with that?! I don't want an ideologue for President.

                What would you suggest, exactly, to get him to prosecute his predecessor for war crimes?

                Your examples have to do with policy, and absolutely nothing to do with people in power who abuse that power to the point of annihilating another sovereign nation illegally. Frankly, I don't think that it's my job or your job or anyone else's job to motivate him to this end--that much is part of the damned job description.

                 If the man doesn't understand things like "the Geneva Conventions" or the Constitution, we all have a serious problem.
