  •  Impeachment is supposed to be the nuclear option (3+ / 0-)

    of U.S. politics. Threatening every president with it debases it. Actually impeaching every president who happens to be a Democrat, as Republicans seem to be trying in modern times, turns it into a cheap partisan gimmick.

    Just in passing, only two presidents have actually been impeached. Both were Democrats impeached by Republican Congresses in highly partisan affairs; neither was convicted. (Nixon doesn't count: although articles of impeachment were drawn up by the Ervin Committee, Nixon resigned before they could be voted on by the full House.)

      The old saying, "$h!+ or get off the pot" comes to mind. The very act of threatening impeachment 24/7 is tearing this country apart! I realize that that's what those sitting in the catbird seats want to do, but eventually, one would think their own base would tell them IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS to finally DO IT! Its like Tommy Lee Jones in MiB when he was going against Vincent D'Onofrio, jumping up and down telling him to go ahead and "go ahead and eat me!"
