    The problem is -- it took Boehner how long to come up with THIS specious charge?
    They don't have an ACTUAL 'high crime or misdemeanor' to CHARGE the President with. And they know it. They ALSO know that the vast majority of their base doesn't really know that impeachment is a TRIAL and the "beyond a reasonable doubt" et cetera all apply.
    So they can TALK about it, but "I don't like his policies" or "I don't like his ____." is not a valid reason to bring articles of impeachment. And they know THAT, too.
    You know you are on shaky ground when Bill Kristol says impeachment is simply not a option. (Admittedly, he expressed this while putting down Sarah Palin, but facts is facts.)

      twice. The first time was when he laid out the plan to kill Hillarycare in 1993, because

      Passage of care plan, in any form, would guarantee and likely make permanent...the largest federal entitlement program since Social Security. Its success would signal a rebirth of centralized welfare-state policy at the very moment we have begun rolling back that idea in other areas.

      But the...proposal is also a serious political threat to the Republican Party...It will revive the reputation of the party that spends and regulates, the Democrats, as the generous protector of middle-class interests. And it will at the same time strike a punishing blow against Republican claims to defend the middle class by restraining government.

      The sum of all GOP fears
