  •  There is no provision for (0+ / 0-)

    two trials at the same time. Thier crimes would be different in anycase.
    Beyond that my point still stands. Lets say that articles of impeachment get through the house, before the trail starts, the VP resigns. No trial for the VP, and the President gets to appoint anybody he likes. Sure, the Senate has to approve them, but that just puts us in a trick bag. If we hold the trial first, then it looks like we are trying to force an unelected Democratic President on the country, and no Repug votes to remove. Or we vote down the president’s choice, same deal. Impeachment is more emotionally satisfying, but it really does not end the war. In fact that is my biggest argument against impeachment, it is a distraction from trying to end the war.  

    If you live in fear, then the worst that can happen to you has already happened

    •  I agree that the troops (0+ / 0-)

      must be the first priority, but for different reasons.

      I have tried to recreate the Democrats thinking. In doing so, I have run this through my mind so many times and under every option possible.

      This comment, Bring the troops home, this comment Realities of War, this comment I agree up to a point, and this comment Max1, sums up that reasoning.

      I would appreciate someone checking my analysis and seeing if it hold water. I have yet find a reasonable opposing point of view.

      I am predicting a sunk US ship and an attack on Iran in the near future.

      Perhaps it is a universal truth that the loss of liberty at home is to be charged to provisions against danger, real or pretended from abroad. ~J. Madison
