  •  huh? (5+ / 0-)

    What does that have to do with our convo? Why the evasion?

    Did you predict the Senate win?

    If not, please do not present your prognostication as fact.

    DO you have anything else to say (besides psychic prediction) about impeachment....any facts to back up your opinion that it won't happen?

    Or do you concede it is possible?

    If you concede, I would ask you to kindly stop trying to negatively influence opinion by stating your cynical  opinion as fact.

    •  I've given you many facts (0+ / 0-)

      that it won't happen. You just choose not to take them as facts because you don't like any of them. Facts:
      you need 17 Republican votes at least (16+one to offset Lieberman).
      That's assuming Democrats like the Nelsons, Prior, Landrieu etc. vote for impeachment (a questionable assumption to say the least.
      Republicans in Congress are unbelievably unified about even the most minor and inconsequential of issues
      Republicans held ranks even when it came to a President with 28% approval and a war not much above that
      impeaching the president means impeaching the standard-bearer of the party
      As Nixon showed, when the standard-bearer falls, the party falls
      Want me to continue with my facts? Or do you have some reason that none of those count?

      I want to win. You want to beat him, and that's a problem for me, because I want to win. -The West Wing
