  •  Impeachment: Good News (6+ / 0-)

    Remember the idiocy of the Clinton Impeachment?  Sure, the House impeached him, but at the end of it the country loved him.  His favorables went UP, not DOWN, during impeachment.  And let's face it, while there was little to no actual "dirt" on Clinton (except his philandering), there is even less on Obama.

    Let impeachment move foward.  Give us the Independant and Moderate voters while you're at it.  Let this dismay with the Tea Party sweep every single one of them out of office in 2012.

    Minority rights should never be subject to majority vote.

      Any thinking person is going to wonder why they are so obsessed with this issue.  The trend-lines are clear - support for marriage equality is increasing.  I'm not even sure it will energize the base.  And I can't see how anyone who doesn't already hate Obama will be converted by this.

    •  Actually it is great news. Not only will (0+ / 0-)

      it make Obama even more popular and the GOP much less popular than they are now but it might be enough to get Obama to realize that bipartisanship with the current GOP is impossible.  Of course, that is only if he doesn't just decide to do the "bipartisan" thing and resign.
