Do you understand you need a majority to impeach?
50 Dem votes won't do it
Do you think the Repug's would really jump on board for impeachment after they voted with Bush for the past 8 years?

I think a majority of those in Congress needs to lose their office. Both Republican and Democratic led congresses under the Bush admin have been incredibly disappointing. I'd like to see Pelosi go as well as John Boehner

Hi Folks I had to come and read the posts. I said to myself I won't say anything because I say a lot but I and my family are watching the news right now...hey I haven't liked this eithter...but its scarey.. all the news are saying worst figures since...saying depresssion...meeting payrolls..this is nuts...I just got this off the wire ..."The House quickly divided into hostile camps on what had intended to be a bipartisan bill, with both sides saying the other had not held up its end of the bargain. Indeed 40 percent of Democrats and two-thirds of Republicans opposed the legislation in the 205-228 vote against the bill. " so I may be missing something but I heard something like they needed 16 votes ..feel free to correct me nicely its ok but go easy I have massive indigestion with this whole thing...

It took a lot longer than 10 years to build up to this...and Pelosi isn't slowing it down...she wanted it passed ASAP and is making a mockery of the process along the way.

The republicans are slowing it down, first by insisting some of the pork be removed and that probably p*issed Nancy and Frank off. They wanted funds for Acorn!!

There is still pork in this bill and no guarantee it will be reasonable solution to the problem. If you want the markets to be up tomorrow then this is your bill. If you want more than what that shallow vision will provide then they need to look at alternative solutions.

The Swedes go out of their financial problems and we could learn from their solution.

As a Republican who was opposed to this stunning albatross bail out, I would thank Pelosi if I thought the failure was her fault. Her partisan speech was really stupid but I doubt that a partisan speech affected only thin-skinned Republicans. My guess it was the Bill itself and the public's opposition to it that doomed it to failure.

No they didn't, they never had a deal or the votes.

They need to quit monkeying around!!!
I actually think they probably did have the votes, Boehner and Blunt are pretty good at reading member sentiments.

Pelosi gave a really stupid speech prior to the vote, really a disgrace after all of the work done to put this together:
