The ONLY things the GOP need to do IF they take Congress is getting this country back on track. The nation is divided enough as it is. Impeaching Obama would step things up 10 notches on the divisive scale and it would be down right ugly.

My advice to them, take Congress, SHAPE UP, learn from your stupid mistakes, stop the good ole boy nonsense, start working for the people, and remember exactly why some of us our angry. We arent angry just at Obama and some Democrats, we are angry at atleast 75 percent of you for forgetting what your suppose to be there for and WHO YOUR BOSS IS! Its us! You will, eventually, be held accountable

God I hope not. Don't get me wrong, I can't stand Obama and I hope the GOP blocks everything he wants to pass, but impeaching him would cause a ton of rucus for no gain (seeing as how Biden would just take over) and would cause a big backlash. No thank you.

If Republicans did impeach him it would be because he and his administration refused to uphold the constitution and enforce the laws of the land. The federal government`s statement of refusal to enforce the federal law on illegal persons caught by Arizona police is an impeachable offense due to the Constitutional Oath.

Again......if George W wasn't impeached for failing to protect American borders and enforcing anti-illegal immigration laws, how can President Obama be impeached for the same?

The Republicans would never impeach Obama, just like no Democrats would ever impeach a Republican President. There have been many times when I thought it should happen, and it never did. They're the elite Political Class, and they have their own rules that benefit them all quite well. You vote for my pork, I vote for yours. Your President destroys the American economy and Middle Class, then ours gets to run mad and blame the previous guy.

Elected officials don't "work for us" any more than your Town Cop does when he pulls you over to give you a $350 ticket in a speed trap, or your local Town Property Assessor does when he assesses your house at 40% more than the year before, even though market prices have dropped about 20% a year for the past 3 years.

Government works for itself, no matter what the political advertisements try to claim.

They won't impeach since the pressing issue will be job creating to improve the economy. To impeach will break the nation apart.

For the most part, Republicans already do this by using the filibuster in the Senate.

Of course not, because they'd never want to waste tax money like that. What else are you going to suggest next? Spend millions to go after the guy for getting oral sex from an intern or something?
