Has the entire republican party gone mad, I had respect for Tom Coburn and on most issues he was a moderate but this looks like he has lost it.

Quote:

Wednesday town hall meeting at Oklahoma's Muskogee Convention Center.

BuzzFeed reports Coburn said
impeachment is "not something you take lightly, and you have to use a historical
precedent of what that means," noting that he feels there is a great deal of
"incompetence" in the Obama administration.

"I think there’s some intended violation of the law in this administration,
but I also think there’s a ton of incompetence, of people who are making
decisions," Coburn said.

"Those are serious things, but we’re in a serious time," Coburn continued. "I
don’t have the legal background to know if that rises to high crimes and
misdemeanor, but I think they’re getting perilously close.”

It seems that the Republicans need a refresher course on what exactly a President can be impeached for. Nothing Obama has done, is reason for impeachment.

He's absolutely right. Have *you* gone mad?

Rhetorical question as the answer is obvious.

He's absolutely right in that there are many people making a lot of decisions (some stupid, some not). None of that however is reason for impeachment.

Do you know what "misdemeanors" mean?

If Obama is, against all odds and rationality, impeached, then Joe Biden gets the job.
Then Joe will run in 2016 as an incumbent President. Adios Republican White House for another 4 years, and Biden can run again in 2020, once again as an incumbent. Since an incumbents' odds of winning are always greater than a challenger, Biden will govern until 2024.

By then, the Repubs will have been out of power for 16 years, and an entirely new crop of politicians will be on the scene in both parties.

Sounds brilliant to me. Either way, the Democrats win, and win, and win again. Stretching an 8 year Democratic administration to 16 years is a fair trade for losing 3 years of a President who still has a high favorability factor. It will make Joe's first election a skate around the park.

By the time the winning streak is over, so is the Tea Party, Limbaugh, Rove, and all the knuckleheads who wanted the impeachment. They will all be long gone by 2024.

Go for it!

I guess the Dems had gone mad back in 2008. Apparently they've recovered to the point of infallibility now though according to the "modern progressive". But.....let me guess....that was warranted and this is racism

Coburn is perilously close to being insane.

Is this like almost pregnant?

I say crap or get off the pot. There is more than enough corruption to kick this guy to the curb.
