Oh, for god's sake, they aren't even under the most right of right wing wet dreams similar.

So if we can dispense with the hyperbole, and discuss the issue as it is, while the charges are serious, most nonpartisan legal opinions, from the right, left and center don't place much stock in whether or not this is even a violation of Section 600 much less anything approaching bribery.

As for an actual impeachment, well if the Clinton affair is our guide, the Republicans can waste a whole lot of time, but the reality is you will never have the votes in the Senate do anything about it.

You need to go back to that other site that I know you are a part of.

I don't like Obama's policies. However, I am undecided about impeachment. I think we need to appoint an independent prosecutor to find out what really happened. I think the story given yesterday was a little "fishy."

Basically, what I heard yesterday was the White House telling the White House that it didn't do anything wrong. We can't police ourselves in this country. If the White House really didn't do anything wrong, why not allow for an independent investigation?

I agree, an independent investigation would clear everything up or bring everything down. But I'm thinkinfg they would not allow it to go to an independent until they vacuum every speck of dust with this.

Oh MY God. The president's Chief of Staff offered someone a job and the RW wants to crucify the Administration. What a waste of perfectly good bandwidth.

Let's rephrase that in a manner that fully describes the circumstances. The president's Chief of Staff, under authorization, no doubt, from the President offered a Congressman, to wit "Sestak" a Congressionally-funded (in full or part) position in exchange for not running for the Democrat parties candidate for Federal office (to wit a member of the United States Senate).

Now that accuracy is in play, what response can you now give??

Even with your dubious fact situation, there's nothing there. It's the second most common practice in Washington. Boinking the staff being the most common.

There will be no independent investigation. The Republican can start impeachment proceedings in the House.... If they had the votes..... which they don't.... If they have the balls.... which they don't.

Did anyone hear the Republicans screaming impeachment when Cheney called Pawlenty and made promises so Pawlenty wouldn't run for Senate?
