2. Hasn't impeachment started already on facebook?

Just because he won, I think.

38. Since the general understanding is that members of Congress can't be impeached

you will be waiting a long time for the proceedings you are predicting.

5. Not going to happen.

The last thing the House Republican leaders want is a full investigation of anything related to their golden boy and right wing operative Director Petraeus.

They also don't want Paula's ties to Fox News investigated.

So I don't see how there could be any link made.

9. And if they do?

They look like fools for crying wolf again and again and again. Not only that, we can easily shut them down with three words: Obama killed Osama.

Besides, no one outside of the Fox audience takes any of their whiny shit seriously.

10. Sure, just as soon as the GOP impeaches Bush for 9/11 while ignoring the PDB of 8/6/2001.

That failure of foreign policy and national security is the current bar for impeachment.

Anytime a Republican attacks Obama, point it out.

13. Everyone involved in this fiasco is a Republican

I don't think there are going to be an hearings in the House.

It sure is going to be interesting in the Senate, though.

Frankly, I don't think this warranted an FBI investigation, and, once it started, it didn't need to go public. But, since it's made its way into the public arena, there's no stopping an investigation.

14. Overreach

Same as Clinton.

Republicans just want an excuse to investigate anything and everything, hoping to have a reason to tie the President to some issue, to get a chance to question him and hope to find a contradiction.

House knew and kept it under wraps until after the Election. Even Richard Haas told him to cool it and let the facts play out...

17. I think you have it backwards - this is likely to be a huge Republican scandal

A rougue FBI agent (who Cantor is trying to call a "Whistle blower") feeding Cantor what they may have considered damaging info to Obama on Bengazi that they uncovered while investigating leaks from the CIA chief's boinkee. And the leak to Cantor being on October 27, there can be no doubt in my mind what the motive was.

18. When did Petraeus announce his resignation...

The day the hour and the minute. Because it was about 10 seconds after that some guy in a dirty white t-shirt was watching it and got on his computer and demanded that Obama be impeached over this issue. I doubt any elected RWers are going to do any such thing. But, if they want to roll that way let them. This will bite them in the butt.

31. They have been hitting the Benghazi thing nonstop. They tried VERY hard to make it an issue before

the election, but it didn't catch on. They seemed to be convinced that if they talked about it incessantly on *every* show -- making it seem as though Obama had somehow directly caused the attack and its aftermath -- that this would be a "game-changer."

That didn't happen of course. But Fox is very stubborn, and they are convinced that they have something really meaty here. Even though the Petraeus scandal seems totally unrelated to Benghazi, they are trying extra, extra hard to draw a connection to this (they fantastize -- apparently -- that this could really add up to something -- to what I have no idea).

22. It Won't Happen

outside of a handful of wackos with keyboard courage "demanding" it. This story actually damages the ReThugs MORE than Obama. Broadwell's connection to the GOP, Petraeus was considered to run as a GOP candidate, Cantor and Issa...and even Romney & Bain, if you want to go that far.

So far the only Dem even remotely connected via talk was Dianne Feinstein. Even that was mainly due to her position and the fact that the FBI investigation MAY NOT have reported it to the Intelligence Committee as it should have.

... the GOP already have sufficient excuse to start impeachment proceedings. Not that they need any.

26. They've been trying to impeach him as soon as he took office.

What are they going to say? That he appointed Petraeus with a position high enough that he hung himself?

Actually, if they did, I wouldn't be surprised.
