109. They can never get him removed from office with an impeachment

True, the House could initiate a trial, but the Senate would have the final say as to guilt. It would require a 2/3 vote to remove him from office, and with the Senate's current composition, they could not get it.

But they can showboat and threaten which would be terribly distracting to implementing President Obama's second term goal. That might be their real objective.

I don't think we can rely on the media to help us. The cynic in me thinks many commentators would LOVE an impeachment story because it would enrich their broadcasting material. Doesn't matter it could harm the Country, only ratings matter to them.

I think we need stronger, assertive Dems stepping out, demanding evidence for the Republicans outrageous assertions, and hitting back at them. But that is just my opinion.

Sam
