    What would YOU know about "impeachable offenses"?

    Ronnie of RayGun was both senile and presided over a presidency wherein Iran-Contra took place - to be fair, his VP who was formerly head of the CIA probably headed that one behind his back - but Ronnie should have resigned when his Alzheimer's was becoming apparent.  I can't have been the only one who noticed it when he started acting like my grandfather who was going senile at the same time.

    Bush the elder should never have been elected president, and he had his own little foray into Iraq to protect his and his oil cronies' interests there.  Wrong move to use a public military paid for with our tax dollars to protect private commercial interests (which was also behind Dumbya's invasion).  Plus, I doubt anyone ever investigated the elder's role in Iran-Contra and the extent to which he may have run the country when Ronnie was going senile.

    Then there was Dumbya and Dickie, both of whom should have been impeached.  Somewhere online is likely a leftover list of lies and crimes numbering over a thousand at one point (Dennis Kucinich listed a bunch of them when he used a personal resolution the first time to impeach Dumbya and spoke over four hours).  But you all in Congress did NOTHING to impeach a lying war criminal who authorized torture (torture! - and you stood mute and applauded him and paid for his misadventures based on lies in Afghanistan and Iraq and authorized new buildings to be built at Gitmo)... isn't that right, Nancy-impeachment-is-off-the-table Pelosi and John Conyers who followed her orders...???

    Obama's sin/crime is in following the same policies and retaining the same Repuke reichwingnut advisers and heads of departments as Dumbya, so Obama's an accessory; the illegal and unconstitutional use of drones to the extent he's done is all on Obama's shoulders.  He also tries to criminalize whistleblowers when they try to help us, and that's just wrong on so many levels.  Mostly Obama's a tool of the reichwingnuts because he wants to be seen as a bipartisan compromiser and he's in love with his own PR on that image because he kowtows to every criticism Dickie or his daughter yap about, and he caves to Boner every time because he's an enabler of the reichwingnuts.  Oh, he's given us a few victories now and then (Ledbetter, gays serving openly in the military, gay marriage), just no big victories that would save us a bundle of money and stop the infernal borrowing to commit war crimes (like closing Gitmo, ending the wars and occupations in Afghanistan and Iraq, or a sensible not-for-profit single-payer medical insurance).

    So, Tommy Tinker, you miserable little racist worm, if you couldn't impeach Dumbya and Dickie for their lies and war crimes, you got NO room to start the drumbeats to impeaching Obama (even though he's doing some of the same things Dumbya and Dickie did)..., so STFU!

      "Ronnie should have resigned when his Alzheimer's was becoming apparent."
      Was the pre-election debates.

      America, we can do better than this...

        ... and ignored his befuddlement because he knew how to distract them with bad jokes when he obviously had no comprehension what a question was about even.  As a B-List [or D List, IMHO] actor he could get through a typed speech, so Moronic Media dubbed him a "communicator."

        It wasn't until Nancy whispered a simple answer to a simple question and he repeated it sometime during his second term at the ranch that was caught on microphones that most people had a clue.

        It was pathetically obvious during the Iran-Contra hearings, too, which I watched on commercial TV, beginning to end (back in those days networks still had some sort of standards and actually ran important things - sans commentary and commercials - while preempting regular programming).  When Ronnie got these befuddled and fuzzy looks on his face to some questions and said he didn't remember or didn't know, I figured out right away that Bush the elder had set it up with his CIA connections and was probably running the country behind everyone's back (no one will say now, of course, because they're the same old pals and buddies who were also in Dumbya's cabinet and department posts, and they're all corporate loyalists - the loyalist criminals can be tracked in administrations going clear back to Nixon and keep showing up in Repuke administrations).  When Ronnie of RayGun said he didn't know something, he meant it... he had either forgotten it, never comprehended it, or was never told anything by Georgie the elder.

        Or maybe I just noticed the senility earlier because of having seen senile befuddlement up close and personal and knew what it looked and sounded like, so I never excused it as something else.
