    A battle over right or wrong

    How long has Sarah Palin been a member of the DNC? I must have missed that press release.

    What a scam. The house impeaches, the senate convicts. Does anyone really believe the Democrat controlled Senate would convict. Look what happened with Clinton. Does anyone even remember Clinton was impeached. I am a Republican and I am embarrassed at the direction the tea party is taking us. The left wanted to impeach Bush and it went nowhere. Every president has made recess appointments, used executive powers and selectively enforced laws. The right is blinded by their hate for Obama. I wish the party would return to the values of Reagan. Speak no ill of fellow Republicans and bi-partisanship. By the way what was Bush's approval rating when he left office.

    Republicans keep pointing to BO's approval ratings (about 40%)but fail to mention they're still much higher than theirs. Hypocrisy, hate, bigotry, stonewalling, and exclusivity won't win many hearts or minds.

    @OneWifeOnly, there is a big difference between law enforcement not being able to catch everyone who does the littlest thing wrong and the president directing the Department of Justice to "selectively" enforce certain laws, or use some other excuse to ignore a law he doesn't agree with.

    "Democrats have million-dollar day on impeachment"

    Where do Republicans find the geniuses they elect into office?

    What else do Democrats have to run on with the exception of made up stories. The President or the Senate certainly can't run on their record.
    In addition, with the world in a state of turmoil and the President incapable of saying or doing anything that makes any sense, I guess one would expect him to try and deflect the criticism rather than to actually do something. I guess he could blame his inaction on Bush.

    Everyone who exceeded the speed limit on his/her way to work and did not get a ticket experienced the problem our government has with trying to enforce ALL laws.
    The fact that congress has decided to sue the president for failing to enforce U.S. law is laughable. To open impeachment proceedings is something every late night talk show host is praying for.
    If the Republicans want to get my attention, my vote or my money they need to start doing something besides fund raise and Obama-hate.

    I notice also, the article said Democrats received 74,000 first-time doners and the average donation is just $19. Every time a voter makes a political contribution they are voting with their pocketbooks and that will translate to voting at the booth in November. This is what the Republicans need to be afraid of.

    Now would someone publish the stats on Republican donations/doners? My guess is (a) hard to do because of the secrecy behind 501(c)3 and (b) average donation will be significantly higher than $19. There are plenty of reputable websites that publish campaign donations/spending and it looks like Republicans are outraising Democrats by about 100 million dollars so far in 2014.

    dem donors sure are easy to manipulate, the DNC is definitely taking advantage of them. hopefully they drain them a bit before the congressional elections this fall

    The talk about impeachment is coming only from Democrats (per John Boehner). Really? Didn't know Sarah Palin, et. al were Democrats. While mainstream Republicans grimace at the kooky right wing's kooky ideas, it's hard to deny what is right there in print.
