Maybe because it was a holiday weekend, I've received only one poll asking if I think President Obama should be impeached, and it didn't specify if wearing a tan suit is grounds for impeachment (as the blue dress had been for President Clinton).

The impeachment of Iranian Minister of Science Reza Faraji Dana by the conservative-dominated Iranian Parliament on August 20 has been a key event for both sides -- a slip in the political tectonics that could yield seismic waves throughout the country's political landscape.

The Kennedy assassination opened a nation's eyes, Viet Nam gave us something to see, and, well, the crimes of Nixon pretty much sealed it. You might call it a reality check.

Forty years ago today, President Nixon addressed the nation to announce he would be resigning the next day -- the only time in US history this has happened. Today, President Obama announced the US will be dropping bombs on Iraq once again. That's a pretty heavy-duty amount of the past to contemplate, in one week.

Senior House Republicans' Threat to Barack Obama

Kevin Price | Posted 08.05.2014 | Politics

House Republicans have sworn to defend the Constitution. They believe the president is violating his oath to the point of impeachable offenses. Based on their very own logic, the House GOP members are also violating the Constitution.

Declaring War on Cultural War

Robert Hall

The upcoming 2014 congressional elections and the 2016 Presidential/congressional elections are a time of opportunity. The majority in this country are tired of cultural warfare. The vocal minority may be ruling but they have failed at governing. Sometimes war is necessary but it is always destructive and never sustainable.

My guess is that by the time everyone votes in November, the Republican anti-Obamacare strategy is hardly going to cause a ripple, while the debate over immigration reform is going to be the main event.

Obama Is 100 Percent Right to Throw Red Meat of Lawsuit and Impeachment Talk Back at Republicans

Are House Republicans likely to actually vote to impeach Obama? No. But you know what? I don't care. Boehner is the one who started this game, the one who has sought time and again to present himself as standing up to the president. It's sweet justice to see Boehner's shenanigans redounding to the benefit of Obama.

If I get one more email asking me for money to stop the Republicans from impeaching Obama, I may have to change my email address. And if I were a Republican, I'd probably feel the same way about an endless stream of emails asking for money to stop Obama from exercising dictatorial powers, to sue him, or possibly impeach him.

It's not really the number or rate of executive orders, however, that Obama has issued that has raised the hackles of the GOP. It's the executive orders that he has issued that have given the GOP ammunition to attempt to intimidate and politically bash Obama.
