Re: Should be impeached

I don't even listen to Rush. You list a number of undesirable qualities, never said he was a nice guy. He was elected POTUS.  Cite a crime and go for it. Impeach.

Re: Should be impeached

Just curious ElCh, were any of those things unknown or unreported prior to the election?  And yet, he was elected.  It was a matter of the relative choices which were there before us.  The 2016 election was over, in 2016.  As far as the election results, that's history.  The Mueller investigation and report, that's now history.  Let's investigate crimes (actual evident crimes, the American way, innocent until proven guilty), but not "investigate" just to see if we can find something that might be a crime (guilty until proven innocent, if you look hard enough, you'll probably find something).

 

And, think about it, who created the 'Russian Collusion' narrative, and why did they do this?  If Russian's hacked the DNC, why did the DNC not immediately turn it over to the FBI?  Etc.

Re: Should be impeached

The good thing about your 2016 election is the majority of US voters did not want your dear leader.

Re: Should be impeached

The majority of voters in a majority of states did.

Re: Should be impeached

That's not how US Presidents are elected.  But you know that.  Since you pointlessly brought it up AGAIN, here's a list of US Presidents that were elected without receiving a majority (over 50%) of the popular vote, since 1824:

 

1824 John Quincy Adams 30.9% [Andrew Jackson received 41.3%, AND more electoral votes -- but since no electoral majority, Adams was then elected by the House of Representatives]

 

1844 James K. Polk 49.5%

 

1848 Zachary Taylor 47.3%

 

1856 James Buchanan 45.3%

 

1860 Abraham Lincoln 39.9%

 

1876 Rutherford B. Hayes 48.0% [Samuel J. Tilden received 51.0%]

 

1880 James A. Garfield 48.3%

 

1884 Grover Cleveland 48.5%

 

1888 Benjamin Harrison 47.8% [Grover Cleveland received 48.6%]

 

1892 Grover Cleveland 46.1%

 

1912 Woodrow Wilson 41.8%, and 1916, 49.2%

 

1948 Harry S. Truman 49.4%

 

1960 John F. Kennedy 49.7%

 

1968 Richard M. Nixon 43.4%

 

1992 Bill Clinton 43.0%, and 1996, 49.2%

 

2000 George W. Bush 47.9% [Al Gore received 48.4%]

 

2016 Donald Trump 46.0% [Hillary Clinton received 48.1%]

Re: Should be impeached, but Won't

Unless the Republicans suddenly acquire morals, there will be no impeachment. Impeachment cannot be a partisan thing, and in the inner Democratic circles, away from the ears of the press, the Democrats know there is no Republican support and impeachment would fail. They know Republicans will never hold Trump responsible for any crime unless there is a huge uproar from every US citizen, including the Trump faithful. That will not happen and there will be no partisan impeachment. The change will happen when the next election comes around. I think the Democrats do not believe Trump can be impeached and they are simply spreading well-deserved doubts about Trump to see where the waters of public opinion spread.

Re: Should be impeached

Thanks for the history lesson and it points out what I posted, more voters wanted Clinton not the one who got the prize.

Why do you all get so upset when that is pointed out?

Re: Should be impeached

We don't. That is they way our founding fathers set our system up. That way presidential candidates can't ignore the people of small states.
