While this President has exceeded Richard Nixon's malfeasance, the Democratic party does not have the ethics to ask him to resign.

Instead, we see the liberals circle the wagons and attempt to attack President Obama's critics, even calling them racists.

Liberals would have demanded impeachment if President Obama was a Republican.

From Fast & Furious, to drone strikes on US citizens, violating the War Powers Act, using the IRS for political punishment, ordering the collection of all your phone calls and e-mails, and knowingly lying about the ACA, President Obama has governed with malice and corruption.

Correction: It isn't "this President" who's been trying to manage/control elections (like Dick Nixon attempted)...it's the anti-minority/anti-voting-rights T-Baggers who are pushing that agenda.

The reason we won't impeach his is simple. First Sham will call us all racist but most importantly why would we want Uncle Joe as the new POTUS when Obama really didn't want him as VP?

Biden: " Mr. Ex. President....this is a big f******* deal".

The letters today make a good point about the failures of Obama's Administration. Now, it is time to start giving readers the names of those who you think should be considered for office at the state and national level as well as those who deserve re-election as well as your rationale for supporting them. My fear is that elections will continue to become more about who one is against rather than who one is for.

David is right. Who do we support and why?

David - Spike:

How about Ted Cruz, who had the foresight and integrity to see this nightmare coming and propose to negotiate changing it.

It is humorous that we now hear many calls for a delay or reform of Obamacare when a few weeks ago we were told it is the law of the land, get over it.

Thanks for the reply, Erik. I look forward to hearing from others. For myself, I think Gov. Christie and Senator Rubio are possibilities. At this point, they appear to have the understanding that the demographics of the country are changing and it is better to guide that change in a general direction rather than try to make it go in a particular direction. I don't see anyone on the horizon for the Democrats other than H. Clinton. The other ability I value is the ability to control the fringes of whatever party you represent. B. Clinton and Gingrich could do that and Obama and Boehner have not been able to.

I think Sen. McConnell has done a better job than anyone on the Republican side to keep the far right from going too far. It is also worthwhile to remember that it has been VP Biden and McConnell who have been able to get things done several times when there were stalemates. As I remember, McConnell specifically asked that Biden be involved. There must be more to Biden than the buffoon image that follows him.

Cruz doesn't want to change he wants to repeal it.

If a reason for impeachment is lying then no politician is safe from impeachment.

Writer says 8 lies and doesn't say what they are. Now people who were witnesses about Benghazi were not even there but that doesn't seem to amtter to those on the right.

David, to help us understand your position please give us your definition of “far right.”

In the Senate, Ted Cruz, maybe Rand Paul would be far right. As opposed to senators like Lindsay(sp?) Graham. In the House, folks who are fans of Michelle Bachman and Ron Paul. What the far right has in common with the far left is the unwillingness to work with the other side, or allow others in their respective parties to work with the other side(Reid-sp?) and Pelosi are prime Democratic examples). That to me is more important than a position a person may have on one or more specific issues.

David, in other words anyone that’s not a RINO is an extreme Republican?

David:

Ted Cruz is not an extremist.

He is a Constitutionalist.

He merely wants the federal gov't to get back to its constitutional limits.

He knows that cannot be done overnight or our entire nation would go into turmoil.

He acknowledges that there is nothing stopping states from doing the same programs currently administered by the federal gov't.

If California, Massachusetts and New York want single-payer healthcare, let them do it.

But if Alabama, Texas and Alaska want to do tort reform, they should be allowed.

The original idea by our founders was 50 states trying different ideas and competing with each other for success.

Progressives have moved things so far to the left, Moderates perceive anyone wanting to place controls on government growth and spending is an extremist.

First, the word RHINO is by definition derogatory. Why would I agree to a definition that is derogatory to describe an attribute I consider an asset? Second, what constitutes a Republican or a constitutionalist are not settled issues even in the Republican party. That's why I described actions rather than focus on positions on particular issues. You are extreme in my view if you don't engage with the other party and if you actively work to prevent others in your party from working with the other party or parties.
