I am sure that will be a slogan you will hear a lot the moment he is elected. And if Hillary is elected, it will be "Impeach Hillary" instead.

Save the Republicans will control the House, Nyarl, and there is no impeachment without them. Period.

That being written, they never impeached or even attempted to impeach Obama. Not saying he should have been; it is just that sometimes the embarrassing gaggle of lobotomized geese that are Our Elected Representatives occasionally remember that they are adults and act accordingly.

When Obama was elected Dems controlled both houses and I started hearing calls to impeach him from day one.

I didn't say those calls would be feasible, just that they will exist.

You will get that stupidity from The Great Unwashed of both sides certainly, and random asshats in Congress from both sides against an opposing President. I did a quick Google-Fu to see if any congressmen was serious as in writing and submitting an actual article of impeachment for consideration. According to the bastion of objective rational critical thinking Wikipedia: No. I interpret random asshat proclamations as just so much wind to wind up supporters, particularly those with money. There never was a serious attempt.

Though I like this one:
In May 2016, the Oklahoma Legislature filed a measure asking the representatives from Oklahoma in the House of Representatives to impeach Obama, the U.S. attorney general, the U.S. secretary of education and any other administration officials involved in the decision to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms corresponding to their gender identity. The same resolution also "condemns the actions of the Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice and the Office for Civil Rights of the United States Department of Education ... as contrary to the values of the citizens of Oklahoma".
So much FAIL there.

Is that kind of like the old joke that Dan Quayle was Bush The Elder's protection against assassination attempts? How any would be assassin, no matter how crazy, would stop and think "Oh shit. If I take him out Quayle becomes president."?

Depends on the VP choice, but not necessarily after the manner of the old Dan Quayle jokes.

Bear in mind that the Republicans might not control the House all 4 (or 8 ) years.

It could be the religious right crazies would much rather have Pence than Trump and unite in a tactical alliance with the impeach Trump no matter what folks on the other side of the aisle.

Long overdue to dust off this thread.

I'm getting the impression a lot of Democrats expected Trump to be gone by now.

Too much to ask this government to forego the drama for a couple of days and do some work for the country.

Hmm yes I forgot what Jefferson said: "He governs best who governs least." I take it back. Better they waste time investigating each other than screwing us over.

I'm not sure the absolute odds, but I think a resignation (in frustration rather than shame) is more likely than an impeachment. Kind of a "fuck this, I'm out. Have fun Pence" moment.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

In that case, I think he would just serve out his one term and enjoy the last year telling everyone how much the candidates from both sides suck.

That speech was when he lost his run for governor of California in 1962.

So Tricky Dick was lying as usual. We had him to kick around another 11 years. :BigGrin3:
