GOP Congressman Throws Temper Tantrum Because Republicans Can’t Impeach President Obama

Paul Gosar campaign adSince before Barack Obama ever stepped foot into the White House, Republicans have been trying to find ways to either prevent him from becoming president or remove him from the office he was overwhelmingly voted into by the American people twice


From the ridiculous birthers who proclaimed that he wasn’t an American citizen, to those who believe his executive order on immigration is tantamount to treason, there has been no shortage of right-wing idiocy with conservatives crying about how Barack Obama should not be president.

Well, it seems the fact that the GOP has been unable to remove President Obama from the White House has caused Rep. Paul Gosar to snap. The Republican from Arizona basically threw the equivalent of a temper tantrum when during a speech he suggested that Republicans should flat-out refuse to confirm anyone appointed by this president since they can’t impeach him.

“You may not be able to impeach a president,” Gosar said. “But boy I tell you what: remember, we have the right of advise and confer. Nobody gets confirmed. Nada. Nobody. None. I don’t care how good of a person you are. You’re not gonna get it.”

In other words, he’s extremely upset because there’s no logical or legal grounds for his party to remove President Obama – a man elected to office by the American people via guidelines our Constitution lays out – from power. These are literally some of the most immature and childish comments I’ve ever seen uttered by someone from the Republican party.

When you get right down to it, Rep. Gosar’s opinion that Republicans should refuse to confirm anyone appointed by this president isn’t based upon what’s best for the country or even the qualifications of the nominated person to do the job for which they need congressional confirmation, it’s entirely based on Gosar being upset that he’s not getting his way.

Rep. Gosar outright admitted, without shame, that it doesn’t matter how qualified the person might be for the position for which they’re seeking confirmation – it’s only about his desire to see his party play petty partisan politics because they’ve been unable to find any Constitutional or legal grounds to impeach this president.

Oh, and for the record, the House of Representatives doesn’t have anything to do with confirming presidential nominees. That’s a job that’s done entirely in the Senate.


So, while Gosar essentially has no say on whether or not the Senate will continue to confirm Obama nominees (to his credit Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said they would), his comments do showcase a tone among the GOP that I’ve heard for years. Republicans don’t really care about governing, what’s best for this country or anything else – all they really care about is opposing practically anything and everything President Obama supports.

At the end of the day, they really do hate this president more than they love our country – if some of them even love it at all.

    There are legal grounds for removing Obama but that isn’t going to happen. Almost all Democrats will support him because he is their guy and meal ticket right or wrong. I don’t know of any who won’t. A sizable percentage of Republicans have also supported his violations of his presidential oath because they too supported, for instance, his executive war on Libya and his executive amnesty legislation. Without a two thirds vote, he stays. The status quo will stand. He has been good to the 1%. Besides, at this point in his reign, it would take too much time to even consider his removal. Then what would we get anyway but Biden. Hillary or Jeb’s policies won’t be much different.

      you want to lay them out smart boy – you can’t . you know why ?? because you are full of shit.

        “President Obama moved forward (with helping bomb Libya and overthrow its legitimate government) without Congress approving,” “He didn’t have congressional authorization, he has gone against the Constitution, and that’s got to be said.” Several other members of Congress have also chastised the Obama administration for not doing enough to sell the intervention to Congress, let alone to the American people.” -former liberal Congressman Dennis Kucinich

        There was also the issue of Obama failing to observe the 60 day requirement of the War Powers Act with regards to his personal war on Libya. You should vote for Hillary if you approved of his action. She was fully supportive of Obama’s war on Libya.

        Robert, Your preoccupation with excrement might be preventing you from following the news.

        The party of whiners about impeachment and then your spineless leaders have the nerve to accuse Democrats of being the only ones talking about impeachment.

        Won’t broaden your party platform to be more inclusive to minorities so you suppress the vote. Hate the Clintons so you do nothing since the 90’s but manufacture a bunch of phony scandals about them.

        The level of contempt I feel towards your entire party of cowards is infinite.

      • James Von Borcke

        “Won’t broaden your party platform to be more inclusive to minorities so you suppress the vote.”
        They ~can’t~ broaden their platform without losing their base voters, and they’ll lose nationally ~and~ locally if that happens regardless of suppression and gerrymandering.

      • strayaway

        I’m not defending Republicans. I was simply answering Robert with one example of a liberal Democrat with better credential than Robert, I suspect, pointing out one thing that Obama did that was legally impeachable.

        Any Democrat or Republican, for that matter, who lets Obama get away with violating the Constitution is akin to those in the Reichstag who voted for the Enabling Act of 1933. That is how I see most Democrats.

      • 3catmama

        Typical raghead response! The contempt I feel for oasshole and those that support him is beyond infinite! You are all so stupid that you can’t see the forest for the trees!

      • Peter S Valenti III

        Its funny how Libya matters but Iraq doesn’t. You are either a pathetic troll or too stupid to realize how you are being led around by people whose interests are completely against the best interests of the 300+ million people who are not very rich. Either way your a sad pathetic person.

      • strayaway

        Iraq matters too for many of the same reasons. Thank you for bringing up Iraq. Iraq is one reason why you shouldn’t vote Hillary. As a Senator, she voted to give away her congressional power to decide to go to war to Bush. She was a cheerleader for going in to Iraq. Without supporters like her, Bush would not have had the power to get into that war.

        Obama didn’t even bother asking Congress if he could help bomb Libya. Hillary, as SOS, supported encouraged Obama’s action. Partial solution: vote for Sanders in the primary.

        Incidentally, we still have troops in Iraq after Obama has been president of over six years and Hillary/Obama’s idiotic policies helped jump start IS with weapons donated to “sympathetic” rebel groups. US weapons and training continue to be given to local “sympathetic” rebel groups to help overthrow Assad our best ally against IS. As Commander in Chief, Hillary/Obama’s policies make Col. Custer seem like a military genius.

      • Peter S Valenti III

        Voting Sanders is the right answer.

      • jscollis

        …you did say “former”…he was “hated” by all you “repubs”…don’t go “claiming” him now as if he were some great conservative…..

      • strayaway

        I have, however, upon requests, laid out possible grounds for impeachments as stated by a former Democratic congressman and our president. Your conclusion that rank either Kucinich or Obama as “some great conservative” is also nutty. I simply used their voices to explain my point. If you knew Obama used to support the Constitution, then why did you presumably vote for him”. I didn’t say that stuff. They did.

        You do touch upon a good point though. Why is it that Democrats who run against wars, and the expanding corporatist police state have to leave or get drummed out of the Democratic party like Nader and Kucinich? Sanders doesn’t run as a Democratic senator. Alan Grayson lost an election (now back in) because the party didn’t fund him. Marci Kaptur cooled her heels and changed her policies when she was put in a run off against Kucinich.

      • jscollis

        …WRONG…on a number of points….one being….”gerrymandering”…..how is it Obama carried Ohio by over 6%….YET…but our rep’s are 12 repubs/3 democrat…they (repub) drew up the “districts” to put Kucinich at a numerical disadvantage….straight fact…so Kucinich did not get “drummed” out or “have to leave”….respond to the point please…..

      • strayaway

        I find it difficult to be WRONG about gerrymandering since I didn’t mention it. Please get your facts straight. Ohio lost one seat. Marcy Kaptur (Toledo) and Dennis Kucinich (Cleveland) were put in a race against each other. They were both Democrats. I find it fascinating because Kaptur and Kucinich were two of the four most anti Federal Reserve Democrats in Congress. The other two were Alan Grayson and Bernie Sanders. What a coincidence that of all the Democrats these two were pitted against each other. One, Kucinich, was gone to the relief of Obama and Wall Street. Notice that republicans didn’t gerrymander both their districts so they would lose to two Republicans. Kaptur has since changed hers ways having learned her lesson and has since gone silent on the Federal Reserve. Did you notice how no one in the Democratic party came forward to help Kucinich. Instead, they made him into an example of what happens when you buck the Democratic Party establishment. The same thing goes on in the Republican Party with people like Ron paul and Justin Amash. Paul twice had his district gerrymandered in ways meant to shed him. Karl Rove spent a million dollars unsuccessfully trying to unseat Amash in the primary.

      • Flat Banana

        @strayaway:disqus I read your comments and I must say you completely shut them up, while they had to bring up things you didn’t even say. They have absolutely no basis to run on other than typing in all CAPS and calling people names.

      • jscollis

        …once again….FACT….the “campaign” in Libya…was an effort put forth by the U.N….of which America assisted…it wasn’t America’s war…respond to the point please…

      • strayaway

        You are wrong on so many levels. The UN cannot tell the US what to do. Only Congress can declare war although the War Powers Act was written to allow presidents to act in emergencies when the US was being attacked. Libya had not attacked us so that puts having wars in the hands of Congress. Congress did not authorize Obama to attack Libya. The UN only said it would be ok, according to that body, to conduct a no fly zone and similar measures. the UN NEVER authorized any counties to bomb Libya’s capital and overthrow its sovereign government. Even if it had, Congress, not the executive branch, is delegated with the power to declare wars. presidents are not supposed to be dictators bombing nations at will. Most UN countries refrained from doing anything to Libya even though the UN said it would be ok to carry out some limited measures. I never said it was America’s war. I said it was Obama’s war in which he helped bomb Libya. Kucinich, and others, said his executive branch war on Libya and his violations of the War Powers Act were impeachable offenses.

        I could go on about what a clusterfuck foreign policy the overthrow of Khaddafi was if you wish.

        …O.K……ROBERT….YOU TELL ME SOMETHING….HOW IS IT THIS PRESIDENT HAS FACED AN “IRRATIC, INSANE, DESTRUCTIVE” REPUBLICAN PARTY FOR BETTER THAN SIX YEARS……………AND THEY HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO “ISSUE”…………ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT AGAINST HIM……….OH…OH….WAIT…..”strayaway” seems to have that knowledge…..he wants to “help” his fellow repub’s so much….WHY…doesn’t he contact them and tell them….HOW TO DO IT……HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH…

      • Flat Banana

        Why would the repubs want to impeach Obama, then Biden would be the ranking official and that’s just as bad.

    • Beth Conrad

      Yes I’d also like to hear the specific charges.

      • David Combs

        There is none or they would have jumped on it like a starving dog.

      • strayaway

        I mentioned two above. This time, instead of having Dennis Kucinich explain reasons Obama should be impeached, I’ll quote the president in his own words.

        “We’ve got a government designed by the Founders so that there’d be checks and balances. You don’t want a president who’s too powerful or a Congress that’s too powerful or a court that’s too powerful. Everybody’s got their own role. Congress’s job is to pass legislation. The president can veto it or he can sign it. … I believe in the Constitution and I will obey the Constitution of the United States. We’re not going to use signing statements as a way of doing an end-run around Congress.” – law maker Obama (5/19/08)

        Presidential Oath: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

        “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States” Article 1, US Constitution

        Obama after issuing his executive order giving 4-5M illegal aliens work permits among other things: ‘I just took an action to CHANGE the law’

        In his own words, Obama described his action as violating his oath of office. What can I add to that? Anyone, including Republican who condone Obama changing, ignoring, and making laws and war is guilty of supporting a de facto enabling act allowing Obama and future presidents to legislate.

      • wendy

        Assuming we had an actual congress that worked. So our pres. wants to get shit done. Congress wants to receive paychecks for doing nothing but going against anything coming out of the mouth of the Pres.
        If Obama had to wait on congress to do their job, he’d be accused of being the ‘do nothing’ pres.
        He’s damned when he does anything and nothing.
        Someone has to work, no?

      • strayaway

        Congress may only address things it is delegated to do according to the 10th Amendment. Unfortunately, too many Republicans ignore that as much as Democrats. I agree with your choice of words describing what the president is trying to get done. Congress, including more Democrats than Republicans, did stop Obama from bombing Syria. You might consider bombing Syria getting something done but I’m glad we had a do nothing Congress in that case so we didn’t wind up with another Libya.

    • Nicholas A Kocal

      Stay you stupid dumb-fuck racist but being black is NOT an impeachable offense.

      • Mike Hitchcock

        Having an IQ higher than the whole GOP combined apparently is…

      • strayaway

        Your eloquence and intellectual articulateness make you a natural spokesperson for Democrats. One posting tip though: to be a better spokesperson for all points Democratic, you have to combine “Koch brothers’, ‘It’s Bush’s fault’, and “all about race’ in one sentence.

      • 3catmama

        Being black has nothing to do with his communist agenda! I’m not a racist by a long shot. I judge people on character and not color! He has the character of a slithering snake. Get over the race card….that is not what it’s about. This SOB or I should say son of a communist whore, doesn’t even have a legal social security card…..he stole it from a dead man, at least one of them since he has more than 1. I just don’t get how you can support a usurper that isn’t even an American!

      • Nicholas A Kocal

        For not being a racist you sure do a good job of repeating every racist lie out there about President Obama. SO I apologize, you are not a racist, you are an ignorant, unable to think for yourself, blinded by hatred, uneducated racist.

      • strayaway

        You are right but, on the other end of the spectrum, there are Karl Rove supported Republicans who only care about their team too. As Karmasue points out below, many of these people don’t want to be confronted with facts that threaten their belief system.

    • jscollis

      …We all saw that “act” with Bill and company….WHY…wasn’t Cheney or Bush ever impeached…..remember W.M.D.’s……..war criminals…..

      • strayaway

        I don’t know why they weren’t impeached either. I’m kind enough though that I’d approve Bush and Obama being cellmates if they so chose.

  • wendy

    I guess we will find out if racisism is the cause for such disdain and obstruction towards a U.S. Pres., if a democrat gets into the whitehouse. We will see how GOP behaves. Then again, it may be a woman.

      If the Dem’s successfully put a completely untrustworthy person like Hillary in the White House and, because of that untrustworthiness she cannot form a successful working relationship with Pubs in Congress, who will rightfully be to blame for the dysfunction that results?

      • Peter Wimsey

        The”untrustworthiness” of Hillary exists only in minds of tea-baggers and other ignorant and culturally-isolated oldsters.

        The tea-bag brigade has done nothing for the past six years except to deny a duly-elected President an opportunity to perform Executive responsibilities.

      • watchpocket

        Some of us “culturally-isolated oldsters” have looked into Hitlery’s political/professional background and do not like what we see. Her relationship with BIG money is disgusting. I do not trust her but then who needs to with Sen. Sanders in the fray.

      • jscollis

      • sherry06053

        That is the future – what excuse do you give NOW and in the past 6 years? Blatant bigotry and ignorance and lies. You are already blaming Hillary for dysfunction, predicting the inevitable due to the GOP.

      • strayaway

        “what excuse do you give NOW and in the past 6 years?”

        Answer: failed policies

      • Ducky

        I don’t recall trickle down economics or the Iraq war stopping any nominations……

      • strayaway

        Nominations? Could you be a little more explicit so I know what your are referring to? Trickle down, also not mentioned on this thread by anyone, doesn’t work. I was surprised when Obama made half of Bush’s tax cuts for the rich permanent. Consequently, in twenty years, Obama will have given more tax cuts to the rich than Bush. That’s odd behavior for someone who criticizes trickle down economics.

      • wendy

        Was referring to racism or discrimination. A really good determination if this has been the problem would truly be if Bernie Sanders became Pres. We will see if an older white guy gets the same disrespect and obstruction.
        Yet I believe, this is our new way; not only is the climate changing; politics has turned into a circus playing with the fate of the future of the U.S.
        The damage has been done and will prob. grow like a cancer instead of healing.
        Cynical maybe, but it truly seems that way to me

        I think you’re correct. We’ve become ‘democratic’ in the vein of Hugo Chavez and Putin.

      • Jillz

        Congress, if they continue to act the way they have under President Obama. If she is voted in, Congress has a responsibility to the people who voted her in. To do anything other than work with the elected President is to continue obstructing and hurting the USA and proving they don’t really care about what the majority of Americans want.

      • Jim Bean

        Obama did not work with the Republicans elected to Congress nor did Harry. Why is the value system modified to accommodate Dems?

      • Jillz

        Republicans have made it their mission to obstruct President Obama since before he was even sworn in. The President has shown much more patience and grace with them than they deserve. Don’t try to turn this around. Everyone knows who the obstructionists in Washington are.

      • wendy

        They have the obligation to work with the POTUS because we voted for him to be pres. Why should he have to bow down to the GOP who holds us hostage till they get their way. Voters are fed up

      • Jim Bean

        The Republicans were voted into Congress to do the bidding of the people in their districts. Thye don’t owe the POTUS diddly-squat and have no obligation whatsoever to work with him unless he’s being as reasonable and compromising with regard to what people in those GOP districts want .

      • Dan Hetland

        It is getting
        really old, this thing of those on the Hill dictating exactly whom they are
        willing to “play” with, and those they aren’t. They are elected to do
        a job, totally independent of whoever is elected to whatever other elected
        positions in government. In fact, they take an Oath affirming to that very
        thing. Both of the Legislative branches should enact legislation covering the
        opposite branch stating that those members who fail to live up to their sworn
        oath, will automatically be found guilty of dereliction of duty and subject to
        a recall or impeachment vote, depending on the severity of the situation. If it
        happens more than once, the member is subject to immediate impeachment. These
        are tough times and they call for tough measures. These elected Officials need
        to be held accountable for the waste of public funds that are wasted because of
        lack of participation by uninterested members of the Congress or Senate. AND,
        on another point, Members should be barred from voting instead of another
        member who is absent from the vote, in other words proxy votes should not be
        allowed.

      I hope the Democrat candidate focuses really strongly on all the taxpayers’ money the Republicans have wasted in the past few years. It’s sickening that they run on being the party of fiscal responsibility. pffft.

      • kid721952

        We could probably have paid that back with obamas vacation money,the money spent on the obamacare program,the money he has spent to cover up his birth certificate,the 50 million he will give to iran for making a nuke deal,the money he spent trying to unseat netanyahu,the money he spent in egypt to get the muslim brotherhood in power,the shutdown involved both parties,neither would budge,it only took one party to give in,both parties were at fault,the money obama is giving to “ILLEGALS” that come from the tax payer is in the billions thanks to obama not closing our southern border and telling border patrol to stand down

      • Aaron Johnson

        Oh yeah, the vacations that pale in comparison to what W had. Obama didn’t cover up his birth certificate. You are so far gone that you could easily excuse Cruz’s citizenship while he has less of a reason than Obama had to prove his. You don’t even know what Obamacare is all about.

      • Jillz

        Wow. You sound like an ad for FOX News. Most of what you posted is just opinion, a FOX talking point, or right-wing propaganda. I noticed, however, that you didn’t deny that Republicans WASTED billions of your tax dollars on a ridiculous government shutdown and millions in unnecessary inquiries and pointless lawsuits.

        “We could probably have paid that back with obamas vacation money”

        Has it not occurred to you that you wouldn’t need to worry about “paying it back” if they (GOTP) hadn’t wasted it in the first place?

        “the shutdown involved both parties,”

        No, the shutdown was ridiculous, and it was at the hands of the GOTP who were playing dirty as usual.

        You have access to it you just choose not to believe the truth. Obama is giving the Chinese our Federal land as collateral for our supposed debt He is giving away our land. But It takes a special kind of stupid not to see what’s right in front of you. Take the blinders off and do some research. If you engaged in critical thinking and looked at the evidence without bias, I know how hard that is for progressives, just try having your own thinking instead of regurgitating rhetoric. Progressives don’t deal in facts instead they pull the race card when they don’t agree with something. I see Democrats vile and nasty because they are opposed. Republicans at least keep their dignity for the most part. I would call Gosar’s outburst righteous indignation.

      • Frank Pena

        I would call it a tantrum, much like yours.

      • Kelly Payne

        KID YOU HAVE NOW GONE IN TO IDIOT L;AND HE NEVER COVERED UP HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE. HE IS NOT GIVING 50 MILLION TO IRAN. IF THE DEAL GOES THRU IRAN MIGHT GET THEIR MONEY THAT HAS BEEN FROZEN IN THE US FOR NEARLY 40 YEARS. HE NEVER SPENT ANY MONEY TO UNSEAT NETANYHU HE NEVER SPENT ANY MONEY TO GET THE MUSLIM BROTHER HOOD IN POWER. HE HAS NOT GIVEN ANY MONEY TO ILLEGALS EITHER. WERE YOU SOBER WHEN YOU POSTED THAT CRAP?

      • lj

        Research it. millions spent sealing his records it’s a fact. Obama is giving the Chinese our Federal land as collateral for our supposed debt He is giving away our land. But It takes a special kind of stupid not to see what’s right in front of you. Take the blinders off and do some research. If you engaged in critical thinking and looked at the evidence without bias, I know how hard that is for progressives, just try having your own thinking instead of regurgitating rhetoric.

      • Bob

        She is a prime case of only reading about the free stuff. A pure case of deniability. At least he is only drunk you are high

      • Robert peoples

        Iam new to facebook, this is one of those asshats I have hear so much, thanks for illogical rambling rant only the truly mentality unhinged can come up with!!!

      • kid721952

        You talk about wasted money how Obama czars we pay six figure salaries,solar companies Obama gave taxpayer money gone bankrupt and the CEOS down got raises,how about IRS parties and trips,Obama transporting illegals from foreign countries to the US on taxpayer money,the 50 million given to Iran if the sign a nuclear deal,you need to read coburns book,the debt bomb and see what government waste really is

      • noah vail

        and you need to get a grip on reality

      • kid721952

        noah,this is REALITY,these are FACTS,something democrats know NOTHING ABOUT,harry reid held back 357 bills passed bipartisanly by the house that would have created jobs for Americans,these bills were left on reids desk because if he had held a vote and democrats would have voted with harry and the president “NO” they would have been voted out of office and harry and obama would have lost their power,the democratic party won and the American people lost,reid ran interference for obama not having to veto jobs bills the whole time he was in office

      • Kelly Payne

        KID721952…NONE OF THOSE BILLS CREATED JOBS THERE WERE 7 ACTUAL JOB BILLS WHICH WERE BLOCKED OR NOT EVEN BROUGHT TO A VOTE BY REPUBLICANS. THOSE 357 BILLS WERE NOT JOBS BILLS AND WOULD NOT HAVE CREATED A SINGLE JOB.

      • kid721952

        and this information came from?????obamas media,harry reid,the democratic party,ALL LIARS,wouldn’t believe a word that comes out of their mouths,they’ve been caught in to many lies already,nobody believes in the government except brain washed liberals that would back hitler if he was alive

      • kid721952

        We will never know will we,reid made sure they NEVER came to the floor

      • liberals suck

        EXPLAIN OH SO BRIGHT ONE WHY THEY DIDNT MAKE IT TO THE FLOOR

      • kid721952

        you want reality,ISIS is here and where did they get into our country,oddly enough,the southern border,the border obama DOES NOT WANT TO CLOSE,there is over 30 terrorist camps HERE in the U.S.,they are training to kill Americans,why are they still open during obamas watch,I guess it will take some beheadings ON YOUR BLOCK for you to understand whats going on,maybe armored vehicles and tanks patroling your neighborhood or waiting to go thru the drive thru,THATS REALITY and i’ve got a good grasp on it but unlike you,I’ll be ready for it to protect my family,WILL YOU BE READY FOR YOUR FAMILY

      • Kelly Payne

        THEY ARE NOT HERE.THERE ARE SYMPATHIZERS HERE.AGAIN YOU HAVE NO GRIP ON REALITY.

      • liberals suck

        um..for your information the state dept has said publicly that isis is here..some top official stated this in an interview SO GET A GRIP YOU ASSES..EVERYTHING KID HAS POSTED IS RIGHT ON TARGET BUT YOU PEOPLE ARE TO FUCKING STUPID TO SEE IT

      • Kelly Payne

        KID721952 YOU DON’T HAVE A STRONG GRIP ON REALITY DO YOU? WHAT YOU HAVE JUST POSTING IS PURE BULL CRAP.

    • kid721952

      I guess the government withholding witnesses and stonewalling documents,destroying emails(lois lerner,IRS and hillary’s dozen or so scandals) wouldn’t have a thing to do with these stalled investigations,WHAT HAVE THEY GOT TO HIDE FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

      • Aaron Johnson

        Investigations? Nothing stopping the lawsuit by Boehner. How many times does it take to find nothing? We should call it taxpayer paid campaign funds for the right wing. That’s all it will be. I guess in a couple years from now you will still be huffing and puffing about President Hillary Clinton. Good luck with that. No right wing extremist will ever win. Mitt couldn’t even win and he is moderate.

      • kid721952

        That whore is a blood suckling maggot who sells out our country for money

      • Kelly Payne

        KID721952 YOU ARE POSTING BULLCRAP AND BEING AN ASS.

      • kid721952

        Prove me wrong,she agreed to sell OUR URANIUM to canadians which in turn sold to russia who will give it to iran for a nuclear weapon to destroy israel and then the U.S.,then her foundation accepted millions from these companies,I wonder why they all of a sudden gave the clinton foundation millions maybe for her signature on that sale or maybe for future favors

      • liberals suck

        actually hes doing quite well

      • Bob

        She is looking forward to the free education and free money like the rest of the blood suckers. Who has no know ledge of what they want other than free stuff

      • Kelly Payne

        THOSE SO CALLED SCANDALS HAVE ALREADY BEEN DEBUNKED. TRY AGAIN.

      • kid721952

        NONE OF THEM HAVE BEEN DEBUNKED,they’ve been stonewalled,witnesses not allowed to be interviewed,emails destroyed illegally,donors donations hidden from IRS,4 American patriots murdered on her watch but “What difference does it make at this point” right,screw those American patriots

      • Abe Lillard

        Pay attention. It was the REPUBLICAN house committee that decided Benghazi amounted to nothing. You got nothing pal.

      • kid721952

        you pay attention pal,hillary’s statement of “what difference does it matter at this point” tells me there’s alot more,the hiding of witnesses,the destroying of emails,the stand down order,and 4 PATRIOTIC AMERICANS DEAD on her watch,pal,and its a REPUBLICAN trey gowdy who’s going to find out what really happened and not that weak lie of a video,she’s a damm liar,you are obviously NOT A PATRIOT or you would want the truth also

      • kid721952

        I wonder why they are still investigating abe,maybe because they found some new evidence and what about those special forces soldiers who were eye witnesses and were given the stand down order,even obamas threats didn’t keep them from testifying and there will be more come forward,witnesses that were on the ground and not attending a fund raiser while our American ambassador was being torchered and killed along with three other dedicated Americans

      • liberals suck

        wrong..they were never investigated…try again yoyo

    • kid721952

      I wonder with holder as attorney general,empty promises,if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor,Obamacare will save u 2500 a year,there not a smidgen of corruption but I plead the fifth

  • Republicans are pissed because they are being outsmarted by a black president…This is so funny……Little kids having temper tantrems in comparison…..

    • 3catmama

      He’s just as much white as black! I could care less about his color, but I have a real problem with his character…..he has none!

      • Mrs_Spengler

        And what does that mean? Be specific.

      • MrsWindy01

        People like her don’t need to be specific to spew their hatred. They just overflow with venomous rhetoric and it pours out of them like rainwater. Our current President has more character than the entire Republican body of Congress put together. She has nothing in which to “compare” it to, so she is clueless on what it even is!

      • kid721952

        yea,a dictator is definetely someone to look up to,good luck with his character,he could care less about you EXCEPT your vote

      • Kelly Payne

        KID IF HE WERE A DICTATOR YOU WOULD ALREADY BE DEAD ALONG WITH THE IDIOTS WHO YOU GET YOUR BULL CRAP FROM.

      • Abe Lillard

        You got nothing, nada, except a lot of hot air.

      • kid721952

        yea,its easy when you have millions of someone elses money to cover it up and yet things are still coming out and its not good for your party,you haven’t proven me wrong on anything I have posted,its easy to commit the crime but hard to get away with it,just like this jade helm,obama says its just a military exercise but people are opening their eyes knowing he has lied to them since in office,its MARTIAL LAW and don’t believe for a minute you will be singled out because you are a democrat

      • Abe Lillard

        So you have a problem with the class and restraint he has demonstrated when being attacked by idiots like you? Or you have a problem by the way he has persevered in doing his job while under assault by the republican party? Or you have a problem with the way he has helped millions obtain affordable healthcare? Or you have a problem with the way he has tried to integrate the USA into the world community? Let’s hear what you think about his character since you brought up the word “character”.

      • jscollis

        ….thanks Abe….I think maybe “useless” to those who
        “refuse” to hear…..their anger and hatred has made them “blind and deaf”…..

      • Philippe Lambert

        I have no problem with his class and restraint, both are remarkable and need to lauded however, I voted for him twice hoping to see more action and less words.

      • noah vail

        I’m afraid character is a word that has disappeared from the repukelican lexicon…remember. these are the same people who are trying to get us to believe they are christians…blasphemy anyone?

      • kid721952

        Abe,what about the 30 million who still have no insurance,can’t afford it,will be fined which they can’t pay and will be looking at jail time,for some it worked,for the majority IT DOES NOT WORK,where do we fit in with the world community,obama hates our allies(Israel) russia is our enemy now obama has made friends with iran,supported the muslim brotherhood in egypt until overthrown,has done absolutely NOTHING about millions of christians slaughtered all over the world would rather play golf,has let muslims and hispanics over run our country forcing tax paying Americans responsible for their living expenses,healthcare,education,not to mention muslim terrorists being brought in as “refugees” by obama and placing them in strategic places all over the U.S.

      • Kelly Payne

        MORE BULL CRAP IF PEOPLE CANT GET HEALTH COVERAGE ON THEIR OWN. THEY MAY QUALIFY FOR SUBSIDIES TO HELP PAY FOR OR THEY MAY QUALIFY FOR MEDICAID IF THEY LIVE IN THEW RIGHT STATE PEOPLE HAVE SLAUGHTERED ALL OVER THE WORLD NOT JUST CHRISTIANS AND IT IS NOT MILLIONS. HE HAS NOT PLAYED GOLF THAT OFTEN UNLIKE BUSH.OBAMA DOESN’T HATE ISREAL HE ALSO DOESN’T HAVE TO KISS THIER ASSES EITHER. AS FOR RUSSIAN RUSSIA INVADED ANOTHER COUNTRY FOR NO REASON. WE ARE NOT FRIEND WTH IRAN AND HE HAS NOT SUPPORTED THE MUSLIM BROTHER HOOD. MUSLIMS HAVE BEEN IN THIS COUNTRY FOR OVER A CENTIURY. HISPANIC HAVE ALSO BEEN COMING HERE FOR OVER A CENTURY AND THEY ARE NOT OVER RUNNING OUR COUNTRY. THANKS FOR CONFIRMING YOUR BIGOTRY.

      • kid721952

        subsidies will be gone before long,states don’t want to set up the exchanges,they know the truth,evidence has showed obama tried to keep netanyahu from being re-elected,thats real friendship,obama backed morci when elected in egypt and morci was a leader in the muslim brotherhood thats why egyptians over threw him,ALL muslims follow and support the koran which calls for the killing of ANYONE who does not believe or disrespects islam faith which is the majority of Americans,hispanics well they’ve been coming :ILLEGALLY” breaking the law and you will find if you check whites are the minority now,I’m tired of paying their living expenses,their healthcare,their education and their transportation to America

      • Abe Lillard

        Complete and total horseshit. Doesn’t deserve even a response but you are entertaining.

      • liberals suck

        affordable healthcare…tell me how the fuck people can afford 10,000.00 a year deductable on the cheapest bronze plan…please pull your head out of yous ass before making a statement like that…u look like an idiot…oh and have you read that the affordable care plan in Hawaii has collapsed..probably not its apparent you dont read

      • Susan Krsnich

        Compared to most in Congress who take their salaries without producing any foreseeable work, state the minimum hours they will convene, embarrass our country on internationally, and oars just too darn arrogant to admit that the voters of this country elected President Obama he has more character than it looks like they will ever have! Throwing snowballs, yelling on a televised function – calling him a liar, and Boehner’s kiss face – these people can’t conduct themselves with any decorum. THey are spoiled little brats trying to get even who get more angry by the minute because he won’t come down to their level. [just want to add that personally I’m glad they don’t’ convene any more than they do given they shoddy work]

      • Karmasue

        That is the problem…you could “care less about his color”. I care about it. He cares about it. And over 80 million other people of color care too. I believe it has helped mold him into the strong, patient and forgiving person he is today. You have simply renamed his color “character” in order to denigrate him without feeling guilty, or being recognized as a bigot.

      • 2Smart2bGOP

        “I could care less about his color….” Which implies that you DO care, as you have stated that you COULD care less. As for your assessment of his character, I suppose that your cowboy president, who took 977 days out of his eight years in office (about 32%) on VACATION has more character, in your pointless opinion? President Obama could take the entire rest of his term off, and still not have taken that much time off. Not to mention the unprecedented disrespect that has been shown to him by the Republican Party. He has more class and character than the entire GOP combined, but as long as you believe the crap you are fed by FOX “News,” you will remain an ignorant fool.

      • kid721952

        It would be the BEST THING TO HAPPEN to this country if he would stay on vacation the rest of his term

      • 2Smart2bGOP

        Well, he’s not a Republican, so……no.

      • kid721952

        THANK GOD,which he doesn’t believe in either or maybe he would do something about the thousands of christians being slaughtered ALL OVER THE WORLD

      • Kelly Payne

        KID WHY ARE YOU ONLY FOCUSED ON CHRISTIANS? THEY ARE NOT THE ONLY ONES BEING KILLED WHETHER HE BELIEVES IN GOD OR NOT IS IRRELEVANT.

      • kid721952

        Do you think he will treat you any different just because you are a democrat,when he hands the nuclear bomb to iran do you really think they will single you out and save you when they drop the bomb,you will be just as dead as me thanks to your party,you must be of the muslim faith also

      • Stan Thomas

        Your reply is absolutely hysterical! Iran’s capacity to create a bomb has been cut by 90% and a League of Nations will be watching and inspecting them frequently so no, they have no chance of making any bombs.

      • Kelly Payne

        3SCATMAMA THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH HIS CHARACTER.

    • Stan Thomas

      What they are running on is turning back the hands of time where they disenfranchise everyone except the rich and big business, get a couple of more wars started to usher in recession and inflation and a big fat war chest for the military. Only their dilemma is disguising all this
      to look like prosperity to the American people. Good luck with that.

      • liberals suck

        really…the rich..tell me then why has the rich got richer under the idiot prez then

      • Stan Thomas

        Simple; the stock market under President Obama has been the best of any president since Truman and interest rates are at an all time low. Of course their accountants and advisers are prompting them to buy big in a bull market.

    • kid721952

      color has nothing to do with bad decisions and bad policies,democrats have lies and scandals,a nuclear bomb in irans position,democrats won’t believe until there is a MUSHROOM CLOUD over the United States and then it will be to late,you can’t make a deal with people who want to kill you,theres STILL NO JOBS in 6 years,there is still high ER visits and 30 million people uninsured who will be fined which they will not be able to pay and then jail,obamacare is a scam,what has the democratic party accomplished that has helped America,the democratic party has absolutely NOTHING TO RUN ON excepy she is a woman

      • Aaron Johnson

        You have to be blind or watch Fox news all day long to not see all the new jobs. Construction is so busy in my state that can’t even find enough workers and I don’t live in Texas lol. Obamacare is no scam. Cruz signed up for it.

      • kid721952

        Who needs to watch tv,just look around the country is in more trouble than it has ever been in,you are the blind one and if the illegals don’t take over the country the Muslims will,I hope you are one or the other,you better hope Muslim otherwise you may be beheaded

      • noah vail

        how sad it must be to live your life in such fear

      • Abe Lillard

        Two word for you kid: “horse” and “shit”.

      • kid721952

        Yea,thats whats coming out of obamas mouth every time he opens it and yours to

    • Vince Tammaro

      not true! Obama is the wrong ist black president. I would vote for Ben Carson, Allen West, or even Clarence Thomas, or Thomas Sowell. They would defend the country. By the way there is no Iraq anymore, It is now the home of ISIS. Which like Iran, Obama’s best friend hahaha, want death to America.

  • Mainah

    Again with these people and using hostage tactics, which only really punishes we the people, just to spite the President. I’m sick of it. My own Governor is doing the exact same thing. I’ve had it with these dinks. They’ve completely forgot why they are there and what their role is. For f*ck’s sake.

  • stop2wonder

    Just goes to show that many (not all) GOP are more Anti-Obama than Pro-America. The “I don’t care how good a person you are” portion of his quote demonstrates that.

    For this guy, Obama failing is a higher priority than the health of America.

  • J. Meye

    It just goes to show that these college educated ingrates aren’t any better than a person with basic common sense.
    What do they do right?
    They use religion for personal gain. They brownie up to the state of Israel.
    The get nothing accomplished, they do the same things over and over with no progress.
    They give their self a raise, they plan their vacations, they buy new cars and new houses, they run for re-election, they do photo oops, they team up with other ingrates and embarress the country with treasonist acts against the president.
    And they all seem to have a gold star in the middle of their forehead and a lollypop for acting like a two year old.

  • BrowncoatVoter

    Worst. Congress. Ever.

  • SJvet

    We “birthers” yes, they always debate by just calling us names they think make us seem crazy, never said he wasn’t an American citizen. We said he’s not a natural-born citizen, whether he was born here or not. He’s the one, by the way, who said he was born in Kenya. The Supreme Court, in Minor v Happersett, stated that a natural-born citizen is a person born of TWO citizen parents. He never had that. Neither do three Republicans running for office, but I guess we’re just going to overlook the Constitution these days. Obama keeps his college records sealed, so what is he hiding and why doesn’t Congress demand to see what he’s hiding?

  • Penny

    You can not trust your Own Government anymore they all lie and when the truth comes out it is after the fact really we the People should throw them all out and start a new campaign for backing up and returning our heritage and foundations if anyone does not like our traditions then they can exit out I love my country but the USA was always kept together by the American Anthems my country this of thee and Star spangled banner in our schools a prayer and the flag flying high now it’s almost a crime to show you love this country and you state you wonder if we do get up off your pardon me (Ass and fix our country back the way it was our founders had it working until you idiots destroyed its meanings because you took them the wrong way) Grow up!

  • Bob

    He is at his all time low and the idiots still will not impeach him. I believe that he has so much on congress and the senate they cannot impeach him even if it means letting all of us go to hell they dont realize they will be treated as slaves with the rest of us.
