Well if we want to get really technical then we can say if there wasn't ground to suddenly and quickly stop on he wouldn't have died...

Brilliant idea, choose a VP so abhorrent to your enemies that they become partners in your safety.
Impeaching a President does not mean said President has to leave office. keep in mind that Clinton was impeached.

I need answers to the following before responding:

1) Your definition of a "lie"
2) What constitutes a "lie"?

there were people hanging out on an overpass near home this weekend waving giant american flags and signs that said "impeach Obama". I was tempted to stop and ask what grounds to impeach him on, but figured it wouldn't be worth the hassle.

I heard he is running for a 3rd term. He couldn't impose his Stalinist communist regime in 2 terms so he will need a 3rd to complete it.

I would think the Repubs had learned from how badly that Clinton impeachment gambit worked our for them and would have enough sense not to countenance trying that again with Obama. I also thought they had learned from how badly their government shutdown of 1997 worked out for them, and, well...

That was the point I was making impeachment would only make him stronger.

As for the 1997 shutdown, I guess after that they got shellacked in the 1998 elections, huh? The balanced budgets that Democrats brag about, were a direct result of dragging Clinton kicking and screaming to them by way of the shutdowns.

What I though twas funny is that nobody noticed that NONE of the insurance companies fought the Health Care Bill.

That alone told me it was a bad bad thing..

If it had any neg on the insurance companies, or a positive for the customers they would have fought it to the grave.

Which would be significant if you lived in, say, Oman.

I'm not saying he's a Muslim, Islam is saying he's a Muslim. He's gone on record saying he's a Christian. Fine by me. I wouldn't give a rat's furry behind if he was a practicing Muslim. Do you not think that him being seen as a Muslim by the Muslim world is significant?

There are misconceptions about that.

I seriously doubt than any significant number of Muslims consider him as anything else than a practicing and actual Christian. IIRC, his father was an avowed atheist and his mother agnostic. The whole Muslim "question" was essentially a right wing/GOP ploy to portray Obama as some sort of exotic, un-American "other," a Manchurian Candidate if you will, particularly to their xenophobic and frankly, intolerant (among other things) evangelical base. Fortunately there weren't enough old white bigots for that sentiment to take root and he was elected twice.

That the right/GOP indulged in such attempted slander with those prone to such sentiments is yet another chapter that has alienated the GOP to the majority of the future voter demographic (younger, more diverse, way more tolerant).
