    That's the question. And while I'd like to see this prediction become reality, unless the Republican-controlled Congress is willing to FIGHT Obama's tooth and nail, and maybe impeach him for not following the Constitution and living up to the oath, he swore to protect us, the American citizens ... then it will not be any different with a divided Congress of a one-party Congress.

    That is the real question: Will the Republicans have the guts and courage to do what is needed to get this nation back? And I have to say I seriously doubt it! :BangHead:

    The House might impeach him - but it would take 2/3 of the Senate to convict - and that just ain't going to happen.

    Oh, don't be too sure of that .... if a lot of democrats remain distanced from him for what is supposed to be a change in power, they could take their anger out on him. Well, we can hope :laugh:

    Obama still has a 40+% approval rating. Too risky for Dems to upset their electorate.
    Distance, yes
    Convict, NO

    Better? Yes.

    But still ineffective.

    Obama has a veto pen and will use it on any worthwhile legislation that comes out of both houses of Congress.

    He will continue to operate as a dictator until either he is out of office or someone stops him.

    Impeachment is not possible. A waste of time. The wanna be king is unimpeachable.

    Yes but making him use his veto pen or even a pocket veto will make him own the mess he has created. Funny how he was ok with calling Obamacare Obamacare until it tanked and now it's the Patient protection and Affordable Care Act because he doesn't want to own it. Just like as a Senator he only vote present (except where killing babies is concerned). The republicans must make him own his administration and all their failures
