NEW YORK -- Thousands of officers and onlookers came together Saturday morning to show respect to New York Officer Rafael Ramos, who was shot in his patrol car last week.
Suing the president or, as we call it, “impeachment lite.” So why is the House suing the president? First, you understand the House is made up of lawyers and suing is what lawyers do. Secondly, it is because they know they cannot impeach him. The last time the Republicans tried to impeach a Democrat president, the press crucified them. That Democrat went on to be disbarred from the practice of law for lying to a Grand Jury and then, for no reason intelligent people could ever understand, became the darling of the Democrat party. Thirdly, even if they were successful with articles of impeachment, that would leave us with what has been identified as “impeachment insurance,” Joe Biden. So they are left with only this attempt to embarrass the president.
Re: Cannot vote for Hiremath, July 23 - Maksim states that “Selecting a candidate for public office based purely on his/her support for same-sex unions is silly as selecting a candidate based purely on skin color or gender – witness our recent national experience with a sitting president and with a former Secretary of State.” Facts prove that the latter part of this statement is totally false. Facts show that the American people not only once, but twice, voted their conscience and selected Barack H. Obama & Joe Biden over John McCain and Sarah Palin and more recently over Mitt Romney (Mr. 47 percent) and Paul Ryan because past performance and the debates proved that the Obama-Biden team displayed the ability to better serve the American people. Ergo, skin color proved not to be the deciding factor but ability to do the job as displayed to the American people.
