    The problem is one politician will come up with a ploy and then later politicians will expand it. Remember President Reagan and "plausible deniability" about the Sandinistas? Now we have a President who keeps track of what is going on in his administration by watching the news. There are a number of embarrassments that he claimed he only found out about when they were reported in the news.

    If we believe him, President Obama is clueless about what is happening in his administration. I could believe VP Biden if he claimed that but I kinda think the President is pulling our legs.

    I don't believe he did. He was using information that, at the time, was believed to be creditable. There is a big difference. And there is no question that Irag had WMD's. The question became "where did he stash them?" Syria maybe.
    I can't believe after 11 years that you still believe that they believed that there was a good cause to go to war in Iraq. WMDs? For Pete's sake, the US has WMDs, to the tune of the most advanced nuclear arsenal in the world, and to date, is the only country to ever have used nuclear weapons.

    They lied. There was no evidence that Saddam posed any threat to the US. That should be the only reason the US goes to war - an actual attack. If Bush et al aren't impeachable over thousands of troops dead/maimed and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis dead/maimed/displaced, then Obama is hardly impeachable over a freaking healthcare plan and a nonfunctional website. (And I didn't vote for him in '12.)

    Obama Accused of ‘Crimes Against Humanity’ | Raymond Ibrahim

    According to Egyptian newspaper El Watan, a group of Egyptian lawyers has submitted a complaint charging U.S. president Barrack Hussein Obama with crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court.
    Along with Obama, the complaint reproduced by El Watan mentions several Brotherhood members by name, beginning with the leader of the organization Muhammad Badie, and other top ranking leaders such as Mohamed al-Beltagy, Essam al-Erian, and Safwat Hegazi, adding that “Obama cooperated, incited, and assisted the armed elements of the Muslim Brotherhood in the commission of crimes against humanity in the period from 3/7/2013-8/18/2013, in the Arab Republic of Egypt.”

    Acting on information you thought was truthful from reliable sources is different that finding out later that it was bad information. That does not make it lying; if anything, they were victims and those who want to think they lied continue that.

    Forgotten or neglected in discussions of the Iraq war is the fact the legal basis given was Hussein was not complying with UN resolutions. I opposed the war because I felt if the UN should enforce their own resolutions. If they want to be ineffective it's fine with me.

    I'm not pleased with him necessarily, but I can't find a logical or legal reason to have him impeached. I didn't agree with G.W. Bush either, but I also didn't see any reason he should have been impeached either. They're politicians. They're kind of at the mercy of Congress and whatever corporate monkeys help with their money. I don't necessarily blame them for our problems, I blame those 535 slackers that call themselves Congress.

    I am pretty sure that is why he chose Biden.

    Here's another thought, instead of impeaching President Obama for not enforcing laws we might thank him for the idea.

    Obama has shown how a future GOP president can gut Obamacare | WashingtonExaminer.com

    The changes instituted by the Obama administration in response to implementation snags have ranged from perfectly legal areas of administrative discretion stemming from the vast regulatory powers granted to the HHS secretary under Obamacare, to more creative interpretations of that discretion, to Obama simply choosing to ignore parts of the law that became inconvenient.
    As businesses barked about the requirement that they provide qualifying health insurance or pay a fine, Obama decided not enforce the law's employer mandate in 2014, even though the law explicitly states that's when it's supposed to kick in.
    In the face of a public backlash over millions of Americans having their health insurance policies cancelled despite the president's repeated assurances that it wouldn't happen, Obama announced that he simply wouldn't enforce the requirements on insurance policies that are clearly spelled out in the law.
    Though a lot will depend on how implementation goes over the next several years and what the politics of health care looks like in 2017, Obama has provided his potential Republican successor with a path to fight Obamacare through executive action.

    Republicans to vote on suing President Obama -- is impeachment next? | PBS NewsHour

    Most Americans don’t support impeaching President Obama, a CNN/ORC poll found Thursday. Just 33 percent said he should be impeached, while nearly two-thirds — 65 percent — disagreed. Just 41 percent said they believe Republicans should file a lawsuit against the president; 57 percent said they should not. But here’s the big difference: 57 percent of Republicans said they believe the president SHOULD be impeached while just 13 percent of Democrats and 35 percent of independents said so. On the lawsuit, fully three-in-four — 75 percent — of Republicans said one should be filed. Just 12 percent of Democrats and 43 percent of independents felt the same way.

    GW Bush lied about WMDs in Iraq; he wasn't impeached.

    No he didn't. He did tell huge fat lies about Iraq, the threat it posed, about the war, and about why were invading, and how we were doing it. However he honestly believed that Iraq had WMDs. While ALL the propaganda about nukes was obviously lies, and the bio weapons was VERY suspect, even I thought that we would find some old, long forgot chemical artillery shells in Iraq.
    No the big lie Bush told wasn't that Iraq had WMDs, the BIG LIE was that Iraq posed enough of a threat to justify invasion and engaging in a decade long bloody occupation. Bush and company were pretty much alone in the world in telling that lie. Of course there were lots of other smaller lies to go along with it.
