US House of Representatives votes to sue Obama

 

They might will impeach the president of USA...

Even if they impeach him it won't achieve anything. Clinton was also impeached but he's still regarded as a better President than George W Bush.

 

Conservatives need to stop wasting their time on nonsense like this and work constructively to govern the country. Instead they are responsible for the least productive congress in US history.

So after threatening to default and causing a government shutdown, Republicans next mission is to sue Obama.

Clinton was never FULLY impeached. He finished his term. The Senate did not have enough votes as required for impeachment, so he was acquitted.

This is correct. He was charged with 4 impeachable offenses, 3 of which were heard by the Senate. The Senate voted almost strictly across party lines (Dems held 55 seats to the Reps 45). The whole proceeding was mostly symbolic. The press did a fine job of convoluting his adultery with the impeachment hearings, when the impeachment proceedings were about perjury and abuse of power by Clinton in a separate case. Most Americans still think it was about Monica Lewinsky. We do have the attention span of circus monkeys.

And it's no more likely to succeed against Obama. At least in the Clinton case his perjury was indisputable.

 

Impeachment should be used for serious offences, like those committed by Nixon. This is just partisan bickering and does a disservice to politics as a whole.

Nixon was about partisan bickering too. Both sides ran covert ops on each other back then, and still do. In Michigan there were upper level Dems sent to prison for such shenanigans in 2010, a mess that implicated the former state Dem Chairman..
