Here are interesting articles from the past week that are worth a read (even if, on occasion, I do not agree).
Democrats want Obama impeached?
The Democratic Party is not just hoping Republicans will impeach President Obama, they’re promoting the concept. What better way is there for Democrats to excite their disheartened base during this year’s midterm elections than images of white guys flogging our black President with parchments emblazoned with the Constitution?
