    I now see we've been on different wave lengths this entire time. See, you've been considering a Democratic House impeachment, a win. Meanwhile, when I've said "he's not going to be impeached", I've meant that he isn't going to be removed from office. Which he isn't, and while you probably wouldn't ever admit it, you know that as well.

    This House impeachment is like charging an innocent black guy with murder, and putting 12 KKK members on the jury. Of course the guy is gonna be convicted....by a sick group of people operating within a corrupt system. No different than this impeachment "win" for the Dems. Oh well. Win now, lose big in 2020. The chickens are going to come home to roost in 11 months.

    Do you know where the expression "the chickens are coming home to roost" comes from in popular discourse regarding politics? Ironic choice of phrase.

    Its amusing how people keep claiming this is going to give it to Trump in 2020.

    We all know American's attention span and we all know 11 months from now, this will all just be a blur.

    Normally I would agree with you 100%, but I don't think that's going to be the case this time. I really don't. Because when I travel on business, I've heard a ton of people across the country say they're pissed off that "nothing is getting done because of this impeachment shit". Right or wrong, that's what people believe. And these are people in Illinois and Pennsylvania (places I travel regularly). But let's assume you're right. It still doesn't change the fact that the Democratic nominees are a total clown show. Biden, Warren, Sanders, Blumberg. None of those candidates has what it takes to beat Trump. They just don't. They're certainly not going to be any more popular than Clinton was, and she got Three O' Foured to Two Twenty Sevened. You combine this impeachment bullshit with the Dem nominees & you have another landslide coming.

    This is true.
    His 2020 victory will have less to do with a sham impeachment and more to do with blexit & the economy.
    And cuz he's a BMF.

    Malcolm X said it about JFK after he was murdered. It led to his censure by the Nation of Islam. Obviously it's an old country saying, but whenever it comes up in politics, it's pretty much a way of saying he had it coming.

    Didn't expect the race card from you. Disappointing!!!

    Also disappointing is your lack of understanding of what "imoeachment" means. If you meant "removal from office".... Well ya shoulda said that.
    I've said it, as has everyone repeatedly that he would be "impeached in the house, and not removed in the senate". You knew that. Want me to post the quotes again?

    Fact is... He's been impeached. Period. You can't change the English language definition after the fact.

    Now get out the fucking whiskey and let's drink.
    Me for joy, you for sorrow.

    I hate to appeal to authority, but my whole dissertation is about Black electoral politics. I also talk about politics with Black people pretty routinely, being Black. This is a fool's bet.

    You're onto something, but you're looking at the wrong hashtag. There's one I won't mention that's wreaked a lot more havoc and may suppress some turnout, which is the bigger concern. Blexit and Owens is considered to be more or less a total joke. I'm assuming you're possibly also informed by the poll that was popularized by Owens and others saying 36% of likely Black voters were leaning GOP, but that was based on panel data compiled from a small group of voters in Southern US counties and didn't have much statistical power. Anyway, I accepted your bet. We're going by raw numbers as opposed to percentage here because there's really no such thing as a "Black vote." It's an election year fiction. If I'm wrong, I'll probably deport myself anyway.

    There were actually several attempts to impeach Bush and the House voted overwhelmingly to refer at least one filed by Dennis Kucinich containing 35 counts to the judiciary committee. It languished there for the last 6 months of his Presidency.

    There were also a number of Republican calls for Obama's impeachment on mostly spurious charges (e.g. secretly being from Kenya, supporting transgender bathrooms). Only when it was related to Libya did several prominent Republicans (and Kucinich again) speak seriously about it, but there were no clear legal or procedural violations unlike in this case or in Clinton's.
