    Yahtzee! That's 3 Presidents being threatened with impeachment in a row!


    Seriously, if he gets impeached for this Reagan should have also been impeached.

    Complete and total bullshit, as usual.

    Which military action of Reagan's are you referencing?

    There seems to be a real misconception that there must be a Congressional Declaration of War before military action can be initiated now. Ron Paul has perpetuated this view.

    Your presidential candidate lost? Impeach the winner for doing something disagreeable.

    According to the article the guy had been feuding with the Bush administration over war policies, as well.

    I don't know why. Bush had Congressional authorization.

    I think he just disagrees with our meddling in foreign affairs and is using the threat of impeachment as a weapon in that fight.

    yup. like it or not. it's been proven the president has the authority to get us involved without congress.

    No. There was a "fear" that some US citizens on the island COULD be taken as hostages, but they never were.

    But only for 90 days right? Then it has to be approved or GTFO.

    I thought there had to be an eminent threat for that to fly. No?

    Eh. I feel like you could still argue a certain threat.

    regardless of threat levels that the GAP is aware of, this is stupid. President was elected for a reason and is surrounded by a boatload of folks who would love to say no publicly if he happened to be doing something clearly unwarranted or unlawful.

    I'm sure there are US citizens in Syria somewhere, and one could make a similar argument.

    Eh. Don't really care one way or the other.

    seems like that it is purely subjective though. I'd imagine anything that would require us to send troops in would not be good for middle east stability which could be argued created an eminent threat for us and our allies.
