    Total waste of time don't fund Obamacare and oppose the radical judiciary the administration is putting in place, block tax, increases reduce spending.



    I am sure there is much to investigate, but there are more important fish to fry here

    Always find it interesting that a country that distrusts congress.. is now planning on electing members with the mission of further immobilizing the country more.. lets not do intelligent things, lets get payback..

    Did you know we spent more money on the Clinton BJ, than we did on investigating 9-11??

    I think that congress should spend more time on MLB steroids or other such nonsense there is nothing else for them to do:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    What would be the anticipated end of this?? What would it achieve??

    In juxtaposition, when the Democrats took over and Pelosi and Reid assumed power they both came out and said that there wouldn't be an endless series of investigations of the lies and bs leading up to our invasion of Iraq. It would be too divisive and keep the country from getting anything done.

    Nope, no difference between the two parties here:rolleyes:

    We spent more on investigating Lewinski than we did on 9-11? That's just sick.

    Tip O'Neil basically said the same thing on Iran-Contra, with Reagan's exit. Seems there is still a 'we need payback' for Watergate. I must have missed the big misdeed and uproar concerning the Obama administration that merits an investigation. Was it his birth certificate or his religion?

    If anyone read the article...the GOP plans to investigate several things surrounding the Obama administration inclding Jobgate, Acorn, Chris Dodd, the bailouts, the funding of covert operations, and invasion of privacy among other things. The debate seems to focus on whether or not the public really wants Congress to spend its time on something that will divide the country even more.

    Clinton enters the scene because of Sestak and Jobgate, which is one of the major Obama admin's offenses cited.

    What's the point? Supposedly, Impeachment.

    I doubt the GOP will delve too far into Clinton's Arkansas days, if they do it'll take them places they probably don't want to go.

    You should all be glad that the Dems had enough class and intelligence not to embarass George any more than he did to this country... make the "new" congress even less relevant than the current one..

    It makes no sense, to tie up congress and get involved with all types of frivolous behavior that will have no outcome except to embarass a few.. if this congress had proceeded to investigate George W. the right would have their depends so for up their azz it would tickle their tonsils..

    I would really love to see an in depth investigation Xe, Haliburton and Wackenhut.. but that will never happen, because the puppet masters do not want it to happen.. keep focusing on ACORN and the rest of the small stuff, but no one wants to deal with the really big stuff and associated issues..

    I'm not so sure about that, of course people are generally uninformed and most prefer it that way unfortunately, so the statement could end up being true.

    Though the charges are far from 'frivolous' lol, I'm not sure a real, true and full investigation would transpire because it's led by the GOP. :bricks:
    There's only so far they can go before their dirty laundry gets aired out too. But one thing's for sure, there are a lot of policies I wouldn't mind seeing removed if he ever actually WAS impeached.

    It makes great rhetoric, but if they open one can of worms.. it often leads to another.. and George and his group, invariably would be led to the forefront..

    It would also paralyze congress and make them look less effective than they already are...

    One thing does lead to another...

    It would be exactly the wrong direction for them to go in on the slim chance that they do take back control. I think most people (myself included) want to see common sense solutions to our domestic and overseas problems. I would hope they'd spend their time trying to find common ground with the WH, but I guess we all know no matter the party they're all to self-absorbed to actually try something crazy like responsible governance.

    Exactly. The GOP is nobody to throw stones either which makes you wonder if it's simply too late to rein in such vast, non-partisan, and entrenched corruption. I DO think the proposed investigation into the backroom bailout deals and the extreme funding of covert operations would be worthwhile in the long run though. Somewhere somehow all this has to stop:eek:

    When you have a president who's suing a state and the state's suing him back, and even the ACLU's suing the president for perpetuating a "new normal" consisting of Bush's worst crimes gone global...can anyone stop the insanity in our so-called government so they can govern again? Maybe the better question is, will the American people ever demand that the govt stop campaigning and get back to governing?

    I find it amusing that you assume that the only reason anyone could ever disagree with you is that they are too dumb to know better.

    Humble much?

    Investigate it for what?
    I thought they wanted to get jobs...how does this help?
    People...if you think the Reps are going to make DC better, forget it.
    Their whole plan was to make Obama fail...country 2nd.
