Just wondering how many individuals realized the following tidbit of information. I'm willing to bet not many. I know I didn't.
THE HILL - Congressional Democrats have talked about the impeachment of President Obama 20 times more than Republicans have on the House and Senate floors.
Since the start of the 113th Congress last year, Democrats have used the word “impeach” or “impeachment” regarding Obama 86 times, according to a review of the Congressional Record by The Hill.
Utterances on the floor from Republicans about impeaching Obama, in contrast, have been relatively rare. Only three Republicans in this Congress have raised the subject on the House floor, and the words have been used a total of four times by GOP members.
Most of the talk has come from House Democrats, with Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (Texas) alone using the words 18 times in two separate speeches late last month.
In the Senate, where the GOP hopes to retake a majority this fall, not a single Republican has mentioned impeachment on the floor over the last couple of years.
The figures highlight how impeachment has been a hot topic for Democrats, and one most Republicans want to avoid.
The campaign arm for House Democrats raised $2.1 million in online donations over a single July weekend while talking up the possibility that Republicans would impeach Obama.
Most Republicans have sought to avoid the topic, which they see as a lose-lose situation
So, it appears the democrats view keeping talk of impeachment on the front burner to be a great way to snag those donor dollars and ignite, or perhaps incense is a better word, the leftist base of the D party.
I guess when there ain't all that much positive going for your party going into an election year you take what you can get.
