2. A sham vote.

Name me ONE impeachable offense in that bill filed by those loser dems.

It's the same thing you did to Scott Walker in Wisconsin.

You wanted to impeach him because you don't like him.

It doesn't work that way.

That's why we have elections.

Losers.

3. So being ignorant of the constitution makes one a good governor?

This makes me embarrassed to say that I have a Colorado address. At least I don't live there any more.

4. House Votes Down Trump Impeachment Resolution

Fifty-eight House Democrats voted to advance the impeachment of President Donald Trump on Wednesday, in direct defiance of the pleas of House Democratic leaders earlier in the day. A vote to table the impeachment resolution was agreed to 368-58, with four Democrats voting just “present” and 126 other Democrats voting with Republicans to kill the resolution.

It may seem like this was an overwhelming confirmation of Trump ― and it was, in the sense that no Republican voted to advance impeachment and more than two-thirds of Democrats joined their GOP colleagues ― but 58 Democratic votes is still a significant statement on impeachment.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) issued a joint statement just before the vote urging their Democratic colleagues to reject the impeachment resolution. They presented the vote as a distraction from efforts to kill the Republican tax bill, which is swiftly making its way through Congress, and they cited the special counsel’s investigation of Trump, as well as inquiries from congressional committees, to plead with Democrats to hold off.

“Now is not the time,” Pelosi and Hoyer wrote.

5. but he isn't a big fan of the BoR or due process

In September 2015, Polis voiced support for altering university disciplinary processes surrounding campus rape to allow for cases to be judged against a reasonable likelihood standard, saying that: “If there are 10 people who have been accused, and under a reasonable likelihood standard maybe one or two did it, it seems better to get rid of all 10 people ... we’re not talking about depriving them of life or liberty, we’re talking about them being transferred to another university, for crying out loud.” After being criticized for these remarks, Polis apologized, saying that: "I went too far by implying that I support expelling innocent students from college campuses, which is something neither I nor other advocates of justice for survivors of sexual assault support".
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jared_Polis
Yes, you are talking about depriving of liberty, the ability to get a job or get into another university. We are also talking about Soviet-style tribunals where the defendant has no rights to a defense, face accuser, presumption of innocence. BTW, most if not all of the high profile cases were false claims. 20 percent of rape claims are false accusations.

Or as ethics blogger Jack Marshall put it
I can’t trust or respect an individual who says something this ineffably wrong and un-American to its core. Polis is a Princeton grad, a rich and brilliant entrepreneur, gay, and supposedly a civil rights advocate. Yet he thinks it is reasonable to kick a young man out of school if there’s a 1 in 5 chance that an accusation of sexual misconduct is accurate. How can this be? Is he hostile to heterosexual males? Is he a rank hypocrite?

I agree with him on some things, but that would be a deal breaker if he were one of the voting choices. Arrogant totalitarian assholes do not belong in public office, regardless of their party.

7. I know, and?

The only reason these assholes are pushing impeachment is that they are the anti-democratic fringe of the Democratic party. There is no valid reason for it.
Race baiting didn't work, appeals to emotion by actors didn't work, Move On and Antifa acting like Hiter's SA and Mao's Red Guard didn't work, death threats to electors didn't work.

Pro tip to Democrats, don't run a hated and corrupt authoritarian like Hillary or a socialist crackpot like Bernie.
