    Will Republicans impeach Obama? - The Week

    "Here me now and believe me later," says Jonathan Chait in The New Republic: If Republicans take control of the House, they will try to impeach President Obama. They won't succeed in removing him from office, Chait says, but given that key congressmen are already calling "mini-scandals" or non-scandals impeachable offenses, you can bet that the GOP's "political warfare" will include an impeachment attempt if Obama wins a second term. Would the GOP really try?

    No they wont. Unless they want the same people who are going to vote them back into power in a few weeks to vote them back out again.

    The mandate is to end the big government programs, cut spending to reduce the deficits instead of raising taxes to do so, and to keep the government within its constitutional boundries.

    If the people that get voted in fail to work for these things they will get voted out again next time around. The voting american population has changed drastically over the last 5 years, mostly thanks to Bush's decisions waking people up then obama's decisions solidifying the suspicion that both sides are screwballs who can't handle their jobs.

    We are now awake and will not go back to sleep.

    A moot point. A second term? That's laughable.

    Did Obama leave his spunk on some intern's dress?

    :eek:

    ^^This right here.

    He will not win a second term either. McCain wouldn't have won a second term either.

    Clinton's impeachment was probably the best thing to ever happen to him. It ended up outing a load of Republican hypocrits who were themselves guilty of the same sin, and generated a lot of public sympathy for him by the time it was over.

    If the GOP go after Obama the same way they'll blow any political momentum they've got and give Obama ammunition to easily win in 2012. If they try it during a second Obama term, it won't go any better for them.

    Many thought Clinton couldn't win a second term either. I think some people are jumping the gun. A massive Rep win this fall could be the best thing that happens to Obama. The Tea Party thing will probably fizzle out, as it becomes harder and harder to hide the crazy, IMO.
