Last night was one for the annals of history. I thought it would be a nail-biter as I watched ABC News and Romney was ahead by about a million popular votes and the Electoral Count was stuck at 123 Obama to 163 Romney. I turned to Fox News and they were all but gloating as if their horse had come in for them. Then back to ABC where I could listen to sane people and I watched as the results poured in and President Obama coasted to an Electoral College victory and even took Florida it seems. But now that we have at least 4 more years of sanity, we wont be able to savor it for very long.
As we know, the GOP/TP coalition has been tossing around the "I" word almost since the day President Obama was inaugurated. They seem to have forgotten what the Constitution says and have written their own version of the law concerning impeachment of the President. We don't like him, we can't get around him, so impeach him for, whatever. " High Crimes and Misdemeanors " has no meaning. Impeachment is a threat and a weapon they have used since the Clinton Administration to move the mountains that they can't move through the normal process, by the popular or electoral vote.
It's just a matter of time. They have already circulated a made up scenario on Benghazi that both the CIA and even former Secretary of state Condoleeza Rice have debunked. Ms. Rice, a great American and a loyal Republican seems to have no credibility to the right if her sanity overrides their penchant for conspiracy theories. Then there's " Fast and Furious " which has also been debunked but the rumor lives on in the minds of the Extreme Right who considers Breitbart their God of truth. They have many scenarios that they will float, but you can be assured that the very next sound you hear is the call for impeachment because, well, we just don't like your elected President.
We may be able to get through December and to the inauguration, but it's doubtful, but I can assure you that after the New Year's ball drops on Time's Square, the next loud and obnoxious sound you hear will be the cry for impeachment. For absolutely no reason at all.
Congratulations, Mr. President. Four more years. You earned it. Enjoy it while it lasts though. I think the next four years will be more turbulent for you than the first four.
