Impeach Obama?

Conservatives are already calling for it:

‘Impeach Obama’ groups pop up on Facebook

Barack Obama has not even been sworn in yet as the 44th president of the United States but groups are springing up online calling for his impeachment.

On Facebook, an “Impeach Barack Obama” group has attracted more than 700 members and a lively debate about the Democrat’s election victory on Tuesday over Republican John McCain.

Another Facebook group of the same name has 160 members and urges others to join because “we might as well get a head start on the impeachment of Obama.”

Jesus, guys, he hasn’t even been sworn in yet. And do realize that to impeach him he actually has to do something to deserve it, right? Specifically–according to article 2, section 4 of the Constitution–he would have to commit “treason, bribery, or other high crimes or misdemeanors.”

You can’t  impeach a president just because you don’t like him or his policies.

If this is a sign of what the conservative movement is going to spend the next 4 (or, hopefully, 8) years doing they better get used to being in the minority.
