One Impeachment-Related Post, That’s It

World Net Daily – among many other right-wing sites, calls for President Obama to be impeached practically daily. I count at least three articles this week about it on WND this week, and the week isn’t over yet in the US.

It’s seriously not worth going into the subject of the posts nor the comments of the commenters. Though the latest two stories I have up are commenting on other people saying that impeachment of Obama is only among the right-wing fringe, and the other specifically is a link to an article (“OUT OF LEFT FIELD”) that specifically says WND’s constant drumming of the issue is “absurdity.”

I’m not even going to link to the articles — it’s not worth it. What I will link to is a Time article/blog entitled, “The Escalating GOP Call to Impeach Obama.” I link to it because it emphasizes the apparent fact – that I didn’t know – that pretty much ever since Ronald Reagan (hallowed be His name), people have been calling for the impeachment of every sitting president fairly often.

So, WND’s constant call might be annoying, repetitive, and petulant, but it’s nothing new or special. And there’s not an escalating movement, despite what they try to tell you.
