Less than a week after a Foxbot reminded Dick Cheney that, “Time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong as well in Iraq, sir,” Fox talking head Neil Cavuto blasted tea party Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) on his show last night after she called for impeaching the president:
In a gambit to lay the groundwork for impeachment, the GOP leadership has announced plans to sue Pres. Obama on grounds that he has abused his authority by issuing executive orders to implement policies. In their single terms in office, Republican presidents Theodore Roosevelt issued 1,081 EOs, Calvin Coolidge issued 1,203 orders and Herbert Hoover [...]
Frustrated that they haven’t been able to beat Pres. Obama fairly and squarely, the Republican Party’s base is signalling it is ready to initiate its gambit-of-last-resort and commence impeachment proceedings against Obama.

I could have arrested Karl Rove on any given day. I’m not kidding. There’s a prison here in the Capitol … If we had spotted him in the Capitol, we could have arrested him.
– House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) reacting to Speaker John Boehner’s plan to call a vote on a contempt citation for Attorney General Eric Holder over charges related to the Republicans’ bogus Fast & Furious scandal, and inadvertently naming the second-greatest missed opportunity of of her tenure as House speaker — the first being her decision to take the impeachment of George W. Bush “off the table.”
There they go again. The drumbeat on the right for impeaching Pres. Obama is reaching a feverish pitch. The GOP put impeaching the president on the table last summer, even before it was a cinch they would retake the House in November.
