Gird Your Loins & A Review of Obama's Greatest Hits

Jonathan Chait warns that the Republicans are going to Do It:

Wait, you say. What will they impeach him over? You can always find something. Mini-scandals break out regularly in Washington. Last spring, the political press erupted in a frenzy over the news that the White House had floated a potential job to prospective Senate candidate Joe Sestak. On a scale of one to 100, with one representing presidential jaywalking and 100 representing Watergate, the Sestak job offer probably rated about a 1.5. Yet it was enough that GOP Representative Darrell Issa called the incident an impeachable offense.

Most of this article is hidden behind a subscription wall, unfortunately.  You can occasionally hear Chait on the Hugh Hewitt radio show -- no doubt this is not the last we'll hear of this subject.

Elsewhere, Victor Davis Hanson observes Obama on the latest wing of his endless campaign tour and finds something lacking:

It all reminds me of the failed comeback tour of the proverbial fading rock star, the desperate promos for the sinking supposed blockbuster Hollywood movie, or perhaps something akin to Jerry Ford’s WIN buttons or the Carter desk thump.

And looking towards lesser lights, a blogger at firedoglake is distressed that Obama hasn't initiated massive criminal prosecutions against bankers (at least I think that's what he's saying), and reminds us that Nobody Messes With Joe:

The Obama Administration needs to turn from its so-called pragmatism and fulfill the need for Justice NOW, or Obama must resign and give Joe Biden a chance to serve the American people.
