    It'd certainly ensure Obama's reelction, but how would it "help" the GOP?

    •  it will help them in 2012 (0+ / 0-)

      it is hard enough to campaign and run the country at the same time.

      if the president also has to deal with the megadistraction of impeachment hearings, that helps Rs control the news cycles.  it takes the focus off R wrongdoing and incompetence and puts the focus on a place where they think they are strong--criticism of Obama.

      it is naive to believe that impeachment hearings would ensure Obama's re-election, esp when there are so many Democrats who would join the fray.
