Better case needed

Ken Gormley's column “The lesson of Watergate & Nixon's resignation” makes no mention of President Obama but makes sense in the context of a broader discussion about impeachment. The timing and tone resembles a vague threat.

Andrew P. Napolitano's column “The only constitutional remedy left: Impeachment” is not so subtle. He uses bullet points. Too bad for him none of them represent a crime.

If the Republicans are going to start these proceedings, they better have a better case than guilt by association (IRS so-called scandal) or longstanding issues inherited from an earlier era (VA, immigration, NSA spying). Otherwise they, along with their comrades in the media, are wasting we the people's time.

Is the Trib's Opinion staff aware that the current Fox News talking point that conservatives are supposed to fall in line with is that the Democrats are the only ones currently talking about impeachment in order to garner sympathy in the upcoming general election?
