Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose
A Google alert brought me to the article, “Impeach Obama? 2014 Impeachment Starts Operation American Spring,” at Inquisitr.com. The article is headed by this Jon McNaughton portrait of a stern-faced Obama burning the US Constitution.
Interested readers can look at the specific items that article suggests might be impeachable offenses, but I found nothing especially egregious or out of line with things done by other US presidents who were not impeached, and certainly nothing reaching the lawlessness of Watergate or Iran-Contra. Nor is there anything new about an image of a president burning the Constitution:
The preceding cartoon1 depicts the United States as symbolized by the eagle rescuing the Constitution from being burned by Thomas Jefferson. It literally refers to the defeat of Jefferson by Adams in the 1796 presidential election.
