The Idiocy of Tom Tancredo

From all appearances, the GOP is poised to capitalize on the country's disgust with Democratic governance and retake one or both houses of Congress in November. The last thing we need are nuts like Tom Tancredo railing about Obama being a "dedicated Marxist who lives in the White House," calling him "a dedicated enemy of the Constitution," and pretending there is any reason for his impeachment. Here's another sample of Tancredo.
the greatest threat to our Constitution, our safety and our liberties, is internal. Our president is an enemy of our Constitution, and, as such, he is a danger to our safety, our security and our personal freedoms.
This is ridiculous hyperbole. Obama's view of the Constitution is in line with probably 40%+ of the county. I don't agree with Obama about very much, but saying he's an internal enemy, and a greater danger to the country than Al Qaeda is insane. As of later this year, Obama may be constrained by GOP control of one or both houses of Congress. By 2016 at the latest, he'll be out of office, hopefully in 2012. Tancredo's hysterical nonsense is almost exactly the same type of garbage we heard from the left during the eight years of the Bush administration.

Tancredo's idiotic call for impeachment helps Obama and the Democrats. It alienates moderates and independents, and assists the left in linking the GOP to fringe lunatics consumed with hatred for the president. If Tancredo wants to strike a blow against Obama and Democratic control of the government, the best thing he could possibly do would be to shut his mouth, and quietly support GOP efforts in November.
