Good post, but I'd like to rewrite the headline to read:
"Liberalism is Weak"
President Obama's approval ratings are at this point unscathed by the scandals swirling around him. That's because he uses the Alinskyite strategy of The Permanent Campaign. He is always campaigning. He is never seen as governing and can therefore appear to remain above the fray.
So perhaps Obama will escape these scandals unscathed. I hope not. But no matter what happens, he won't be impeached. That's because too many Republican politicians are too scared to impeach "The First Black President".
But liberalism will not escape unscathed. Any hopes that Congress will enact major liberal legislation during the remainder of Obama's term have been dashed. Any hopes that the Democrats will take control of the House in 2014 have been dashed. The full implementation of Obamacare in 2014 will only exacerbate the legislative impotence of the Left for the remainder of Obama's presidency.
