GOP control of both the House and Senate won’t make it easier to impeach Obama

Some of the Republican Party’s less sophisticated thinkers are peddling the foolish notion that the results of  today’s elections likely will make it a lot easier to impeach and convict Barack Obama before the scheduled end of his second term in the White House.
