"IMPEACH?!?!" Barack Obama? For what?

Via PhysOrg:

Apparently, there are some people who can't really get themselves to accept that their candidate lost the presidential election. Some people on Facebook have decided that they are going to try and get support to impeach Barack Hussein Obama. For what? Apparently PhysOrg doesn't know:
Barack Obama has not even been sworn in yet as the 44th president of the United States but groups are springing up online calling for his impeachment.
On Facebook, an "Impeach Barack Obama" group has attracted more than 700 members and a lively debate about the Democrat's election victory on Tuesday over Republican John McCain.
Another Facebook group of the same name has 160 members and urges others to join because "we might as well get a head start on the impeachment of Obama."
"There are a lot of Americans out there that do not fully understand the concept of Socialism or Communism which is why they've elected Obama as president," it says.
Yet another Facebook group, "Impeach Barack Hussein Obama," has 160 members.
It decries that Obama "has voiced support for various unconstitutional programs such as the assault weapons ban, universal healthcare, and various schemes for wealth distribution."
"What are we going to do about it? IMPEACH HIM!" it says.Obama still has some way to go, however, to equal the number of "Impeach George Bush" groups on Facebook, which lists at least 95 such groups with varying membership.
  I can't really figure it out, either... From the first one on the list (with over 900 members at 6:50PM on Nov. 5, 2008):
Get on board if you want to be ready to impeach Barack Obama.

Each president recites the following oath, in accordance with Article II, Section I of the U.S. Constitution:

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

This group has been created under the assumption that it takes approximately 7 seconds for a modern day President to violate this oath. So we should be ready.

"In some governments it is held that 'the king can do no wrong;' here we know no king but the law, no monarch but the constitution; we hold that every man may do wrong; the higher he is in office, the more reason there is that he be obliged to answer for his conduct; and a great officer, if treacherous, is a great criminal, so that he ought to be made to suffer a great and exemplary punishment."

--Elementary Catechism on the Constitution of the United States, Arthur J. Stansbury, 1828
WTF? I just don't know... This does, though, seem to relate to what I was saying in my other post about how McCain/Palin are leaving behind a fractured, fractious, and wounded country of their own creation.
