Would liberals be "crying impeachment" if this was Bush?

So says journalist Jeremy Scahill who has a new film out titled Dirty Wars. It's about the US's covert operations overseas during the GWoT (General War on Terror). On Boss Obama he says,

He’s expanded an air war in Yemen; Bush bombed Yemen once that we know of. Obama shut down the black sites, but he’s using a sort of back door way of continuing it but saying, ‘It’s other nations’ security forces that are doing the snatch and grab; we’re just asking the questions. … I think that a lot of liberals sort of checked their conscience at the coatroom for the two terms of Obama and are silent in the face of things that they’d be crying impeachment over if a Republican had done them.

You really think so? They didn't do it to George W. Bush from 2003 to 2008 when he supposedly "lied" about WMDs in Iraq, among other things. On the other hand, the GOP impeached Bill Clinton for what -- lying under oath to hide an affair? So, I think this is a bit unfair to liberals/Democrats.
