My response to the title of your thread (President Obama is not going to be impeached. He’s not going anywhere until his term is over) is: that is exactly right; he is here to stay and do his job until his 2nd term is over.
I am just wondering...when the 2nd term is over...if people will try to discredit him again etc.

At the end of the day, it just that, an end of the day.... nothing significant happened and nothing will.
If people believe they have proof of things against him then let them have their day in court and prove themselves.
Perhaps even if nothing happens it can be used against him in the future and to stop him from holding other offices or people voting for him, also it could help stop him extended his presidency past the 2 terms or erasing term limits.
and, for the record, it was Bush Jr who wanted to re-examine the 2 term limit. It was Bush Jr who, jokingly of course, lamented over the fact that it would be much easier if it were a dictatorship and he the dictator.\

How Mr. Obama manages to do that while also balancing American interests is a question that officials acknowledge will plague this historic president for months to come. Mr. Obama has told people that it would be so much easier to be the president of China. As one official put it, “No one is scrutinizing Hu Jintao’s words in Tahrir Square.”

"This is something I’ve struggled with throughout my presidency," said Obama. "The problem is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed."
