Impeachment now

We all knew it was coming but here is the lede of an Associated Press report (emphasis added):

WASHINGTON Jan 12, 2005 — The search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq has quietly concluded without any evidence of the banned weapons that President Bush cited as justification for going to war, the White House said Wednesday.

Bush lied to Congress and the American people. Those lies caused and continue to cause the deaths of hundreds of American soldiers and countless thousands of Iraqis, not to mention dooming any sort of sound fiscal or budgetary policy.

This may not fit neatly into the constitutional requirement of high crimes and misdemeanors, but when everything else surrounding him taking us to war for no justifiable reason is included, Bush has undoubtedly engaged in substantial and serious misconduct. Unfortunately, 51 percent of voting Americans were too stupid to get rid of him in November when they had the chance to redeem this country. Blood stains their hands too. Perhaps impeachment is a sliver of atonement.

  • If Democrat Senators are not all wearing pink tutus when the hearings start on Michael Chertikoff or whatever his name is…the guy who Bush thinks should be Homeland Security Head after the previous nominee got flushed.

    Chertikoff was the GOP attorney who thought Clinton’s sexual indiscretion was reason enough to impeach him.

    That should be brought up by Sen. Johnson.. well every Democrat with balls if there are any any more.. and then ask the nominee if he thinks Bush should be impeached for looking Americans in the eye and lying about a war and nearly everything about it before and after.

    Democrat wimp is not selling. Rodney Dangerfield had the comedy routine about “don’t get no respect’ if I remember correctly. The Senate Democrats and Kerry as candidate are a collection of political Rodneys.
