Bush?" letfreedomring May 5, 2007 at 1:50 am It is our duty as Americans to impeach. We have to show that we as a people are free to elect who we want in office but when breaking the laws of this country and the world they should be let go just as any one person doing something inexcusable at work. He is on the job right now and works for us!! You and me! Dont know about you but its pretty simple every day he is there conducting this job things seem to be getting worse by the minute. If you had an employee destroying your company in front of you what would you do? You wouldnâ€™t keep that person for any length of time. Not even a day. By letting him go in office its showing this country and world that we really donâ€™t care about the country we live. Its being seen every where in every country on earth. If we are not careful maybe another country might thing we need help here because we have lost control of our country. I donâ€™t know about you but I sure donâ€™t need or want the help like we gave Iraq. Think about it. Vicki Jenifer D. May 7, 2007 at 11:53 am is all we seem to have to offer up if we don’t have the proper backing to impeach the chimp and his handler(s). The house and the Senate’s reluctance to aggressively act on what they have witnessed; the multitude of Constitutional slights, violations, and downright complete disregard of the laws set in place nearly 300 years ago makes them accomplices to the destruction of the American democracy. IMHO, they all need to be sent packing and suitable replacements elected by paper-vote; not those electronic abominations (Diebold) that got us into this mess to begin with! mojibyrd May 9, 2007 at 10:01 pm The public has made it loud and clear that they no-longer care for the services of little boy Bush, so why the hell is it taking so-long to get impeachment underway…get rid of him so he can go insult the queen of Uzbekastan or some other country for that matter, just get rid of him. Impeach Bush Now & do not forget to take Cheney along for the ride also!! rafferty May 10, 2007 at 7:20 pm I voted in favor of impeaching. Though I agree with others that it is necessary to impeach both. In fact, I think the best approach would be to impeach Cheney FIRST, then impeach Bush. I do certainly agree that there are MANY important issues for the Democratic Party to focus on, such as demanding an end to the war or electing a Democrat to office in 2008. I still would like to see at least an attempt at impeachment. To me, it is the principle of the matter. I would like to see the Bush administration be held accountable for their actions and be forced to answer many unanswered questions. caseycm2007 July 29, 2007 at 4:40 pm I too felt like nottoolate when he or she says “Impeachment of Bush is a waste of time and taxpayer’s money.” I bought Pelosi’s argument that time would be better spent on other issues, and I hoped one was getting a democrat into office. BUT, then I watched Bill Moyer’s Journal on the subject, and I became an impeachment zealot. Please watch the clip http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/07272007/watch.html angelina July 25, 2007 at 3:26 am I agree with bjiller, that impeaching Bush without impeaching Cheney would be useless. Cheney is really running things. Bush is just the mouthpiece. If Bush alone is impeached, nothing with change. Cheney and Bush are both war criminals and have subverted the Constitution since they were “selected” by the Supreme Court. They both must be impeached to restore our democracy. You should ask people to vote on whether to should impeach Bush AND Cheney. Nothing else makes sense. Nancy Pelosi would not be a perfect president, but she is not a criminal. Razor April 25, 2007 at 9:40 am Of course they should impeach Bush and Cheney for a host of reasons. War Crimes for one. Or illegal spying on citizens, or lying under oath, or subversive actions contrary to the constitution, on and on. nottoolate April 26, 2007 at 12:52 am Impeachment of Bush is a waste of time and taxpayer’s money. Hamstring George Bush and his goons like they did to Clinton to keep him busy. I don’t like the man but the time has past for impeachment. The citizens need to be more aware of who they vote for and take the time to evaluate who is being voted for. Arlo J. Thudpucker May 1, 2007 at 8:15 pm Much easier. Darth’s constituency is insignificant. While I am not aware of his precise approval numbers, he’s obviously swirlin’ with the Charmin. Now, all you need is to pitch VP with appeal to both parties. Someone desperate, that the GOP thinks has appeal, but, in reality, poses no threat in 2008. McCain would fill the bill very nicely. And, Johnny aspires to be king. All the better. If you look at the 25th Amendment, you’ll notice that it requires, among other things, approval from the VP. McCain would throw Bush under the bus in a heartbeat. Read the 25th. A clean way to get rid of King George the Stupid. Ardie April 26, 2007 at 11:16 am Oh the RepubliCONs were eager to impeach President Clinton even though they didn’t have the votes in the Senate to convict him. They did it to stain his historical record. Well, I say an eye for an eye. We need to blacken this president’s reputation and that of his family. He should be an object lesson for the next president that we will impeach you if you ruin the reputation of our country. surgethis April 26, 2007 at 2:04 pm The impeachment of Bush/Cheney is an imperative. It has “EVERYTHING” to do with restoring this Republic and “NOTHING” to do with partisan politics or time lines. The Bush/Cheney administration is in fact an illegal enterprise that has engaged in crimes against the Constitution of the United States. Early on during the Clinton presidency the right wing knew … impeachment would be a threat to their plans of a one party rule. An illegal take over of the Republic would be impossible unless the very thought of impeachment could be linked with bitter resentment and therefore not legitimate. Therefore they sought with a vengeance to counterfeit it’s purpose and make it appear a political act of retaliation instead of the remedy it was designed to be. Bush/Cheney is a rouge criminal presidency and unless they are impeached and held accountable no less than our Republic is lost if in fact it is not already gone. jamesp130 April 26, 2007 at 9:21 pm Amen. The republican party has become a criminal interprise led by Karl Rove. It is clear that their purpose is to overthrow the government. They have stolen two presidential elections and established an administartion that has been answerable to no one until the 2006 elections. Thankfully the Democratic congress is trying to bring these rogues to account. This country has never been in such jeapordy, these Republicans make the Communists look like amatuers. When Karl Rove read Orwells 1984 his reaction must have been: “I think I can make this work” because it reads like the blueprint for the Bush Administration. “You can’ta fool me, there ain’t no sanity clause. Chico Marx in ‘Night at the Opera’. Jim Warren April 26, 2007 at 11:03 pm Even though it would be a waste of time and money trying to remove him (or them), there is another reason to do it. It would send a message to the rest of the world that the American people are not the monsters that the world has come to believe. The message to the world would be, “The American People Finally Wake Up”, instead of the current message, “The American People Really Don’t Get It.” That alone would be worth the price. â€”Wâ€” knockknock April 27, 2007 at 7:30 pm The president’s insurance against impeachment is the vice president. If President Bush is impeached, then we’re stuck with Cheney who appears to be the puppeteer. If both were to be impeached, we’d be stuck with radical militant not-pretty-in-pink Pelosi. So we can’t impeach because the price is too high. Bill Jonke April 29, 2007 at 1:49 pm Would be a welcome change, regardless. Bill Jonke caseycm2007 July 29, 2007 at 4:46 pm Nancy Pelosi a “radical militant?” You mean like Che Guevara? or Bobby Seal? or a young Castro? One can only dream. bjiller May 1, 2007 at 11:33 am Impeaching Bush without impeaching Cheney would change nothing. Impeach both, and you get Madame Speaker as the President. AustinRanter May 2, 2007 at 12:37 am I think that I would like to see a show of votes by only those who are of a conservative and or republican persausion. Comments are closed.
