but why? (3.00 / 4)
he lied. he spied. and now the cry is to impeach him. but why?
he started a war that has killed tens of thousands for what reason again? and not a single democratic politician said "impeachment"!
and now impeach for this?
mass murder: business as usual.
lying and spying: OH MY GOD! IMPEACH HIM!

As long as our military are killing non-Americans, the majority of us don't really care... The average American isn't taught such a brotherhood and doesn't feel it either.
As long as our military are drawn from the more disadvantaged portions of our society, the average American, holding himself to be better than uniformed grunts, doesn't care how many die..
But every American has something he or she would just as soon others didn't know about...
To the average American.. contemplating other Americans snooping through his trash, listening on the phone, peeking at his extramarital affairs and tax-liability lies, is ready to throw the bums into the harbor alongside the overtaxed tea.

My calculation was purely political (none / 1)
in spite of all the offenses Bush has committed, and they are many, there is a limited range of things that are teh legitimate subjects of an impeachment proceeding.
Impeachment cannot be carried forward credibly on the basis of differences of opinion regarding policy, no matter how much you dislike the policy.
But impeachment can be carried forward on the basis that the President broke the law and flouted the protections of the Constitution.
With a Republican Congress, impeachment was idle talk for the most part, posturing. But now, with blatant disregard for the law and the Constitution, circumstances are changing and even many Republicans are finding pause. Now it may be a credible thing to dicuss. Before it really wasn't.
