is that we're ready to give carte blanche to those who agree with us.

50% of independent voters favor impeachment of Bush while 30% oppose, and 51% of independent voters favor impeachment of Cheney while 29% oppose! If Dems want the independent vote, they'd better get their tails out from between their legs and start impeaching!

Pelosi and Emmanual keep thinking they can win the '08 election, but they can't do it without the independent vote. Show them this poll--it shows the way to get that vote. Then tell them to fire their consultants.

Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are doing a great disservice to the Democrats and the Country. Congressional leaders need to attack Bush and Cheyney and end the war. End the war now! Stop the bankrupting of America.

Energy is a real crisis! It has affected the price of food and all other basic needs. $5.00 for a gallon of milk because of transportation costs is unconscionable and it has happened on the Democrats' watch.

Support the closing of our borders and deportation of the illegal aliens. Don't Democratic leaders watch Lou Dobbs? Democrats and independants vote, not illegal immigrants.

I've worked for 40 years in campaigns for Democrats. I have never been so dissolutioned with the direction of the party. The Democratic leadership is still out of touch with its base.

It is now time to act. You were voted into office to get rid of this idiots...start the proceedings now. Impeach both Bush and our democracy. Who benefitts from you waiting????

Mr. Cheney has lied to the American public about the reasons for the Iraq war causing a catastrophe in the Middle East. He continue to stubbornly pursue an aggressive policy of destruction in that area. He even wants to spread the war to other countries. We are in a quagmire in that area of the world costing hundreds of thousands of lives and trillions of dollars. His repeated lies have caused unwarranted fear in the public and have led to a devaluation of the Bill of Rights. It is obvious that he is pursuing the agenda of big oil and not the agenda of the country. His actions are leading us ever closer to fascism. He continues to weaken our precious democracy especially the Bill of Rights. Remove him now before he does even more damage. The American people will cheer the legislative branch and your approval rating will soar.

She came on strong, gave us hope, then put her tail between her legs and CAVED.. I am ashamed of her and the Democrats... PLease someone give us some hope. I write, I sign, I vote, all of my children and family vote, my 97 yr old grandma never missed a vote.. Do our voices mean nothing? How can the demon in the white house get away with such abuses, does someone have the courage to stand up to that regime? Our founding fathers bones must be rattling, you are disgracing them.

Perhaps Congress thought it was a victory when they gained the majority. Tell them the work was only beginning. I have a suspicion that they are doing some back slapping intead of making changes. I full-heartedly support impeachment of Cheney. He is diabolical and fearful of anyone who doesn't look and think like him. Away with them! go John Edwards and Why isn't Joe Biden getting much air time? What's up? Hillary is just more of the same old Washington as usual bullcrap.

He’ll probably resign soon anyway. Bush is the one who deserves impeachment. Get him the hell out of there before he does any more damage.

No domestic terror attacks since 9-11.
He must be doing something right.

You are a right wing idiot war monger. 9-11 happened on Bush's watch...must have been "doing something wrong" to let that happen...if you want credit now, he gets the blame for back are also spineless for using Anonymous..

You must be still asleep! Watch "Freedom to Fascism," or "Zeitgeist," and then tell me you still think that! Not possible! Get off your butt and do the research yourself!! Never trust the mainstream media(specially America's)

Bring Cheney up on charges of Terrorism. Charges: Terrorizing our country, our U.S. Constitution including our Bill of Rights, and our environment.

By the administration's (Cheney's) own device(s), the Patriot Act and other such acts regarding terrorism (and torture), anyone being brought up on terrorist charges has no right to habeus corpus, and would be sent immediately to Guantanamo.

This would bypass the entire impeachment process thereby avoiding the entire judicial process (and expense to the American people).


I agree, send him straight to Guantanamo without any legal representation or rights! It would serve him right....

I agree that Cheney should be impeached, but the articles now put forward, effectively that he lied, just does not do it. Much more damming are the recent articles by Gellman and Becker in the Washington Post, which include abrogating the Geneva conventions. This should be the focus, not on the run-up of the Iraq and future Iran war.
I've advocated something of this nature since I began writing on this site, and it will probably have to be something like the expression "duct tape and handcuffs" to get this job done, as I don't think Bushfraud or Cheney would yield to U.S. Marshall's or sargeants at arms, etc., as is evidenced by the already list of ignored and uncomplied with subpoenas.

This leaves something in the realm of military force in which case the high and above the law-mighty G.O.P.'s will cry foul and military coup. I could care less what they call removal of a bunch of lawbreakers holding the highest offices in the land illegally.
These bums are causing a breakdown right now of law and order in the streets of America. Just hours or days ago , another veteran law officer, considered by many to be a good samaritan, was gunned down and killed by a motorist and they had four shootings in the streets of Denver, Co. just as 4th approached in less than 24 hours!! Not to mention all the other shootings breaking out all over the country.People become desperate when they lose hope and this regime robs the people of hope.

I've said before that the high execs are supposed to be role models and most of the U.S. and world know them now as bums, crooks.joe martin,

"The President of the United States has the unrestrained Power of granting Pardons for Treason; which may be sometimes exercised to screen from punishment those whom he had secretly instigated to commit the Crime, & thereby prevent a Discovery of his own Guilt."
George Mason (1725-1792)

Abuse of power... Absolute corruption, corrupts absolutely.

It is time to become the patriotic citizens and make our Congressional Representatives become the patriotic servants to the citizens they claim to be. Hold up our American Principles and have them examine it for themselves. And let them know that IF they insist to make the 2008 elections the goal, then accept their offer; That the elections of 2008 will be a Congressional Performance Review and that you will not (re)elect those, who show capabilities at failing to uphold their Oath of Office by a failure to defend the Constitution and We the People, which it serves.

What good is a censure to these sorts of crimes Bush commits?

If Wexler said, "Bush's intervention is an unconscionable abuse of authority by George W. Bush, and Congress must step forward and express the disgust that Americans rightfully feel toward this contemptible decision," deserves censure what then, IS impeachable? Where IS this threshold?

An unconscionable abuse of Constitutional Powers (observable in myriad forms) and contempt for Congress (signing statements, felonious (mis)statements, etc.) and the Judicial system (ummm...politicizing) ranks higher than a simple censure, IMO. But that's just me.

So I have to ask:

Is torture the new American Principle?
Is waging wars of aggression, the new American Principle?
Is warrentless wiretapping Americans, the new American Principle?
Is withholding Birth Rights; Habeas Corpus, a new American Principle?
What part of any of this, IS an American Principle?
So why is any of it acceptable as being principled?

What is the Fourth of July to those whose Liberty is denied?

It's great to see the look on ppls faces when they see my Impeach Bush /Cheney Buttons - several on my hat and one over my heart TILL it Happens! We are fighting our Founding Fathers worst nightmare !

DonP Let us review these numbers another way. 46 per cent of Americans disagree with impeachment of Cheney.54 per cent are opposed to impeachment of the President. Only 50 percent of the Independednts favor impeachment. Unless these numbers can be radically changed, preferably by education of the masses, nothing will ever be done. If you had 90 per cent screaming for impeachment, Congress would still worry about losing the votes of the 10 per cent. Such is political courage in todays America.

Clinton never would have been impeached. There is more to it than that.

There is far more support for Bush/Cheney being impeached than there ever was for Clinton's impeachment.

Rick Santorum said yesterday: "between now and November, a lot of things are going to happen, and I believe that by this time next year, the American public’s going to have a very different view of this war, and it will be because, I think, of some unfortunate events, that like we’re seeing unfold in the UK."

Why can't "we the People" start a website poll and simply let EVERYONE vote yes or no.
Something along the line...We the people....have decided to (electronically) impeach G.W. Bush and Dick Cheney....
vote yes or no.
If I could do this on my own, I would but I do not have the skill to do this.

Follow the money trail to the VP's front door via Arms sales, Oil profits, General Collusion and using George Bush's burnt out Drug and Alcohol induced lack of thought process as the fall guy. Just like Judis the president traded the Honor and Respect of the United States for a few million dollars and Countless lives of Brave men on both sides of this illegal Occupation of a foreign Nation.
What did Our Founding Fathers do to the Invading British that tried the same thing all those years ago? Names, dates and locations have changed, no doubt the End Results Will be the same for Our Beloved United States as it was for the Brits.

Driven by Greed and a lack of manhood, the cowardly vice president is nothing but a Punk thug in a suit. He thinks himself Above Reproach, the Law and Accountability for Crimes against the United States and World Citizens.
Every time someone has a clue that foul mouth, using Fear and False Patriotism, half man, no balls, Dickless Cheney,he cries and calls them Unpatriotic or Subversives? What a load of Cowardly double speak. That Punk is not even a Veteran.

He is an Awful representation of Humanity and of Leadership. Can you tell I think him a Coward and Thief of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Freedom to all on this Planet? All for his and his Cronies Personal Profits?

Bad enough Jeb Bush was in on it too from the Beginning in the half counted votes in Florida.

The Sad part of all this Evil the current administration has inflicted on this Once Great Nation and the World, NOTHING will happen to him and his kind.

Impeach cheney for providing false information on terrorism, a felony violation of the USA Patriot Act.
August 9, 2008 by patriotact
Dick Cheney is being accused by Wolf Blitzer of felony violations of the USA Patriot Act for providing false information on terrorism, a felony violation of the USA Patriot Act. Cheney is being accused of forging false information on terrorism and knowingly providing false information on terrorism.

If documents and statements were prepared that were to be used to promote the idea that Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda were connected to one another and were both connected to 911 then that is knowingly providing false information on terrorism and is indeed conspiracy to provide false information on terrorism.

If Dick Cheney forged documents in collusion with the CIA to knowngly provide false information on terrorism connecting Saddam Hussein with Al Qaeda and 911 then that is a serious and egregious felony violation of the USA Patriot Act.

My mouth agape, I pant, unwilling to accept this at first. My big juicy apple, and it is so bitter, so filled with worms and maggots. But I am so hungry.

If Dick Cheney forged documents on white house stationary that provided fasle information on terrorism then Dick Cheney is guilty of an extremely serious and egregious felony violation of the USA Patriot Act. The only remedy for felony violation of the USA Patriot Act by the CIA and Dick Cheney acting in collusion is the swift impeachment of Dick Cheney.

The documents of treason written on the revered stationary of your founding father’s nation, how sad can this be? I feel so old.

There are many felony violations of the USA Patriot Act to observe in the conspiratoral collusion of the CIA and Dick Cheney in felony violation of the USA Patriot Act. A rare treat in jurisprudence, very few felony violations of the USA Patriot Act are so egregious and serious than Dick Cheney’s felony violation of the USA Patriot Act by providing false information on terrorism in forged documents.

Articles of Impeachment based solely on felony violations of the USA Patriot Act must be written and executed by the republicans and submitted to Nancy Pelosi.

It is unAmerican to allow Dick Cheney to provide false information on terrorism and violate the felony provisions of the USA Patriot Act.

We must impeach Dick Cheney with accusation of crime, felony violation of the USA Patriot Act, so as to cause the impeachment of Dick Cheney.
