Impeachment


Helena Independent Record (MT)
Letters to the Editor

By a margin of 50 percent to 44 percent, Americans want Congress to consider impeaching President Bush if he lied about the war in Iraq, according to a new poll commissioned by AfterDowningStreet.org, a grassroots coalition that supports a Congressional investigation of President Bush’s decision to invade Iraq in 2003.

In this space, I called for Bush’s impeachment shortly after the Downing Street Memo was published by a UK newspaper. I’m not surprised that 50 percent of America now considers impeachment a possibility. I’m astounded that 44 percent don’t want Congress to consider impeachment.

We used to be a nation of laws. As recently as seven or eight years ago many of us got all lathered up because a President named Clinton lied in court about having sex with an intern. Now 44 percent of us seem willing to stand by the President even if he lied about his reasons for invading Iraq. Someone please explain it to me. When you do, please don’t sing the fighting-them-over-there song.

That position is even worse than support of a President who lied to Congress to invade Iraq.

Bush has done nothing but lie before he even was president(He stole the
presidency twice along with his brother Jeb Bush in Florida. Also the supreme courts are guilty also.
We can not let this Mier get into office, she is another crony of Bush and Cheny.
If we don't get this impeachment done "SOON" his whole motive is to take
over the country. He and his cronies are making the RICH RICHER AND THE
POOR POORER.
Also the Social Security he wants is another we can not let this go through.
Sincerely
W.Yonkof
