Wha???

"Any president who says, I don't care, or I will not respond to what the people of this country are saying about Iraq or anything else, or I don't care what the Congress does, I am going to proceed -- if a president really believes that, then there are -- what I was pointing out, there are ways to deal with that. He's not accountable anymore, which isn't totally true. You can impeach him, and before this is over, you might see calls for his impeachment."

- Senator Chuck Hagel, (R)-Nebraska (That's right, folks. Republican.)





I have said it before and I will say it again: Impeachment is off the table.”



- Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, (D)-California





Maybe it's time to put it back on the table, Nancy. If you don't want to do this job, step down and let someone else do it for you.

For some reason I feel one is channeling the wolf and the other the sheep. Which is which is rather obvious. The sheep should step aside and let the wolf get on with the business of "liberating" this country from a dictator(s).

interesting picture of nancy -- and to be perfectly honest

i doubt they will make an example of baby bush...

in fact if i were a see-er, i would fortell that they are waiting until the dem's take over the hwite house, congress etc -- and then stop the war -- that will send this country into a horrible recession -- we need to convert war jobs into peace jobs -- NOW!!!

I just can't figure out why when the President and VP are obviously conducting government in a criminal way, why is it not impeach time. Any other criminal would be tracked down and brought before the courts. Why not these two?

I hear you on this one...let's see Hagel start the ball rolling on the impeachment front.

If only we could find a Bush Sex scandle...I think Pelosi might be one lead :)

*I* think they ARE working towards it, but in a precise, calculted way from the bottom up. The power of subpeona is being used in a step-by-step manner to acheive this end.

Time will tell if I am correct. . .

I have started to wonder what it is Chimpy is holding in reserve on some of our esteemed dem leaders.

Don't think there's a sex scandal in there...who'd have him? Who'd be that desperate? Oh I forgot! Condi and Harriet are hot for him...maybe a threesome.

At this point, I'd be happy to see a sex scandal between Bush and Hagel.

I'm so very glad to finally be able to reach your weblog. For the longest time I have used my link and gotten one of those b.s. "this page doesn't exist" messages or whatever. I will go make sure my link is actually working.

You are right on, PT, and you have taken it a step further than I did at my place when you ask perhaps the most pertinent question of all... why is it it that it's the Republican who has the cojones re. impeachment, and not the Democrats?

I don't like many of Hagel's policies, but when I hear a REPUBLICAN war veteran of his stature and foreign policy experience talking about how our president is violating our Constitution, and how Bush is impeachable... I get... well... inspired.

Pelosi, on the other hand, has policies with which I agree, but I am about as enthused for her as House Speaker as I was with Kerry as the Democratic nominee in 2004: not very.

As time goes on, this is how it seems to be working for me: when it is the Constitution and our American way of government/life at stake, I find that I will tend to support whoever seems to be standing up for what is most important. If someone stands down and is unwilling to defend our Constitution from abuse, I tend to find them somewhat worthless, just kind of blowing in the wind.

If Nancy really cares, she will lick her finger, then hold it up to find out which way the wind is really blowing. And I definitely agree that she needs to either fish or cut bait.

It is time to start e-mailing the DNC and other prominent Democrat groups about this, in an angry manner.

Also, the link to your blog now DOES work at my place. It was a simple matter of there being too many backslashes for it to work properly!

I think bu$hco has something on Pelosi or they threatened to kill one of her grandkids or something.

I am very proud of Hagel. Now, if only they can get the votes to override the inevitable veto from the Chimperor.

I not only wanna see him impeached, I want him flogged and kicked in the nads on national TV!

I agree with john, I think they are doing it one piece at a time. I hope that's the plan.

Impeach Nancy

Donnie, that WOULD be special. If it was on pay-per-view I would cough up the dough to watch, probably several times over.

The bastard vowed to uphold the Constitution each time he took his Oath of Office, and instead he breaks the law and violates that document. Bush is a criminal, and his administration is comprised of criminals. He is VERY impeachable, and I am glad that someone, regardless of their political party, has the balls to bring up such a necessary subject.

Do people who enlist in our military do so in order to serve the man or to serve the country? I believe most of them enlist for the latter reason, but I find it amazing how many of them think (as Bush and his cronies do) that it's actually o.k. to tweak our Constitution to allow warrantless wiretaps, for Bush to try and concentrate power in the executive branch (again unconstitutional), that he knowingly used faulty intelligence in the run-up to war and therefore LIED to America? Yet so many of them mindlessly adore him because he is the "commander in chief".

Now I do know that in military culture there is little if any room for questioning of authority, and that orders must be followed... and by necessity, it is a black-or-white world... but have you ever seen "The Caine Mutiny"? I have to think there may be a genuine Captain Queeg moment, coming to our military in the near future. I love and respect our military. I detest the manner in which it is being used by our Chickenhawk-In-Chief. He dishonors our country and all the troops every day he remains in office. The military higher-ups have to know that Bush is a loon, and there have to be contingency plans for use in case he tries something really, really dumb (like engaging Iran militarily).

When Howard Dean recently said something like "Don't worry, there will be a new president soon" I was really hoping he wasn't having an Iowa war-whoop moment... and that maybe he is privy to some information the rest of us aren't.
