MSNBC POLL: Impeach Bush?


MSNBC did a live poll:

Do you believe President Bush's actions justify impeachment? * 332234 responses
Yes, between the secret spying, the deceptions leading to war and more, there is plenty to justify putting him on trial.
87%
No, like any president, he has made a few missteps, but nothing approaching "high crimes and misdemeanors."
4.4%
No, the man has done absolutely nothing wrong. Impeachment would just be a political lynching.
7%
I don't know.
1.8%

Americans really want a change.

Well, it only takes a moment to help convince Nancy Pelosi to Impeach Bush/Cheney..

Pelosi most likely said impeachment was "off the table" to remove any appearance of conflict-of-interest that would arise if she were thrust into the presidency as a result of the coming impeachment.

What we need to do is to pressure Pelosi not to interfere with impeachment maneuverings within her party. Sending her Do-It-Yourself impeachments legitimizes her when she joins the impeachment movement in the future.

Sacks and sacks of mail are about to arrive in Nancy Pelosi's office initiating impeachment via the House of Representative's own rules. This legal document is as binding as if a State or if the House itself passed the impeachment resolution (H.R. 635). There's a little known and rarely used clause of the "Jefferson Manual" in the rules for the House of Representatives which sets forth the various ways in which a president can be impeached. Only the House Judiciary Committee puts together the Articles of Impeachment, but before that happens, someone has to initiate the process.That's where we come in. In addition to a House Resolution (635), or the State-by-State method, one of the ways to get impeachment going is for individual citizens like you and me to submit a memorial. ImpeachforPeace.org has created a new memorial based on one which was successful in impeaching a federal official in the past. You can find it on their website as a PDF.

You can initiate the impeachment process and simultaneously help to convince Pelosi to follow through with the process. Do-It-Yourself by downloading the memorial, filling in the relevant information (your name, state, etc.), and sending it in. Be a part of history.

The reality is that with Conyers and Waxman about to take over two very prominent Chairmanships that will lead to the needed subpoenas there will eventually come a time where they will have to decide if impeachment is the means or the way.

For now the the possibility still remains a tool in our arsenal to pressure the White House (The means)... Time and testimony under oath will tell us if impeachment is the way.

Pelosi saying it is off the table is all posturing, and I am certain that her tone and position will change as evidence dictates.

I have always looked at impeachment as a reasonable option given the circumstances... But I still look at it as just another tool.

And so we must wait and see how this all plays out.

BTW: Thank you for that useful link!
