52% SUPPORT IMPEACHMENT

The Republicans screamed for the impeachment of Pres. Clinton when they found out he lied about getting a hummer. Most of the public couldn't have cared less.

Bush has lied to Congress to get us into a war...which is treason an impeachable offense...but now he has added illegal wiretapping to it. And Congress sits on it's collective dead ass. Meanwhile, the public thinks impeachment is the right thing to do.

From our friends at Buzz Flash:

American public supports impeaching Bush for wiretapping us illegally

"By a margin of 52% to 43%, Americans want Congress to consider impeaching President Bush if he wiretapped American citizens without a judge's approval, 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.

The poll was conducted by Zogby International, the highly-regarded non-partisan polling company. The poll interviewed 1,216 U.S. adults from January 9-12.

The poll found that 52% agreed with the statement:

"If President Bush wiretapped American citizens without the approval of a judge, do you agree or disagree that Congress should consider holding him accountable through impeachment."

43% disagreed, and 6% said they didn't know or declined to answer. The poll has a +/- 2.9% margin of error."

...and...

"Responses to the Zogby poll varied by political party affiliation: 66% of Democrats favored impeachment, as did 59% of Independents, but only 23% of Republicans. By ideology, impeachment was supported by Progressives (90%), Libertarians (71%), Liberals (65%), and Moderates (58%), but not by Conservatives (33%) or Very Conservatives (28%)."


The whole post is worth the read.

The public has spoken!

Funny, Faux News keeps citing polls that say the American public loves Bush wiretaps 'cause they keep us safe. When his news channel marches in lockstep saying the opposite of polls like Zogby you know the admin. is running scared. Of course, with Alito on the court, Bush will always be safe, but let the preceedings begin!

Might as well shovel shit against the tide for all the good it does. I still think a short rope and a long drop for a buncha those bastards would do us more good. After a fair trial, of course. Then we could do lunch.

Karena,
Remember "Baghdad Bob"? Faux News sounds alot like him...always the bullshit and lies right to the very end.

Gordon,
Just three questions:
1)New rope or old?
2)Trees or lampposts?
3)Where for lunch? A nice thick steak and tequila shooters sounds good to me.
