That was a good article and the comments were good too. There was one line in the comments - "If I did not love my country, I would not loathe George W. Bush."- Lynx.
This is how he ends the article-
Since the president has clearly broken the law in the case of the National Security Agency spying he ordered up, and since he has clearly abused his power and violated his oath of office with his signing statements, there is really no need for prolonged hearings. An impeachment panel could quickly vote out articles of impeachment on these two issues and send them to the full house for a vote. Were they to do this, I suspect they would find at least some honorable and patriotic Republicans voting with them. At that point the issue could go to the Senate for trial. Meanwhile, the impeachment panel could continue with hearings into Bush's other crimes and misadventures--the lying about the Iraq War, the torture authorization, the violation of habeas corpus, the cover-up of the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame, the lies to and obstruction of the 9-11 Commission, the abandonment of New Orleans to its fate during and after Hurricane Katrina, the war profiteering in Iraq, etc., etc.
The first step, however, is to acknowledge that the president has lost his mind and has become a dangerous psychopath.
What we've got here is failure to stop a Socio/psychopath. Some men you just can't reach, so you get what we had here, this presidency, which is the way HE wants it. Well HE's got it. And I dont like it any more than you humans! (Apologies to the Captain and Luke for spoiling their lines)
Codependants and enablers of this disease always rise, like the proverbial scum that politics always stirs to the top. The good cream in this case is always too busy cleaning up the mess left by the evil scum in it's relentless pursuit of its Manichean ideals. Good and evil have got to be nurtured properly so good can appear evil and evil good!
Thus we have the government we get- An amoral vacuuous parasitic sickness that feeds itself off its own self gratifying affluence/effluence, never allowing the true nature of freedom and equality to rise up from the cauldron that is the people- The brewing pot from where the cream should rise.
