There have been two presidents who were investigated and found to have been guilty of impeachable offenses in my lifetime...Nixon and Clinton. Nixon resigned and we all know what happened as a result of Clinton's investigation. The Bush admin has ADMITTED to more impeachable offenses than investigations revealed
about the other two presidents. Why the Democrats in Congress won't pursue impeachment of Bush and Cheney is beyond my understanding. At times, I can rationalize it, wishful thinking that their strategy is to wait it out and hope that the low approval ratings of all things Bushco will give them both the White House and more control of the House and the Senate in 2008. Well, that's all just fine and dandy, but in the meantime, Bush continues to give himself more and more power, almost insuring that, if he doesn't choose to leave office in January, 2009, he just won't have to. In my opinion, the future of this country rests on whether or not impeachment proceedings are begun.
Cindy Sheehan has been arrested in DC, calling for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney.....

WASHINGTON -- Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan was arrested Monday at the Capitol for disorderly conduct, shortly after saying she would run against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over the California Democrat's refusal to try to impeach President Bush.
Sheehan was taken into custody inside Rep. John Conyers' office, where she had spent an hour imploring him to launch impeachment proceedings against Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. Conyers, D-Mich., chairs the House Judiciary Committee, where any impeachment effort would have to begin.
''The Democrats will not hold this administration accountable, so we have to hold the Democrats accountable,'' Sheehan said outside of Conyers' office after the meeting. ''And I for one am going to step up to the plate and run against Nancy Pelosi.''
''Impeachment is not a fringe movement, it is mandated in our Constitution. Nancy Pelosi had no authority to take it off the table,'' Sheehan told her group of orange-clad activists before they began their march from the national cemetery.
At least Cindy Sheehan is trying to do something about this president and putting herself in lots of jeapordy to do it. However, I don't know why she doesn't use RECALL OF PELOSI
as one of her talking points. She just says she's going to "run against Pelosi."
Pelosi sounds awfully lame and weak making statements like this, from Crimson's link:
The speaker said she had "no hesitation" criticizing the president about his handling of the war, but said there were more important priorities for lawmakers -- such as health care and creating jobs -- than the divisive pursuit of impeachment.
She sounds almost as stupidly stubborn and "stick to the course" as Bush does!
Health care and creating jobs? Those things won't matter to Americans once Bush declares martial law and makes himself officially the Dictator of the US!
I'm also beginning to think that Pelosi is a prima donna who wanted to be the first female Speaker and, now that she's accomplished that, to hell with those who voted her to that position because
they wanted her and her fellow Democrats to do something about Bushco before it's too late to do anything at all.
California needs to recall Pelosi. AND whatever happened to the doctor-lawyer who is the Chairman of the Democratic Party....Oh yes, Howard Dean!
