Impeachment Update

Kevin Zeese says it's time for citizens to insist Bush obey the law. It's not like there isn't a lot of wide-spread support for the idea:
According to a January 2006 poll by Zogby, 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... In an earlier poll, by a margin of 53% to 42%, Americans want Congress to impeach President BUSH if he lied about IRAQ WAR, according to a November 2005 poll by Zogby polling... An earlier poll conducted by Ipsos in October 2005 found that by a margin of 50% to 44%, Americans want Congress to consider impeaching PRESIDENT BUSH if he lied about the WAR IN IRAQ.
And just to dispell the old furphy that impeaching Bush will bring Cheney to power:
Article II, Section 4 of the United States Constitution states: “ THE PRESIDENT, VICE PRESIDENT, and all civil officers of the United States shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”
Impeaching Bush means bringing down Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, Card, the whole damn lot of them. If Congress won't act to throw out the President and his cronies, then the people must act to throw out the Congress:
It is time for Congress to act, to take responsibility, to reassert its role as an equal branch of government. If the majority in Congress will not make the President and Vice President obey the law – act within the law – then the minority must stand above them and show the legislatures role as co-conspirators in undermining U.S. laws. The issue of whether the President and Vice President are above the law or subject to the law should become the central issue in the 2006 campaign. If it does the people will re-assert their preference for a government of laws, of checks and balances and of three equal branches of government.
Your time is coming, folks. Don't let them steal another election.
