First, we have a President who without conscience uses the tragedy of 9/11 to promote political gain, and to foster support for his war in Iraq.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ Despicable enough, but not enough for a call to impeach.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ A good reason not to have voted to re-elect him, if more people would have paid attention.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ We have a President who appoints according to crucial posts cronies like FEMA Brownie.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ Again, a show of bad judgment, but not criminal.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ A President who time and time again shows a preference for Corporate America over American People.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ Calls for impeachment have been swelling up from the political underground for some time, but they didn’t get the attention of the mainstream.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ Until recently, that is.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½
First, he claimed to be agreeing to the prohibitions on torture in a compromise with Arizona Senator John McCain.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ The President then declared his so-called “signing statement” which essentially says that he intends to ignore the amendment on the grounds of Presidential authority.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ More voices of opposition rising up.
Secondly,Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½by his own admission, the President has been secretly authorizing the wiretapping of thousands of Americans.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ Patently illegal.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ He claims it is required because of “national security.”Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ Even though there was already a mechanism for wiretapping terror suspects and keeping it secret, this President feels that it involves too much paperwork.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ Or worse, he doesn’t want any oversight of what he is doing.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ Again, more voices calling for an accounting to be made.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½
And the latest slap in the face of lady liberty, we find out the President and his supporters have an attachment to the Patriot ActÃ?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½
that allows for the Secret Service to have expanded powers when it comes to arresting and detaining so-called “disruptors.”Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ -He already pre-screens his appearances so that they are a joke.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ There is no place for dissent or protest when Dubya is working the room.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ It reminds me of the old film of the Soviet Politburo meetings, when everyone applauded until signaled to stop.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ And then there were more.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ Voices of dissent, that is.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½
And now, finally, it appears that a majority of Americans are sensing that it might be time to consider getting rid of the worst President that I can think of.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ Two different Zogby polls over the past couple of months have shown a majority of Americans would favor Congress beginning impeachment proceedings on two different questions.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ If the President lied about the reasons for going to war in Iraq, 53% of Americans were in favor of impeachment consideration.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ And in a poll conducted Jan. 9th-12th, 52% said they would favor impeachment if the President wiretapped Americans illegally.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ The evidence is looking more and more incriminating, suggesting he did both.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½ So, Mr. President, it’s time to pay the fiddler, to reap what you have sown.Ã?Â¯Ã?Â¿Ã?Â½
