  Mood:USA not worth saving

And so it was that the great council which the high and mighty Bush appointed, told him exactly what he didn't want to hear. And he roundly rejected their wise recommendations, and stayed the course - as always. Then he and his croneys began preparing a PR strategy to try and convince us, again, that we need to be in Iraq. (Well, it worked the first time, didn't it??)

So take this to the bank: As long as Dubya sits in the White House, our soldiers will never return from Iraq. Bush has been absolutely, totally consistant on this point for almost five years now, since 2002. We will be in Iraq until the end of time, if that's what it takes to occupy and slaughter them into a Democracy. (Never MIND that there's absolutely no reason at all for us to have gone there in the first place...)

You have a choice, folks. But since America is the land of cowards and weasels, I already know which one you're going to choose. So here it is: Impeach Bush, or continue to watch your soldiers die for no reason.

Edit: Also, remember that you should never listen to your soldiers. Dubya's idea of how the war is going is the ONLY one that matters - those soldiers who are actually out there on the front lines don't know squat.

His name happened to be Abraham Lincoln.

But James Polk was never impeached.

So you see, the American people have loved and adored war-mongers for a very, very long time...

There is no hope for impeachment.
That female black representative that was in a tiff with capitol hill police? (can't remember her name) She's on her way out. But on her way she introduced legislation to impeach Bush for failing to uphold his oath of office. It was roundly rejected.

A quick google search reminds me it was Rep. McKinney. Here's the CNN article on the impeachment legislation :

This is the most telling passage : "The legislation has no chance of passing and serves as a symbolic parting shot not only at Bush but also at Democratic leaders. Incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, has made clear that she will not entertain proposals to sanction Bush and has warned the liberal wing of her party against making political hay of impeachment."
