Articles of Impeachment against GW Bush

Some latecomers to the "Impeach Bush" game have posted their Articles of Impeachment against Bush and Cheney. I called for their impeachment, Proposal: Impeachment, G.W. Bush, several years ago.

"Americans Can't Handle Another Impeachment" Is Republican Propaganda. Don't Be Deceived. is a long analysis of some debate happening among the talking heads. Apparently Republican spinmeisters are claiming "Americans Can't Handle Another Impeachment" as if we are babies needing to be coddled. Hmmmph. This Smirking Chimp story goes to great length to explain how we really are adult enough to see a second impeachment to the end.

Do-It-Yourself Impeachment. Seriously is instructions that an individual citizen can use to initiate impeachment proceedings. Seriously.

Impeachment Call Echoes Near Independence Hall an expert on Impeachment, who was one of the drafters of Impeachment proceedings against Richard Nixon, makes her call for Impeachment from the center of Philadelphia. She also appeared on Democracy Now: Fmr. NY Congressmember Holtzman Calls For President Bush and His Senior Staff To Be Held Accountable for Abu Ghraib Torture

Why Impeachment, Sadly, Is a Non-Starter while supporting impeachment, makes an interesting argument against it. In the Democracy Now interview mentioned above Ms. Holtzman said it would be hard to make a case for Impeachment of Cheney. he has no paper trail, because it's Bush who signed everything. So if we impeach Bush we get Cheney, so that may be Bush's ultimate protector, the unpalatableness of Cheney. Also there's the time consideration, unless they get right on it the impeachment would be likely occuring during the election year, 2008, and be seen as an election ploy rather than a real impeachment. Hmmm?

Impeachment 'Off the Table,' Conyers Says Conyers, who has been itching for a few years to Impeach Bush, now doesn't want to do it. Hmm... Conyers said, "To be sure, I have substantial concerns about the way this administration has abused its authority, but impeachment would not be good for the American people. The country does not want or need any more paralyzed partisan government -- it wants a check and balance and real progress on the issues that matter to their lives."
