Should impeachment be back on the table in Congress?

With the finalized Phase II report by the Senate Intelligence Committee now complete, we have verification of what we already knew - that George Bush and D!ck Cheney and company used intelligence they knew to be either questionable or false to push their agenda of attacking Iraq. This includes ignoring or denying evidence that opposed their claims and presenting evidence that didn't exist (aka LYING) in order to gain approval for Bush's desire to go after Saddam Hussein. Nancy Pelosi immediately took the option for impeachment off the table once the Democrats achieved Congressional majority. I think it's time for us to demand that our elected officials do the job for which they were elected! We need to let Congress know that crimes of aggression should be prosecuted, not merely set aside as an inconvenience. We need to contact our elected officials and tell them to pursue impeachment with the same level of enthusiasm they used to get elected - and remind them that their re-election may depend on it! What historical legacy are we leaving our children and grandchildren? How do we explain to them that we took no action while this man lied to us and sent us to invade a country who hadn't attacked us while pulling Special Ops out from where the attackers originated without finding their leader? With the nomination of Mr. Obama, we have proven that we CAN stand up and demand change - that we CAN stand and make ourselves heard. This is our chance to continue that momentum, to not fall back into complacency, and to see justice done!! Can you do it? Will you? Please go to this site and sign a petition that calls for impeachment that will be sent to your Congressmen and Senators: http://www.democrats.com Please go to this site and tell Nancy Pelosi that impeachment belongs BACK on the table:http://speaker.house.gov/contact/ And, finally, please go to this site and add your name to those who are supporting the referendum to impeach George W. Bush. If you would rather not do all three, that's OK. The first two are important: http://www.votetoimpeach.org If our efforts don't succeed, you can tell your children and grandchildren that it wasn't because you didn't try!

Why thank you! You do know that I'm 53, right? So that would make you......70 or so?

LMAO! I'm sorry. It sounded like something a youngster would post. It must have been the girl in your name that threw me. lol I'm 51 and I guess I'm just apathetic. The guy is in his last few months in office. Why waste the money on trying to impeach him? He's going down in history as the worst president ever.

Is there even enough time left to impeach him? Congressmen are going to be in campaign mode for the next few months trying to hold on to their seats. Bush and Co. should suffer some penalty, but if it happens I doubt it's going to happen during the time he has left.

The have to impeach him because republicans impeached Clinton. They've been out for vengeance for a decade now and this is their chance. They don't care how many tax dollars it costs and they don't care if his term is over before the hearing ends. It's vengeance they want. Democrats b!itced and moaned about money "wasted" impeaching Clinton but now you want to waste money impeaching a man who will be out of office in a few months. Nice job! I love hypocrisy.

Annie, A lie, is a lie, is a lie, is a lie, is a lie!!! And the lie part is NOT why he was impeached! He abused his power every time Monica's head bobbed up and down under his oval office desk!

Annie, You have your opinion and I have mine. I would never try to purposely run you down or attack you because of that! Now attack Obama or Clinton; that's a different story!

Yeah, I'd say the three of us are good at attacking issues without attacking each other personally. I wish everyone could be so civil when disagreeing so heavily.
