I asked the same questions then spent most of
today trying to figure it out (I have a lot of time
on my hands lately). It seemed to me that with
less than 7 months left of his presidency,
it would be pointless to try and impeach Bush.
But as I read, it became more clear. From this
point forward, all talk of impeachment has to go
on the record ( this is the third time articles
of impeachment have been read against GWB).
I doubt anyone alive today will forget what a
trainwreck the last eight years have been, but future
generations ought to know - with unblinking clarity
- what his lying, criminal administration did.
After the articles are read, any member of Congress
can add their two cents,
then it goes to Ms. "Impeachment-is-off-the-table"
to sit in her IN-BOX and die.
Should it by some miracle get past Pelosi, it
is required that every member vote yea or nay
on the indictment. That goes on the Congressional
Record. If enough yea votes are gathered,
the articles then go onto the Senate which votes
whether or not to impeach. Yes, that would
mean everyone has to go on record - for giving
the Bush Administration a pass.
I wouldn't go so far as to say it will be successful,
but it does send a clear message, hopefully to
the nation and to the world that some of our
leaders were paying attention and at least at some point,
decided to no longer rubber-stamp the Bush-Co
I'm not sure there IS a point here, save Kucinich
possibly storing future political ammunition,
or it could simply be a way to point out that
impeachment proceedings are meant to do more
than punish a sitting president for lying about
a blow-job. What saddens me about this is I know
nothing will come of it.
It was shortlived, but it gave me a little cheer
Oh yeah, one last thing - there were only 4 articles
of impeachment read against Bill Clinton,
Bush has 35 true high crimes and misdemeanors.
