Yes boys and girls! The pie fight at dKos is over, for a while anyway, ‘Can we call it a Constitutional Crisis Yet?’ lays out the case pretty well. buddydharma gits the point across here…….and how I might add.
Even those who, for various and good reasons were against impeachment, have recanted and joined us in moving forward on this, the most important issue facing the 110th Congress.
To Impeach the foul criminal who even now is insisting he is above and beyond the law.
Some have had enough and they are acting. And no I’m not talking about bloggers. You know where I stand.
I’m talking about the elected representatives of the people.
It’s very surprising to me that the great state of New Mexico appears as if it will be the first state legislature to send a proposition of impeachment to their members of the House of Representatives but that’s the way it’s shaping up. Read about this including the text of the bill of impeachment as written. This process doesn’t require the Governor of the state in question to sign off on it, so Bill Richardson can take a pass if he wants, and requires only a simple majority of the state legislature to vote for it. This is being done according to the Jefferson Manual of Rules for the House. Surprising, but I’ll take it.
If you read me much that all might sound familiar. Seein’ as how I started the petition drive to get the City of Oakland to vote for this some months ago and a blog away. Now at that time there was much derision and comments such as ‘Why waste your time?’ from ‘some people’.
Those people were wrong. The movement to impeach through the House is gaining steam and is eminently doable now that the Democrats hold a majority in the House and Senate. Yeah, I know…but I say Fuck Liebermann! But more than that people are now scared shitless. ‘The Decider’ made reference to starting a war with Iran in his ‘speech’ on Iraq and even the chattering classes are wigging out.
Impeaching this bughouse nutball is not only possible it’s the right thing to do.
If you live in Oakland and have not yet signed please, for our nation and our conscience please clik on Impeach Bush Button in the upper left sidebar.
One more thing: I called the Democratic Majority leading to Pelosi’s becoming ‘Madame Speaker’ over two years ago so bet against me at your peril.
Now sign the petition!
Flash Update: Rasmussen reports Bush approval at the lowest level they’ve ever recorded. So if you are a Democratic staffer reading this tell your boss to get off his ass and get moving. Because the train is leaving the station; Impeachment next stop!
