Impeachment Talks Again

Posted by ALmod on March 26, 2007

It’s not going to happen.  President Bush has all but begged Congress for impeachment proceedings.  Some Republicans are pretty much calling for it.  Well, some Dems are calling for it, too.  But I can give you in two words why it will never happen:

President Cheney.

George W. Bush has pretty much done all the damage he’s going to do.  With Congress slowly and steadily tightening the reins, he’s very quickly becoming a lame duck.  Why mess with that one?  An impeachment at this point would only waste congressional time and distract from doing any real work and further divide the country.  He’s just not worth it, folks.  With a Democratic majority in both houses, not all Dem legislation will pass, but you can be very sure that the President is no longer going to get any more of his own agenda pushed through.  Not without a fight.  So really, all Congress has to do is sit back, ignore the tantrums, and wait until January 2009.

    I’d love to see Bush and Cheney sent home without supper, but I don’t think it will happen. My primary objection to impeachment proceedings is the fear that we’ll end up with tit for tat — every time the President and the Congressional majority are of different parties, we’ll have another round of “gotcha”. If impeachment does go forward, watch for the Republicans to conveniently ignore all of Bush’s crimes and misdemeanors and claim that it’s just payback for Clinton.
