By a margin of 50% to 44%, Americans want Congress to consider impeaching President Bush if he lied about the war in Iraq, according to a new poll commissioned by AfterDowningStreet.org, a grassroots coalition that supports a Congressional investigation of President Bush´s decision to invade Iraq in 2003.

The poll was conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs, the highly-regarded non-partisan polling company. The poll interviewed 1,001 U.S. adults on October 6-9.

The poll found that 50% agreed with the statement:

"If President Bush did not tell the truth about his reasons for going to war with Iraq, Congress should consider holding him accountable by impeaching him."

Continued....


Besides the obvious implications Bush is undermining democracy by destroying public trust.

Without faith in government you cannot have true liberty and democracy.

The deceptions have left us at odds with the world, and weaker at home.

But, of course Kerry or Gore would have done much the same thing with different words....

I am soooo tired of arguing over damned polls such as this, but if he lied, then so be it: start the process and impeach.

Anyway it works out, it will end up as Clinton's impeachment: he was impeached, yet finished his term in office, just as Bush will, if impeached.

Its the WAR that needs to be impeached, but you can't do that.

It reflects American anger over the war as much as Bush, if not more.

Your subjective interpretation, undoubtedly, correct?
One may easily see it as frustration over the war and anger over if Bush lied.
The combinations of subjective interpretations can continue on in a variety of ways.

Uh, last I checked Bush had this to say about why to invade Iraq...

"RIGHT THERE!!!!!!!! Look that plant is either making this or nukes! Look doesn't that say nuke?!?!?!?!?!?!? KILL!!!!!!!! They have nukes! There is one pointing right at us!!!!"

Iraq didn't, therefor he lied.

If you impeach a president because he "lied".. then you will have to impeach each and every president in office.

The conflict in Iraq is now becomming a dividing point in American Politics.

I look forward to the time we see the troop withdraw's start.. and maybe we can get past the conflict here at home.
