I almost posted something related to this last week, but didn't when I couldn't find much being said about this elsewhere and I wanted to be sure that it was true.
It seems that a motion to censure Bush and Cheney was introduced in the House last week.
Introduced by John Conyers, for providing misleading information to Congress in advance of the Iraq war, failing to respond to written questions and potential violations of international law.
To view the resolution to create investigative body to determine if offenses are impeachable:
The resolution to censure President George W. Bush:
And, the resolution to censure Vice President Dick Cheney:
Congressmen Request WMD Intelligence Info; Bush Arrogantly Ignores FOIA Demand
The White House and DOD have failed to turn over WMD evidence after 500,000 Americans signed a petition delivered to Bush six months ago. He also has failed to answer questions or turn over documents requested by 52 Congressmen after the Downing Street Memo also surfaced in May. Many observers feel Bush thinks he's above the law, acting like Hitler in Nazi Germany.

Although support is fading, the administration appears anxious to further its war agenda, displaying outright arrogance while knowing the President is insulated from serious impeachment action due to what many critics feel is “a one-party dictatorship created after a 30 year neo-con power grab has now fully cast its dark shadow over the Washington D.C. landscape.”
It’s no secret American is trouble going into 2006. But the question remains how can the people fight back? Or the bigger question looms: Do enough Americans really care?
To illustrate how uncooperative the administration has become with FOIA requests, it took the Department of Defense (DOD) almost five months to respond to Rep Conyers initial request when On Nov. 30 DOD officials told Conyers in part:
“The request would take considerable time to process,” asking Conyers his willingness to pay fees for the WMD documentation, estimated by the DOD to be $110,000.
Since Rep. Conyers has not received an adequate response from the administration, last week he has introduced bills to censure Bush and Cheney for their refusal to respond, the Resolutions to be voted on by the House when it again convenes in January 2006.

Rep. John Conyers (D-Mi) is tired of the Bush arrogance and flaunting of federal law concerning the Iraq War and other matters. Friday he released a document called "The Constitution in Crisis," seeking a Congressional Resolution to again investigate Bush's possible impeachment.
By Greg Szymanski
In the lengthy report submitted to Congress and being distributed widely across America for citizens signatures, Sen. Conyers said he took this drastic action to “save the country” after President Bush arrogantly refused to respond to a letter submitted by 122 members of Congress and more than 500,000 Americans last July, asking him whether information in the infamous Downing Street Memo, alleging doctoring of WMD intelligence, was accurate.

Not a Scientifically Valid Survey.
Typical, presenting opinions as facts.

Do you guys even know what the qualifications for a scientifically valid survey are?
If not, I don't see how you can make any judgments on that survey because of that statement.

Why does the legislative branch in this country always get a pass? Don't we elect these people to do a job? Listening to someone like Conyers, Boxer, Kennedy, Kerry, Pelosi, Reed, Byrd etc. you'd think they were just passive observing journalists. To come back after the fact and criticize things they were previously informed about shouts of a job not performed. ANY MORON can look back in history and say "I would have done things this way" after the fact. People love to bash Bush. It's in fashion and many people are slaves to the fashion and the mainstream elitists media. Many are nothing but brain-dead, hate filled followers of an elistist liberal sludge pump. If you think all these things are lies from the executive branch, why not ask your leftwing representatives in Congress and the Senate why they did not do diligence in their jobs at the time the data was given to them?

Would someone like to explain what in the downing street minutes is really that big of a deal? The administration felt that, in light of the events on 9/11, Iraq was now too much of a threat to leave alone. I agree, as they were the most likely country to strike the US if they found a way, and would have been encouraged by the success of 9/11. That, having identified Iraq as a threat, the administration built a case for war is no crime. It is planning to protect the nation.
