I was in the car the other day listening to a local station talking about Bush and this whole NSA scandal. And he mentions that a couple senators, including B. Boxer (California) is talking that they want to impeach President Bush.

Have you guys heard anything like that? Or anything from your own senators?

Rep. Conyers from Detroit has also echoed similar thoughts. I only hope a few more can conjure the testicular fortitude to do the same.

"testicular fortitute", greatest phrase ever.

I know there are many sites like or something, but noone is going to take that seriously. Now that we have senators on our side, we might just win.

Actually, that is not quite true. He is the Rep for the 14th Cong. District of Michigan.
map from this site:

And, I believe hs is pushing for censure:

I am taking steps against the Bush Administration’s handling of the Iraq War and its collection of intelligence. I am going to need you to stand with me in fighting for accountability.

Join me to demand censure for Bush and Cheney in addition to the creation of a Special Committee to investigate impeaching the Bush Administration for its widespread abuses of power.[456ECCD5-4EAC-4C6D-8A17-89728B250AE2]

Sorry for the sidetrack, but I felt it was important to correct Conyers jurisdiction.

So whats not true? He IS from Detroit. And I did say "similar thoughts." Are these not similar thoughts? I would figure a mod would have something more productive to do than pull quotes to discredit people, there is enough of that on these boards.
He has called for investigations regarding abuses of power. Isnt this what we are talking about?

Sorry but it takes more than just hating someone to impeach them.

Bill Clinton was impeached for lying under oath. What did Bush do to deserve impeachment?

Well, there are people who could better answer this, but in short...
Bush is innocent until proven guilty, right?
The few leaders with cojones are only calling for investigations into his abuses of power. We have apparent manipulation of intelligence. Then there is illegal spying on American citizens. Along with an illegal war in Iraq. I could go on, but this would be better answered by someone who will post quotes and evidence. I am too lazy to do this, and I seriously doubt I will change your mind, so there isnt much incentive to do so.
I dont hate Bush, I just think he is a friggin crook.
I think he would have made a much better card cheat rather than president of the greatest nation on earth.

It's the same weak arguments over and over again. Sites like have been up way before this whole scandal, but they'll try to play it like "This is the last straw." They've been looking for something to impeach Bush over since he took office, and they think that if they use the right angle and spin the story enough, they just might "win."

What did Bush do?

He performed (the federal government said) illegal actions by allowing or signing the NSA program where they'd spy on US citizens without us knowing. That's an illegal action large enough for impeachment. And personally, If I was a senator I wouldn't just announce I want to impeach bush on a whim. There's obviously some sort of basis of them saying they'd want to impeach Bush. You get the point.

And I'm not a fan of Bush, but he's better than Kerry.

Well, Bush has been informally impeached hundreds of times. But that means nothing. To impeach is to accuse. Many people think it means to remove from office. It doesn't. To do that, one must proceed through the legal system.

If he is guilty of so many crimes, why is it that nobody has taken the formal step to officially impeach him? Unless and until they do, what they are doing is merely engaging in political mudslinging.

The Democrats are playing right into his hands. As long as they keep whining about how terrible he is, it takes their concentration away from offering good solutions to our nation's problems. And the voting public is getting sick of it, and the polls will reflect their dissatisfaction once again.
