What exactly are the charges that are going to be brought up? You could say that he lied to get us into the Iraq war, but then pretty much all of congress saw the same intelligence and voted to give him the authority and funding to start the war. At worst you could say that he was guilty of believing bad information.
--The charges have to do with "signing statements" that repudiate Constitutional checks and balances. They have to do with a male prostitute in the White House for 200 days out of a year. They have to do with 750 laws that the Bush junta overrules. They have to do with lying to Congress. They have to do with violations of Geneva conventions and international law. This administration is criminal, not merely corrupt.
The Valarie Palme "scandal" isn't much of a scandal. The special prosecutor hasn't found anyone suspected of being guilty of anything other than lying about a non-criminal issue.
--It's not a "crime" when nearly one hundred intell agents in foreign nations are murdered, offed, killed and eliminated who knew everything about WMD in Iraq?
--I don't think the deaths of Plame's team are insignificant, due to Bush's revelations. Further, it is against the law to expose intell agents to harm by exposing their networks. That's what Bush did. There's a LAW AGAINST that, specifically.
The "domestic" (actually international) spying isn't anything new and you'll be hard-pressed to find fault with the President when the Attorney General said it was legal and the Senate Intelligence committee was briefed numerous times on the program.
--Domestic surveillance is a labor-intensive and expensive but harmless activity so long as individuals are not being slandered and prosecuted while innocent.
Of course this spat with Iran is nothing more than a few words tossed back and forth. Can't convict on that yet. The only crime I'm sure that will stick is the crime of not following the Democratic parties wishes. Basically this is a partisan issue and not one in which you'll be able to point to evidence and point to an existing law that shows guilt. All this of course is if and only if the Democrats are able to get enough seats in the House this election term. By then we could be in a war with Iran and who wants to Impeach a president during war times? Come on! How un-patriotic! The cycle never ends.
--Imperialism and international terrorism (which the Administrations of some several presidents have been guilty of going back to Truman) are prosecutable war crimes. I hope to see the day when the cabal in power all get hung at the gallows. And you can include the Queen of England in it as well. She's right in there.

The neocons want everyone to believe this is fact, but it has more to do with stolen and supressed minority votes ("challenged") in key states.

Right. And even if true, which has never been proven, if you factor in the voting of dead people, illegal aliens, etc. used by the dems, it would probably be a wash.
IMO this is really beating a dead horse AND shining some light where the dems really don't want there to be any, since their voter fraud is documented as far back as the Kennedy election in 1960.
