I'm all for impeaching politicians, and anyone else involved in government corruption. But what ticks me off more than anything is how republicans are very selective on who they attack for impeachment. If they're liberals they're fair game, but when it's in their own party, they turn a blind eye.
The Bush administration was caught red handed for supporting torture, lying about WMD's in Iraq and their involvement in 911. They changed the mission in Iraq three times just to continue the occupation of that country. Lets not forget about Enron, the savings and loan scandal, and the Halliburton contracts.
It seems like republicans like to ignore and turn a blind eye when their own republican leaders are involved in corruption and criminal activities. What I find amazing, it was a democrat that I can't stomach by the name of Nancy Pelosi that saved Bush's a$$ when she announced on the congressional floor that any possible impeachment proceeding against Bush would be taken off the table!
So when conservatives push for impeachment, I have to ask, where were they during the Bush administration? When the shoe is on the other foot it's a different story.
Politics, to support either side is really choosing the same of two evils.

The flaw in your logic is it does not take into account that for 2 years Democrats controlled 2 of 3 branches of government. If the Republicans / Bush were involved as you say then the Democrats would have exposed that the moment they had the chance...
Have they done that? Nope.
