It am still amazed that US elected government impeached a president for lying about consensual sex on the public record, while only 36% of Americans approved. Yet despite this seeming itchy impeachment finger Mr. Bush who has made many demonstrably false statements before congress and in addresses to the public is perceived by many as unimpeachable even with 50% of the public now supporting it. It truely is a mad world eh.
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, 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."

44% disagreed, and 6% said they didn't know or declined to answer. The poll has a +/- 3.1% margin of error.

Among those who felt strongly either way, 39% strongly agreed, while 30% strongly disagreed.

"The results of this poll are truly astonishing," said co-founder Bob Fertik. "Bush's record-low approval ratings tell just half of the story, which is how much Americans oppose Bush's policies on Iraq and other issues. But this poll tells the other half of the story - that a solid plurality of Americans want Congress to consider removing Bush from the White House."

Clearly we need some real leadership in Washington. Not only has the white house failed us, but so has the Senate, the House, and the Supreme Court. America has become a sick joke in the eyes of the international community thanks to our lame government and media (present company excluded of course). I pray for the day When we can stop being scared and face the real enemy, ourselves.

If? wtf? Does that depend on what the meaning of if, is?

"Intelligence gathered by this and other governments leaves no doubt that the Iraq regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons ever devised. . . . The people of the United States and our friends and allies will not live at the mercy of an outlaw regime that threatens the peace with weapons of mass murder." G.W. Bush

"It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly American criminal class except Congress." Mark Twain

that poll is just a 'gut response'

when the voters are presented with the hard fact & realization that
VP Cheney will then become the Commander-in-Chief....

i think the poll result would & will be very different.

think about it, GW gets impeached or removed from office or resigns...
the then Pres. Dick Cheney, could very well nominate someone like
Gov. Mitt Romney to the office of VP....

The real question on impeachment is whether the House and the Senate will go for it, as demonstrated by the lack of effect of public impeachment opinion polls on the actions of said Congress. Given where the majority rests and the defensive, polarized political posture of that majority, any investigation, much less outright impeachment process of the President seems highly unlikely at this point.

Perhaps many heads will role (is that too strong a metaphor?) as the subpoenas and indictments make their way up the CofC, and the VP (and maybe even the SofS) will most probably get their's long before the buck stops at the CINC. That's one big if and an indeterminate when.
