Near-Majority in U.S. Support Bush Impeachment

So far I haven’t seen this in any U.S. news outlet:

Nearly half of the US public wants President George W. Bush to face impeachment, and even more favor that fate for Vice President Dick Cheney, according to a poll out Friday.

The survey by the American Research Group found that 45 percent support the US House of Representatives beginning impeachment proceedings against Bush, with 46 percent opposed, and a 54-40 split in favor when it comes to Cheney.

Here’s the poll.

    I’ve seen this mentioned on a number of blogs now, but have not yet heard or seen it on MSM.

  2. Imagine if there were any push behind this idea from the Democrats in Congress.

    Oh, right, the Democrats in Congress don’t push anything.

  3. They push hot air. That counts for a couple of points, right?

    In another thread I mentioned how Andrew Sullivan, and Anna Marie Cox both found that at the worst time for Clinton during his impeachment rigamorole the most public support for his impeachment was 26%. At most 36% wanted hearings on the matter. Now 46% of us want the fuckwad bush gone, and that’s a fact Jack!

  5. Pinch me, I must be dreaming. The very idea gets my adrenaline going!

  6. It’s definitely making the blog rounds (I wrote about it yesterday). It’ll have to get picked up by the MSM eventually, right?

  7. Oh my Gawd! Another Tart — but this one’s not watery.

    A majority does support impeaching Cheney, and since it’d be wiser to get rid of him first anyway…

    Ms. Tart:

    I read that blog post linked from your comment. You write *very* well. If your other posts are like that one, you’ve got an awesome blog.

    Wouldn’t it be nice someday to watch Bush and Cheney be taken away in handcuffs?

    I heard a speech by Judge Jones, the decider in the Dover v. Kitzmiller case last night. He used an anecdote wherein during the Soviet rule of Russia, a judge was visiting Justice Souter, and they got into a discussion of what the most important decision by the Court during the 1900s was. Souter said he thought Brown v. Board of Education, and the Russian said no, it was the US v. Nixon, because that showed clearly to everyone that the president was not above the law in the United States.

    It almost made me cry to think how far we’ve fallen.
