> > Some people just want to impeach Bush for the "war" in Iraq. Sorry folks the system wasn't designed to work that way. And if you impeach bush wouldn't you have to impeach all the legislature that voted to approve the war?

> Well it should be set up that way.

So when the public disaproves of a military action he should face removal from office? This is a constitutional republic, not a direct democracy so "shoulds" are not relevant to the procedure of law.

>I don't think it's too much to require that presidents should go to war if absolutely need be. Especially when we've get ANOTHER more important war going on.

well, let's clarify war, we haven't had an official war since World War 2 because the president cannot declare war by himself, only the legislature can as defined by the US constitution. The legality of military action in Iraq is basically an extension of established presidence concerning the use of executive authority for military action. Detail details, i know but it's pretty important to understanding when you discuss rule of the land and so forth. Under this idea Bush has used no more executive power than preceding presidents, and yet he should face impeachment charges for it.

What is absolute need for war? Some argue war is never an option, such as pacifist. We can't even agree on the definition of the word "is", better yet something as important as that. Reference any War in our history, from the revolutionary to now and you will find none of them had an absolute need for War.

Now I'm not backing up or justifying our involvement in Iraq, as I'm pretty much an isolationist, but I do understand the arguments to be made for it and recognize the fact that you don't just impeach presidents because they made an unpopular decision. Bush will be gone in 2 years, just be patient.

And what then?
Bush Sr. drops a couple paychecks, the electorate basically over-rules THAT election, and our pres is be named Jeb. And his vp is be Condy.

Agreed though, that there really is no way to impeach Bush. Even then, an impeachment will have about as much effect as the Clinton impeachment.
Unless people can actually prove that Howdy Doody knew about the 9/11 attacks ahead of time, which I highly doubt because he's not smart enough to read a freakin file, there will be no impeachment.
But seriously, the rest of the world has got to think that the current administration is some kind of divine comedy. I mean, old Lex Luthor had a beer and shot a congressman in the face... and he got away with a simple apology! WTF!?
