Join me on 4/28

A nationwide grassroots effort is building to impeach Bush. On April 28th there will be major events all over the country.

http://www.a28.org

This is a very well-organized event. The site has a cool map function that will point you to the event in your area. My kids and I will be going on April 28th to the event in Santa Ana.

Also, check out ImpeachSpace for an entire social network to Impeach Bush.

Maybe GW really is a Uniter.

  1. Sweeeeet.

    But it will only make sense if we impeach Bush AND Cheney. After all, his is the hand in the back of the dummy.

  2. Yes, yes impeach Bushitlerburton. O.K. let’s say that Kucinich puts forth his articles of impeachment, and the House Judiciary Committee approves and refers the matter to the entire House for a vote. If approved by the majority, the President is now “impeached” and the matter moves to a Senate trial with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America presiding. Yada yada… bottom line the Senate needs to vote with a 2/3 (that’s 67 Senators mind you) majority that the President is guilty and is removed from office. This will never happen and you know it.

    What’s best for this country? An impotent, failed, idiot president that is politically impotent, and will treadmill his last 18 months in office, or pointless political kangaroo court, that will do nothing but further divide the country?

  3. Nothing great was ever accomplished by people who gave up in the face of certain defeat.

  4. I beg to differ on both counts. If, like Nixon before him, Bush is faced with criminal charges, he could be persuaded to resign rather than face the proceedings. And I would suggest that Nixon accomplished something great by resigning — he spared us having to go through the long, drawn-out and divisive process that Venjanz is describing.

    Now, mind you, I’m no lawyer, so I can’t say for sure what criminal charges could realistically be brought against the Bush/Cheney regime, though I know in my heart they’re guilty of every slimy crime in the book. And it was Nixon’s own tapes that were the ironic evidence that finally brought him down, whereas Bush & Co. are more careful to cover their asses.

    But still, though I doubt anything would come of it other than the symbolic, I think it’s necessary to show the world — and the history books — that the actions of this administration are not condoned by the people of this country.

  5. This is nothing like Nixon’s situation. At least during that process, I had at least heard of the movement and Nixon’s crimes were visible. I think in pockets of liberal thought (where most of you guys are from, no?), this ‘grassroots’ movement might pick up some steam. In the rest of the country, this is laughable.

    At least it is here 🙂 Good luck, fellas.

  6. Bush’s crimes are far more visible, numerous, and heinous compared to Nixon’s.

  7. Um, Todd? Are you there? Hello?

    Nixon’s crimes were well-hidden until his own tapes proved his undoing. Until the existence of the tapes was revealed, there was no usable evidence linking the administration to Watergate. And anyway, his crime was attempting to cover-up the break-in; there’s no evidence he actually ordered it, although it wouldn’t be out of character for him to have done so. I’m no fan of Tricky Dick, but by today’s standards he was a shoplifter at 7eleven.

    What Bush has done makes Nixon look like Pope John Fucking Paul, man. But thank god ol’ George has you, Todd, to tirelessly and cluelessly defend him. Go to him; he needs you, now more than ever.

  8. I’ll be in San Diego on 4/28, participating in the California Democratic Convention, as I have the past two years. I’m sure I’ll find time to check out the local action there, especially since I have several friends who are big PDA folks.

    BTW, if you want to check out the legal case against Bush and pals, at least when it comes to the build-up to the Iraq War/Occupation, check out United States v. George Bush, et al. by Elizabeth de la Vega, a retired federal prosecutor who brought 20 years of experience to writing this book. I’ve seen her speak – she knows what she’s talking about.
