In case anyone is wondering, impeachment is when an official is kicked out because they made numerous mistakes.

I think Bush is not doing his job, and should be impeached.

If you impeach Bush won't Cheney get into the Oval office? If so do you think he'll be any better?

Do you even know what impeachment is? o_o It's not removing a president from office, you know. It's charging the president of a crime. Sure, he's done stupid things, but there's no evidence he committed a crime.

And Popo has a point. If you hate Bush's way, Cheney won't be any better.

Seriously, just bite the bullet and wait a year. There's no use whining when the next election isn't far off.

There's plenty of evidence that he lied and manipulated intelligence to send the country to war in Iraq. Certainly an impeachable offense.

And FYI, it's entirely within the bounds of the Constitution to impeach the President and Vice-President simultaneously.

I thought there were only suspicions that it was his underlings that did this. So far he could claim total ignorance and be believed (this was not meant to be a joke about his intelligence, honest).
Right now I don't think anyone has any substantial evidence to link to him to any wrong doings.

That would put the Democrats in power right? I'm not to familiar with the line of succession but I'm sure the Speaker of the House is after the VP.

Remember the so-called 'Downing Street Memo' that implicated collusion between the American and British governments to fix the intelligence on Iraqi WMDs around the policy to go to war, rather than the other way around? That was just the tip of the iceberg. There is info coming out seemingly every day about a concerted effort by the Administration from the top-down to mislead Congress and the American public about the threat supposedly posed by Saddam Hussein and his role in aiding and abetting al-Qaeda [which, of course, was nonexistent]. If the President or Vice-President made any statements under oath that reiterated any of these claims, they are effectively guilty of perjury.

True, either way we get the bad end. WE can either:
1.) Keep Bush and wait till he leaves or gets assassinated.
or
2.) Impeach Bush and get Cheney, who'll kill off the entire congress claiming he thought they were wild geese.

Decisions, decisions.

What's the point? The impeachment process isn't speedy, like every other process... due to bureaucracy. So really, it wouldn't even make much of a difference. He's accomplished what he has set to do, so kicking him out a week before his term is over isn't going to do much.

Slashrose1010- True. By the time he's impeached, we'll already have the new president in office (I don't mean that literally).

Exuse me, but age has nothing to do with how much you know about politics.

Younger people are less likely to read newspapers, watch actual news or check other media sources.

Well, most likely if Bush were to be impeached, then Cheney would most likely resign.

That really depends on the person. I mean, I listen to the BBC daily, listen to Democracy Now, and read my local newspaper. On top of this, I read National Geographic (for a better idea of world politics), Rolling Stone's political articles (don't laugh, they actually have halfway decent articles), and the Wall Street Journal so I can better understand the economy. If anything, I think younger people have a better grasp of politics because they are more open minded and not as set in their beliefs (in that they can actually admit they were wrong).

Yeah!! Thanks for sticking up for us kids! But anyway, I know a lot about politics because my family is well informed.
