Is It January 2009 Yet?

Just how bad are things getting for the Bush administration? Well, a new poll from the American Research Group shows that 54 percent of all adults questioned (and 50 percent of registered voters) favor the U.S. House of Representatives commencing impeachment proceedings against Dick Cheney, while the country divides almost evenly on whether to impeach and remove George W. Bush from office as well.

By comparison, former Wonkette Ana Marie Cox notes in Time’s Swampland blog that prior to President Bill Clinton’s partisan impeachment in 1998, a paltry 26 percent of Americans surveyed said that any such proceedings should begin.

Not surprisingly, decisive majorities of Democrats would like to fire both Bush and Cheney, while more than three-quarters of Republican’ts still oppose impeachment of either man. If that split left independents to decide the matter, we’d be looking at new White House management. As TPM CafĂ© observes, “Among independents, 50% favor starting impeachment proceedings against President Bush, to only 30% opposed. And 51% of independents are also for starting impeachment proceedings against Dick Cheney, to 29% opposed.”

UPDATE: Do you need a refresher on why Dick Cheney is worth impeaching? Robert Greenwald’s Brave New Films has put together a video succinctly characterizing the evidence against the veep. It’s well worth watching--and passing along.

You may not realize that the only thing standing between where we are today and a nationally televised impeachment investigation is the House Judiciary passing this resolution, which is currently awaiting consideration in their
committee. Luckily, the head of this committee, John Conyers, has said recently that he supports of the national impeachment movement.

All we need to push it over the edge is public support, and that's where we come in.
