It seems the talks of impeaching President Bush are floating around again, only this time it was Republican Senator Chuck Hagel who brought it up.
I am against impeaching Bush for a couple of reasons:
1) The thought of Dick Cheney being the President scares me.
2) Bush will be out of office in less than two years, so what is the point.
Now that the President is dealing with a Congress that opposes him, he will not be able to ram as many things through. Yes this administration has abused its power and yes that needs to be investigated. More importantly though, Congress or the Supreme Court needs to limit the President’s ability to use signing statements. This administration has made a mockery of the law writing and signing process by his reckless abuse of signing statements.
Instead of impeachment, Bush’s hands need to be tied so that he, and future Presidents, will be unable to do the things that this administration have done.
And when I say his hands need to be tied, I an in no way referring to the war in Iraq, setting up time tables for withdraw, or anything like that. We need to leave Iraq when the Iraqi’s are ready to take care of themselves.
