Just when will the courts and congress really turn on Bush? Blood has been sighted in the water recently, but the sharks are not yet circling. Could it ever happen? I think Bush will be attacked when out of office, I can’t see the teflon coated president getting attacked by congress and the courts while still in office.
On December 18 of last year, Congressman John Conyers Jr. (D., Mich.) introduced into the House of Representatives a resolution inviting it to form â€œa select committee to investigate the Administration’s intent to go to war before congressional authorization, manipulation of pre-war intelligence, encouraging and countenancing torture, retaliating against critics, and to make recommendations regarding grounds for possible impeachment.â€ Although buttressed two days previously by the news of the National Security Agency’s illegal surveillance of the American citizenry, the request attracted little or no attention in the pressâ€”nothing on television or in the major papers, some scattered applause from the left-wing blogs, heavy sarcasm on the websites flying the flags of the militant right.
We have before us in the White House a thief who steals the country’s good name and reputation for his private interest and personal use; a liar who seeks to instill in the American people a state of fear; a televangelist who engages the United States in a never-ending crusade against all the world’s evil, a wastrel who squanders a vast sum of the nation’s wealth on what turns out to be a recruiting drive certain to multiply the host of our enemies. In a word, a criminalâ€”known to be armed and shown to be dangerous.
Bush seems proof against anything, other presidents would have been on trial before now. Look at what Nixon was removed for, Bush has done things 100 times worse and yet he survives. Why?
