Kim Priestap has an
article up at Wizbang! details the Democrats plan to censure and impeach both President Bush and Vice President Chaney. This article is a must-read for any conservative/traditionalist/Republican who is thinking of sitting out this election.
Kim quotes the following from an article at Lawhawk:
Think I'm kidding? They've already introduced H.Res 635 (complete with 37 Democrat cosponsors) to investigate articles of impeachment, H.Res. 636 (18 cosponsors) to censure President Bush, and H.Res. 637 to censure Vice President Cheney.
What's the end game? President Pelosi most likely. This comes from article 2, section 1 of the US constitution:
In Case of the Removal of the President from Office, or of his Death, Resignation, or Inability to discharge the Powers and Duties of the said Office, the same shall devolve on the Vice President, and the Congress may by Law provide for the Case of Removal, Death, Resignation or Inability, both of the President and Vice President, declaring what Officer shall then act as President, and such Officer shall act accordingly, until the Disability be removed, or a President shall be elected.
This means that should the President and Vice President both be successfully removed from office, that Congress can enact a law designating which officer of Congress shall act as President until a new President is elected. If the Democrats control Congress, you can guess who would want that job ... Speaker Pelosi.
The last major actions on the bills listed above was in December of 2005. This isn't a new idea, and Democrats like Howard Dean will even lie straight-faced to the Washington Post, ABC News while Kerry is out bragging that if the Dems take the House in 2006, Bush is as good as gone.
So the Democrats don't agree with the Bush policies ... that's fine ... that's why we have two parties. But to go as far as they have, and then to lie about it straight-faced to the American people ... that's just going too far.
I for one will cast my vote the day early voting opens here in Texas, that you can count on.
