Impeachment more difficult to avoid

Tom ParsonsBroomfield

Bush became safe from impeachment seven years ago when he chose Cheney as his political mate. The threat became “throw me out and you get Cheney in my place,” a no-win proposition for the country. That said, the case for impeachment gets stronger as each day goes by. There is new evidence the Bush Administration has lied and deceived the public in yet another of this administration’s signature morality charades – again, one in which “the end justifies the means”. As reported by the Washington Post on Dec. 4, an intelligence report just released reveals that Bush had been notified that Iran had halted its nuclear program prior to his commencing efforts to turn world opinion against Iran by claiming they were on the road to becoming a nuclear threat. While hiding this evidence from people the world over, Bush has continued to market his war-like posture towards Iran as having a legitimate basis – citing his own false nuclear claims as evidence. In doing so, he has given credence to the fear-driven claims heard from the Muslim world that Christian America is bent on destroying Islam; as a consequence, America and our allies are, more than ever, the targets of religious extremists. Hopefully we will elect as our next President a person who is honest, does not mistake his/her narcissism for virtue, is level-headed, possesses a personal sense of morality which is not dependent upon a narrow interpretation of religious faith, and is experienced in the art of bringing opposing factions together. Check out the candidates and determine for yourself which one comes the closest to those standards. Then, vote what you discover.
