Do you believe President Bush's actions justify impeachment? * 114081 responses
Yes, between the secret spying, the deceptions leading to war and more, there is plenty to justify putting him on trial. 85%
No, like any president, he has made a few missteps, but nothing approaching "high crimes and misdemeanors." 5%
No, the man has done absolutely nothing wrong. Impeachment would just be a political lynching. 9% (image placeholder)

George said way back when that he would like to be dictator. We all thought he was joking at the time. But it is becoming increasingly clear that he meant what he said. He has violated numerous international laws that we have agreed to via treaty, which makes those laws the law of the land.* George has openly admitted to violating the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. In addition he has probably violated many other laws as well given his attitude as is shown by his statements when faced with the expiration of the Patriot act.
“I don’t give a goddamn,” Bush retorted. “I’m the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way.”
“Mr. President,” one aide in the meeting said. “There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution.”
“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,” Bush screamed back. “It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”
He may as well have said, “I am the State.” Given his Oath ("I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.") I would contend that his words are enough to constitute treason. Obviously George has no intention to protect the constitution.
I know the MSNBC poll presented above is unscientific, but nevertheless it gives me a little hope that the people have had enough of this tyrant.
