Democrats Have a Plan to Impeach Bush and Cheney if They Take Back the House

Yes, impeach President Bush and Vice President Cheney. The plan is already in place should the Democrats take over the House:

A plan is in place to censure and impeach President Bush and Vice President Cheney. Orchestrated and organized by the radical Left and Congressman John Conyers, Jr., this plan is ready to go should the Democratic Party take control of the House of Representatives in November.

The plan is the ultimate manifestation of left-wing hatred for George W. Bush rooted in the contentious election of 2000. Since failing to defeat Bush in 2004, the Left has focused its efforts on destroying his presidency by assembling a list of charges aimed at impeaching him.

Impeachment plans began seriously coalescing in 2005, after the NY Times published classified aspects of the NSA surveillance program. In mid- December of that year, Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-CA, asked a group of presidential scholars whether President George W. Bush had committed an impeachable offense when he authorized the NSA foreign surveillance program. John Dean, the long-time Bush critic of Watergate fame provided Boxer with the answer she and most other Democrats were looking for: “Bush is the first president to admit an impeachable offense,” he said.

Around the same time, Senator John Kerry, D-MA, told a gathering of 100 Democrats that, should they capture the House in 2006, there would be a “solid case” for impeachment based on President Bush’s “misleading” the American public over prewar intelligence. Kerry was picking up where another prominent Democrat had, on November 1, 2005, left off. On that day, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid called a rare closed Senate session with other Democrats to look into the “misinformation and disinformation” used by the Bush administration to justify Operation Iraqi Freedom.

If the Dems take over the House, successfully impeach and convict President Bush and Vice President Cheney, guess what would happen as a result. President Nancy Pelosi.

It sounds far fetched, but that appears to be the Democrats’ plan:

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.

Greg Tinti informs us that the nutroots desperately want it to happen.

Don’t forget, if the Dems take over the Senate, they could conceivably get what they want. It would be political suicide, but I don’t think they care about that. They want power, and they don’t care how they get it.

Today, the Washington Times published an article, which reports that conservative voters may stay home on Election Day:

The Republican Party can stave off defeat with a strong turnout on Nov. 7, party leaders are telling the faithful — but they are finding it tough to sell that message to some disillusioned conservative voters.

“The message hasn’t gotten across because a lot of people are sick and tired of thinking the only reason for going to the polls is to vote for the Republicans because they are lesser of two evils,” said Tom McClusky, vice president for government affairs at the Family Research Council (FRC), a leading social conservative group.

“Conservatives aren’t motivated to come out, is what I’m finding,” said conservative campaign consultant Rick Shaftan, who is based in Sparta, N.J. “They see no reason to re-elect the people who are in office.”

A top Republican pollster confidentially echoed those sentiments.

“There are very definitely trouble signs in many states of what we call the ‘LRs’ — the lethargic Republicans,” said the pollster, who agreed to speak on the condition of anonymity. “They are unhappy with the president and have little love lost for Congress.”

There’s little danger that such voters would switch to the Democrats, but “the real problem is that they won’t vote at all,” the pollster said.

Those conservative voters considering staying home may want to rethink their decision.
