Q&A Friday #32: Are The Democrats Going To Try To Impeach Bush?
Question: “There has been more and more talk of trying to impeach the President. Is this an election tactic for November or are the democrats seriously going to pursue this?” — France_Sucks
Answer: The Democrats are eaten up with hatred for Bush and they want to get payback for Clinton, so if they think they can impeach Bush, they’ll go for it, no matter how flimsy the charges are. I mean, if they can impeach him for wearing white after Labor Day, they’ll do it.
Unfortunately for them, the GOP controls the Senate and is almost assured of continuing to do so after the 2006 elections. And since the fact that Bush beats Democrats in elections and is serious about fighting terrorism doesn’t aggravate conservatives the way it does a lot of lefties, the liberals aren’t going to get anywhere trying to impeach him.
Still, expect a few Democrats in office to talk about it anyway to try to curry favor with the Kos crowd on the left side of the blogosphere.
