Today's quote...From Bob Barr, of all People

"The American people are going to have to say, 'Enough of this business of justifying everything as necessary for the war on terror.' Either the Constitution and the laws of this country mean something or they don't. It is truly frightening what is going on in this country."

Bob Barr, former GOP congressman from Georgia

America wants to Impeach THIS President....

...according to the latest Zogby poll.

WASHINGTON - The word "impeachment" is popping up increasingly these days and not just off the lips of liberal activists spouting predictable bumper-sticker slogans.

After the unfounded claims about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction and recent news of domestic spying without warrants, mainstream politicians and ordinary voters are talking openly about the possibility that President Bush could be impeached. So is at least one powerful senator, Arlen Specter, R-Pa., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.


But a poll released last week by Zogby International showed 52 percent of American adults thought Congress should consider impeaching Bush if he wiretapped U.S. citizens without court approval, including 59 percent of independents and 23 percent of Republicans. (The survey had a margin of error of 2.9 percentage points.)

Given those numbers, impeachment could become an issue in this fall's congressional elections, and dramatically raise the stakes. If Democrats win control of the House of Representatives, a leading proponent of starting an official impeachment inquiry, Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., would become chairman of the House committee that could pursue it.

And if Conyers is in charge, you know it will happen.

BTW, poll numbers in 1998 showed a different story about the country's stomach for impeachment. This from a CNN article from September 25, 1998:

As you may know, Congress may vote soon on whether or not to begin formal hearings on whether to impeach Bill Clinton. Would you want your member of Congress to vote for or against beginning these hearings?

Yes 41%
No 53

As you may know, Independent Counsel Ken Starr turned over documents from his investigation to Congress. Do you think that the House of Representatives should or should not release more documents now from this investigation?

Yes 35%
No 61

In general, do you approve or disapprove of how the House Judiciary Committee is handling the inquiry into whether or not to impeach Bill Clinton?

Approve 37%
Disapprove 51

2006 mid terms ARE important.

Incompetence Defines the President

This from Harold Meyerson at the WaPo.

Incompetence is not one of the seven deadly sins, and it's hardly the worst attribute that can be ascribed to George W. Bush. But it is this president's defining attribute. Historians, looking back at the hash that his administration has made of his war in Iraq, his response to Hurricane Katrina and his Medicare drug plan, will have to grapple with how one president could so cosmically botch so many big things -- particularly when most of them were the president's own initiatives.

Pretty much says it all.
