Poll: Majority Favor Impeaching Bush and Cheney
Just as President Bush was marking his birthday this week, a new poll shows a majority of Americans surveyed favor the start of impeachment against him and his vice-president.
The New Hampshire-based American Research Group released the survey, which revealed these deeply troubling viewpoints for Bush and Cheney.
Among registered voters - 46% favor the start of impeachment by Congress, 44% are opposed and 10% are undecided.
Cheney scored worse -- 50% favor the start of impeachment, 44% are opposed and 6% are undecided.
Also this week, one news anchor stepped forward and called for both Bush and Cheney to resign. (I know over the last few decades, the final two years of a two-term president brings much talk of impeachment and resignation. Maybe the love just dwindles to hostile familiarity over time.)
Happy Birthday, Mr President. (See also.)
