Idiot Bush Should Be Impeached

Today Attorney General Alberto Gonzales admitted that President Bush prevented a review of the warrantless wiretapping program earlier this year by Justice Department lawyers.

Gonzales said Bush refused to give the Justice Department's Office of Professional Responsibility access to the classified program. When Gonzales was asked why Bush had declined access, he replied, "The president of the United States makes decisions about who is ultimately given access." Of course, in this case, by denying access, Bush has also obstructed the investigation.

When in the last six months, a number of Bush administration critics were calling for his impeachment, I thought that was way out of line. No more. This action by Bush is obstruction of justice, and is an impeachable offense.

If the Congress of the United States can impeach a sitting president for lying about a blow job from a White House intern, it can certainly impeach a president who is actively preventing the proper investigation of a program that has the potential to threaten our civil liberties.
