It's about goddamn time.

Wisconsin Democrats are calling for the impeachment of President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
Loyalists at this weekend's state party convention in Oshkosh passed a resolution calling for Congress to initiate impeachment proceedings against the three officials for their role in the war in Iraq.
The resolution contends that the administration "lied or misled" the United Nations, Congress, and the American public about the justification for the war. It cites the so-called "Downing Street memo" from British Prime Minister Tony Blair's government, as well as reports from U.N. weapons inspectors as evidence of widespread deception.

Damn right. Republicans (a lot of the same ones who are still in there now) insisted on having a moral obligation to impeach a sitting president for lying about whether he had sex with an intern. A reprehensible act, which sullied the honor of the US government and the presidency.

Now, another sitting president has been shown to have lied to the American people in order to "sell" the US and it's allies a war for questionable reasons. A reprehensible act, which sullied the honor of the US government and the presidency. And has been directly responsible for the deaths of over 1700 US service-men and -women.

So - where is the "Republican morals and values" outrage now? Unless they speak up and express thier anger at this lying corrupt administration, they are merely proving what most democrats suspected all along.......that the impeachment of then President Clinton was not about "upholding the integrity of government". Rather it was just a bald political move meant to put a black mark on one of the most popular presidents America has had since Kennedy.
