The Unimpeachable USA
There are many reasons to why impeachment has not been tabled. Some fear a backdoor deal was made with Bush that Pelosi and Reid won't impeach if he will not attack Iran, now that Russia has sent its first nuclear fuel to Iran in getting their nuclear power plant up and running.
Some fear the inability to achieve success, since throughout American history no President has ever been successfully impeached. There have been three, Andrew Johnson, the 17th, Richard M. Nixon the 37th and William J. Clinton, the 42nd who have had articles of impeachment brought against them in the house.
Let's take a read of the examples that have gone before session, and compare the egregiousness of them to the present Bush Administration. Responsible Republicans must know that accountability to Law is the foremost prerequisite in maintaining legitimacy and favorable world opinion, along with keeping their jobs with the voting public.
The thought that President GW Bush would spend tax dollars beyond the scope of budgetary constraint as he is doing in making impeachment unaffordable is a clue in itself that he is doing this because he has broken the law, and he intends to make sure no one is able to fix it. He thinks by creating huge deficits for the allocating of money to it becomes a highly exhausted attempt.
We can see that all 3 executed and failed impeachments were after a time of war. Johnson the Vice President to Lincoln took over after the Civil War, stepping in after Lincoln was assassinated.
Richard Nixon was impeached when the door of the Vietnam War was closing and ending, having gained the reputation as being the President who ended the Vietnam War.
And then there is Bill Clinton who was impeached after the Gulf War, yet really from a surprise inquiry when allegations to his sexual misconduct appeared when he was Governor of Arkansas; by Paula Jones. Linda Tripp a friend to Monica revealed his relationship of Monica Lewinsky to Paula Jones prosecutors who questioned Clinton; and which he adamantly lied about. He was caught when her dress contained his DNA evidence. And so impeachment proceedings went forward because of his sex lie, a lie that is far personal in nature and less damaging than other lies told by other prior sitting Presidents.
Now lets take a look at the lies of other sitting Presidents. In fact it is quite astonishing. The pattern I see and I think you will agree is that Presidents who have been impeached are all based on flimsy grounds, actually minor grounds of deceit. And I mean this from the view that most other Presidents lies had to deal with the taking of human lives, yet the 3 failed impeachments had nothing to do with taking lives, other than Nixon's secret Cambodian bombings, which were linked to Vietnam. Yet Nixon did end the Vietnam War.
Harry Truman was a liar
Eisenhower was a liar and a murderer
