I'll list some of the common objections, then, I hope you'll add comments listing some more, with your reply, countering them. And also, please add your comments adding to the counter-arguments I provide, which for the sake of time, I will keep short.
1- That will give us Cheney as president.
Well, of course, we have to impeach Cheney first, but we can and should be INVESTIGATING both.
2-Not enough time. Cheney and Bush will be out of office in 14 months. Why bother?
Lots of reasons. They committed crimes. Investigations will turn up more ugly dirt. Investigations will turn up new, fresh witnesses who will roll over and testify against Cheney and Bush.
3- Impeachment will not succeed in the senate.
Investigations can last until November, if necessary, and they will hurt the right wingers still supporting Bush and Cheney. Gradually, more will see the light, like Hagel.
4- The Dems will be accused of wasting time.
So what. They're already being accused of that. It's a lame, weak, unacceptable argument.
5- There's no clear proof
That's what hearings are for.
Okay, hopefully, I've primed the pump. This is the kind of thing that can be put in a pamphlet, once it's done and handed out all over. What are you waiting for? Add your comment.
