A few days ago, I floated a poll on Op-Ed News considering whether Americans and other progressives around the globe still thought President George W. Bush and Vice-President Dick Cheney needed to be impeached. The poll went on-line just as the FBI was arresting and charging the current governor of Illinois with trying to sell the priorities of his office to the highest bidders. By the way, the Illinois Governor, Rod Blagovich, had actually tried to get numerous staff at the Chicago Tribune fired for investigating his prior shenanigans.

While other leaders on the Illinois political scene are considering at this very junction in their state’s history what to do with their sad-sack governor, i.e. who purportedly tried most recently to sell Barrack Obama’s Senate Seat to the highest bidder, some progressives look on in dismay as the Democratic Party-controlled U.S. Senate and House of Representatives.

These progressives look in astonishment at the speed to impeach the Illinois governor while they U.S. Congress has faile to oversee the impeachment of President George W. Bush and Vice-President Richard Cheney on the principal—despite the fact that generations to come in the USA will never understand why nothing was done in the U.S. capitol to stop the worst form of lying in governance and overall neglect and malfeasance witnessed in 220 years of this present constitution’s history.

The poll on Op-Ed news is demonstrating (1) a continued strong interest for impeachment before Bush leaves office in January and (2) discontent at a process whereby a governor can be forced out of office for selling a Senate seat but a President and Vice-President cannot be kicked out of office for selling the country up-a-creak-with-half-a-paddle for well over half a decade.

After one day of being on-line, this particular Poll shows:

--86% of those polled are fully in favor of immediate impeachment of the president and vice-president of the United States of America currently

--10%percent of those polled state that “It might be helpful for various reasons for us and for future generations”

--only 4% percent felt that impeachment now is out-of-the-question.

Talk it up America! I think America deserves much better than what it has been receiving from Washington for many years.  Do you agree that you and your children—and grand children—deserve better from the outgoing Congress? If so, get on the horn today and don’t let up on this do-nothing-congress.

Who knows? If we don’t get the outgoing administration under wraps soon, we may be forced to repeat this 8 year debacle again. This is not the only poll still measuring the pulse of those seeking impeachment in the USA.

Many of the dozens of Impeach Bush websites are concerned with presidential problems and other shenanigans before January 20 comes along.
