Bush supporters are scrambling to limit the damage expected any day now, when Patrick Fitzgerald, the Special Prosecutor, announces his indictments. Several top aides to the pResident and veep are expected to be named, and Cheney may be on the list. According to John Dean, who was Nixon's lawyer when the Watergate indictments were handed down, a sitting president cannot be indicted; he must first be impeached by the House and convicted and removed from office by the Senate.

The Republicans are making every effort to preserve the Bush presidency. First, it's the usual smear campaign- these mean old prosecutors are "criminalizing politics", and they aren't perfect, either- though no serious dirt has turned up on Fitzgerald. Next comes damage control- the indicted people should resign and be replaced by "trustworthy" Republicans- James Baker? The indicted ones will fight the charges, of course, saying they are "trivial", "blown out of proportion".

All of this begs the basic question- is the occupant of the Oval Office guilty of a crime? The answer seems obvious- Bush knew early on about Rove's involvement, and evidently lied about it on several occasions.

But there is, as yet, no motion in Congress to investigate whether Bush has committed impeachable offenses. Why not? It is still up to "we the people" to call our Congresspeople and demand justice. Politics these days is not a spectator sport. God, the God of justice, acts through those who have ultimate authority. Under the US Constitution, that's us.

Psalm 68: 2
God arises; His enemies are scattered,
and those who hate Him flee before Him.

Let's drive ALL the criminals from office, starting with the guy at the top- George W. Bush.
