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.
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.
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
