    I haven't thought that the idea of impeaching Vice President Cheney was a good one but Mr. Utley puts forth some compelling reasons to at least get the process started.

    It would be nice, but, given the time involved even to get the process started, it will never happen, and probably shouldn't. I suspect that, if he goes too far toward war in Iran, Bush, with the help of other party leaders, might do something to rein Cheney in. I think he has been revealed to be a millstone around the neck of the GOP.

    In any case, thanks for the link to the Anti-War web site.

    Good luck with that.:laugh: Is this how you leftists envision, "helping make America great?" More attacks on America, and her leaders?

    These fun little exercises, are designed by the radical leftists now in charge of the Dem. party, and they are using you gullible ones to help elect hillary. You are putting all your efforts into electing, who this week? Oh yes Ron Paul. Why don't you show your support for America by displaying his attributes, instead of joining the Dems in destroying the only party that has a chance of defeating hillary?

    There is no immpeachable offense here. The main factor is there is not enough time left. Time will take care of Mr Cheney and Mr Bush. Being a milstone around the Republicans is not an immpeachable offense. Would I vote for this clown? Nope. I am quite conservative, but also believe in a quality called honesty and ability to govern.

    Do you really understand the term "leftist?" You use it with such frequency, much like many of the GOP shills on talk radio.

    Judging by the fact that you apparently directed this term at KenH, I am inclined to believe that you have no idea what the term means. A "leftist" is not simply someone who doesn't support the POTUS.

    There are more conservatives disguisted with this POTUS than liberals. After all, the liberals have nothing to feel betrayed about.

    Very good. Since you support an executive that holds to the ideology of the political left, are you ready to come out of the closet and admit you are a leftist?

    The border issue certainly could be enough for me. he & his boss have NOT done what they could to protect us from foreign enemies, rather, have given aid & comfort to our enemies, thru their border policies. Giving aid & comfort to enemies is an offense that can get you shot at the stake, during wartime.

    He can state all the "reasons" in the world why it might be a good idea, but there are still no grounds for impeachment.

    The Congress determines what is a high crime or misdemeanor.

    Anybody can simply retrieve a definition. Notice that there is no actual mention of the ideals of the political left. A quick review of your recent posts indicates that you are not really up to speed on the actual "leftist agenda."

    Keep researching, hillclimber1: you'll get there,

    I realize that congress votes on it but high crimes and misdemeanors are based on laws on the books.

    The political price that would be paid for a specious impeachment is one thinking democrats are not willing to pay.

    That doesn't stop the House from bringing articles of impeachment and voting on them. The House is the grand jury for the indictment and the Senate is the jury in the trial.

    My support of The President, is focused on the war against terrorists. I have real problems with a lot of his other stuff.
