    Like other polls, I think yours is slanted. Perhaps if you had asked;
    I disagree with Bush's foreign policy but agree with domestic.
    or:
    I disagree with Bush's domestic policy but agree with foreign.
    But, slanted polls are obvious.

    I am not sure what the poll options have to do with the article.

    Bush handled the situation in Indonesia correctly. I am certain that the Secret Service advised the White House on the safety (etc) of the President during this trip. I doubt the trip was done in a careless way, it was probably all very well planned.

    Do you think Bush is still doing a good job as the Leader of this Country?

    ==Not really. He has become a big government president and he has become a nation building president. I can't support either, I don't care if you are GW Bush or Hillary Clinton.

    Do you think they will ask for impeachment of Bush & Cheney?

    ==No. The democrats want to be seen as working for the people over the next two years. Don't forget they want to win the White House and both houses of congress in '08. They know they will not get there if they spend the next two years trying to impeach Bush/Cheney.

    Also they don't have any constitutional reason to impeach Bush (see below).


    And do you think Bush & Cheney should be impeached?

    ==Not according to the United States Constitution.

    Please remember that the United States Constitution lays very clear guidelines for this.

    A president can't be impeached just because we don't like/agree with his/her policies.

    A president can't be impeached for poor decisions or job performance.

    A president can't be impeached for low approval ratings.

    A president can't be impeached just because he/she is in the opposite party than we are.

    A president can only be impeached if...

    Article II, Section. 4. The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

    Bush is not guilty of any of those crimes and therefore cannot be impeached. He maybe guilty of being a poor president but that is not a high crime or misdemeanor. There have been many poor presidents.


    Do you think Hillary Clinton will run for President & if so would you Vote for her?

    ==Yes and No.

    Bush has not broken any law. Hard to break the law when you own the Supreme Court. Doesn't matter who is the next president. Nothing is going to change except the fluff.

    At times yes, and at times no. He's the President of the United States of America, a job that I cannot fathom the difficulty and far-reaching implications thereof. I cut him as much slack as possible, as I did his predecessor whom I didn't like at all. There's a difference between liking the guy and supporting him as the president. I pray for PGWB every day, and will continue to do so as long as he is our chief executive.

    "They" being Congress? No, not if they are interested in getting anything done. It irks me that some of these people in Congress spend all their time spinning their wheels on these types of issues, when there's real ones at hand.

    No. I don't see that they've done anything to deserve it.

    Yes, most likely she will run. No, I wouldn't vote for her if she were the only candidate running.

    I am with Martin on this one. Bush and the republicans have failed to lead, but nothing impeachable. If you think electing a democratic congress is going to help, just sit back and watch for the next two years. Democrats are as shallow if not more so than the ones they replaced.

    Do you think Bush is still doing a good job as the Leader of this Country?

    So far, he has ended up doing a fairly mediocre job overall. Not bad like Carter and his dad, but certainly not good like Reagan and FDR.

    Do you think they will ask for impeachment of Bush & Cheney?

    I certainly hope the looney tunes go for it. It will insure that their majority is short lived.

    And do you think Bush & Cheney should be impeached?

    Of course not. That would be stupid. The only ones who want to impeach Bush are terrorists, liberals, and looney tunes nuts.

    Do you think Hillary Clinton will run for President & if so would you Vote for her?

    I wouldn't vote for her to be dog catcher. But yes, she will run and I think she will win.

    I see a change in Bush , maybe it is because he is putting away his pride and is more willing to be open to the advice his father . We'll see how the next two years turn out , I am somewhat more optimistic about his performance as President than I have been for some time.

    I wonder what will be discovered when and if Congress has hearings on the surveillance program, and whether or not the FISA laws were broken.

    But I doubt that there will be any hearings.

    That's right, but it won't necessarily keep him from being impeached.

    Impeachment is a political process and democrats hate for Bush is their driving force. They want revenge for the beatings he has administered to them, but most of all...

    they want to avenge the impeachment of Clinton, who actually did break the law.

    The purpose of this thread is obviously to gather support for Bush's impeachment. He has done a bad job of governing, as did the last Congress, but they paid the price. Bush has done nothing impeachable. Why is it some people go beyond disliking the man's policies and turn it into a personal hatred of the individual? That makes no sense. His presidency is pretty much over, kind of set in stone due to for the most part, his and congress's own actions. Why continue to attack him and ask for impeachment. He has already made his own circumstances, so let it play out, and leave the man alone.

    ==I don't think there will be any serious hearings since the democrats want to win in '08. Btw, just because the FISA laws "may" have been broken does not mean there are grounds for impeachment. Keep in mind the very high standard set by the United States Constitution on this matter...

    Article II, Section. 4. The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

    You're right. Asking whether you think that Bush is still doing a good job infers that he at some time in the past did a good job. The poll is biased.

    I think they'll be merciful with Bush. It seems clear that some laws have been broken, with his knowledge, but what matters now is to pull the nation back together, and put things right.

    That should take priority. Investigate and get all the dirt exposed, but don't impeach him.

    Bush is doing a good job as leader of the country. However, he brought this political defeat by the liberals on himself by his refusal to stop the hugh spending increases that put him in the category of Lyndon Johnson or Richard Nixon as a big spender. Also, the GOP became corrupt and would not expel all sodomites from their ranks. Bush is no longer able to lead because he has lost all political power. He is finished.

    Yes, some Democrats will seek to impeach Bush and Cheney. Many Catholics agree with the late Pope that the war is immoral and that will be the reason for the impeachment attempt. Also, the Constitution Party calls the war illegal so the far-right will join with the left on this issue. The major reason for an impeachment attempt will be the natural desire of Democrats to cut and run in Iraq as they did in Korea and Viet Nam. The second thrust of the Democrats will be to raise taxes in order to kill the economy by punishing the GOP. More welfare will be extended to the usual Democrat groups such as Blacks, Hispanics, and Sodomites. This is also what the Catholic Church wants.

    No, Bush and Cheney should not be convicted or even impeached but the Democrats want to use impeachment as a political tool even if there is no crime per se. Bush saved the country but the Democrats are ashamed of nationalism and want an international government. The Democrats want the West to be destroyed.

    Hillary is clearly top dog in the Democrat Party. She should have the nomination for the asking. Hillary's agenda is the destruction of the United States by surrender to the Arabs and withdrawal from the Arab oil countries, the raising of taxes to destroy the middle-class and the capitalist economy, and the burning of Bibles and the destruction of churches. Catholics, trying to destroy religious freedom which The Vatican hates, and the religious left will join in the attempt under Hillary to destroy Protestantism once and for all.

    I have not been pleased with Bush's presidential stint. Actually, I can't say I've been incredibly happy with anyone who has been president during my adulthood. Like Joshua, I'm gonna pray for whoever has that loathsome job.

    I don't think Bush has done anything impeachable.

    I think that Hilary will run. I doubt I'd vote for her.

    Just exactly what has Bush done right? I think he has been a total, abject failure, the worst President in American history.

    President Bush put a couple of good justices on the U.S. Supreme Court, a bunch of good judges on the lower courts, and cut taxes(although I would have preferred that they had been directed more toward the middle and lower classes).
