Of course he should. It is long ago since he passed the limit of what presidents get impeached for today.

It's not a scientific survey. I don't doubt that the majority of people would like to see Bush impeached though. Even the staunchest Bush supporters I work with now dislike him.

This is a ridiculous online survey spiked by activists. Big whoop.

The actual percentage is 32% who want him impeached, as of 2 weeks ago. Probably the same amount who hated him when he came into office. wooooo.

"The number who support impeachment is very similar to the 33% who believe it is impossible for the United States mission in Iraq to succeed."

I guess we know what kind of people support impeachment...

Interestingly enough, 58% of people do not want him impeached, and people said 52-30 that they would be less likely to vote for a Congressperson who tried to impeach him.

:roll:

And for any who might claim the survey is incorrect...it's run by Rassmussen, who was the most accurate pollster in the 2004 election, and was commissioned by a radically anti-bush group.

I suppose there was indeed vote stuffing or something like it, but that was cool to see all the same.

As for the 32% impeachment statistic, that's still one in three Americans who want the president gone not just because they don't like him, but because they honestly believe he has done something illegal. One out of every three people in this country is a big whoop. Very big indeed. That's almost 100,000,000 who want the President on trial. 100,000,000...

How many here think Bush should be impeached?
My good fellow unlawflcombatnt,

I am kina disappointed that the MSNBC-report is not on a good quality paper, since lately, at the White House, we switched from soft
to a cheaper brand
, because of budget deficit.

I'm not big on media polls.. as the consensus has never reached me... nor anyone I know...

However, I don't think Bush should be impeached.

I think he should be arrested and charged with Treason, Obstruction, Extortion, and Racketeering.

Then again I thought Clinton should have been charged with perjury for lying to the nation (and his wife) about oval office fellatio.

I guess I'm just a stickler.

Only 32% of the American people want Bush impeached? Wow, that’s a lot, when you figure that only 25.5% of them wanted him as president in the first place. But then again, this is only representive democracy, not like we should to listen to those idiots in the minority anyway. [/sarcasm]

Owch. Cutting back on the budget that much? Must hurt like the blazes to have to use that when having the runs from too much alcohol. And blowing your nose after snorting a few lines must also be hell. :lol:

I'd like to believe this poll, but even I can't. Maybe some people would presume that I would parade this poll around as proof that Bush should be impeached, but I can't. It's not a scientifically accurate poll. Even if that many people wanted him impeached, this Congress will not allow it. If the Democrats win big in 2006, which I'm expecting they will, there is a shot that impeachment will be discussed, but right now that's not going to happen.

And if he was impeached... Cheney as president would be really frightening.

My good fellow Lefty,

1- Thanks for your support. I hope it is not because I am holding “George Patton’s” dog:


2- Do you think the Democrats have a chance to win by
Twitle De:
or by Twitle Da:
.

Perhaps a third term wise choice is:

alright, you've been warned about this already. All of your posts have been entirely pointless. You're getting formally warned now, and if this happens again you'll be taking a vacation. This is absolutely proposterous.

I'm pretty sure that that is his point... to be absolutely proposterous. Not to mention pointless.

LOL! I love it when people do posts like that! It's hilarious.

I don't have any thoughts thus far in whether Bush should be impeached, which is kind of surprising since I dislike him so much. :shock:

Yeah, 86 million folks.
At some points, roughly as many Americans wanted Clinton impeached.

Again roughly the same as Clinton's #s.

GWB is in about the same impeachment territory pollwise as Clinton was.

So is that the basis of an impeachment? And unscientific poll? BTW Rasmuen's poll was reported last week as 2/3's support the spying, kinda knocks this thread out of th water doesn't it.

If it contents you to think so, feel free. As it's so far outside the realm of what I posted, I'm not sure how to address your comments.

Now that poll wasn't asking the right question, it showed that 68% of people were in support of the spying on terrorists, not in suppport of spying without a warrant. Very big difference. I for example suppport spying on terrorists, I just think our government should get a warrant before they do so.

Currently the only poll that I'm aware of shows that more than half of those polled did not think that the war justifies the surveillence.

Nope

December 28, 2005--Sixty-four percent (64%) of Americans believe the National Security Agency (NSA) should be allowed to intercept telephone conversations between terrorism suspects in other countries and people living in the United States. A Rasmussen Reports survey found that just 23% disagree.


They support what we are doing. NSA doesn't get warrants. If he meant with a warrant as is not being done he would have asked it.

What was the question exactly? Do you have the wording available? AFAICT, what you posted doesn't address the issue of the necessity of warrants whatsoever.

Sixty-eight percent (68%) of Americans say they are following the NSA story somewhat or very closely.
Just 26% believe President Bush is the first to authorize a program like the one currently in the news. Forty-eight percent (48%) say he is not while 26% are not sure.


Eighty-one percent (81%) of Republicans believe the NSA should be allowed to listen in on conversations between terror suspects and people living in the United States. That view is shared by 51% of Democrats and 57% of those not affiliated with either major political party.

Yeah I know the poll, but you aren't listening. The poll doesn't ask about warrants. If it were to be applicable to the warrantless wiretapping scandal it would have to ask: "do you think the government should wiretap suspected terrorist's phonelines without obtaining a warrant?" Since it doesn't ask about the warrants, it just means that this is a poll that asks about wiretapping in general, not the issue at hand. What you are presenting as proof that 68% of Americans support this wiretapping isn't true because of the issue of the warrants!
