73. Impeachment could only be viewed as partisan BEFORE an investigation.
Edited on Fri Sep-01-06 09:24 AM by PBass
Seems like maybe people are leapfrogging the whole investigation/hearings aspect, that would have to come first.

You read DU, you are probably up on the various ways Bush has broken (and openly flaunted) the rule of law. Most people are not as well informed as you. One of the benefits of an investigation and hearings, would be that the public would learn how the laws have been broken.

At that point, in my opinion, impeachment would no longer be partisan, it would become bi-partisan. As this information filters out, I believe there are right-thinking Republicans who would have the decency to support impeachment.

One reason I believe this, is because I am firmly convinced that the administration has been illegally spying on political enemies (the Democrats) and not just "the terrorists". I believe that would be revealed, in an investigation.

Also- the President lying to Congress (during the run-up to the war) cannot possibly be viewed as a partisan issue, by anyone who is sane.
