4. Recent?
I thought it was conducted from Jan. 9-12th. Today is the 23rd. Time for another poll.

Back to CSPAN2.

22. Posted in Vermont Guardian 1-16-06
I noticed that it was posted in the Vermont Guardian on 1/16/06. I guess it was done well before that. Yes, it's time for another poll.

5. This seems significant. Last poll only asked if Congress should CONSIDER
impeachment.

10. This poll uses that same wording
They asked if people think that Congress should CONSIDER impeachment. It seems like a mischaracterization to say that is the same as favoring impeachment. But it still seems to be moving our way.

12. Thank you for correcting me. MISLEADING HEADLINE!
You'd think I'd've learned after the first time. I'll blame it on my head cold. :)

26. Thank you
Glad somebody else recognizes the distinct difference between considering and supporting, head cold or not.

30. "Majority supports impeaching Bush for wiretapping"
I acknowledge the point about "considering." However, the title to the article states "Majority supports impeaching Bush for wiretapping." Those aren't my words, those are the words of the author of the article. (This is one reason I made a direct copy of the article.)

In addition, the 1st paragraph says "By a margin of 52 to 43 percent, citizens want Congress to impeach President Bush if he wiretapped American citizens without a judge's approval,..." Again, these aren't my words, they're a direct quote from the article. Again, I photocopied the whole page so there would be no question about misinterpretation or "misquoting."

31. I understand.
No one's about to blame you. (I did the same myself, for the same reasons as you.) The article's just really poorly written.

14. So when the repug senate and house vote for impeachment;
Oops, I mean when the Dems take over both house and senate in Nov. Oops again, when the powers that be finally agree that there are serious errors in America's vote machines and go to a verifiable hand/paper count, thereby ensuring fair races across America. Oops, That would be trumped by b***'s announcement that he is assuming control for 'the duration' because he says that the Dems are assisting the terrorists and that he could not trust them in power. He enpowers the 50 million NRA members to keep the peace after he declares national martial law. The NRA then becomes a cabinet level seat and the head is given 100% vote of approval from all 100 repug senators, the house havin been dissolved.

15. Please Share and Re-Post
I urge everyone reading this to share this information and re-post it everywhere you can. (Also, copy it down before the plug gets pulled by my image posting service.)

The Zogby poll should take the wind out of the sails of those who maintained that the previous MSNBC poll that I posted was "unscientific." Let's see someone claim that the Zogby poll is "unscientific." Even 29% of Republicans want Congress to impeach Bush if he illegally wiretapped American citizens.

Also, not the recent results of the Gallop poll, showing Democrats gaining in strength, as well as Bush approval declining from 51% in January 2005 to 40% at present. See Gallop Poll

16. Thanks for the poll results. Now if we could just get rid of the rigged
voting machines, maybe we could win some elections and save this country from the brink of economic disaster.

17. What I don't get about Bush's argument....

he claims that they're only wiretapping people getting calls from Al-Qaida...why wouldn't a judge authorize this so that it would be legal anyway?

20. you know, that is a fantastic point that gets lost in all the rhetoric
Clearly, any judge WOULD have authorized a wiretap on someone with a known link to Al Qaida who was either making or receiving calls.
Since this clearly would have been authorized by any FISA judge, why did they feel they had to do an end run? Unless, of course they weren't wiretapping only people with known links to Al Qaida. Their arguments make no rational or logical sense.

18. Compared Clinton's being impeached about lying about a BJ - for sure
there have been many more justifiable reasons to impeach this sad excuse for a US. president!

23. Impeachment
Bush has set a record for potentially impeachable offenses. At least one of them should stick.

21. Considering the fact that the whole thing has been either misreported or
under reported or not reported at all - I think this is very encouraging. I think the White House reads it the same way, else why would they be going on this goodwill tour for wiretaps?

If you think things are bad, wait till Cheney becomes
the president. And now I can't even move to Canada. They
just elected conservatives.

25. Yup.....
As satisfying as impeaching Bush would be, everyone seems to forget we would get Dr. Evil as the booby prize. Though they both sit around thinking of ways the CIA can enhance torture, Dr. Evil is smart, and Bush is stupid. It's a hard choice, but I think stupid is less dangerous when combined with the personality of the Antichrist. :evilgrin:

28. Isn't Cheney an accomplice in Chimpy's malfeasance?
And something tells me he is not out of Fitzy's crosshairs.

No siree, I want Chimpy's legacy to be a huge black stain in our history books... catastrophic war, impeachment... Cherney is already making policy and the Chimp is just a figurehead... I don't see a huge difference if he gets a title.

29. You know that and I know that , but will be very difficult to impeach both
of those evil doers. Wishing is one thing, practicality is another.
Actually I have no faith at all in the partisan repukes letting
impeachment go thru regardless of illegalities.
