CALL NOW-Nancy Pelosi’s office is taking calls (202-225-0100) voting for Impeachment of Bush/Cheney
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 08:48 AM by kpete
Pelosi has what, another week, to see the light or she’ll be campaigning against Cindy Sheehan in the primary. In theory at least.

Someone posted this last night:

Nancy Pelosi’s office is taking calls (202-225-0100) voting for Impeachment of Bush/Cheney. (Say yes or no to the daily poll. It will be forwarded to the Speaker.)

I called last night and got voicemail saying the office was closed and voicemail was full. So I called back this morning, and a real live person answered. I was expecting an automated poll, so I stammered a bit and said I understood they were taking a poll on impeachment of Bush/Cheney and he said that was a rumor, but Speaker Pelosi welcomed comments and he’d be happy to put me thru to the Speaker’s Line, where I could leave a voicemail, and I said absolutely. I left a message, but had I known I was going to, I would have been better prepared.

I got the idea the speaker IS listening, so lets flood her office with calls. I forgot to mention the Moyer’s progrom to the staffer, so I don’t know if she’s seen it. If anyone asks, please post…..hopefully she has by now.

I think this is really important. Make those calls. On Moyers, John Nichols said, Nancy Pelosi is wrong; she’s not following her oath to the Constitution.


Edit to add:

1. more people should call to voice our opinions on this
before they thrust us into another war, we are steps ahead of our own Congress, now is the time to fight back. I have already called and left a message with Pelosi. These Dems cannot put us on the back burner. Enough is Enough

2. I Just Now Called - Got A Real Person
A lady answered. I gave my name and city/state location. I said I was calling Ms. Pelosi as Speaker of the House because obviously I was not a constitutent. Then I said - very briefly - that my call was to encourage the Speaker to persue IMPEACHMENT of Cheney and then Bush. I asked that my name be added to the list of those in favor. It didn't take 15 seconds, I doubt that it cost me more than fifty cents. Maybe you can afford the time and the money as well.

3. Wow!!!!! Got a REAL person on the line!!!
Left my message!!!

..."Ms. Pelosi, please put impeachment back on the table, the American people are
starving for justice in the White House. Please consider it, Cheney needs to be
taken out first as he is pushing for another un-necessary war with Iran. The people
who elected you want this, what are you waiting for? Thank you...."

Tried to keep it short, and to the point.

6. I've called her office several times.
i've written. never got a response (unlike Barack, Dick Durbin, both of whom write back within a week) I really am beginning to think that she just doesn't care what we think and she will not change course. No impeachment, not enough time, not enough support, therefore, she won't even try.

13. but what are Dems afraid of, do you think they know
they are dealing with some sick SOB's, and they know Cheney is behind this all? Impeachment is the cure for a constitutional crisis. Great line.

7. I also called and was put right through to the message line.
I suggested they watch Bill Moyers' show of last Friday night, as it said exactly what the people are trying to get across to you. That the VP and Prez need to be removed by whatever method is best and expedient. We cannot continue in the direction we are presently headed.

8. Thanks, I will call,
I will call as I've done previously.

Impeachment proceedings against both Bush and Cheney would potentially put the Speaker of the House in line for President. This is something that needs to be addressed up front to defuse what would appear as self-serving move for Pelosi. You can almost hear the Bushies now saying that impeachment is being done only to get Pelosi in power. Even though her potential term of office would be very short based upon the 2008 elections in less than 17 months, it would need to be defused by agreeing to some sort of temporary co-Presidency such as Pelosi and Boehner in the event Bush and Cheney are found guilty by the Senate. It would of course have to be Constitutional which may be the rub.

9. Thanks for the phone # kpete.
Just called, a real person answered and I left a message. Told Ms. Pelosi that the American people need action right now.

I hope her staff is up all night listening to thousands & thousands of messages from real people who are sick and tired......damn sick and tired.

12. Done. I also got to speak with a staffer. She advised that
I should, in addition to making my comments to her, leave a voicemail so that my comments would be recorded. Thanks to kpete I was able to cite the relevant portion of the US code which Bush (and Miers) violated, amounting to obstruction of justice.

kpete's thread on the code is here:

14. Thanks for the phone number
I left a message:

"Ms. Pelosi, I love you, but I believe you're wrongheaded on the matter of Bush and Cheney's impeachment. When you have the power to punish deliberate executive abuses of the Constitution but fail to do so that makes you an accessory to their crimes. Please treat our Constitution as more than just paper, and save yourself some historical embarrassment, too. We need you. Thank you."

15. And when you call, please mention the need for Single-Payer Healthcare
Edited on Mon Jul-16-07 09:45 AM by RedEarth
....provided, you believe in Single-Payer Healthcare. If you don't, you might want to go see Sicko.

20. Damned if it doesn'feel good to to make that call,
this is the second time I've called her office and I think the same lady answered both times. couple to 3 weeks or so ago the last time.
Hello, this is David way over here in Oklahoma and I would like to ask Speaker Pelosi to please give some serious thought to impeaching the pRez and the vice-pRez. The voice thanked me and assured me the message would be passed on to Nancy.

22. Locking:
Skinner's note from a previous thread:

"No doubt, if you call they will listen to your opionion -- that is what they do in congressional offices when constituents call. But Pelosi's office isn't taking special poll or tally or whatever on Impeachment.

It appears that this particular email/item has been passed around the internet quite a bit. If you google it, you will find some other places with similar or exact wording, some of it months old.

I am going to lock this."

Thanks for your consideration.
