75. Here's how not holding hearings could hurt the Democratic party.
>> WIMP FACTOR -- Democratic Party won't act even in the face of the most blatant criminality this nation has ever seen.
>> People could look at the criminal behavior of the Bush administration and ask themselves why the Democrats they elected in 2006 haven't proceeded further with impeachment to hold the administration accountable for its deception and corruption. Don't we pay them to protect the constitution against enemies foreign AND DOMESTIC?
>> Shouldn't our representatives be fighting against war profiteering?
>> Are the Democrats going to be too cowardly to start proceedings and hide behind the fact that his term will be ending in 7 months? They always chicken out. Their guy was impeached for lying about consensual sex and they can't impeach the opposition for lying the nation into war?
>> If our representatives haven't impeached an administration with this huge level of criminality and belligerent negligence, then when will they have the courage to take such action in the future? Aren't they creating a precedent by allowing criminality to go unchecked?
