The GOP says it: impeachment
Just to keep up with what goes on over at the Republican headquarters, I'm signed up for the GOP.com email newsletter. Imagine the surprise when an email from GOP chairman Ken Mehlman with the subject "Impeachment?" arrived. Looks like the good-ol'-boys might be a bit frightened:
The word is out. Their position is clear. Last week, Sen. Russ Feingold floated a reckless plan to censure the President, and some Democrat leaders have ecstatically jumped on Feingold's bandwagon.
And, if they gain even more power in November, they won't stop there.
Feingold says that censure actually represents "moderation" and calls the terrorist surveillance program an impeachable offense. Dick Durbin, the number two Democrat in the Senate, fails to rule out impeachment if Democrats retake Congress. Iowa Democrat Tom Harkin is talking "high crimes and misdemeanors." And 31 House Democrats are calling for a committee to look into impeachment. Their leader? John Conyers, who would become House Judiciary Committee chairman under Democrat control.
The Democrats' plan for 2006? Take the House and Senate, and impeach the President. With our nation at war, is this the kind of Congress you want?Actually, yes -- yes, it is. To send a letter of support for Feingold to your local newspaper, check out MoveOn's campaign.
