teacherken weighs in

altho' he says he's not yet ready to call for impeachment, he's still pretty forceful in the case he makes...
I believe that we now have a very narrow period of time in which the Congress can reassert its rightful role as a coequal branch of government. It has been clear for several years that this administration does not believe that it should be subject to any constraints it is not willing to impose on itself. From observing its behavior as far back as the 2000 campaign, it is clear that it is willing to go to any lengths it deems warranted (which means to any lengths necessary) in order that it can claim that its power has not been restricted.


This Congress was elected to restrain this administration, especially but not exclusively in its military adventurism. It cannot fulfill its responsibility to the American people until it is willing to act much more directly.

here's what i think needs to happen... a bipartisan group of congressional leaders, the joint chiefs of staff, at least one supreme court justice, and two or three prominent and respected members of the private sector community both d and r, demand a visit with george and dick, and recommend that they both resign, along with their cabinet heads, for the good of the country... we are way, way beyond this being a dem or a repub issue, and we do not have the luxury of waiting for an impeachment process to grind its way forward... pelosi could take over and run what would essentially be a caretaker government until the 2008 election... this needs to be done soon, preferably yesterday...
