I don't think Mainstream Democrats are this clueless but here is the creamy center
In the last months, several organizations, including AfterDowningStreet, Impeach Central and ImpeachPAC.org, have formed to urge Bush's impeachment. But until very recently, their views were virtually absent in the so-called "liberal" MSM, and could only be found on the Internet and in street protests.
As opposed to LAST YEAR when they Advocated his impeachment
or the year before that
The Nation... biased...never.
Public opinion is also growing more comfortable with the idea of impeaching this president. A Zogby International poll conducted this summer found that 42 percent of Americans felt that impeaching Bush would be justified if it was shown that he had manipulated intelligence in going to war in Iraq. (John Zogby admitted that "it was much higher than I expected.") By November, the number of those who favored impeaching Bush stood at 53 percent--if it was in fact proven that Bush had lied about the basis for invading Iraq. (And these polls were taken before the revelations of Bush's domestic spying.)
Lied means he knew he was wrong and did it anyway
proof of that? anyone...anyone at all.
And is LYING Manipulating. No it isn't both are dishonest. but both however are not the same.
Also why is a pollster who has a connection to the Inner circle of the Democratic party (Isn't he a National Committee Memeber still?) given any credibility on partisan polling?
* Rep. John Conyers argued as well that the president committed impeachable offenses" because he and senior administration officials "countenanced torture and cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment in Iraq" at Abu Ghraib, and elsewhere, including Guantanamo Bay and the now-notorious "black sites" around the world.
So bush said "go torture those guys"
proof is? oh yeah also non existant. the black sites are a different issue however and I reserve judgement on that.
but I will leave you with the Nation's cherry on top and a reminder "Moonbats wanting the President Impeached is not news"
There are many reasons why it is crucial that the Democrats regain control of Congress in '06, but consider this one: If they do, there may be articles of impeachment introduced and the estimable John Conyers, who has led the fight to defend our constitution, would become Chair of the House Judiciary Committee. Wouldn't that be a truly just response to the real high crimes and misdemeanors that this lawbreaking president has so clearly committed?
