Audience Participation - Impeach Bush for . . .

I'll go on record as saying that I am NOT for impeaching Bush as long as Cheney is Veep. Replacing shrub with Lord Vader is not a good move IMHO. But there's no denying that if Congress found its spine, it could go to town with charges.

So to the readers. What would be YOUR #1 reason to impeach Bush? One of these listed alphabetically below? Or tell us yours.

Authorized illegal wiretaps.
Authorized the torture of prisoners.
Conducted illegal wiretaps of American citizens.
Held prisoners without formal charges and without legal representation.
Illegally used government funds for domestic political propaganda, paying commentator Armstrong Williams, etc.
Lied to Congress and the American public about the reasons for invading Iraq.
Misled Congress and the public about Iraq.
Negligent in his response to help victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Shows contempt toward our Constitution and our democratic ideals.
Used uniformed military personnel for Republican party political purposes.
Violated International Law by invading a sovereign country for illegal purposes.
Violated the Geneva Convention by torturing prisoners of war.

i could not possibly choose from that list. My vote would be based on criminal incompetence and mendaciousness all day, every day since September ll, 2001. There is not ONE THING they have done to help the country, in fact their policies may have DAMAGED IT BEYOND REPAIR in both domestic and foreign affairs.

Moville, you've got a good addition. But I'd pick "Shows contempt toward our Constitution & ideals" as my #1 reason to impeach, because so much of what they do flows from their contempt for the Constitution and the American people.

mark, very well put. I think contempt is exactly the right word there. Let me add to the list "serial abuse of history," in view of the unending stream of inapt and outrageously ill-founded comparisons, e.g. the US invasion of Iraq equals World War II, Saddam Hussein equals Hitler, postwar Iraq as postwar Europe...if you wrote a history essay based on any one of those comparisons, or got up at a history meeting and did a paper, you would be flunked out of the class and hounded out of the meeting in disgrace. but somehow, it's okay, even acceptable in some quarters, in our national government(!)

Torture and Geneva violations. It was good enough to nail Hitler's storm troopers, it's good enough to nail these idiots in the White House.
