Impeachment hearings would destroy the Republicans
Imagine, day after day of congressional committees splashing BushCo's crimes all over the media, with nobody but furious fat RW ideologues trying desperately to cover it up. They would look SO BAD!!!
Any Democrat who doesn't demand this justice from our Congress, which is constitutionally obliged to do this anyway, is cravenly hiding his head in the sand. If we don't stop them now, howsoon will they slither back into power? 4 years? Eight?
We can never hold a position on the world stage as long as we don't hold these monsters accountable. We will be nothing more than a third world country with a broken constitution and justice system, ruled by the rich and powerful instead of the people.
Waste of time? With 60% or so of us in favor of impeachment if they are guilty,
what massive resistance will they run into? They point to how unpopular the Clinton impeachment was. OF COURSE AN UNJUSTIFIED IMPEACHMENT WAS UNPOPULAR. WE ARE NOT STUPID!!
The people are CLAMORING for a JUST AND DESERVED IMPEACHMENT INVESTIGATION.
How on earth could investigative hearings hurt the Democrats?
Naturally, Obama and others should recuse themselves from the proceedings. But this has nothing to do with the Presidential election. Except it would make the Republicans look very very bad, and the Democrats, for the first time, look like they are doing their jobs.
