A majority of Americans favor Cheney's impeachment, split on Bush

A new survey by the American Research Group found that 45 percent of Americans support the U.S. House of Representatives beginning impeachment proceedings against President Bush (46 percent are opposed, making it a statistical tie) and 54 percent favor impeachment when it comes to Vice President Cheney! I guess the idea isn't as crazy as the MSM seems to believe.

In late April, Ohio Rep. and presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich introduced a resolution calling for Cheney's impeachment. To date, the measure has nine listed co-sponsors and a 10th set to sign on when the House returns to work next week. It'll take a grassroots groundswell of support to get Democratic leaders to hold a vote though. Also, Rep. Henry Wexler has said he'll introduce a resolution in the House to censure Bush over the Libby pardon.

Meanwhile, Newsweek has released a new poll showing that only 26 percent of American approve of Bush's job performance. The only two presidents to reach a lower level of support in the history of the poll are Nixon and Truman. Btw, 64 percent disapprove of Bush's commutation of Libby's sentence so that probably didn't help matters much.

Help The Final Push to Impeachment

It's time! is traveling to Washington DC at the end of this month to deliver thousands of Do-It-Yourself Impeachment Memorials to
key representatives in the House!

Support for impeachment is building. As of this writing, 14 reps are supporting Dennis Kucinich's resolution to impeach Dick Cheney (H. Res. 333).

Even if you've sent them to your congressperson before, Click here to send us your DIY Memorials before we go.

You may not realize that the only thing standing between where we are today and a nationally televised impeachment investigation is the House Judiciary passing this resolution, which is currently awaiting consideration in their
committee. The head of this committee, John Conyers, has said recently that he supports the national impeachment movement.

All we need to push it over the edge is public support, and that's where we come in.

Video of our trip will be posted on our website shortly upon our return. We'll let you know when it's up!

Here's a funny video about this unique strategy

Good catch. I can honestly understand why people in the media would make fun of the impeachment idea back during Bush's first term. But now? You'd have to be some kind of raging lunatic (or a Beltway media type) to be dismissive of the idea that lots of people would like to see our President out of office post-haste.
