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.
