It’s nothing new… people with strong anti-Bush views have been calling for his impeachment, no matter how misguided it might be, for a very long time.
Before it was Democrats and Liberals calling for it.

Now… a republican is stating the country should/might consider impeachment…

An article in Esquire magazine explains how Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) has suggested that Congress may consider impeaching “President” Bush before his term ends. In the article, Hagel is quoted as saying; “The president says, ‘I don’t care.’ He’s not accountable anymore. He’s not accountable anymore, which isn’t totally true. You can impeach him, and before this is over, you might see calls for his impeachment. I don’t know. It depends how this goes.”

These are not words from a Democratic senator from a blue state… this is from a republican in a state that is decidedly red…

It seems as though Sen. Hagel is a tad frustrated… and he’s not the only one…

The desire for this administration to show any sort of accountability is leading to increased chatter about calls for impeachment, including the Washington State legislature, the mayor of Salt Lake City, and 35 towns in Vermont.

No, that wasn’t a misprint… thirty-five towns in the state of Vermont want to see Bush impeached… when was the last time that happened?

This post isn’t so much about impeachment as it is about the ever-shrinking abilities of this president.

No matter what you call it; power, clout, support, trust… this president is losing his grip on how much strength he can now wield.

We know people don’t trust him to see the war in Iraq to an end… we know the public doesn’t trust him to solve the healthcare dilemma or the social security dilemma in this country… his overseas allies are distancing themselves… a member of his White House has been convicted of lying… and his foreign and domestic policies can barely get off the ground.

This president has lost the support and the trust of his country (and to a lesser extent his military)… how in God’s name can he govern???
