I knew it would only be a matter of time before people starting talking about impeaching Bush over allegedly lying to the world about the reasons for the war in Iraq. The comparison to the Watergate scandal is very real, only if it does turn out that Bush was lying there’s more at stake that than just a Presidency. The very fabric of our governmental system may be torn forever.
My stance on Bush is pretty clear. I’m not going to go into it, but will instead let the talking heads play the blame game. If this incident blows up in Bush’s face, it will be very interesting to watch. I mean, we’re not just talking about a blowjob and a cigar here which, in retrospect, was a personal matter that should have remained private. In comparison to this, the whole Lewinsky/Clinton scandal seems quite ridiculous.
If the WMD scandal doesn’t remove Bush from office then the irresponsible tax cut will. It’s not just the average American who is getting frustrated with the Bush administration; the politicians are as well. The bait and switch tactics and unfulfilled promises will catch up to Bush eventually.
