The Unaccountable, Imperial Presidency
Posted by Jill | 7:03 PM

The people in the Bush Administration forgets for whom they work.

Shakespeare's Sister has a photograph of Rep. John Conyers being turned away from the White House gates while attempting to delivery signed by 560,000 Americans who want the President to answer questions.

The holder of this office is accountable to the people, AND yes, to Congress. In refusing to answer to either, he's just putting more fuel on the fire that I hope ends with his impeachment and removal from office -- along with everyone else who participated in this mass deception of the very people for whom they work.

More from ShakesSis:

So what would it mean if this national security president had never wanted to invade Afghanistan, had never wanted to pursue al-Qaida and its leader Osama bin Laden (who remains on the loose to this day)? What would it mean if Iraq, which contrary to administration claims had no weapons of mass destruction with which to harm America or America’s allies, had been the only target all along? And what would it mean if the case for that war had been conceived out of thin air?

It would mean that we all had all been hoodwinked, including our soldiers who had been sent to die by a president who cared not for bringing to justice those responsible for an attack on American soil, and had cared not for the truth. It would mean a national disgrace.

In fact, the now seven total Downing Street Documents provide increasing evidence that that is exactly what happened.

And if that doesn't fall under the definition of "high crimes and misdemeanors", then the phrase has no meaning at all.

Bush & Co. must leave. They have betrayed the American people, they are unfit for office, and they must go.
