Congress Must Debate The Implications Of A Bush Self-Pardon

From USALONE: Many people have been asking us, “Could Bush actually pardon himself?”. Would it be despicable? Sure it would. Would it be shameless and cowardly? Yes, that and that too. But all those adjectives fit Bush like O.J.’s glove before it shrunk from being soaked completely in blood. Which means he is absolutely is planning on doing it.
And only impeachment could stop it. We need to talk about this. We need Congress to talk about this. And Congress is in session this week, so we need you to speak out this week while there is still
Impeach Now Action Page
From Democrats.com: President Bush not to pardon senior administration officials for crimes the President authorized. It notes:
President George W. Bush may have committed crimes involving the mistreatment of detainees, the extraordinary rendition of individuals to countries known to engage in torture, illegal surveillance of United States citizens, unlawful leaks of classified information, obstruction of justice, political interference with the conduct of the Justice Department, and other illegal acts
and that
Bush has been urged to grant preemptive pardons to senior administration officials who might face criminal prosecution for actions taken in the course of their official duties…
Rep. Nadler’s leadership is crucial because he chairs the House Judiciary Committee’s  Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties  and can use his credibility and clout to move the resolution forward either during the lame duck session in December or when the next Congress convenes on January 6.
So our next step is to persuade as many Representatives as possible to co-sponsor H.Res. 1531. Please sign our new petition.
We will be taking off the rest of the week for Thanksgiving. Y’all have a great turkey day.!

At Least, These Guys Aren’t Running An ASSassination Pool

If you can't elect your candidate, impeach the winner...

If you can't beat 'em, cheat 'em...

Well, it’s official–calls for Obama’s impeachment have begun before he’s even spent a day in office. YOU HEAR THAT, NANCY PELOSI??? You didn’t want to be divisive? Well, here’s the people you didn’t want to drive away–the ones who are willing to drive away a validly elected President before he’s even had the chance to be corrupt or incompetent. The least you can say is these guys aren’t racially prejudiced–they hate anyone who isn’t Republican regardless of race, color, creed, gender, sexual preference, or … well I can’t say national origin because that’ll probably be their argument: that Obama wasn’t legally elected because his original Hawaii birth certificate is missing and he can’t PROVE he’s a natural-born American citizen (despite having an American citizen mother). At least they aren’t calling for his assassination (or “merely” running pools for one). Quite frankly, with all the death threats he’s already received, I wouldn’t take bets against some gun-toting Mer’can patriot taking a potshot at the “Communist Nazi Muslim N-word whose minister hates America.” It may turn out that the one thing the Bush Leaguer did right was to allow his paranoia to demand increased security for the president…not for him, but for his successor. Some of us are going to be living on pins and needles for the next 4 years.
