NM Votes to Impeach BOTH Bush and Cheney

Watch the video.

Resolution passed by the New Mexico state Democrats (Republicans refused to even show, so it was unanimous) to ask the US Congress to impeach both Cheney and Bush.

Republicans called it meaningless and having no significance to New Mexicans. I disagree. I find this enormously important. Everything this president does affects every American and most of the rest of the world. If a b-j rises to high crimes and misdemeanors/treason, I can think of at least 30 things this president and vice president have done that not only reach that threshold, but make ALL previous articles of impeachment pale in comparison. Starting with the Libby trial, I can think of 10 high crimes and treasonous activities alone.

Of course, this congress will do nothing. Pelosi is next in line to the presidency after those two and it would be up to her to bring the articles. I don't think it's out of the question that Cheney could be impeached (and Bush may fall with him), but he would have to go first before they could even start to talk about Bush and by then it would be time to elect someone new anyway. It still burns me though that these criminals will go unpunished.

It did a lot more than nothing! Vermont came very close to a successful state-based impeachment vote, and HR 333 is now being considered by the House Judiciary Committee. I encourage you and your readers to take a few minutes and see:

It's a list of the 25 most recent comments made by real Americans participating in an online poll/letter-writing campaign concerning the impeachment charges recently filed against Vice President Cheney, which are now being evaluated by the House Judiciary Committee. The participation page is at:

Since this campaign began, three members of Congress have signed on as co-sponsors, in part due to hearing from their constituents.
