Don't Worry, Democrats Won't Impeach Bush, Democrat Says

By Susan Jones

(CNSNews.com) - "Democrats and liberal advocacy groups have been talking about impeaching President George W. Bush for months. But when Republicans say the president indeed may be impeached if Democrats regain control of Congress, they're just trying to scare people, a Democratic operative says." Full news story.

However, we then have this story:
Bill Would Remove Grounds for Impeachment, Bush Critics Suggest.

Bear in mind:
"House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) said in an interview that a Democratic House would launch a series of investigations of the Bush administration, beginning with the White House's first-term energy task force and probably including the use of intelligence in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq. Pelosi denied Republican allegations that a Democratic House would move quickly to impeach President Bush. But, she said of the planned investigations, ‘You never know where it leads to.’"

Also, the prominent headline on the front page of Conyers’ website use to read (it was removed):
“Stand with Congressman Conyers. Demand an investigation of administration abuses of power and make recommendations regarding grounds for possible impeachment.” The message continues, “I am taking steps against the Bush Administration’s handling of the Iraq War and its warrantless wiretapping. I am going to need you to stand with me in fighting for accountability. Join me to demand the creation of a Special Committee to investigate administration abuses of power and make recommendations regarding grounds for possible impeachment.”

There is little doubt in my mind that this will be foremost on their agenda should they regain control. But they are not going to tout this position prior to the mid term elections. It is not a winning strategy. The kooky impeachment-seeking left is going to vote Democrat regardless.

The Dems don't want to alienate any potential voters with impeachment talk, so they will keep it under wraps for now.
