It's Time To Put Impeachment Back On The Table

It's the independence day holiday weekend. Some people have left for their vacation last Friday. Others, like me, are feeling sleepy and are ready for July 4th holiday. There is something about having a day off in the middle of the week that slows everything down. Tuesday will be mostly useless for getting anything done. Visions of the fireworks and the cookouts are boobing in the average American's head. This is the perfect time for the White House to do something that no one will notice. That's exactly what happened yesterday. George W. Bush commuted the sentence of Louis "Scooter" Libby. Guess what Bush, it didn't work. We noticed.

I was working on something drowsily when the news came over the radio. It barely made a dent in my consciousness ... for about an hour. Then I hit the roof! This has to be the final straw! This has to be it! Ah, come on people, isn't it abundantly clear by now that this administration is full of crooks!

From an article on AlterNet by Michael Roston of Raw Story:
"Scooter Libby Gets Out of Jail Free with Card from President Bush" —

Breaking news reports late on Monday showed that President George W. Bush had commuted the sentence of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, a former top aide who also served as Chief of Staff to Vice President Dick Cheney. An appeal by Libby to stay out of jail pending an appeal of his conviction for committing perjury and other offenses was rejected by a federal court this morning.

It's time for Congress to stop pussy-footing around and open a criminal investigation on this White House. Commuting "Scooter" Libby is yet another attempt to cover up the corrupt activities of members of this administration. Bush and Cheney are flouting the law. They have no respect for Congress and the American people. The blood of every man, woman, and child who has died in the Iraq and Afghanistan war is on their hands. We need to know the whole truth. We need better leadership. We need an Impeachment hearing!
