Impeach Bush

52% of Americans polled favour impeachment hearings for the President if he ordered wiretapping Americans without judicial oversight, which means that 52% of Americans favour impeachment hearings, since he did do that. This includes 33% of people who describe themselves as conservatives. (And in case you're wondering, 36% of people polled in 1998 favoured hearings for Bill Clinton.)

Last week, a Republican polling firm found 39% of people currently support impeaching BOTH Bush and Cheney, with no qualifications.

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