I think bringing up impeachment proceedings was the right thing to do. It was unfortunate that it was politicized and wasn't based on principles.

I'm just defending the media's reporting on the Bush administration, granted I don't think they're doing a good job of it.

He most certainly deserved it. I think the fact that he was well liked by dems clouded the fact that he did deserve it.

No, Andrew Johnson was nearly impeached in 1868.

True. My only point was that past Presidents haven't had to "sleep in the bed they made" because times were different.

It was my understanding that only two presidents went through impeachment and that's Nixon and Clinton. I never heard anything about Johnson.

FYI. The wiggle your big toe comment from Kill Bill was actually a Quote from FDR after he was recovering from poliomyelitis. Just thought you might find that interesting.

Re: The legacy of 'W'?

As I understand it, NO President has ever been impeached. There have been impeachment trials, but no President has ever been impeached. Like Firstdown said, Nixon's impeachment was inevitable, so he resigned beforehand.

Back in 1867-68, somewhere around there the House impeached Andrew Johnson. But the Senate didn't convict him

Re: The legacy of 'W'?

Didn't the same thing happen to Clinton, or was he acquitted at the House level? Either way, both were acquitted, and that doesn't constitute impeachment because they were not removed from office.

I think you're confusing impeachment with conviction. Impeachment merely means formal charges have been brought, similar to an indictment. Impeachment is merely the first step toward removal from office.

JoeRedskin, can I get an Amen?
