    ____________________________________________

    THE MEDIA POLITICS OF IMPEACHMENT

    By Norman Solomon / Creators Syndicate

    Early summer has brought a flurry of public discussion about a
    topic previously confined to political margins -- the possibility of
    impeaching President George W. Bush. The idea is still far from the
    national media echo chamber, but some rumblings are now audible as
    people begin to think about the almost unthinkable.

    A few generations of Americans are apt to view impeachment as
    an extreme step. One factor has been John F. Kennedy's widely read
    1956 book "Profiles in Courage," which captured a Pulitzer Prize.
    The book devoted a chapter to lauding Sen. Edmund G. Ross of Kansas,
    whose "not guilty" vote prevented the Senate from convicting an
    impeached president, Andrew Johnson, on May 26, 1868.

    In real life, Ross -- who promptly put the squeeze on President
    Johnson for a series of patronage appointments -- was hardly the
    idealist that Kennedy's book cracked him up to be. But the chapter's
    melodrama popularized a negative image of impeachment.

    That outlook was especially strong for nearly 20 years, until a
    few of President Richard Nixon's lies caught up with him. During
    many months of the Watergate scandal, throughout late 1972 and 1973,
    defenders of the president routinely blamed journalists. Republicans
    insisted that the Washington Post and some other "liberal" news
    outlets were just trying to make trouble for Nixon -- who, after
    all, had recently won re-election in a landslide.

    While the specter of impeachment grew, Nixon diehards insisted
    that the president was being unfairly targeted -- until released
    tapes of the chief executive made him politically indefensible. When
    Nixon finally resigned in August 1974, the new president uttered a
    phrase that instantly became famous. Gerald Ford told the nation:
    "Our long national nightmare is over."

    That's how the news media have tended to portray impeachment,
    with coverage largely presenting it as an ordeal that involves a lot
    of attorneys and vast piles of legal documents. But impeachment is
    not really about law or even about evidence. It's all about
    politics.

    As a political weapon, impeachment will be used to the extent
    that the president's foes believe they can get away with it. While
    the Constitution speaks of "high crimes and misdemeanors," that
    provision offers scant clarity about standards for impeachment. In
    recent decades, we have seen it utilized as an appropriate tool
    (against Nixon) and as an instrument of political overkill (against
    Bill Clinton). In both instances, the media climate determined the
    possibilities and impacts of impeachment.

    In general, the punditocracy is averse to the option of
    impeachment and reflexively dismisses any such suggestion. Misuses
    of presidential power -- and outright mendacity in the service of
    policy objectives -- are political realities, accepted or even
    avidly supported as long as they remain within vaguely customary
    limits. Few editorial writers or other commentators want to risk
    seeming too far ahead of the media curve by suggesting that the
    latest presidential deceptions might rise to the level of
    impeachable offenses.

    At the height of the Iran-Contra scandal, in 1987, journalists
    frequently made excuses for President Ronald Reagan. There was much
    media talk about the imperative of avoiding another "failed
    presidency" scarcely a dozen years after Watergate. On "NBC Nightly
    News," the venerable broadcaster John Chancellor declared: "Nobody
    wants another Nixon." Chicago Tribune editor James Squires cautioned
    reporters not to repeat the "excesses" of Watergate. And the
    relative restraint of the Washington Post and other outlets was
    symbolized by the fact that the Post's publisher, Katharine Graham,
    often socialized with the president's wife, Nancy Reagan, and
    publicly touted her as a dear friend.

    Democrats in Congress did little to challenge the demagoguery
    of fast-talking Jimmy Stewart impersonator Oliver North -- a former
    Reagan team operative who was greatly assisted by the news media.
    Lieutenant Colonel North held "an entire nation enthralled" during
    his congressional testimony, Ted Koppel told ABC viewers. On NBC,
    Chancellor called it "a terrific performance" that "played in
    Peoria."

    During the Iran-Contra hearings on Capitol Hill, journalists
    frequently reported as though the proceedings would be inconclusive
    unless a Perry Mason style of ironclad proof emerged. Longtime
    political analyst Elizabeth Drew commented on the irony that people
    were "searching for a smoking gun in a room filled with smoke."

    Midway through 2003, there's plenty of smoke as clear evidence
    emerges that President Bush and several of his top foreign policy
    officials lied about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq during the
    lead-up to the war. In this context, impeachment is a reasonable
    idea. But with Congress run by Republicans -- and with news media
    all too deferential to entrenched power -- the chances of a serious
    investigation in Washington are very slim.

    THEY IMPEACH MURDERERS, DON'T THEY?


    Bush Must Step Down
    NEW YORK--George W. Bush told us that Iraq and Al Qaeda were working together. They weren't. He repeatedly implied that Iraq had had something to do with 9/11. It hadn't. He claimed to have proof that Saddam Hussein possessed banned weapons of mass destruction. He didn't. As our allies watched in horror and disgust, Bush conned us into a one-sided war of aggression that killed and maimed thousands of innocent people, destroyed billions of dollars in Iraqi infrastructure, cost tens of billions of dollars, cost the lives of American soldiers, and transformed our international image as the world's shining beacon of freedom into that of a marauding police state. Presidents Nixon and Clinton rightly faced impeachment for comparatively trivial offenses; if we hope to restore our nation's honor, George W. Bush too must face a president's gravest political sanction.....

    "Even Republicans are starting to say the "I" word!"

    "No American should admire and follow a George W. Bush who is now being seriously questioned by people in his own party
    about the real reasons for the war and all the lies he told.."


     
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    http://www.alternet.org/story.html?StoryID=16142

    John Dean:
    "President George W. Bush has got a very serious problem. Before asking Congress for a Joint Resolution authorizing the use of American military forces in Iraq, he made a number of unequivocal statements about the reason the United States needed to pursue the most radical actions any nation can undertake – acts of war against another nation....Now it is clear that many of his statements appear to be false.
    ....Presidential statements, particularly on matters of national security, are held to an expectation of the highest standard of truthfulness.
    A president cannot stretch, twist or distort facts and get away with it....
    ... To put it bluntly, if Bush has taken Congress and the nation into war based on bogus information, he is cooked. Manipulation or deliberate misuse of national security intelligence data, if proven, could be "a high crime" under the Constitution's impeachment clause. It would also be a violation of federal criminal law, including the broad federal anti-conspiracy statute, which renders it a felony "to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose."

     
    ~~~~~~~~~

    Geov Parrish writes:
    "Soldiers are sacrosanct to many Americans, especially conservatives. Now, we have learned, Bush deployed our soldiers on the basis of a threat he knew or should have known did not exist. The unprovoked invasion, conquest, and occupation of Iraq should never have happened... Before and after his secret decision, for at least half a year, his Administration's claims were largely false. If Bush himself didn't know that, he should have. If he did know it, he has lied to Congress -- just like Clinton -- and to America and the world, but repeatedly and on a far more serious matter than the definition of 'sex.' Bush, instead, used his lies to intentionally sacrifice the lives of American soldiers -- along with other coalition soldiers and countless Iraqis, soldier and civilian alike. For this egregious abuse of his oath of office, George W. Bush should be impeached."
