    I have heard from a few pundits that if Bush wins the election the Democrats are planning to start impeachment proceedings over the Abhu Grahib incident. And further that this is why a lot of news outlets are trying to keep this story front and center.

    Do you give this any credence??

    I would not put it past them, but what would be the premise? I mean, there was an issue, it was dealt with, they should get over it already.

    I think the idea is to place blame directly on the President personally ordering the torture through Rumsfeld. I know the premise is ridiculous but I can see maybe if the Dems get desperate enough they might keep this one in their arsonal to use if needed. I don't trust them at all!!

    any impeachment proceedings would be useless with a republican majority as well as no direct evidence linking the white house to abu ghraib.

    Nor do I, but DK made a great point. They are still pissed over the Clinton impeachment too.

    In a funny but sad way, it is interesting watching them implode.

    I used to think like DK but for some reason Im much less confident in the idea that good trumps evil especially when the Dems do not play fair (they are corrupt) and have a large part of the media on their side willing to spin a story any way necessary in an attempt to change public opinion. Probably over thinking this one

    Nah I wouldn't say paranoia.........Cynicism, skepticism, caution, with both eyes and both ears wide open, firmly planted in reality...... based on past history...... :tng:

    Oh my, I'm agreeing with DK. I am not at all concerned with impeachment on this...I see no links between the renegade acts of a few morons in the military and Bush. Even if Bush's detractors wanted to pin it on him, it's virtually impossible and I bet cooler heads would prevail.
