    There was a Democratic House from 2007 through 2010.  Impeachment is a House responsibility.  The Justice Committee was controlled by the Democrats.  

    In 2007, Democrats enjoyed a 256 to 178 majority in the House.  

    Polling, at the time, showed Americans supporting the impeachment of both Bush and Cheney.  Democrats decided to take impeachment off the table.  Pelosi never once pushed for investigation into the events leading up to the Iraq war.

    Unlike the Senate which has rewritten the rules to require 60 votes to pass anything, the House is a simple majority vote.  And the Democrats were in the majority.  

    The Democrats also didn't control the loudest mouths in the press during Bush's terms either.
    Honestly, I've been reading about the biased press since LBJ was president.  It's an excuse used by people who need a handy scapegoat.  That way, politicians don't have to do what they don't want to do anyway.  

    By the time 2007 rolled around, the "bloom was off the rose" for the Bush administration.  It was Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Steney Hoyer who chose not to investigate.
