    Most Americans will never believe that their President, who is in some respects just a massive ego projection of your Average American Citizen (that's why we don't like electing smart presidents), is a liar.

    As issues go, this is a nonstarter.  Certainly nothing worth getting one's hopes up over.

      since Nixon resigned only because he was certain that he would be impeached.  And the Watergate episode and subsequent coverup was, in the long run, far more benign in its consequences than those of the Iraq War. I don't think there's  much doubt that even the most lackadaisical Americans would demand impeachment if the media would fully report what they already know.  And this is the key IF.

        to recognize that we lived in a much different country back then.  The desire to lie, cheat, steal and kill for Jesus just wasn't as strong back then.

        But you're certainly right about the complicity of the media in keeping Bush safe.
