  •  Congressman Conyers... (5+ / 0-)

    ... I sincerely hope that what I'm about to say doesn't come across the wrong way. It is certainly not my intention to appear pessimistic, demoralized or negative about what will happen after the elections, but inherent skepticism forces me to contain my enthusiasm.

    I suppose, (like all of us on the left) that what I'm searching for is solace, reassurance if you will, that the candidates, the congress will perform their constitutional duty to begin investigations into the hijinks (patently understated) of this administration.

    You, sir... must take the lead in this dark, arduous endeavor.

    Although retribution is certainly a warranted reason for these investigations to go forward, as every American citizen -- in one way or another -- has felt the repercussions of this administration's bizarre, immoral policies, it is for a far more significant purpose that I seek this reassurance.

    It's called the U.S. Constitution.

    If we the people (and of course by proxy, you) simply do nothing, turn the cheek; let bygones be bygones, we will set a precedent that future presidents will exploit to perhaps greater lengths, even tyranny itself.

    In order to avoid this grim prognostication, we must do this.

    There's no doubt in my mind that impeachment hearings will be called a distraction by the right. They will condemn the process as "A witch hunt!" and  say "They're avoiding doing the people's business to get revenge on a disliked president." But to that I would say "Conducting impeachment hearings IS the people's business, the most important people's business in our long, storied history."

    This cannot stand in America.

    You must do this; it is your constitutional duty.

    Please, do not let us (America) down.

    Thank you for all that you do, and that includes participating in our conversation here.

    Bush isn't inept... he's delusional!
