Hagel on Bush, "You Can Impeach Him"

Nebraska Senator, Republican 2008 Republican Presidential hopeful, and Vietnam Veteran Chuck Hagel expressed his frustration with President Bush’s mulish position in regard to Iraq with the following comments in the April edition of Esquire,

“The president says, ‘I don’t care.’ He’s not accountable anymore,” Hagel says, measuring his words by the syllable and his syllables almost by the letter. “He’s not accountable anymore, which isn’t totally true. You can impeach him, and before this is over, you might see calls for his impeachment. I don’t know. It depends how this goes.”

Well, while I am sure this will go over in many quarters like a case of raw porterhouse at the home of Siegfried and Roy. Sadly, it’s about two years to late. I am no constitutional scholar but I imagine it would take more than the 20 remaining months of Bush’s Presidency to impeach him. A better solution would be to find a way to prevent him from doing any further damage. Maybe if Mr. Hagel spent less time grandstanding and more time consensus building he may be able to achieve that goal.
