President Bush: Resignation or Impeachment? Your Choice.

May 27, 2005

Dear President Bush,

In the months leading up to your declaration of war on Iraq, you and your administration brought intelligence information to the American people to justify this action. Over 2 ½ years of hindsight have since proven that intelligence incorrect. While many of your loyalists have forgiven you and moved on, I have not.

When Richard Clarke and Bob Woodward both brought compelling accounts to the American people that distinctly articulated how you planned to overthrow the Saddam Hussein regime all along, you dismissed them as liars. After all, they were trying to sell their books. And when Joseph Wilson negated your claim that Iraq was attempting to procure Yellowcake Uranium from Niger, you ultimately chastised the ‘faulty’ intelligence, and somehow his undercover CIA wife was outed.

The recently revealed so-called “Downing Street Memo” is the last straw for me. This is irrefutable, credible, black-and-white evidence that you lied to the American people, and to the rest of the world. To this date you have not responded to the questions asked of you. You have not provided an explanation for the statement that you “…fixed the facts around the policy…”. You have not dismissed Tony Blair and his Intelligence team’s information as untrue or false. You have not, because you cannot. You lied, and your lies have caused a war, and cost countless lives. The impact of your lies has been nothing short of catastrophic.

Mr. Bush, it is time for both you and the Vice President to tender your resignations for the good of our country. Barring that, I would encourage the American people to urge their Congressional representatives to call for your impeachment. Certainly the crimes you have committed are far worse then that of Bill Clinton’s extra-marital affair. Your lies have cost over 1,600 American lives to date, and countless Iraqi / Muslim lives. Your lies have cost American goodwill and fueled anti-American sentiment. Your lies have bankrupted our treasury, tortured our prisoners, disgraced our reputation, and decimated many foreign alliances.

The quagmire of Iraq is just the tip of the iceberg of the damage you have caused our country, not to mention the rest of the world. Terrorism, tensions, and conflict are at an all time high in the Middle East and around the world. And to date you’ve neither accepted any responsibility nor feel that you’ve done anything wrong. Clearly you are out of touch with reality, and the people in this country know it as is reflected in your all-time-low approval ratings. You’ve completely lost credibility and that has severely impacted your ability to govern.

Please do our country a favor and move on.
