DNC Elects Bush as New Majority Leader

Time to wake up: Ref The President has induced the DNC leadership to believe that debate is "healthy" while the GOP Senators enact the real President's position: No debate.

* * *

If the DNC leadership doesn't understand the slight of hand, they shouldn't be trusted with appointing the President as the new DNC Majority Leader in both chambers of Congress.

Focus on their actions, not their words: They are tyrants, posing as defenders of values they refuse to exercise.

Just because someone lets you ask a question, it doesn't mean you're powerful. In the case of the DNC leadership, it means you're a dupe.

With this President, answers mean nothing: He's only interested in whether he's going to be convicted of war crimes. Everything else is yesterday's news.

Force the GOP leadership to go on the record with a trial in the Senate: Are they, or are they not going to remove the President for war crimes. Until there's a trial, all Presidential visits, talks, and discussion should be considered a delaying action.

Accelerate the time line, shift the debate from Iraq [the symptom], and focus on the problem: The President's war crimes and impeachable offenses warranting removal, and subsequent prosecution.

Read Federalist 77:

But these precautions, great as they are, are not the only ones which the plan of the convention has provided in favor of the public security. In the only instances in which the abuse of the executive authority was materially to be feared, the Chief Magistrate of the United States would, by that plan, be subjected to the control of a branch of the legislative body. What more could be desired by an enlightened and reasonable people?

One response to the question in Federalist 77: A Congress that does what it promises in its oath: Using all options, including impeachment, to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution.

Taking impeachment off the table defies the Framer's explicit intent in Federalist 77; and contradicts the explicit guarantees We the People were given as a basis for us to approve and agree to be bound by this Constitution.

As with Hamdan and Geneva, Congress needs a reminder about requirements. Protecting the Constitution against a tyrant is a requirement, not a discretionary item. We have the legal right to be bound by a New Constitution that compels Congress to act, not make excuses to do nothing.
