The latest Washington Post/ABC News poll was published today, and despite record-low approval ratings for Bush (45%), there was no question on impeachment.

I sent the letter below to the authors of the survey - WP's Richard Morin and Dan Balz (morinr@washpost.com,balzd@washpost.com) and ABC's Gary Langer (newspolls@abc.com)
I will post their replies below.

I encourage everyone to write a polite letter of your own and to post any replies you receive.

Gentlemen,

I'm blogging on the reasons why no polling organizations have followed up on the June poll by Zogby which found "42% say they would favor impeachment proceedings if it is found the President misled the nation about his reasons for going to war with Iraq."

http://www.zogby.com/news/ReadNews.dbm?ID=1007

This follows the final report that there were no WMD's in Iraq in 2003. It also follows the revelations in the Downing Street Memos that the "intelligence and facts were fixed around the policy" of invading Iraq.

After the Lewinsky scandal broke, only 26% of Americans favored impeachment of President Clinton. Yet dozens of polls included this question:

In recent days, conservatives like Pat Buchanan have also called for Bush's impeachment.

Can you explain why the Post did not ask a question about impeachment in its latest poll?

Were you asked not to include such a question, either by senior editors or Republican officials?

Bob,

As Ann Coulter already slipped and told us, "We (the Republicans) now have the media."

That's why there are no polls or press coverage or any meaningful and productive motion towards the truth about Bush and a real movement to impeach and remove him.

Bush perpetrates dozens of illegal crimes and deceit and no one challenges him. Clinton has a slice of pizza and a "little on the side" and the conservatives try to string him up alive!

What's wrong with this country?!

America? Are You Finally Awake...

George W. Bush had it all planned out. September the 11th was close, he was brushing up on looking demure and grim. Well, Mr. Bush, you moron, look what you have done to this country. Our America. You have ruined this country, you have spent all of the money we have, we don't have the soldiers to help us in this great time of need. Your 9/11 looks like a walk in the park compared to this devestation.

You stupid stupid man, you have left us so vulnerable because you wanted to play cowboy and go to war.

I have never hated anyone in my life. But I hate you Mr. Bush. I hate everything you stand for. Mr. Bush, the world finally understands what you have done. YOU ARE HATED AROUND THIS WORLD FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE.

You can't leave office soon enough. I fear how much damage you will do in the meantime.

How long did it take for you to look worried from the airplane? HOW MUCH ARE YOU GOING TO SELL THOSE PHOTOS FOR AT YOUR NEXT FUNDRAISING. YOU SOLD THE PICTURES OF YOURSELF DURING 9/11....TO RAISE MONEY TO SUPPORT YOUR AGENDA. YOU SICKO

MR. BUSH YOU HAVE DONE SO MUCH DAMAGE TO THIS COUNTRY WE MAY NOT SURVIVE.

BRING OUR TROOPS HOME, I KNOW YOU LOVE THAT OIL, I WISH YOU COULD BATHE IN THE STUFF, BUT AMERICANS NEED HELP AND ALL OF OUR GOOD MEN AND WOMEN ARE FIGHTING A WAR YOU STARTED.

CALL FOR COMPLETE AND TOTAL TROUP WITHDRAWAL, LEAVE THE TANKS AND WEAPONS AND LET THOSE IRAQI'S KILL EACH OTHER IF THEY WANT.

YOU LIED ABOUT THIS WAR AND YOU GOT CAUGHT. DO THE RIGHT THING AND BRING THESE MEN AND WOMEN HOME TO PROTECT THE PEOPLE WHO PAY YOUR SALARY.

YOU WILL NEVER SUFFER A DAY IN YOUR LIFE. YOU WILL NEVER BE BROKE, HUNGRY, SICK, JOBLESS BECAUSE YOU ARE A SPOILED BRAT, A BRAT WHO HAD TO CHEAT TO WIN AN ELECTION.

BRING THE TROOPS HOME TO PROTECT OUR PEOPLE. BE A MAN, DO THE RIGHT THING. MY WORDS MEAN NOTHING TO THIS SOB.

GEORGE W. BUSH DOESN'T GIVE A FLIP ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON IN NEW ORLEANS. HE JUST WANTED ANOTHER PHOTO OP.

I AM SICK OF YOUR SMIRK, YOUR GUITAR PLAYING, YOUR STUPID LOOKING DANCING, LIKE YOUR A TEXAN, YOUR NOT A TEXAN, YOUR FROM MAINE, I AM SICK OF YOUR TRASHY FAMILY, YOU HAVE SPENT ALL OF OUR MONEY, WE CAN'T FUND THE GULF COAST DISASTER BECAUSE YOU HAVE SPENT IT ALL.

BUSH, YOU SHOULD BE IMPEACHED. YOU HAVE COMMITTED HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS, YOU, CHENEY, RUMSFELT, AND YOUR TOKEN, CONDI.

I HOPE YOU BURN IN HELL MR. BUSH. TO WATCH THESE POOR PEOPLE CRY, PEOPLE WHO HAVEN'T HAD FOOD OR WATER FOR TWO DAYS BECAUSE YOU SENT OUR MEN AND WOMEN TO IRAQ, THIS DISASTER IS YOUR FAULT MR. BUSH, YOU SPENT THE MONEY THAT WAS SET ASIDE FOR THE ENGINEERING ON THE LEVEES IN NEW ORLEANS, BUT YOUR STUPID WAR PUT THAT OFF.

YOU HAVE PROVEN WHO YOU ARE LOYAL TOO, OIL, SO WHY DON'T YOU TAKE YOUR WIFE AND TWINS AND MOVE TO BAGHDAD, I AM SURE THEY WILL WELCOME YOU WITH OPEN ARMS.

YOU ARE NOT OUR PRESIDENT, MR. BUSH THE WAR IS OVER AND SO ARE YOU.

I HOPE ALL AMERICANS FINALLY SEE WHAT THIS RELIGIOUS MAN WHO TALKS TO GOD IS REALLY ALL ABOUT. HE IS EVIL. HE IS STUPID. HE IS NOT A MAN OF GOD. HE HIDES BEHIND GOD'S SKIRTS WHEN HE TALKS TO THE COUNTRY.

AND LAST BUT NO LEAST, GO TO HELL KARL ROVE. HISTORY WILL HAVE A PLACE FOR YOU. OUTING A CIA INTELLIGENT AGENT TO DISCREDIT HER HUSBAND BECAUSE IF THE TRUTH HAD GOTTEN OUT ABOUT WEAPONS OF MASS DELUSIONS, YOUR LITTLE WAR WOULDN'T HAVE GONE FORWARD.

MR. ROVE YOU WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE, AFTER ALL, AREN'T YOU MR. BUSH'S BRAIN?

You speak the truth, my brutha

The only thing worse than this suck*ss Bush administration is the complete lack of response by the lame*ss Dems. Democratic leadership is a complete oxymoron.

i have to agree...

i wonder how many people in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama who voted for George W. Bush, feel that they are being well served by this Administration?
If they feel that they are after this storm response, then they believe that they are well served in Iraq and on our southern borders. Perhaps, the Mexicans can come and clean-up for a $1.00 an hour under the direction of Haliburton...i am sure that the $71.2 million in cuts to the Army Corp of Engineers in the New Orleans district for hurricane damage and flood prevention could better be used by Haliburton...

This man is not, and never has been our president. He stole TWO elections to do exactly that, "play cowboy and go to war."

Belongs on the front page of the Washington Post!

Better yet, email mail it to Bush!

The reason that he doesn't care is because we have not MADE him care. If everybody takes off on September 24-26 for the peace rallies in Washington or even hosts one in their own city (and organize your local media so that they attend). We need to take a stand just like Cindy did. NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW. NOTHING. THERE WON'T BE JOBS, OR NATIONAL PARKS OR A LOT OF OTHER THINGS IF WE DON'T STOP THE NEOCONS NOW.
