Rep. John Conyers: “Congress Can Fire Bush!”:

In a shot over President George W. Bush’s bow, Conyers said that Bush likes to fire military advisors, who tell him he can’t win the war, but “he can’t fire you [the people]. He can’t fire us [the Congress], but ‘we can fire him.’” With that line a roar went up in the audience. The loud chant began: “Impeach Bush!”

More uneducated non-sense. Too many people, even elected officials apparently, do not know their Constitution:

Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution states:

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

House: draws up and votes on Articles of Impeachment...votes...if yes, goes to the Senate.

Senate: with the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court present, conducts a trial and votes whether guilty or not, with 2/3 needed to remove from office.

Therefore, accourding to the U.S. Constitution, Congress can only draw up and vote on Articles of Impeachement...but can't remove anyone. Only the Senate can do that.....

You need a bit more education too since last time I checked Congress was made up of two houses: The House of Representatives and the Senate. So the Senate is part of Congress.


Congress *can* impreach: The House can start impeachment proceedings and the Senate then either convicts or acquits.

I think

Go back and re-read my post. It is nearly mirror-image of what you wrote.

Mine goes into detail....or go to the link.

Additionally, House reps are called Congressmen/women. Senate reps are called Senators.
