|| IMPEACHPAC IS BORN: Let’s Put the PEACH in Impeachment!|
From Bob Fertick & Democrats.com -- Unity|
A brand new poll that you paid for (see below) reports 53% of Americans think Bush should be impeached for lying about Iraq, while only 42% disagree.
That's what I call a real mandate!
So why haven't Democrats in Congress introduced Articles of Impeachment yet?
[Also: WHIG Inquiry Vote on Wednesday; Stop Funding the War; Bush and Nixon Battle for “Least-Loved" President; Tell Congress to Impeach Bush and Demand Cheney’s Resignation; Urge Senate to Reject Sam Alito; and more…]
I don't know. For months, many of us have called and emailed our Representatives urging them to impeach Bush and Cheney. I know they hear us loud and clear - but they're not responding.
But now that the number of U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq has crossed 2,000, along with countless innocent Iraqis, I'm more determined than ever to impeach Bush and Cheney as soon as possible.
And I believe we can succeed if you'll help me.
Today I started a new Political Action Committee called ImpeachPAC ( http://impeachpac.org ).
Its mission is simple: to raise money for Democratic House and Senate candidates who support the immediate and simultaneous impeachment of George Bush and Dick Cheney for the lies they told to launch the disastrous war in Iraq.
If we can make this a really important PAC - like Moveon or EMILY's List - I am certain many Democrats in Congress will wake up and get busy drafting Articles of Impeachment.
That's why I need your help.
I have set a goal of $100,000 to launch ImpeachPAC. If we can raise $100,000 in a short amount of time - perhaps two weeks - we will send shockwaves through the White House, Congress, and the media too.
They will know we're serious - and determined to succeed.
We unveiled ImpeachPAC.org at noon today by spreading the word across the progressive blogosphere. As I write at 6 p.m., we have already raised $1,000 towards our goal.
I know we can do it. Please join now by clicking here.
YOUR ZOGBY POLL FINDS 53% SUPPORT IMPEACHMENT
Today Zogby published the results of a poll that you paid for (through AfterDowningStreet.org) asking Americans about impeachment.
The results were stunning: By a margin of 53% to 42%, Americans want Congress to impeach President Bush if he lied about the war in Iraq.
In June, when Zogby asked the same question, 42% supported impeachment, while 50% did not. That's an astonishing swing of 19% (from -8% to +11%) in only four months.
If this trend continues, impeachment support will reach 60% in January, 65% in March, and 70% in April. How can an unelected war criminal possibly cling to power when 70% want him impeached?
Still, the overwhelming - and growing - support for impeachment remains the nation's best-kept secret. We can't even get the pollsters to ask the impeachment question unless we pay them. Isn't that an outrage? You can contact all of the pollsters here:

STOP FUNDING THE WAR
Action Alert from Progressive Democrats of America (http://pdamerica.org): Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Massachusetts) has introduced legislation to stop funding the deployment of U.S. Armed Forces in Iraq. The bill would allow Defense Department funds to be used only to provide for: the safe and orderly withdrawal of all troops; consultations with other governments, NATO, and the UN regarding international forces; and financial assistance and equipment to either Iraqi security forces and/or international forces. In addition, the bill would not prohibit or restrict non-defense funding to carry out reconstruction in Iraq. Take action here:
