It's Impeachin' Time 

If the statement sourced to several witnesses in this story is true, then it's time to impeach George W. Bush, for reasons as noted below.

According to the story, when certain GOP leaders pointed out to W that provisions in the Patriot Act could undermine the Constitution, W replied:
“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,” Bush screamed back. “It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”
I remind you of the Oath of Office that every president takes:
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
Said oath is dictated by the Constitution itself, Article II, Section 1. Welp, in one simple statement, Dubya has failed to preseve, protect and defend the Constitution. By calling it "just a goddamned piece of paper," President Numbnuts has done two things: 1) definitely failed to defend the Constitution; 2) demonstrated his lack of any sort of historical education, since the Constitution is a) not written on paper, and b) takes up more than one piece of parchment. (They were scrawling things on the hides of dead lambs back then, dipshit. And there were at least 13 copies of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, since they were ratified by the colonies. But that's probably too much history for your tiny fucking brain, in any case. Might want to find a fourth grader from a non-ID state to help you out here...)

According to the original source, there were at least three witnesses to W's outburst. And I totally agree with the sentiments expressed here.

By openly defying his oath of office, W has lied to America in ways far, far worse than anything Ken Starr could have imagined in his wettest dream about Bill Clinton. What if Abe Lincoln had said that the Constitution was "just a goddamn piece of paper?" What if Nixon had done this? Or, for you conservative mouth-breathers, FDR or Clinton?

Sorry, kids, but it's game over. Time for a special prosecutor endowed with one simple power: find those three witnesses and, if two of them verify the story and quote above, it's time to kick W's sorry ass out of office.

The Constitution, just a goddamned piece of paper? That, my friends, is the single most un-American statement that anyone, anywhere, can make. If, in fact, W made this statement, it's time for him to go. Not just out of office via impeachment, but straight to Gitmo. If the reports are true, then the true hater of freedom is President Numbnuts, and none of us.

BTW, about twenty years ago, I visited a museum exhibition which presented the original Declaration of Independence. The document (despite what you'd be led to believe by seeing "National Treasure") was presented for about thirty seconds at a time, locked behind really, really thick pieces of glass. And seeing it brought tears to my eyes.

Here was a document which declared that people did not have some special right to rule just because of their parentage. A document which declared that all men were created equal...

A document that a certain asshole seems to have ignored. Because, were he to heed it, he'd realize two things. First, "You have no right to rule just because your father had this job first." And, second, "You especially have no right to rule if you hold the Constitution itself in such contempt."

So, what's it to be, W? Will you uphold your oath of office, or suffer the penalty of lying to the American People on two particular January 20th's?

Hm. Blow Job. Trashing the Constition.

Which is the greater crime, again?

A true patriot cries when their supposed leader tramples the Constitution. A true patriot realizes who the real enemy is in such a situation. Advice to my right-wing bretheren: without the Constitution, this country would not exist. And, apparently, W would prefer a country without a Constitution.

Stick that in your pipes and smoke it, will you?

Because, after all, a mountain of lies about a blow job do nothing to defy the oath of office. No president is sworn to "Protect and defend the truth about what happens to my crotch."

But every last fucking one of them is sworn to protect and defend the Constitution.

And, until W, every one of them has.

It is far, far, far beyond time to kick this motherfucker out of office. And January 20th, 2009 is far, far too late. If you love America, if you love this country, if you're truly a patriot -- if you want to make a patriot(ic) act, then, Congresscritters, the only wise, valid, sane choice is this. Impeachment.

Now. Yesterday. Tomorrow. Good-bye to the Nazis in our midst. Good-bye to the ones who truly hate our freedoms. Hint: their names don't start with Al or Hassan or Amir. They begin with George, Dick and Dick.

If you love this country, truly love this country -- then you must protect and defend the Constitution. You must kick these people out of power now.

If you don't, then don't be surprised when the people do it themselves.

After all, that's the true power given us by both the Constitution and the Declaration of Indepence. If you truly love America, then these are the words you must follow:
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
The causes? Our current elected and/or appointed rulers have totally fucked up. One people -- the people of the United States of America -- should find it necessary to dissolve the political bands, and assume the separate and equal station.

If you're a true patriot, this is not sedition. This is freedom. This is what George Washington fought for, and what Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin perpetuated. This is America.

Anything else is... well, it's bullshit. Anything else is...

Say it with me: "The Constitution is just a goddamned piece of paper."

Anybody who utters such a phrase not only shouldn't rule, but should be deported, to a country where they "don't love our freedoms." Hm. Perhaps Iran?

Yeah, that's the ticket. Find W in contempt of his Oath of office, then send his sorry ass off to Iran, and let him enjoy some Islamic Justice. He doesn't deserve the American form. Nor does anyone in his cabinet.

You want to find the true enemies of Democracy and Freedom? Look no further than the White House.

And... do you sense a hint of anger in my tirade above? Good. You fucking well should. Because I love this country. I love the ideals upon which it was founded. And my heart fucking tears in two every single time the assholes who've seized power trample on the sacred documents that have, for nearly two hundred and thirty years, made us the best fucking country on the planet. I may be a raving liberal, but cut me open and I bleed red, white and blue.

Despite what the wingnuts would believe, I love our soldiers, in every war from the Revolution to Enduring Freedom (or whatever this week's bullshit euphemism is), and that includes Viet Nam. Why? Because they wear our uniforms and fight for our side, whether or not the people who sent them there knew what they were doing. Although I'm a pacifist, I greatly admire anyone who takes up arms to defend this country. And that's kind of the key concept -- takes up arms to defend this country. Not to defend the wealth of a few rich bastards, or turns into cannon fodder to defend the misguided principals of a few greedy morons; the joke on the morons in power being this: the very brave men and women fighting your battles overseas aren't there for you. They're there for us. I'm sure that there were tons of Clinton haters in Bosnia -- but not a one of them that would have set down their gun and said "fuck it" because Clinton was the president. Likewise, I'm sure there are plenty of Bush haters in Iraq who are staying the course because they believe they're fighting for us. Us being -- not you rich assholes in D.C., but Us being... well, does anyone in Washington remember the phrase "We, the people?"

Our soldiers do. Our soldiers always do. And, memo to all soldiers -- I was far too young to hate you for Viet Nam. Blame the greedy Baby Boomers for that crap. And remember that, for the most part, it's Baby Boomers who never served in the military who have stuck your asses in Iraq right now. I believe the term is "Chickenhawks." But, like many people of my generation, we've learned the meaning of the phrase, "Hate the war, but love the warrior."

Again, this reminder -- Love of Country is the true determinant here. And, whether you Love your Country by thinking that government shouldn't be too big, and shouldn't be nosing into your life (a Conservative ideal until it comes to the bedroom), or by thinking that government should serve its people by helping them, without dictating their behavior (the Liberal version of the same), it still comes down to the same thing...

The government is not made up of the people in office. The government is, first, last and always, the People. When the folk in the Executive, Legislative or Judicial branches have abrogated their responsibility to the Constitution, then it's the People's job to dump their asses.

To be a true Patriot is to remember that the folk in those branches work for us, not the other way around. And, to be true to the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, when they fail us, it is within our power, and no one elses', to fire their sorry asses.

"The Constitution is just a goddamn piece of paper..."

Them's fighting words. And anybody who truly loves America (and our freedoms) should want nothing more than to get rid of whoever said that -- Democrat, Republican or Independent.

I'll say it again -- the statement quoted above is as un-American as anything, anything -- anything -- Osama bin Laden could do.

That statement is treason and sedition.

Impeachment for a blow job? If you supported that, you're a hypocrite if you can't support it for a goddamn piece of paper.

After all, Clinton only stained a dress. W. has stained... well, he's stained all of American history back to July 4, 1776.

And I'd call that the highest of treason. If you can't -- then you're not an American, and you hate our freedom. Don't you?

I love my country. I love America. I still have some hope, thanks to the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, that we are the best country in the world. And I will kick the shit out of anyone who does not respect those two documents more than anything else.

I was lucky enough to be born here, but, by virtue of that fact, I consider this to be the oath I took when I popped out of my momma's womb on American soil:
"I do solemnly affirm that I will... to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
Just a piece of paper?

Anyone who thinks that can kiss my red, white and blue ass. And that includes you know who. 'Cause, every April 15th, I remember exactly who that asshole works for. And, were it up to me, I'd be telling him to his sorry, gin-blossomed face, "You're fired."

If you love this country, you'd say exactly the same.
