Bernstein on Bush

From Vanity Fair, Carl Bernstein points out the obvious:
Senate Hearings on Bush, Now
...the vehemence of anti-Bush sentiment in the country, expressed especially in the increasing number of Americans—nearing fifty percent in some polls—who say they would favor impeachment if the president were proved to have deliberately lied to justify going to war in Iraq.

How much evidence is there to justify such action?

Certainly enough to form a consensus around a national imperative: to learn what this president and his vice president knew and when they knew it; to determine what the Bush administration has done under the guise of national security; and to find out who did what, whether legal or illegal, unconstitutional or merely under the wire, in ignorance or incompetence or with good reason, while the administration barricaded itself behind the most Draconian secrecy and disingenuous information policies of the modern presidential era.
It one thing to be ignorance or incompetence or to operate with the most Draconian secrecy. But taken together, now thats trouble and needs to be looked into.

More from the article:
The calculations of politicians about their electoral futures should pale in comparison to the urgency of examining perhaps the most disastrous five years of decision-making of any modern American presidency.
Come on, let's be honest and leave off the "modern", we're for the record! Worst President Ever!!
