THE PENDULUM SWUNG

George W. Bush

The Pendulum has indeed swung.

A new poll shows record public support for the impeachment of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, and The New York Times has come out in favor of a US withdrawal from Iraq.

According to the American Research Group, forty-five percent of Americans would back impeachment proceedings against Bush, while fifty-four percent would back the same against Cheney.

A measure to impeach Cheney has attracted nine co-sponsors since Ohio Democratic Congressmember Dennis Kucinich introduced it earlier this year.

Also, The New York Times has come out in favor of a US withdrawal from Iraq. In an editorial published on Sunday, the editors wrote, "It is time for the United States to leave Iraq, without any more delay than the Pentagon needs to organize an orderly exit."

The New York Times was widely criticized in the lead-up to the Iraq war for its coverage mirroring the Bush administration's claims on Saddam Hussein's non-existent weapons of mass destruction.
