The Republican Party does not know how to choose a good candidate for President, or how to get rid of a very bad President. Why didn't Republicans take the initiative to bounce Bush from the Whitehouse on September 12, 2001 instead of backing him for two terms?

There could be Political Science courses on the US President from 2001-2008’s public speaking record.

The office was definitely not a position to be turned into an object of world ridicule. The Republicans have been leading the charge to find Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for his refusal to turn over all requested documents for operation Fast and Furious and Republicans are stonewalling, or opposing every critical piece of legislation proposed by the Democrats.

Leading Republicans in Congress have prioritized allegiance to a Republican president (past and future) above all other governmental and constitutional concerns. But there was a time when U.S. lawmakers, regardless of party affiliation, actually voted the way of their conscience. There was a time when a president could not break the law or ignore a summons from Congress with impunity. Indeed, by the height of Richard Nixon’s Watergate scandal, a number of congressmen — including Republicans staunchly loyal to their party — acted to uphold the law and make Nixon accountable.

In 2007, the main concern of lawmakers seems to be the preservation of power and the entitlements that come with it. Republican allies of the White House have blocked congressional investigations into the Bush administration’s alleged misdeeds, including illegal spying on Americans’ phone calls. In 2006, the Senate Intelligence Committee, led by Pat Roberts, R-Kan., thwarted an investigation into warrantless eavesdropping by the National Security Agency. While serving as chairman of the Judiciary Committee prior to the Democratic takeover of Congress in 2006, Arlen Specter, R-Pa., though a vocal critic of the spying, failed to initiate any investigations into Bush’s wiretapping program, despite ample evidence that it violated the existing FISA laws. Meanwhile, top Democrats, including Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia and Dianne Feinstein of California, have shown a willingness to cave into Bush’s demands, including retroactive immunity for American telecom companies that assisted the government’s spying. The Bush era has drawn various comparisons with the Nixon era, but what seems forgotten from that time is the courage exhibited by a handful of lawmakers, once fiercely loyal to the president, who ultimately decided to impeach him. In recent interviews with Salon, some of those former congressmen spoke about their reasons for risking their political career and taking a principled stand, the kind that seems so unlikely on Capitol Hill today.

Where were the checks and balances when GW Bush was President? Can our government be manipulated by hypnotic suggestion, mind control over key members in the House, Senate and SCOTUS?

Once it’s started how is it stopped?
