The book is written as separate essays by various authors on different subjects that could lead to the impeachment of the President. Each of the articles, alone, would stand nicely and be a valuable piece in a magazine. When grouped together, however, there is a repetition of information that slows the book down and makes it tiring to read. Better editing could correct this problem.
A more serious flaw is the promotion of rather abstract theories to use in an impeachment procedure. Voter fraud in 2004, for one, probably happened, but it would be almost impossible to investigate thoroughly and incorporate as an impeachment article. And, while global warming is occurring, I don't think you can impeach a president for lack of action. That would be a policy decision, and if it were an impeachable offense, it will make every president a sitting duck for everyone that doesn't like their particular policies.
Finally, use of arguments such President Bush's campaign in Haiti are flawed. It will be difficult to get an impeachment with traditional charges, let alone on something that most Americans haven't heard about and probably don't care about either. Muddying the water with these items will make impeachment more difficult, and failing to get a conviction a near certainty. In addition, the writings are too "liberal" for most main stream Americans...the same ones who get their news from Fox and their ilk.
Having said all of that, I do think the book is an important work that should be read by every American. It highlights the numerous failures of this President and would make for excellent background material on a possible impeachment. And, finally, I think this book will be used as a textbook for years to come when the failings of Bush are studied.
The chapters are about 20 pages each and the sequencing of topics is also noteworthy. One leads to the next with insightful explorations of the topics and the consciousness or lack of by the current administration.
I have already begun to mail copies to people who can carry this important issue forward. The book is a motivator to get involved. There is too much at stake and the time is too short to wait for someone else to carry the ball.
My congressman & both senators are getting a photocopy of the list with a notice, "Things cannot get much worse anyway. If you do not follow this guide, do not expect my vote again. I can go green or libertarian if you cannot uphold The Constitution of the United States of America by removing these criminals."
So who are these authors?
According to their own BIO Info, Loo & Philips are both Sociology/History Professors at colleges in California.
Yet, other than these titles, NEITHER author lists ANY credentials in either Investigative Journalism, nor the topic most relevant to the title of the book-Law!
And both these authors somehow failed to notice the well-documented fact that the pre-war Intel regarding Iraq did not originate from Bush or Cheney in the first place, but rather from then CIA Director, Democrat, and Clinton Appointee, George Tenet.
So how did they miss this??? Well, there is another explanation:
These two are nothing but a couple of whiny, angry, biased, paranoid, Liberals, Who Have Absolutely NO Idea WTF They Are Talking About!
