Do You Recognise This Man?

You should because he's your de facto president. His name is David Addington. That puts Bush at third in command, if not further down the totem pole
The office of Vice President Dick Cheney routinely reviews pieces of legislation before they reach the president's desk, searching for provisions that Cheney believes would infringe on presidential power, according to former White House and Justice Department officials.

The officials said Cheney's legal adviser and chief of staff, David Addington , is the Bush a dministration's leading architect of the ``signing statements" the president has appended to more than 750 laws. The statements assert the president's right to ignore the laws because they conflict with his interpretation of the Constitution.

To put it bluntly, impeaching Bush will effect no change in policy. Further, you have an unelected government official making decisions for you. Comforting?
