Standing Up to the Schoolyard Bully

U.S. Congressman John Olver (D-MA) said recently that he

"is deeply concerned whether we will actually have an election in Nov. '08, as he believes this administration will likely strike Iran from the air, declare a national emergency, and cancel the '08 elections".

As Ralph Nader describes it, Olver and the rest of Congress are afraid that -- if Bush or Cheney are impeached -- they might declare martial law and suspend the 2008 elections:

How is Congress failing to remove Bush and Cheney from office based upon such fears any different from Neville Chamberlain trying to appease Hitler so Hitler would not attack?

Appeasing bullies only encourages them to become more aggressive. Appeasing criminals only guarantees that they will strike again and commit bigger crimes.

Don't Americans remember that the only thing that works is standing up to the schoolyard bully?


I've suspected there was some threats made or implied to stop impeachment.
b., Cheney, Mueller and Santorum all talked of terrorist nuking an American city.

I understood that as a threat.

I'm sure domestic spying beginning pre-9/11 has turned up some sleeze on all our beloved lawmakers
and is also keeping them in their place.
