President Bush repeatedly authorized NSA spying

AP via Yahoo:

President Bush has personally authorized a secretive eavesdropping program in the United States more than three dozen times since October 2001, a senior intelligence official said Friday night.

The disclosure follows angry demands by lawmakers earlier in the day for congressional inquiries into whether the monitoring by the highly secretive National Security Agency violated civil liberties.

The problem is, if we impeach Bush we get Cheney, who is worse.
