Romanians Vote on Popular President's Impeachment

We should learn from the Romanian example on impeaching their president. And I don't think that their chief executive is anywhere near as guilty as Mr.Bush:
Romanians were voting Saturday on whether to impeach President Traian Basescu who has been accused of violating the constitution but remains popular among the public.

Polls have suggested Basescu, 55, will win the vote, reinforcing his legitimacy as president and head of a centre-right coalition.

Impeachment only concerns itself wrongdoing and not competence. We need to change the constitution so that we can recall a failed president. And no president has ever been as inept as George Bush. It would be a much more effective means of holding politicians accountable. It was done in California where it is generally believed to have been a success:
Voters are being asked to reply "yes" or "no" to the question "Do you agree with Traian Basescu being dismissed?"

If he has to go, new presidential elections will be organised within three months.
