There is blood in the water at the Bush White House, and it's not just special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald who put it there, with his indictment of Dick Cheney's chief of staff, Scooter Libby.

Page one of USA Today reads like this:" A solid majority of Americans, 55 percent, now judge Bush's presidency to be a failure." Not a happy line for any president.

But deep critics of the Bush White House and the Iraq war say it's worse than that. Worse than perjury, worse than outing a CIA agent. They see a nation deliberately misled to war. And with indictments in the White House, this is their hour. For some, impeachment is their cry.

Hear Bush critics let it rip.
