And the big secret about Fifi LeDeaux, who in Petite St Pierre, France, signed a secret pact with Elvis Presley to abduct dairy cows and transmorgify them into eels!

Is Mr. Bush setting a good example to the people by this? Is any American above the law or a law unto themselves?

Is refusing to honor a congressional subpoena an impeachable offense?

The documents will be surrendered to Congress or they will be taken legally, by force if necessary.

Attacking people for asking a question, and then calling them names based on something you pulled out of your desert fried brain is about as ignorant as anyone can be.

You don't know me, my political leanings or beliefs. Go sit on a barrel cactus. Maybe that will give you some enlightenment.

There is nothing impeachable per se about the President refusing to honor a subpoena by invoking Executive Privilege. There is nothing incorrect about the Congress exercising its right to oversee the Executive, either.

When the kids (Executive v Legislative) get to fighting like that, the arbiter is the Courts.

That being said, Executive Privilege has been invoked by three Administrations in my lifetime to cover up criminal conduct. The folks in and around the Bush White House have considerable ties to two out of the three, and by far the most egregious of them in fact.
