Rep. Dennis Kucinich, a former Democratic presidential candidate from Ohio, introduced a resolution to impeach President Bush into the House of Representatives on Tuesday.Yes, the Iraq war, APPROVED by the senate was illegal. Sorry, if they weren't smart enough to do their due diligence and verify Bush's claims on the case for removing Sadam, then that doesn't make it illegal. And frankly, international law is irrelevant.
Kucinich announced his intention to seek Bush's impeachment Monday night, when he read the lengthy document into the record.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has repeatedly said she would not support a resolution calling for Bush's impeachment, saying such a move was unlikely to succeed and would be divisive.
Most of the congressman's resolution deals with the Iraq war, contending that the president manufactured a false case for the war, violated U.S. and international law to invade Iraq, failed to provide troops with proper equipment and falsified casualty reports for political purposes.
Pelosi is correct of the divisiveness of such a resolution. It was proven with force during the Clinton impeachment and that had more grounds in fact even if the reasoning wasn't very good. No doubt we'll be hearing cheers from the left wing losers on this one. No doubt this will churn up lots of Republican support in time for the elections should they decide to actually move ahead. Good plan Dennis Dipshit.
Kucinich also charges that Bush has illegally detained without charge both U.S. citizens and "foreign captives" and violated numerous U.S. laws through the use of "signing statements" declaring his intention to do so.That list really should make you wonder. What didn't the president cause to go wrong? As for the signing statements, I don't like that they are used, but he isn't the first to use them and the legality of them is not in question. They just aren't the most honest method of dealing with legislation that doesn't pass the sniff test.
Other articles address global warming, voting rights, Medicare, the response to Hurricane Katrina and failure to comply with congressional subpoenas.
I hope Ohio is happy with this jackass. No doubt he's a star from their state.
