35 Articles of Impeachment introduced against Bush

Post by BlueCrab » Tue Jun 10, 2008 9:07 pm

Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich defied his party leadership on Monday by calling for the impeachment of U.S. President George W. Bush for launching the Iraq war -- but his move was not expected to go anywhere.

The Ohio representative outlined his intention to propose more than two dozen charges against Bush on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Kucinich, a former presidential candidate, accused Bush executing a "calculated and wide-ranging strategy" to deceive citizens and Congress into believing that Iraq posed an imminent threat to the United States.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has repeatedly said she opposes trying to remove the Republican president who leaves office next January because such an attempt would be divisive and most likely unsuccessful.

Kucinich, an outspoken Iraq war critic who has consistently voted against funding the war and led anti-war efforts in Congress, offered a resolution to impeach Vice president Dick Cheney in April 2007. That also failed to move forward.

Many Democrats and civil liberties groups have accused the Bush administration of providing misleading information before the 2003 Iraq invasion as well as violating the rights of U.S. citizens with its warrantless surveillance program. The White House denies the charges.

At least it's on the record.

Is there actually a point in trying to remove a lame duck president? Does he not realize that he would be getting Cheney as president if he was successful?

How about sending a message to politicians that their actions have consequences?

this serves no point but to get his overinflated ego and name out in the papers. pres. bush has 7 months left, these people take years to do anything, much less a impeachment.

how long was it before clinton got impeached ?

And I suppose you'd also say that Bush doesn't deserve to be impeached for what he has done, where Clinton did somehow?

Oh ok, I'll go unvote for bush when I'm done with class later.

come to think of it, why did we invade iraq? maybe we should've just unvoted for saddam.

Clinton did lie under oath, but for something that shouldn't have been the American public's concern.

if only there was a feasible way for the public to remove a President... but considering how fickle the public is, and the disastrous effects it would have on the stability of the nation, I suppose I'm glad there isn't. Though personally I've wishing for an impeachment for years now...
