Shocking

House waves off impeachment measure against Bush
By LAURIE KELLMAN, Associated Press Writer

12:55 PM PDT, June 11, 2008
WASHINGTON -- The House has voted to send articles of impeachment against President Bush to a committee that is not likely to hold hearings before the end of his term.

By 251-166, House members dispatched the measure to a committee on Wednesday -- a procedure often used to kill legislation.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi long ago declared the prospects for impeachment proceedings "off the table."

Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, who ran for president earlier this year, insists that his resolution deserves more consideration. He spent more than four hours Monday night reading his 35 articles of impeachment into the record, including charges that Bush manufactured a false case for going to war against Iraq.

On the top of my mind, bush and cheney should be impeached for falsely linking al qaeda to iraq and saddam to 9/11 in the run up and during the iraq war despite zero intelligence reports have been provided to the white house that would prove the links exist.

The people voted. Twice.

This is an empty gesture meant to rile up his fringe left wing constituency.

And again, you don't even read what you posted

First damn line of the article.

Not to mention anyone that voted for the invasion would also be open for impeachment.

i wish you two would come up with evidence of your conspiracy theories that it's all policital posturing. it doesnt make sense to me since that dennis kuchinich is not a running presidental candidate or at least not anymore. so what exactly would his motives be for introducing the articles to harry reid and nancy pelosi who have failed to follow through?

i see that mccarthyism still exists today. it used to be communists now it has multiplied into terrorists/leftist pigs/liberals/whatever. how short sighted.

I didn't postulate a "conspiracy theory", I simply offered hyperbolic and rather sarcastic speculation about his motives. A conspiracy theory would be to insist that he is involved in some elaborate deception to fool the American people.

Are you really so dense that you can't tell the difference?

And that he has partners.

Also, he is a politician. He is constantly running for office. Like I said, this move riles up the fringe left in his district that keep him in office.

Creating a Sisyphus-like image helps him keep his job.

And how exactly do you equate this McCarthyism? You've used more of Tail Gunner Joe's tactics than anyone here.

you are absolutely correct sir. i don't feel like arguing over a trivial matter whether he is being sincere or playing politics. i am just wondering why the offers for impeachment have been dismissed when it is clearly evident that white house has been involved wrongdoings.

Because its too damn late. How can you impeach someone thats already out of office? Because these proceedings won't start before January.

And nailing down the specific impeachable offense is not that easy. The big thing about the Bush administration is their ability to blur the lines so you can't say for sure if they are crossing them.

Of course, if you are one of the people who are claiming false pretenses for the Iraq invasion, well then that puts all those Congressional Dems in the lurch too. Especially the House and Senate Intelligence committees since they saw all the same documentation Bush did and still voted for it. You're pretty much asking them to supply the rope to their own hanging.

Boo-yah. November just can't come soon enough in my book.
