Obama says despite shortcomings of Bush administration, impeachment is not acceptable

Published: June 28, 2007


WASHINGTON: Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama laid out list of political shortcomings he sees in the Bush administration but said he opposes impeachment for either President George W. Bush or Vice President Dick Cheney.

Obama said he would not back such a move, although he has been distressed by the "loose ethical standards, the secrecy and incompetence" of a "variety of characters" in the administration.

"There's a way to bring an end to those practices, you know: vote the bums out," the presidential candidate said, without naming Bush or Cheney. "That's how our system is designed."



Barack Obama is now the de facto leader of the Democratic party. I stand with him. I think its time to get with the program. The Republicans are our enemy. Not our Dem leaders in Congress. I think the sooner we begin to learn and deal with this fact the better off we will all be.

This may get interesting. They are furious at Pelosi now....

27. I think he's actually beginning to flake out.
Maybe he needs a vacation?

He's certainly not winning many converts on his own side of the aisle with this crap. He's starting to sound more like Pelosi every day.

3. Impeachment is "Unacceptable"?

f**k that

The Desm are going to sweep all Bushco's crime under that rug once again. Problem is, the crap under that rug has built up too high for people to walk by without noticing it.

5. If our Dem leaders in Congress are enabling our enemies,
then they are no better than our enemies.

Such unhappy little people...

The Republicans are our enemy.

This line is disturbing. Though I dont LIKE democrats, and they do not LIKE me. I do not consider them enemies.

I predict a large KABOOM from DU followed by a purge around convention time. There are some troubled, angry people there and if Obama keeps crushing their beliefs, welll it's going to get ugly. And entertaining for us. :D

Damn, you'd think with Congress having a 9% approval rating, they'd be all warm and fuzzy freaky now.

My sentiments exactly. I oppose many of Democrats' policies, but would never call them my enemies.

Impeachment should be off the table. The administration has less than 200 days in office.
Good Grief, this is not 2004 or 06 where something like this could even be examined.
Besides, there was no sex involved.:rolleyes:
