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....
