    Kucinich presents Bush impeachment articles

    An Ohio Democratic lawmaker and former presidential candidate has presented articles of impeachment against President George W. Bush to Congress.

    Thirty-five articles were presented by Rep. Dennis Kucinich to the House of Representatives late Monday evening, airing live on CSPAN.

    "The House is not in order," said Kucinich to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) before he began to read the articles, upon which Pelosi pounded her gavel.

    "Resolved," he then began, "that President George W. Bush be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and that the following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate. ...

    "In his conduct while President of the United States, George W. Bush, in violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of president of the United States, and to the best of his ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has committed the following abuses of power..."

    The first article Kucinich presented regarded the war in Iraq. "Article 1: Creating a secret propaganda campaign to manufacture a false case for war against Iraq."

    Kucinich, a 2004 and 2008 Democratic candidate for the White House, abandoned a prior attempt to begin impeachment proceedings against Bush in January of this year.

    In April of 2007, Kucinich presented impeachment articles against Vice President Dick Cheney, but the effort went nowhere. Kucinich exclaimed that "impeachment may well be the only remedy which remains to stop a war of aggression against Iran."

    Before leaving office in January 2007, Rep. Cynthia McKinney--currently a Green Party presidential candidate--introduced articles of impeachment against President Bush as her last act in Congress, but that effort also was fruitless.

    They are wetting their collective panties over there. Organizing a blitz of the MSM to insist they cover Kucinich's article of impeachment.

    Lucy? Where's your football?

    Why are they so politically naive?

    I suspect his fellow Democratic colleagues think he's a a joke.

    I guess they have forgotten the Cheney impeachment form mad-man Dennis. The Republicans wanted to take it to debate, Pelosi freaked out.

    Once more DU engages in another mental circule jerk.

    Once Bush is out of office, these assholes are going to turn on the American people like monkeys on meth and they'll try to make many people as they can as misable as they make themselves.

    I hope they talk about this for months, that way they become suicidal once it doesn't pan out. What "gate" are they calling this one, anyone know?
