Update:Nov 7th Kucinich's Broadside At Cheney Is Foiled
Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) Announced today that he will introduce a privileged resolution in the House of Representatives to Impeach Vice President Richard Cheney. (Kucinich Will Introduce Privileged Resolution To Force Up Or Down Vote On Cheney Impeachment)
“The momentum is building for impeachment,” Kucinich said. “Millions of citizens across the nation are demanding Congress rein in the Vice President’s abuse of power."Mr. Kucinich apparently seeks help with his Presidential Bid by appealing to the Radical Left. This is an irresponsible political act during a time of war. A better choice would be a Recall Petition by the Voters in Ohio.
“Congress must hold the Vice President accountable. The American people need to let Members of Congress know how they feel about this. The Vice President continues to use his office to advocate for a continued occupation of Iraq and prod our nation into a belligerent stance against Iran. If the Vice President is successful, his actions will ensure decades of disastrous consequences.”Since the Senate voted to authorize the use of Military force in Iraq, US Military presence in Iraq is necessary to the conduct of the actions authorized by a Majority of Senators. If this is occupation, then what do we call the presence of US Military in Germany, South Korea and many other places in this world? Why is Iraq different?
If Mr. Kucinich does not believe Iran deserves a belligerent stance, he should read and/or review Iran's stated position on Israel and freedoms in general.
Take a look at the co-sponsors.
H. Res. 333, Articles of Impeachment against the Vice President, has 21 cosponsors. They are: Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Robert Brady (D-PA), Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-MO), Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN), Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), Rep. Sam Farr (D-CA), Rep. Bob Filner (D-CA), Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX), Rep. Henry Johnson (D-GA), Rep. Carolyn Kilpatrick (D-MI), Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA), Rep. James Moran (D-VA), Rep. Donald Payne (D-NJ), Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), Rep. Edolphus Towns (D-NY), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), Rep. Diane Watson (D-CA), Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA) and Rep. Albert Wynn (D-MD).Shouldn't we insist that our Congressman actually do something which will benefit the country? Our economy is good, Unemployment is low, there have been no significant Terror Attacks since 9-11 as a result of Bush/Cheney, Not Congress. No wonder the approval rating of Congress is at an all time low!
