Kucinich to Introduce Impeachment Articles


Read the story for the details. I am more interesting in discussing this.

"One, they misled the nation into war, an aggressive and illegal war that has obviously been catastrophic," Park said. "They are currently violating the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act" by ordering wiretap warrants without FISA court approval and they are committing torture in violation of the Geneva Conventions.
"Very few people will deny those charges whether they support impeachment or not," Park said.

I just can't believe the leftists are still beating these drums. As we know there is still zero evidence that "Bush lied, people died". There just isn't. Not a single shred of proof that Bush, or Cheney for that matter, knowingly misled the public in the run-up to the war.

The second bit about "an aggressive and illegal war that has obviously been catastrophic" is kind of funny. War by definition is aggressive, or at least it should be. This war isn't aggressive enough. Had it been from the beginning it may very well have been over by now. The illegal war treatise is just mind-boggling. Illegal to who? The legislature gave the President authorization to use force. Now if you want to bring the UN into this thing, lets just go ahead and send Bush and our fighting men to The Hague, so they can be prosecuted by the international kangaroo court of socialism. We should go ahead and surrender our sovereignty as well. I am sure the blue helmets will take care of us well.

Has the war been catastrophic? It has been ill-waged at times that is certain. It has been a boondoggle for the Bush administration as well. Our fighting men's lives and our treasure has been sacrificed for the war. I am not so sure that makes it a catastrophe though. The leftists will always call war a catastrophe. As we have discussed before, they try to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory.

If the wiretap issue is such a problem, write some legislation to end it. Then you can take it to SCOTUS and see who wins.

The torture allegation is where this circus dies. We are not torturing people. Again let's see some proof. Of course torture to these people seems to include a stern voice.

Overall this is the same rhetoric the left has been spouting for years. I guess Kucinich is just trying to get some more votes out of the moonbat constituency that will follow him.
