Skip to comments.Kucinich: Obama Should Be Impeached
Posted on 03/20/2011 10:56:25 AM PDT by therightliveswithus
You may have varying opinions on Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), but one thing is always certain: he speaks his mind. For example, in a 2007 Presidential debate, Kucinich stated that he saw a UFO and that it "moved him." Now he is saying something new: President Obama must be impeached.
During the Presidency of George W. Bush, Kucinich called multiple times for his impeachment. Certainly being consistent, Kucinich wondered aloud about the impeachment of President Barack Obama on the grounds that the President's campaign against Libya is illegal.
The Congressman "strongly raised objections to the constitutionality of the presidents actions according to two lawmakers during a Democratic caucus on Saturday. He further openly questioned Democrats and their morals, asking why few of them raised any concern over the President's plan.
Amongst other Democrats that doubted the President's decision on Libya yesterday were Representatives Jerrold Nadler of New York, Mike Capuano of Massachusetts, Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, Maxine Waters of California, Rob Andrews of New Jersey, Barbara Lee of California, Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton of Washington D.C., and Donna Edwards of Maryland.

Are the liberals going to eat their own here? I guess we’ll see....................
They do need congressional approval for this. Like it or hate it, they SHOULD HAVE GOT congressional approval.
To not do so is extremely provocative.
...and they begin the process of eating their own. :)
Well then, why in the hell don’t you start it already? Tell your friends. DO IT!
Then talk about it.
Even a liberal loon can be right once in awhile.
Kucinich is worried about losing his seat in Congress, as Ohio is losing two seats due to the reapportionment, and his district may no longer be there for him to run in. He may yet run in primaries against Obama, and give up on staying in Congress.
This could be part of a setting up a primary presidential run for Kucinich. Stay tuned.
Actually, HE NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN “ELECTED”! But you morons on the left needed the race card available to you in order to pass communist healthcare so you installed the moron without any consideration as to how incompetent he was.
I think the administration position is that since the UN approved this action, it’s all good as far as approvals and legalities are concerned.
Congressional approval is for declaration of war. War is not going to be declared. War was never declared for iraq, aghanistan, vietnem, or korea, or any of the other little skirmishes in the last 50 years.
We may have to wait until Sen Graham is up for re-election:
Sen. Graham: Obama Did Not Need To Seek Congressional Approval
File the papers on Monday, Dennis. File the papers on Monday. Let’s get it done.
DNC Cheer [to be delivered out of the US while putting it down]:
"I can bomb if I want to.
I can leave Congress and Allies behind
'Cause to radical Islam they do not bow
and if they don't bow.
Well, they're no friends of mine ..."
[apology to 'Men Without Hats']
So yeah, he'll bang his pots and pans for impeachment for a little while, then move on to something else.
Kucinich more than most. He was right about the Balkans and Kosovo and he's right on money/banking issues, and he's right on this.
Go Dennis Go~!!!
And make sure to parade that tall redhead wife of yours around too~!!!
But America is not a wholly owned subsidiary of the UN.
Unfortunately, “should” does not mean “will”. There are millions of disgusting worthless spoiled bRats living in this country who are perfectly happy with the destruction of their own home. They are too spoiled and too stupid to realize how their blind and unlimited hatred for the west will bring themselves just as much misery as they brought others. They are so totally consumed by their own selfishness, dissatisfaction, and hatred that they can’t even imagine the repercussions of socialism. All they know is they hate the rich, they want their money, and they hate anything and everyone else who makes their useless lives even the slightest bit uncomfortable.
They will not consent to Obama’s impeachment because he is doing most of what they wanted him to do: use dictatorial power to punish the successful members of the working class and give money to entitled leftist rats (i.e. their wonderful selves). They aren’t happy that he didn’t totally eliminate America’s ability to fight evil on a global scale but that’s pretty much it. He is still hurting most of the people these “tolerant” leftists hate: every non-leftist man, woman, and child.
And on the 17th California Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA-46) rushed down to the floor of the House to vote "yes" on Representative Dennis Kucinich's (D-OH-10) bill calling for the administration to move troops out of Afghanistan by the end of the year.
Kucinich's political hero is said to be straight shootin' Harry Truman.
They might be angry with some of the seemingly pro-America and pro-human decisions his administration made recently but they will not turn on Obama.
All Obama has to do is keep giving monetary handouts and offices of power to leftists and they will continue to support his party. That’s it. That’s all it will take to get reelected assuming that the Democrats don’t find another “messiah” to present to the idiot masses. These worthless animals are not capable of caring about ANYTHING or ANYONE other than their own physical pleasure and comfort. Nothing.
“He further openly questioned Democrats and their morals”
Heck, that’s all we do around here. Come join the land of the FRee, Denny!
“Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, Maxine Waters of California”
Welcome to Crazytown, Mr. Putative President!
As frequent visitors, we hope you enjoy your stay.
Try the veal—it’s the best in the city.
So much for U.S. sovereignty.
The media would be going nuts if the right base ever called for Bush’s impeachment. But this will be brushed off as fringe news.
He needs the attention and the money and his position to keep his tall red haired wife from leaving him.
Most liberals are too scared to criticize Obama since they believe that makes you a racist.
“strongly raised objections to the constitutionality of the presidents actions
WELCOME TO THE PARTY, PAL!!!
Actually, Harry Truman set the example when he went into Korea and said it wasn’t a war, it was a “police action.” And he got UN approval because the USSR made the foolish mistake of boycotting the UN just at that moment, so they couldn’t veto the Security Council resolution.
I don’t have a problem with congressional approval so much as with the complete lack of discussion of any kind. Basically, Barry said to himself, “Well, I don’t want to give up my trip to Rio and spend endless hours discussing this, so I guess I’d better just do it, and get the press off my back. OK, guys, go ahead and shoot ‘em up! So long, I’m off to Rio! Too bad I missed the carnival!”
I can believe this, I think most of the RAT senators know how inept Zero is, none want to say it, but once one speaks out, the rest may follow! WE can ONLY HOPE!
Also, how can ZERO let Brazil drill in the gulf & WE cannot?? If Bush did any one of the things Zero has done, he’d have been impeached the first year in office.
You are a Ron Paul fan aren’t you?
The only thing that makes the No Fly Zone sorta’-legal is that it was initiated by the UN. Since the UN already controls many aspects of our Country, our joining in with the NFZ is just one more step down the proverbial Primrose Path to surrendering our sovereignty. Boy, do we EVER need Sarah Palin at the helm!
Ok, so where’s the supreme court case for libya then?
Good point, I never supported the action in Libya.
It’s not a no fly zone.
The War Powers Resolution of 1973 (50 U.S.C. 15411548) was a United States Congress joint resolution providing that the President can send U.S. armed forces into action abroad only by authorization of Congress or if the United States is already under attack or serious threat. The War Powers Resolution requires the president to notify Congress within 48 hours of committing armed forces to military action and forbids armed forces from remaining for more than 60 days, with a further 30 day withdrawal period, without an authorization of the use of military force or a declaration of war.
Congress needs to be notified. So when did hostilities start and how many hours are left from the 48 and will congress authorize this little adventure?
He’s an annoying little twerp, but at least he’s a consistently annoying little twerp. How’s that thang with Miss Vicky working out?
Something we agree on ... different reasons same result
At this point, I’m neither in support of nor against it. A couple of clown acts like obama and the UN couldn’t possibly help the situation though.
LIBYA, OBAMA’S BABY
Tune: “Lydia, the Tattooed Lady”
Libya, oh, Libya
I don’t mean Namibia
Libya, Obama’s baby
He’s a Bush, with thorns and thistles
When he sends in long-range missles
Libya, oh, Libya
Barack’s just like Dubya
Dubya, the bane of DU!
We thought we’d have peace with Obama the Great
But he’s a repeat of the bomber we hate
Is Cheney in charge at Defense or at State?
Déjà vu anew with Libya!
Last night I shot a Khadaffi in my pajamas...
I don’t think you read your own post very well. As long as he’s out in 90 days he doesn’t need congress for anything.
So both Clinton and Obama like tossing around missiles. Must be a dem thing.
“I dont think you read your own post very well. As long as hes out in 90 days he doesnt need congress for anything.”
The War Powers Resolution requires the president to notify Congress within 48 hours of committing armed forces to military action...
Nope, he has to notify Congress.
So get busy on it, Alfred E. Newman.
The funny thing about all this is that Dennis the twerp might actually succeed if he did it.
Now wouldnt that be a hoot? A socialist leading the impeachment process that impeaches his own.
