Obama says he doesn't favor impeachment of Bush, Cheney

WASHINGTON -- U.S. Sen. Barack Obama says he doesn't favor impeachment proceedings for President George W. Bush and Vice President Cheney.

Obama made that comment Thursday in response to a question asked at a meeting in Washington with his Illinois constituents.

The Illinois Democrat said he's distressed by the Bush administration's ethical standards and secrecy. But the presidential hopeful says impeachment should be reserved for "grave" breaches of the president's authority.

Both Obama and Sen. Dick Durbin said having to deal with month after month of impeachment hearings wouldn't be in the best interest of America.

Obama said there's a better way for unhappy Americans to deal with elected officials. He said they can "vote the bums out."

I wonder how long it’s been since Obama stopped beating his wife?

Is this supposed to make him seem reasonable? Does he also reject the idea that the moon is inhabited by Amazon women?

Of course not, it would take the attention off of him. Spotlight, microphone, action for the ‘new’ Bobby Kennedy.

How brilliant of Obama—considering thath there’s nothing [that I know of] to impeach about.

I get so sick of people tossing the word “impeach” around. It’s a serious business, not to be taken lightly.

This clown knows that they don’t have the votes or the evidence for impeachment and it is time to call these clowns out.

No need to vote President Bush out of office. When his term is up he will be gone anyway.

I bet Obama and the left don't realize that. hehehe!

I thought Obamalama weighed in on the side of impeachment not too long ago. Must have misread the article.

You can also deal with folks who are incompetent by not electing them in the first place, Osama.

They are beating a dead horse anyway.

It must be really difficult to be a Dem candidate.

You know that you need the support of the moonbat community, but you also need to show some evidence of having a brain.

Show too much sense...loose the moonbats. Pander to the moonbats...make promises you couldn’t possibly keep.

So you have to go out to the public and lie. Or obfuscate. Or otherwise walk on eggshells.

At the end of the day, they must feel...so dirty.
Either that or they like it.

That’s soooo nice. Nor is in favor of putting us in labor “reeducation” camps, I presume.

I am in favor of hitting most (99%) of the people in office, or running for office, in the heads with bricks.

Amazing to me that 2 or 3 years ago this guy was a nothing State Senator and now the fawning media runs every scenario in the world passed him as if he has a bloody clue!

He doesn’t.

All because he’s a minority, is “clean”, has nice teeth and has a name like B. Hussein Obama.

What kind of prize does a reporter get for asking such an inane question in the first place?

Great thread..and the graphic did me in :-)

Well, I know he recently came out whining about the race SCOTUS cases and the 2 Bush judges.

Perhaps Robert Byrd threatened to lynch him on the Senate floor if he didn’t make these comments.
