Kucinich calls for Bush impeachment
Updated: Jan 23, 2008 03:52 PM CST
NATIONAL (NBC) - Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich may get excluded from Democratic presidential debates, but he's voicing his opinion on the House floor.
On Wednesday, Kucinich announced he'll be filing articles of impeachment against President Bush on Monday.
That's the same day of the president's State of the Union address.
The announcement comes as Kucinich railed the President and Vice President for how they have handled the war in Iraq.
In his lengthy statement, the Ohio congressman said, "The President and Vice President lied and 4,000 of our soldiers died. The President and Vice President lied and a million innocent Iraqis died in a war that'll cost us $2 trillion while people here in the states are losing their jobs, their health care, their homes, their dignity. Lies are weapons of mass destruction. Lies are also an impeachable offense. Monday, January 28th is the State of the Union. We already know the State of the Union, it's a lie."
After minor commotion on the floor and opposition by Republicans, the ostracized presidential candidate moved to have his words taken off the record.
Kucinich said, "I ask unanimous consent to withdraw the offending words, to the end that they be stricken from the record and that I be permitted to revise and extend my remarks for the record."
Last April and November, Kucinich almost had the House debating the impeachment of Vice President Cheney.
House Democratic leaders blocked the debate by referring the impeachment effort back to the judiciary committee.

Just another bumper-sticker campaign speech?
They all know there will be no impeachment so it’s all talk to rile the base.
grandstanding by a midget?
The little twerp is just wanting attention. He’s not good enough to mention Pres. Bush’s name.
When will charges of treason be leveled against him and other traitors?
He’s been saying the exact same thing for the last couple of years — not sure why its news now. He’s a twerp.
Kucinich said, “I ask unanimous consent to withdraw the offending words, to the end that they be stricken from the record and that I be permitted to revise and extend my remarks for the record.”
LOL... I hope they refused. Stick it to that twerp.
They should schedule the Impeachment hearing for 19 Jan 2008.
He’s just trolling to be Ron Paul’s veep.
The name doesn't ring a bell.
Dennis will be the darling of the left and our nation’s media until Monday about midnight.
Dennis ought to stick to stuff he knows - antigravity drives and Nazi moon bases.
Kucinich left his mind in the shower again this morning......
I missed the live event. Was Kookcinich wearing his tinfoil hat? Did he arrive via the yellow brick road with the rest of the munchkins?
This guy is a loon. A genuine, certifiable, howling-at-the-moon lunatic. But, we can’t seem to get him out of Ohio. He represents a district in Cleveland, so that might explain some of the issue...folks drinking too much lake water, up there.
Hope he takes a long ride on a UFO.
I wish those damned Alpha-Centaurians would come back and pick-up their lost comrade. We’re getting tired of him.
I wonder how many gift cards Kucinichnut got for saying that on the House Floor by his stupid following.
