Pelosi says House Judiciary may hold hearings on Kucinich impeachment resolution

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said this morning that the House Judiciary Committee may hold hearings on an impeachment resolution offered by Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio).

Kucinich is expected to offer a "privileged resolution" this afternoon calling on the House to look at whether President Bush should be removed from office for lying to Congress and the American public when he sought congressional approval back in 2002 for taking military action to invade Iraq and overthrow Saddam Hussein.

Politics as usual. Congress, a Dem Congress, does not want to work ‘for the people’ when they can advance partisan ideology and vindictive against a hated foe!

Do we really have to keep paying these people? For Gawds sake, Bush is almost done with his last term.

Congress is as bad as Hillary. They just can't get or do anything right.

What a bunch of losers.

Worst, they are running my country and we may all be losers.

Go ahead, make my day. Let’s have this impeachment nonsense be part of the presidential campaign discussion.

Do they really think this is a smart political move? Face it, politics are a big part of any impeachment effort. I thought in the past that Nancy had silenced talk about impeachment among her fellow Dems. Maybe she had some political smarts, and knew what a huge distraction a serious impeachment effort would be, with little to gain politically.

As a practical matter, it’s absurd since Bush leaves office in six months anyway.

...surprisingly,Congress and the MSM wonder why the rating so low. Pelosi bottoms the list, I give her a 1% and that’s only because there could be someone worse.

Just like the left wing wacko protesters at the RNC convention, the GOP should do everything to support this effort to show America on live TV what the left is all about.

You'd think she would want to do something to improve that rating.

We are paying these pretenders huge sums of money each month to waste our time doing dirty politics instead of taking care of the business of the nation?

For each one who takes part in this face - let’s keep a list so we know for future who is more interested in vendetta than smooth government.

Pelosi and her Henchman/Troll should be removed from office
themselves.

Less than six months before the next Presidential election...and about eight months before the next inauguration, and they want to entertain impeaching the President? Surely, if there were even a remote shred of evidence they could use to bring charges against President Bush, they would’ve already done so. Congress is also on summer recess, which gives them what—about two months of being “in session” before the end of the year? What could they possibly accomplish? It would be a “Kangaroo Court” in its highest form.

Of course they’ll have hearings, right before the elections, and the MSM will cover them gavel to gavel, repeating every partisan smear as if it were fact. Can’t miss this opportunity to help Obama.

It was, after all, California’s Nancy Pelosi who had warned the nation on December 16, 1998, during Operation Desert Fox, that Saddam’s “development of WMD technology . . . is a threat to countries in the region.” During the House debate in October 2002, Pelosi sounded the same urgent theme, summing up a threat whose imminence the Democrats had been insisting upon for years. “Yes,” reiterated the tireless Pelosi, “[Saddam] has chemical weapons. He has biological weapons. He is trying to get nuclear weapons.”

These idiots must have their own hidden Life Boats. Their hate and power mongering overwhelms their own “survival instinct” and realization that we are all in the same boat and when it sinks, they will go down, too. And with their last breath they will be pointing the finger at someone else. May they go to hell.

Pelosi and Kucinich aren't the problem. The problem is the lefties who vote them into office and the righties who provide lefties with social and familial support.

"Pelosi says House Judiciary may hold hearings on Kucinich impeachment resolution... calling on the House to look at whether President Bush should be removed from office for lying to Congress and the American public when he sought congressional approval back in 2002 for taking military action to invade Iraq and overthrow Saddam Hussein..."


"As a member of the House Intelligence Committee, I am 
keenly aware that the proliferation of chemical and 
biological weapons is an issue of grave importance to all 
nations.  Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development
of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat 
to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the 
weapons inspection process."

I think it’s time someone asked her if she was aware of how low Congress’ approval rating is and inform her there is a reason for it. Of course as arrogant as she is I’m sure she wouldn’t care.

Less than six months before the next Presidential election...and about eight months before the next inauguration

How many months per year are in your calendar, Lou?

It's July 10th today, so let's count together: August, September, October, November. How many months is that? I count four. A few days less than four more months until Election Day, November 4, 2008.

Then, to Inauguration Day, we continue counting: December, January. How many months is that? Seems like it's two more months, for a total of a little more than six months until Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009.

CLINTON: "Good evening.

Earlier today, I ordered America's armed forces to strike 
military and security targets in Iraq. They are joined by 
British forces. Their mission is to attack Iraq's nuclear, 
chemical and biological weapons programs and its military 
capacity to threaten its neighbors. 

The hard fact is that so long as Saddam remains in power, 
he threatens the well-being of his people, the peace of his 
region, the security of the world.

The best way to end that threat once and for all is with a 
new Iraqi government -- a government ready to live in peace 
with its neighbors, a government that respects the rights of
its people."
