Congress Holds Kangaroo Court to Denounce Bush

W will be leaving office soon, but that's all the more reason for Congressional kooks like Dennis Kucinich to step up their campaign to have him impeached over the Iraq War that Congress itself authorized before time runs out:

WASHINGTON — Rep. Dennis Kucinich's quest to impeach President Bush got an unofficial airing in the House Judiciary Committee on Friday. […] Kucinich got a rock star welcome of whistles, hoots and clapping as he walked into the hearing room, holding hands with his wife, from hundreds of anti-war, anti-Bush people crammed into the room and lining the hallways outside. T-shirts reading "Arrest Bush" and "Veterans for Impeachment" illustrated the sentiments of many.
[…C]ommittee chairman Rep. John Conyers explained to the audience it was not, technically, an impeachment hearing "to the regret of many." He said the House would have to vote for an impeachment inquiry to begin, a test not met by the July 15 vote to send Kucinich's impeachment resolution to the Judiciary Committee.

As if Congress had no more serious matters to address, a long parade of moonbat witnesses where called forward to denounce the President. Vincent Bugliosi called him a murderer. Rep. Robert Wexler (D-FL) accused him of vague "serious abuses" and "high crimes"; his demand for impeachment "drew hoots of approval from some members of the audience." Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) called Bush "the worst president that our country has suffered," already having forgotten the disastrous Jimmy Carter. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) proclaimed that Iraq was invaded just to help sinister Big Oil, going so far as to screech:

That is why this administration let Usama bin Laden go because they wanted to justify attacking Iraq.

There were a few grownups on hand, but grownups are no longer running the show in Congress. Lamar Smith (R-TX) compared the farcical hearing to "an anger management class," and stated the obvious:

Nothing is going to come out of this hearing with regard to impeachment. … That's because there is no evidence to support impeachment.

Nonetheless, impeachment hearings can be expected to continue until the day Bush leaves office. Horrifyingly, that may be the day these ill-behaved children take over the White House.

In the real world, if you held a phony meeting to discuss a non-existent project, your boss would fire you in a heartbeat. In Congress, you get free press coverage and extra votes from your kook constituency.

Yeah, Nancy Pelosi manages to stall any legislation that would help energy independence and create American jobs... but it's full speed ahead on these ridiculous impeachment hearings.

Don’t kid yourselves, the DimmoCongress is playing to the extreme left to get the votes for the mid-term elections. This is just a ploy by them to say that they have listened to the extreme MoonBat left base, and did something about it. And they are laughing all the way to dinner afterwards as to how retarded the MoonBat base is and how easy it is to appease their little brains.

Right on VK. Pelosi and the Dems are playing a dangerous game. The wrath building in this country is (I hope) going to spill over.

The people of the U.S. have got to stand up and tell Nancy and crew that their smug "we're not going to let any vote happen" attitude is really pissing people off. The radical left loves them, but that's it.


Why doesn't Bush call a special session of Congress and get something on the record. MAKE those Dems vote "NO" to ending this crisis...BEFORE their coronation event in August.

Nancy 9% Pelosi - what an outstanding example of a liberal democrat and their abilities and accomplishements. Even holding a majority, the twit is a complete utter failure. Complete. Abso-freaking-lute COMPLETE failure.

Silly liberals are such blind losers. So pathetic.

Congressman #1:We need to raise our approval rating by showing the proles we're capable of doing something. What can we do that doesn't involve voting yes on drilling in the US and lowering taxes, voting no on pork bills, or even doing our jobs?
Congressman #2:Nobody likes Bush. Mabye we could get everyone to like us by having a real-but-fake war crimes trial for him. They'll love us!
Congressman #3:What about Dick Cheney?
Congressman #2:He'll get one as well.
Congressman #1:I'm sold! We start tomorrow!

In all seriousness, these kind of show trials are just the kind Stalin used to distract the Russian people from the dismal state Russia was in. One more step down the slow road to tyranny I fear.

Christian-hater shoots up church. If he had shot up a mosque or a Pride Parade, this would be considered a Hate Crime.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) called Bush "the worst president that our country has suffered," already having forgotten the disastrous Jimmy Carter.

So Bush is not the worst president because he isn't as bad as Jimmy Carter? That's a pretty weak defense.

But Carter is the only president since WWII that didn't fight a war. He had ample opportunity to pick a fight with the Iranians, but chose not to. He didn't wreck the economy. He didn't allow unregulated financial institutions to cause millions of Americans to lose their homes. He didn't squander America's good will and turn the world against us. He didn't trash the economy. His adminsitration didn't commit treason by outing a CIA operative for political purposes. And so on.

So any thinking person must conclude -- George W. Bush: Worst President EVER.

Yeah, Carter didn't stand up to the Iranians... he left the mullahs in power to fulminate decades of extreme Islamic terrorism.

Carter didn't wreck the economy? Obviously, someone doesn't remember 10% unemployment, 13% inflation, and 22% interest rates. And maybe someone thinks the 70% marginal income tax rates under Jimmy Carter were a good idea.

Under Carter's foreign policy, Nicaragua and Angola became Soviet client states.

And Jimmy has gone on as an ex-president to promote some of the most horrific terror regimes on the planet... including Kim Jong-Il, Yasser Arafat, and Robert Mugabe.

All things considered, there's at least two things wrong with the nic 'truth squad.'
