Rep. John Conyers starts a motion to impeach Bush

Hey, America, ready for another presidential impeachment session? You will have one if Rep. Hon Conyers has his way. Ranking House Judiciary Democrat Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) has introduced a motion to censure President Bush and Vice President Cheney for providing misleading information to Congress in advance of the Iraq war, failing to respond to written questions and potential violations of international law, RAW STORY has learned. The resolutions were quietly introduced Sunday evening along with a third resolution (HR 635) to create a Select Committee to investigate the administration’s intent to go to war prior to congressional authorization. The committee would also be charged with examining manipulation of pre-war intelligence, thwarting Congressional oversight and retaliatory attacks against critics. As part of this resolution, House Judiciary Democrats seek also to explore violations of international law as pertaining to detainee abuse and torture of prisoners of war. [...] The Select Committee seeks to subpoena the President and other members of the administration in hopes of ascertaining if impeachable offenses have been committed. Sources close to the Judiciary Committee indicate they believe this is the only avenue left after having written repeated letters requesting answers on matters ranging from the Downing Street Memos to the outing of covert CIA officer Valerie Plame Wilson. HR 635, which would create the select committee, could potentially recommend articles of impeachment against both the President and Vice President. I highly doubt this will be anything more than a publicity stunt. But if you are worried, the reoloutions are here, here and here!

Useful idiots, the whole lot of 'em. From Pelosi to Dean to this numbnut from Michigan, they're all very good at bickering, but when it comes to producing real alternative solutions to the problems at hand, they're all talk and no show. I lost count of how many liberals have abandoned their party and ideologies after 9/11, it's not funny.

I guess they really do want to become a minority that doesn't have enough members to fillbuster? They seem to forget that it isn't the 18% of liberals who vote them in it is the middle who are very disgusted with the democrats right now. I see 60+ Senator's and another 30 or so in the house come 2006. "Yeah, this hate bush worked so well in 2002 2004 let's try it again in 2006!" ROFLOL

The problem for those idiots isn't that the Bush Administration hasn't answered their endless questions. It's that the answers aren't what they wanted to hear.

"Tell us what we want you to, or we'll throw a tantrum! We will!"

Idiots!
