House Moonbats looking at Bush impeachment strategy

Moonbats in the US House who are married to the Downing Street memos are strategizing with a singular goal in mind: impeaching George W. Bush on charges of "high crimes and misdemeanors."

"If you read the record of the writing of the Constitution, ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ had a very particular meaning at the time of the drafting of the Constitution," Rep. Zoe Lofgren said at a forum held by Rep. John Conyers earlier this month.

"It certainly didn’t mean lying about sex," she complained, in quotes picked up by the Hill newspaper. "But it might well mean lying to the Congress about a large public purpose such as Iraq."

"We would like to see a member of Congress look into whether or not the president committed impeachable offenses," said John Bonifaz, a constitutional lawyer who co-founded the group AfterDowningStreet.org. "We’ve been having that discussion with a number of [congressional] offices," he explained.

Those who are on the impeachment bandwagon either blow past or ignore the fact that the Downing Street memos were for the most part (and by his own admission) "recreated" by the London newspaper reporter who made them public. The larger question that everyone seems to continue to igore: do the memos truly exist in full, or are they the embellished rantings of an anti-Bush/anti-Blair writer who's looking for attention?

We were taken into war fraudently, by extremists who planned to do it from their first day in office (see writings by former Treasury Secretary O'Neill and Terrorism Advisor Clarke).

These are capital crimes and require legal redress in an International Court of Law.

I don't know if you were ever part of a wartime killing machine, but I was. It changed me from a conservative to a liberal.

I guess we'd better keep Gitmo open for Bush, Wolfowitz, Fieth, Perle, Cheney, and the other draft-dodgers who sent our troops to kill the sons and daughters (and children) of Iraqis, for their oil.

Regime change in Iraq had been official U.S. policy since 1998, George. If the new administration "planned to do it from their first day in office," it was only because they agreed with a Clinton-era policy and believed (imagine!) that policies are made to be implemented.
