Dennis Kucinich isn’t really going to try and get President Obama impeached — he was just asking around:
“I asked the question as to whether that was an impeachable offense; that’s different than actually calling for an impeachment or inducing a resolution, which I am not intending to do,” Kucinich told Fox Business Network Thursday. “I am speaking to the limits of executive power.”
Kucinich said that, in 2007, then-Sen. Obama (D-Ill.) and then-Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.) had raised the specter of impeaching President George W. Bush over American military involvement in the Middle East.
“So I am in the same company with the now vice president and president with respect to the fact that the Constitution should be adhered to,” Kucinich continued.
Keep in mind that Kucinich most certainly did file articles of impeachment against President Bush, for waging a war he had bothered to get Congress to authorize. Of course, those articles also included Bush’s “offenses” against the environment, voting rights, Medicare, and the response to Hurricane Katrina.
I suppose when everything’s impeachable, nothing is.
