    Kerry Calls For Bush’s Impeachment

    From The Hotline.

    MA. Sen. John Kerry said last night that if Dems retake the House, there’s a “solid case” to bring “articles of impeachment” against President Bush for allegedly misleading the country about pre-war intelligence, according to several Dems who attended.

    Kerry was speaking at a holiday party for alumni of his WH ’04 bid.

    About 100 campaign vets gathered at Finn McCool’s bar in D.C. to hear him. In a short speech, Kerry praised Dems who were working on Senate and House campaigns, and then said, according to one listener: “If we take back the House, there’s a solid case to bring articles of impeachment against this president.” Another listener heard a slight variation: “If we win back the House, I think we have a pretty solid case to bring articles of impeachment against this President.” Kerry then quickly added, according to several in the audience, “Don’t tell anyone I said that.”

    It is starting to become a close contest between Al Gore and John Kerry on who has lost it more since they were beaten by President Bush….

      Kerry is so sad. White winter all over again.

      Another Sore Loserman!

      It would almost be worth the Dems taking the House to see this happen.

    4. Mike in Maryland says:

      Maybe Kerry had a few too many at the bar when he said that?

      In any event, I don’t foresee impeachment even with a Democratic Congress. Bush would be nearing the end of his term anyhow, and the public would likely backlash against the perceived overreaching (as they did against Clinton’s impeachment.) More likely Democrats would try to hang whatever wrongdoing they charge around the necks of Bush’s would-be GOP successors.

    5. Mike in Maryland says:

      Besides, the “don’t tell anyone” part of his statement indicates, to me, that Kerry probably wasn’t really serious about it.

      Assume that the dems win BOTH the house and senate by wide margins in 2006 and that they had the votes to impeach bush easily.

      does that mean cheney would be President Cheney đŸ™‚ (tee hee)

      i don’t think the dems have thought this completely through because one of the only people they HATE worse than bushie is cheney đŸ™‚

      oh and i abSOlutely believe they would impeach bush if they could. many really do HATE him

    7. CJ says:

      Hate is not a productive emotion

    8. Wally Lind says:

      Gore has definately won the contest to say nutty things, and has been very consistent about it, unlike Kerry. But an impeachment of Bush would be just like the Clinton Impeachment. Even staunchly conservative senators suddenly had to have strong evidence to vote “guilty”. The democrats won’t have the luxury of wild claims about the president, they will actually have to prove them, and not just to the satisfaction of senators. Also, many senators are going to be afraid that impeaching presidents will become a sport for the out-party. Wouldn’t that be fun?

    9. lisab says:

      “Hate is not a productive emotion ”

      very true, but i’m afraid many dems do hate bush. actually to the point that almost anything he proposes will automatically be considered bad.

      i hang out with lots of dems, trust me many many dems HATE him — and not just the guys — some women too. if bush announced that dec. 25th was christmas i’m sure some would claim it is just another attempt to create a theocracy in america đŸ™‚ and then they’d go off on a rant …

      check out daily kos, i don’t even go there anymore

      Just like he did with the war in Iraq,
      Kerry is now backing out from his statement after he was excoriated by the GOP for his comments, lamely using the excuse this time that he was just “joking.” No wonder Americans did not feel like electing a jokester for a president last year.JOHN KERRY TELLING THE TRUTH would now be an oxymoron in my dictionary.

      My late grandmother received a phone call from the “Friends of John Kerry” on Thursday. Although I wasn’t particularly interested in hearing their spiel, one must wonder what he is raising money for…
