Videos: Impeachment showdown in the House

posted at 4:08 pm on January 23, 2008 by Bryan

Michelle just put these clips up, and they’re important. They’re both from C-SPAN this morning, first Rep. Dennis Kucinich jumping off the Soros-funded “study” to make his case for impeaching President Bush.

And then getting his hand smacked for it by Rep. Cliff Stearns.

And with that, Kucinich’s Bush-deranged remarks are stricken from the record. Thanks to these clips, his asininity stays on permanent display for all the world to see.

I think it’s high time Congress let Kucinich lead an impeachment drive. Let Denny K trot out his Soros-funded “study” and let the Republicans counter with everything that Horowitz & co have compiled at Discover the Network. Let Denny K accuse Bush & Cheney of lying about Iraq, and let the Republicans counter with clip after clip after bloody clip of everyone in the Clinton administration taking the exact same line on Iraq that Bush took. Bring all those Clintonistas in and get them under oath about that 1998 town hall meeting at Ohio State. Ask them why they were there to promote taking action against Iraq. What was that about?

Let’s have that fight, Democrats. Any time you want. But not in the press, not anymore. They’re not a fair spectator. Let’s have it out in Congress where everything said and entered is on the record and under oath. And let’s see what becomes of whacknuts like Dennis Kucinich and let’s see what’s left of his “Bush LIED” schtick.

Yes, but on the House floor Dems could be countered by facts, figures, quotes and testimony. What fun would that be?

Yes, please. It’s about time this fight is REALLY had.

Rick on January 23, 2008 at 4:13 PM

So January 28th he’s introducing articles of impeachment, correct?
This oughta be fun.

Shouldn’t he be looking for alien spacecraft? Or perhaps hanging out with that wife of his?

Or maybe, just maybe the government could actually accomplish something useful instead of crap like this.

mjk on January 23, 2008 at 4:18 PM

Denny Kookinich doesn’t have the stones. He’s a gutless demogogue that will lead the surrender of the west to Islamo-fascism.

Leonidas Hoplite on January 23, 2008 at 4:19 PM

Wow. He actually SAYS Bush lied, people died. Doesn’t he know how laughable that has been proven to be? I figured he’d be more subtle.

TX Mom on January 23, 2008 at 4:19 PM

Why do I keep thinking that he is the demon seed of Mr. Spock (except without the logic)?

Dr.Cwac.Cwac on January 23, 2008 at 4:20 PM

Bring it on I say. President Cheney has a nice ring to it.

Mike Honcho on January 23, 2008 at 4:21 PM

Bryan, you are right on. It is time to bring it on and the place is on the record, on the floor of congress. Let the blood fall where it may.

Wade on January 23, 2008 at 4:21 PM

This proves without a doubt, you can’t believe a midget with a script. Try to imagine the kind of person who would vote for this obviously disturbed person. It only supports why freedom of speech is so important…it makes the idiots so easy to see.

volsense on January 23, 2008 at 4:22 PM

Kucinich is mentioned quite a bit over at Discover the Networks

Imagine what he could do for the U.S.!

scalleywag on January 23, 2008 at 4:24 PM

Two things wrong happened here. The first is that little Dennis’s alien handlers let him out without his medication and tin foil hat. The second is that apparently no one is enforcing the rule of that “if you can’t speak at the podium on the House floor without the use of a booster, you don’t get to speak.”

What a funny little man. Funny strange, not funny ha ha.

Brass Pair on January 23, 2008 at 4:24 PM

Love that first screen-cap of Dennis; the look on his face says alot…

“If I can’t be President, then no one will…”

I agree, it is high time. Not only that, time to start the impeachment train for traitors like Jay Rockefeller who got caught figuring out how to politicize classified intelligence information to further the candidacy of the “rat” nominee in 2004. If that isn’t blatant disregard for his oath of office I don’t know what is.

This is exactly what we need to fire up the base.

Everyone needs to send an email to Kucinich urging him to folluw up!

Sept. 12, 2002, Democrat Senator Fritz Hollins introduces into the Senate record an Iraqi newspaper editorial(state funded obviously) from July 21, 2001 , where they predicted in Iraq the 9/11 attacks and the targets through symbolism in the newspaper. Its in the Senate record, pre-Iraq war and pre-politcization.

Great post, Bryan.

Yes please please please please I want them to bring out the “hear no truth, speak no truth, see no truth, steal archive papers” four clowns to testify.

Brat on January 23, 2008 at 4:30 PM

If it’s an impeachable offense for Bush, wouldn’t it also be impeachable for every senator and house member who said the same thing before their chamber? I say we turn the whole thing into a congress-wide cage match.

Spolitics on January 23, 2008 at 4:34 PM

Yes, let the truth come out…..record it for posterity….put these idiots in their place where the MSM (sic) can’t manipulate it to their liking.

Fuzzball on January 23, 2008 at 4:36 PM

No, no ,no, he didn’t just quote the bible did he?

RobertInAustin on January 23, 2008 at 4:38 PM

the GOP in congress should grow a pair and call Kucinich bluff and get all this out and on the record.

jp on January 23, 2008 at 4:38 PM

The Congressional Record is hardly an unbiased and accurate record of proceedings.

CSpan + video capture software, however, is a great record.

It would take the MSM to make it happen. The GOP could grow a pair like John Holmes and the MSM wouldn’t let it see the light of day.

custer on January 23, 2008 at 4:40 PM

The little kook has been busy this Congress.

From THOMAS

H.CON.RES.23 : Expressing the sense of Congress that the President should not order an escalation in the total number of members of the United States Armed Forces serving in Iraq.
Sponsor: Rep Kucinich, Dennis J. [OH-10] (introduced 1/10/2007) Cosponsors (35)

2. H.RES.333 : Impeaching Richard B. Cheney, Vice President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors.
Sponsor: Rep Kucinich, Dennis J. [OH-10] (introduced 4/24/2007) Cosponsors (24)

H.RES.799 : Impeaching Richard B. Cheney, Vice President of the United States, of high crimes and misdemeanors.
Sponsor: Rep Kucinich, Dennis J. [OH-10] (introduced 11/6/2007) Cosponsors (None)

So far, he’s introduced two bills to draw up articles of impeachment against Cheney. Curious as to why there are no cosponsors on HR799?

H.R.808 : To establish a Department of Peace and Nonviolence.
Sponsor: Rep Kucinich, Dennis J. [OH-10] (introduced 2/5/2007) Cosponsors (67)

There’s the great laugh! The Department of Peace. It must be run by Barney the Purple Dinosaur and the Lollipop Guild. Since he is an amnesty shill, I bet Dora the Explorer is in the running.

H.R.1234 : To end the United States occupation of Iraq immediately.
Sponsor: Rep Kucinich, Dennis J. [OH-10] (introduced 2/28/2007) Cosponsors (2)

H.R.2707 : To reauthorize the Underground Railroad Educational and Cultural Program.
Sponsor: Rep Kucinich, Dennis J. [OH-10] (introduced 6/13/2007) Cosponsors (8)

H.R.3183 : — Private Bill; For the relief of Theresa and Stefan Sajac.
Sponsor: Rep Kucinich, Dennis J. [OH-10] (introduced 7/25/2007) Cosponsors (None)

Polish couple that overstayed their visas……for 20 years. They are illegal aliens, have had 5 children (all US citizens), and were caught when the wife went to renew her driver’s license. The husband has been ordered deported by ICE.

H.R.3875 : To permit the Secretary of Labor to make an administrative determination of the amount of unpaid wages owed for certain violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act in the New Orleans region after Hurricane Katrina.
Sponsor: Rep Kucinich, Dennis J. [OH-10] (introduced 10/17/2007) Cosponsors (7)

H.R.4060 : To assist States in establishing a universal prekindergarten program to ensure that all children 3, 4, and 5 years old have access to a high-quality full-day, full-calendar-year prekindergarten education.
Sponsor: Rep Kucinich, Dennis J. [OH-10] (introduced 11/1/2007) Cosponsors (39)

Remember, it’s for the children.

Dr.Cwac.Cwac on January 23, 2008 at 4:40 PM

A little stroll down memory lane. Here’s what David Kay had to say about all this in Jan 2004 in an Interview with Tom Brokaw:

TB: David, as you know, a lot of the president’s political critics are going to say, “This is clear evidence that he lied to the American people.”

DK: Well, Tom, if we do that, I think we’re really hurting ourselves. Clearly, the intelligence that we went to war on was inaccurate, wrong. We need to understand why that was. I think if anyone was abused by the intelligence it was the president of the United States rather than the other way around.

TB: The president described Iraq as a gathering threat — a gathering danger. Was that an accurate description?

DK: I think that’s a very accurate description.

TB: But an imminent threat to the United States?

DK: Tom, an imminent threat is a political judgment. It’s not a technical judgment. I think Baghdad was actually becoming more dangerous in the last two years than even we realized. Saddam was not controlling the society any longer. In the marketplace of terrorism and of WMD, Iraq well could have been that supplier if the war had not intervened.

Dennis Kucinich needs to be locked in a padded room. For good.

Hey, even Satan quoted Scripture.

Perhaps his amazon will roll over on him some night.

BL@KBIRD on January 23, 2008 at 4:58 PM

YESSS! Central Florida representative smacks Kucinich in the face! Not my district, but close by!

I want to know how crazy you have to be to get into the Kucinich camp. Who exactly ran against him? Mussolini? When did he ever seem like a good choice for Congress?

P.S. Posters following my comment: please ignore (and don’t respond to) froghat. Clearly, he’s part of the Venusian bloc that’s backing Special-K.

If they do a remake of ‘Casablanca’, they have to give Peter Lorre’s part to Kucinich.

I will not defend Bush if he is targeted for impeachment.

Maybe some of his 20 million Illegal Alien friends will support him!

TheSitRep on January 23, 2008 at 5:15 PM

Like Nixon before him, liberals don’t realize that Bush is their best friend when it comes to growing government.

Valiant on January 23, 2008 at 5:32 PM

Hey, we laugh at this and all, but the Washington State lawmakers are gettin’ ready to write up an impeachment resolution (like they don’t have ferries and bridges and other stuff to worry about here…)

Thanks for the post, Bryan and Michelle! Good laughs.

If bush is found to have lied, will he have the same punishment as president Clinton?

Ouch!!! Can’t disbar Bush either, because he’s not a lawyer. Of course, someone has to prove that Bush lied in the first place, so not too much to worry about there.

Snidely Whiplash on January 23, 2008 at 6:57 PM

Somehow I don’t doubt for a second that these impeachment goons would love to waste our tax money and everyones time on B.S. such as this, I’m sure it would be drawn out for a long enough time that most wouldn’t be able to recall what started it in the first place. In spite of that, I’m sooo tired of the “Bush lied, everyone died” crapola and I’d love to see that mantra shoved up their poop chute.

4shoes on January 23, 2008 at 9:06 PM

I thought I recognized that Dennis guy. I saw him in a tree baking cookies with a bunch of small odd fellows.
On another note Bush should be impeached for not pardoning Ramos and Compeon. The injustice is sickening.

Buttercup on January 23, 2008 at 10:14 PM

Some needs to remind certified yoohoos like Denny The Kook that Bush has less than a few months remaining in office and all this impeachment talk is now totally irrelevant.

pilamaye on January 24, 2008 at 7:57 AM

Denny was quoting from the Bible…glad he’s found another use for it, other than using it to achieve mic altitude, reading scripture also might upset his cult followers, I mean base.
