10. Back in the day- Kucinich was tough
But he has backed off of all of his promises.

He has promised to Introduce articles of Impeachment of Bush for over a year now, most recently at the State of the Union. Then he completely backed down. He even used it to raise funds for his re-election and then didn't come through with what he promised and has provided no explanation whatsoever. On the day of the SOTU, many activists were waiting in anticipation and he said nothing. It is really strange.

He also promised 9/11 hearings on insider trading. He used this to raise funds on the Alex Jones show and elsewhere, promising to do this...but he has done nothing to pursue it.

Kucinich use to be a hero of mine, I have supported him since 2002, but now he is just as disappointing as the rest.
I worked for his presidential campaign and he wasn't even trying. He just took donations and allowed his campaign to be run in the most pathetic disorganized manner. I am afraid he might be part of the dog and pony show. He use to give me so much hope, just knowing we had one Congressman fighting for US and the Constitution...
