Bush should be impeached for lying about Iraq, Nader says

CHICAGO - Independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader called yesterday for President Bush to be impeached for "deceiving the American people night after night after night" about U.S. involvement in Iraq.

"When you plunge our country into war on a platform of fabrications and deceptions, and you bring back thousands of American soldiers who are sick, injured or dead, and that war is unconstitutionally authorized to begin with, Mr. Bush's behavior qualifies for the high crimes and misdemeanor impeachment clause of the Constitution," the 2000 Green Party presidential nominee said to applause from about 200 students at Columbia College Chicago.

Nader said President Clinton was impeached for "far less of an offense."

"Lying under oath is not a trivial offense, but it cannot compare with deceiving the American people night after night after night on national television, staging untruths and rejecting the advice of his advisers," he said.

2. my question is
Why weren't Democratic politicians saying this 6 months or a year ago? Why does it take Nader (who I don't really like) to bring up Democratic issues?

Kerry should get Nader to drop out by offering him a job as head speech writer.

3. And official spokesperson....
Nader mops the floor with RW shills. He won't allow them to shout him down and he shreds all their stupid talking points.

4. What a usurper, also-ran, Johnny come lately.
Ted Kennedy said the same thing yesterday. Nader can't even come up with his own campaign speeches. :eyes:

Better yet...where was Nader BEFORE Chimpy invaded Iraq?
