Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Congressional moonbats want to impeach Obama?

Pass the popcorn!  😆  From Politico:

A hard-core group of liberal House Democrats is questioning the constitutionality of U.S. missile strikes against Libya, with one lawmaker raising the prospect of impeachment during a Democratic Caucus conference call on Saturday.

Reps. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), Donna Edwards (Md.), Mike Capuano (Mass.), Dennis Kucinich (Ohio), Maxine Waters (Calif.), Rob Andrews (N.J.), Sheila Jackson Lee (Texas), Barbara Lee (Calif.) and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D.C.) “all strongly raised objections to the constitutionality of the president’s actions” during that call, said two Democratic lawmakers who took part.

Kucinich, who wanted to bring impeachment articles against both former President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney over Iraq — only to be blocked by his own leadership — asked why the U.S. missile strikes aren’t impeachable offenses.

However, as Ed points out:

Traditionally, though, consultations with Congress have sufficed in the past. For instance, Congress didn’t specifically authorize Ronald Reagan to attack Libya in 1986 in Operation El Dorado Canyon, a retaliation for a terrorist bombing that killed American troops in Germany at a nightclub. Reagan consulted Congressional leadership before ordering the attack, an act of war by any definition. Presidents have conducted similar military actions without formal acts of Congress to authorize them, meaning it has a long precedent, even if it’s not necessarily a good idea. According to the report and Kucinich’s own objection, Obama did consult Congress before engaging in Operation Odyssey Dawn.

This will lead to nothing, of course, but I do enjoy some blue-on-blue action to start my week off right!  🙂

  1. At least these radical Democrats in Congress are consistent. More than I can say for the radicals in the MSM.

  3. blue on blue…a wonderful shade. Now if they would just keep going at it through the elections. Getting his own party to start impeachment proceedings would truly be a coup worth watching.

  4. I was thinking, the last thing we need is the Democrat moonbats making Obama look moderate.

    WTF? If they’re having doubts about their Messiah does it mean it’s about time for Shrillary to resign and save the Democrat party from Nobama in 2012?
