Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) took to the House floor to claim that Democrats never tried to impeach former President Bush.
I ask my colleagues to oppose this resolution for it is in fact a veiled attempt at impeachment and it undermines the law that allows a president to do his job. A historical fact: President Bush pushed this nation into a war that had little to do with apprehending terrorists. We did not seek an impeachment of President Bush, because as an executive, he had his authority. President Obama has the authority.
I guess they were just kidding when Dennis Kucinich introduced a bill to impeach Bush, a bill Lee co-sponsored. They called the bill “Impeaching George W. Bush, President of the United States, of high crimes and misdemeanors.” But never mind.
