I have always liked Rep. Dennis Kucinich out of Ohio. In fact I was a supporter of his brief run for President. He is not afraid to go against the grain which was evidenced by his coming out in support of Barack Obama right after withdrawing from the race.
Yesterday, against the leadership of the Democratic party, Republican arrogance and corruption general apathy and in front of an almost empty House chamber, Kucinich introduced 35 Articles of Impeachment against George W. Bush. I don't think people truly understand the chaos and destruction that this drug addicted spoiled frat boy and his minions have done to this country. These articles pointed out crimes from lying to get the country to invade Iraq, to mismanagement during the Katrina disaster, to Global warming and the illegal detention and torture of innocent people that Bush signed off on. These facts were laid out carefully by Kucinich in a nearly five hour presentation.
My question is where were the other Democrats? No one else found the courage to accompany Kucinich on his mission? Where is the Congressional Black Caucus on this? We as voters need to wake up and closely follow this so that we can demand action from our representatives. Bush and his accomplices must be brought forth to stand trial for their crimes against our country and against humanity. Those who died unnecessarily in Iraq, Afghanistan and in this country demand that we do.
Oh when you look this up, go to the European news sites, unfortunately many of the American news sites don't have the inclination or guts to give this the coverage that it deserves.
