And This Man Wants to Be Our President?

"Barack Obama, to his discredit, said on June 28 that he opposes impeaching either Cheney or Bush.

'I think you reserve impeachment for grave, grave breaches, and intentional breaches of the President’s authority,' Obama said."

See Matthew Rothschild's article at the Progressive.

What country has Obama been living in? What presidential actions has he been following? What is more grave a breach of authority than torturing people and making this policy? Launching an immoral, illegal, unjust war based on lies? Refusing Congressional subpoenas, issuing hundreds of signing statements that negate Congressional acts, spying on hundreds of millions of Americans without warrant and without cause? Savaging FEMA, undermining New Orleans' levee system by slashing funds for repairs, allowing private interests to destroy necessary marshlands that are natural protectors against storms, allowing a fabled and storied city to be ravaged by Hurricane Katrina and not coming to people's aid in a timely fashion, then lying about what you did and knew? Military threats based on lies against Iran? Censoring science, breaching the Church/State divide?

What more do you need?
