Joe Biden says president should be impeached for attacking a country without Congressional authorization.

There is nothing worse in politics than a hypocrite, although there is nothing better when a hypocrite is reminded when his double standards must apply to himself as well. Unfortunately, we have way too many of them in places of high office. We have all read about the so-called "environmentalist" Al Gore who lectures everyone on the importance of conserving energy while he personally enjoys living in his energy consuming estate in Tennessee that reeks with a gluttony of excess. And the plethora of Democrat tax cheats in Congress and in Barack Hussein Obama's cabinet, the morally bankrupt politicians such as Democrat Senator John Edwards who think adultery is a sport or the phony war heroes such as Edwards running mate Democrat Senator John Kerry. Case in point today is a feature story on Newsmax about a campaign interview given by Democrat Senator Joe Biden criticizing President George Bush's invasion of Iraq.
1. Biden: Impeach President for Unauthorized Attack
Vice President Joe Biden has a very clear idea of what should happen to a president who orders U.S. military forces to launch an attack on a foreign country without congressional authorization: impeachment.
With some voices saying President Barack Obama should face impeachment for attacking Moammar Gadhafi’s forces in Libya, a videotape has surfaced from the 2007 campaign trail showing Biden threatening to impeach President George W. Bush if he attacked Iran without the approval of Congress.
“I have written an extensive legal memorandum with the help of a group of legal scholars who are sort of a stable of people, the best-known constitutional scholars in America, because for 17 years I was chairman of the Judiciary Committee,” Biden said in an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on “Hardball.”
"I asked them to put together [for] me a draft, which I'm now literally riding between towns editing, that I want to make clear and submit to the United States Senate pointing out the president has no authority to unilaterally attack Iran.
“And I want to make it clear, I want it on the record … if he does, as chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee and former chair of the Judiciary Committee, I will move to impeach him."
He went on to say: “I think the best deterrent is for the president to know, even at the end of his term, we would move and move to follow through with that so his legacy would be marred for all time if he acted in what was clearly, clearly an impeachable offense.
“In the absence of that, what happens is, and you're going to think I'm joking about this — I'm not. If you're going to impeach George Bush you better impeach Cheney first. Not a joke.”
Now if only someone in the mainstream news media would remind Vice-president Joe Biden of his view on unauthorized attacks and ask him how he thinks that applies to the present occupant of the White House. On the same subject, does anyone besides me get the feeling that the word hypocrite is a synonym for Democrat?

  1. Nelson,

    There is no question that hypocrisy is synonomous with democrat. They are totally devoid of personal reflection but at the same time belive that they own the franchise on knowledge.e
