Kucinich: Obama could be impeached for attacking Libya


Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) says President Barack Obama did not have the constitutional authority to order U.S. forces to participate in an attack on Libya.

In a conference call with other liberal lawmakers Saturday, Kucinich asked why the U.S. missile strikes were not impeachable offenses, according to two Democratic lawmakers who spoke to Politico.

The U.S. unleashed a barrage of strikes against the Libyan regime's air defenses over the weekend, but ruled out using ground troops in what Obama called a "limited military action."

After taking a cautious stance on armed intervention in Libya's civil war, Obama ordered the attacks citing the threat posed to civilians by Moamer Kadhafi's forces and a UN-mandated no-fly zone endorsed by Arab countries.

This Democrat representative from Ohio is a notorious obstructionist. He would cut an arm and give it away to get publicity. The wannabe-president bug had bitten this desperate guy so badly that he became a living dead in Congress. Any waking hour of his day is a campaign to be nominated as a Democrat candidate for president. Congress is his headquarter for this personal campaign. If any limited military action is necessary to stop an aggression or prevent harm, in his freaking mind it needs the approval of Congress! That’s how incorrigible he is as an obstructionist feeding on our tax money.  Count more parasites like him, and you will have a clear idea why everything in politics and economics is rapidly progressing backward.

Dennis Kucinich is a real piece of work.He stands up and acts like he really wants to impeach Barry,and in the same breath he say`s that he dosn`t want to take him out of office...This is the kind of crap that run for office in the "Home of the Brave",and the "Land of the Free" ,and you wonder why America is about to go under.
