I’m listening to clips of John McCain from my Randi Rhodes podcast and was taken aback. In his performance at Saddleback, John McCain said, in response to a question about Osama bin Laden:
No one, no one should be allowed to take thousands of American, innocent American lives
Really now, Senator McCain? Then if that is the case, you just justified the impeachment of George W. Bush. You see, Senator, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney ordered the forgery of documents that helped lead us to war with Iraq. Because of their lies, in the face of a prospect of NOT having a war, Bush and Cheney ordered this falsehood to promote their war of choice. As a result, over 4,000 brave American soldiers have died.
Now why is it we aren’t hearing this quote used to justify impeachment from our Democratic leadership?
This is the single position I can back McCain on! Of course Pelosi and Reid say that impeachment is off the table (unless we force it back on!).
