Our Spineless Representatives

Dennis Kucinich presented 35 articles of impeachment against bush. His efforts have been kicked into no-mans land. Apparently it was sent to “committee” which according to Jack Cafferty on CNN pretty much guarantees it is dead.

Kucinich effort to impeach Bush kicked into limbo

WASHINGTON (CNN) — An attempt by Rep. Dennis Kucinich to impeach President Bush was kicked into legislative no-man’s land by members of his own party Wednesday.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Ohio introduced a resolution to impeach President Bush on Tuesday.
The House voted 251-166 to send the Ohio Democrat’s impeachment resolution to committee, a maneuver that allows the Democratic leadership to freeze the measure indefinitely.

The vote largely followed partisan lines, with 225 Democrats voting on Kucinich’s request to send the measure to committee for consideration.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has repeatedly said she would not support a resolution calling for Bush’s impeachment, saying such a move was unlikely to succeed and would be divisive.

All 166 votes in favor of opening up a House impeachment debate came from Republicans, apparently eager to bring up the vote immediately and paint Democrats as political creatures in a time of serious issues.

Kucinich introduced the resolution into the House on Tuesday night.
