An Ohio Democratic lawmaker and former presidential candidate has presented articles of impeachment against President George W. Bush to Congress.

Thirty-five articles were presented by Rep. Dennis Kucinich to the House of Representatives late Monday evening, airing live on C-SPAN.

“The House is not in order,” said Kucinich to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), upon which Pelosi pounded her gavel.

“Resolved,” Kucinich then began, “that President George W. Bush be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and that the following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate. …

“In his conduct while President of the United States, George W. Bush, in violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of president of the United States, and to the best of his ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has committed the following abuses of power…”

The first article Kucinich presented, and many that followed, regarded the war in Iraq: “Article 1 – Creating a secret propaganda campaign to manufacture a false case for war against Iraq.”

    There hasn’t been much about impeachment in the U.S. mainstream media that has led enough elected officials to support the majority will of the people.

    I haven’t seen much in the foreign press concerning views of people around the world about impeachment, U.S. citizens and the officials they elected.

    I hope journalists from other countries investigate U.S. congressional leaders and report the views of their people on this important issue effecting the globe.

    It’s pretty sad. The only recourse would seem to be in the hands of the people to call their congressional representatives to tell them of their support for Kucinich’s articles, to call the media, to work incessantly to get this on the front burner.

    It seems to me that this is happening a little too late. There is no doubt in my mind, that he will not be impeached. George Bush has managed with the help of the Republicans in Congress, to mess this country up in a big way! And I don’t think that his cronies will let anything happen to him for fear of what will happen to them too.
