Thompson Votes To Impeach
Looks like our very own congressdude, Mike Thompson, joined the movement to impeach President Bush and voted for Dennis Kucinich's resolution for impeachment. This is a bit of a surprise to me, not so much the motion to impeach, but that Thompson went along with it. I'm also surprised that it passed in the House in the first place.
I might not be as much of a Bush hater as some, but the idea of cherry- picking evidence and embellishing the case to go to war is nothing new. I think Bill Clinton (and nearly everybody else, it seems) did the same thing when the case was made to attack Yugoslavia. The players- that- be over there have been slashing each other's throats for centuries, yet we cherry picked incidents to make it sound like it was all one side's fault.
And I'm sure some are now wondering, as I am, if we might have picked the wrong side in Yugoslavia to fight for after it was all said and done.
In case any of you are interested, the roll call vote on the impeachment resolution can be found here. Interesting enough, yet again, is that Congressman and past Republican presidential candidate, Ron Paul, also voted for the resolution.
