Representative Diane Watson commits to indorse impeachment in this video, but that is not the news flash we need to get out there! She also lays out an ulterior motive for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi not aggressively seeking impeachment proceedings against the Vice President and the President; subsequently exposing Pelosi’s own desire to remain Speaker of the House!
“I think I have singed on to every impeachment resolution that has come to me. Now, let me explain to you what is going on today in Congress. Someone gave me a note, it said “Indict, impeach, imprison” (applause). We have enough substantive evidence to impeach. What we don’t have is an agreement in the House to be able to get an impeachment motion off the floor. It would take 290 votes. We could get somewhere around, I’m looking at it from here, around 240 to 260. Till we can get that magic number of 290, it won’t move.
Now, our leader has looked at this issue, and her strategy is, our speaker, is be sure we take the White House and that we win 60 (more) seats. We will have the numbers for impeachment; we will have the numbers to override the veto like on SCHIP. So she is laying out a strategy now that would make that occur. But I am all for impeachment this moment.”
So what does this mean? It’s simple, though there seem to be many Dems who SAY they are all for impeachment, it would appear that Pelosi has made it quite clear that her intention is to milk this corrupt administration for all it is worth so that they regain control of the House in 2008 and she regains the role of Speaker!
Because, if, like Watson says, they have a Democratic President, why will they be worried about veto over-rides?
It is well known that there is usually a backlash against the party that brings impeachment proceedings, justified or not, in the next election cycle. Especially if they fail.
Pelosi is concerned that if this attempt does not succeed, that the Republicans would gain control of the House, and she would lose her seat as Speaker!
Let’s face it; if that is their best rational for not seeking impeachment, then Pelosi should be removed from office. She is putting her own self interest (or at BEST the interest of the PARTY) above the lives of those soldiers in harms way in an illegal war, and above the direct wishes of the American People! This is huge!
An inside look, on tape, into the partisan positioning that is keeping our soldiers dying in an illegal occupation, and allowing known criminals to avoid the due process of law that is mandated in the Constitution! All for political control in 2009!
Remove Pelosi! The law is the law! Impeachment is NOT A PARTISAN ISSUE! And if we have a leader who is AFRAID to due her duty as Speaker of the House, while Americans are courageously putting their lives on the line, then she must GO!
Put the word out to REMOVE PELOSI AS SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE! Before it is too late.
