Dems demand FDR impeachment
Those on the Bubble Should beware of the Pinheads
The New Year has arrived and blood is gushing through semi frozen rivers. Democrats, mouths frothing, are closing in on GWB with impeachment frenzy on crazed minds.
Even in their lynch mob fury a few sobering voices can be heard. "An impeachment, to be effective, must have precedent for high crimes and misdemeanors", said Hillary referring to her experiences on the Watergate staff and staff wife to Bill during his excellent impeachment adventure.
Hillary convinced DNC head, the distinguished Dr. Howard Dean that they should first go after past presidents that committed high crimes. They decided on the obvious, Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
If they could pin a posthumous impeachment on a Dem Icon, then Bush would soon be clearing brush in Sing Sing, next to guys that make Tookie look like a Cub Scout.
Dean and Hillary pulled the Democrats together better than a lobbyist with a saddlebag of Indian casino wampum.
"Yeah, he STOLE two elections, but he won't get away from us this time. I'll stick him in a lockbox and throw away the key!" growled a bearded, bloated ALGORE. "I'm reporting for impeachment duty!" insisted Kerry. "I'll vote against impeachment before I vote for it, just to screw them up" he said, muddying up his position so even the Swifties will be torpedo-less to submerge him.
You Can't be the Top Hangman Without Pulling Some Strings
To insure a fair trial, after the House vote, Babs Boxer convinced Judge Ito to shed the black robes and defend Franklin. After all, one of the charges was that FDR kept much of the US citizens of Japanese descent in concentration camps for 3 years. I don't believe THAT specific law was in the Constitution back then. Now there's some captive spying for you. They didn't fool around back then! Hey barbed wire, wiretap…what's the difference?
The second charge against FDR was that he was either criminally incompetent or must have known and approved of Pearl Harbor in advance of the attack. After all if they were to pin 9/11 on Bush after only 8 months in office, wouldn't they have to convict Roosevelt of the same crime after 7&1/2 years at the White House? Heck, before Pearl, the Japs, were running out of kamikaze instructors in the midst of collecting Asia Pacific countries and pruning them like bonsai trees of any and all dissidents. Last time I watched the History Channel, Hawaii was smack dab in the middle of the Pacific. I believe that to be true as far back as 1941, maybe even earlier.
Count three consists of the illegality of us going to war with Germany, despite their non attack on the US. I mean why not negotiate with the Krauts and the Italians so you could focus on the one that attacked America, the Japs? Hey were looking at 407,000 US military deaths in a two front WW2, compared to 2170 in the war on terror. You can't try Bush without jumping all over Delano for that.
Of course, the Dems would never think to charge FDR with the true crime of his presidency; that of presiding over a State Dept., so full of "advising" Russian spies that FDR gave Uncle Joe the entirety of Eastern Europe, lock, stock, and caviar. Now, who exactly won WW2? I forget. That alone froze the world and the USA in particular, in a cold war nuclear arms race for the next 40 years. The lives of Poles, Bulgars, and East Germans were transferred to a tyrant just short of Adolph.
To this day, there's still evidence of Soviet influence here. The NY Times looks every bit as if it's still under the management of Pravda. (Guess my dream as the resident conservative pundit for the Gray Lady is out.)
Sounds like a winner to me! After the Dems lynch FDR, the table will be set. W will be like the lad in the on-deck circle in a little league game. Dems will call Batter up! Bush will be forced to walk to the plate empty handed.
Hey, but JUST to be sure, the libiots should be thorough.
Pelosi and Reid will insist on impeaching Lincoln, JFK, Carter, and Bill Clinton for a record second time (now THAT'S a legacy!).
All committed "crimes" similar to Bush.
At least Bush and Lincoln could claim they were at war trying to save American lives when they asserted, what they thought was their lawful constitutional duty as the President of the United States.
Even a dog knows that the way to get a leg up is to mark your territory.
