Another Dem uses the “I” word..

via: Raw Story

Sen. Joe Biden, the loquacious long-shot Democratic presidential candidate, warned President Bush Thursday that he would move for impeachment if the president unilaterally authorized a military strike against Iran.

“The President has no authority to unilaterally attack Iran and … if he does, as foreign relations committee chairman and former chairman of judiciary, I will move to impeach him,” Biden told a crowd of about 100 potential voters at a campaign stop in New Hampshire.

Biden said he is meeting with constitutional law experts and plans to send Bush a legal memo formally outlining his warning, according to Seacoast Online, which reported his comments.

The senior Delaware senator told the crowd that calls for Bush’s immediate impeachment were valid but may not have enough constitutional support to make them viable. He added that Bush wasn’t the only White House figure who deserves to be booted.

“If you’re going to impeach George Bush, you better impeach Cheney first,” Biden said, garnering applause from the crowd.

As much as I want to see Bush and Cheney impeached, this sure sounds like election year rhetoric and grandstanding by Senator (candidate) Biden. If he were serious, why doesn’t he speak up in support Kucinich’s Resolution H.R. 333 (now H.R. 799)?

  1. Same comment, different thread:

    Hmm, there were some critters defending Biden just the last week when I questioned his commitment to doing something other than running his mouth….

    Biden is a poseur.

  2. Not me, TtT! I can’t stand the guy. It’s great he’s saying some of the stuff he’s saying NOW, but he’s useless.

  3. It is a case of any port in a storm. Anything that would lead to the departure of the Despicable Duo would be progress.

  4. “If you’re going to impeach George Bush, you better impeach Cheney first,” Biden said, garnering applause from the crowd.

    Thank you, Captain Obvious.
