McGovern: Time to impeach Bush
Posted: 08:42 PM ET CNN

McGovern is calling for Bush and Cheney to be impeached.

WASHINGTON (CNN) – George McGovern, the Democratic Party's 1972 nominee for president, is calling on Congress to impeach President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.

And in an editorial in Sunday's Washington Post, McGovern writes the case for impeaching the current president is "far stronger" than the case made against former President Richard Nixon — the man who soundly defeated McGovern in the general election match up.

"Bush and Cheney are clearly guilty of numerous impeachable offenses," McGovern writes. "They have repeatedly violated the Constitution. They have transgressed national and international law. They have lied to the American people time after time.

"Their conduct and their barbaric policies have reduced our beloved country to a historic low in the eyes of people around the world," he continued.

Not many remember that George McGovern was a REAL WWII war hero, a B-24 pilot in Italy, who flew many combat missions and who would have sacrificed his own life for the sake of his crew in a damaged aircraft when he made them all bail out over the airfield before he attempted to land the airplane.

I guess Nixon's story that he was a Commie got better press.

Col., Yea, and the neo-cons trashed both Kerry and McCains military history and patriotism and it seemed to have worked.
Just goes to show how fucking ignorant the proletariat Amurikkkan electorate is.
