honorable representative from Arizona, on civility levels these days:
“Not even in our worst days as Democrats did we demean and attempt to cripple the office of president.”
…sayeth the man who cosponsored articles of impeachment against then-Vice President Dick Cheney. In early 2008, no less, which means that Grijalva had no better motive here than to try to take a cheap shot against the President. By proxy. When it was already clear that when it came to this particular subject Bush was right, and Grijalva was wrong. And if you don’t believe me, go ask President Obama, who has c0ntinued the war policies* that Grijalva wanted to impeach Cheney over. You won’t get a straight answer from Obama, mind – but then, when did we ever?
We will now pause while various antiwar faction members try to claim that attempting to impeach the Vice President should not be seen as an attempt to “demean and attempt to cripple the office of president.” I’d say forgive them – after all, at this point this is all that they have – but I find that I have very little forgiveness in my heart for people who’d happily throw any number of non-Westerners onto the pyre, just to win an election…
