Despite the best efforts of the Democratic leadership, impeachment was indeed on the table this week in Washington. On Tuesday, Congressmember and presidential hopeful Dennis Kucinich nearly forced the full House to vote on his measure to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney. House Resolution 333 accuses Cheney of deliberately manipulating intelligence and deceiving the public to build support for the invasion of Iraq and now towards a possible attack on Iran. Twenty-one House Democrats have supported the bill, but it’s met fierce opposition from the Democratic leadership.Democratic leaders were able to send the bill to the House Judiciary Committee, where they expect it to languish. In a bizarre sequence, Republican lawmakers initially voted against tabling the bill after their leadership apparently decided a House debate would embarrass the Democrats. The bill was eventually sent to committee after a back-and-forth wrangling between Kucinich and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer.Democratic leaders have famously declared that impeachment is off the table. But their view does not fall in line with recent polling figures. An American Research Group poll in July found that fifty-four percent of Americans support beginning impeachment proceedings against Vice President Cheney. Seventy-four percent of Democrats were also in favor.Congressmember Dennis Kucinich of Ohio introduced the measure. He joins me now from Washington.

  • Rep. Dennis Kucinich, Ohio Congressman and Democratic presidential candidate. Introduced House measure to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney.

    • You are right. There are many, many very informative stories that everyone “should” be aware of, unfortunately, most people still get their “news” (if one can even call it that anymore) from their TV sets. Propaganda for the most part. Well, we do our best in trying to get the word out.

  1. PEOPLE!

    There are over a MILLION HITS on this amazing website, and so few of you speak out.

    WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM?

    Was the internet invented so you could sit on the sidelines and observe, or is its amazing interactivity an opportunity for you to ORGANIZE and actually SAY SOMETHING??

    Dandelion Salad is selflessly devoting to us, so that we get the real news, and you consumers just sit there and suck it up, and have nothing to offer whatsoever??

    Kudos to you who post in reply to these amazing entries, but those of you who read, and have nothing whatsoever to say? FOR SHAME.

    Good you read, but if you don’t react to this stuff, you are just part of the problem.

    POST YOUR THOUGHTS to these amazing posts people! Lo is the perhaps the best we’ve ever had. YOU need to supply some response and acknowledgement of her amazing sacrifice to give us this incredible information.

    DON’T TAKE IT FOR GRANTED!

    • You are too kind, Natureboy. I do appreciate your wonderful support. It is exhausting some days, posting more stories of death and destruction, torture and war. I work too many hours, that’s for sure, but do feel that this info needs to be shared. I don’t mind if people don’t comment, but would prefer that they email the link to the story to someone else, or post the link on a message board, or bulletin. Got to get the word out.

    • Was thinking, this post is from 13 months ago, so not likely to have many new viewers here unless it comes up in a search or something. Or perhaps anyone following comments on the RSS feed for comments.

  5. Watching this whole process I find interest waning. The tactics taken to get attention were overdone. The fence sitters didn’t want to be seen as zealots and didn’t want to stand on a corner yelling at cars. I just want the next 14 months to go by quickly.
