It’s rare to hear any politician take a stand on a major issue, but that’s what makes it so welcome to hear. As quoted in a NewsAndPolicy.com article, Dennis Kucinich recently stated “If Congress does not impeach President Bush for intentionally misleading the public, the next president should hand over Bush and his administration to law enforcement officials.”
Kucinich told the crowd of more than 500 people that if Congress does not impeach President Bush for intentionally misleading the public, the next president should hand over Bush and his administration to law enforcement officials – a suggestion that was answered with cheers and a standing ovation from the audience.
Kucinich said he would create a policy of “strength through peace,” which would focus on diplomacy, open dialogue and “at its core, would reject war as an instrument of policy.”
“Somehow war and strength became equated, but now war and stupidity are being equated,” he said. “We cannot buy into this mentality that the war is going to be with us for a long time.”
Hopefully this message speaks for itself. I don’t think it’s much of a stretch to compare Dubya with some of the world’s greatest criminals. Certainly, a trial would help make this clear to the few remaining people who support this President. Now, it’s time to see if any of this will have any real effect on U.S. politics (does anyone want my guess?).
