Dem Wants To Undo Clinton Impeachment

From The Hill:

Dem wants House to ‘disavow’ Clinton impeachment

By Jordan Fabian – 11/03/10

On the day after Republicans reclaimed control of Congress, a Democratic lawmaker said he will introduce a measure that would "disavow" the impeachment of former President Clinton.

Rep. Chaka Fattah (Pa.) said that the resolution is necessary so that Democrats and Republicans can work together in a bipartisan fashion.

"As we enter a period in which bipartisanship will be a major priority for the Congress, it is vital that we disavow the most highly partisan example of the politics of personal destruction in the recent history of this House," Fattah said in a statement.

The vote to impeach Mr. Clinton was bi-partisan. Five Democrats voted for impeachment.

The last time they were in power, House Republicans impeached Clinton for allegedly perjuring himself over his supposed affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Clinton, only the second president in history to be impeached, was eventually acquitted at trial in the Senate.

There is still no denying that Mr. Clinton committed perjury in a trial. But if Congress really wants to do something along these lines to establish a new bi-partisan tone, why not disavow Mr. Clinton’s acquittal? 

Critics slammed the impeachment as a political move by the GOP, but the impeachment did not torpedo the GOP: they controlled the House for another eight years.

Another minor detail that is often lost to history thanks to our news media.

Fattah said he is introducing the resolution on Nov. 15, the first day of the lame-duck session, noting that Clinton’s impeachment took place during the December 1998 lame-duck session.

Republicans have already said they do not plan to impeach President Obama when they take power next year.

Which is quite a different tune from what we heard from the exultant Democrats back in 2006. None of whom were ever chastised by our watchdog media at the time.

By the way, look at Mr. Fatah’s (born Arthur Davenport) Congressional district. This is how such radical miscreants get into Congress — and worse, remain there for decades.

Gerrymandering has destroyed our system of representative government. It has to be stopped. This should be a top majority for the next Congress.

    I don’t want to impeach Barry, I want him tried for treason and crimes against the people.

    Arty, all this talk of “cooperation” and “getting along” seems to be the democrats new mantra. Why is that?

    Is it possible that an overreaching and downright OBNOXIOUS democrat-run government that kept telling the republicans to stuff it and held closed-door meetings without republican participation may now result in a backlash that you (so rightfully and correctly) fear?

    Well, man up, Arty. If you only came to play when your side is winning then you didn’t show up for the game. Now you have to feel what it’s like to be told to shut up and take it for awhile until this nation is set back to rights. And, owing to the far-reaching damage your party has done, that may take several generations.

    I, for one, am in no mood to be accommodating to any more socialist claptap and boogered up ideas on how people like you can get more “free money” from hardworking people like me (and over 50% of this nation). How about you just sit there and listen—you might learn something.

    Or, not, as the case may be. I suspect the latter.

    Surely you jest there Art. Freeing the draft dodging, womanizing, philandering dope smoker for getting caught lying about the disappearing cigar trick? Supposed affair with Monica?
    You are nuts!! Are you on crack, dude?

    This is the reason we send you clowns packing. For 2 years you all have watched the Economy tank (with glee). You get your walking papers telling you to haul ass outta town and all you Lame #ucks want to do is exonerate Bubba.


    God you all are stupid!!
