Buchanan calls for Bush Impeachment

So many reasons to impeach and so little time. Hat tip to Shakespeare's Sister: (click through for links)

Pat Buchanan, a leading conservative pundit and former presidential adviser, quietly suggested House Republicans mull impeaching President Bush -- though not for the liberals' cause celebre, Iraq -- but rather for what he sees as Bush's 'criminal' failure to stem the tide of illegal immigrants, RAW STORY has discovered.

"We are being invaded," the reactionary Republican declared in his column Monday, "and the president of the United States is not doing his duty to protect the states against that invasion."

[...]

"Bush is chief executive of the United States. It is his duty to enforce the laws," he adds. "Can anyone fairly say he is enforcing the immigration laws? Those laws are clear. People who break in are to be sent back. Yet, more than 10 million have broken in with impunity."

One of my favorite magazines has the full story, Would a Bill of Impeachment Wake-Up President Bush?:

A president like Teddy Roosevelt would have led the Army to the border years ago. And if Fox did not cooperate, T.R. would have gone on to Mexico City. Nor would Ike, who deported all illegal aliens in 1953, have stood still for this being done to the country he had defended in war.

What are these Bush Republicans afraid of? Dirty looks from the help at the country club?

I managed to find one sentence of near sanity in the article:

His legislative agenda for the fall includes a blanket amnesty for illegals, so they can be exploited by businesses who want to hold wages down as they dump the social costs for their employees -- health care, schools, courts, cops, prisons -- onto taxpayers.

Any port in a storm. If Buchanan wants to impeach Bush over illegal immigration that's fine with me.

Its About Time Somebody Did
Yes, just heard on the phone with my Mom that Buchanon called for Bush's impeachment.  My Mom, not being too political, did not remember why.  I prodded her a little, as to why.  Was it the war? I asked.  She seemed tentative.  Then I said, was it because of illegal immigration?  She said, "Oh yes, that's it."

The reason the Bush Crime Family does not care about illegal immingration is because it ensures their corporate friends and wealthy elites a steady supply of cheap compliant labor who don't think of inconvenient things like asking their bosses to abide by the minimum wage and safety laws.  

These compliant workers are afraid to talk back to the bosses, (most native Americans these days are as well).  It ensures cheap labor, hinders union organization, (is there such a thing as unions anymore), and nannies under the table for upper-class families.

But Bush, who sent this nation into Iraq as part of the so-called War on Terror, stands idly by while millions of illegals, undocumented aliens, pour across the Mexican border.  Among these could be terrorists and Al Queda, surely there are drug traffickers and all kinds of criminal activity.

Its about time conservativew who claim to put America first call their president on this.

Of course, us liberals have know for years the real reasons to impeach Bush are his lies that brought this nation into war and chronic corruption.  But show me one national Democrat with the guts to risk rightwing Fascist wrath by calling for the impeachment of Bush.

Shakespeare's Sis has about twenty reasons for impeachment including:

Criminal stupidity

Re: Its About Time Somebody Did
Unfortunately, only reasons one, three, four, and eight are actually against the law.

Re: Its About Time Somebody Did
Let's see:

Lying to take the country to war

Abu Ghraib

Gitmo

Possible involvement of highest advisors in CIA outing

Those all look more legitimate justifications for articles of impeachment than immigration. I can settle for a lousy five reasons to impeach Bush.

Re: Its About Time Somebody Did
It doesn't matter if Bush actually gets impeached. We know that's not going to happen. The important point is that somebody has finally said the "I" word out loud.

Too bad it wasn't a Democrat. Actually, I think one or two Dems have called for Bush's impeachment, but the M$M refuses to cover it.

Re: Its About Time Somebody Did
Someone already DID say it out loud. And, yes, he's a Democrat.

Ramsey Clark, LBJ's attorney general, has a group called VoteToImpeach. Check it out.

Re: Its About Time Somebody Did
I was hoping there was a Democrat currently in Congress, but Ramsey Clark is better than nothing. If more than one or two Democrats had a brain or a spine, they could theoretically be dangerous.

Did you sign the petition yet, Gary?

Re: Its About Time Somebody Did
To tell you the truth, I'm not real big on petitions. Especially with this President and this Congrss, they are pretty much a waste of time.

The only purpose a petition serves it to put political pressure on politicians to implement the will of the American people. Republicans aren't the least bit concerned about petitions or any other expression of popular dissent. I think it will take a half dozen upsets in 2006 to get their attention. Assuming they haven't already rigged the vote counting machines.

As far as I can tell, Democrats aren't all that impressed by the opinion of Democratic voters, so why should Republicans care?

Calling Buchanon a racist
The above blog seems to say that the reasons for Buchanon calling for Bush's impeachment should not be immigration but a host of other issues.  While I agree with the other issues, I do not agree that illegal immigration should not be one of them.  Calling Buchanon a racist because of his opposition to illegal immigration is not productive.  While Buchanon may have his share of prejudices, as we all do if we are honest, it does not mean that opposition to illegal racism is racist de facto.

One can be opposed to illegal immigration because of the security threat to the USA, the impact of illegals on unemloyment and lowering wages for legal Americans, the cost of caring for illegals health, education, etc.

I oppose illegal immigration for all those reasons.  However, this has been going on for a long time, and Clinton looked the other way too.  But Clinton did not invade an innocent country based on lies and a so-called war on terror.

The real reason to impeach Bush is his lying to get us into an illegal war and the rampant corruption of his Administation, as well as his abuse of civil liberties and the war crimes he has encouraged and presided over in the mercenary abuse of prisoners in Iraq.

Re: Calling Buchanon a racist
Please notice my note to (click through for links).

Here is the article Shake's Sis links to about Buchanan and racism and a very few samples of Buchanan quotes that are provided:

ON AFRICAN-AMERICANS

     After Sen. Carol Moseley Braun blocked a federal patent for a Confederate flag insignia, Buchanan wrote that she was "putting on an act"
by associating the Confederacy with slavery: "The War Between the States was about independence, about self-determination, about the right of a
people to break free of a government to which they could no longer give allegiance,"  Buchanan asserted.  "How long is this endless groveling
before every cry of'racism' going to continue before the whole country collectively throws up?" (syndicated column, 7/28/93)

     On race relations in the late 1940s and early 1950s:

"There were no politics to polarize us then, to magnify every slight. The 'negroes' of
Washington had their public schools, restaurants, bars, movie houses, playgrounds and churches; and we had ours."
Right from the Beginning, Buchanan's 1988 autobiography, p. 131)

ON IMMIGRANTS AND PEOPLE OF COLOR:

     "If we had to take a million immigrants in, say Zulus, next year, or Englishmen, and put them up in Virginia, what group would be easier to
assimilate and would cause less problems for the people of Virginia?"
"This Week With David Brinkley," 1/8/91)

ON JEWS:

     Buchanan referred to Capitol Hill as "Israeli-occupied territory."
(St. Louis Post Dispatch, 10/20/90)

     In a 1977 column, Buchanan said that despite Hitler's anti-Semitic and genocidal tendencies, he was "an individual of great courage...Hitler's
success was not based on his extraordinary gifts alone. His genius was an intuitive sense of the mushiness, the character flaws, the weakness
masquerading as morality that was in the hearts of the statesmen who stood in his path." (The Guardian, 1/14/92)

     Writing of "group fantasies of martyrdom," Buchanan challenged the historical record that thousands of Jews were gassed to death by diesel
exhaust at Treblinka: "Diesel engines do not emit enough carbon monoxide  to kill anybody." (New Republic, 10/22/90) Buchanan's columns have run in
the Liberty Lobby's Spotlight, the German-American National PAC newsletter and other publications that claim Nazi death camps are a Zionist concoction.

     Buchanan called for closing the U.S. Justice Department's Office of Special Investigations, which prosecuted Nazi war criminals, because it was "running down 70-year-old camp guards." (New York Times, 4/21/87)

     Buchanan was vehement in pushing President Reagan -- despite protests-- to visit Germany's Bitburg cemetery, where Nazi SS troops were buried.
At a White House meeting, Buchanan reportedly reminded Jewish leaders that they were "Americans first" -- and repeatedly scrawled the phrase
"Succumbing to the pressure of the Jews" in his notebook.  Buchanan was credited with crafting Ronald Reagan's line that the SS troops buried at
Bitburg were "victims just as surely as the victims in the concentration camps." (New York Times, 5/16/85; New Republic, 1/22/96)

     After Cardinal O'Connor criticized anti-Semitism during the controversy over construction of a convent near Auschwitz, Buchanan wrote:
"If U.S. Jewry takes the clucking appeasement of the Catholic cardinalate as indicative of our submission, it is mistaken. When Cardinal O'Connor of New York seeks to soothe the always irate Elie Wiesel by reassuring him 'there are many Catholics who are anti-Semitic'...he speaks for himself. Be not afraid, Your Eminence; just step aside, there are bishops and priests
ready to assume the role of defender of the faith." (New Republic, 10/22/90)

You might have a point MichiganDemocrat. There are so many better reasons than immigration to call Pat Buchanan a racist.

Didn't No how nuts he is
Thank you Gary for pointing out some of those remarks of Buchanon's.  I knew he was a not a big fan of Israel, but did not know about these extreme comments he made in the past about the Confederacy and the Holocaust.

I'm just glad someone is calling for impeachment of the Bush Crime family.  (I got that term from Mike Malloy, on Air America, who just rocks.)

If you haven't heard Mike's show, you must do so.

Malloy is a cross between Randi Rhodes and Howard Dean on steroids.
