Thousands of people have died because President George W. Bush either a) lied about the reasons for going to war or b) acted so incompetently as to be criminally negligent or c) both. But that’s not why rightwing idealogue Pat Buchanan believes Mr. Bush should be impeached:
Buchanan [has] quietly suggested House Republicans mull impeaching President Bush … for what he sees as Bush’s “criminal” failure to stem the tide of illegal immigrants…
“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.”
“Some courageous Republican, to get the attention of this White House, should drop into the hopper a bill of impeachment,” he added, “charging Bush with a conscious refusal to uphold his oath and defend the states of the Union against ‘invasion.'”
On the face of it, there’s a much better case for going after Bush over the lies and/or criminal negligence, but if the Gops want to go after the President on immigration, they’re more than welcome to.
