Bad Tomatoes - An Impeachable Offense

Article 2, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution states that the President "shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

For several years, liberals - including politicians, bloggers, and mainstream media - have been giving us numerous reasons for impeaching President Bush. Here are just a few of the "impeachable offenses" that I have actually heard or read of:

Warrantless wiretapping, Guantanamo bay, Abu Ghraib, secret prisons, lying about WMDs in Iraq, no-bid contracts in Iraq, suspension of Habeas Corpus, militarily targeting civilians and journalists, militarily targeting hospitals and ambulances, using illegal weapons, obstructing honest elections, exposing the identity of a covert CIA operative, failing to assist New Orleans residents after Hurricane Katrina, ignoring urgent warnings of an Al Qaeda attack prior 9-11, the bridge collapse in Minneapolis, and increasing air pollution causing global warming.

Last week, CNN’s Lou Dobbs gave us yet another reason to impeach the President: salmonella-tainted tomatoes. I'm not kidding. On “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” Dobbs had this to say:

For them to leave the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in this state, its
leadership in this sorry condition and to have no capacity apparently or will to
protect the American consumer – that is alone to me sufficient reason to impeach
a president who has made this agency possible and has ripped its guts out in its
ability to protect the American consumer.

. . . As for this administration, were a responsible president at the helm of
this country, I would wonder why he is not taking action, but then again, this
is of course his FDA and his legacy.

Dobbs is really on to something here. Let's impeach the President for the bad tomatoes. While we're at it, why don't we go ahead and impeach him for the Virginia Tech shooting, the Chinese earthquake, and the 17 Massachusetts teens who recently became pregnant after entering into a "pregnancy pact" with one another.

Let's not stop there; let's also impeach him for the 1871 Chicago Fire, the “dust bowl” drought of the 1930s, the 1972 murders at the Munich Olympics, the 1986 explosion of the space shuttle Challenger, the Exxon Valdez oil spill in 1989, the 1993 Waco Siege, and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

Come on, Lou Dobbs. Don't stop at bad tomatoes. I'm sure that, with a little work, you can think of many more reasons to impeach President Bush.

There's gotta be more!

You forgot the fires that burned Montana and California last year, and the flooding in Iowa, the Greensburg, Kansas tornado, and the ice melting under the polar bears. I'm sure there's more.

Since the Left doesn't believe in God, all the "acts of God" have to be President Bush's fault. And if Obama were to win the election, all the disasters and mistakes during his administration will, of course, be President Bush's fault, because he will have touched it last.

Great post.
