On May 1, 1981, thousands of protesters marched in Washington to denounce President Reagan's economic and social policies. The event was billed as ''Days of Resistance to Roll Back Reaganism." (Sound familiar?) At the event, at least two speakers called for impeaching Reagan.
''Our purpose is to turn this country around,'' one said. ''Getting rid of Reagan is the first step.''
In early 1983, Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., said Reagan should be impeached "for incompetence." Later that year, he called for impeaching Reagan over his military action in Grenada.
Jesse Jackson wanted Reagan impeached in 1984 for mining Nicaragua's harbors. Texas Rep. Henry Gonzalez and six other Democrats introduced a resolution to impeach Reagan in 1987 over the Iran-Contra affair.
Gonzalez pushed to have President George H.W. Bush impeached in 1991 because of the Gulf War.
Reps. Dennis Kucinich and Robert Wexler introduced 35 articles of impeachment against President George W. Bush in 2004 that centered on the Iraq War, Hurricane Katrina, global warming and the 2004 elections.
Conyers filed a resolution in 2005 calling for Bush's impeachment, and was still publicly advocating it by 2007. And Kucinich kept pushing for impeachment into Bush's last months in office.
That's when they aren't twitching over assassination fantasies. Oh, and every Republican is a moron, incompetent, evil, and hateful. Every one, if you listened to these folk.
If they think they want impeachment, they should take a page from the Republicans, who actually succeeded in impeaching Clinton, although not removing him from office, unfortunately.
