The Republican Party sees nothing funny about Sen. John F. Kerry's crack that President Bush should be impeached.
If Democrats take back the House in 2006, there would be a "solid case" to bring articles of impeachment against Bush for "misleading" the country about prewar intelligence, the National Journal's Hotline quoted Kerry as saying.
Kerry spoke Wednesday night at a holiday party for those who worked on his losing 2004 presidential campaign. He gave a short speech at a Washington bar.
Hotline said several of the 100 Democrats who attended the party quoted Kerry as advocating President Bush's impeachment.
Kerry's communications director David Wade later said his boss was joking, but Republicans are not laughing.
"With his impeachment advocacy last night, John Kerry once again showed how out of touch he is with American people and how in step he is with the far left fringes of the Democrat party," said RNC Communications Director Brian Jones in a statement.
"For one of the leaders of the Democrat party to begin a push for presidential impeachment, in seriousness or jest, on the eve of the Iraq elections is both foolish and shortsighted."
Kerry reportedly is mulling another run for Democratic presidential nomination in 2008.
A Democratic party that has the gall to allow John Kerry to run for president again in 2008 is a party that should not be taken seriously. I mean, how desperate have the Dems become? Then again, Al Gore took his one shot, lost and gave up. Why can't John Kerry do the same?
Seriously. It's become that bad for John Kerry as he continues to make a buffoon out of himself as calling for the President's impeachment clearly displays. Thus, it'd be political suicide to allow a man positioning himself to be a Howard Dean clone to run for President in '08. If John Kerry runs for President again he'll not only lose, but he'll make an even bogger ass of himself by losing by an even bigger margin than he did in 2004.
Losing a presidential election twice may even 'cause Theresa to divorce him.
After all, the American public has caught up to Kerry's act and they've had enough of it. They know that he is a liar, they know that he's an elitist, they know that he'll say anything to win and they know that he is nothing but a buffer for the extreme Left. The latter becoming even more apparent when Kerry recently accused American soldiers of "terrorizing" Iraqi families.
With incendiary statements that revolve around nothing but pure and utter hatred for Republicans as well as conservatives, John Kerry and Howard Dean have positioned themselves as the two biggest threats to the Democratic party's future. A liberal will never again win the Presidential seat as the Leftist nuts version of what "liberal" means has become so contempt, their extremist views have no place in our party. So if there is any chance of a Democrat being President again, the Dems must separate themselves from arrogant pricks like Howard Dean and John Kerry.
