CHICAGO - Independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader (news - web sites) called Tuesday for President Bush (news - web sites) to be impeached for "deceiving the American people night after night after night" about U.S. involvement in Iraq (news - web sites).


"When you plunge our country into war on a platform of fabrications and deceptions, and you bring back thousands of American soldiers who are sick, injured or dead, and that war is unconstitutionally authorized to begin with, Mr. Bush's behavior qualifies for the high crimes and misdemeanor impeachment clause of the Constitution," the 2000 Green Party presidential nominee said to applause from about 200 students at Columbia College Chicago.


Nader said President Clinton (news - web sites) was impeached for "far less of an offense."


"Lying under oath is not a trivial offense, but it cannot compare with deceiving the American people night after night after night on national television, staging untruths and rejecting the advice of his advisers," he said.


Merrill Smith, a spokeswoman for Bush's re-election campaign, declined to comment.


Nader previously called for Bush's impeachment during an anti-war rally March 20 in the president's hometown of Crawford, Texas, to mark the first anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.


Nader, a longtime consumer advocate, was in Illinois to gather the 25,000 signatures he needs before June 21 to qualify for the state ballot. He failed Monday to qualify for Oregon's ballot, but said he would try again under another option there.


Many Democrats blame Nader for Democrat Al Gore (news - web sites)'s loss to Republican George W. Bush in 2000, and have urged him not to run this time. They cite the vote Nader captured in close contests in New Hampshire and Florida and argue that Gore would have won if either state had gone to the then-vice president.


But Nader says Gore is to blame for his misfortune, and he rejected the idea that he could draw support away from Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry (news - web sites), the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.


In Portland, Ore., on Monday, former Democratic presidential contender Howard Dean (news - web sites) warned that "a vote for Ralph Nader is the same as a vote for George Bush."


An audience member in Chicago was booed for suggesting something similar.


Nader responded: "What we have to tell the two parties in unmistakable terms is that this country does not belong to two parties."

If Nader really wouldn't want Bush to stay, he would give up. But, as -almost- always when it comes to politicians and their selfishness, he won't.



Edit: I wrote it wrong.

Nader's success in the polls is proof that the major parties aren't doing enough to represent insane maniacs.

Maybe Nader's success in the polls is proof that people are just not used anymore to have only two alternatives to choose from. Could be, lately I noticed that those color-tvs are actually more popular than the black and white ones.

Ralph Nader is a truly a man of his convictions. You may not agree with them but he stands by them.



Of course that's why he can't run as a democrat.

Is it possible that you could remove the extra lines from an article before you post it?

Thank you.

I see you went the "How win friends and influence people" route. All I asked, and very nicely at that, was for you to remove the double spaces between the paragraphs in the articles that you post. But I guess someone like you can't be bothered to think of someone other than yourself.

Thank you for summing up your personality in that two word answer.

actually max i didnt really understand your question- i was under the impression that there SHOULD be spaces between paragraphs? In all seriousness, that is how I have always posted? I didnt think space was that "big an issue"?? I will try be be more aware of the gaps between paragraphs...

He cant run as either because he is about half a step away from being a communist. He reminds me of what michael Douglas' character in the american president said at the end, "He isn't interested in solving your problems, but he wants to do two things, make you scared of them and tell you who to blame for them." Or something to that effect.
