Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee asserted on Wednesday that the GOP vote to sue President Obama was just a disguised attempt to impeach him. And the Democrats never tried to impeach Bush.
I ask my colleagues to oppose this resolution for it is in fact a veiled attempt at impeachment and it undermines the law that allows a president to do his job. A historical fact: President Bush pushed this nation into a war that had little to do with apprehending terrorists. We did not seek an impeachment of President Bush, because as an executive, he had his authority. President Obama has the authority.
Except that the Democrats did try and impeach Bush in 2008, H.RES 1258. And Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee was a co-sponsor of said bill.
