Bush Reacts to House Vote to Impeach Cheney
Bush opposed to impeaching Cheney â€œYou and IÂ areÂ a civilized nation. We shouldnâ€™tÂ throw peaches at anyone.
President George W. Bush today commented on the impending House vote to impeach Cheney, brought to the floor by Dennis Kucinich.Â A Washington Post reporter asked President Bush â€œMr. President, what do you think about Kucinich bringing to the floor House Resolution 333, the impeachment of your Vice President Dick Cheney for High Crimes and Misdemeanors?â€
Bush responded to the reporter, â€œI have been shocked and disappointed that there is even a discussion about such a thing in these 52 great states of America- I mean 50 states. 52 cards in a deck, right? And 50 states. Plus the joker of course. Sometimes 2 jokers. But your question wasnâ€™t about 2 jokers. It was about what me, the President of the U.S., think about impeaching my V.P., Cheney. Let me simply say this.Â He should NOT be impeached. We are a civilized nation. We shouldnâ€™t throw peaches at anyone! Not only is that torture and inhumane, it would cause a peach shortage, which could lead to increases in beach prices- peach prices- Â for the American people, something of which our administration will not stand for sitting down.â€
