Joe Biden: Running On Empty, Promises To Impeach Bush

Speaking before a political forum in New Hampshire, Presidential Candidate Senator Joe Biden told the small audience that he would move to have President Bush impeached if his administration "bombed" Iran without first getting permission from Congress.
"The president has no authority to unilaterally attack Iran, and if he does, as Foreign Relations Committee chairman, I will move to impeach," said Biden, whose words were followed by a raucous applause from the local audience.

Biden said he is in the process of meeting with constitutional law experts to prepare a legal memorandum saying as much and intends to send it to the president. [1]
Meanwhile in Germany:
BERLIN: An Iranian businessman suspected of exporting to Iran material that could be used in military nuclear projects has been arrested in Germany, the weekly Der Spiegel reported.

Police picked up the man identified as Mohsen V, 48, on Tuesday in Frankfurt on an arrest warrant issued by Germany's highest federal court, the magazine said in its Monday edition.

The magazine said the man "illegally delivered" to Iran "American pumps and special Russian cameras" used in nuclear research.

It also said that he had been negotiating "for some time now" with a manufacturer in the south-central German city of Mannheim to deliver certain measuring instruments used in nuclear work.

The suspect's business partners were also arrested, Der Spiegel said. [2]
Biden went on to make more remarks about the Bush-Iran situation, this time referring to Vice President Cheney.
"If you're going to impeach George Bush, you better impeach (Vice President Dick) Cheney first," said Biden, again drawing applause.

Biden said the best deterrent to prevent pre-emptive military action in Iran is to make it clear, even if it is at the end of his final term, action will be taken against Bush to ensure "his legacy will be marred for all time." [1]
Biden could had found other issues to pound the President with but instead chose to flex his Senatorial muscles prancing about promising impeachment. Biden would impeach the President if Bush bombed Iran. No warning to Iran. Just a threat to our President. A threat to tie the President hands over a country that has promised to destroy Israel. What part of "destroy" or demolish" does Biden not understand? Iran most certainly understood Biden's message.

Biden, in his quest to get elected undermined the President by effectly giving Iran the crowbar to pry the lid off Pandora's Box.

Pandering for votes, promising to impeach Bush. Makes one wish Biden would go back to plagiarizing.
