[Video] Impeachment spot to run in California


Rawstory — The National Impeachment Network is planning to run an advertisement on California television during the months of December and January 2009 which advocates for the impeachment of President George W. Bush.

Headed by Ralph Lopez, diarist at the left-leaning Daily Kos, the National Impeachment Network is supported by grassroots groups such as Code Pink, Veterans for Peace and Republicans for Impeachment.

From the network’s website:

“Ralph Lopez at the National Impeachment Network has created this ad for television, a version of which has already run in Vermont on Fox News, MSNBC, CNN Headlines, and other stations. We are going over the heads of congressmen and appealing directly to their constituents in order to generate pressure for impeachment. Impeachment can be accomplished in three days with single article like refusing to obey congressional subpoenas. In an up-or-down vote before the entire Congress, even Republicans who are not part of the rabid right will start hearing from their constituents to impeach. Bush has no friends left, and he shouldn’t. They can do it. And the future of democracy will be that much more secure, with his unprecedented law-breaking firmly punished.”

The ad features images of flag-draped caskets and grieving military families, along with George W. Bush addressing the crowd before an annual Correspondent’s Club dinner with now infamous jokes about not being able to find weapons of mass destruction. It also includes a clip of author and former Deputy District Attorney of Los Angeles County Vincent Bugliosi’s congressional testimony regarding the absence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

The ad encourages California citizens to contact their representatives in Washington to demand impeachment of the President.
