HE'S NOT THE DECIDER FOR THE UNITED STATES SENATE

"What we're told we can get is nothing, nothing, nothing," said Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., the Judiciary chairman. "I know he's the decider for the White House _ he's not the decider for the United States Senate."

So be it... the fight has begun, between the executive and legislative branches. Even though we haven't heard from Karl Rove, the White House has stated that he and his deputies can talk to lawmakers in private as the best deal Democrats are going to get.


Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, vowed he would not step aside and promised to cooperate with Congress in the inquiry. He also stated, "I'm not going to resign, no U.S. Attorney was fired for improper reasons."

As Talks go on behind the scenes, the White House and majority Democrats engaged in strategic posturing before the cameras. King George and his Court stands firm, not knowing that the new Sheriff (Democrat), in town is standing firm, just willing to let this King know, that when all the dust settles, not all the Kings Court including his Neocon friends, will be able to put King George back together again.

Even the comedians are getting in on the fun. Watch a clip of the Daily Show for laughs.

Bush's press conference was meant to paint the Democrats as partisan hacks (somewhat true) and the attorney firings as no big deal (not true). He kept suggesting that he was the one being reasonable (not true) and that what he was doing for Congress was unprecedented (not true). The bottom line is that the people deserve to know if the administration was attempting to subvert justice. It is a big deal.

I wonder why Bush and his Administration, just cant let those who has to testify... go up to the Hill and just tell the truth.

Are they hiding something?

If one of us was subpoenaed, we wouldn't have any choice. We wouldn't have the option of just giving an informal off-the-record interview instead of testifying under oath. Why should it be any different for Bush's aides? They aren't above the law.

Who Hijacked Our Country

Hear, Hear tom, you are so right.
When there's nothing secret that will be of question.
Just what is it, that they are afraid of?
You've said a mouth full, "They aren't above the law."
How true are said words!

Contempt of Congress charges soon, I think. Then the interesting question is going to be whether or not DoJ will actually pursue the charges.

LETS TALK said...

I would think so... the three branches of our Government.
I just hope will dont have another 2000 decision.

What a great clip. You know, Stewart, Maher, Colbert and Olbermann are doing a great job for the Democrats (and the country).

You are so right jm, when it comes to getting the word out about what this Administration is doing, the comedians are really coming through with the truth.
