original story

A US grand jury in Guam opened an investigation of controversial lobbyist Jack Abramoff more than two years ago, but President Bush removed the supervising federal prosecutor, and the probe ended soon after.

In Guam, a US territory in the Pacific, investigators were looking into Abramoff's secret arrangement with Superior Court officials to lobby against a court reform bill then pending in Congress. The legislation, since approved, gave the Guam Supreme Court authority over the Superior Court.

US Attorney Frederick A. Black was demoted by non other than President Bush.

Today in a letter to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees, Reps. George Miller (D-CA) and Nick Rahall (D-WV) urge Congress to investigate "the potential political manipulation by Jack Abramoff and his allies in Congress and the Administration" in the Black case.

Now I ask you, what else is needed to show that our country has been run by a President, his Administration and a Republican House and Senate that have done some nasty deeds, that may or may not be criminal.

It's just a shame that the conservative blogs are now throwing up former President's Carter and Clinton and what they did in the past.

What we have here are conservatives saying just what the talking heads put out there as talking points and as usual, they pick up on it and run.

What we have here is a failure of leadership... leadership that's suppose to run this country for the good of the people.

What we have here, is a pattern of behavior, where this President and his Administration have done some really nasty things, maybe not criminal but you know what they say... things that are done in the dark, will come out in the light and the light is shining all over this Republican party.

This is why so many of us no longer belong to parties. There's plenty of spin of the "the other side is as bad" variety. Notwithstanding that it's a foolish argument, it's not going to work well for Republicans to point their grasping little fingers at Democrats when most of us are neither.

LETS TALK said...

Say it again Doug, say it again.

Most Republicans and Democrats, just dont have a clue.

Most Americans, be they Republican or Democrat, just hang on to a party or people within that party, as if they were their God.

We should have come to the conclusion by now, that no faith should ever be put in a man or a party.

We should look for Americans who can honestly do for this country, what is best for all of it's people.
