Why are you not outraged?

On May 25, 2006, President Bush ordered the sealing of records seized from the Capitol Hill office of Representative William Jefferson. Bush did this he says to quell the confrontation between the Justice Department and the House.


A sitting President ordering a halt to the investigation of corruption?

He is worried about the constitutional challenge. To quote the President, I say "bring it on". Why not challenge the Constitution? The Constitution is pretty solid, it can withstand an occasional challenge.

Bush hit a new low with me. I mean it isn't enough that he's selling American citizenship out to Mexico, forcing a ban on gay marriage down our throats, but now he's directly interfering with the investigation of corruption and bribery in the federal government.

This is a complete travesty of justice? Why aren't you folks more outraged?

  1. Probably because we've become numb. This administration has been a series of outrages and after a while I think many folks just hunker down thinking that they'll just ride the storm out and hope for better weather after 08.

    One thing that I've found interesting and revealing about this particular issue is how both Dems and GOPers in Congress have come together over this issue. They're perfectly content to demagogue each other's positions but none of them want the gravy train derailed.

    I say we vote them all out and start over.
