Picking through the Detritus….

There’s a lot of stuff going on….and much of it doesn’t add up to a hill of beans. But there are things that seem to be generally overlooked by the public at large.
Among the most disturbing developments, there is growing evidence that Congress is not going to find the gumption that it needs before it goes down as one of the least effective Congresses ever—despite what Nancy says.

My main complaint is against her considering Impeachment for the most impeachable president ever.

Her reasons do not resonate with me; nor should they with you.

Because it gives Bush a pass and allows him Congress’ blessing for violating the Constitution.

Do we need to repeat that?

What is about that message that Nancy and Mr. Reed do not understand?

Do they not realize that this is just another nail in the coffin of democracy?

What is wrong with this picture?

Now, they are investigating the failures of the Justice Department to follow the law and the Constitution.

Somewhere along the way, Gonzalez, the Attorney General (Ex.), did not understand that his loyalty is to the law not the president.

And while everyone in the White House serves at the pleasure of the president that does not mean that all are to cater to him over the law.

Today, two high level people in the Justice Department were identified as using extreme political bias to choose lawyers to serve in that department.

Attorney General Gonzalez claimed again that he didn’t know anything about it….as he had said in confused testimony again and again.

Clearly, Attorney General didn’t know much about anything—especially what his obligations were under the law.

Wouldn’t the president be embarrassed to allow this charade to continue.

Add to this the latest testimony re the FISA courts and the free pass he has received for getting the telecommunications to break the law.

We are on a downside spiral in virtually everything these days, but it is clear to any observer that what has suffered most is respect for the law.

When the whole country collapses from Inertia, will Bush claim Executive Privilege.

That would be a fitting dénouement for a government unable to govern and a White House oblivious of the law.
