Note to Bush: This is how it works, Chimp Boy.
When he says that the congress must "accept his offer to have top aides testify about the firings of federal prosecutors only privately and not under oath" the correct answer to that is, "fuck off, asshole". Well, what Leahy said was, "Testimony should be on the record and under oath. That's the formula for true accountability".
Thank you, Senator.
It's about fucking time there was some checking going on over White House way.
Genius that he is, Bush muttered: "I'm sorry the situation has gotten to where it's got, but that's Washington, D.C., for you. You know there's a lot of politics in this town."
Wow, talk about insightful..
BTW, for those of you who are yelling about attacks "from the left" on the president (and I think there have been too few attacks) remember this from the news this week:
..the Senate on Tuesday voted 94-2 to strip Gonzales of his authority to fill U.S. attorney vacancies without Senate confirmation. Democrats contend the Justice Department and White House purged the eight federal prosecutors, some of whom were leading political corruption investigations, after a change in the USA Patriot Act gave Gonzales the new authority.
Take that, asshole.
