Bear Sighting on ThinkProgress

(snort!)

Think Progress » White House Reveals Bush Lied: Was Told In August Iran’s Nuclear Program ‘May Be Suspended’
My God. Will we get the truth on Bush’s latest round of lies?

Pat Buchanan said this morning on MSNBC that Biden should call Rice and Mike McConnell before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to ask them POINT BLANK — did they tell Bush about the NIE Report? No more bullshit Condi — give us a yes or no answer.

Buchanan said if Rice or McConnell didn’t tell Bush about the NIE Report, they should be fired on the spot. If they did tell Bush and he continued with his warmongering threats against Iran, well . . . Buchanan didn’t say, but we can fill in the blanks. It’s impeachment time.

By the way, it’s past time to demand the truth from Air-Head Perino. She tosses her hair, gives a slight smirk, and lies through he teeth to protect her buddy Bush. Enough already.

Seriously though, this guy is right - the completely flaccid and impotent Democrat congress has all the power it needs to call the administration to the carpet, yet doesn't. So much for the advantage going to the person on the high ground.

This lack of character and leadership by the Democrats makes my blood boil. They are truly unable to exercise the power they actually have for reasons that just escape me. What the hell is going on?

They are afraid to act just in case Bush is right, they too have doubts about the sincerity of Iran not too develop a nuclear bomb. They aslo know and see in the current mud slinging between the DEMS and REPS respectively how decisions and votes cast now will come back to haunt them years down the road in an important and close election.

In a nutshell, most of these guys are more interested in their future than the future of their country. Hillary is a prime example of a politician who employs extensive canvassing techniques and popularity polls before taking a "position". Absolutely disgusting...

Because, in politics, for every action, there is an opposite reaction. No person pursuing such matters will go unchallenged and their own political lives will be picked apart for any similar improprieties. In simple: They have their own skeletons they're trying to hide and they know they will come out if they push these issues. Those in leadership positions who refuse to take warranted action should be looked upon with suspicion, as well.

More evidence of gutlessness. Run on an anti-war platform and then win, but once in control of the money, do nothing to effectively influence the duration of our illegal occupation of Iraq: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/12/08/wa...hp&oref=slogin

Pathetic pandering puddles of puke. Jim

Here is another reason this Congress is fked up:
from the same author (yes Pat Buchanan)
Nancy Pelosi: Aipac girl

"
Pelosi & Co. thus aborted a bipartisan effort to ensure that if we do go to war again, we do it the constitutional way, and we do it together.
Nothing in the provision would have prevented Bush, as commander in chief, from responding to an Iranian attack or engaging in hot pursuit of an enemy found in Iraq. Nor would the provision have prevented Bush from threatening Iran. It would simply have required him to come to Congress – before launching all-out war.
Now Pelosi has, in effect, ceded Bush carte blanche to take out Iran’s nuclear facilities. It’s all up to him and Cheney.
For this the nation elected a Democratic Congress?
Why did Pelosi capitulate? Answer: She was “under pressure from some conservative members of her caucus, and from lobbyists associated with neoconservative groups that want war with Iran and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC),” writes Nichols."
