Mother fucking Bush

bush.jpgHere’s the leed on a story from Yahoo News last night:

A defiant President Bush warned Democrats Tuesday to accept his offer to have top aides testify about the firings of federal prosecutors only privately and not under oath or risk a constitutional showdown from which he would not back down.

Are you F’ing kidding me? This administration has been caught with its hand in the kitty, so to speak, time and again. And Bush wants us to let these folks testify without being sworn in and, more importantly, without transcripts of that testimony, so that there’s absolutely no accountability or a pretense of truth to their statements? (Although, as Scotter Libby taught us, being sworn in certainly doesn’t mean this administration won’t lie anyway.)

Well at least the Dems are showing some balls on this one, saying they’ll start throwing subpoenas at folks as soon as possible because “[t]estimony should be on the record and under oath. That’s the formula for true accountability.”

Bush also said: “There is no indication that anybody did anything improper.” Which, I guess, verifies his statement years ago that he doesn’t read the newspapers.

Inauguration Day 2009 seriously cannot get here soon enough.

I'm all for them having to be sworn in too, but just speaking before the legislative committee should expose them to 18 USC 1001 liability. So they can't just go up and lie. Well, they CAN, but at least they could be held liable, in theory.
