Skip to comments.Democrats signal oversight of Bush would increase. Probes by Congress may be in the cards
Posted on 05/21/2006 2:46:02 AM PDT by FairOpinion
Michigan Democrat Rep. John Conyers Jr.'s Web site features his call for investigations of the U.S. invasion of Iraq and President Bush's authorization of wiretapping without court warrants.
Conyers says either could justify Bush's impeachment or censure.
It is one of numerous demands by frustrated Democrats, out of power in Congress for several years, for investigations of the Bush administration.
But with the growing prospect that they could regain control of at least the House in the November elections, Democratic leaders are signaling that they intend to increase oversight of the White House if they win a majority and use their subpoena power to put the administration on the griddle.
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of California has indicated that high energy prices, faulty intelligence used to justify the Iraq war and the National Security Agency's surveillance program would be investigated.

You're in charge of that. Also, stop reading the Inquirer and Daily News.
Sad to say, he lacks the personal intellectual firepower to engage them -- so, he doesn't.
This has happened because President Bush in his stubbornness has become arrogant and couldn't care less what the American people desire. I have come to believe that Bush really isn't concerned about the problems he visits upon the Republican Party as he listens to only his own advice. Arrogance and pride will get ya' every time.
When pollsters ask the masses how they rate the POTUS, they should also ask "who do you know of that would have done a better job?"
You just belittle yourself when you make wild charges and start calling names. Small people do small things....
"Did it occur to you that President Bush was not too worried about the media in that O'Reilly interview, just before the elections in 2004, because he was fairly confident he was going to clobber Hanoi John Kerry, liberal media or not?"
He needs to be very worried about them and fight back. We have 140,000 troops in Iraq and the constant unanswered lies undermine and make every minute more dangerous for them. There are real world consequences from his weakness.
He's been reduced to an ex-fighter Pilot that can't even wear a flight jacket anymore!
As in a new TV channel named, "Free Republic"
"We have won every time since President Bush took power, won big in 2202 and bigger in 2004."
We have won every time since President Bush took power, won big in 2002 and bigger in 2004.
Shooting of American Women in Blue Burkas Timeline:
1. November 2006: Walk on water conservatives enable rats to take over congress. Nancy Pelosi becomes the Speaker of the House in January 2007.
2. February 2007: Rat controlled Congress cut funds to fight war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
3. March 2007: America starts to pull out troops from Iraq, Afghanistan and Middle East due to lack of funding.
4. April/May 2007: As American troops leave Iraq and Afghanistan, the Islamofascists begin the slaughter of millions of innocents as per us leaving Nam history.
5. May/June 2007: Rats in control of the house, start impeachment proceedings against GW with help of walk on water conservatives.
6. Early Summer 2007: Leaky Leahy and Ted Kennedy disband NSA and all military intel operations and replace them with Mary McTraitor and her web of rats. She is made the new director of the CIA as General Hayden is found guilty of treason for daring to spy on al Qaeda.
Pelosis New CIA immediately closes down any conservative web site. Jim and John Robinson are arrested for treason, and the names and email addresses of all Freepers are seized by the New CIA. The new CIA raids the RNC office and Republican Offices in all states, counties and cities. The names and addresses of registered voters and in particular all donors are seized. Many are arrested at that time and sent to the new and enlarged Gitmo prisons staffed and managed by Castros people.
Ted and Patches Kennedy ram through the new Rat Controlled Congress, a bill outlawing the ownership of any gun. Pelosi, gleefully signs the bill and announces the hiring of thousands of Gays forced out the military as a new police force to enforce the new law. People have two weeks to turn their legal guns in or be shot for owning a gun.
The primary targets of this new bill were any Republican or Conservative blogger who owned a gun. They were hunted down exterminated over the summer with the exception of the few who fled to Mexico. Freepers and Conservative Bloggers, who owned guns, were hunted and killed, their homes burnt and their families were sent to re learning centers.
7. Summer of 2007: American Stock market tanks as rats pass enormous spending bills and repeal GW tax cuts. Gold bugs are elated as Gold passes $1,000 per ounce. $inators Finestein and Boxer take over control of all American Oil Companies and stop all drilling in America. All American refineries are shut down and only gasoline imported from Cuban refineries using Opecker and S America oil is allowed to be sold. Severe rationing is put in for anyone who is not a member of the Elite Rat Limo Power Players.
8. Late Summer early Fall: Congress passes new taxes limiting the income of any corporation to 4% per year. Senate hearings are held and indictments are served to any execs of any corporation which made over 4% profit since GW was sworn in as president in 2001. Millions of Americans lose their jobs unless they are mining for gold as the evil corporations cut their workers to stay in business.
9. Fall/Winter 2007: The worse depression since Hoover begins in earnest with the Dow below 4000, and of course it is GW's Fault.
10. January/February 2008: The evil GW is removed from office impeached by the rats and happy walk on water conservatives. VP Cheney goes to jail for being associated with Haliburton on charges brought about by Fitzmas. Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House becomes President.
11. February to May 2008: President Pelosi and the rat controlled congress to prevent future wars, disband the Army, Navy/Marine Corps and Air Force. The Coast Guard is kept, and any Republicans are forced out. Nancy puts her Girly Boys from San Francisco in charge of the Coast Guard. The first thing they do is have all guns removed from the Coastie ships and men, and all the Coastie ships and boats are painted with the Gay Rainbow.
12. Late May 2008: President Pelosi disbands the Border Guards and replaces them with Social Service Workers to sign up anyone at any border for free food, medical care, drivers licenses with no tests, a social security card and a lifetime DNC voting card.
13. Summer of 2008: Riots break out over America as Walk on Water Conservatives continue blame to GW for what happened. They find themselves as targets of many rioters who blame them. No one has guns or knives, so rocks and clubs are the weapons of the street.
14. The rest of Summer 2008: The Dow drops below 500 as increased taxes and the Enviralist Eco Terrorists dominate what is left of the business world. The only people with jobs are the rats in government and those rolls are increasing each day. The only stocks that are thriving are the Rat Fascist controlled companies which own what was left of the MSM. Required viewing of Rat TV and movies and required reading of the Fish wraps with pop quizzes with serious consequences for those who fail, send those stocks soaring. Interest rates make the Jimmy Carter years look like a good deal.
15. September 11, 2008: With no US military, no real Coast Guard and no real border patrol to be afraid of, Bin Laden has the born again al Qaeda Hero's take out Seattle, San Francisco, LA, Las Vegas, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Dallas, Miami, Atlanta, Boston and NYC. Washington DC is spared so President Pelosi can surrender the nation to Bin Laden before it is destroyed. Iran and North Korea supplied the bombs and China and Russia provided the transportation and how to knowledge.
16. September 12, 2008, President Pelosi unconditionally surrenders to Bin Laden. Immediately all American Flags over what is left of the nation are lowered for the last time and burnt.
17. September 13, 2008, Blue Burkas become mandatory dress code for every female in America. Any male not killed immediately, is taken away to some slave labor camp.
18. September 14, 2008, the new al Qaeda sport of shooting women in America in Blue Burkas in stadiums in what is left of America becomes the new national sport. First they are gang raped in Islamo style and then shot like the one below:
Enter Tony Snow for this very purpose?
You are right I am a conservative.
