Bush To Dems: Opposition Wastes Time

President Accuses Congress Of Delaying "The People's Business" With Investigations, Iraq Resolutions


WASHINGTON, D.C., March 24, 2007

(CBS/AP) President George W. Bush accused the Democratic-led Congress of wasting taxpayers' time picking fights with the White House instead of resolving disputes over money for U.S. troops and the firings of the U.S. attorneys.

In his weekly radio address Saturday, Bush called on Democratic leaders in Congress to move beyond political discord and take bipartisan action on both issues that have driven a wedge between the Bush administration and Capitol Hill.

He urged them to accept his offer to allow lawmakers to interview his advisers about the dismissal of eight federal prosecutors — but not under oath — and provide documents detailing communications they had about the firings with outside parties.

Democrats, armed with subpoenas for Bush's top political adviser Karl Rove and other top aides, are pressing the White House to allow the advisers to answer questions under oath about the firing of eight federal prosecutors. Bush says the Democrats are simply playing politics, trying to create a media spectacle.

Yeah, Dumbya wants all of these investigations about the attorney firings to end because he is probably gonna be in a heap of trouble!

And, let him be "The Decider" about Iraq! It doesn't matter what the people of this country want...we're just paying for this war and American families are suffering the loss of their loved ones!

So much money wasted on an immoral war!

So many lives lost!

Will the troops come home before the Bush administration ends?

When the troops leave, what happens in Iran?

The next president, whoever he (or she) is, has to talk with the different factions in Iraq and, if needs be, with the Syrians and Iraqis.

Britain and the US can't sort out the situation on their own.

I've just been watching a video of John Edwards making his "realizing the dream" address.

"I voted for this war, and I was wrong!"

We were lied to by our respective leaders, and some of us, including myself, were foolish enough to believe them.

Yes, Edwards is correct.. and some of those who voted for the attack on Iraq are sorry that they did but they were lied to!

Since when the fuck did Bush care about the "people's" business? Ridiculous economic policy, tax cuts, a war that makes no fucking sense at all, firing attys who try to do their jobs, what a fucking douche that guy is.
Can you imagine our Founding Fathers telling people not to resist? When that happened in the late 1700s, the Federalists died as a political force. Opposition is part of this country's tradition and Bush is douche for that line.
