Wow, the whole house of cards really is falling down upon BushCo, isn't it? It's hard to keep track of all the scandals. On any other day, this would be a front and center story, but it's not registering a blip on the scales with all the other stories today.

Bush Warns Dems to Take Offer in Firings

Associated Press
Tuesday, March 20, 2007

WASHINGTON (AP) - 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.

Democrats' response to his proposal was swift and firm: They said they would start authorizing subpoenas as soon as Wednesday for the White House aides.

"Testimony should be on the record and under oath. That's the formula for true accountability," said Patrick Leahy, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Anthony says: "Uh! Helloooooooooooooooooo?"
