VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Dander Up?


Good For GWB!

 

Why the man doesn’t show more backbone EVERY DAY is a mystery!

ABC Breaking News:

President Bush invoked executive privilege Monday to deny requests by Congress for testimony from two former aides in connection with the firings of federal prosecutors.

I find it “Rather” interesting how such a non-issue as this is still an issue with the friggin’ mutants of the Leftinistra. Haven’t they seen their dwindling approval ratings recently? Morons.

UPDATE…7/9…1050 hours. CBS is kinda late on the ball here but here it IS anyway:
Bush Fires First Shot At Congress

In the first of several contentious battles on tap between Congress and the White House, President Bush has invoked executive privilege to deny testimony from two former high-level aides regarding their role in the firings of U.S. attorneys. More…

And there yas have it. The Legislative Branch will do its best to rewrite the Constitution.

In a letter to the heads of the House and Senate Judiciary panels, White House counsel Fred Fielding insisted that Mr. Bush was acting in good faith and refused lawmakers’ demand that the president explain the basis for invoking the privilege.

“You may be assured that the president’s assertion here comports with prior practices in similar contexts, and that it has been appropriately documented,” the letter said.

Retorted House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers:

“Contrary what the White House may believe, it is the Congress and the courts that will decide whether an invocation of executive privilege is valid, not the White House unilaterally,” the Michigan Democrat said in a statement.

The exchange Monday was the latest step in a slow-motion legal waltz between the White House and lawmakers toward eventual contempt-of-Congress citations. If neither side yields, the matter could land in federal court.
