re: "'SORRY' DOESN'T SEEM TO BE THE HARDEST WORD"
"Why wasn't a fuss made when Bush fired Donald Rumsfeld? He is every bit as much a political appointee as the U.S. attorneys are."
Sec. Rumsfeld resigned. One could argue that he did so at the president's behest or request, but a resignation isn't the same thing as a firing, not quite.
"Bush should say: "We did it, it was political, and there's nothing you can do about it." Then he should start holding hearings on Congress' obstruction of the war effort. Members of Congress should be asked to come before the administration's hearings and testify under oath about their commitment to victory. If they are not traitors, what do they have to hide? Surely they will be willing to state under oath that they are not undermining the war effort for partisan political gain."
"If the State of the Union is that we have a treasonous majority in Congress that is affirmatively undermining American national security, the president is constitutionally obliged to give Congress information to that effect."
There's some other Constitutional interpretations that only a politically-motivated attorney (but I repeat myself) could come up with.
Plus a recounting of Democratic scandals that bring to mind that classic line from the animated film "Madagascar." To wit:
"If you have any poo, fling it now!"
