It's Not A Sex Act, Stupid
I posted the following on AmericaBlog today. I thought it worth repeating here:
More than anything, if President Obama does not investigate the abuses of the Bush administration, which should be done by an independent special prosecutor, then whoever is president will be able to do whatever they want on the grounds that it is okay, because the president says it's okay.
Obama does not understand this???
The GOP harassed President Clinton to no end on everything from his infidelity, to baseless allegations that Clinton staffers trashed the White House when they left. EVERYTHING was investigated.
And Obama does not have the cojones to investigate the process that led us into war, costing thousands of lives and destroying our economy?
Torture, wiretapping, Katrina, billions unaccounted for in Iraq, war profiteering and the Justice Department scandal are many of the other areas that need addressing. What...we will learn anything from our mistakes if we avoid examining what transpired?
So, President Obama, you don't want this politicized? Agreed. Hire an independent special prosecutor and take the politics out of it.
But get the answers.
This is far more worthy of investigation than a blow job and a stained blue dress.
