Arlen Specter Just Gave Gonzales Room To Lie

@ 09:57 AM (104 months, 4 days ago)
Looks like Republican Arlen Specter, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, just gave Attorney General Alberto Gonzales wiggle room to lie his way through the hearings on the domestic spy program.
Specter refused to swear in Gonzales.  He wouldn't make Gonzales raise his right hand to swear to tell the truth and nothing but the truth.
Why don't the Republicans want to swear in Gonzales?  According to Specter's own account, Gonzales indicated he had no problems with being sworn in for the hearings, but Specter refused to do it.
Perhaps it's because they already know that Gonzales will lie and perjure his way through the hearings, and subsequently don't want Gonzales to be accused of lying under oath.   Lying while not under oath is o.k. though, according to the Rethugs.
Not even an hour into the spy hearings, and it's already clear the Republicans intend for these hearings to be nothing more than a dog and pony show.
Shame on them for making a mockery out of our democracy, and their responsibility for Congressional oversight.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he\'s tryiong none the less.

  56. Definitely consider that that you said. Your favorite
    justification seemed to be on the internet the simplest factor to consider of.

    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst folks consider concerns that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing
    with no need side-effects , other people can take a signal.

    Will probably be again to get more. Thanks
