WASHINGTON — The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee on Friday urged Attorney General Eric Holder to appoint a special counsel to examine potential abuses by former President George W. Bush's administration.
Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., said in a speech to the National Press Club that Holder "must appoint a special counsel to review the Bush administration abuses of power and misconduct. A criminal probe — he's got to do that."
In a way I hope he gets his wish.
A Holder review will be put on display while it falls in the lap of Obama. Then Obama's poll numbers will continue to fall because it will be viewed as a waste of time by the public.
And Obama knows it when in the article it is written:
President Barack Obama has expressed reluctance to conduct a probe into alleged Bush-era abuses and resisted an effort by congressional Democrats to establish a "truth commission," saying the nation should be "looking forward and not backwards."
"......Looking forward and not backwards."
Mr. President, heed your own advice when you talk about Mr. Gates and the past.
This is 2009 not 1960 in the deep south. Things have changed and Mr. Gates should know better than to bring up some trumped up racial comment.
Then on top of that you have Kwazy John Conyers talking down ObamaCare.
WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. John Conyers said today that the health care reforms being pushed by President Barack Obama are “in trouble” in Congress, and that the bills under debate would need major changes to pass into law.
Conyers, who backs a single-payer, universal health care system, said he would not back any health care reform that did not include a strong option for a government-run insurance plan – a key sticking point in the Senate.
“The health care bill is unfortunately in trouble,” Conyers told a luncheon at the National Press Club. “I don’t think it’s being done right…We’re not starting all over, but we should be. We should scrap this system.”
Same speaking engagement and you can see how the corrupt Conyers tries to extort support for his endeavor to probe Bush through some political arm twisting. All legal of course.
