    It's tough when the chickens come home to roost. Maybe now we'll get some truth.

    WASHINGTON -- Massachusetts lawmakers are set to launch a blizzard of investigations in the new Congress, probing issues such as wartime contracting, post-Katrina housing assistance, and the Bush administration's relationship with Cuba and other countries in Latin America.

    In what could be closely watched proceedings, two members of the Massachusetts delegation -- representatives William D. Delahunt of Quincy and Martin T. Meehan of Lowell -- are planning joint committee hearings to examine the administration's Iraq war policies, particularly the reasons for the military's lagging efforts to train Iraqi troops. Delahunt is in line to become chairman of the House International Relations Committee's subcommittee on oversight and investigations, and Meehan will take over the same subcommittee on the House Armed Services Committee.

    Armed with the power to force sworn testimony for the first time after 12 years in the minority in Congress, members of the state's all-Democratic congressional delegation are positioned to play major roles in investigating policies and actions that cut across the federal government and the business community.

    What's to think about? Dems have learned nothing in the past ten years of being out of power, and WHY they were out of power. They're picking up where they left off and y'all will be wailing and gnashing your teetch when you get kicked out again for the same damned reason.

    Boy, them's some fightin words.

    I mean, "Armed", "power", "force", "positioned", "major", "investigating", "cut", and "actions". One would think the Dem's were preparing to go to WAR.

    What a bunch of pussies, carry on.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same.:lol:

    Really too asinine to even think about, but the first two words in this paragraph tells it all. I don't mean to cut down the citizens of Ma. because most of the people I have met that is from there are some of the greatest people I know. But their lawmakers has their heads in a hole somewhere and couldn't find or even know the truth if it slapped them in the face.

    Oh now that is rich. It's called "oversight"...a responsibility the Republican controlled Congress has shamefully abdicated since Chimpy McPresident took office.

    EXCUSE ME, you call the smell thats been coming from halls of Congress a caving in to the President?

    The dust hadn't settled BEFORE congress started snipping, squealing, and undermining ALL, that President Bush was doing.

    I do agree, that congress has been "shamefully lacking" in their responsibility to the American people, AND to their duty to support the President in a time of WAR.

    If the Congress hadn't been controlled by the Republicans, we would all be learning how to worship Allah today.:eusa_whistle:

    The liberal answer to everything. Let's start a committee to investigate the committee that investigates the committee that is trying to find out what veggie Bush eats on Wednesdays.

    I completely agree with and support abdicating perpetuating the bureacracy with mindless investigations to the tune of billions of dollars. Congresspersons are so damned busy sitting on this damned oversight committee or that oversight committee they can't do the damned job they were elected to do.

    Exactly which article of the Constitution authorizes Congressional oversight of the executive branch?

    The Constitution grants Congress two and only two checks on the Executive branch: The2/3 supermajority overturn of the veto and impeachment.

    Congress never declared war.

    As for "...learning how to worship Allah...", that is simply so much hysterical babble.
