    The White House on Friday all but refused to turn over the documents House Republicans have subpoenaed on bankrupt solar firm Solyndra, firing off a letter saying the request would put an "unreasonable burden on the president's ability to meet his constitutional duties."
    The feisty response appears to set up a clash between congressional investigators and the White House over the sprawling probe into Solyndra's finances and the administration's involvement in the decision to provide the struggling company a $528 million loan with taxpayer money.

    Solndra and the other solar power green crap that's failing is a major problem for this president. It's time to look into other ways to get cheap energy on the large scale. The E-cat cold fusion within the science area, I posted is a good idea, if we can get that working. Normal fusion, which we have gotten to work, but haven't stablized is even better, but needs more work. These two area's are far better then solar or wind could ever dream of being.

    It's also time to stop bankrolling Incompetents and Charlot-ens with tax dollars.

    And whom in the Congress will have the balls to write and present the Articles of Impeachment?

    Really? Isn't answering such things valid under LAW, and isn't upholding the LAW part of his 'Constitutional duties'?:eusa_whistle:

    I see a stonewall.

    nope. not hardly.

    as for subpoenas, certainly you believe this white house should be able to avail itself of the same protections as the last administration's, no?

    it's not like they outed a CIA agent, after all. now THAT is an impeachable offense.

    answering legitimate subpoenas is required. one can always move to quash a subpoena that overreaches or is illegal or improper.

    you see nothing different than EVERY president does. you would have defended the last one to the nth degree for the same thing. how 'bout you wait for the court to act before you all shrieking meemies lose your minds, mmmmkay?
