“Elections have consequences.”
March 22, 2007
I for one am glad to see Congress finally taking an active role in its Constitutional duty to both enforce checks and balances as well as potential criminal activity. For the past 6 years, the country has turned a blind eye as the GOP in the House and Senate has rubber stamped everything Bush has done, said or asked for.
No longer, and it feels like a breath of fresh air.
Today’s exchange between Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK), Al Gore and Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is a perfect example of why Americans voted for change this past November. The reaction in the room speaks volumes as does Gore’s quiet resolve to state his side of the story despite the seething and loathing that Inhofe has for him. Go watch it.
