Republicans during GSA hearing: Ignore the law, attack the chairman

13 June 2007 at 8:47:35 PM

Not one republican today stood up for the RIGHT thing at the oversight committee meeting today. They pandered to the person (or regents they are called) who donates (not necessarily raises as the person testifying clarified) $250,000 to the republican party (not to mention the gsa contract for katrina and a job as the gsa admin, not a bad investment) instead of looking at the message they are sending. The message the republicans are sending is that loyalty trumps the law...forget what the law states as long as you take care of your own. I hope this puts another nail on the coffin of the republican party, their ethics are for shit and their morals...well they have none anymore. When you allow someone to use the government funded gsa buildings, employees, and time for one party then you have crossed the doesn't matter what party you belong to.

You'd think there would be a modicum of respect and decency for the person running the committee, but not from Mica, Issa, Burton et al. And since they were voted in, one has to assume that the people who voted them in approve of incivility and are like that themselves.

Not so at this hearing. The Republicans were vicious and demeaning, while the Democrats took the high road. I kept wanting Waxman to tell these guys to shut up, but he let them have their say-it made the Republicans look really bad.

Now, I'm not saying that all Democrats are perfect, but in the context of this hearing they weren't turning on all their fellow congressmen and women like dogs.
