Investigations Today: The Financial Mess And Fired Attorneys

Well, well, well, here’s an investigation that most Democrats, such as Barney Frank, will not want

Sens. Bryon Dorgan (D-N.D.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) are calling for a congressional investigation into how we got into the economic crisis.

“[The American people] want to know how we got into this ditch – the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression,” McCain said. “They have a right to know. So far, the answers have not been forthcoming.

Dorgan, the chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, and McCain, the ranking member of the Senate Commerce Committee, say the government has devoted nearly $9 trillion in bailouts to help stabilize an economy that has seen $8 trillion in stock market losses, 5 million lost jobs and millions of foreclosure filings.

But, they say, there have been “very few answers” about why this situation came about.

“I think if you asked average citizens of America today ‘Do you know why this happened and how it happened?’ I think most Americans would say that they really don’t understand what happened, and that contributes to their anger and frustration,” McCain said.

Considering that one of the root causes was the financial meltdowns of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, run by Democrats and propped up by poor Democrat policies, along with the Community Reinvestment Act, and Republicans tried to fix them, and were blocked, an investigation would be fun! But, probably will never happen, because it would make Dems look bad, and they have more idiotic things to investigate during basement hearings

Former top aides to President George W. Bush agreed Wednesday to testify before Congress under oath about the firings of U.S. attorneys, a controversy involving allegations of political interference that became a major issue in Bush’s second term.

“Mr. Rove, Ms. Miers, what happened?” “We fired attorneys that serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States. Big woop. Clinton fired them all. Now, be careful with that Tinker Toy gavel, OK?”

Just another manufactured outrage by the Democrats, which, too be honest, the Bush White House blew in replying too.
