Noblesse Obliged


by pessimist

I haven't got a lot of time to follow up on this until later today, but I wanted to get it out for discussion.

If Senator Arlen Spector claims "They want to do just as they please, for as long as they can get away with it," and "I think what is going on now without congressional intervention or judicial intervention is just plain wrong," how far do the Democrats think they are going to get with Bush Violated Constitution?

A letter to Bush, signed by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Henry Waxman of California and released Thursday, is the latest challenge to a bill that was passed in slightly different forms by the House and Senate before it was sent to Bush. Recognizing the problem, the Senate passed a resolution hours after Bush signed the bill confirming that the measure transmitted to the president was "deemed the true enrollment reflecting the intention of the Congress." The White House considers the matter settled.

Others do not. A liberal watchdog group, Public Citizen, filed a lawsuit Tuesday asking a federal court to throw the budget bill out. A Republican activist also has sued in federal court in Alabama.

So here's my question - is there enough outrage from Republicans so that this might build into the issue which sinks Bu$hCo? Or, is this yet another chapter in the continuing saga of the fruitless Demcratic Party pursuit of the ultimate Bu$hCo "So what?"

You have the floor.
