Bush Says Congress Is Wasting Time

More bullying today came from an executive branch that has too much power:

WASHINGTON, Oct. 30 — President Bush lashed out at Congress today, the third time he has done so in two weeks, this time saying the House had wasted time on “a constant string of investigations” and the Senate had similarly wasted its efforts by trying to rein in the Iraq war. Its failure to send a single annual appropriations bill to his desk, he said, amounted to “the worst record for a Congress in 20 years.” Full Story. . .

Maybe if there wasn’t so much corruption that needed to be investigated they could accomplish more. However, the whole idea of a “checks and balances” system is to limit the amount of junk that gets pushed through congress and written into law. “Wasting time” on investigations is not wasted time in my opinion, unless of course the investigations are meaningless.

House speaker Nancy Pelosi responded to the president, “The president calls Congressional oversight that has uncovered tens of billions of dollars in waste, fraud and abuse in Iraq a ‘waste of time.’ We call billions spent in no-bid contracts to Halliburton a waste of money.”
