Democrats Don't Do Oversight - Not Really

Democrats keep denying voters any real oversight at all. So why all the pretense of an investigating with no responsible results? Why are Democrats wasting time and taxpayer money on something that will result in no meaningful action of any kind?

AP news services has this bit of news out today that says that Karl Rove was cited for contempt by congress, but apparently, it is only a "recommendation" to hold Karl Rove in Contempt.

Voting along party lines, the House Judiciary Committee said that Rove had broke the law by failing to appear at a July 10 hearing on allegations of White House influence over the Justice Department, including whether Rove encouraged prosecutions against Democrats.

The committee decision is only a recommendation, and it was unclear whether Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., would allow a final vote. Rove has denied any involvement with Justice decisions, and the White House has said Congress has no authority to compel testimony from current and former advisers.

If its government criminal conduct cover-ups, obviously Nancy Pelosi firmly approves of criminal activity and the complete irrelevancy of the Democratically lead House Judiciary Committee. So let us all hope that Nancy Pelois is eventually held equally accountable for criminal acts that she allowed this administration to continue unabated with while prohibiting any real or meaningful oversight. Nancy Pelosi knew that Bush was wiretapping illegally and she knows that this administration is torturing people too, and yet, she continually chooses to do nothing about it. That, in itself is a criminal act equally as serious as anything this administration is doing.
