Political Theater

President Bush recently described attempts by congress to fulfill its constitutional duty to act as a check and balance of the executive branch as “pure political theater.” Let’s take a quick walk down memory lane with the president now to see exactly what “pure political theater” really looks like.

“We don’t want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud.”

An Act for the relief of the parents of Theresa Marie Schiavo.

“Marriage cannot be severed from its cultural, religious and natural roots without weakening the good influence of society.”

President Bush’s Jan. 14 announcement of a new NASA initiative for sending humans to Mars…

“Mission Accomplished”

The Swift Boat Veterans for Truth

Bush vetoes embryonic stem-cell bill.

Ah yes, that’s what it looks like.

So, when congress tries to investigate the Whitehouse’s naked attempts to politicize the Justice Department, that’s not theater; that’s justice long overdue.
