Rep. Conyers Denied Entry From The People's House
This comment from, The Fixer:
They wouldn't let him in. Think about this. They refused to allow a Member of Congress into the White House to deliver a letter. It's time to explain to Bush and his henchmen that he does not hold the deed to the White House. We do.
(***GOI Comment: They not only denied a member of Congress entry into the people's house but they denied 550,000 Americans (who signed the petition) entry to the White House. One has to wonder what happened to the petition once it was taken. It was probably dropped into a metal waste paper basket and burned. If there is any doubt that our democracy has been compromised then this picture proves that indeed it has been.
Things are pretty basic right now. Bush lied, we've know he lied and we now have a paper trail, timeline and proof. We demand that he answer to those he works for, "us" the American people. If he has nothing to hide then he just needs to go under oath and answer a few questions.
How much do you want to bet that his administration is going to raise the terror alert again in the near future to create a distraction?
If you're not furious then you are not paying attention or burying your head in the sand and ignoring the obvious.
According to a New York Times/CBS News poll, only 42% approve of the the way Bush is handling his job. That means that nearly 60% of Americans disapprove!!!. These numbers are a significant decline from his approval rating of 51% right after his re-election in fall 2004.
On Iraq, only 37% approve of his handling of the war and only 42% believe that the war was worth it. Bush received only 39% support on other foreign policy issues and the economy.
There there is this from Slate:
Meanwhile, Congress garnered a mere 33 percent—its worst showing since 1997—with only 19 percent of folks believing that Congress has the same priorities for the country as they do.
All I can say about these numbers is that 2006 is going to bring in a big sweeping broom to Washington D.C. and I can not wait.
