That Congressional oversight Mrs. Pelosi alludes to, which she says takes place again and again, is under the Chairmanship of my own Congressman, Henry Waxman - who has produced NO measurable results from any of his many hearings - except perhaps indictments against athletes for abusing steroids.
Indeed, even after the emotional testimony in one hearing of Jessica Lynch regarding the military's dramatization of her rescue from an Iraqi hospital, and Mary and Kevin Tillman's testimony regarding the military coverup of the friendly fire murder of Mary's son and Kevin's brother, Pat Tillman, nothing has come to pass. Mary Tillman had to resort to writing her own book on the events of the death of her son because Congress just performed for Cspan's cameras.
Both Waxman's "Oversight" Committee and John Conyers' Judiciary Committee have produced NO "actionable" results. The only real actions that take place in Congress are those of the ever present pro-peace/pro-Constitution members of CODEPINK, who constantly risk their freedoms to challenge the criminality of the Administration and the ineptitude of Congress. Regardless of how many high profile hearings Congressman Waxman conducts, he produces NO results. The real criminals - those who orchestrate wars, default banks, drive up oil prices, instigate mortgage crises, coverup environmental studies, and more, are allowed to continue on.
Henry Waxman does NOT have my vote this November. I do not support his charades. In that same spirit of truth and justice, San Franciscans should NOT support Mrs. Pelosi. She has secured her "BUT" for her consituents, just as she secured it for her family. If San Franciscans reelect Pelosi in 2008, they will forever be doomed to hear:
"BUT" how could you vote for Pelosi when she wouldn't uphold the Constitution?
"BUT" how could you vote for Pelosi when she wouldn't impeach George Bush?
"BUT" how could you reelect Pelosi when she ignored the will of the people?
... and on... and on... and on...
"BUT" really, San Franciscans, after seeing this video and reading Pelosi's words, in all good conscience, how can you reelect her?
