    The publicity of Bush refusing to follow the law could cause a backlash on him for more oversight, not less.

    I truly believe Bush refusing the Subpeonas would work for us not against us in the long run. People a fed up with his bullshit.

      The MSM is shilling for Bush and the GOP and Dems should just ignore them and be as aggressive as they need to be. The public wants it and will not be upset--so long as there's none of the sort of blatant partisan politicization that these MSM douchebags dishonestly accuse Dems of engaging in, and which I believe Dems are too smart, careful, responsible and experienced to engage in or even appear to be engaging in.

      This is a setup job, trying to set Dems up to appear like whiney malcontents who are overreading the election and pursuing a partisan witch hunt coordinated by the DSCC, DCCC and DNC in order to win big in '08, when in fact they are simply catching up with 6 years of non-oversight and which is part of why they were put in control of congress in the first place! This is like accusing a cop of bucking for a raise by going after known criminals too aggressively, when it's his JOB--and will DESERVE a raise if he succeeds.

      And I agree that the public will side with congress. It knows Bush has been up to no good and that his poor performance is due to more than just incompetence and is likely criminal too. And it's seen enough episodes of Law and Order and NYPD Blue to realize what you do with suspected criminals. (Although, personally, I think they all deserve the "24" treatment at this point--if only Jack Bauer were a Democrat!)
