The investigation into Foleygate is apparently over and apparently a report is ready. It was clearly withheld from the public so as not to hurt the GOP's chances in the elections. Although I don't approve of this, it was politics as usual and I can deal with it in light of the election results. The election is now over. This report and any evidence gathered should be made available to the public.

Specifically, we have a right to know if the Speaker of the House or anyone in the Majority leadership tried to cover this up for politic's sake. I have just emailed my representative to push for the release of the report. I urge you all to do the same. We can force this out soon if we really push hard

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

     ....We The People, or getting the injustices exposed of the previous congress.  I am not sure what the best answer is.  

    On the one hand, I want everyone to know what SCUM and Criminals these people are (were wow how good that feels), but at the same time, I also want the Dems to focus on straightening the course for the future.  Which is more important for the long term health of the country, I think the later.

      Can't walk and chew gum at the same time?

      These comments are starting to feel like somebody is doing some blog-o-triage to protect the cabal. This is not about revenge as you accuse. It's about accountability. It's a simple concept: Accountability sends a message that crime in our government will not be tolerated. Protection from accountability sends an engraved invitation to the next guy.

      Why do we keep repeating this mistake?

      (Wow. Looks like you just joined us on October 16, 2006. Glad you could be here for the election and these after-action discussions. You're not James Baker, are you?)

      Thank You Howard Dean!! Boo Rah!!!!

        I too would be very interested in prosecution of the crimes that were committed by this administration.  I believe that they are criminals who are currently running our country.  My concern, and maybe it was not stated as well as it should have been, was that the country may not have the political will or stomach for this to happen.

        People who are not as bright as you, or not as well tuned into the political arena as you, may want to continue to believe that our system and current government has and continues to be some type of moral beacon.  I do not believe this, but those who do continue to vote for these criminals must at least not understand the extent of their crimes.  With all of the evidence out there now, if these people do not understand it exists, or don’t believe that it exists in the current administration, how and what will convince them?  I fear that they will simply write off any prosecution as simple political infighting that is typical Washington politics as usual.

        nehark--- I was particularly taken back by your other more satirical comments directed at me personally.   And this is one reason for this reply to your comment.  Your reproach to my concern does not do justice toward our cause.  In fact your tact is much like the neo cons....“follow our line blindly, and don’t ask questions, or we will smear you”.   So first let me answer your specific questions: 1.) No I am not James Baker, and 2) yes, I am new to dkos ( I have read it since about March) , but I go back to August of this year before I got a screen name and began to make comments.  

        Did you want me to simply follow along without thinking about or stating my concerns?  Is this site only for those who believe as you do?   Maybe I am not as smart as you, but is this the best path for our cause? Does your reproach discourage people who are in fact motivated to do good work for our cause.   I think Kos himself said it best in his Memo to Democrats, nobody accomplished the change to Dem Congress by themselves and with one approach.  No single position in the party should take singlehanded credit.  I think that we have to have a big tent to continue to win.

        I have contributed so much this fall to Blue causes that it hurts. I would have much rather bought a new table saw for myself (I’ve wanted a new one since last year), and a new cook-top for my wife both of which could have been financed with only part of my contributions.  Or I would have rather gone on vacation to Mexico this year.   I would have much rather watched football during the time I used working for congressional candidates or calling dems to encourage them to vote for Move-on, but I didn’t get any of that done.  Instead, I am getting my beloved country back --somewhat.  I still wish that I had done more and included more people in my discussions.  I wish that I could understood and listened to their concerns and brought them along toward an even greater victory for our democracy.
