After this little stunt

by John Boehner today where the GOP walked off the House floor, Steney Hoyer tore Boehner, the GOP and David Dreier apart for their fear mongering in response. Video of Hoyer below.

And prior to the temper tantrum and dust up by the GOP, Robert Wexler had this to say about following the rule of law.

Did the "main stream" media cover Hoyer's remarks today? Or Wexler's. Did they bother to highlight the fact that Miers and Bolton were in contempt of Congress in order to cover up the politicization  of the DOJ? Of course not. They were too busy chasing the GOP House members out on to the steps outside to continue their tirade. Bravo!

I just wanted to highlight Hoyer's and Wexler's remarks today for anyone that missed them. I think we need to hear more of the Democrats speaking out the way he did on this issue when they do get some face time on the television.

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.
