This post titled "A Dereliction of Duty",
is spot on. The hypocrisy of Michael Castle is brought into sharp focus when you consider Castle's reaction to the crimes of George Bush and his reaction to the "crimes" of Bill Clinton. "I feel strongly that the president did not speak the truth."
"This is all so overwhelming. There have been so many bombshells, you can barely turn your back."
Is Castle commenting on the scandal landslide currently afflicting the Bush Administration? Is he finally standing up to the radical wing of his party? Well, not exactly. Those quotes are from that bygone era of blue dresses, cigars, and articles of impeachment Â the first of which Mike Castle voted for, incidentally.
Meanwhile, our current administration is consolidating a dangerous amount of power into the executive branch via Bush's use of signing statements. These are measures added to laws after the fact that say Bush is free to interpret the law as he sees fit, meaning he can simply disobey it if he pleases. Bush has added these signing statements to over 750 laws.(snip)
Unsurprisingly, many of the same legislators who went into collective meltdown mode during the artificially generated Clinton scandals have been silent as church mice this time around.
To put it simply, Congress' unwillingness to perform their duties is starting to become dangerous. They have failed us, Mike Castle included.
The bottom line is Michael Castle thinks that George Bush should STILL
be the President. For that reason alone, he needs to be replaced.
