The first question was meant to say "WILL HE FACE THE SCRUTINY?"

Blair, who spoke for about two hours, is only the second British prime minister to appear in public before a judicial inquiry. Conservative premier John Major appeared at a 1994 inquiry into whether the government violated its own policy on weapons sales to Iraq under his predecessor, Margaret Thatcher.

Oh gee! Do you think we will see the leader of our "free" country standing up and facing this kind of scrutiny any time soon??......


I DON"T THINK SO!

He will face the music, meaning he will face scrutiny.

Sorry, I am confusing at times...... I am bad at this poll thing.....

Bush? The king of avoiders of press conferences and, in fact, ANY occasion during which he might have to provide an unscripted answer to a question, subject himself to public scrutiny?

I'm shocked to hear such coarse language from my better half...

These guys, Bush and his wrecking crew, will not answer to anyone for their crimes until November next year, when they get sent home to contemplate their place as a mere footnote in history. I think they should put an asterisk next to Bush's name in the history books, to indicate that he was appointed, rather than elected. Kinda like they do for athletic teams when there is a strike shortened season.

They think they are doing God's will, as Shrub heard it, so they will never concede that they are doing anything wrong or immoral. If one brick were removed, their entire wall of faith in Shrub's divine calling would fall.

I am confused as well.

I don't believe he has the balls. I believe he *should* face scrutiny but I doubt he will.

Not all those who wander are lost

Hope you all wrilte your congressperson to tell them to support H.R. 2625. It calls for an independant investigation committee like the one forned for 9/11/01.

This is the 3rd or 4th (?) attempt by our pols to get something going!!! Let's support their efforts!!

Here is more info. Summary of H.R. 2625:
Statement of U.S. Representative Jan Schakowsky

I'm a cynic these days, so I doubt he'll have the balls to testify. Especially if you look at Cheney's record of answering inquiries.

I'm an optimist this morning and I voted that he will face the music, but only if we can get these idiots out of office.
I would write my congressman, but they are the biggest supporters of Bush out there and they keep putting me on pro-life mailing lists! JERKS! I feel there's no point at all in writing them, I get the feeling that they just trash those requests and pretend they never saw them. there goes the optimism- I knew it wouldn't last.

I understand, Marcy74.....

But, maybe you would gain a little sastifaction in telling them, again and again, that you do not agree with them? I do. A very little, but some nonetheless.
