The Democratic Government in Exile

Been watching the Span lately? If you have you may have noticed Democrats holding hearings on important issues. They keep saying, "we have to have hearings like this because the appropriate committees wont hold them".

What are Democrats doing? Exactly what we hired them to do. They are conducting oversight hearings because the Republicans wont.

They are fighting the only way they can to embarrass the Republicans into having real hearings.

If they wont do their jobs the DGE will do it without them.

Pentagon auditors have questioned more than $1 billion in costs by contracting giant Halliburton Co. for its work in Iraq, a number several times higher than previously disclosed, according to a report by congressional Democrats.

Democrats are eyeing several parliamentary maneuvers to prod Congress into investigating the so-called Downing Street memo and other recently disclosed documents that they contend shows that the Bush administration manipulated prewar intelligence to build support for the war in Iraq.

Republicans are not doing this, because they are guilty, and they know that they cannot pay their way out of this one. Also, if the meetings were to be held in public, the Democrats would get some media attention, and their actions would be noticed. The last thing that Republicans want is for their Democratic counterparts to outshine them.

The Democrats need to investigate Cheney's energy taskforce. Remember that one guys?
