If Congress subpoenas Rove, and the President says no to the subpoena, what happens? Well, it turns out that the US Attorneys office would be contacted to initiate some sort of proceeding. Now perhaps we see why the President wanted to replace all the US Attorneys with political allies. I ask you, is this manipulation good for America?
If you have any doubt about whether or not the President has grabbed too much power, think of this. In the 2008 election it is very likely that all that power will fall into the hands of a Democratic President. Now think hard and long. Even if you like Bush you have to take a minute on this one. Do you want the President to be able to break the law, and have Congress not be able to do a thing about it, short of impeachment. No investigations, because they can't call executive branch witnesses. No depositions of the executive branch either.
Humm...., perhaps Bush has something here. Had Clinton had this power he could have told Congress to stuff it where the sun don't shine.... I take it all back. Give the President all he wants. The Democrats will use it well in January 2009.
