GAO Won't Investigate Bush Carrier Flight

It's hard to imagine that our lawmakers spent even a moment on this non-issue. But I'm sure they'll just chalk this up to the omnipotent Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy™.

Comptroller General David Walker, head of the General Accounting Office, said Tuesday it would cost too much and take too long to do the study.

He also would have to look at similar actions by other presidents and possibly federal lawmakers "in order to do this kind of work in a professional, objective, nonpartisan, fair and balanced manner," Walker said.

"In my view, it does not pass a cost-benefit test," he said. [emphasis added]

Did it take the Comptroller General to state the obvious to make these supposedly educated lawmakers understand? Like, duh!

And to those who are so hell-bent on keeping the actions of the globe-trotting, showboating previous President out of this debate, well, again, I'm sorry that you missed the obvious. As I've said before, the previous President blew many more of our tax dollars on his personal trips and his family vacations. And let's not forget Ms. Hillary's use of AF1 for her carpetbagger campaign... what is that about the pot calling the kettle black?

"To me, it is an affront to the Americans killed or injured in Iraq for the president to exploit the trappings of war for the momentary spectacle of a speech," said the Senate's most senior member, Robert Byrd, D-W.Va.

Grand Wizard Byrd is full of wisdom these days. It's impossible to even have a discussion about morality when that discussion includes Mr. KKK himself. He is an affront to his fellow Americans who have dedicated their lives to fighting racism, only to have a big, fat bigot as the "Senate's most senior member".
