Senate democrats try and show some muscle…approve subpoenas…Dobbs calls people buffoons

Echoing the action taken by House democrats, CNN is reporting:

“A Senate committee on Thursday authorized subpoenas for White House political adviser Karl Rove and others to testify under oath about the firings of U.S. attorneys.”

My question is, will they actually issue the subpoenas? From the same article:

The Senate committee vote echoes Wednesday’s House Judiciary subcommittee vote to authorize subpoenas. The vote does not mean that subpoenas will be issued, only that they could be if the four White House officials Democrats want to question do not voluntarily testify under oath.” (bold mine)

“I’m not going to accept testimony that’s not under oath behind closed doors when nobody in the public knows what was said,” said Leahy. “It just will not happen.”

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see how serious he is.

As for reaction to the whole ‘political showdown’, Lou Dobbs weighs in with:

Is there not one decent, honest man or woman in either the House of Representatives or the Senate, in either party’s leadership, who possesses the courage and the honesty to say, “Enough. The people who elected us deserve better”? So far the answer is no. Is there really any wonder that public opinion polls demonstrate that the president and this Congress share equally low approval ratings in poll after poll?
