    GOP likely to urge Obama officials not to shred documents

    Fresh from a stinging midterm election defeat, House Democrats must quickly face another embarrassing spectacle: public trials for two of their most prominent members.

    Reps. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) and Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), two senior House veterans, have opted to fight the separate ethics charges in public ethics trials set to take place later this month and extend into the first week of December.

    Drawing criticism from Republicans, House ethics chairwoman Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) last month announced the trials would occur after the elections. Rangel’s will commence Nov. 15 and the Waters trial will start Nov. 29.

    After electoral drubbing, Democrats must now deal with ethics trials - TheHill.com
    It's about damned time! Let the investigations begin!

    After all when Obama made this statement recently at a campaign stop, and again on Stewart:

    Maybe now we can find out....

    the Hill also reports this:

    Republicans are likely to urge the Obama administration not to shred documents as they transition to the House majority. 



    Before the election, GOP officials on Capitol Hill privately discussed the issue but refrained from publicly tackling it, not wanting to assume what would happen on Election Day.

 Now that Republicans will control the House, the shredding matter will move front and center.

    I would rather they use their mandate from the American people to fix the mess the democrats have made for the last 6 years.

    There will be time to investigate after we win the 2012 elections. And I believe the majority of Americans feel the same way. Get to work and stop this train wreck before it goes off the bridge with all of us. Republicans prove they can fix the mess, then the American people will have no problem giving us the WH and Senate in 12.

    BTW J-Mac, I grew up in a little town called Moncks Corner.

    Except for the fact that Democrats have only controlled Congress for four years and the White House for two years.

    It was the Republicans who were in control for the first six years of the decade and who laid the foundations for our economy's collapse. But don't let facts get in the way of your partisanship.

    Ah, FFG....Revisionist to the end eh? You are correct that demo's have been in control of congress for 4 years, and the WH for two, however, it was demo laid policies that caused this melt down, and you know it.

    No doubt, but I think we can do both.

    As for Moncks Corner, not sure where that is but I have heard of it....

    It all started in 2006 when the first housing bubble burst. Not to over simplify and blame it all on the gov't or political parties, but I'm pretty sure before 2006 it was Reps in Congress and the White House.

    Yeah, and before that it was Clinton, and before that it was Carter? The damage done during liberal controlled congresses is what caused the housing failure, and you can link it back to Union involvement targeting banks that refused to lend to people who couldn't afford the houses too. Then after Franklin Rains got done ripping us off, it collapsed and you liberals want to blame it on the repubs...What a load of crap....

    Watch it this time:

    Shh. This is something that apparently can only be blamed on the Democrats.

    Odd how republicans are never accountable for their actions. it's always someone else's fault. The media, democrats, minotities, someone other than republicans. That's personal responsibility for you.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
