    It's easy, really. You pay people to put up barriers there, and then you pay other people to make sure nobody goes around the barriers, and then you blame the republicans for shutting down the government by not giving you enough money to operate the stone structure that doesn't normally have any operational costs.

    Bush isn't in charge of the National Park Service.

    No. That never happened.

    Bush years Amnesia. It's a common ailment among the Right.

    Joint Bush-Cheney testimony is a concession for 9/11 panel Members opted to break an investigatory tradition - question separately - to get Bush on board. - Philly.com

    President Bush's plan to appear before the Sept. 11 commission with Vice President Cheney at his side violates a fundamental rule of investigations, but the panel accepted the unusual arrangement to get Bush's cooperation.
    Of course, you might just be lying.

    That 9/11 commission was nothing more than another bad joke played on American taxpayers.

    Now that the GOP has been completely humiliated by Obama, I hope they hold those investigation -- to make sure the American people remember just how badly the Republicans lost on this issue due to the resolve of the Democrats.
