Rep. John Yarmuth (D-Louisville) gave Condi Rice the what for during today’s House Oversight and Government Reform Committee meeting.
According to The Arena, Yarmuth accused Rice and the Bush Administration of what amounts to b-s-filled lies.
“…Isn’t it fairly obvious that you’re afraid of concealing negative information, and that any person with half a brain would understand that the situation is not good, or else you’d want to talk about it?” Yarmuth asked Rice.
Yarmuth told her that he and others were elected to Congress last fall because the American people were convinced “that they weren’t leveled with about the conduct of this war, and that…if the administration had been more candid, then maybe the approval rating for what we’re doing over there would be of reasonable levels.”
“And, unfortunately, this total stonewalling and lack of candor is what’s contributing to a lack of confidence in the American people,” the Louisville lawmaker said.
Nice to see a Democrat holding someone accountable, isn’t it? Strange in this day and age, that’s for sure, because most Democrats in D.C. are an absolute waste of a vote. Yarmuth is one of only a few who aren’t raging cowards like Nancy Pelosi and Ben Chandler.
