Mr Biden said at an event in Deerfield Beach, Florida: “If there has been a basis upon which you can pursue someone for a criminal violation, they will be pursued, not out of vengeance, not out of retribution, out of the need to preserve the notion that no one, no attorney general, no president - no one is above the law."

His statement is the strongest indication yet that an Obama administartion might seek legal redress against the President George W. Bush. It could undermine Mr Obama’s message of bipartisanship and moving beyond the battles over Iraq.

In April, Mr Obama struck a similar note when he promised that he would ask his attorney general to review the Bush administration’s decisions to differentiate between "genuine crimes" and "really bad policies".

"If crimes have been committed, they should be investigated," he told the Philadelphia Daily News. "You're also right that I would not want my first term consumed by what was perceived on the part of Republicans as a partisan witch hunt, because I think we've got too many problems we've got to solve."

Democrats on Capitol Hill have issued a blizzard of subpoenas to Bush administration aides as part of a inquiries into the authorisation of brutal interrogation tactics used at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp.
Three White House officials have been held in criminal contempt of Congress for refusing to respond to subpoenas. Former counsel Harriet Miers, former chief political adviser Karl Rove and current chief of staff Josh Bolten have all refused to appear.

Gets my vote and I will for the first time this "fall".

Biden just says it like it is without all the pc crap thrown in by most politicos. That frightens some people and again, some say makes him "unstable" . But what now frightens the crap out of me is, what if, and I do hope not, Mc bush gets in and Michael Palins sister becomes the veep.

She was a Mayor of a small town and thats it! Scary

Just another Rethuglican Christo-Fascist :thumright:

She doesn't believe in evolution, maintains that Darwinism is hogwash, tried to ban books from Alaskan libraries that she didn't approve of and maintains that she wouldn't let her daughters have abortions even had they been raped. McMansion's convention lapped it up and with her Pavlovian repetition of 9/11, War on Terra, Osama bin Laden I thought a couple of the old geezers were going to pee their pants. Yeehah!!!

Palin lists her foreign experience as living in the US State closest to Russia and having travelled extensively - Canada / Iraq / Germany / Ireland. What she doesn't mention is that she only made a single trip outside the USA - she landed in Iraq but her plane re-fueled in .............. Germany and Ireland. :thumright:

The same people who believe in intelligent design are the first to get a flu jab... (mutagenic genes i.e. influenza, EVOLVE...)
I dont care that her daughter is up the duff at 17, so much for abstinence education then, but why marry the schmuck? Maybe with her "strong moral convitions" she wont be one of the 80% of teen marriages divorced inside five years. Perhaps thats why Palin feels the need to defend her sister from that nasty state trooper that divorced her. She claims hes a nutter and stalker, (so get a restraining order!), but when someone told her they couldn't get him fired, she gave them the boot, allegedly. Plausible denial totally bolloxed by those emails sent from personal accounts. So if McCain kicks the bucket or has a wobbler in office...this will be yer standby Pres. not such a great thought as McCain is 72...

Hockey Mom, MILF, freak state escapee, uber right wing hypocrite?? I am sure the arguments are raging on Wiki and others, I for one will check the Daily show to see how they take the p*ss out of her.....

By US standards that makes her experienced. :biggrin:

If she doesn't believe in evolution, does that make her an amoeba?
