Anyone want to speculate how much time and money is wasted on this?

"It is not enough merely to cease the abuses of power and apparent criminality that marked the highest levels of George W. Bush's administration. We cannot simply shrug off the constitutional and criminal misbehavior of the administration, treat it as an aberration and hope it won't happen again. The misbehavior was not an aberration--aspects of it, particularly the idea that the president is above the law, were present in Watergate and in the Iran/Contra scandal. To fully restore the rule of law and prevent any repetition of Bush's misconduct, the abuses of his administration must be directly confronted. As Indiana University law professor Dawn Johnsen--recently tapped by Obama to head his Office of Legal Counsel--wrote in Slate last March, "We must avoid any temptation simply to move on. We must instead be honest with ourselves and the world as we condemn our nation's past transgressions and reject Bush's corruption of our American ideals."

What we need to do is conceptually simple. We need to launch investigations to get at the central unanswered questions of Bush's abuse of power, commence criminal proceedings and undertake institutional, statutory and constitutional reforms. Perhaps all these things don't need to be done at once, but over time--not too much time--they must take place. Otherwise, we establish a doctrine of presidential impunity, which has no place in a country that cherishes the rule of law or considers itself a democracy."

Oh freekin get over it! You and your messiah have the White House, now you want to do a political cleansing as well, I guess the re-education camps are next. Sig Hiel....Sig Hiel... Constitutional reforms????? You want to change the constitution now.... I hear your fellow worshipers are proposing we do away with the 22nd amendment which sets term limits on the president....so we can have Obama for life....are you freeking kidding me. You idiots that can't even read a history book and know that what Bush did was nothing compared to the step we too during the Civil War, WWI or WWII. I guess Abraham Lincoln should be held in contempt for having people arrested from the floor of the House. Or all the Dem's that were involved with the internment camps during WWII. Hey I know why don't we torture the former administration...would that get your willys. I guess you people won't be satisfied until we are attacked again and you can all laydown and surrender and apollogize to Osama for anything we have done to offend him....maybe then he will allow you to live ... probably not. I hope the release the guys from Gitmo into your neighborhood....maybe you can have those innocent people over for dinner....you would probably be on the menu.

presidential impunity
No need to look any further than the last Democrat to hold the office to see a prime example.

Your question is kinda dumb.

You ask the question as though it might be the wrong thing to do. Then, you launch into all the things you would do to waste all that time and money. It would be a waste.

All that crapola has already been investigated and nothing was found. If there was anything found, Bush would have been impeached.

How about we launch an investigation to unlock Barry Hussein's birth certificate and prove whether he can legally be President or not?

How about an investigation into how the people of the US that voted for Obama could be that stupid?

And why exactly didn't the congress do this already while they were in the majority? This would be really stupid for them to do, their margin would quickly dwindle.

Yeah, well heck. Bush/Cheney has already been investigated to the tee.

They have to find something. Even if it has to be making a new law retroactive to the Bush years. That would be no surprise.

Its a mission in life for the Bush haters. They are truly sick, sick people and can't help themselves.

I'll get worried when they open the office of the "central scrutinizer" which has been dormant since the days of Tipper Gore's rage against the music industry.

Your too late. They have already went past that stage. Not the attacking part because President Bush has halted that. But these idiots have already surrendered. They will be branded with a big 'L' on their forehead.
