Is the GOP trying to Lose? Looking at this story leads me to the belief that perhaps they are. In a highly unusual move, key Republicans in Congress are seeking to declassify testimony that former White House terrorism adviser Richard Clarke gave in 2002 about the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said Friday. Frist said the intent was to determine whether Clarke lied under oath — either in 2002 or this week — when he appeared before a bipartisan Sept. 11 commission and sharply criticized President Bush (news - web sites)'s handling of the war on terror. "Until you have him under oath both times you don't know," Frist said. ... No immediate information was available on how the declassification process works, but one GOP aide said the CIA (news - web sites) and perhaps the White House would play a role in determining whether to make the testimony public. Frist disclosed the effort to declassify Clarke's testimony in remarks on the Senate floor, then talked with reporter. He said he personally didn't know whether there were any discrepancies between Clarke's two appearances. **** Oh God. As a Democrat, all I can say is BRING IT ON. They are LITERALLY plunging in the polls over this, if they turn it up a notch, this Clarke thing is guaranteed to be front in center for months. Have they lost all touch with Political reality? PLEASE, OH PLEASE do this GOP.
