He Said She Said

As suspected the Rove Ordeal has become a matter of who said she said he said that we did this and said that to her and his cousin and who's wife was employed where at what time etc. All this could easily be addressed in the future.

How? What crazily mighty idea could this be?

Record it. Tape record everything that happens on the White House phones. Use he provisions provided within the PATRIOT Act on these folks. If you are calling from the White House, those calls need to be recorded. Many investment companies have implimented such systems, I mean this movie is full of taped telephone calls from Enron's employees.

What about National Security conversations? Well those can still be classified, but in the event that said telephone conversations occured with a reporte than perhaps National Security isn't much of a priority for that phone call, so it should be subpoenable.

If a conversation is criminal these days, than we the people deserve that much oversight on everyone in washington. Any and all public buildings where government business is being performed daily, those telephone calls all need to be recorded.

Just think of the millions of dollars that could have been saved in this investigation, and the mountain of evidence that could have been provided to the Grand Jury if something as simple as recordings were available.

So Democrats, here is yet another legislative idea for your idea starved party. Record all telephone conversations initiated or recieved on government owned (that means we the people's tax dollars paid for it) telephones.
