The Left Backs DeLay Into Corner
LifeNews.com is reporting that House leaders have determined that they will not hold hearings on whether federal judges abused their authority by ignoring congressional subpoenas as well as key provisions of the federally-enacted “Terri’s Law”. That law required federal courts to hold a fresh trial in the Terri Schiavo case; yet federal courts simply reviewed the record amassed by the Florida state judge intent on ending Terri’s life.
Following Terri’s painful demise – many leading Republicans announced that they would hold courts accountable.
“The time will come for the men responsible for this to answer for their behavior,” Tom DeLay said in the first couple days after Terri’s death. “…the House will look at an arrogant and out-of-control judiciary that thumbs its nose at Congress and the president.”
But following weeks of pounding by the Left and their lap-puppies in the nation’s media, Tom DeLay now seems content to let the matter simply fade away.
Rep. Bob Inglis, a South Carolina Republican, told reports this week that many lawmakers don’t want to hold hearings unless it can be proven one of the judges did something illegal.
Now wait just a minute: How can the Congress take notice of judicial misconduct if it refuses to holds hearings and an investigation?
Oh - now I get it: No hearings, no uncomfortable need to take action.
But the question lingers: Will surrender to the Left on this Schiavo matter help DeLay keep his job? And even if it does – who will be left to stand against the courts in order to protect the Republic?
