Did Your Surprise Meter Register Anything?

Who could have ever imagined?

TPM reports:

Pelosi: Bush Admin Barred Officials From Briefing Congress on Impending Financial Crisis In Fall  2008

Nearly two years after the Wall Street meltdown drove the U.S. economy to the brink of collapse, and forced the U.S. government to prop up major financial institutions with hundreds of billions of dollars, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi now claims that the Bush Administration prohibited its own top officials who were handling the emerging crisis from briefing Congress until a complete financial collapse was only hours away.

In little-noticed statements to reporters over the last few weeks, Pelosi has alleged that the Bush administration knew well in advance of its intervention that the financial crisis would hit, and that Congress would need to authorize a historic and unpopular bailout – but that top officials, including then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, told her that they had been barred from briefing Congress about true extent of the crisis.

Yeah, who could ever have imagined that the “Take No Blame” administration would suppress information that might be detrimental to them or the GOP in the upcoming elections?  I was so surprised that my meter…failed to register anything at all.

Too bad impeachment was never on Speaker Pelosi’s table.  If ever there was a case that the impeachment clause was written for it was the entire presidency of GW Bush.  If only somebody had given him a BJ….
