Today's quote comes, courtesy of The Huffington Post, from a letter to Vice President Dick Cheney by Rep. Henry Waxman, chairman of the congressional Oversight Committee, in response to the vice president's statement that his office does not fall under the umbrella of the executive branch. A refresher course in Constitution 101 appears to be in order.
Chairman Henry Waxman writes: "I question both the legality and wisdom of your actions. ... [I)t would appear particularly irresponsible to give an office with your history of security breaches an exemption from the safeguards that apply to all other executive branch officials."
Somebody needs corrective lenses, and it isn't Henry Waxman.
