When Ann Coulter is being humorous, sometimes she says things that make people uncomfortable. Sometimes she offends people. But she is always very true to her message which is that Republicans have shown no spine in the past few years and that Democrats, by and large, do not have our nation's best interests at heart. Furthermore, many of the supercilious, bloviating Democratic boneheads live in glass houses of major proportions. But in today's column, Ann lays it right on the line without equivocation, and I agree with her completely:
"I refuse to parse the inane allegations the Democrats are making, to point out that Clinton's wholesale firing of Republican U.S. attorneys was worse, or to mention that some of these U.S. attorneys should have been fired a long time ago (Carol Lam).

"Bush should say: "We did it, it was political, and there's nothing you can do about it." Then he should start holding hearings on Congress' obstruction of the war effort.

"Members of Congress should be asked to come before the administration's hearings and testify under oath about their commitment to victory. If they are not traitors, what do they have to hide? Surely they will be willing to state under oath that they are not undermining the war effort for partisan political gain. The hearings could be televised in prime time: "Traitor or No Traitor?" "

President Bush, I know you came into office a little over 6 years ago as the great conciliator. Unfortunately, you are attempting to build bridges to people whose only delight is in destroying those selfsame bridges. It's time to smack these jerks down hard and fast and get back to doing the job that needs to be done. We know you're capable of it, at the moment it's your willingness that is in question. You have every right under the Constitution to do this. What is more, you OUGHT to do it. It's time the renegade, arrogant, seditious twits in the U.S. Congress learned who IS the President!

Under what provision of the constitution does the president have the power to hold hearings?
