I am here to say to Congress that as an American citizen I really don't care that much about Roger Clemens and whether or not he took performance enhancing substances. If he did, then that's sad for him and sad for baseball. But I assure you that it is no way, shape, or form worthy of Congress' time or effort. Hell, it's not even worth the time of TV channels like CNN where they feel the need to run story after story about this. Aren't you a real news channel?
This could be another elaborate smoke screen to blind the American people from the real issues facing them. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Henry Waxman and Republican Tom Davis should stop worrying about a game (that's right guys, baseball is just a game) and start focusing their attention on much more important issues. When you were elected did you think your constituents wanted this to be what you focused on?
Here is a short list of some of the oversight committees that would make more sense than wasting taxpayers' money on finding out about a game someone may or may not have cheated on:
How about a committee to look into a president who lied to get us into a war for oil?
Waxman and Davis are very concerned about how Clemens lied under oath; well, what about Bush? This is just my opinion, I know that the war is much more than just oil. But you can't help but wonder when Halliburton gets no bid contracts and the real enemy isn't even in Iraq. You want to try Clemens for perjury, then the same should apply to everyone who takes the oath to serve and protect our country, don't you think? Hell, I'd even settle for a committee to investigate just one of the lines of bull that "Dubya" has fed us: Iraq's involvement in 9/11, wiretapping, torture, Katrina response, WMDs, Valerie Plame, his relationship with the Saudis, etc.
