Oversight, Oversight, Who's Got the Oversight?
Sometimes you just have to sigh. Senator Mitch McConnell says taxpayers "deserve nothing less" than "tough scrutiny and oversight" of the economic recovery bill that the Obama administration hopes to pass in its opening days. You mean, like the tough scrutiny and oversight Republicans insisted upon when voting for the financial industry bailout?
Oversight is necessary, of course. Republicans just aren't very good at it, as the Bush administration's implementation of TARP makes clear. Republicans should stop posturing and leave oversight to the Dems.
