I know I wasn’t the only person to catch the puke fest held at the White House between President Bush, Speaker Pelosi and other key Democrats as they muddled their way through a press conference trying to convince the American public that they CAN find common ground, they CAN work together toward a greater cause and the CAN put partisan politics aside to achieve great goals in these last 2 years of Bush’s Administration.
I needed a case of barf bags just to get through it! Who exactly did they think they were fooling?
The very same day as the Blue-Tie love fest, you’ve got this from Congressman Waxman:
“I’m going to have an interesting time because the Government Reform Committee has jurisdiction over everything,” Waxman said Friday, three days after his party’s capture of Congress put him in line to chair the panel. “The most difficult thing will be to pick and choose.”
The man was practically drooling. Hell, I think he was drooling.
Have we learned nothing from the Clinton era? How much time wasted? How much money wasted? How trivial we must have appeared to the rest of the world as the collective “We” revelled in every single dirty detail about blow jobs in the back hallways of the White House.
The Dems have an axe to grind - we get it. We get that they want revenge. We get that they have an agenda - - we know that the next two years will be a huge waste of time during a time, that history will most likely prove, we don’t have the precious time to waste.
This time - - right here, right now.. today would be the absolute best time for the Democrats to stand up and stop the cycle of madness and partisan politics and PROVE that they really want to be the party of progress and change. Do you think it will happen? No, it won’t. The Democrats have a rare moment in time to show that they want to move forward with agendas that are BEST for this country and its people. I realize the temptation to sharpen the donkey axe on the elephant stone is great… HUGE and hard to resist - - but for crying out loud - resist already! Stop the madness!
I know - I’m optimistic. I always have been. My father once told me that was one of my best attributes and one of my greatest character flaws.
I’m not giving Bush, or his Administration a pass. This is not to say that this Administration is squeaky clean and that there aren’t issues that do need to be investigated in order to understand how and why certain things happened - however, in a day and age where you have the head of MI5, just today, revealing just how scary the terrorist threat is becoming in the West - - you have this Waxman monkey STILL musing about the controversy over the leak of CIA operative Valerie Plame’s name!
Ironic that Pelosi and Reid sit in the Oval Office insisting that they are progressively looking FORWARD, when the rest of their party is looking backward, standing in a pool of self-indulgent drool.1f99
