Well, America, here’s your new Democratic Congress for you.
House and Senate vote to set a deadline for America’s defeat, funded by votes bought with pork.
They said that they would provide patriotic leadership, but their votes say otherwise.
They said they wanted to do the right thing in Iraq, but their votes say otherwise.
They said they supported the troops, but their votes say otherwise.
They said they would end the corruption in Congress, but the way their votes were bought says otherwise.
For a mere
$42 billion [oops, only $41 billion – my bad] of your cash, America, they’re selling out your troops and everyone that sided with America against tyranny and terrorism. Not only whores, but cheap whores. They’re trying to sell the war for a bit of cash.
Murdoc would like to apologize.
For the past six years and more, (and since this site started over four years back) I’ve bashed Republicans for their petty politics and their outright corruption. I’ve been hard on President Bush and his administration at times because I thought they weren’t doing everything they could or should for America and for the cause of freedom. I’ve claimed that they were not serving the Conservative ideals that got them elected.
Even though I believe my position was correct, I’ve been wrong to say so out loud.
As horrible and terrible as Republican leadership has been, as corrupt and self-centered as those in power have behaved, they don’t hold a candle to the Democrats.
I’ve argued with a lot of Conservatives that some of the Democrats’ points were valid. I’ve argued with a lot of Conservatives that maybe it was just as well if the Republicans suffered for their behavior in the 2006 elections. I’ve argued with a lot of Conservatives that the Democrats couldn’t really do a whole lot worse.
Murdoc was very terribly, horribly wrong.
Veto this damn bill and make damn sure we don’t let anyone forget who is gleefully trying to sell us out.
I was really holding out hope that the Senate would reject this thing. I was really holding out hope that I wouldn’t have to go over completely to the Republican side.
But, unfortunately, as of tonight I utterly reject the Democrats. I oppose everything they stand for if it’s at odds with the Republicans. The Republicans aren’t good. Not at all. And I don’t particularly like standing shoulder to shoulder with them.
But this move to legally demand a defeat on the battlefield is morally, ethically, and patriotically reprehensible. I don’t care if it’s just a big stunt. I don’t care if it’s a maneuver to get the pork through while everyone argues over the Iraq deadline. They publicly and officially are calling for defeat and they must be stamped out.
Too much is at stake to let the Democrats make any meaningful decisions.
I am so ashamed.
I didn’t think I’d ever be here.
