Delay Makes Gingrich Look Like Mother Theresa
The last time there was a coup in the House like this was when Newt was neutered by his own party since he was thought to be a liability to the GOP. If the right did that then, then no one, and I mean no one, better stand up for Delay. Here's why. First, the spending. And this is why I hate the left so much...the House has spent more money on gvt goodies than the Clintons did and the left has buried us for doing so. I have no idea what the hell Delay and Frist were thinking about the last five years. Did they think that they could spend the party into favor with the left? Why has this lesson been lost on this administration? You can't buy favor with the left, even when you out-spend those dolts on all the crap they love. Second, besides the spending, and this is linked to spending, the highway bill pork and the medicare cards did it for me. How in Christ's name could medicare cards be paid for let alone reform the very issue it's trying to target. Medicare cards will be the biggest entitlement since LBJ's Great Society. Third, leadership. Delay is a poster boy for what the leaderless right has become - go along to get along, spend to win favor, and do nothing to win the hearts and minds of the nation who gave the right the privilege to sit in majority for six years.
Now how does the right make this situation better? First, get rid of Delay, permanently. Second, and this will be the toughest for the right to do, someone needs to be in the Chair with more fiscal restraint and leadership than Delay. I don't see anyone on the right side of the aisle that will do either of these things.
While I think this is a witch-hunt, and it is, Earl is a pimp hell bent on nailing anyone and any company who uses the same rules the Democrats use to fund campaigns - there is an undeniable attempt by this man in going after the right for any alledged impropriety at any level. Still, Delay needs to do the honorable thing and step down permanently, not only for the reasons of the gerrymandering indictment, but for the very fact that he is bad for the GOP. He is a shade better than Frist. But put together, they are less than half the leader Gingrich ever was. The GOP owes a huge apology to Newt.
Sorry, Newt. Can you come back and help us - there is an empty seat in the House.
The same governement that STILL can't get out troops the supplies they need and is still not reimbursing troops who buy own body armor.
But by all means, point the finger at Clinton if it helps you get over the cognitive dissonance of supporting these sleaze balls.
3. War in Afghanistan
4. War in Iraq
5, NO ONE SPENDS MONEY ON TAX CUTS
6. The Senate.
If the Senate had a daggone backbone, we wouldn't have to kiss their freakin' butts to get anything passed! The Congress got most of the bills passed w/o the rats. The Senate spends money like it's going out of style.
I LOVE TOM DELAY!
So there. lol.
So, you're saying you're against local decision-making?
And did you know that the Leave No Child Behind Act requires schools to give the military my children's names and address so they can try recruiting them (unless I sign a form asking to be left alone)?
Makes it more clear what they mean when they say, "Leave No Child Behind."
Me, I'm for gov't staying out of my business and letting localities make their own policies. That used to be a conservative principle, too.
