Wednesday of Holy WeekBlowin' in the wind
In the last State legislative session, Republicans attempted to move forward legislation that would have ended the "driving certificate" scheme for illegal aliens. That legislation was killed by the Democratic majority in the House (after all, Democrats would not want to offend illegal aliens, a group that has proven to be key to Democratic victories all over the country by voting for Democrats illegally).
The bill comes up again this time around, but now it looks like it will pass because the Governor has agreed to sign it. Acting like a flock of sheep following a Judas Goat, the Democratic majority in the House and Democrats in the Senate will now go along with the legislation (for the most part) because Phil Almighty has agreed to sign it.
Republicans have been pushing to bring this travesty of the law to an end for months, and now there comes a bill that will do this and the Governor agrees to sign the legislation. It is great for Tennessee to uphold our immigration laws, so I am glad the Governor is going to sign the bill. How do his allies in the press feel about this? This morning's Tennessean gives the Honorable Phil Governor all the credit for the passage of the legislation. Republicans push this for a small eternity, and the press gives their Lord and Savior all the accolades.
This is how this man carries 95 counties and enjoys the closest thing to dictatorial power in this country since Huey Long. Fortunately, there are a few Democrats who see right through him. The problem with Bredesen is not his political party (as some believe that I think), the problem with the Governor is that he has no beliefs, no passion, and I do not believe that he would stand up and really fight for anything. There are plenty of so-called "leaders" like this in both parties in this country. Bredesen is, however, the most blatant example I have ever seen.
Phil Bredesen holds up his finger, and whichever way the wind happens to blow, Phil goes that direction like a kite.
