Quisling PelosiSome more militant Democrats are accusing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of "caving" to Republicans. I'll be the first to admit that Pelosi and her colleagues are an utter and complete failure, which is why Congress has an 11% approval rating. Pelosi-ever true to form-is blaming the minority for the fact that she, Steny Hoyer, and their entire band of merry thugs have so disgraced themselves:
"The assumption that I made...that Republicans would see the light...was an
inaccurate one," she allowed.
Let me get the straight: The 2006 General Election turned on a few thousand votes in a few key precincts in marginal districts, and this woman thinks we are all supposed to play follow the leader? Apparently, Ms. Pelosi forgets what Congress' national approval rating is, and that if it remains that low in an election year she will be far less likely to retain her Speaker's chair. She also forgets that a whole lot of this country still voted Republican and sent Republicans to Congress by hefty margins of victory, yet the San Francisco Treat thinks we all owe it to her to do things her way. I did not send my Republican Congressman to Washington to see Nancy Pelosi's light, or anything else of Pelosi's to be seen.
Yet the Democrats tell us "wait till next year." Yes indeed-wait for more quisling cowardice from a woman who has done nothing for the last 12 months but disgrace the Office of Speaker of the House and the Republic itself. I am quite glad the Democrats elected this woman, for she may be the Republicans' guarantee of Congressional victory in 2008.
Did my Democratic friends really expect this woman to be a feminine version of Sam Rayburn or Tip O'Neill? She is unworthy to so much as sit in the same chair, let alone roam the same halls or breathe the same air as those great statesmen. She does have one attribute that makes her stand alone compared to those hallowed old Democratic predecessors: She is WEAK-WEAK-WEAK!
