Well doh!

Senate majority leader Harry Reid says those mean, nasty Republicans are just so busy blocking the Democratic agenda in the Senate that he and his party just can’t keep their campaign promises.

Memo to Senator Reid: That’s what an opposition party does. Back when the Republicans controlled the Senate, the Democrats did the same thing: tried to block judicial appoints, filibustered when it fit the agenda and played obstructionist.

What the tired old expression about a pot calling the kettle black? Applies to tired old politicians as well.

Reid blames GOP for blocking measuresSenate Majority Leader Harry Reid can point to a few victories, but he less to brag about on two major issues.

    Wish in one hand, shit in the other and see which one fills up faster.

    The reality is that a large number of Americans buy into conservative dogma. You can not blame the Democrats for every “RED” state RepubliCON in congress.

    The real solution is to turn out voters who agree that this war is a disaster no matter how it is spun.

    Ill remind you that back when Clinton was president the republicans hated him so much that they openly blocked bills that they agreed would be good for the country but that they didnt want to pass since it would be seen as his “legacy”. I dont think the dems are at all the same.

    Well, it is obvious the Democrats are going along for the ride with Bush.

    The Democratic House waved its magic wand and gave
    the Chimp full wiretaping privileges without any FISA oversight. There is some conjecture going around that the Chimp Administration may very well have privately threatend Democratic leaders with another 9/11 if they challenge the Chimp administration too much.

    And if you think that is beyond the pale, see what this columnist, Stu Bykofsky, from Philadelphia Daily News said last Friday and quoted below:

    “America’s fabric is pulling apart like a cheap sweater.

    What would sew us back together?

    Another 9/11 attack.

    The Golden Gate Bridge. Mount Rushmore. Chicago’s Wrigley Field. The Philadelphia subway system. The U.S. is a target-rich environment for al Qaeda.

    Is there any doubt they are planning to hit us again?

    If it is to be, then let it be. It will take another attack on the homeland to quell the chattering of chipmunks and to restore America’s righteous rage and singular purpose to prevail”.


    And Michael Chertoff has also commented recently that he ‘feels in his gut’ that there will be an Al Qaeda attack in the US this summer, the guy who let New Orleans be destroyed.

    And of course, I know, one is just a columnist, but the other is a Chimp Administration official. They’re trying it on the public to check for reaction, but I’m sure they know that Wal-Mart is first & foremost on Amerikas mind.

    Have you ever known BushCo and Big Dick Cheney to ever hold back when it comes to their PNAC machinations!

    The Democratic house is nothing more then a bunch of self-emasculated weenies (and ovaries) and Bush is riding over them like Hitler rode over Germany after the Reichstag fire, convincing President Hindenburg to
    enact an emergency measure, suspending the parliment until new rigged elections could be set to consolidate the Nazi party majority by doing away with the opposing parties, doing away with habeas corpus, and implementing the enabling act which gave Hitler power by decree.

    Some familiar rings in this, is there not?

    Hitler would be proud of the Chimp & the Dick

    When the republicans were the majority, they had it their way. Now that the democrats are the majority, the republicans have it their way. Obviously, it has nothing to do with party majority. When the result is the same, what does that tell you about the political parties?
