I am calling on all Republicans, conservatives, moderates and like-minded people to demand the Republican strategy change for the better.
It is time we start proactively governing, stop making apologies and to start treating the Democrats as they are : lying, psychotic hypocrites who are dangerously steering our country towards complicity and ruin.
Writing your local and national representatives is just one of the many steps we can take. Writing the few right-leaning media outlets is another. I do not condone pulling donations to Republicans, nor do I condone bastardizing our party through silence.
We are faced with one of the most daunting and troubling times in the history of our country. And it starts at home.
President Bush is "under assault" from the left and due to his lame duck status - is being left to swing in the wind. As the 2008 elections are nearing - it is clear elected Reps, in fear of losing another Congressional election, are apathetic to what has occurred since day 1 of President Bush being elected and refuse to vocally and publicly make a stand. In fact, the fringed left will tell you - he wasn't "really" elected. Primarily due to not understanding the Electoral College, but also due to their hatred and disdain for the man himself and the entire Republican party's ideology.
Payback for Clinton's impeachment is paramount to the left. Though again, many fringe left will argue he never was impeached by the House - due again to their ignorance of what impeachment actually means.
Scooter Libby is the "fall guy and scape goat" for Bush, Cheney and Rove. Those aren't my words, they are from the head juror in the case itself. Which we all know has nothing to do with Plame's bogus claim of outing, but instead - the case Fitzgerald wasted millions on - is about Libby's "bad memory" aka perjury. Yet, the ability for those who knew her status and discussed her openly - Novak, Isikoff, Woodward and others - to "forget" is just a-ok. Regardless of the fact each one of these folks "outed" Plame before Libby even knew who she was and what her connection was to Joe Wilson.
The firing of 8 U.S. attorneys is the new red herring of the month. The Constitution provides the President the ability to hire and fire whatever person he deems fit, based on party, ideology and or performance. Like Clinton's firing of 93 U.S. attorney's. He had the right, the mandate and the green light to do it, no one questions that. But we should be questioning why Bush's actions are any different. Semantics appear to be the partisan led "smoking gun". Dems will tell you the difference is - Clinton did it all at once, in 1993 upon taking office, past Presidents have done it and Bush is really "guilty", because he replaced his own appointees. Well, its clear accountability falls on deaf Dem ears. In other words - they are making the point his partisan (legal) firings are bad because the attorneys were appointed by him and he doesn't have the ability to assess their jobs. So folks, if you are a business owner or manager - you must rely on your competitor to hire and fire your own employees. The Democratic logic is amazing.
I have written extensively on the pork expenditure hypocrisy of the left, led by the moral compass - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Several media outlets have posted articles on the expenditures, but with more of a "hmmm, thats odd" approach - without really going for the proverbial juggler. She and the Dem's are getting a pass from everyone - namely Republicans themselves and the Democratic mouthpieces are in overdrive to tell you , this bill is more about "emergency funding", not the war and more audaciously - the $24 billion in pork was necessary. I want one Democrat, not from California, to tell me why it is necessary to reward spinach farmers with $25 million due to E Coli contamination where 4 people died and over 200 were sickened. And I would like to know why the Congressional Research Services - who report expenditures to Congress, has been suspended until Sept 2008.
Not only are Ms Pelosi and the Democrats liars and hypocrites, but they are also completely unaccountable. Instead of a free pass and inane "investigations" led by the Dem controlled Congress - why aren't Republicans flooding the airwaves, blogs, newspapers and sky-writing this blatant abuse of power? Most likely due to the 2008 elections and their very existence. But we as citizens aren't afraid of not being reelected, nor are we concerned with politics as usual. No, we are the ones who die and get sick. We are the ones who represent the military with our blood and lives. We are American citizens.
Lets start acting like it.
