She Who Must Not Be Named Wins Democrat Debate

Posted by Mike on October 30, 2007

I have this Democrat debate on in the background and I’d like to let you all know that you’re not missing much. The donkeys still lack the seriousness needed in a Commander in Chief. John Edwards already sounds like a high school dropout who thinks he’s intelligent because he saw a Michael Moore DVD in mother’s basement. Apparently, he’s actually more afraid of the “the neocons” than the Iranians. As for the rest of them, they are convinced that calling the Iranian regime a terrorist regime is akin to a declaration of war.  Worst of all, Senator Gravel isn’t there for comic relief.

Even though it’s only the second quarter, She Who Must Not Be Named has already won this debate. It is much easier to pretend to be moderate when surrounded by these freaks. The way this is going, she could literally duplicate her western counterpart’s performance in the Wizard of Oz, complete with green paint, and she would still seem more Presidential than all of the others combined. It’s a dubious distinction I know, but if she can continue to disguise her true beliefs and keep this foil going after the Democrat coronation, she will be a formidable foe. Thankfully, she will face tougher competition next year.

Democrats Poor Record

Posted by Ryan on October 30, 2007

This Politico article quote regarding the “revised” SCHIP bill says it:

“They spent $1.5 million through their various shill outreach groups attacking me and a handful of my colleagues,” Rep. Ric Keller (R-Fla.) said before the Hoyer meeting, “but they did not spend five minutes to approach me to ask for my vote.”

People are noticing.  Despite the “outreach” effort, the Dems led by Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, only switched one Republican vote which happened to be against the new measure!  With abysmal approval ratings, now even Mr. “New Tone,” President Bush, is coming out and taking them to task!  The 110th Congress is a disaster.  Here’s George today:

“The House of Representatives has wasted valuable time on a constant stream of investigations, and the Senate has wasted valuable time on an endless series of failed votes to pull our troops out of Iraq.”

With the Dems looking for something other than a slightly higher minimum wage (woo hoo?) to run on next year, they are going to need some real legislative accomplishments, not just window dressing.  That’s where the Republicans have to come in and demanded compromise to stem the tide of liberalism, and create a road back to the more responsible government philopsophy in which they once believed.  The Republicans can help to foment an anti-incumbency mood between now and next year if they stay consistent and on the offensive against the politically weak Dems in Congress.  She Who Must Not Be Named, however, is another concern altogether, but having a Republican Congress to stymie her blatant socialism would be critical if the worst-case scenario were to take place.
