Hypocrisy Reigns Supreme

The Guardian is reporting that an AP-Ipsos poll shows that the numbers for Congress have just caught the President's. As you might guess, they are both on the way to the tank.

People think the Democratic-led Congress is doing just as dreary a job as President Bush, following four months of bitter political standoffs that have seen little progress on Iraq and a host of domestic issues.

As time wears on, people have been seeing that the Democratic-led Congress is not getting the job done. But really now, what else did we expect? After all, they are politicians. They say anything to get elected and then they dodge the bullet by blaming the President. They said they would clean up corruption, they would work a longer week, and would force George Bush to pull the troops out of Iraq. They claimed they wanted healthcare for everyone and wouldn't use earmarks.

Well? So far, all we have seen is a power struggle. We've seen calls for the resignations of administration officials. We've seen a bill sent to the President that they knew he wouldn't sign and they could not override. But in all of that, we haven't seen any willingness to get things done, like they claimed last fall when they were making their sales pitches to the American people.

Way to go Democrats. That's showing us.

And while we are at it, what the hell is getting into Republicans these days? Have you read this one from WND?

While some evangelical Christians are defending the presidential candidacy of Mormon Mitt Romney from an attack by Al Sharpton, another prominent pastor is going further in his condemnation – saying a vote for the former Massachusetts governor is a vote for Satan.

That's the word from Bill Keller, host of the Florida-based Live Prayer TV program as well as

Add this to the other idiotic statements made by the "so-called" Christian leadership.

First, we had James Dobson saying Fred Thompson is not a "Christian. We have everyone asking Rudy about his stand on abortion. (The MSM does it primarily to throw controversy into the GOP race, but the evangelical right does it as a litmus test.) And now we have this moment of judgmental haughtiness.

Have you forgotten there is a war on here? Have you all forgotten there is a porous border and a flow of illegal immigrants that will eventually crash our healthcare system and possibly a few that want to harm us? That's what we have to be concerned with here, not whether someone is the specific kind of Christian each of us feels ought to be in charge (or not).

We do not need to be worrying about abortion either. We all know the GOP candidates are forever promising the world when it comes to repealing Roe V. Wade, yet they never do.

What's wrong with focusing on the important issues of the day?

Besides that, what difference does it make who is what? I am not Mormon, I do not agree with the Mormon doctrine. But, I do not care about a candidate's specific denomination. I only care about what he is going to do to make this a better country. I am not hiring him to be my spiritual leader.

Way to go Republicans. That's showing us.
