Two weeks ago, I published a post, with an embedded video as evidence showing some Democrats in denial. In it, Maxine Waters, Gregory Meeks, Artur Davis, Lace Clay, and Barney Frank (all Democrats) were all seen angrily denying (during an official hearing in 2004) there were any problems with Freddie and Fannie, while verbally debasing those claiming there was.
Today, we can see a letter drafted and sent to the, then, Senate Majority Leader and Chairman of the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee. This was in 2006.
Note the names of the people who signed this letter. One name you will find here is John McCain. One name you will not find is Barack Obama. In fact, none of the signatures you see on this letter are Democrats.
This irritates me for many reasons and since this is not a college thesis, I cannot begin to present and explain them all. But one thing I will say is this:
If the American people do not wake up and hold the Democratic controlled Congress accountable for this crisis, I have little hope for the next two years. If the American people do not hold Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid accountable for their lack of attention in this crisis, the next two years will be far more disastrous than the last.
Barack Obama was part of this farce too. He and his ACORN friends were raking it in, which is precisely why you did not see his name on this letter imploring the leadership to take a look at this. They were all so afraid the Senate would take appropriate action, which would dry up their cash cow.
But the sad thing about this isn't that they are escaping strict scrutiny in the press or being held accountable by their constituents. It's sad because they will all be re-elected, the next time they are up for re-election. There is no accountability for corrupt career politicians, unless the people vote them out.
I, for one, amd damned sick and tired of how nothing is anyone's fault. It insults my intelligence when everything is blamed on the President and none of it is Congress'e fault. When presented with the outcomes of these failures, the Dems leading this body will all respond with their favorite cliched catch-phrase of the year, "due to the failed policies of George Bush".
While it is certainly true George Bush did not use his bully pulpit effectively enough, he has little control over what Congress does. This issue was brought up more than once in the halls of Congress and each time, the Democrats put the squash on it.
Today, the bulk of the American people are too ignorant to take these things into account, when they enter the polls next month, As a result, there will no accountability, only rewards are ready to be handed out. Four years of the Presidency will be awarded to Barack Obama for his inaction. And two more years of a Democratic controlled Congress, with the comedy team of Pelosi and Reid leading it, will be awarded to them.
If this happens, do not be surprised. They will have almost absolute power to spend this nation into total bankruptcy and drive this economy into the ground much deeper, than it is today. Don't believe me? Think I am using scare tactics?
Take a look at what's coming down the pike after the election.
After consulting with Barack Obama, Democratic leaders are likely to call Congress back to work after the election in hopes of passing legislation that would include extended jobless benefits, money for food stamps and possibly a tax rebate, officials said Saturday.
The bill's total cost could reach $150 billion, these officials said.
This would be almost a trillion dollars total pork, spent in the last half of the year.
No folks, get ready for a rough ride because this is only the beginning. They are already arguing over how to divide up the spoils, before the votes are even cast and counted. If this is allowed to happen, there will be absolutely no accountability, whatsoever. If this happens the only check and balance the people will have, will be the courts. And we all know we can count on them, right?
