Hypocrisy Revisited

And so it goes, another fine flip-flop has been noted, and brought to you by the party in power. Let's take a look at Democrats back in the Nuclear Option debate of 2005:



Now it's different.

Do you see? This is what we are talking about. It's this kind of elitist pandering that insults the average person's intelligence. If it was wrong then (and it was), it's wrong now.


ADDENDUM:

Want to see the deterioration of the unemployment numbers, take a look at this. Press play.

Boy that was a great speech by Reid. Awesome. I'm sure you've seen his colleagues as well, especially Biden's 'hope' for the Dems when they retake power.

What's left to say but hahahahahahahaha..

Yes sir...I have seen it. It's utterly pitiful isn't it?

To paraphrase the death row expression - dead man talking. We have 9 months left with this clown.

Which creates a quandary. To wish it away is to wish the summer and warmer weather away. Once his successor is sworn in, it'll be winter again.

Oh come on Sunsett, they will replace him with a "minority leader"!!! Think positive!

The hypocrisy is incredible. How these people sleep at night is beyond me.

Ambien. But they don't really sleep all that much. Just ask Patrick Kennedy.

I very much resent coming here and having to observe use of the word “naked” in connection with a film depicting Senator Hairy Reed (D-NV). There is only so much of this I am willing to take, Sunset. Be warned.

You may recall Bill Maher’s assessment of the average American’s intelligence. Well, for once, Maher and I may agree … except that Mr. Maher thinks American communists demonstrated their brilliance by electing a community organizer, and I think they behaved treasonously.

The unemployment graph is done quite well, I thought … although it does point to the fact that the sky began falling under a previous administration. And this begs the question: is there any substantial difference between Democrats and Republicans? Both are lock stepping steadily to the left; it is just that the Democrats are taking a larger step.

IMO, we should be looking for more independent minded politicians, who will go to Congress and refuse to play ball with the ‘good old boys’ of either party’s apparatus. Reed's comment "Senate Rules" irritated me. How about the people's rules?

The down side of independent mind politicians, however, is that they may end up voting the communist agenda … like Scott Brown. The upside is we can get rid of them after one term, which suggests an attention span greater than the average American is capable.

I don’t know, Sunset … is democracy fated to lead us to communism? Do we need to reestablish a monarchy to keep that from happening? Well, in speaking about monarchy, would you care to see my resume?

Not only are they taking bigger steps, they are stepping faster.
