Democrat Perfidy

Once again the Democrats have seized on a non-issue and the American public is expected to accept their line completely. The Mark Foley “issue” is being used by the media to distract the public’s attention from the real problems being faced. The Iraq war, a distinct part of the war on terror, illegal immigration, social security and Medicare reform is just a few of the things that the politicians should be addressing if they were providing leadership.

The Democrats simply want to get back in the leadership positions in the Congress so they can bully the Republicans. The constant blather that comes from Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and others is very wearing. Now they are engaged in gay bashing, a bit reckless since they claim to be the party of tolerance. There has been no comment from Barney Franks himself once accused of acts similar to those of Mark Foley. Let the investigation proceed apace, and let every legislator provide the logs of their emails to congressional pages all the way back to 1994, then let the results speak for themselves.

The Democrat and liberal panic has resulted in several phony issues including their cause celeb the Valerie Plame affair. It now appears that $34 million of public money spent during that investigation was a complete waste. It is now known for certain that Joe Wilson and his supporters were duping the public. They all knew that Richard Armitage was the leak. The prosecutor, Patrick Kennedy, should be indicted for malfeasance and if convicted sent to prison.

Reid and Pelosi have declined to testify during the Mark Foley investigation; why? These people are purely opportunists who care little or nothing about the people they are supposedly serving. Even this little blog has been attacked by virus laden comments.

Anyone who votes for the Democrats at this stage of their development deserves what they get, but why ruin a good thing for the rest of us?

A State of Denial

Is Bob Woodward exhibiting the effects of old age or is he simply a Democrat Party hack? Last night on the NBC Nightly News Mr. Woodward was asked about why he didn’t publish his most recent book “A State of Denial”, sooner if its contents are so important. His reply was astonishing. He coolly stated that Simon & Schuster and the leadership of the Washington Post wanted him to wait until just before the November election this year. Are liberals finally shedding their skins?

The very title of the new book is contradictory to the so-called media coverage of the Iraq war with most of the stories discussing failure and gloom. How can Woodward and company say that the public is not aware of the difficulty there? Further he goes on to say that the failure is planned in the sense that Rumsfeld thinks the Iraqi’s should take over security themselves. Everyone agrees with that one. To think that one is so powerful an influence in society and over the electorate to think that a single book can change the course of an election is arrogance personified.

This behavior is no surprise in a larger sense, but it is amazing in the casual way it has been admitted. Yesterday President Bush accused Nancy Pelosi of being a cut and run politician not willing to defend the United States. She of course was outraged and responded by saying such comments were beneath the dignity of the President. Was that some kind of joke? There is no doubt that Ms. Pelosi and her comrades might defend the country if they really believed there was a threat, but they don’t believe there is one.

This war on terror has been brewing since the British and French diplomats divided up the Ottoman Empire in the 1920’s. It has had decades to develop and will take decades to defeat. If anyone is in “A State of Denial” it is the Democrat Party and their fellow travelers.

Once again the electorate is being treated to the sight of an imperfect public servant, Mark Foley this time. The hypocrisy is rife of course on must expect that. Further it appears that Mr. Foley might not be a good candidate for dogcatcher. For all you pedophiles reading this it means your perverse behavior is not to be tolerated. This lack of tolerance extends to those members of the Man-Boy Love Association, a hateful use of the language.

Of course Bill Clinton’s behavior demanded forgiveness, understanding, and the destruction of the women who accused him of various sexual outrages. They weren’t minors and were therefore fair game for the Democrat personal destruction committee; among whose members were James Carville and Lanny Davis. It’s an all too familiar scene.

Louisiana Representative William Jefferson, a Democrat of course, had Nancy Pelosi apologizing for his mysterious acquisition of $90,000 stored in his freezer. Ms. Pelosi opined that Jefferson had grown up poor and black and could be forgiven for not being able to resist temptation. Jefferson still has his congressional seat; Foley does not and should not. Another star in the Democrat firmament, Algie Hastings, is a former Federal judge unseated for taking bribes regarding the outcomes of various trials. He is in line for a House Committee chairmanship if the Democrats are successful in November.

Voters are best served by disregarding electioneering histrionics and judging for themselves who might meet the needs of the district in which they vote. Want to win in Iraq, frustrate terrorists, keep the economy going, and then the best option seems to be the Republican Party. Have an interest in raising taxes, being defeated and hounded by terrorists, converting to Islam, speaking Spanish; then probably the Democrats are the logical choice.

Whatever a voter chooses there is a least a choice. Many people in many countries don’t have a choice or even a chance to choose. The electorate must simply act in its own self interest and the outcome will fall one way or the other and the most likely outcome will be the best one.

It might be true that the United States of America is going the way of old Europe and fading from the world stage, certainly China wants to step forth to center. For the moment the only place where rags to riches and riches to rags is truly a democratic principle is here.
