OMG, so much political suspense and intrigue. Can Speaker Pelosi hide the fact that she will sell out anyone and anything for her personal political agenda? Doubt it. Is the Congressional Black Caucus beginning to regret any previous support of Speaker Pelosi? How does Steny Hoyer feel about Pelosi picking Murtha first for House Majority Leader? How does Murtha feel about his party ignoring him? Like that would matter to Jack Murtha.
This story illuminates the other failures of the Democratic majority in Congress. The Dems continue to claim the midterms were a voter mandate giving them license to torture the American people while they accuse President Bush of doing the same to terrorists. The Dems also claim ‘the American people have spoken’ and given the Democratic party their approval for surrender in Iraq and on the war on terror. Their illustrious candidate for President, John Edwards, refers to the war on terror as a ‘bumper sticker’ slogan. That is because he doesn’t have a clue and like other Dems will pander to the fringe for votes.
Besides Pelosi, other prominent Democratic party members like Feinstein and Boxer want all the illegal immigrants they can fit in California. Not because the illegals yearn to be free, but the money is good in illegal immigration. All at the expense of American citizens and the future of this nation.
Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards all favor surrender, amnesty and any position on any issue that will get them elected. So it makes you wonder why the Congressional Black Caucus ever trusted Pelosi to respond in a manner that supports their goals. Talk about a party of lost sheep. And Harry Reid climbed on board as he saw his political fortunes in last year’s midterms. Rather short-sighted and naive of old Harry, wasn’t it.
The GOP deserved to get their due in the midterms. But only as a throw the bums out in terms of incumbents in which case the only alternative is usually the Democratic challenger. And the Dems thought the American public would buy in to the mandate speech. Sure, that is why the Congressional approval rating sank lower than the President’s all time low after the midterms. One could really look forward to more voter solutions in 2008. And the party pundits should reload their calculators. So far they haven’t understood the public is not happy and party favoritism is fading on both sides.
political hack – a politician who belongs to a small clique that controls a political party for private rather than public ends

Democratic leaders fear that Rep. William J. Jefferson’s indictment yesterday on racketeering and bribery charges, coming exactly one year after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi engineered his ouster from the powerful Ways and Means Committee, could rekindle a smoldering dispute between the speaker and black lawmakers who were once pillars of her power.
