This, however, is symptomatic of the problem of handing power to the current Leftist-dominated Democrat party, which has a two-pronged approach to governing the nation: do everything possible to win elections by satisfying certain various voting blocs no matter how much their policies threaten the safety and security of the American people, and move as far to the left as possible without revealing their total dedication to the coercive policies of Karl Marx.
To put it simply, this party is wholly owned by the unhinged George Soros left, the teachers’ unions, big labor bosses, trial lawyers, and assorted pie-in-the-sky liberals shaking in their boots over the imagined threat that Earth and everyone on it is in the process being barbecued by Mother Nature.
In an effort to mollify the rabid anti-war left that wants us out of Iraq now -- no matter what the dreadful consequences for world peace and an oil-dependent world economy -- the Democrat Congressional leadership has sought to have it both ways: make loud noises about ending the war, while throwing up their hands and telling all those nuts in San Francisco that they are at the mercy of big, bad George Bush who is using his massive 24 percent popularity to tie their hands and frustrate their efforts to cut and run.
I won’t argue that the Republicans didn’t deserve to have their ears pinned back in 2006, but who knew that in getting rid of one crew of Washington insiders the nation was put in the hands of the gang that can’t shoot straight, or even figure out which end of the gun to point.
