The New and Improved Swamp List

Posted: Sep 10, 2008 9:04 AM
Think the Democrats are the party of honest, open, ethical government? Wrong. I’ve worked with these guys (actually, against them) for longer than I care to admit, and let me tell you: nothing has changed but their talking points. The Republican Leader office has compiled a great resource, titled “The Swamp List” highlighting their dirty tricks, and they’re actually in print. But it’s not enough to simply call them out on their hypocrisy and wrong doing – we need to take a page from their playbook and make sure their leadership is weeding out these members. Call on Nancy Pelosi to fire Charlie Rangel!
