Watch What They Do, Not What They Say
The more things change…Every day we have another prominent Republican speaking out against Bush and Iraqmire. And every time there's another vote in Congress, they all march in lockstep and vote in favor of whatever Bush wants. This is getting old.
These two-faced assholes seem to think they can keep fooling the American people by acting “moderate” in public and then privately voting for everything Bush wants. The scary part is, maybe they can. Maybe our Paris Hilton-obsessed American Idol-addled population doesn’t notice.
Sure it’s nice to have all these tell-all books getting published, with one former Bush henchman after another coming out and telling us what it was like working for those douchebags. And it’s great that Hagel, Specter, Lugar, Voinovich — among others — have publicly criticized the Bush Administration.
But what does it all add up to? A vote to reduce funding for Iraqmire — Defeated. A no-confidence vote against Electrodes Gonzales — Down in flames. Eliminating funding for the vice president’s executive office budget (a logical decision since Cheney is claiming he's above the law because he ISN'T part of the executive branch) — Defeated. Etc.
And now there'll be a vote on whether to close Guantanamo Bay by cutting off funding. Three guesses on how the invertebrates will vote.
We The People spoke out last November. We put the Democrats in charge of the House and Senate because we've had enough of this shit. Democrats are in charge now, more and more Republicans are speaking out against the Bush Administration — and what’ve we got to show for it?
Congress — 535 people, four spines.
