So Much for Bipartisanship, Democrats Lie Again

For years the Democratic Party and its minions were up in arms about the lack of cooperation from Republicans. This is one of the reasons they so willingly supported the number of threatened filibusters and other obstructive measures thrown by the Democrats. The Democrats vowed that if they regained control this would change and they continued that assertion after the election. Like so many of their other campaign promises, this one will go by the wayside right from the start. Democrats have devised a plan to exclude the Republicans from their [Democrats] early agenda in order to quickly push through legislation and give the appearance of accomplishment. This is their prerogative as the majority but it starkly contrasts their stated position of cooperation and bipartisanship.

As they prepare to take control of Congress this week and face up to campaign pledges to restore bipartisanship and openness, Democrats are planning to largely sideline Republicans from the first burst of lawmaking.

House Democrats intend to pass a raft of popular measures as part of their well-publicized plan for the first 100 hours. They include tightening ethics rules for lawmakers, raising the minimum wage, allowing more research on stem cells and cutting interest rates on student loans.

But instead of allowing Republicans to fully participate in deliberations, as promised after the Democratic victory in the Nov. 7 midterm elections, Democrats now say they will use House rules to prevent the opposition from offering alternative measures, assuring speedy passage of the bills and allowing their party to trumpet early victories.

Pull my finger

This is one in a series of lies the Democrats have told. They promised to fully implement the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission (though I do not agree with all the recommendations) and after winning they backtracked and said they would not be able to do that. They will not be able to implement that which they promised and that which they lambasted President Bush and the Republicans for failing to do. They promised to have full work weeks and now it looks like that idea will be revisited. They met with Iraqi leaders prior to the elections ans assured them we would not leave while telling America they would redeploy (cut and run). I don’t agree with cutting and running but I did not promise America I would do so while promising Iraq I would not.

The Democrats are demonstrating the traits that they portrayed as bad in Republicans and they are flaunting their victory as a mandate to do as they wish regardless of their promises. America, you got what you deserve and the Democrats will stick it to you with one broken promise after another. In two years the economy will be in the tank and we will be the laughing stock of the world. Couple that with millions of ILLEGALS given amnesty and the burden that will place on our economy and national security and we will be in dire straights. One can only hope Bush wields the mighty veto pen and puts constraint on the Democrats.

Fear not though Liberals, George Bush is still President and you will still have him to blame. Wake up America. The time has come to demand term limits for Congress.

    Let me get this straight…Republicans are now whining about a “minority bill of rights” – one that was PROPOSED BY NANCY PELOSI when the GOP shut Dems out of the legislative process…You want the rules changed – the rules you wrote yourselves.

    You people have absolutely no sense of irony or hypocrisy…not to mention no sense of what cracks everyone else up about you.

    Sauce…goose…gander…Eat it.
