Republicans or Democrats…Who is to Blame?

I decided to actually watch CNN tonight to hear what all the pundits had to say about the bailout failing to pass.  Let’s just say my head hurts now.  Before I even get into the Dems and Repubs, it’s amazing to me that we only hear one side of this argument.  Everything on the news is how the bailout just has to be passed and it was a major mistake not to pass it.  What about the other side?  

I even heard these morons say that yes the bailout is horrible but we just have to pass it.  We do?  Can’t we pass something else?  Don’t we have the power to rewrite bills or make new bills that may work better?  I seem to remember reading that in Government Class.  CNN completely ignored the other side of the argument in all their newscasts tonight.   It’s like I’m listening to the state run news network just repeating the talking points handed to them by the administration…strange feeling.  This is the United States of America, right?

Ok, now on to Congress…Now let me see, I’ll start with the Repubs blaming Pelosi’s speech (her Speech!) for the bill not passing. Seriously? 

  • Did your feelings get hurt?  How old are you idiots? 
  • Just once, just once, I would love to hear the Republicans take responsibility for their actions.  Guys you failed to get the votes to pass this bill.  End of story. 
  • They BLAMED THE SPEECH!  They continue to just amaze me.

Ok now I’m going to rip the Dems…so any Democrats out there who can’t take it then you better look away.

  • Pelosi why do you still have a job?  Every day that you wake up do you look in the mirror and just ask yourself if you can screw up as bad as you did the day before?
  • Did the Dems blame the Repubs for not getting enough votes?  They said that they got their fair share and the Republicans didn’t get theirs.  Are your legs broken?  Get off your asses and go get more votes if you believe in this thing so much.  WTF?  That’s the weakest argument I’ve ever heard…oh wait.  They blamed THE SPEECH!

So CNN went on to say that the house Republicans who voted against the bill were putting their re-elections ahead of the country.  But, then they went on to say that 90% of the calls into those same Repubs offices have been against the bailout.  Don’t they work for those people?  Aren’t they supposed to represent them?  I’m so sick of this crap about putting the country ahead of everything else…this is not the Soviet Union!  You are free to have differing views here in this country.  In fact, it’s healthy and natural. 

The majority of American people do not support this bill and the congress who represents them voted it down. So what’s the problem?  If it’s so important then explain it to the people of this country and stop trying to scare them into supporting it.  I mean, I know that’s Bush’s only motivational tactic but someone in congress should be able to do something.  How about those two idiots running for President?  Maybe they could explain it to the American people.  I’m pretty sure that’s how this whole thing called government was supposed to work.

And does anyone, anyone have a problem with the Democrats in Congress lining up behind President Bush on this? 

I know this post is long but I got one more thing to say.  Where is Dick Cheney?  Where do you think his money is?  Dubai?

Random Sunday Notes

Ok, I am just going to throw out some random crap and hope something sticks.

Want some free scientific pics?  I’m sure some people are into this.

Check out the Daily Darfur.  In case you forgot how bad it is over there and how great you have it.  Anyone follow up with LeBron on this?

A horrible day in Iraq.  How much longer are we in this fight?

Cindy Sheehan throws the smack down on Pelosi.   What will Pelosi do?

How much money does your candidate have?  Why does the AP only report these three?  Ron Paul has as much as McCain…but no mention? 

And finally, tatoos and jobs.   How is this a shock?  Visible tatoos hinder your job chances…wow really?  Duh.  Facial hair can keep you from getting a job in some fields.  If you want to tat up that’s fine…but it comes with consequences. 

Cheney and Pelosi going at it.

These two idiots should get married.  Read about their soap opera.

Cheney:

“I think if we were to do what Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Murtha are suggesting, all we will do is validate the al-Qaida strategy,” the vice president told ABC News. “The al-Qaida strategy is to break the will of the American people … try to persuade us to throw in the towel and come home, and then they win because we quit.”

Mr. Positive. Mr. Scary.  Is this guy really relevant to anyone anymore besides Bush?  Pssst….we are fighting much more than al-Qaida in Iraq!  well, we aren’t exactly fighting them, they are fighting each other and we are kind of in the way.

Here is Pelosi with a strong comeback:

I hope the president will repudiate and distance himself from the vice president’s remarks,” Pelosi said. She said she tried to complain about Cheney to President Bush but could not reach him.

“You cannot say as the president of the United States, ‘I welcome disagreement in a time of war,’ and then have the vice president of the United States go out of the country and mischaracterize a position of the speaker of the House and in a manner that says that person in that position of authority is acting against the national security of our country,” the speaker said.

Blah, Blah, Blah.  Just call Cheney an idiot and just say he’s trying to scare people.  The above type of statement gets you a lot of yawning.   I don’t think Cheney is going to respond  (I picture him screaming like that midget on the Burger King Commercials) “What did she say about me?”  It would be great if she said something of substance to make him respond this way….but

The article goes on to list more of Pelosi’s comments.

Pelosi, at a news conference in San Francisco, said Cheney’s criticism of Democrats was “beneath the dignity of the debate we’re engaged in and a disservice to our men and women in uniform, whom we all support.”

“And you know what I’m going to do? I’m going to call the president and tell him I disapprove of what the vice president said,” Pelosi said. “It has no place in our debate.” Bush had previously urged her to call him when a member of his administration stepped over the line by questioning Democrats’ patriotism, she said.

 Uh…I “dignity of the debate”?  What the hell does that mean?  When people are dying everyday…the hell with a “diginity of debate” just get something done you morons.  Or you know, go place your phone call….that’ll show him. 

You both are huge failures and should resign immediately.
