Quit lying to yourselves, your readers, and the country, and we might win more elections.
And that goes for you, too, Dean Barnett, who had the nerve to tell us AFTER the election that “In the closing weeks of the campaign season, I felt like I was a lawyer who had a bad client while writing this blog. ” I guess Dean was just following Hugh’s lead, as Hugh stated that the electoral loss created “a wonderful day for new media, especially talk radio. For two years we have had to defend the Congressional gang that couldn’t shoot straight.”
Had you all spent the last four years admonishing the GOP when they deserved it, we wouldn’t have Speaker Pelosi or Chairman Reid. If you hadn’t spent the days after the Foley revelations wondering how the media and Democrats had wronged us, we might have won a seat or two. You acted like party hacks- you were party hacks- and now there isn’t much left of the party. So much for the intellectual honesty of the blogosphere and the new media. It’s Karl Rove with a keyboard.
In short, fat, drugged, and stupid is no way to go through life- ask Limbaugh, who also joined you in a few years of bullshit.
In other news, the GOP has finally decided to stand up to this administration because they are angry about
the utter and complete betrayal of all the party’s principles over the past 6 years the timing of the Rumsfeld dismissal:
Donald Rumsfeld’s abrupt resignation from the Pentagon the day after Republicans lost both chambers of Congress has infuriated some GOP officials on and off Capitol Hill.
Members and staff still reeling from Tuesday’s rout are furious about the administration’s decision to dump the controversial defense secretary one day after their historic loss, they said in a series of interviews about the election results.
President Bush announced Rumsfeld’s resignation on Wednesday and named Bob Gates, a former CIA chief and president of Texas A&M University, as his replacement.
“The White House said keeping the majority was a priority, but they failed to do the one thing that could have made a difference,” one House GOP leadership aide said Thursday. “For them to toss Rumsfeld one day after the election was a slap in the face to everyone who worked hard to protect the majority.”
They are upset he was not dismissed prior to the elections, because then they might have saved some seats. Not, as they should be, upset because he should have been dismissed months/years ago for rank incompetence.
It is still all about the power to these guys- not doing the right thing, not the guys bleeding in Iraq. We need to be out of power for a while.
