Spector Defects: Where Do I Send My Thank You Note?

Senator Arlen Spector, in a laughably transparent move to keep his job at the Senate, defected to the democrat party. But that’s not news. We all knew he was “one of those” long before he came out of the closet. The nerve pinching moment, however, was when a celebratory Nancy Pelosi thought it her duty to give the republican party some advice.

“I say to Republicans in America, take back your party,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told reporters. “The party of protecting the environment, the party of individual rights, the party of fairness.”

True to democrat form, Pelosi exercises the Say It Enough Times and They’ll Believe It tactic. But, in her defense, she got it half right. Republicans should take their party back. And while they are at it, they might want to retrieve their spines.

Once upon a time, the republican party was the party of individual rights. But the party of protecting the environment? Say it isn’t so. I guess I’m just too young to remember any granola-munching, solar panel brandishing, whack job republican environmentalists. My earliest recollection of a republican stand on the emerging environmental movement was President Reagan when he said, “A tree’s a tree. How many more do you need to look at?” That pretty much settled the matter for me.

Pelosi also contends that the republican party used to be the party of fairness. I’m not sure where she’s going with this one. A democrat’s definition of fair is not the same as a republican’s definition, or the rest of the free world’s, for that matter.

Fairness, to a democrat, is castigating corporate CEO’s for buying and flying private jets with “taxpayer dollars” while Air Force one joy rides around the Statue of Liberty burning fuel bought with taxpayer dollars. I won’t even go into the questionable fairness of not giving the people of lower Manhattan a heads-up that a 747 would be doing a creepy 9/11ish low-level fly-by in the middle of the afternoon.

To a democrat, fairness only comes into play as it applies to those groups they can exploit for a vote such as the gay community, terrorists, prison inmates, the poor, and angry feminists. For Christians, conservatives, white males, women who choose not to abort their unborn, gun owners, and people who actually earn their money, the term fairness is modified by adding the prefix un- and dropping the suffix -ness.

Pelosi is working the spin that republicans used to stand for the very things democrats are working toward. In doing this she has to rewrite history and create myths for those who actually think she knows what she’s talking about. Republicans would do well to set the record straight. But that would require a spine…

Continuing with her Say It Enough Times and They’ll Think I Really Mean It tactic, Pelosi iced the cake by saying, “Our country needs a strong Republican Party”.

Now, I’m not dumb enough to think she really wants a strong republican party, but if we can get more psuedo-republicans to come out of the socialist closet and slither over to the dark side, the old gal might just get her wish.


Limbaugh Bad For GOP Job Security

No Job Security for GOPs Who Listen to Rush – New York Post

Pres. Obama took the gloves off early, well, after he closed Gitmo and opened the floodgates of world-wide, US taxpayer funded abortion.

“You can’t just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done,” he told top GOP leaders,

Translation: You can’t listen to Rush Limbaugh and not expect to find a horse’s head in your bed.

This was his segue to the $1 trillion stimulus plan he wanted to “discuss” with Republicans. His efforts to promote unity never fail to impress.

Cheney Invites Hillary To Next Hunting Trip

Oh, this is rich. Hillary Rants Link

Hillary is screeching about Cheney’s supposed cover up concerning his hunting accident. The woman is deliriously insane.

A tendency of this administration — from the top all the way to the bottom — is to withhold information … to refuse to be forthcoming about information that is of significance and relevance to the jobs that all of you do, and the interests of the American people,” Clinton said.

First of all, how is Cheney’s silence concerning the hunting mishap relevant or significant to the jobs we all do? His shooting Mr. Whittington in no way affected me. When Bill and Hillary tried to turn this country into a socialist state, now that affected me.

True to form, Hillary is using the misery of another to her advantage. No wonder even the democrats are starting to circulate rumors of her being unlikeable. Could it be that they are finally catching on to what the rest of us thought was patently obvious?

Secondly, the Clinton’s took ‘not being forthcoming’ and made it an art form. Instead of taking the oath of office, Clinton should have just saved us all a lot of trouble and taken the Fifth from the get go.

But wait, she goes on:

The refusal of this administration to level with the American people on matters large and small is very disturbing, because it goes counter to the way our constitutional democracy … is supposed to work.”

It would be redundant to say Mrs. Clinton is obtuse. Cheney didn’t owe the American people jack, least of all Hillary and her congressional cronies. He had just been the cause of a horrible accident. He didn’t get immediately on the phone to Judy Woodruff because he was probably horrified and in shock. But I’ll be fair to the old gal. I’m sure if she ‘accidentally’ shot Bill, horrified or not (my money is on ‘not’), she’d be on the phone to Senator Kennedy as fast as you can say, “Who’s your lawyer?”

But Hillary wasn’t pontificating alone. Harry Reid was salivating on the sidelines just waiting for his chance to turn the situation into a Bush administration conspiracy.

I think the reason it took the vice president a day to talk about this is part of the secretive nature of this administration,” the top Senate Democrat said. “They keep things pretty close to the chest.”

I’m sure it would never cross Clinton or Reid’s mind, but it is quite possible Cheney didn’t alert the media immediately because he wanted to be respectful of Whittington’s family. But the concept of respect is ignored by the democrats when there is seething to be done. What most would consider common courtesy Reid and Clinton call secretive. But the cover ups perpetrated by the Clinton Administration somehow fell under Executive Priviledge.

“I think it’s time the American people heard from the vice president, in a real meeting just like we’re having here,” said Reid, who called the George W. Bush presidency “the most secretive administration in modern history.”

This begs the question, why do we have to hear from Cheney at all on this? Does anyone, other than a raging democrat, actually think Dick Cheney led his friend of 30 years into the woods and purposely put buckshot into him? The liberals just want a public flogging of Cheney and they won’t shut up until they get it.

Reid outdid himself in the ignorance department with this parting shot:

“In the last many, many decades, there’s no administration more secretive than this,” he said.

He must have been out of the country between 1992 and 2000.

I rather like Cheney’s secretive nature. Not only does it make the liberals squirm, which is fun to watch, but it keeps this country safe. So, if the Vice President wants to take Hillary out hunting I’ll give him three days to tell us how it went.
