Majority Dems Bow To Bush’s Will AGAIN!!!

Posted in Main Blog (All Posts) on August 5th, 2007 9:05 am by HL

Democrats allow Bush’s Illegal spying on US citizens to continue….


Democrats’ responsibility for Bush radicalism

Salon

Examine virtually every Bush scandal and it increasingly bears the mark not merely of Democratic capitulation, but Democratic participation. In August of 2006, the Supreme Court finally asserted the first real limit on Bush’s radical executive power theories in Hamdan, only for Congress, months later, to completely eviscerate those minimal limits — and then go far beyond — by enacting the grotesque Military Commissions Act with the support of substantial numbers of Democrats. What began as a covert and illegal Bush interrogation and detention program became the officially sanctioned, bipartisan policy of the United States….

And now Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, with revealing symbolism, cancel their scheduled appearances this morning at Yearly Kos because George Bush ordered them to remain in Washington in order to re-write and expand FISA — a law which he has repeatedly refused to allow to be revised for years and which he has openly and proudly violated. Congressional Democrats know virtually nothing about how the Bush administration has been eavesdropping on our conversations because the administration refused to tell them and they passively accepted this state of affairs.

The intense rush to amend this legislation means that most of them have no idea what they are actually enacting — even less of an idea than they typically have.

Here is a comment on the whole debacle that I like from Blondesense

“The chickens**t Democrats voted to continue sucking Bush! Because they didn’t want blamed if another “attack” happened in this [country] by them bad guys (Cheney and friends) they passed his Hitlerian Spy Bill.

It says that the real terrorists in America are Americans who oppose Bush.
Tell your piece of S**t Representative in D.C. that if you wanted this kind of ass-kissing subservience, you’d have voted Republican.

And I’m sick and tired of hearing Kos and Atrios and Amato telling us to “be nice” when you write or call the chisckens**t Democrats because it works better to be nice! NOT! The Democrats that think we’re being nasty are rationalizing for their own cowardice and capitulation.

At least we KNOW Bush is a prick. Now we know these vermin are just as bad as any Republican.

Let’s start calling them (Democrats) what they are; the equivalent of Ronnie’s a**holes.

To me they are now and forever, Democrats for Bush!
Pricks, Bastards, a$$holes, dipsh**s, traitors….just like Republicans.

Looks like Rove got his ONE PARTY NATION, doesn’t it? Tell your representative piece of shit that. See how they answer!!!”

HLs Take
Well…what can I say Blondesense says it all, just like I have been for years


Hilary Clinton Laughed At, Booed at Blogger Convention

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on August 5th, 2007 8:46 am by HL

7 of the 8 Democratic candidates for President spoke at the Yearly Kos convention yesterday in Chicago. In the debate style setting all Candidates except Joe Biden were present. During the forum John Edwards, and Barack Obama spoke of no longer accepting donations from Washington DC lobbyists. Hilary dodged the issue until later when she was asked point blank if she would continue to accept lobbyist money, her answer: ‘Yes I will continue to accept lobbyist money because they represent real people. At that point the audience of close to 1500 began to boo, hiss and laugh at Ms. Clinton.

Nonetheless, the bloggers booed and hissed when Clinton insisted a moment later that nobody would believe that she could be influenced by lobbyists’ money. So would she continue to accept those donations?

“Yes, I will,” she said, arguing that plenty of lobbyists represent good causes. “They represent nurses, they represent social workers, they represent, yes, they represent corporations that employ a lot of people.”

Obama rejected that argument, saying Clinton should know better because special interest money helped sink her health care package in 1993. The crowd cheered wildly….

Again and again, Edwards took swipes at Clinton. On terrorism, he said: “I don’t believe we’re safer. I don’t agree with Sen. Clinton on that.” In a previous debate, Clinton had said the country had been made safer.

Clinton explained Saturday that while post-9/11 reforms have improved the nation’s safety, the country is not as safe under President Bush as it should be. “I listened carefully to John. I think we have a vigorous agreement,” she said, coldly.

Heres another Hilary quote on the same story from Huffington Post.

Senator Clinton tried to clarify her statement by asking the audience to look at her history. “I don’t think that based on my 35 years fighting for what I believe in, that anybody thinks I’m going to be influenced by a lobbyist.”

HLs Take
Yes they will Hillary, (or should I call you Ms. AIPAC) yes they will. Another reason why Dennis Kucinich is the only real Democratic candidate for President. I didn’t get a chance to attend the convention in Chicago because unlike Daily Kos, I am not able to charge $9000 for one weeks advertisements, and am not rich like Kos. Funny how Hilary buys those 9 grand ads on his site, and despite the fact that they continue to slam her. As my good friend Bartcop pointed out. ‘Funny how the two biggest liberal blogs on the Internet are owned by former Republicans’. Kos was a member of the Reagan Youth, he was also in the military and according to one rumor I read may have been in the CIA. The other big blog Huffington Post is owned by Ariana Huffington, who used to be a member of the right wing Republican noise machine. Her husband was some sort of Republican congressman, until she divorced him when she found out he was gay. (what a surprise a closeted gay Republican) I consider both of these blogs to be “mainstream” or moderate. Yes they trumpet democratic causes but they always seem to mute there criticism
of the Dems whenever they do something like bow to Republican will even though they have a majority in congress. If you want a real blog for liberals, stick to people like Bart, and of course your old pal HL
