Democrat Party Shenanigans

First, Nancy Pelosi has a zinger:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lashed out at Republicans on Thursday, saying they want the Iraq war to drag on and are ignoring the public’s priorities.

“They like this war. They want this war to continue,” Pelosi, D- Calif., told reporters. She expressed frustration over Republicans’ ability to force majority Democrats to yield ground on taxes, spending, energy, war spending and other matters.

Fuck you, Nancy.  If your party had any balls, you’d just all vote to defund the war.  You haven’t, because you wouldn’t get reelected.  Which means you think everyone “likes” the war.

Then, Al Gore does his usual song and dance:

Al Gore savaged the US government’s “obstructing” attitude and urged delegates at the UN conference on climate change to ignore Washington if necessary to pursue the “moral imperative” of a new global regime.

“My country is principally responsible for obstructing progress here in Bali,” the former US vice-president told 2,000 of the 12,000 people attending the conference on Thursday. “[But] over the next two years the United States is going to be somewhere it is not now.”

Fuck you, Al.  You’ve been preaching this bullshit alarmism for years, without any scientific proof to back it up.  Your consensus isn’t so universal.

And finally, the Dems continue to claim that redistribution of wealth is the way to prosperity:

Democratic presidential hopefuls called for higher taxes on the highest-paid Americans and on big corporations Thursday and agreed in an unusually cordial debate that any thought of balancing the federal budget would have to wait.

“We’re not going to be able to dig ourselves out” of Bush-era deficits in the next year or two, said Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, one of six Democratic rivals sharing a stage for the final time before Iowa’s leadoff Jan. 3 caucuses.

Asked about the importance of eliminating deficits, Democrats responded by criticizing President Bush’s economic policies, including some of his tax cuts.

“I want to keep the middle class tax cuts” that Congress passed during President Bush’s tenure, said Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York. But she said she favors raising taxes for the wealthiest.

“We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.”  That’s the Democrat party.

I just can’t wait for the Democrats to get the Presidency in ’08.  It’s going to be so much fun it should be illegal.

  • They have this mindset from the last century that basically says I can say anything I want and get away with it because no news person or media will dare confront me with it which is true in the traditional institution. However, the Internet is allowing people to put a spotlight on their subterfuge.

    For example, Al Gore lacks the political courage to actually make statements like this in winter in the United States. If Al Gore was anywhere in the United States making his global warming announcement in the middle of winter, he knows he would be laughed off the stage. He always needs to have a warm background for his theatrical announcements. Will the mainstream media call him on this practice? Of course not.

    I like this “fuck you” aggressive attitude, David. You should write like this more often.
