CPT, A Collection of Neville Chamberlain’s

The Al-Jazeera network broadcast a terrorist video showing four members of “Christian Peacemaker Teams” (CPT) who were kidnapped by terrorists in Iraq on Saturday, November 26, 2005. According to the CPT web site, “Christian Peacemaker Teams is a program of Brethren, Quaker and Mennonite Churches (USA and Canada).”

The Swords of Righteousness Brigade claimed responsibility.

Apparently CPT is a peace activist organization that willingly sends its members into harms way for the sake of “violence reduction.” Their website states that their “teams of trained peacemakers work in areas of lethal conflict around the world.” In addition to Iraq, CPT workers are currently “reducing violence” in Colombia, the west bank, and on the U. S. - Mexican border.

After the kidnappings, the CPT group issued a statement on their web page saying in part:

“We are angry because what has happened to our teammates is the result of the actions of the U.S. and U.K. governments due to the illegal attack on Iraq and the continuing occupation and oppression of its people.”

So…these CPT members purposely went to Iraq to bring attention to themselves and their own leftist agenda, to protest the liberation of 26,074,906 people, to protest the removal of a dictator who rivaled Joseph Stalin in his viciousness, to protest the toppling of a regime that sponsored terrorism around the world. The kooks of the CPT willingly went into a combat zone where the terrorists want nothing more than to kill anyone isn’t the right kind of Muslim, and it’s America’s and Britain’s fault?

Let me enlighten you. It’s your own damn fault. You and your fellow anti-war leftists are buckets of cowardly scum. You allow terrorism to expand and advance though your self centered platitudes of blaming America first and foremost. You defend and aid terrorism with your cowardly, self righteous, propaganda.

How dare you claim to represent Christians? A Christian is not a coward. A Christian will defend the helpless and the downtrodden just as we have done and are doing in Iraq.

Your website asks what I suppose is a rhetorical question: “What would happen if Christians devoted the same discipline and self-sacrifice to nonviolent peacemaking that armies devote to war?”

The answer to your stupid question of course is that we would end up in a torture room displayed as hostages on Al-Jazeera.

Potluck? No Thank You

I work at a college where full time faculty have to have a Ph.D. in order to teach. Part time teachers have to have a minimum of a Masters Degree. If you recall, a poll came out recently showing that 70 percent of men and 83 percent of women washed their hands after using a public restroom. Pretty dismal numbers. What I have observed (unscientifically) is that about 98 percent of faculty don’t wash their hands after finishing their business in the restroom. There aren’t many places much dirtier than a college. Hospitals might be dirtier. The irony is that as well educated as the faculty and students are most think nothing of walking out of the restroom with contaminated hands. With what we know, (or what we should know) about the transmission of disease it’s amazing how stupid some highly educated folks can be.

Which is why I don’t participate in office potlucks. I have an aversion to e-coli, hepatitis, and other assorted bacteria and bugs.

Paris - City of Advanced Culture

People walk past as a homeless person takes cover from the cold on a Paris sidewalk November 28, 2005, as six homeless have died in France since the arrival of winter temperatures. French authorities have raised their weather alert in 31 departments and asked for increased vigilance to the homeless in Paris. REUTERS/Franck Prevel

I read the short story above with the related photo at Yahoo News today.

It’s a tragic thing when anyone dies needlessly no matter what the cause. But I can’t help but think about the many Western Europeans I have met who have demonstrated a holier than thou, self righteous, attitude towards America, Americans, and our culture. I was told once by a young woman from France that America breeds a culture of death through ultra conservative, ultra religious Americanism. She also said we are a jingoistic country. She said that in a nation as rich as America, homelessness should not exist.

I responded by asking her to explain and define her description of Americanism, and what led her to believe that Americans are jingoistic. She was not able to explain or define either in a satisfactory way. She just used generalizations and what seemed to be random quotations from the likes of Gabriel García Márquez and Che Guevara. The more I questioned her and asked for explanations, the more flustered she became. I then asked her why she was taking college classes here in America if we are such a backward thinking nation. She wasn’t really able to answer that question in a coherent manner either. I asked her to give me an example of an advanced culture. She immediately pointed to her native France.

What amounts to an insurrection has recently swept through France in the form of violent rioting and arson resulting in murder and large scale destruction. And now, we know that France has homeless people, some of them dying from the cold. I guess France isn’t quite the advanced Utopia that some folks would have us believe.

Lonely Loser

AP Photo/Evan Vucci
Remember the old song – Mr. Lonely? Well, On Saturday, 26 November 2005, Cindy Sheehan was Mrs. Lonely as her book signing event turned out to be a non-event. She addressed a crowd of about 100 people, but even fewer showed up to her book signing. I wonder if Cindy realizes just how insignificant she really is with most Americans.

Dangerous Resolutions

U.S. Representative John Murtha isn’t necessarily a coward, but he may just be something worse. His recently defeated resolution calling for a quick pull out of all U.S. troops from Iraq, is just part of the same old song and dance of liberal Democrats, most of whom I do consider cowardly. The liberals in congress are just gearing up for the 2006 elections, and they need talking points. That’s all. Murtha probably knows that to boogey out of Iraq prematurely would be a huge military blunder. If Murtha doesn’t know that, then he really is as goofy as he sounds.

Cheney recently said in a speech to the American Enterprise Institute that Murtha is “a good man, a Marine, a patriot.” President Bush and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld have recently said similar things about the congressman. But why dance around the real issue? Murtha may indeed be a good man in some respects. He may be a Marine, because once a Marine, always a Marine, just ask one.

But right now, he isn’t acting patriotic. A patriot doesn’t undermine military folks involved in armed conflict. In his speech Vice President Cheney said: “Those who advocate a sudden withdrawal from Iraq should answer a few simple questions,” such as, would the United States be “better off or worse off” with terrorists such as Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, Osama bin Laden, or Ayman al-Zawahiri in control of Iraq? If we "cut and run" (the Democrats hate that phrase by the way), then all of the sacrifice of life, American, British, and Iraqi, will have been a waste. If we set a timetable for withdrawal, as Murtha would have us do, the terrorists would sense the fear motivating that move and would strike at our military folks a little more fiercely just to hurry along the appeasement policy of Murtha and others of his ilk.

Murtha has continued to defend his pusillanimous call to get out of Iraq, claiming he was reflecting sentiment held by most Americans. Sorry Johnny boy, you don’t represent anyone except dunderheads like Ted Kennedy, Jimmy Carter and other likeminded weasels.

And while Murtha himself may not be a coward, his resolution demonstrates an appearance of cowardice, and a lack of resolve. His words bring back memories of Mogadishu.

By continuing to keep this hullabaloo alive, Murtha and his cohorts provide constant attention and focus to the evil terrorists and their evil deeds. So, it can be argued that Murtha and his cronies are providing aid to the enemy by giving them constant media attention to their demands and providing a legitimization of their point of view. How is he legitimizing them? By making American policy appear to be evil, and this provides comfort and aid to the enemy. Murtha doesn’t seem to get it that the terrorists are the evil ones, not President Bush.

Thanksgiving Proclamations

Courtesy of Rocky Mountain Family Council

In November of 1621, the Pilgrims had what is considered to be the first Thanksgiving. On November 29th, 1623, three years after the Pilgrims' arrival and two years after the first Thanksgiving, William Bradford, who was Governor of the Plymouth Colony, made an official proclamation of a day of Thanksgiving:

To all ye Pilgrims:

In as much as the great Father has given us this year an abundant harvest of Indian corn, wheat peas, beans, squashes, and garden vegetable, and has made the forest to abound with game and the sea with fish and clams, and inasmuch as he has protected us ..., has spared us from pestilence and disease, has granted us freedom to worship God according to the dictates of our own conscience;

Now I, your magistrate, do proclaim that all ye Pilgrims, with your wives and ye little ones, do gather at ye meeting house ..., on Thursday, November 29th, of the year of our Lord one thousand six hundred and twenty-three, and the third year since ye Pilgrims landed on Pilgrim Rock, there to listen to ye pastor and render thanksgiving to ye Almighty God for all His blessings.

On October 21st, 1785, John Langdon, who was the Governor of New Hampshire, a signer of the U.S. Constitution as well as a U.S. Senator, made this official Proclamation for a General Thanksgiving to the State of New Hampshire:

The munificent Father of Mercies, and Sovereign Disposer of Events, having been graciously pleased to relieve the United States of America from the Calamities of a long and dangerous war.... preventing Famine from entering our Borders; -- eventually restored to us the blessings of Peace, on Terms advantageous and honourable.

...It therefore becomes our indispensable Duty, not only to acknowledge, in general with the rest of Mankind, our dependence on the supreme Ruler of the Universe, but as a people peculiarly favoured to testify our Gratitude to the Author of all our Mercies, in the most solemn and public manner.

I Do therefore, agree to a Vote of the General Court, appointing Thursday the 24th Day of November next, to be observed and kept as a Day of General Thanksgiving throughout this State ...

On November 8, 1783, John Hancock, the Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and first member of the Continental Congress to sign the Declaration of Independence, issued A Proclamation for a Day of Thanksgiving to celebrate the victorious conclusion of the Revolutionary War:

Whereas... these United States are not only happily rescued from the Danger and Calamities to which they have been so long exposed but their Freedom, Sovereignty and Independence ultimately acknowledged.

And whereas... the Interposition of Divine Providence in our Favor hath been most abundantly and most graciously manifested and the Citizens of these United States have every Reason for Praise and Gratitude to the God of their salvation.

Impresses therefore with an exalted Sense of Blessings by which we are surrounded and of our entire Dependence on that Almighty Being from whose Goodness and Bounty they are derived; I do. .. appoint Thursday the eleventh Day of December next to be religiously observed as a Day of Thanksgiving and Prayer..

On September 25th, 1789, Congress unanimously approved a resolution asking the President to proclaim a National Day of Thanksgiving and on October 3, 1789, while in New York City, President George Washington shared his Thanksgiving Proclamation:

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor...

Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the twenty-sixth day of November next to be devoted by the people of these United States... that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations , and beseech Him to pardon our national and other promote the knowledge and practice of the true religion and virtue...

On October 3, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln issued a formal proclamation, passed by an Act of Congress initiating the first annual National Day of Thanksgiving.

No human counsel hath devised, nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the most high God who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy...

I do, therefore, invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens... [it is] announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations are blessed whose God is the Lord ... It has seemed to me fit and proper that God should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and voice, by the whole American people.

Let's all remember the words of these great men and thank God for His blessings.

How Do You Know?

Theft number 1

According to KLTV 7 in Tyler, Texas, the F.B.I. is investigating a missing shipment of a radioactive material used in the oil and gas industry, antimony-124. Two vials of the material disappeared before the truck transporting it got to Kilgore, Texas from New Mexico.

F.B.I. investigators believe that the radioactive antimony-124 was stolen before the truck arrived at Kilgore. The vials were being transported in a “military style ammo box”, it was not marked, but should have been, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety. All vehicles transporting radioactive material must be marked, as well as all containers holding the material. KLTV 7 reported that the material is also sometimes used for chemo-therapy in humans. Apparently the antimony-124 is not considered a terrorist threat because the quantity involved is small, though it is toxic, can cause skin ulcers and can be lethal if ingested.

Theft number 2

In the Denver area last year, several small tanks of propane gas were stolen from different businesses. You can buy propane in small tanks for use in gas barbecue grills and stoves, from some gas stations, and grocery stores. You bring in an empty tank, and pay for a full one. The thefts made the news in Denver, but it was treated as more of a curiosity or oddity than a potentially dangerous situation. The news media quickly dismissed terrorism as a reason for the thefts.

However, as in the antimony-124 theft, the authorities don’t really know what happened to the propane tanks or who stole them and why.

It strikes me as a little strange when the authorities are so quick to say “We don’t know who is responsible, but it isn’t terrorism.” Is their attitude one of complacency? Or is it a misdirection play? And if it is, why?

If it Walks and Quacks Like a Duck...

The Guardian web page is reporting that “Iran is facing political paralysis as its newly elected president purges government institutions, bringing accusations that he is undertaking a coup d'état.”

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has apparently dismissed “dozens of deputy ministers” as well as state bank presidents, and heads of state insurance organizations. These dismissals come after his removal of four senior ambassadors from office and places into doubt the conclusion of negotiations next week in Vienna over Iran’s nuclear program at a scheduled U.N. meeting.

The Guardian report goes on to say that there is unease and tension in the Iranian parliament over this purge by Ahmadinejad. It seems the Iranian stock market has fallen thirty percent since he took office.

Gee, Iran elected Ahmadinejad, a known terrorist, to the office of president. And now that he’s demonstrating his dictatorial temperament, the Iranians seem to be surprised.

Funny how that works, elect a terrorist, and he continues to act like a terrorist.

Democrats - Party Of The Jackass

Bubba Clinton is a Jackass.

In a news story posted Nov. 16, 2005 on the Jerusalem Post web page, Bill Clinton was quoted as saying that “Saddam is gone. It's a good thing, but I don't agree with what was done…It was a big mistake. The American government made several errors... one of which is how easy it would be to get rid of Saddam and how hard it would be to unite the country.”

Well how do you like that?

The previous President from the out of power party is saying the current administration made a mistake. How is this news? It’s just more hot air from one the biggest windbags of all. Anyone who isn’t aware of Clinton’s feelings on the matter probably can’t read what’s on this blog. Anyone with genuine intellectual honesty will admit that when Clinton was President, he demonstrated a lack of courage in many different areas. Just look at his actions leading up to and during his impeachment.

Bubba talks a lot of hooey.

American soldiers were killed and wounded in Mogadishu, Somalia, and how did Bill Clinton respond? He didn’t. What action did he take? He took no action. How did he retaliate? He did not retaliate. How did he handle the bombing of the U.S. Cole? What did he do? He did nothing when confronted by Muslim terrorists. All he ever did was waste several cruise missiles, at a million dollars a pop, to blow up some empty tents and a few roaches and camels, in the dirt wastelands of Afghanistan.

Bubba seems to show aggressive behavior only to women. He was accused of having established a pattern and practice of sexual assault on women. Remember Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey?

Other fairly recent gems from Democratic gutless wonders are:

“I hate Republicans and everything they stand for.” -Howard Dean, DNC Chairman.

“A zebra does not change its spots.” -Al Gore, Vice Presidential Has Been and Presidential Never Was.

Just more jackassery from the Democrats, party of the jackass.

What ever happened to the manhood of the Democratic party? For all his faults, Harry S Truman was a man. Zell Miller is a man, and since he is, the Democratic party had to drive him out. Zell’s manly demeanor simply made their pansyness all the more obvious.

Even John F. Kennedy once said:
“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”

The Bay of Pigs notwithstanding.

The old axiom rings true, Action Walks & Bullshit Talks.

Though George W. Bush could be and should be doing better, at least after 9/11 he demonstrated his willingness to take action. Just ask the Taliban. Just ask Osama Bin Laden. Just ask Saddam Hussein.

Surprisingly, Bubba hasn’t asked President Bush to pardon Osama or Saddam.

Can We Trust Judge Samuel Alito?

Can we trust Judge Samuel Alito, the President’s Supreme Court nominee? Apparently in 1985, he made a statement that in his opinion, there was no constitutional right to have an abortion.

Strong stuff. Nice stuff for an anti-abortion person to hear. But an Associated Press story today said that when asked about the statement by California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein, the judge told her: “I was an advocate seeking a job, it was a political job and…I'm now a judge, I've been on the circuit court for 15 years and it's very different. I'm not an advocate, I don't give heed to my personal views, what I do is interpret the law.”

The same AP story says that Judge Alito also talked to Democratic Senator Jeff Bingaman from New Mexico, about the abortion statement. “He said it was 20 years ago,” Bingaman reported. Senator Bingaman also said that Alito has respect for the precedent set by the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which established “abortion rights.”

Can you say backpedal?

If the good Judge’s statement to Feinstein is true, there goes my warm fuzzies concerning his nomination. I hope Judge Alito is truly the conservative judge that he was built up to be. I realize that the role and purpose of a judge is indeed to interpret the law, and not be an activist with the law. But that’s not the issue I have with the judge here. Keep in mind, there was nothing wrong with the judge’s statement from 1985. He expressed his opinion. I think he should stick to it and defend it as his. Don’t back away for political reasons.

I get a little concerned anytime anyone tries to dampen strong statements they have made in the past.

Action & Reaction

How would you react if confronted by a person posing a physical threat?

In reality you only have three options. Would you:

A) Try to talk them out of harming you?

B) Pretend that it’s just not happening to you?

C) Defend yourself?

Choice A wouldn’t work. The person threatening you has already decided the action they want to take. They have decided to hurt or kill you.

Choice B wouldn’t work. Again, they have decided for you what’s going to happen to you.

Choice C is your only realistic option, your chances of surviving are much higher than A or B.

Now suppose you’re the leader of a free nation. How would you react if confronted by a terrorist organization threatening to attack your country from within? Your choices are still A, B, or C.

C is still your only realistic option.

Bullies are cowards, as are terrorists.

If you were not able to hear the Veterans Day speech by President Bush today, you should read it at National Review Online.

San Francisco, Stupid Is As Stupid Does

The citizens of San Francisco voted to outlaw and ban all handguns. The ballot measure prohibits the sale and manufacture of handguns and ammunition in the city. It also bans the possession of handguns in the homes and businesses of city residents. The Associated Press reported; “With all precincts reporting early Wednesday, 58 percent of voters backed the proposed gun ban while 42 percent opposed it.” The same news story also said that: “Although law enforcement, security guards and others who require weapons for work are exempt from the measure, current handgun owners would have to surrender their firearms by April.” (Emphasis added)

Incredible as it seems, 58 percent of the population of a large city can be very stupid. But then, we are talking about the Peoples Republic of San Francisco, the city that made the “Twinkie Defense” famous.

Apparently, Washington D.C. and Chicago have also implemented the same type of handgun bans.

It has worked so well for those two cities, hasn’t it?

A few days ago in Metro Denver, a man protected himself and his family with a firearm when a registered sex offender broke into his house. The family was home at the time of the break in. As the burglar was breaking in, the homeowner grabbed his gun and fired at the bad guy, hitting him in the arm. The sex offender ran from the house and was arrested when he was found at another home seeking help. (Colorado law protects citizens from criminal prosecution when using lethal force in self defense.)

Then there was Hurricane Katrina.

In the Algiers Point neighborhood of New Orleans, the neighborhood association had to act as law enforcement and emergency response as city services disappeared and the police force was unable to protect them. A group of ordinary citizens organized armed patrols to protect themselves and their property.

They slept on their porches with loaded shotguns and set up an alarm system with aluminum cans scattered on the sidewalk. Gunshots were heard for days, sometimes very close.

A man who lives in the neighborhood said looters came up and pulled a gun on a group of men from the neighborhood and three of the looters were shot. The man also said he did not fire a gun himself and declined to say who else was involved in the battle. The man is quoted as saying that: “One was shot in the back, the other in the leg, and the third I was told made it a block and a half before he died in the street. I did not go down to see the body…For five days we didn't need FEMA, the Red Cross or the National Guard…The neighborhood took care of itself.”

The F.B.I. reports that a violent crime is committed every 23.1 seconds. A murder occurs roughly every half-hour. There were 16,137 murders and 94,635 rapes in the United States in 2004. These are cold hard facts.

The police can’t be everywhere all the time. And sometimes even when they are around, they won’t help, or, by the time they respond, someone is dead or severely injured. Or raped.

Sometimes your security and survival comes down to you, yourself. It’s amazing that so many people in such a large city as San Francisco can be as stupid and unthinking as to vote away the basic right of self-defense.

Measure H, in San Francisco, if contested in court will probably be ruled as unconstitutional as it violates the second amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

France Continues To Burn

Rioting in France enters its second week. The rioting started Oct. 27, and is apparently spreading through the nation. One of the more horrific incidents is a handicapped woman who was soaked with gasoline and set on fire by ‘rioting youths’. The 56-year-old woman suffered third degree burns to 20% of her body.

Witnesses said a youth poured gasoline over the woman and then threw a Molotov cocktail into the bus she was traveling on.

The youths who are rioting are apparently French Muslims, and North African Immigrants.

The media have cited a few reasons for the rioting and lawlessness.

‘The high unemployment rate is to blame.’

‘Immigrant youths were angered over the deaths of two teenagers — Bouna Traore, age 15, and Zyed Benna, age 17, who were electrocuted in a power substation where they were hiding, thinking that the police were chasing them.’

MSNBC online has reported that:

“Many of the riotous youths are the French-born children of immigrant parents. The unrest has laid bare discontent simmering in suburbs and among immigrant families who feel trapped by poverty, unemployment, and poor education.

France’s Muslim population, estimated at 5 million, is Western Europe’s largest. Immigrants and their children often complain of police harassment and job discrimination.”

So life isn’t that great for those folks. But how does that justify torching a defenseless disabled woman simply because they’ve been out of work? Or because they feel harassed by the police?

Was the woman who was set afire a Muslim? Who owned the hundreds of cars that have been destroyed? Were they Muslim? Are the immigrants destroying their own neighborhoods? How is their own self-destruction improving their lives?

Rest In Peace Jimmy Chambers

World Net Daily ( has reported that Jimmy Chambers died on October 24, 2005. (See my post dated Thursday, October 20, titled: Jimmy Chambers Wants To Live)

Ms. Diana Lynne writes:

“Family members are investigating what they consider to be suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of a nursing home patient at the center of a life and death tug-of-war reminiscent of the Terri Schiavo tragedy.”

Mr. Chambers, 79, died after the tracheotomy tubes that deliver oxygen from a ventilator to a hole in his neck became unhooked. He was a resident at the Anne Maria Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in North Augusta, S.C.

His family was told that he apparently pulled the interlocking tubes apart, but his daughter, Deanna Potter, isn’t buying it.

She told World Net Daily:

“We're having it investigated. We're just incredulous. The last time I saw dad he was blowing me a kiss. I blew him one and he blew one back.”

WND reports that the nursing home administrator Marcy Drewry, has declined comment citing patient confidentiality.

The family was divided over whether or not Mr. Chambers chose to revoke a living will he signed in 1990.

You may want to think twice before signing a living will, or do not resuscitate order. When you’re at death’s door, you may feel differently.

It Can Happen Here

Eight straight days of rioting. Twenty towns are now involved. The police and firefighters are being shot at. Car dealerships and public buses are being burned. Rocks are being thrown at commuter trains, and stopping them. 315 cars have been burned.

The President has appealed to the mobs for calm and restraint.

Is this Watts in the 1960’s? Is it Los Angeles after the Rodney King trial? Is it Toledo just a few weeks ago?

No. It’s suburban Paris in the last week.

I recall when French elitists called Americans ‘cowboys.’ I remember when the French press referred to President Ronald Reagan as the ‘cowboy in charge of the most powerful nation on earth’. I also remember when the elite of Europe slammed America for being violent and deadly.

Well, now we know that civil unrest can happen anywhere and is not exclusive to America. It happens over there too.

Jamey Keaten from the Associated Press reports: “Rather than feeling embraced as full and equal citizens, immigrants and their French-born children complain of police harassment and of being refused jobs, housing and opportunities.” Gee, with riotous behavior, I wonder why?

French lawmaker Philippe de Villiers who has been quoted as saying that he wants to "stop the Islamization of France," told a radio station that the problem is the "failure of a policy of massive and uncontrolled immigration."

Let’s hear that again, the problem is the "failure of a policy of massive and uncontrolled immigration."

Seems like we’ve heard that before here in America. Tom Tancredo, Republican Congressman from Colorado has been demonized for saying similar things.

Well, I believe that Philippe de Villiers is correct, so is Tom Tancredo. With massive, out of control immigration, the type of rioting and violence we see in Paris can happen here too.

Can You Say Obstructionism?

President Bush may be showing signs of repentant behavior. First, he’s started to sound tough on the horrendous border situation. Then, after Harriet Miers “withdrew” her name from consideration, Mr. Bush nominated Judge Samuel A. Alito, Jr. for the SCOTUS.

But, we have déjà vu all over again. Vermont Democrat Senator Patrick Leahy, ranking minority member on the Judiciary Committee, called the nomination "needlessly provocative." Excuse me? Leahy is calling the action of a Republican President provocative? Indeed, the kettle is calling the skillet black.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, Democrat from Nevada, expressed doubt that hearings could be held before the end of the year. When Tom Daschle was Minority Leader, this type of thinking was called obstructionism.

And the Democrats wonder why they are the minority party.

Thanks Debbie Schlussel

I've just been added to Debbie Schlussel's Blogroll. I feel honored to be listed.

Thanks Debbie.
