Wimpiness Rules the House
First, in a vicious stomach-punch to everyone who voted the GOP to a majority in the House of Representatives, GOP "moderates" removed the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge drilling provision from a budget cutting bill. Then, after that, in a disgusting show of spinelessness, they scuttled a vote on the entire budget cutting bill! "Moderates" spparently GOP "moderates," said that we conservatives were "cutting too much" from social programs. Interestingly enough, some of these social programs, Food Stamps leaps to mind, advertise for people to use them because the entire allotment of money is not being used. But, you see, if we cut out the unused money, according to these "moderates," we are starving families.
"Congressman Blount, may I suggest this: Put those jelly-spined disloyal hacks on the spot! Let their constituents see them as the wimps that they are! Bring it up for the vote and let the chips fall where they may. Let them go home to their voters and explain why they poked their constituents in the eye."
Tom DeLayís temporary replacement as majority leader, Congressman Roy Blount of Missouri, said that the GOP was short a "handful" of votes needed to pass the measure. Congressman Blount, may I suggest this: Put those jelly-spined disloyal hacks on the spot! Let their constituents see them as the wimps that they are! Bring it up for the vote and let the chips fall where they may. Let them go home to their voters and explain why they poked their constituents in the eye. None of these budget cuts are going to starve anyone, or leave someone homeless, or any of the dire baloney that the extreme leftists whine.
Here is someone who has to be ejected from office: Rep. Wayne Gilchrest, R-Md. Apparently, he helped organize the resistance to ANWR drilling that unified the GOP moderates in challenging the leadership. To quote this person: "One thread that held us together on this was ANWR. We knew if we could hold together on ANWR all these other provisions would be subject to much closer scrutiny." He was looking to thwart the will of the people. He deserves to be unseated from Congress.
"Itís one thing to punch the American people in the face over ANWR. Those who did this to us must be outed -- so that we can make sure that they are ousted from the Congress."
I am angry right now, and I am going to try calm down a bit before I suggest a course of action. Perhaps Hastert and Blount can whip these disloyal congresspersons into line. Itís one thing to punch the American people in the face over ANWR. Those who did this to us must be outed -- so that we can make sure that they are ousted from the Congress. These "moderates" betrayed the Constitution by compromising our national security over a few Caribou, which, if the other Alaskan drilling is an example, will benefit from the drilling in the 0.1% of ANWR that would be opened up. Will these same moderates, these wimps, these sycophants of the extreme Left, now try to add even more frivolous spending to programs that are in and of themselves Constitutionally questionable, in a ribald vote-purchasing attempt?
If so, then cut them loose from the GOP. If the Democrats can treat any pro-life member of their party as anathema, and can feel no guilt about using racial slurs against minorities who are not as extreme leftists as they are, we can surely insist that, at least in fiscal and national security matters, our elected officials dance with who brought them. Otherwise, there will be no palpable difference if we lose both houses of the Congress in 2006. If the GOP acts like the Democrats, then there is no reason for us to vote GOP.
12:15PM: Rush Limbaugh gives these traitors an on-air piece of his mind! He gives Michelle Malkin the credit she so richly deserves; Michelle is now the undisputed source of hard facts and excellent research for Conservatives.
