Common Sense + Washington Post ??

Think not that this Drilling ban controversy will go away by wishing it to. That is what Tim Walberg of Michigan’s 7th District, seems to be saying by posting the link below. Tim has been doing all he could and can from the beginning to the present. Tim’s latest blog points out that even the liberal Washington Post is getting upset with the Pelosi Reid tag team for not even allowing debate let alone votes on Energy bills. Below is a link to Tim’s Blog.
How long they think they can get away with this charade is equal to how gullible (read stupid) they think the American people are. It appears that they think they can do nothing forever.

Pelosi has even stopped all appropriation bills according to the article for fear that energy amendments may be added forcing a vote on the bill. As the article quotes. “The result threatens to be the first time since at least 1950 that lawmakers will go home for the August recess without either chamber having passed a single appropriations bill.”

Another telling and obvious question is raised by the Washington Post article.
“When they took the majority, House Democrats proclaimed that “bills should generally come to the floor under a procedure that allows open, full and fair debate consisting of a full amendment process that grants the Minority the right to offer its alternatives.” Why not on drilling?”

The final sentence says it all. Sums up what all this hub bub has been about.
“If drilling opponents really have the better of this argument, why are they so worried about letting it come to a vote.”

From me I think Pelosi and Harry “blowing in the wind” Reid should start looking for another day job.

Can she be removed by her own party as speaker? She is doing THEM a dis-service as well as the rest of the country

Seems to me, the Democrats may wind up losing her anyhow if she continues to stall. This is all fuel for Republican fires burning this November I think.

She surely can be removed, but she won't be. Maybe after the election. But I doubt it. She is the face of the radical left.

I agree with you about how she can fuel our fires in Nov. The more the radical left is front and center (remember the convention snd 1968), the more the independents will come to the common sense policies of the Republicans and the stable solid leadership of John McCain.

I can't stop the Truman campaign and the man from popping into my head. Victory through the personal intimate townhall formats vs the King and his Court at Madison Square Garden approach. The media dismissing Truman.

We have a local Muskegon County Clerk race which echoes that very thing in my mind. Elections in this area are all about parades I think. I've been to about 5 already with the incumbant Karen Buie. Her apponent Nancy Waters has a lot of money personaly. She has her own float in the parade. She passes by sitting up there slowly nodding to the people as she passes, the people are silent.

Karen Buie runs back and forth from one side to the other shaking hands and giving out hugs. People shout her name and wish her luck.

The public is fed up with partisan politics and nothing getting done. And especially being treated in a condescending way. We have a chance if we can continually force the issues in the House and Senate as Boehner and McConnell are doing , to show the American people that we are the party of action. We know how to actually get things done. We have "get it done" ideas.

Sorry for the long reply, just got back from Detroit watching the Tigers win. It was great. Seats were great, Next to the foul pole 7 rows up. Felt like I could shake Maglio's hand. A free lunch too. I'm pumped. lol

Thanks for the comment.
