Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid doth Protest Too Much... and, like Al Gore in the summer of 2000, they take themselves a tad TOO SERIOUSLY.
Yes, Mr. Vice President (Gore), your 2000 presidential campaign DOES mean the difference between war and peace; between keeping the nation on track for BUDGET SURPLUSES vs right-wing "rob the peons, loot the budget and back-door tax plunder (printing money, tax cuts for billionaires); between health care for millions of children, and yet another ghoulish Right-Wing attack on the Christian virtues of defending "THE LEAST AMONG US"... All those were reasons why your campaign SHOULD HAVE GONE AGAINST THE RECORD of Texas Governor George W. Bush, instead of pretending you were all "DIGNIFIED" and above-the-fray with your imperial AF-2 jet and your "moral values" VP nominee, Joe "economic hit-man from the insurance, credit, finance, pharmaceutical, military, and AIPAC industries" Lieberman.
TODAY, JOE LIEBERMAN's TREACHEROUS AGENDA from the 2000 campaign - PROMISING Democratic voters "I WILL FIGHT FOR YOUR VOTES!" even as he put more effort into his Connecticut senate re-election campaign than he put in to the Gore-Lieberman presidential campaign - is now THE TEMPLATE for the DEMOCRAT PARTY inside the Beltway in Washington DC.
NANCY PELOSI and HARRY REID have MADE IT OFFICIAL: NOTHING that George W. Bush or Dick Cheney has done, can do, will do, WARRANTS IMPEACHMENT.
NOTE to Harry and Nancy: YOU TAKE YOURSELVES TOO SERIOUSLY! WE ALL UNDERSTAND that an IMPEACHMENT in Congress WILL NOT RESULT in a CONVICTION in the Senate, given the Republicans 49 vote discipline.
ALL an IMPEACHMENT in Congress would be is an EFFECTIVE CENSURE of the Bush White House, and a thorough AIRING of their dirty laundry.
But NANCY PELOSI has decided to ROB AMERICAN CITIZENS of even this SYMBOLIC oversight, of this CONSTITUTIONAL EXAMPLE that THE PRESIDENT IS AS RESPONSIBLE FOR FOLLOWING THE LAWS of America as average American citizens are.
In this audio clip,
Harry Reid says Impeachment would be "A WASTE OF TIME" and that "IMPEACHMENT WOULD BE A VERY FOOLISH IDEA."
Like Al Gore in 2000, President Clinton in the Monica affair, John Kerry with his 'deer-caught-in-headlights' campaign of 2004, and the Democrats on the eve of the IRAQ WAR resolution, it is HARRY REID and NANCY PELOSI WHO LOOK FOOLISH.
They have GIVEN THIS PRESIDENT CARTE-BLANCHE TO IGNORE the US Constitution, and to START A WAR AGAINST IRAN.
They have told American citizens, "YES, THE PRESIDENT IS ABOVE THE LAW, BEYOND THE CONSTITUTION."
They have GIVEN REPUBLICANS MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF PR, in REFUSING to AIR OUT Republican dirty-laundry, the Bush administration's serial crimes and lies to Congress...
They have ABANDONED voters ROBBED OF THEIR VOTES by the Bush-Republican Party.
Mr. Reid, YOU ARE A FOOLISH OLD MAN. The Only reason your are Senate Leader is NOT because of your "LEADERSHIP" abilities - quite the opposite, your fellow Democrat sentors choose you precisely because YOU WOULDN'T TELL THEM WHAT TO DO - the "get along, go along" guy from the gambling state and "Sin City," when America actually NEEDS a fierce and determined leader.
And Nancy Pelosi: do you think YOUR GRANDCHILDREN are IMMUNE from the consequences of the DICTATORIAL POWERS you have just bestowed on the Bush-Cheney White House?
