Democrats to Drivers (Bus Riders, Truckers, etc): Drop Dead
A most extraordinary exchange occurred yesterday in the august halls (thought it was still July) of the United States Senate. (Hat tip to Hugh Hewitt, who played this on his show today.)
It shows the Democrat in his natural environment: Complete disdain for working Americans, and utter indifference to their problems... but slavishly doting upon the various interlocking special interests that prop up the Democratic Party, like creeping vines holding a crumbling facade in precarious balance.
Just take a look-see:
Sen. Ken Salazar's (D-CO, 85%) message is stark: There is no gasoline price level, no matter how dear, beyond which Democrats will actually support drilling for more domestic oil. None. It could go to $100 a gallon, and they would still fold their arms and, like Khrushchev at the U.N., bark "Nyet!
Current projections from the "pundants" (as President George W. Bush calls them) are that Republicans will be slaughtered in November. Democrats are still talking about a "filibuster-proof majority" in the Senate, or even "veto-proof" majorities in one or both houses.
I say that's nonsense: If we can focus like a laser beam on issues like energy, taxes, the economy, jobs, winning the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, reforming immigration (including legal immigration), and confirming judges who won't rewrite the Constitution to fit the current fashion trend... then I say we can reduce the loses to negligible -- and maybe even nab a net seat in the Senate, if we can hold our own and pick off Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA, 80%). So far, the GOP is running a terrific campaign for the congressional races, and John S. McCain is running a pretty good campaign for president (still room for improvement there).
It's time, time for conservatives to come back and put country ahead of their own power within the party; it's time to come together, fight to take back Congress and retain la Casa Blanca -- then all Republicans must make reparations for their complete meltdown from 2004-2006, when they became as corrupt as the Democrats.
A good start would be for the GOP, either overtly or covertly, to support some other candidate other than incrumbent Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK, 64% -- poster-boy for the corruption of the flesh of swine) in the Alaska primary later this month.

» ガソリン値上がりで庶民の苦労など興味がない米民主党 from In the Strawberry Field
アメリカの議会は本日が最後で夏休みに入るが、議会はエネルギー法案について決議を出すどころか、民主党のナンシー・ペロシ議長が投票に持って行くのを拒否したため、共和党の国内の現油田発掘を提案するエネルギー法案は投票されないまま夏休み後に持ち越されることとなった。 ところが、共和党の下院議員達は、ガソリンの値上がりで苦しんでいる有権者を尻目に解決策も決議せずに自分たちだけ長期の夏休みにはいるなど言語同断と国会議事堂に居座り議論を続けた。 これに腹をたてた民主党のペロシ議長は、議事堂の電源を切り、議事堂の扉... [Read More]

I completely agree.

The tide is shifting. People do not like self-appointed messiahs. BHO's ego is now receding at a significant fraction of c, and the democrats have literally bought into the bizarre position that we need to suffer, even in the face of plenty, because it is for our own good.
The ridiculous stances they took on the war, taxes, ballot security reform, and, now, energy, is reaching a critical mass of stupidity. Glomming on to a person with a personality disorder like BHO's is not giong to help avoid this critical mass.
