>It’s sort of like if someone invited themselves over to your house for a party or something and then made a gigantic mess.
You (Congress) shouldn’t have let him come over and throw the party in the first place. But one of the two following scenarios is true:
1. You (Congress) were so afraid of losing your seat in the ‘02 midterms that you didn’t have the guts to stand up for your principles.
2. You (Congress) didn’t discover your anti-Iraq War principles until the scales tipped on the national polls, when 50% or more of the public decided (after the fact) that the Iraq War was a bad idea.
Either way, you (Congress) should have exercised some leadership and stood up for what you believed in. Instead, all you (Congress) do is b*tch about the way things turned out, but continue to bring home pork to your district to keep your job, since that’s the only principle that really matters to you.
I have no respect for Congress, whether it’s led by Republicans or Democrats. When they’re not punting to the executive (Iraq), they’re punting to the judiciary (abortion, gay marriage, etc.).
I agree completelty. I have lost almost all respect for congress, whether it be Republican or Democrat. If you don’t like Bush’s policies, do something about it! Ah, but therin lays the rub. To do something congressmen (especially Democrats) would actually hvae to take a stand on something and committ to some decision. I think Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi stay up at night shaking because one day they may have to actually make a decision other than to raise taxes, which for them is a given. QED: Congress is now a publically funded version of The View; cackling, whining, unattractive women prattling on about things they won’t even try to understand.
