President Nancy Pelosi and Vice President Harry Reid of the Blue States of America
Ms. Pelosi rammed legislation through the House of Representatives that would strip Mr. Bush of his authority as commander in chief to manage troop movements in Iraq. Now she is attempting to introduce a new Middle East policy that directly conflicts with that of the president. …Ms. Pelosi's attempt to establish a shadow presidency is not only counterproductive, it is foolish.—Washingtonpost.com
Are Democrats acting as if the 2006 mid-term elections which put both houses of Congress in their hands is a political coup? It sure appears like it. Especially when Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announces that there’s a new Congress in town. She only stopped just short of taking on a Texas twang and declaring that this town ain’t big enough for the both of us President Bush. Guess Pelosi is leaving all the southern twanging to Hillary.
Then Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid up and declares that the war in Iraq is lost. Which was news to our troops in the middle of fire fights in Iraq. I can see the men now; between M-16 rounds, Hey John did you hear Senator Reid just announced that the war is lost. John answers back, Yeah I just show him on Al Jazzera TV in that last house we just checked.
To top it off Senator Reid had the audacity to call the sitting President delusional about the war in Iraq. Wait a minute you call a war lost which was handily won and you do this with fighting men in the field and you’re calling the President delusional? …Yeah right!
Speaking of delusion the Democrats challenge to President Bush’s legitimate constitutional war authority makes them a government unto themselves.
The last I looked this was a Democratic Constitutional Republic. One which the people elect a President and she or he leads the nation with support from a cabinet of congressional approved administrators meant to conducts the affairs of state.
However there as been phenomena developing in this country as late as the 2000 presidential elections which is made more distinct by a closely divided House of Representatives and a closely divided Congress, that phenomena has been Democrats acting as if their political defeats entitled them to half of the political power in America.
Democrat behavior has been unprecedented in the way that they have demand equal time with the President of the United States so much so that they have created a dual leadership situation that has only been seen in America once before.
This situation is even more apparent now that Democrats control both the Congress and the House of Representatives. Democrats more than ever are acting as if they share a co- Presidency with President George Bush.
The Speaker of the House who is third in succession to the Presidency has demanded a larger Government Jet to jet her to and from her home in San Francisco and Washington D.C., a kind of Air Force plus 1.
If you haven’t noticed we are now functioning as two governments one controlled by President Nancy Pelosi the first woman President of the United States and her Vice President Senator Harry Reid. And the second legitimate government of President George Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.
Not since President Jefferson Davis of the Confederate States of America challenged President Abraham Lincoln has the United States had two Presidents simultaneously.
Democrats have effectively split the Government of the United States of America and now acting as Democrat President Nancy Pelosi along with her Vice President Harry Reid are governing a shadow government as an anti-Bush government alternative.
President Pelosi has made her first official diplomatic trip to Syria signaling that there is a new foreign policy in the United States and is planning her next trip to Iran.
Her Vice President Harry Reid has declared that he represents the people of the United States and the elected President, President Bush doesn’t. And to prove his point Democrats have decided to send President Bush legislation that will micro manage the war and then set a date to cut and run, establishing a dual Commander-in-Chief situation,between President Bush and the Democratic controlled Congress. Yeah that’s what the people want!
So how does a Democrat governed government fight a war? First declare that the war is lost and when the President of the United States ask for war funding you send him a bill that includes domestic spending, $6.9 billion for recovery along the Gulf Coast and allocates $650 million for children's health care, among other tertiary spending measures, why focus on winning the war?
And then be sure to set dates that your enemy can measure your limits. How long will Americans fight for freedom? Oh about four years and then please no more! Then maybe we can negotiate how much freedom we’re willing to give up to keep the peace. Cindy Sheehan could do that job; Sheehan would make one good ambassador for negotiating away our freedoms for peace.
As additional acts of Democrats inappropriate power grabbing become more and more apparent it should become clear to all Americans that Democrats are acting unconstitutionally.
The last time a shadow government was set up it the United States of America we fought a war over it and President Jefferson Davis was arrested.
That’s something to think about isn’t it President Pelosi?
