When the defeatocrats took over congress, Nancy Pelosi proudly announced that congress would now be open 24/7 and there would be changes made.

Well, according to CNN, since the defeatocrats took over, congress has been in session on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday ONLY. And guess what, they haven't done anything; nothing, zip, zero, zilch. Well, let me correct myself, Harry Reid did announce to the world that the war was lost. Nothing like living up to defeatocratic traditions.

"cry baby" ?? I think it's hilarious. Madam Speaker is doing just what I thought she'd do ...... nothing. The defeatocrats are a joke and I'm loving it.

And BTW, "redneck" refers to under-educated southern boys, I'm a college grad in Kearny.

Om, and take out the NINETEEN bills that did nothing but rename either a Post Officer or other federal facility, and the one that redesignated where the funds from the bloody gift shop in the senate goes to, and you're left with 22..looking closely there are some other in there that are nothing but fluff as well. a rather far cry from the projections of Pelosi, Reid and others of how Productive they were going to be in their first 100 days.

*cue the Pretenders' "My City Was Gone"* :lol:

Seriously, did you count how many of the bills named something? About the most substantial legislation was (finally) getting a spending bill to the president to fund the troops in Iraq. The Dems failed to move significantly on lobbying reforms or earmark reforms.

On the latter, the Dems last week attempted to hide earmarks by not adding them until after bills had been debated. Committees would have decided which anonymous earmarks would utilize "slush fund" monies attached to the bill. The Democrat plan would have kept voters in the dark about who was responsible for earmark legislation.

The good news is the Republicans blew the whistle and opposed the plan, forcing the Dems to cave (at least for now).

Call your Democratic representative and tell him or her that earmarks must be transparent.

True-but look at the 109th's progress at this point-and they were a continuing majority. It takes a LOT of time between introducing a bill and getting it passed (which was all I posted-things sent to the president). We won't know how much gets done until we can compare the complete record of the two Congresses. There isn't much 'sweeping legislation' that will get past the president.

I agree about earmark and lobbying reform-the Democrats are going to be hurt in '08 for not doing anything about it. You can't run on fixing the Republican 'corruption' and then do the same exact thing you accused them of. Not that the Republicans will do anything about it either, but whatever. :lol:

WOW !! I'm impressed. The defeatocrats named a bunch of post offices. So let's sum this up; Harry Reid (in true defeatocratic fashion) announced to the world that the war was lost and some post offices were dedicated. I'll have to admit I was wrong, that's a pretty impressive list of accomplishments.

That's a fair criticism of the GOP--they rolled in the pork like nobody's business during Bush's first six years. On the other hand, it was the GOP that stayed the hand of the Democrats in this case.

As poor as the Republicans were on fiscal responsibility under Bush, you're going to find the Democrats worse. Just look at their proposed budget for this year. They want to twilight the Bush tax cuts, and they have no intention of lowering the budget deficit with that tax money. It's all getting spent.

You have to read between the lines to see it in this near-glowing review by CoBaPP:

Not much mention of the twilight for the tax cuts, is there?

Heritage Foundation paints a different picture. Look for the truth somewhere in the middle.

"cry baby" ??  I think it's hilarious.  Madam Speaker is doing just what I thought she'd do ...... nothing. The defeatocrats are a joke and I'm loving it.

    And BTW,  "redneck" refers to under-educated southern boys, I'm a college grad in Kearny.

A proud beneficiary of no idiot left out behind

When the defeatocrats took over congress, Nancy Pelosi proudly announced that congress would now be open 24/7 and there would be changes made.

  Well, according to CNN, since the defeatocrats took over, congress has been in session on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday ONLY.  And guess what, they haven't done anything; nothing, zip, zero, zilch.  Well, let me correct myself, Harry Reid did announce to the world that the war was lost. Nothing like living up to defeatocratic traditions.

For once you may be right, they should well along the road to impeaching the current misleadership by now

WOW !! I'm impressed.  The defeatocrats named a bunch of post offices. So let's sum this up; Harry Reid (in true defeatocratic fashion) announced to the world that the war was lost and some post offices were dedicated. I'll have to admit I was wrong, that's a pretty impressive list of accomplishments.

Beats the hell out of wrecking our economy, destroying our international standing and getting us into a civil war we have no good way out of. At least we Democrats have the sense to know that the performance of our guys isn't good enough.

And just WHAT has this shrub you worship accomplished with his lying misleadership in over six years?

Beats the hell out of wrecking our economy,

How do you figure? Unemployment is low, Dow is up, and inflation remains under control. What constitutes the supposedly wrecked economy, in your eyes?

destroying our international standing

Baloney. The US hasn't been well-liked abroad since she became a superpower. But feel free to give real examples that actually mean something.

and getting us into a civil war we have no good way out of.

You wouldn't want to consider winning, I suppose?

At least we Democrats have the sense to know that the performance of our guys isn't good enough.

Unless you or your political party has some real ideas, you seem to have a recipe for chronic complaining.

This is why I am now autonomous. :lol: Both parties are saying by their actions "Sure we're bad, but we're not as bad as they are!" When either party pushes a platform of reform and actually does it I'll go with them. Until then, I'll vote against whoever's in power until they get the message.

Both parties pretty much S**K-if we would vote out the incumbents when they don't do what we want they'd get the message. But no-everyone just tows the party line saying "At least my corrupt bastards aren't as bad as the other corrupt bastards." Since when does America accept that crap?

One interesting thing-why are Republicans complaining that not enough laws are being passed? Reagan famously said that the scariest words in the English language are "I'm from the government and I'm here to help." The last thing a true conservative wants are more unneeded laws.

Oh-and all the people mocking the renaming of buildings might want to look at how many times the 109th Congress did the same. Just type http://thomas.loc.gov/ into your browser's address window instead of depending on the news for your information.

He has taken the war to the terrorists and away from our shores. He has kept us all safe since 9/11. Thank God for George Bush.

Bush has done nothing more than anyone else in his position would have done. Although I'm not so sure about the whole "illegal war" part. I would like to think that anyone else in his position would of had some degree of restraint in that area.

Bush made our military an available target for attack. Right, I got it. Unfortunately he put them in a place where have no right to be. I also wonder why the task force specially formed to get Bin Laden, you know the guy actually behind 9/11 has long since been disbanded. Come to think of it you rarely hear about him anymore.

I just wonder that if someone else were in his postion maybe I wouldn't fear our govt. as much as I do.

So you'll end up in allegience with a party even if it succeeds in reforming things for the worse? Or is there an unspoken assumption that reform is for the better?

One interesting thing-why are Republicans complaining that not enough laws are being passed?

Because of the volume of promises made by the Democrats when they achieved majorities in both the House and the Senate, of course. Naturally it's better if they can't pass a single thing other than what necessary to keep the troops funded and the government from doing the basics. But meanwhile we can point Democrats to the ineptitude of their leaders and hopefully restore a majority whose policies actually make sense (except when they abandon them for new entitlement programs and dilly-dallying on border security and the like).

Reagan famously said that the scariest words in the English language are "I'm from the government and I'm here to help." The last thing a true conservative wants are more unneeded laws.

Hear, hear.

A few laws gutting other unneeded laws would be welcome, however. And certainly some procedural changes to keep earmarks transparent should be welcomed by Republicans as well as Democrats.

Oh-and all the people mocking the renaming of buildings might want to look at how many times the 109th Congress did the same. Just type http://thomas.loc.gov/ into your browser's address window instead of depending on the news for your information.

It's mock-worthy because of the way the Dems patted themselves on the back over such a wonderful beginning.

Plus you need to compare bills that actually did something.
