17. Frankly, they have to counter Bushco crap on EVERY issue...
Edited on Mon May-16-05 09:48 PM by Gloria
I've been fuming all day about how wimpy they really are, to the point where Clinton has to tell them to play a little dirtier. And this is years after he told them that it's better to be strong and wrong than weak and right.

Let's look at some of the "heavyweights" on some of these key committees...Levin, Biden, for example. When Biden isn't ass kissing Bushco, he occasionally can nail them good. Levin has experience and can speak... For Christ's sake....we don't have anyone going after Condi for that crap about how the Iraq war "came our way and not the other way around?" And when they do come out, how about staying on the same message--that means you, Joementum.

Shit, if they started to counter this nonesense, maybe the media would start covering it. Why should they lift a finger if our "experts" in the Senate won't bother. This should be a CONSTANT campaign, every day. Get a couple of people from the House and Senate and get it going.

Same thing with this judges. Start tearing them down. Owens and Enron.
Get out there and play the game!!

This was going to be a separate rant until I saw this thread. I think I still want to rant elsewhere....
