Change in Washington/UPDATE

November 7, 2008

The leadership of the Democratic Party has been promoting a bipartisan America for the past year; that we as Democrats, Republicans, and Independents need to come together for a better America.  If I had ten wampum for every time I heard “reaching across the aisle” in this election, I would have a lot of useless wampum.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

When Obama was named our next POTUS I was ready to see this change from the Democratic leadership on down.  When have they ever lied to me before?  Well, we see what the Democrats meant by “reaching across the aisle” less than 72 hours after Obama is named POTUS.  Senator Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader, has reached across the aisle.  Not with an extended hand, but with an opened hand to bitch-slap to Joe Lieberman.  Joe Lieberman has been an asset to the US Senate since 1988.  Although he is named as an Independent, he caucuses with the Democratic Party.  Harry Reid has announced that he will be removing Lieberman from his Chairmanship of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee; one of the most important committees in the Senate.  (Via the most liberal internet paper of all The Huffington Post)

Reid, in a sternly worded statement after the 45-minute meeting, said no official decisions have been made. But an aide to the Nevada Democrat said Reid was leaning toward removing Lieberman as chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. The aide spoke on condition of anonymity because the discussions were confidential.

It seems to me that when the Democrats said that each Party needs to come together, they really meant that the Conservatives and Republicans need to come to their side or else.  This feeling I have is spelled out perfectly in Senator Reid’s own words. (via the Hartford Courant)

“While I understand that Senator Lieberman has voted with Democrats a majority of the time, his comments and actions have raised serious concerns among many in our Caucus. I expect there to be additional discussions in the days to come, and Senator Lieberman and I will speak to our Caucus in two weeks to discuss further steps.”

By “further steps” does Harry Reid mean Lieberman better side with the Democrats or else; so much for a Change in Washington.  If I had to make a guess, we will have 4 more years of the same old politics the Democrats promised they would set aside. 


Rahm Emanuel, Obam’s new choice as Chief of Staff has also been tied to the collapse and the alleged fraudulent accounting practices with FreddieMac and FannieMae.  The Good ole’ Boys are back together again.  Let the change begin?

  2. Surely you didn’t really expect anything to change, did you? Those people are happily entrenched and enjoy their ‘elite’ status with its power, money and fawning by lesser beings, especially the ‘media.’ They aren’t about to change!

    Do we wonder at the attacks against Sarah? Who was she after: their ‘old boy’ system. And she had already proved that she not only could, but would, go after them. At the convention she threw down the gauntlet when she said she wasn’t going to DC to curry favor with the press; that’s the moment they decided they would show her their power. The dispicable Chris Matthews admitted today that he had served as an unpaid staff member in Obama’s campaign. Journalist? Ha! He wants to run for congress in PA and this will put him in ‘good standing’ with the Democrats in power. 20 pieces of silver.

    Anyone who goes against any of the above will be subjected to the same – every Joe the plumber will be tarred and feathered, innocent or not. Intimidation, bullying, smearing, demeaning from the media and the government.

  3. I did not think things would change. It was merely a satrical look at the promises by the left. Thank you for the comment. Please continue seek the truth via our website.
