A Failed Government

Our government has just failed us. Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats escaped Washington with out a vote on energy proposals. For weeks the Democrats knew they were losing the battle and yet they were determined to run out the clock. It appears they have succeeded.

The Republicans stayed on the floor and debated even though the Democrats adjourned and turned off the lights and Mics. They shut down the C-Span feed and left a few aides behind while they shirked their responsibility to the American people. The Democratic aides were outraged that there were reporters covering the story of Republicans staying in session debating energy in an adjourned house. One senior Democratic aide quipped to a reporter "your not covering this are you". Another democratic aide called the Republicans "morons".

The Republican Party understands Americans are feeling the pain at the gas pump. They understand that unless something is done now to reduce fuel costs average Americans will be unable to heat their homes this winter. On hot humid day like today who is thinking of winter. Well the Republicans are. They understand that it takes time to enact real legislation that will help reduce energy costs. They understand that unless we act now we will be unable to afford heating oil. Unfortunately, the Democrats have run out the clock. It is far too important for them to have a five week vacation than it is to actually vote on real legislation to reduce the high cost of energy. Pelosi is too busy claiming she is single handedly saving the planet to worry about the republic. Obama is too busy pushing his $1,000 tax credit gimmick to worry about real policies.

Why did Obama wait until after the house adjourned to announce his gimmick? Where was he this summer when we needed energy policy? Oh I forgot he was too busy schmoozing foreign citizens to concern himself with energy or our soldiers. He was too busy playing the race card and too busy telling Americans we need to inflate our tires. Wow what brilliance. The chosen "One" is so intelligent yet his plan so simple. Provide $1,000 relief to assist people pay for oil that cost twice as much today as it did when he took office. Provide a plan for inflating our tires and develop plans to force Americans to change their habits. This is the change Obama brings. He plans on taking us back to the stone age in an effort to save the planet.

We need to vote out all incumbents. We need new politicians. People that truly believe in American tradition. Americans that are proud to be Americans. Americans that really can transcend race. Unfortunately we have no politicians currently that fit that bill. Obama is not the "One". Obama is change we can not believe in. Today the Democratic Party led by Obama and Pelosi failed America. Our government is an utter failure. I thought our government was for the people by the people? It seems that our government has become for the political power brokers by the corrupt scammers.

Save for a few freshmen Democrat congressionals and the Republicans, at least on this energy crisis, no, we have no politicians that seem to be up to governing.

Perhaps they're trying to foment revolution, as in another Boston Tea Party and what ensued?

Who knows? But they do seem to be so arrogant now that they don't care what happens.

The Democrats truly appear not to represent the people, not to care about the people and to have become enemies of the people.

This will backfire on them in November.
