Our Future Direction

We now have "change" for better or for worse. After last nights elections the votes have been tallied and the results are in. It appears that the Democrats have control of the House and probably (after recounts) control of the Senate. The most likely result of Democratic control of legislature and Republican control of executive will be gridlock, unless the President sells out to Pelosi and crew i.e. Rumsfeld resignation. What was the cause for this change in power? Most pundits believe it to be the war and how it has been executed. The problem in our opinion is most Americans don't take into account how it will be executed in the future with a lame duck president and an opposition congress. This leads us to an article we read in REAL CLEAR POLITICS where the author sees this "change" leading us to abandoning Iraq. The author is Canadian and can not be accused of being a Republican operative.

[sigh] No, despite all of the hate from the Democrats, our President wouldn't be selling out. He is a leftist.

What pitiful excuse for "immigration control" we have, came because the House fought tooth and nail against the Senate and the President. No, our "conservative" president is the one signing off on spending like it is going out of style, who is pushing for "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" (aka: Amnesty), and who, instead of retracting social services, pushes for increases in Medicaid and even entirely new benefits for said recipients (prescription drugs).

He won't sell out... in fact, he has already admitted that he is quite comfortable with things because now he can work with Congress to pass his comprehensive immigration reform.

I will never understand why people think an R next to someone's name means they are conservative...

Especially when they are a certified Internationalist. Maybe by France's standards he is a far-right conservative, but not by any US standards that I know of.

If the goof in the Oval Office is a leftist then that would make me a Socialist. Oh yea, I forgot, i am.

To 11:08:

Please keep in mind that this is an open blog
