Hugh Laurie rules.
That being said, let’s talk about the House of Representatives. In particular, let’s talk about Nancy Pelosi, Jack Murtha, and the Republican struggle for the minority positions.
Michelle Malkin is giving advice to Nancy Pelosi on not to select Jack Murtha as Majority Leader. Michelle’s so nice, giving advice to people like that. But I think we could have no better Majority Leader than Jack Murtha.
Murtha’s discovered the key to money & power in the modern DNC— courting the moonbat Left. The PuffingTons Host loves him. He’s a contributor there (like Nancy). Everyone fawns over him for his “brave” stance in bashing our troops. He’s an anti-war disaster, and to have him as Majority Leader would be great.
I want the whole of the Democratic Agenda to come to the floor of the Senate & House these next two years. Please. I want it well documented. I want to see Hillarycare, I want to see a 3-month timetable on pulling the troops out, I want to see an impeachment hearing, I want to see stonewalling of each and every judicial nominee Bush puts forward, I want to see the reinstitution of the Death Tax and the repealment of the Bush Tax Cut, and I want to see Pelosi, Schumer, Kerry, Murtha, Hillary, Durbin and the rest whining on the Sunday morning talk shows about how obstructionist the Republicans are to the UberLiberal agenda.
I want it on video. And I want it plastered all over YouTube. I want any RINOs who “join forces” with the Democrats on YouTube. I want a standing record of all the people who are willing to push the Far-Left Progressive Agenda on the majority of people in the United States. So that way, between 2008 and 2012, we can finally get back to Reagan values in the American government.
As for House Leadership for the GOP, there’s a revolt going on. Good. There should be a revolt. The Republican Majority squandered their control in both houses, and they’ve lost power. Now’s the time to examine the past and see what values get you elected (give you a hint, Reagan and 1994). When you stick to those values, you get reelected. When you get mired down in scandal, big government, and classic Washington politics, you get ousted. And that’s what we saw.
I like Pence and Shadegg. Let’s give them a shot at Minority Leader & Whip. I like Michael Steele as RNC chairman (hey, he lost, so he’s not going to be distracted by his senate job). And I want to see the conservative forces in the party stand up to Bush. In 2004, Bush was leading a War Against Terror, he had the economy back on track, and was facing an anti-war radical in John Kerry. We still thought he was hardcore conservative.
But then Bush changed. He gave up on Social Security reform. He nominated Harriet Miers. He sat on his hands after that, showing no real leadership. Nobody knew what Bush was doing. The economy was good, but Bush wasn’t taking credit for that. He got involved with Katrina, but people blamed him for the lack of planning. He certainly did seem out of touch with people. The continual chaos in Iraq didn’t help, either.
So a message needs to be sent. Be Conservatives! Be Reagans! Be Newts!
And when the Democrats come out with all of their Progressive programs, it’s time to come out strong, as a unified force. Spend money on ads critical of the Democratic policies. Hit them on their ideas and hammer it home that these people are not the people you want in charge. Even more important, recruit conservatives to run in 2008 for Senate and House positions. Get the message out. No “middle of the road” guys. No RINOs. No Chaffees. Real, believing conservatives who support the core platform.
