Whew...that was tougher than I thought it would be...a whole week with no political posts! Here are a few highlights from last week that are still relevant today to talk about.
Congressional overstep: Since when does the Constitution allow the Congress to negotiate foreign affairs, especially with our enemies? Pelosi going over to Syria, to talk to a terror sponsoring dictator is absurd and does nothing to strengthen this nation, but instead does lots to weaken it. Then not only does she presume to speak for the US, she also falsely claimed to speak for Israel. Gotta love Dem foreign policy...hurt the good guys...help the bad guys!
Kerry to debate environment: Apparently now that Kerry isn't running for President in '08 he can "speak the truth on environmental issues." So, if he were running, would he be lying? Actually the answer is he would be saying what the polls tell him to say at any given moment. What conviction! Any wonder why the flip-flop tag stuck?
Imus: As everyone has said, his comment was ridiculous and wrong. And if he weren't a liberal, he would have been fired on the spot as opposed to a two week suspension. However, I for one am not calling for that. Just like Rush should not have been fired for his comments on ESPN and Lott should not have been forced to resign his post after his comments, Imus should not be fired for one mistake if he is truly sorry and does his best to make amends, which it appears that he is doing his best to do. And for Sharpton and Jackson to be leading the charge is the epitome of hypocrisy after all they have done in their lives to ferment racial tensions.
