Conflate This Too...Looking for BUSH Democrats 2008

 

Yawn! Well, I decided not to watch the SOTU last night and instead did myself a favor and went to bed early. I woke up really early and turned on the TV and of course there was the SOTU on CSPAN and MSNBC. It was a lot of blah, blah, blah, as I knew it was going to be. I worked on this post while Conflated statements filled the room. Glad I didn't put myself through this last night...feeling pretty rested today!

Barack Obama warmly greeted excited colleagues. Only moment worth looking at the television for. He is inspiring!

Time to add to "Conflated - Looking for BUSH Republicans" from yesterday.... now this is worth my attention....

Blue Dog Democrats: Conservative, Or Just Plain Corrupt? by David Sirota CommonDreams.org

"Still, this new Blue Dog letter takes the cake for sheer brazenness. Why? Because the current mortgage crisis is especially hitting the kinds of exurban and rural districts these “conservative” Democrats purport to speak for."

Since never, of course. “Conservatism” is being used as the cover for corruption.

"So how many of these Blue Dogs are Republicans reregistered as Democrats?"

Daniel November 30th, 2007
"An excellent article pointing out that there are many Democrats who ought to be REPLACED, but carefully so as to assure you get more liberal Democrats and not seat losses that flip agenda control of either house back to Republicans."



One last Argument with Bush Juan Cole Informed Comment Tuesday, January 29, 2008

"So here are some last arguments with the man's bald faced lies, for old times sake."

Sad fact: "Afghanistan Journalist sentenced to Death for Blasphemy" and I don't think women would agree with Bush's rosy picture of progressive democracy in Kabul.

Sad Fact: Indiana GOP tries to keep ordinary citizens from voting



DownWithTyranny! A FISA VICTORY IN THE SENATE... FOR NOW Point of Obstruction Monday, January 28, 2008 "The only Democrats crossing over to the Dark Side were Ben Nelson (NE), Mary Landrieu (LA), Blanche Lincoln (AR) and Mark Pryor (AR), 4 of the most most consistently reactionary Democrats in Congress."

Cloture vote fails, 48-45

The two heroes of the whole FISA bill were Chris Dodd and Russ Feingold, who consistently stood up to the Bush machine and to their own weak, confused leaders.
