There is much talk about the sanity of Sen. **joe lieberman; I've wondered about this ever since he campaigned for Sen. John McCain and that other lunatic from Alaska. I agree joe has some serious mental issues to deal with, but my concerns are how does one senator stop the work of the Senate repeatedly? Where is **harry reid in all of this chaos?
harry reid must be replaced as majority leader, democratic senators keep coming to his aid as the Senate comes to a complete halt, nothing is getting through that the republicans don't want and they only have 40 votes. What we need is someone to say to joe, you're fired----no more Chairmanship, no more big office, and that parking space you used to have---gone!
When a new Senator, Al Franken refused to give little joe more time on the senate floor we all cheered, we called people up, we told strangers, "Did you see what Al did to little joe?" Senator reid was given the credit for this move, I don't care whose idea it was, it was a moment. We need a leader in the senate who will tell the democrats who are blocking the health care bill, you vote with the republicans against letting this bill come up for a vote, you are out of the democratic caucus, if you have a chairmanship say bye, bye.
harry reid and Obama's chief of staff, rahm emanuel must be removed from power, joe lieberman must be shunned and put in a position that his staff won't talk to him, he must be stripped of every perk he has gained in the last few years. Hardball? No this is survival time for the democratic party.
Will the democrats do any of these things? Hell no and it is not because they don't have a spine. The democrats will not act because in the past it has served them well to let the republicans look like the party of corruption, and by putting little joe out there to take the heat, well, it does work for them. We get screwed but it works for Chucky and his buddies.
I would like to see every politician who appears on TV to talk about his/her position on any issue that they wear a sign saying how much money they have taken from an interested party. Something like this:
** chuck shummer, I took $2,000,000.00 from the financial sector." As we watch this guy try to sell us on how hard he is working to control the abuses of the financial sector, his sign would wave just a little back and forth; that would be good. (chucky boy is #1 out of 100 senators to receive money from the banks etc.)
The new year is coming and new opportunities will present themselves to us all. Will we see the light or continue thinking we have representatives that care about us? See you in the streets!
