Well it seems that the groundwork for '08 is already being laid, first really big faux pas is the John Murtha thing, Pelosi wants him to be House Majority Leader... there goes ridding the congress of corruption, welcome back the Republicans. While he is clear on his view of Iraq, he has a very muddied and questionable past. I thought the american electorate had spoken and voted for an effort to clean up DC and it pols.. this move makes no sense and is just the beginning of business as usual. Pelosi is not draining the swamp, just adding more alligators.. http://www.americanchronicle.com/articles/viewArticle.asp?articleID=16701 Americans gave the Democrats control of the Senate and the House for two main reasons: Disgust at the Republican?s ?Culture of Corruption? and anger at Bush?s mishandling of the Iraq War. During the long campaign, Nancy Pelosi, repeatedly assured voters that she would ?drain the swamp.? Instead of living up to her campaign promise, Pelosi is seeking to elevate the biggest alligator in the swamp to a position of power and influence. Pelosi?s ill-advised decision to back John Murtha?s bid to become House majority leader, is undermining Democrat?s efforts to present themselves as more ethical than the Republican scoundrels they replaced.
