Which is it, Dems?
The Democrats in Congress are no longer the minority party, they are the party of opposition. No matter what the idea, issue, opinion, nominee or legislation, unless it comes from their side they are automatically against it. They offer no solutions, no intelligent debate, essentially no governance; merely negative rhetoric politically inflamed. They roundly criticize President Bush for his inaugural speech in which he said America is for freedom and liberty and will support it around the world -- the same thing John F. Kennedy said in his 1960 inauguration. President Bush stated in his State of the Union that Social Security needs to be fixed, without harming current or future recipients and that he is open to all ideas and positive input from both sides -- the same thing Bill Clinton said in his 1997 and 1998 State of the Union addresses. Are Congressional Democrats ready to criticize the speeches of their two icons? If not they are either hypocrites or proving themselves barriers to the purpose of the House and Senate to consider, debate and pass legislation for the betterment of our nation. If they are willing such criticism of their own standard bearers then they show themselves to be against freedom and liberty for others and uncaring for the future of our children and grandchildren. Which is it?Dennis
