In the fall of 2006, Congressional Democrats did everything they could to make the war in Iraq their campaign draw issue; the crux of their quest for a majority in the House, and their quest for power. It worked. People believed the promises of a New Direction in Iraq, and DNC lemmings bought every excuse imaginable when no plan was provided (let alone implemented). Since then, the party has claimed that it not only needs a majority, but it needs a 2/3 majority to have unchecked political power. Promised that if such a power were granted, wide-eyed Democratic Party idealists continue to nodd their heads in agreement and appeasement. And then today, the last straw on the camel’s back was put in place: Congressional Democrats did a complete 180 degree turn and broke not one, but TWO of their last remaining campaign for power promises from two years ago.
Having voted for a Democrat for Senate and Democrat for Congress here in Ohio back in Nov 06 (specifically Sen Sherrod Brown and Congressman Tim Ryan), I believe I have the right to demand why the people I elected to power have failed, and why they’ve broken their campaign promises. Lacking such an honest admission that they pandered and misled me, I will not be voting to re-elect them in the future. This fall is going to be interesting.
