Wide-eyed Moonbat Rep. Nancy Pelosi & fellow Congressional Democrats plot take-over of House of Representatives & payback for Clinton impeachment....
The buzz in Washington is that Congressional Democrats' pseudo-contract with America will include efforts to impeach President George W. Bush. They want to take back the House of Representatives in 2006 so they are the majority and can accomplish that.
They are promising to conduct a slew of investigations of the Bush Administration, its policy-making, its use of wiretaps of foreign terrorists talking with people inside the U.S., V.P. Cheney's involvement in developing energy policy, the existence of WMD in Iraq, and prosecution of the Iraq War, andonandonandonandon.... ad infinitum and ad nauseum. If only they can get control of the House of Representatives to use as a forum and springboard for their long-desired investigate-the-Bush-Administration-to-death plan.
Democrats have---from day one of the GWB presidency---already been prosecuting an all-out war on policies and top officials of the Bush Administration. A political war complete with Clinton-style politics of personal destruction, designed and executed to smear and destroy administration officials, effective Republicans leaders in Congress, and President Bush's nominees to the federal courts---including the Supreme Court.
Now they want to turn the U.S. House of Representatives into a Joe McCarthy-style inquisition---with Nancy Pelosi and company as inquisitors-in-chief. When their only qualification for doing so is their five years of experience as reactive carpers-in-chief.
The Democrats' "contract with America" strategy has no substance and none of them can come up with or explain any specifics inherent in their copy-cat plan. So, where's the beef? I can't find any in it---because there's none there.
Democrats are citing the results of an AP-Ipsos poll that claimed 51% of respondents think Democrats should be in control of Congress. Their citing---and anyone believing---a hard-left liberal AP poll with no disclosure of wording, order of questions asked, or population polled is as insane as accepting results of other similarly-conducted and released propagandizing hard-left MSM polls as fact, instead of the fiction they are.
Anyone who believes polls put out by the MSM is a fool. And anyone who believes on-line polls that can be responded to multiple times by the same person is a fool. There are too many variables that can be manipulated in polling.
Reputable pollers will provide the wording and order of questions, the population polled, and the percentage margin of error. But, no polls can be truly accurate, because millions of people have cell phones, caller I.D., or call-blocking. And others---especially the poor---have no phones.
I'm sure you've noticed that Democrats in Congress have already started running on a platform touting Republican "culture of corruption." Problem is..., they have corruption problems within their own ranks, in the persons of Democrat Congressmen McDermott and Jefferson, as well as many other Democrats---such as Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid---who had connections to the Jack Abramoff lobbying firm and received campaign contributions from Abramoff's firm and/or Indian tribes whom Abramoff represented. Senator Reid received large campaign contributions from those Indian tribes and then voted in favor of Congressional legislation that benefitted them.
Soooo...., let's get some investigations going NOW to investigate Democrat "corruption." And get the House Ethics Committee to operating again---now that obstructive Democrat Rep. Allan Mollohan, D-WVa Minority co-Chair of the Ethics Committee has had to step down due to allegations of corruption on his part.
More below and here, about the Democrats' big smear-investigate-and-destroy plan they hope will get more Democrats elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. You will find that it seems custom-designed to get out the Republican base and fill Republican coffers! But, hey..., I'm not complaining. We'll take it---thank-you-very-much!
"Confident Democrats Lay Out Agenda: Party Plans Probes Of Administration If It Wins the House"
"Democratic leaders, increasingly confident they will seize control of the House in November, are laying plans for a legislative blitz during their first week in power that would raise the minimum wage, roll back parts of the Republican prescription drug law, implement homeland security measures and reinstate lapsed budget deficit controls.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) said in an interview last week that a Democratic House would launch a series of investigations of the Bush administration, beginning with the White House's first-term energy task force and probably including the use of intelligence in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq.... (S)he said of the planned investigations, "You never know where it leads to...."
Pelosi also vowed "to use the power to investigate" the administration on multiple fronts, starting with the task force convened in secret by Vice President Cheney to devise the administration's energy policy.... "Certainly the conduct of the war" in Iraq would be the subject of hearings, if not a full-fledged House investigation, Pelosi said. Another subject for investigation could be the use of intelligence on Saddam Hussein's alleged weapons of mass destruction to make the case for the 2003 invasion.
Hoyer added that he would like to see investigations into the extent of domestic wiretapping by the National Security Agency, and the billions of dollars wasted by contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan...."
