Unprincipled Congressional "Leadership"

By failing to allow a vote on the Protect America Act--which gained bipartisan support in the Senate--the Democratic "leadership" in Congress is doing nothing more than enabling their trial-lawyer contributors to sue telecommunications companies who, in the past, patriotically cooperated with US government efforts to monitor overseas--that's "overseas"--terrorist traffic. Result: those companies upon whom the government very heavily relies for new terrorist leads are no longer inclined to cooperate. For the "Pelosi Gang", politics again trumps American security.

The "Pelosi Gang" is also blocking a vote on the SAVE Act which, among other common-sense provisions, calls for sanctions against US employers who knowingly hire illegal aliens, as well as an increase in the number of border patrol agents to better safeguard our borders.

As if this cynical and self-serving obstructionism is not enough, the shameless "Pelosi Gang" has refused to stop passage of nearly $18 billion worth of pork barrel spending, aka earmarks, this in in direct contravention of their sacred promise to voters in 2006 to restore transparency, fiscal responsibility and honesty to Congress. Yeah, right.

Disgracefully self-serving politicians bent on power alone, the "Pelosi Gang" and their congressional minions once again have shown their true colors--and it definitely isn't red, white and blue.
