    How to Speak Democrat

    Last Friday, Congressman Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI), spoke on the House floor about the intricacies of “how to speak Democrat.”

    (have caught quick-witted and wise McCotter on the Red Eye show a couple of times--very funny)

    But you fellows are still losers. Health Care Bill. Stimulas Package. Education Bill in the Healthcare Bill.

    And the economy is slowly pulling away from the brink of the Second Great Republican Depression.

    Spot on. It's sad Democrats keep moving further and further to the Left. What's even worse is that the Republicans are doing the same thing, leaving millions without representation.

    Republicans are moving so far right, just look at Texas and the new priorities for teaching kids. Welcome to the American Taliban.

    It only looks far right because the Left has moved off the map.

    Who cares where "civilized world" is going. America should not follow the world, but to lead it.
