    According to Pelosi, Democrats bear no responsibility for the economy woes... just Republicans... The problem with this is that Republicans don't control anything except the White House, and if anyone knows anything about the Constitution, the President doesn't make the laws... so how can this be true?

    Aren't you the ones who are always complaining that dems want regulation and oversight and don't let the "free market" have its way?

    Didn't you spend the last 8 years defending Bush's economy, and telling us the bush tax cuts would put us on a path of robust and sustained job and wage growth?

    NONE!!! Anything we tried to do since 2007, Bush has veto'ed. In fact, the GOP have obstructed progress on purpose since they lost control of both houses because they want to run against a "do nothing" Congress led by Democrats.

    They must think the public is really stupid. I tend to agree with them. But I suspect a lot of Republicans who were not up for re-election in 06 are going to lose their seats. And not a lot of Democrats will lose their seats because back home, people know their democrats only had a one person majority, and that person is Lieberman.

    The GOP shut the dems out of the process from 2000-2006. Tom THE HAMMER Delay was ruthless. They deregulated all these industries. They set up the offshore tax loopholes. THey are the reason we have no money and no jobs.

    Aides to then-Attorney General Alberto Gonzales improperly considered political affiliations and ideologies in hiring, but Gonzales was unaware of those actions, according to results of an investigation released Monday by the Justice Department internal watchdog.

    Employing a method known as "catch and release," DeLay allowed centrist or moderately conservative Republicans to take turns voting against controversial bills. If a representative said that a bill was unpopular in his district, then DeLay would ask him to vote for it only if his vote were necessary for passage; if his vote were not needed, then the representative would be able to vote against the party without reprisal.[citation needed]

    DeLay was elected House Majority Leader after the 2002 midterm elections, and compelled House Republicans to unite to an unprecedented degree, especially in support of President George W. Bush's agenda. In the early 2000s, DeLay helped to coordinate efforts to redistrict congressional districts in Texas to favor the election of more Republicans.

    In 2005, a Texas grand jury indicted DeLay on criminal charges that he had conspired to violate campaign finance laws during that period.

    WASHINGTON -- The federal legal system is designed to stop politics at the courthouse door -- but the Bush administration seems to have broken that door down.

    That's the unmistakeable conclusion of a 140-page report, issued Monday by the Justice Department's Inspector General and Office of Professional Responsibility, that lambasted Bush Justice Department appointees for allowing political considerations to trump skill and experience in appointments to key
    career posts.

    Where are all the Republicans today? Hello???? I've seen a couple but most of them are worried after yesterday.

    This girl at work usually replies to my morning email about how the GOP suck but today she has nothing to say. Yesterday was great for Obama.
