Republicans Play Softball

leave a comment »

To listen to Democrats, Republicans are always playing hardball and the poor Democrats always getting the stuffing beaten out of them.

Right.

Let’s check the record:

Condi Rice browbeaten by Barbara Boxer.

Alberto Gonzales lectured on water torture by Ted Kennedy.

The Republican leadership compared to the Nazis by Grand Kleagle of the KKK Robert “pave that forest!” Byrd.

John Bolton stymied by accusations that he’s been a demanding boss.

Tom Delay will be investigated by the House Ethics Committee for conforming to house rules. And for doing things that Nancy Pelosi, among countless others, have done.

Judges still being held up by the ‘threat’ of a filibuster in the Senate.

This is ridiculous. The Republicans have been winning election after election, but it’s like they can’t quite believe it. It’s long past time for them to get on with the business the people elected them to do and not be afraid of the Democrats who are, after in, in the minority! It’s not like they can actually prevent anything on the floor the Republicans want, so they use the MSM megaphone, procedural tricks, and phoney ethics charges to obstruct, prevent, and oppose. It is now the Democrats standing athwart history yelling “Stop!” and the Republican leadership meekly seeks compromise.

There is no compromise with the Democrats. It is a Leftist mantra: heads we win, tails you lose. And the Republicans keep falling for it. There is no reason to keep electing Republicans unless they will actually do the job. It’s time to call the Democrats’ bluff and get on with the business of governing. It’s time to play the same game the Democrats are playing: hardball.

Update Over at GOPBloggers, Matt Margolis has an informative graphic on the ‘Web of Hypocrisy’ the democrats have woven about the Tom Delay charges. Check it out.
