The Mysteries of a Lame Duck Congress

“Who here trusts the GOP?” Not a sin­gle hand went up

DaT­e­chGuy Sept 2010

One of the things I like least about the polit­i­cal world is the duplic­ity. There are many peo­ple in the polit­i­cal world who will say one thing to get votes and another when they no longer face said votes.

There are a lot of mem­bers of con­gress both house and sen­ate who will not be back after the 3rd of the year, some retired on their own and some were retired by their voters.

Between now and Jan 3rd there are an awful lot of days in which things can get done. Dur­ing this time when these men have noth­ing to gain polit­i­cally we will dis­cover if the promises made to those who elected then and sus­tained them in office meant anything.

Will we dis­cover that those who proudly called them­selves con­ser­v­a­tives, devoted to life, pro­tec­tors of the 2nd amend­ment, opposed to mob rule, defend­ers of due process, defend­ers of our bor­der and sup­port­ers of the mil­i­tary that pro­tects us.

Or will we dis­cover that they have sim­ply hold­ing a place in the hopes of a bet­ter offer, either as a lob­bies or on the board of a com­pany rewarded by the laws passed by them.

“Who here trusts the GOP?” Not a single hand went up

One of the things I like least about the political world is the duplicity.  There are many people in the political world who will say one thing to get votes and another when they no longer face said votes.

There are a lot of members of congress both house and senate who will not be back after the 3rd of the year, some retired on their own and some were retired by their voters.

Between now and Jan 3rd there are an awful lot of days in which things can get done.  During this time when these men have nothing to gain politically we will discover if the promises made to those who elected then and sustained them in office meant anything.

Will we discover that those who proudly called themselves conservatives, devoted to life, protectors of the 2nd amendment, opposed to mob rule, defenders of due process, defenders of our border and supporters of the military that protects us.

Or will we discover that they have simply holding a place in the hopes of a better offer, either as a lobbies or on the board of a company rewarded by the laws passed by them.
