It’s All In How You Look At It.

by

Democrats don’t seemed very concerned by the number of “problem children” that are or have gotten in the recent past.

Now Bill Richardson has withdrawn his name citing the concerns over the timing of a Federal Investigation…

Pardon me, but the timing?  How about the fact that he is even be investigated in the first place?  There was a pretty huge squall over Stevens and some reported irregularities.  I don’t hear much about the old Clinton gang member.  Just the concern over the distraction to the administration because of the TIMING.

There is very little point in rehashing the Blago drama in Ill.  Knowing he’s already under the scope he displays the arrogance to appoint a Senator, after being suspected in trying to sell that very same seat.  I don’t put any of the blame in this on the P-E or even his staff, but certainly the wording on tape suggest someone knew of what he was doing and ignored it.

When was the last time you heard anything about the charges and investigation against William Jefferson?  Fact is once he lost his reelection bid, no one seems to care to follow through with the investigation or to punish the crime.

And this is a indication of just how honest, how truthful, politicians are when they say they want “clean up the way business is done”, in Washington.  Fact is, in case you forgot, the $90,000 found in Jefferson’s freezer, doesn’t matter in the least, because in one way or another almost all of them do it.  And if they “go after” Jefferson, there is no sure thing that he won’t start naming names of others who get away with the same thing.

This is what helps the climate of greed and corruption in Washington.  Because so much is always going on, people tend to forget things when they fall off the front page.

Another example of things people forget.  During his campaign Obama talked about how if we could put a man on the moon in a decade, you couldn’t tell him we couldn’t find a way to make burning coal clean.  That doing so would create 5 mnillion new jobs.  Once elected he dropped his new jobs claim to 2.5 million, then upped it when raising rates of unemployment came out to 3 million new jobs.  What happened to that 5 million during the Primary?

What about the “failed policies of Bush” who gave so many tax breaks?  The slight flaw in Bush’s plan was no spending reduction.  That is in part what made his policy a “failure”, even though we rode a great ride for many years under it.  P-E Obama is suggesting the very same policy, less taxes and not a single word on any spending cuts.  That is at least consistent with his campaign since he never could name a single program he could target with a cut.

So this is where we stand before the new kids even take over, after running on the pledge of changing the way business is done in DC.  Unless being stupid enough to get caught is changing something, or running on one thing and doing another is a change from the norm, I fail to see any difference.

    Eileen,

    Thanks for stopping in. I look forward to seeing you blog. As far as Ms. Alisyn goes, as far as I know she doesn’t even look at mine. Not sure motherhood and professional life leaves her much time for extra things.

    Hey Chas, I’ve copy and pasted a note I sent to Eileen concerning her quilting project. JUST in-case I have the wrong e-mail address…. (which for me is likely) !

    Hiya Eileen,

    One of my best friends’ in the world husband works for a conservative think tank. As I was speaking with her this week she had mentioned to me that her husbands “new project” was to coordinate and bring together (under one umbrella so to speak) all of the wounded warrior resources. It occurred to me that the project you work on might just fit into that umbrella nicely. With your permission I would like to tell Matt about your project, and perhaps if it fits with his project, “connect” him with your organization.

    As with anything political, I have no clue if this is something Matt would even consider to be something his project would encompass, but he might know someone who knows someone who can help with your generous endeavors.

    With your permission, I will pass your organization’s details along to him.

    I trust you and Chas had a lovely holiday, and are looking forward to a glorious New Year!

    I will wait for your response before I act on any intentions.

    Warm Regards Lori
