A Leader to be Proud Of

On The Today Show this morning (during my workout) they told with election day coming upon us George Bush is in plenty of the commercials. But, he is playing a reverse roll. The last time around, it was a shoo-in if the Republican running had a picture of he and President George Bush having a quality moment together. And this time around the Democrats are taunting the same photograph – showing proof he was in cahoots with the President. In fact, the incumbent Republican office holder is saying, "Wait! I did not agree with Bush on everything!”

And the Democrats plays another commercial that the Rep paid for the time before saying he agreed with the President 98% of the time.

There were several Republicans that fit that description.

The Today Show showed in one photograph of the Republican candidate and Bush having quality time. The same picture was altered to remove the President. The candidate didn’t want to be seen with him.

I think it is pretty much the unwritten rule that congress members vote alone party lines. You are shunned if you don’t. Now, considering, the King of the Republican Party and the Nation is considered a nut by more and more people, Republicans are bragging about how independent they are.

I love it! Sort of like Taylor commericial that starts out showing a clip of a "Sonny Do" commercial with that awful music. Then the records skids to a halt and Mark's narrator takes over.

I like the Sonny commercial where his wife says she hope Mark doesn't throw mud like he did during the primary (that was mud ball #1).
And yesterday on TV Sonny said "I hate to bring it up, but..." then brings up a tragic event in the Mark Taylor household that involved drinking and drugs. Does anybody really believe he "hated to bring it up"?

Yes, Sonny just oozed with sincerity when he made that comment. Looks like he expected Mark to go negative earlier and timed the ad to reflect that. Instead, he threw the first punch and looked like a hypocrite in doing so.

I wonder who got the points over all in their favor?

Since most people in Georgia these day tend to vote Republican you just about have to move mountains to make an impression with them.

Isn't politics terrible? I wouldn't want to run for anything - I have skeletons in every closet... my opponent would nave a ball.

This White House and Tom DeLay were especially effective in getting members to vote on their party line or face severe penalties. Democrats are not so good at this type of discipline, which is both good and, in these times, most unfortunate. You'll often find Dems voting for short-sighted tax cuts to the wealthiest and the like, but Republicans NEVER vote against it.

A few years ago, the Bush adminstration proposed legislation to eviscerate Head Start, which is a very cost-effect program delivering pre-school to the poorest kids. Seven Republicans actually voted against it, and at least one of them was stripped of his committee chairmanship as a result. (Granted, he also voted against the demolition of the Community Development Block Grant and Community Development Financial Institution Fund, so I guess he had it coming.)

Never cross a Repubican or their ideals - they have a memory like an elephant... maybe that is how their icon came to be.
