Thought I’d pass along an interesting email I received the other day.
“For everybody reading this, I can’t believe nobody pounds home the most obvious facts. First, last and forever, The US Congress has been controlled by Democrats for almost the entire Bush 43 Presidency. The President couldn’t even get a simple up or down vote on Federal judges for how long?
Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi ground the entire United States government to a virtual halt, obstructing most of what President Bush tried to do. If any of the idiots running their mouths knew anything about how government works, they’d be blaming congress for the petty, vicious obstructionism. Along with big media, that refused to report daily that practically every proposal sent to Congress by President Bush was defeated before it made committee hearings. Everything that was passed and blamed on Bush was only passed for political expediency of politicians in office.
What’s sickening is how many people actually believe that Bush is totally to blame. I’m not saying he didn’t make mistakes, Lord knows he made his share, but what Lincoln said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand” is now a punchline for all the self serving hypocrites in Washington. Of every party. “
EDIT:It has been since pointed out that the Republicans, not the Democrats, were in control for a majority of the time mentioned above. My how fast misinformation spreads. Be nice to see people calling out their own parties for doing this same thing. BTW please don’t use Wikipedia as a reference (though it is in this case much more factual on the topic at the beginning of the email than the idiot that posted this email, which would be me….)
