Limbaugh released; no heart trouble found

January 1, 2010

Rush Limbaugh was released from the hospital in Hawaii today with reports that no heart trouble was found.

As with the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz, I’m not surprised…I do not believe that he has a heart.

What do you think?

Happy New Year…Democrat Dave

Welcome home, Senator Specter

April 28, 2009

I’ve always admired the integrity and courage of Senator Arlen Specter…today my admiration for him has never been higher.

It is rare that a politician changes parties.  I changed parties.  I used to be a staunch Republican.  But, no more.

I’m a proud Democrat and I welcome Arlen Specter to our party.  He, too, has finally seen the light.

The Republican party is on the wrong side of issues and Republicans can continue to ignore that fact to their own peril.  They have become the party of “no ideas” and are catering to a smaller and smaller base.

As long as the Republicans associate themselves with Rush Limbaugh, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Sean Hannity, Sarah Palin, et. al., their fortunes will erode further.  Senator Specter gets it!  John McCain’s daughter, Meghan, gets it!

I’m sure many Republicans will be at the bar tonight hanging their heads thinking, “Arlen Specter never was one of us.”   Sure.

Welcome home, Senator Specter–welcome home.

House GOP should walk the talk–refuse bailout funds

January 30, 2009

This week, the House GOP unanimously rejected the Obama-led bailout initiative to bolster the sagging economy.  Why?

The GOP claims to the be a “party of principle” against deficits, government bailouts, etc.  The GOP believes that trickle-down economics is the only way to go and feels the answer is simply more tax cuts.

If the House Republicans are truly a party of principle, John Boehner, Eric Cantor and the House GOP leadership should immediately announce that the House Republicans will refuse to accept any bailout funds coming into their districts.  Stephen Colbert suggested they do on his show last evening, a brilliant idea don’t you think?

By rejecting bailout funds, the House Republicans send a strong message of principle not only to Barack Obama and the Democrats but also to their constituents.  Think of the strong message that would send!  Why, even Rush Limbaugh would be delighted with this principled response, don’t you think?

Do they have the guts to do it?  Of course not.  They really aren’t that principled. What do you think?
