We can thank God that the Democrats selected the most stupid people they could find for Congressional leadership positions. If Harry & Nancy were even half wits they would be looking at a 49 state sweep for BO and majorities in excess of 65% in both the House and Senate. Why? Because this President is absolutely the worst excuse for a politician ever to see the light of day.
From The Hill…
The White House has rejected calls from House Republicans that it convene a special session of Congress on energy, saying it wouldn’t make a difference.
“We don’t have plans to call Congress into session — it won’t make a difference if Democratic leaders are unwilling to bring up a bill for an up-down vote,” said White House spokesman Tony Fratto.
Republican Study Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) and Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) asked President Bush to convene the special session in an Aug. 1 letter. The same day, House Republicans launched an unusual protest on the House floor urging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to call Congress back to work.
“Since Speaker Pelosi has decided not to keep the House in session to allow this vote to take place, we urge you to use the power vested in you by the Constitution to convene an immediate energy special session of Congress,” the letter said.
Highlight is mine.
The Democrats hand him, on a silver platter, the opportunity to drive home the point that they don’t give a tinkers dam about “the people” and the price we are paying for energy and he goes to China because hey, everybody knows the Democrats won’t “do” anything so what the heck is the point.
THE POINT! Mr. President is that in just a few months we’re going to hold an election. Now I know you’re not running, but a whole bunch of the members of your party are. And right now a whole bunch of that bunch is going to get their clocks cleaned, probably by “conservative” Democrats who will go out of their way to enable their Marxist Congressional leadership.
YOU have an opportunity to help some of them get elected/reelected.
Call a Special Session and let Harry & Nancy show to the whole country just how sold out they are to the enviro-whackjobs and how little they care about “the people” they claim to represent.
Take this golden opportunity and stick the energy crisis right up their you-know-wheres. Work with John McCain and the Republicans in Congress – who’ve shown the courage to stand up and fight, something you’ve been woefully short on for the past seven and one half years – and help the country. Help your Party, after all you are the leader of the Republican Party for a little while.
Mr. President, leave us with a shining moment to remember your Presidency by. Come home from China, because the American People are more important than the Olympics. Stand up and fight. Call a Special Session. Call a press conference ever day – maybe two a day – and beat the bastards like the cheap drums they are. Make this front page news on every newspaper in the land every day until they pass a bill. Make them sweat. Beat them. If you would only fight, sir, they would back down and run like the cowards they are.
The House is on board. Only you can get the Senate on board. Call a Special Session.
