Going Against the Flow

At least the Republican flow, that is.

Napolitano is an idiot; no question about that but to call for her resignation will change nothing.  As one put it:

“I don’t know that the secretary understands the depth of the disruption that she’s caused,” Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Texas, told FOX News on Thursday, referring to the report on extremist threats. “I think the appropriate thing to do is for her to step down and let’s move on.” 

except there will be no moving on. Like everything else in Washington, D.C. once done, it is rarely undone. The report is dissminated and the investigations will go on whether it’s Napolitano in charge or a replacement.

When there were all the calls for some Bush officials to resign, did it change anything in Washington, D.C. except to give them Democrats more credence every time they uttered some falsehood? Who paid the price for that? It wasn’t just the Republicans in Congress who paid, but the American people.

Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., also said Napolitano’s resignation is in order, and she should be brought before Congress for a hearing. 

Yes, let’s have a hearing, give Napolitano a slap on the wrist. In the meantime, the report is disseminated and people are being investigated as a result. I don’t know about anybody else, but I’m just a tad tired of show trials and hearings. It’s a waste of taxpayers money when enough of that has been wasted already.

Last year, the House Republicans began a revolt. What happened to that? Now, since the election is over you’re back to playing the Democrats’ games written to the Democrats’ advantage and you pay the American citizens, who pay your salaries by the way: lip service.

If you can’t fully join in the movement called Tea Parties, then get out of the way and let the people do what you should have done years ago and didn’t. Diplomacy doesn’t work with Democrats. The only thing that works with them is the threat of losing power and money. They don’t care how they get it as long as they do and they’re sure not going to just give it back once they’ve got it.
