Same old garbage

I thought maybe since the election was over, we would remove the shackles of idiocy and start to have thoughtful debate, and get back "to the business" of the country. Apparently, I was guilty of extreme idealism. The old tired lines of the left that was used throughout the campaign have plainly become "seared, seared" into their consciousness.

Sunday on "Meet the Press", Dem. Congressman Charles Rangel told Tim Russert: "I'm telling you, we went into Iraq not for elections. We went there to knock off Saddam Hussein, but the American people thought it was connected with 9/11, there was weapons of mass destruction, there were connections with al Qaeda. It was all a fraud," Mr. Rangel said.

This is so disingenuous and pathetic.

Then when he was asked about Social Security (they even played a soundbite of him, I believe from 1998, in which he stated the poor shape Soc. Sec. was in and needed fixing) and what ideas he had today, he immediately went into spin mode. He never answered the question. He never addressed the soundbite where he admitted Soc. Sec. was in trouble. He just hammered Pres. Bush on Soc. Sec.

No ideas. No imagination. No thoughtful, insightful suggestions. Just hackneyed political swill.
