What do you get with a divided house?
SOME people make the argument that a house divided is stronger than a unified house. Of course, some others have made the point that’s not true. I would be in that boat. I have also stated several times in the past that within two years, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi would do so much damage to the Democrat Party that not only will they lose the Presidential election, they most likely would lose their majority in Congress. So far, it’s looking like I over-estimated their chances to survive two years. Barely three months into their leadership I made the “saving Republicans” post. Now eight months in, it’s much, much, worse:
Last year The Rolling Stone did a piece called “Worst Congress Ever”. They based it on the fact that they don’t like Conservatives. They even said so. Part of the reason it was the worst ever was because one of their worst leaders ever was a Christian. They were pandering to poll numbers. Now, Rolling Stone and whoever agreed, what to make of THIS Congress? Remember Nancy’s 10 point plan? How much of that has actually been realized? More transparent government? They tried to hide pork. Cleaning up the culture of corruption, William Jefferson is STILL in Congress and Nancy won’t say a peep about it. Getting our troops out of Iraq? Harry goes home while the rest do nothing. Anyone still wonder why this Congress has a 14% approval rating? The lowest Zogby has EVER registered.
The plan as I laid out on November 7, 2006 is moving way ahead of schedule. I really thought Nancy and Harry could hold things together at least one year. I was wrong.
OK, divided supporters, that was mostly sarcasm. Harry and Nancy never had a chance because the guy who signs their legislation into law won’t. Rather than seeking some common middle ground as other, wiser, leaders have done in the past to show progress, Harry and Nancy are thumbing their noses at the guy that signs their legislation. As stupid as media and a lot of people paint Bush, his popularity has increased while Nancy and Harry’s has plummeted since they took the spotlight. That should tell ya something. But, I’m sure it won’t. A House divided will not stand. That doesn’t have anything to do with party lines. However, because of the infinite wisdom of our Founding Fathers, a broken House can be fixed in two years or less. In this case, I’m betting it gets repaired in about fifteen months. One way or another. Give Nancy and Harry another fifteen months and the Democrats won’t have a chance. This could get very, very messy very, very soon. The person who is getting hurt the worst by this inept leadership of Nancy and Harry is Hillary Clinton. Anyone remember what happened to people who got in Hillary’s cross-hairs in the past?
