CONGRESS RETURNS..............BIG DEAL !

The Labor Day weekend has past. August has now become September and the month long Congressional recess is over which means Law Makers have returned to Capitol Hill. The Washington Press Corps is gearing up for interviews and reporting of the happenings on, "The Hill." The rest of the nation either has no clue that the politicians have returned or a collective , "ho hum, " greets Legislators upon their return to Washington.

That is the general tone of the people concerning this Congress. Why ? Well the obvious reason is that this Congress which has been in session since January has not only accomplished nothing but the political rhetoric that has spewed from the floors of both the House and Senate has not only aggravated the electorate but put an even worse taste in our mouths for the Congress then the preceding sessions of the gathering of Law Makers.

As business returns to, "The Hill, " Democrats in anticipation of the report due out next week by General David Patraeus on Iraq are already preparing themselves to attack the report and deem it as a failure or at best a mostly negative report on the progress in Iraq. No matter what the report states or the content of the testimony of General Patraeus, Congressional Democrats have already prepared to ignore the true findings and replace them in their usual liberal rhetoric with falsehoods of failure and calls for surrender.

They will, as has been the case over the past several weeks, be forced to admit that security in Iraq has greatly improved and that the troop surge has worked. While the report will tell of extensive success, Democrats will in their on partisan way down play any success in order to continue with their attacks against the President, the military and our presence in Iraq.

In preparation for this attack against the report the Congress commissioned the GAO to , "investigate, " the progress on the benchmarks that were set forth for the Iraqi government. According to the report that again was commissioned by Democrats , only 15 of the 18 benchmarks have been met. What the report does not state though is what kind of progress has been made on the 15 which have not met total completion in the manner in which the Congress has set these benchmarks.

This GAO report is similar to a teacher telling a student that he has either passed or failed and did not tell that student of progress made since his last report card or that the student has made even a little improvement since the last report. Only that in 15 of his 18 subjects he has failed to meet ALL the standards set forth for the class.

Obviously in the 15, "failings, " that Democrats are touting, there has been progress made since the last report. But for Congressional Democrats to admit this would take away their thunder in attacking the Patraeus report and their ability to grill the General when he sits before Congressional hearings next week.

This move by Democrats toward Iraq combined with a lack luster at best schedule for legislation and continual talk of increasing taxes leaves the American people with an extremely bad taste for this Congress and an even worse taste for the leadership that has no clue how to lead except by expressing falsehoods, making accusations and partisan rhetoric designed to position party, rather than looking out for the nation.

Fortunately for the American people the, "Blue Dog, " Democrats who were elected from more conservative districts in the House or States that lean Red in the Senate are starting to distance themselves from the Democrat leadership especially toward Iraq. So in addition to the usual liberal rhetoric there will be considerable arm twisting by Pelosi and Reid in order to force these, "Blue Dogs, " to stick to the liberal agenda and ignore their constituency.

So what do we have to look forward to for the remainder of the year ? More of the same do nothing politics by a Democrat leadership who see the President and the military as the enemy rather than Islamic radicals. Add to this the political positioning of the large field of Democrat Candidates for the DNC nomination for the 08 Presidential run and the rest of 2007 will follow along the same path as the first half of this year.

Congress has returned to Washington............BIG FAT HAIRY DEAL!!!!

Ken, I think I know why Congress chooses to leave the premises of Capitol Hill each year, they're afraid of the bird poop! Even the birds seem to be ticked off at Congress. Now congress is back and they're going to have to wade through the bird dung in order to get in and out of the building. LOL! Do I feel sorry for them? Not!

Have a great day! :)

"CONGRESS RETURNS..............BIG DEAL"

I like the edginess in that.

On the news tonight it was like a repeat of July. Harry Reid came to the Senate Floor to tell us once again, in that funeral director's tone he has, how we have failed in Iraq and why we are no good at all.

Seems some of these Dems didn't want to hear the good news their fellow Dems brought back from iraq.
