A Different Perspective

Brian J. Kennedy, press secretary to House Republican Leader John Boehner, used this response to a request for a report on the legislative work of the Iraqi parliament to make a comparison to the Democratic Congress:

Is the new Iraqi Parliament out-legislating the Democratic Congress in Washington? Please note the following letter from the State Department to U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Ranking Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, on the progress of the Iraqi Parliament.

Comparison of Bills Signed Into Law:

* Democratic Congress - 48

* Iraqi Parliament - 53

Number of Post Offices Signed Into Law:

* Democratic Congress - 12

* Iraqi Parliament - 00

Nor excessive unneeded costly investigations into how thin air was abrogated by the Bush admin into some sorta scandal.

WildWillie:

Democratic leadership in action. I personally want to ask the democrats to keep having hearings, keep arguing about the USA's, keep making statements about refusing judges before they are nominated, keep showing up at KOS events. This is the gift that keeps giving. We, as republicans, do not have to do any heavy lifting here. I thought it was comical to watch Harry Reid Thursday doing his best to pass stuff so he didn't appear totally worthless. Oh yeah! Democrats, please keep Harry Reid as your senate leader. Better yet, Schumer. ww

groucho:

The only heavy lifting the Republicans, and many spineless Dems as well, are involved in is unloading the caskets of our brave young people who continue to die for their foolishness. A dead son, daughter, father or mother is truly "the gift that keeps on giving".

How many of those post offices will be named after big money donors to the Democrat party?

And Kos or DU or WizBlue never does that, right?

yo:

jp ..., did you read any of it, yourself? It's even got bullet points, it's pretty easy.

The kinda' stuff that both sides should be reciting.

#8 is kinda' interesting.

Look at all the amendments to previous (circa '79, etc) laws.

#31, and a lot of the 40's look cool too.

50 is a flat out joke.

Section II is chock full of yummy, too.

Again, this is the kinda' stuff the American public should see -- that's why it's put into press releases.

It's also interesting to read some of the Revolutionary Command Council's decisions (that was Saddam's rubber-stamp group) that have been rescinded.

Assuming that's true for the sake of argument, that places them light-years ahead of you.

Of course you could get your own blog, say join the Blue Crew, to show your "talents."

But that would take a bit more intellect than you are apparently capable of. Prove me wrong.

What, you want Blue to sink even lower into the abyss?

Hmmm, wait a minute. That's not such a bad idea.

Add my vote!
