Lorie Byrd wonders, in light of Harry Reid’s latest, classless move (and Boxer’s unsurprisingly move against Bolton), what’s in Teddy’s file? It’s a good question, and you’ll want to go read Lorie’s thoughts. Then, you’ll want to go here, and read Michelle Malkin’s EXCELLENT ROUND UP of all things Reid
The GOP video re The Party of No needs to be played and replayed today.
But you know what? This bottomless appetite for political sniping and character assassination we’re seeing from the Democrats is going to backfire on them. How do I know? Because today I spoke with an old family friend, a 73 year-old, lifelong Democrat, a woman who contributes to the party and who has actively worked on campaigns, most recently for John Kerry. She is a woman who does not like George W. Bush and would never vote for him, under any circumstance. She told me that she is “thoroughly disgusted” with her party and all their petty little machinations. “Bush was elected, he has the right to name his judges. The complaints against Bolton amount to nothing, and the resistance against him is nothing but spite, and I am ashamed that my party, MY party, is playing fast and lose with the constitution and the filibuster. I never thought I would feel bad for Bush, but I do, and I hope he gets what he wants, now. These people don’t represent me. I don’t know who they represent, anymore, besides themselves, but they don’t represent me. THe precedent they are setting is reprehensible.”
If THIS woman is turning, and beginning to think of Bush as the sympathetic underdog…then the Democrats are doing tremendous harm to themselves with their relentless obstructionism.
Don’t lose heart. God does exist, and even when it seems like we are faced with an opposition that has nothing to offer but schemes and silliness, He’s got a hand in things. Prayer has power. It can defeat all this hate, and maliciousness.
