WWJD: What would Jesus do?
This is a question asked by many Christian folks daily to help guide their decisions in life. They have studied Jesus in the bible or learned of his behavior in Sunday School. They have made an intelligent, informed decision. They have chosen to lead their lives the way Jesus would lead his life.
WWLD: What will Lieberman do?
This is a question the Democrats did not ask when they accepted Lieberman into their caucus and decided to count on his vote. When Joe was accepted into the caucus and able to retain his position on both Homeland Security and Armed Services, including two chairmanships, was there any quid pro quo? Was there a study of his background? Was there a study of his voting record to determine if this guy is someone the Democrats want in their caucus? Someone who they can count on to support them in the passing of key legislation this country needs to catch up with the rest of the civilized Nations? Legislation designed to stop this Roller Coaster Economy. Legislation designed to get us a Ferris Wheel Economy
WWGT: What was Gore thinking?
How did Gore pick Lieberman for his Vice President? If you research Joe Lieberman, you come up empty. His values are weak and geared to his ambitions. He clams to be an Observant Jew, not an Orthodox Jew. He does not practice exactly what Orthodox Jews require, so he just made up a new category that will not offend Orthodox Jews but make him more than a Conservative Jew. I know, it does not sound like a big deal, but it’s typical of what Joe will do to get the votes. His record is a series of contradictions culminating with a speech at the Republican Convention in 2008. Gore gave Lieberman credibility with his nomination; Lieberman gave Gore a defeat; then, to reward him, the Democrats gave Lieberman a seat at their table.
WWRD: What would Republicans do?
Let me answer this question with another question: how many votes have the Democrats gotten from the Republicans? Close your eyes. What do you see? The Republicans know how to ask questions and get commitments before they seat their caucus. I have no doubt each and every member of the Republican caucus would fear for their lives if they went against the party vote. You betcha!
To be Brutal, to be Frank, the only way the Left is going to get legislation passed that is meaningful and effective at turning the tide is to get 60 solid votes in the Senate, and it’s not gonna happen. Republicans will sit back, shoot bullets and wait until it’s their turn again to undo whatever does get accomplished by the Left. Then the Right will give us another Roller Coaster Ride.
Back to you, Greg.
