Blame Susana Mendoza for the Stench in Illinois

I am really tired of slick politicians like this cutie and the far more crotchety Harry Reid playing fast and loose with the law. Law must be followed even when it is a bad law.

The reason why the U.S. Senate is in its current dilemma is because of selfish partisans like pretty in pink Susana Mendoza refused to rewrite the laws striping the Governor of his ability to appoint vacancies. Mendoza and her party were to chickenshit to open up the matter to a special election. Mendoza feared the voters might pick a Republican and Mendoza and her cronies want this seat to stop Republican filibusters.

Governor Blagojevich appointing Roland Burris is the simple consequence of the Illinois Democrats' cynically calculated inaction. It is no more complicated than that.

As a matter of law, the appointment is legal and Mr. Burris should be seated, tainted as he is. The Illinois Secretary of the State has no ground to stand on in holding up the appointment. I am sure the court will order him to certify Blagojevich's choice. He is still the Governor.

Likewise Majority Leader Harry Reid would be sidestepping the law and ignoring a supreme court precedent by sending the matter to a committee to wait out the clock.

Yes it stinks but put the blame where it belongs --- Mendoza and the Democrat Party of Illinois. They wanted this seat this badly so they will just have to live with the foul stench for the next two years.

Hey Big Sister!

Julio wanted a big screen flat TV. I could not swing that. We are working on it though!

One thing is for sure. 2010 is going to be a good time to run for office if you are a Republican. I hope you consider running for town office this year. Maybe something small. Are you on your town's Republican Town Committee yet? If not; why not?

Don't spend all your time blogging. Get out there. They will welcome you with open arms. They are always looking for new blood.

I volunteered for the Ethics Commission. The old first selectman blocked me from consideration but the new one didn't. (She beat him last year)

The Ethics Board is perfect for me. We only meet when we have a case. I am going to run for town council but I will prob lose again.

Which again will be perfect considering my shedule! ha ha

Have to noticed the mixed signals Obama has been sending? First he picks so called moderates for his economic team. Then he lets it known through leaks and talking heads that he is going to keep the Bush Tax Cuts for two years because of the sorry state of the economy. (Which I took as a backhanded admission that the much decried “trickle down economics” really does work!).

Then the leaks and heads say they are going to repeal the Bush Tax Cuts rather than let them expire and increase taxes right away on the SuperRich.

Then yesterday I hear he is back to keeping them until they expire.

He is not even sworn in yet and he can't even get what he leaks to the press straight.

Bill Clinton's problem a liberal Republican lady I know told me in the early 1990’s was he was "to intelligent".

Her opinion; not mine.

Helen said the reason why Reagan was so successful was because he was such a simpleton. Again -- her opinion; not mine.

But I think Helen had a point. Reagan had a clear straight forward idea of what he wanted to do. Cut taxes, build up the military and bring the USSR to her knees.

(-- not in the way Clinton would imagine I feel I must add!!).

Clinton got caught up into to many details and his plans went back and forth. He ended up jacking up taxes a lot then said he raised them to much latter. The people’s response to that and his HillaryCare and gays in the military and so on was a Republican majority.

Clinton actually was credited for the Republican Majority’s policy changes. He got the credit but we got the policy changes we wanted (some of them anyway).

Obama might suffer in the same way as Clinton did from 1992-94.

Time will tell. I do hope we recapture congress but at the same time I dread the inevitable disaster that will predate our return to power.

One thing is for sure. You won't find a sticker on my car that says "I have no President".

That's the thing that makes up better than them Big Sister. Don't forget that.


Our love of country isn’t conditional on election results.
