SCARBOROUGH: The lack of leadership in Washington, D.C., is sickening. If you look at what Republicans did-promised to do in 1994, when they took control of Congress, and see how they’ve been acting over the past three or four years, the biggest debt and deficit ever. They are irresponsible and reckless on so many levels. I’m embarrassed right now to be a Republican. It’s a disgrace because of the lack of leadership.
You can check out the video at Crooks and Liars.
I got a funny feeling many others on the right are sharing the same feelings with Joe right now. They are just ashamed to admit it. There are signs though, you just need to look. Take this AP article that just came out a couple hours ago:
Restless Republicans are already looking beyond the embattled Bush presidency to the 2008 campaign. Nearly 2,000 GOP activists opened a weekend conference Friday to hear from presidential prospects and share strategies on a conservative agenda that many believe Washington has forsaken.
The delegates were voting in an informal “straw poll” to test the popularity of White House hopefuls including those in attendance — Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, Sen. George Allen of Virginia, Sen. Sam Brownback of Kansas, Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist of Tennessee
The fact is Bush is a disgrace. He is a disgrace to America and even more of a disgrace to the GOP. He is the President that is destroying America and his party has sat by blindly and allowed it.
The Republicans should feel disgraced right now. Even more, they should be ashamed. They are just as guilty as Bush when it comes to the crap we are in today.
Consider this White House. Scooter Libby – indicted. David Safavia – indicted. Now we get another one. Claude Allen, former White House domestic policy adviser -indicted. You may not know of Mr. Allen’s indictment because it just happened today. His indictment is for felonious theft. He resigned from the White House just a couple weeks ago.
So how many more criminals, cheats, thieves, liars, perjurers, leakers, intelligence twisters, etc., etc., etc. are we going to let help run our country? This bullshit has to stop. Republicans can cry all they want but when a child misbehaves the parents are also to blame.
