Hardly a Lame Duck Session; more like a Gathering of the Foul Fowl

Updated on December 28, 2010

Finally it all came mercifully to an end. What started off showing great promise; the Republicans had finally gotten the message and the Democrats were running scared after two years of in your face politics; ended on the same old sour note we’ve listened to since January 2009. This time the gift of the seasonal Magi; Obama, Reid and Pelosi was more of the same old now you see me now you don’t politics instead of Peace on the Hill coupled with American good Will!      

Rotten Reid and his side kick Prune Face Pelosi had no intention of going away quietly. In fact I only hope the Tea Party was making a list and checking it twice to be used in 2 years when election time rolls around again. The turn coat Republican whose name should appear first on the list is none other than Tennessee’s Lamar Alexander. He along with side kick Dick Lugar voted with the anti war Socialist against our military to ratify START which gave ole Barrackie Boo yet another victory to parade out in front of the media in order to once again appear viable to the independents. I could hardly retain my breakfast as he stood smugly in front of the cameras proclaiming this is what the American People were saying when they voted in November; they want compromise. Well you all know to Obama and his merry band of Socialists, Compromise means Republicans agreeing with them! What the hell were these Republicans thinking?

This foul bunch of fowls were anything but Lame Ducks; they plowed straight ahead with their In Your Face Style Politics; the same agenda they had successfully pushed against the will of the American People for the past two years. The Republicans exercised some new found intestinal fortitude in the beginning as they successfully beat back the attempted Amnesty Bill and the Zillion Dollar Omnibus Obamapalusa spending bill.  Then it was though the  Tea Party message and the 2010 election never occurred as they began to cave in typical “How Quickly We Forget” chicken sheet style as they acquiesced on Don’t ask don’t tell and the Start Treaty giving Obama two sugar plums for his Christmas Tree!

Now as this bunch of foul fowls left the House and Senate Chambers and formed their V for Victory flight pattern they passed over the capital one more time leaving their droppings in the eyes and Tea Cups of the Republicans who looked up and waved goodbye as Reid and his Merry Band of Socialist honked out Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

      They know very well whaqt we said through the election; it's just that they believe we don't know what's good for us so it's up to them to do what's best for us!

      PP I could not agree more. The press called it one of the most productive lame duck sessions ever. I call it a blatant disaster. And Harry and Nancy are still there.I wanna see some really hard core conservatism back in Congress. And I don't wanna see any compromise.

      Apparently these idiots are unaware that we had an election and the American people aren't happy with their warped agenda. You hub spelled in out perfectly.

      Thanks Pop

      You probably reconized some of this from my critique of your hub on the same subject!

      Thanks for a perfect and accurate summation of the Very Lame Duck Session. Who do these fools think they are representing? Certainly not the American people. Voted up and awesome.
