Still more good news for Republicans

http://reuters.myway.com/article/20050428/2005-04-28T011104Z_01_N27480036_RTRIDST_0_NEWS-CONGRESS-ETHICS-DC.html

The news for the Conservatives just keeps getting better. Since there was zero public outrage and concern over Congress changing the ethics rules, except in the tinfoil lined bunkers at Air America, Moveon.org and Michael Moore?s cheeseburger wrapper filled back seat of his car, it would seem that the rule change has been rolled back because everyone on the inside has seen and evaluated Tom Delay?s ?Ethics Violations? and have found that there may be other cases (Liberals) more egregious. Again, this may be a boon for us all as it may well have the same effect as the post office scandal and the check kiting that was rampant in the House.

I wonder how high this will go on the Dem side.

The Dems have been using this kind of stuff to overturn elections. The idea seems to be to force Republicans out of office. Glass houses?

Talk about seeing the glass as 10% full!

Actually, though, Duckman, we'd rather DeLay not be thrown out just yet -- there is lots of outrage about him in the grass roots (just look at just about any editorial page in the country, except the Weekly Standard and Washington Times!) and with him leading their party next year, we're much more likely to retake the House.
He's already been proven guilty of far more than Jim Wright was when he was forced out...

"This ethics grenade was thrown back into the Democrats? lap this week when it was revealed that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats in the House may have had their travel expenses for a trip to Puerto Rico picked up by another lobbying firm - Smith, Dawson & Andrews. Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones - an Ohio Democrat who unbelievably sits on the House Ethics Committee - was forced to ?amend? a disclosure report this week to show that her junket was paid for by some group called Todo Puerto Rico con Vieques rather than Smith, Dawson & Andrews - blaming the discrepancy on ?human error.?

It should also be noted that your current " we'd rather DeLay not be thrown out just yet " certainly doesn't wash with your many other posts about DeLay Dave. I agree that there was "lots of outrage about him" earlier but that outrage is coming full circle when it is apparent that those attacking him are either equally guilty or equally innocent of wrong doing. Looks more like a desire and attempt to back out from the chin deep position in the cess pool to only knee deep.

Dream on Alice, Wonderland awaits but stay away from the White Rabbit as he already appears to have strongly (albeit negatively) influenced rational thought processes.

It could be called Duckman's Theory of Eval...

uating Liberal Propaganda and the essential basis of the historical loss of liberal seats in several recent elections.

It was the Intelligent Design of the majority of voters that accomplished this historical feat.

10% maybe a good number

In reply to: Talk about seeing the glass as 10% full!

if the indications of protesters is used. During Saturdays dedication of the new International Space Station Monument in Nassau Bay of the 100+ on site only 10 maybe 12 was protesting and yelling during Mr Delays speech, so 10% could be a good number.

Page 24 Houston Chronicle only shows one.
