Lame Duck Congress

Over the last several weeks, it has been rather interesting to watch the Democrats tear each other apart. Their presidential candidates are slinging mud at each other.

They control both houses of Congress and now each house is flinging mud at the other.

The American Prospect-

Wisconsin's Rep. David Obey says this of the Senate in the Wall Street Journal-
"I can tell you when bills will move and you can tell me when the Senate will sell us out," he told The Wall Street Journal.
Senate Majority Leader has this to say about his counterpart in the House, Nancy Pelosi-
Reid has also been confessing his inner feminist in mildly distancing himself from Pelosi. "I can't control Speaker Pelosi. She is a strong independent woman," he said on the Senate floor last week. "She runs the House with an iron hand."
To say that the shiny new Democrat controlled government has gotten very little accomplished this year is a understatement.

Although they are trying to blame the Republicans, they only have themselves to blame.

They control both Houses of Congress and yet, they cannot get a budget passed or any other piece of important legislation for that matter.

I know that they keep accusing the President of vetoing all their important stuff. Let's be honest, in seven years, the President has only vetoed seven bills.

All I have to say about this is that for a lame duck President, Bush sure holds a lot of power over the Democrats.

It is looking more and more like we have a lame duck Congress with two lame duck leaders, Pelosi and Reid.
