Will Murtha blame it on Election fraud???...

Big news came out of Washington today when the Democrats picked Rep. Steny Hoyer to be the next House Majority Leader over Rep. John Murtha with a vote of 149-86. Hoyer’s win came just a short time after Democrats made Pelosi the first woman to hold the coveted position of Speaker of the House. For those not knowing of this position, this means that Nancy Pelosi will now be third in line to the Presidency beginning in January when Congress reconvenes.

Pelosi told those in attendance the Democrats need to have unity within the party and then promptly nominated Murtha as the House Majority Leader. Examining this shows the Democrats have already shot down Pelosi’s first call to action as the next Speaker of the House. What kind of message will this send not only to Pelosi but throughout the rest of the Democratic Party?

If Murtha would have won the nomination, there is no doubt an Iraq pre-mature pullout would have been inevitable as he and Pelosi would have teamed together eradicating all the War Policies put forth by the Bush Administration. Devaluating the current White House Administration would not have stopped there though, next would have been other policies such as the Tax Breaks put in place by Bush which has greatly contributed to our society and our economy. Charlie Rangel would have seen his cue and entered into the Political Realm of tearing the Bush Administration apart, one policy after another. The new Democratic slogan would have been, “Eating the Elephant one bite at a time.”

Only time will tell whether the next two years will be successful for the Democratic Party or if they will fall flat on their ‘ass’ (pun intended). As mentioned in a previous post, I do not believe the Democrats truly expected to win based on their platform alone. They were successful in playing upon the thoughts and feelings of the American public and were able to sway the vote and the elections.

Just touching the surface briefly here, one has to wonder if Hillary Rodham-Clinton will delay her Presidential bid from 2008 to 2012. If the delay is pushed back another Presidential term it should be considered how strong Hillary believes her candidacy to be. Meaning if the Democrats get in and are unable to make significant changes to our society, I believe the Silent Majority will speak and speak loudly in the casting of votes come 2008. A Democratic failure would put extra pressure upon Clinton and would thus weaken her socialistic platform she would be campaigning on. The American people want change and demonstrated that strongly with the November Elections. The kind of change does not mean bringing on socialism.
