Seeing the Light: Strike 3, he's out??

Reliapundit revisits the Obam-unists and their almost single-handed complicity in the recent collapes of Countrywide, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac. We discussed this yesterday, but our man in New York has summed things up very succinctly.

The truth hurts, folks:
The reason Countrywide and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and Lehman ended up in a ditch is because the Democrats in Congress got their way and blocked a Bush Regulation Plan in 2001 and a McCain Plan in 2005. They claim they did it to protect minorities, but they really did it to protect their friends who ran these three companies: you can check the campaign donations; they went overwhelmingly to the Democrats who protected them - Dodd, Clinton and Obama.

The reason we are in an energy crunch now - and sending to many petrodollars overseas to regimes that don't like us - is because the Democrats in Congress got their way and blocked the Bush-Cheney Energy Plan; in fact, the Democrats in Congress spent more time and money and - dare I say it - ENERGY trying to find out who Cheney talked to than in actually debating legislation which would ave made us more energy independent.

If the Democrats had gotten their way vis a vis The Surge, then Iraq would have completely descended into civil war, sectarian strife and been taken over by AL QAEDA and IRAN, BUT BUSH WON THIS WON. AND AS A RESULT WE SAVED IRAQ.

The ONLY reason Bush won on The Surge was because he had the authority to ORDER IT as Commander in Chief, and then - after ordering it -he challenged Congress to cut funding -- their only way to stop it. The Democrats in Congress tried, but they failed.

The Democrats have been 100% WRONG on the three biggest issues of our day (financial oversight, energy and The Surge) - and because their policies succeeded in the financial arena and the energy arena, we are all suffering.

I hope this illustrates how much is at stake this November, and why it is PARAMOUNT to elect as many Republicans as possible.

I say that as a registered Democrat. Since 1974.

But I must admit that I will probably be voting a straight GOP line this fall - and for the foreseeable future - that is until the Democrat Party is no longer dominated by the left and is once again dominated by sensible centrists whom I can trust on ALL matters of national security: the GWOT; energy; taxes & the economy; and immigration.

If you don't want any more fiasocs, then I suggest you VOTE ACCORDINGLY.
