Holding the Democrats accountable


February 3, 2006

"The Islamic terrorists will either succeed in changing our way of life, or we will succeed in changing theirs," Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said.

"I've called in the F.B.I., the Department of Justice," Mr. Goss said. "It is my aim and it is my hope that we will witness a grand jury investigation with reporters present, being asked to reveal who is leaking this information."

"I am concerned that some of my Democrat colleagues used this unique public forum to make clear that they believe the gravest threat we face is not Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda, but rather the president of the United States," Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KA) said. "There is no doubt in my mind there are marching orders to the minority members of this committee to question and attack, at every opportunity, the president, the vice president, the secretary of state, attorney general and now members of our intelligence agencies."

"We must begin by speaking loudly and clearly against the way that this administration has undermined our nation's security and bungled the war on terror," Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN) said. "Tough is not enough. We need a foreign policy that is both tough and smart."

"The Republican Party would have the American flag and the swastika flying side by side," Black activist Julian Bond said.

Democrats’ causing debt

When it comes to running up the national debt, nothing compares to government entitlement programs like Social Security. President Bush in Minnesota yesterday laid the blame for failure to deal with this behemoth and unstable future debt directly on the Democrats.

Just two days ago, Democrats cheered the presidents’ failure to gain support for reforming Social Security at the president's State of the Union address.

"There's a solution to be had," President Bush said during a visit to a 3M plant outside Minneapolis. "Unfortunately, the atmosphere in Washington appears that there will be no solution because there's too much politics."

Pataki tries Iowa restaurant

Governor George Pataki (R-NY) was in Sioux City, Iowa, visiting the restaurant owned by Iowa Republican Party Chairman Ray Hoffman, according to the town’s Journal newspaper. Pataki hinted that he is interested in being President:

"I am just proud of my record as governor of New York, and believe that the policies that have helped make New York stronger could help make America stronger too," Pataki said.

Hillary Clinton: "Dump drug help"

In a hearing on the drug assistance program the federal government provides for seniors, Sen. Hillary Clinton stated that she favored "dumping the program." Clinton’s action would remove more than 24 million seniors from the new drug assistance program.

It took Congress more than 20 years to pass a drug benefit program.
