If THIS doesn't become a campaign ad for 2008, then somebody in the GOP just isn't thinking. On a day in which the Congress has only shepherded two--TWO-- of the required fifteen (?) appropriations bills into law, THIS is what the Senate is going to be doing with three of the next ten business days.
Suggestion for a Shaeffer ad:
In 2006, the country elected a Democratic majority to the U.S Senate--to "get things done."
In 2007, the Democratic Senate attempted to declare defeat in Iraq 42 times.
In 2007, the Democratic Senate attempted to add $15 billion in useless pork projects to needed funding for Veteran's benefits.
In 2007, the Democratic Senate only managed to pass TWO of its 15 required appropriations bills for things like the Department of Education, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Department of Defense.
Why, you might wonder, did the Democratic Senate accomplish so little in 2007?
Don't make the same mistake in 2008. Elect a Republican to the Senate. Elect Bob Shaeffer.
If only the Dems would send Ken Salazar up to do this little charade so we could get that on video. THAT would be priceless.
