Profiles in Cowardice: The GOP

The news that the Republicans are going on the offense must surely have the Left shaking in their designer booties. Well, maybe not.

We were told that if we would provide President Bush with a majority in both the House and Senate, wonderful things would happen. Conservative social values would be upheld, federal spending cut, the size of government reduced, taxes lowered and the borders protected. Just in case you haven't noticed, we were lied to.

Despite holding the majority, Congress has achieved almost nothing of true importance to the future of the country. They managed to pass enough pork to keep their financial backers happy but other than that, there is not one thing that we can point to and say that the Republicans are keeping their promises. Our borders are still wide open and the President and Congress is not showing any courage at all in stopping the flow of criminals across our border. The Federal government grows in
size every day as new departments such as Homeland Security are created.
Federal spending is out of control and getting worse. And the mighty Republicans are not even able -- or willing - to fix the alternative minimum tax that is negatively impacting so many middle class taxpayers for fear that the Fed will lose over a trillion dollars over the next ten years.

Perhaps the problem is that Republicans are unable to focus on more than one issue at a time. For many, many months, Frist and the do-nothing crew have fiddled around and gotten no further towards resolving this mess and now we are expected to believe that they are actually going to do something, anything at all?

Face it folks, no matter how often the Republicans blame the Left for our problems, the GOP has the majority and is doing nothing to help defeat the left. The problem is simple and obvious - the Republicans have all of the backbone of a limp noodle. About the only thing they are capable of doing is raising money and whining about the media and the Left. They are cowards and do not deserve our support.
