Congress Intimitated By Bush The Bully And "Daunting" Schedule

Congress has a daunting schedule? It is if you consider printing an agenda and following it to actually accomplishing something. Anything. Daunting? Dig up Tip, you need a new vote counter that has 10 fingers and ten toes.
Congress Returning for Daunting Agenda
"We're going to continue to try to see if we can't get in place a timetable
for the removal of most of the troops that we have there," said Sen. Carl Levin,
D-Mich., who chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee, on CNN's "Late
Edition.""Congress should be able to state a goal for the removal of most of the
American troops without a veto threat."

Yeah, well Carl, you also shoulda been able to skip school and sit around all day smokin doobs and eating oreos without a thumping threat from Mama. How'd that work out for you? 'Bout the same as this veto threat? Thought so. Stupid then. Stupid now. Be sure to thank Mama Carl.

Pot Calling Kettle Black At The LA Times

CNN: Corrupt News Network
A self-serving agenda was set for the Republican presidential debates.

THE United States is at war in the Middle East and Central Asia, the
economy is writhing like a snake with a broken back, oil prices are relentlessly
climbing toward $100 a barrel and an increasing number of Americans just can't
afford to be sick with anything that won't be treated with aspirin and bed

So, when CNN brought the Republican presidential candidates together this
week for what is loosely termed a "debate," what did the country get but a
discussion of immigration, Biblical inerrancy and the propriety of flying the
Confederate flag?

In fact, this most recent debacle masquerading as a presidential debate
raises serious questions about whether CNN is ethically or professionally
suitable to play the political role the Democratic and Republican parties
recently have conceded it.

In any event, CNN has failed in its responsibilities to the political
process and it's time for the leaders of both the Republican and Democratic
parties to take the network out of our electoral affairs.
WOW, that takes some brass ones for the LA Times to actually attempt to stand on that rickety soap box.
