Zack Doesn't Know Jack About Our Constitution

Somehow this doesn't surprise me at all.

Minus: If the silly season of politics hadn't begun already, U.S. Rep. Zack Space, D-Dover, kicked if off for sure this past week with a truly absurd proposal to conduct national referendums on trade deals. Even if you think the idea has merits, and we don't, it's clearly in violation of the U.S. Constitution, which grants exclusive powers to the president to negotiate foreign treaties and to the Senate to ratify such deals. It's these type of sideshow political proposals that take all of us away from real issues such as health care, Social Security and real solutions for our economy.

I wonder if Zack thinks we should have referendums on such boondoggles as his Cap and Tax and him getting permission from everyone's favorite Nana to vote no on ObamaCare. This boy ain't no Socrates.

Leftists On The Mall Proclaim "It's not as bad as they're making it out."

Oh, really? Where is all of Obama's talk about the worst since the Great Depression? Where is the anguished proclamations that Mr Evil Bush ruined everything? Well, now that Obama has done his FDR routine of making things worse they now want to say that right wing nuts are overstating their case. I guess the unions couldn't hire really good protesters for their rally.

Thousands gather in DC in support of Dems agenda

More than 400 organizations, including faith, environmental and gay rights groups, sponsored the "One Nation Working Together" demonstration on the same end of the National Mall where a month ago tea party activists met to hear conservative commentator Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin.

"We're here to show the rest of the country that there are people who support the progressive agenda," said Ken Bork, who came from Camas, Wash. But he acknowledged that Republicans are enjoying an advantage heading toward the Nov. 2 election that will determine whether Democrats retain control of Congress.

"There may be an enthusiasm gap, but we're not going to know until we have an election," Bork said. "A lot of the noise from the extreme right-wing stuff, it's been well orchestrated by big money. But it's not as bad as they're making it out."

There are some that "support" the progressive agenda? Of course there are. There are also those that still support communism. Death and depredation just don't deter some people.
