Over the weekend, the Washington Post warned the Democrats that their "ethical lapses" might cost them majorities come November. This followed the resignation of New York Congressman Eric Massa, under investigation for sexually harassing a male staffer, and Charlie Rangel, stepping down from Ways and Means under the weight of his scandals. The steady drip of Democrat corruption stories puts the lie toPelosi's promise to "run the most ethical Congress in history" and Democrats' promise to "drain the swamp" in Washington.
I mean, look. This is the party that ruthlessly imposes higher taxes on play-by-the-rules Americans -- while elevating tax cheats to run the treasury and write tax laws. While claiming to champion education, they strip funding that allowed impoverished minority kids to access the same school Obama'skids attend. Democrats support giving Miranda rights to a terrorist who attempted to bomb an airliner on Christmas Day while they court marshal Navy Seals because a terrorist got a bloody lip while resisting capture.
Democrat political appointees routinely bash free enterprise, insult religious groups, and criticize their own country.The president uses vitriol to bash American businesses on one hand while begging for campaign donations on the other. The Democrats refuse to admit manmade global warming is a hoax in order to raise taxes and control more industry. And they are still trying to impose their health care takeover against the will of the American people.
The problem for Democrats is they have no "moral" authority because the liberalismhas no moral underpinnings.The Democrat Party today is just a growing gulag!
