The second major BLUNDER, next to the invasion of Iraq, is Nancy Pelosi's refusal to hold the Bush administration accountable for their treasonous policy decisions, and it may be the reason that Republicans win the next Presidential election and continue to take our nation on its current downward spiral.
The speaker of the house has exhibited the same stubborn and arrogant behavior which she accuses the Bush administration of, by STAYING THE COURSE in refusing to hold impeachment hearings and demanding accountability, against the wishes of a majority of American citizens. She has taken it upon herself to be the DECIDER while making a vital strategic BLUNDER. Sound familiar?
Why would a vast majority of Americans vote for the same party who has taken this nation down a path of self-destruction as if there were no other alternative? Perhaps because Nancy Pelosi has by now proven that the Democrats are not the solution to restoring what only eight years ago, was perceived as a powerful and prosperous nation. Her elementary and mistaken belief that Americans will vote for Democrats simply because of the divisive and destructive policies of the Republicans may prove to be detrimentally wrong. She has simultaneously revealed the Democrats inability to derail the disparaging path of this Neo-Conservative administration, while appearing to be strong-armed by them. More than any other time in our nations' history, we need strong leadership, and Nancy Pelosi is complicit in establishing a perception that the Democratic party is weak. Americans are now faced with deciding between WEAKNESS and STRENGTH, not RIGHT and WRONG, or GOOD and BAD.
With a diminishing economy, an enormous amount of national debt, contemptuous international relations, a recession and the likelihood of a depression, inflation, ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the threat of a war with Iran, possible involvement in the Russia-Georgia conflict, and with no end in sight, Americans fear that a WEAK administration could be their demise.
Considering the Bush administration's blatant disregard and manipulation of laws, it appalls me to listen to Nancy Pelosi continue making excuses for Congress' inability to do their job, and I question whose side she is really on. By not sustaining the will of the American people, she has defined the Democrats as undependable and has jeopardized the chances of a Democratic win.
A commitment by the Democratic congress to hold this administration accountable, presenting strength, dependability and willingness to adhere to the will of the American people could have made a difference in the upcoming election.
Thanks to Nancy Pelosi, Republicans may win the presidential election and we will continue with four more years of fear-mongering and destructive policies.
