Carol Platt Liebau: Hypocrisy, Thy Name is Democrat

Hypocrisy, Thy Name is Democrat

Here's just one more example of Democrats ignoring the pledges that helped bring them to power last year -- they are attempting to change procedural rules in the House of Representatives to limit the ability of the minority (Republicans) from having any impact on the political debate.

Certainly, the House isn't the Senate -- there's always been much more heavy-handed domination by the majority, whatever the party in charge. But here, Democrats are considering changing a rule that's been in place since 1822.

Imagine the outcry had Republicans contemplated such a move! And although it's a largely inside-the-Beltway matter that has limited interest and appeal for normal Americans, it's the kind of story that much of the Beltway media has played up in the past when the shoe has been on the other foot.

It will be interesting to see how much coverage this Democratic attempt at a power grab receives.

Carol how about deleting Greg's personal insult under "Instant Reaction".

He even admitted he knew your rules and chose to violate them. You also violated them by posting his nonsense.

What I stated in the section was simply poll results. That certainly does warrant breaking the rules.

Happily, and once again, Pelosi has failed!

Republicans are worried about this?

Tom DeLay! Tom DeLay! Tom DeLay!

Hypocrisy is a Republican phenomenon these days.
