Rubber-stamp Congress covers Bush and Cheney's crimes

Tacoma Letter Carrier Tom Chambliss got this op-ed into the TNT the other day. I thought I'd share it with our readers, and get your reaction.

They want you to be afraid, very afraid, not of terrorists, but of Democrats. Dick Cheney and George Bush are trying to use a two year old police investigation in London to counter a crucial victory for liberals in Connecticut, one that scared the hell out of them. They went back to their bag of tricks and pushed for the arrest early so they could get the fear level up in the U.S.

They intended to nip this liberal win in the bud, so Dick Cheney announces that the good people of Connecticut are supporting Al Qaeda by voting for Ned Lamont. Let me remind you that this tough-talking VP hasn’t done a thing to distance us from an attack. We are no safer now that we were on September 10th, 2001.

The real blame falls right on the shoulders of the Republican Congress. They have had all the power of oversight all along but have been cowards, choosing instead to be a rubber stamp to the failed policies. The recommendations of the 9/11 Commission haven’t been mentioned. The Republican-led Congress’ failure to act is the real terror.
