Now they want consensus

Posted By on Fri, Dec 22, 2006 at 12:36 PM

Here's a liberal blogger with no use for the Gang of 14 and Republicans (plus their Democrat enablers) who are now extending the hand of Christian fellowship to the new Democratic majority in the Senate. Where were they before?

In a joint letter to their Senate colleagues, Snowe and Landrieu tried to speak for the country and said that Americans "… are tired of the extremes on both sides pulling us apart, paralyzing effective action. That was a clear message of the 2006 elections."

Nonsense.

By voting for such a colossal shift in the House of Representatives and giving Democrats control of the Senate in a massive and rare six-seat pickup, Americans said one thing and one thing only to Republicans: "We want Democratic leadership and we don't want you in charge any longer." Period.
