Rude awakening

Robert Novak is appalled that "the self-confident Democratic leadership" wants to "function as a coordinate branch of government, not as friendly colleagues in the spirit of bipartisanship." He tuts tuts about the Democratic rebuff of Bush's call for a "new, bipartisan working group that will help us come together across party lines to win the war on terror."

Here's a newsflash Mr. President. Your party had four years to demonstrate the spirit of bipartisanship and they chose to shut out the Democratic Party completely. They regulated them to broom closets, scoffing up all the prime office space for themselves and used every procedural trick in the book to keep them out of the debate. And if they didn't work, they invented new rules to prevent the opposition's voice from being heard.

As my first husband was fond of saying, "Payback's a bitch." The White House and its loyal rubberstampers made the bed thinking they would never have to lie in it themselves. Pardon me, if I'm not crying now that they find the lumps in it not to their liking. If that's impolite -- well -- let's hear a round of applause for rude and realistic Democrats. It beats the hell out of hiding under the covers.

that was a dumb column. Novak phones a few like these in every once in a while, just to make everyone think he's still a republican. like he / anyone cares about the democrats rebuffing Bush's stupid committee.

I thought the Congress was suppose to be an equal branch of the Govt, not just a bunch of spongers?

Romunov - that's the traditional view. The Bush administration view is post 9/11. Bush gets to be big boss of everything under his theory.
