Out, out damn SOB!
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, November 09, 2006

Seems as if the economic know-nothing is going to evict the SOB:
"Mr. Cheney enjoys an office on the second floor of the House of Representatives that historically has been designated for the Ways and Means Committee chairman," explained Rangel, who vaulted to the top slot of the tax-writing panel - one of the most powerful in Congress - when Democrats rolled over the GOP to take control of the House.

"I talked to [future House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi about it this morning," a giddy Rangel crowed during a news conference at his Harlem office.

"I'm trying to find some way to be gentle as I restore the dignity of that office," chuckled Rangel. "You gotta go, you gotta go."
Yes indeed, more of that lovely tone of bi-partisan cooperation. Heh ... yeah, I see this all coming together now, don't you? We'll just be covered up by sunshine and unicorns come January.

It just shows to go ya that many of them (federal politicians) are petty and childish. What is it going to take to get serious adults in office who aren’t interested in power and prestige? Cap, for the love of God, spare me the public financing.

Cheney was offered an office by Hastert, breaking with 2 centuries of tradition. Why should be allowed to keep it? He’s not going to be writing laws for a Democrat-led House like he did for the slavish GOP house (sorry, does that upset your delicate racial sensibilities?), so his presence is unnecessary. It’s not childish to ask him to vacate; it’s childish to make a fuss about it.

What the hell was Cheney doing with an office in the House in the first place?

I don’t see why anyone should expect the Democrats to be waving the flang of bipartisanship and singing kumbayah with the republicans.

I didn’t hear that much whining about the republicans lack of bipartisan consideration when they were walking all over the democrats for the last 6 years. There was only the occaisional "Oh yes, and this measure is BiPartisan, we let the democrats pretend they had a voice in this measure, isn’t that nice of us."

The republicans were viciously partisan, I could list their miriad of disgusting tricks, but why bother. They should have thought harder about what would happen when they lost.

Uh, because they’re the ones saying they want "bi-partisan cooperation", or did you miss that part of the victory speeches?

It’s easier when he writes legislation for the House, probably. That won’t be a matter of concern anymore.

So let him leave and everyone will go about their business.

I guess he is still afraid that terrorists will crash a plane into him? ;3

I can see why, since demoncrats have been bashing republicans for not being bipartisan enough. But yes, I won’t be fooled after listening to everyone on the left screaming about how Bush is like/worse-than Hitler or the devil or whatever bad things.

Nobody was innocent. There were all ba#tards. If you think the democrats were all sweetness and light and the republicans were all bad then please send me some of what you are smoking because that is some good sh$t.

Because you know we could come back on you with many more Democrat tricks?

The Democrats did absolutely nothing cooperative for six years, they declared the 2000 election illegitimate, they acted nice after 9/11 for about two weeks, they opposed EVERYTHING not pertaining to the war, then they opposed that too.
And they once again acted childish after the 2004 election.

So save your self righteousness.

Very well. If you endorse the Dems acting the same way don’t whine like a b*tch when the GOP uses all the weapons Reid and Pelosi used for the past 6 years, including a filibuster.

Goose, gander and all that

And the Republicans 15 seat majority in the House and 1 seat in the Senate was significant?

Remember when the R’s had a defacto tie in the Senate with Cheney making the majority and they acted like they had such a mandate that Jim Jeffords gave them the finger and caucused with the Dems?

The bar is set VERY low, Dem’s can be complete a$$holes and they still won’t be in the same league as the R’s have been for the past few years.

I am still hoping the Dem’s will be more adult about it, but I am just pointing out the reality.

Oh, and...
Cap, for the love of God, spare me the public financing.
Just as you have been spared from having a genuinely representative government, I will spare you from solutions that would accomplish that end.

Cap
