The Democrats made a lot of promises to get elected in 2006. They are currently in the process of breaking of them.
This is an embarrassing time to be a Democrat.
Promises should be kept.
The Democrats managed to complete the items they wanted to complete in the first "100 hours."
One of their main promises was to modify the rules for lobbyists and the rules for "earmarks." Neither has been changed and business has continued as usual.
Another one of their promises was that they would listen to the minority. They broke this rule during their first 100 hours and many local Democrats justified it as being necessary.
The Drudge Report has a frightening developing story that had better prove untrue; otherwise, The Democrats are likely to lose their majority.
PELOSI LOWERS THE BOOM
After losing a string of embarrassing votes on the House floor because of procedural maneuvering, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has decided to change the current House Rules to completely shut down the floor to the minority. The Democratic Leadership is threatening to change the current House Rules regarding the Republican right to the Motion to Recommit or the test of germaneness on the motion to recommit.
This would be the first change to the germaneness rule since 1822.
In protest, the House Republicans are going to call procedural motions every half hour.
I am especially looking forward to reading Jeff Pruitt's comment on this.
I hope other Democrats and liberals chime in.
It looks to me as if Nancy Pelosi is trying to set herself up as a Dictator. Lets hope Drudge is wrong.
