As soon as the Democrats took over the majority, they displayed a reckless disregard for our country and our servicemen and women. Their continual assaults against our president are contemptible at best.
Recently, Democrats refused to pass a bill to give needed money to support our combat troops overseas. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, according to the news, had to lay off contractors to make up for the loss of money denied by the Democrats. It was reported that Pelosi said the issue would not be addressed again until January, leaving the troops twisting in the wind.
The fact that our military personnel are being used by the Democrats to make the president suffer is not only deplorable, but it is an act of treason.
By refusing to back our president and support troops in a time of war, power-crazed Democrats have committed a serious abuse of power.
Instead of acting in the best interest of our country and our troops, Democrats have chosen to act in the interest of their party, while trying to undermine Republicans.
The Democrats have belittled a seated president at every turn. They have refused to take seriously the fact that our country is at war against a deadly enemy.
What really gets my goat is how our country picks its leaders. Cops have to be certified to carry a gun. Doctors, lawyers, electricians and plumbers need licenses to practice their trades. Yet politicians, who have control of an entire country and its people, don't need any credentials. Any nut job with backing can get into politics and lead our country into oblivion -- like the aforementioned Democrats.
There should be new qualification guidelines implemented in our Constitution for politicians to seek office. As for Reid and Pelosi, they should be recalled.
