As the United States government goes around the world telling other countries and their leadership how to conduct their affairs we continue to permit our own governance to exhibit hypocrisy.
At the top of our Congressional leadership we have House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) who have become two of the most hypocritical partisan government officials in modern times. Repeatedly each has used the harshest language against their opposition despite the fact that they once promised open non-partisanship with their new Democratic majority controlled House and Senate operations.
Your Commander is totally embarrassed to have these two obstructionists representing my interests and our government to the entire world. For two elected officials who have taken an oath of office to function ethically, and in a partisan manner, we have seen just the opposite behavior. Just answer one question for me. Why have Pelosi and Reid not forced their respective Ethics Committees to render a judgment concerning Congressman Charles Rangel (D-NY) or Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT) failure to meet their tax obligations? Apparently it is more important for them to protect their majority votes than to enforce ethical and legal behavior.
That's just the tip of the iceberg insofar as too many of the current Washington crowd are concerned. Improprieties abound within the Beltway!
How can there be any legitimacy to anything the United States proposes world-wide when we have such complicit Congressional leadership? We all should look with shame upon the voters of both California and Nevada for permitting these two corrupt federal government individuals to continue to feed at the public trough.
