Pitchforks and tar and feathers, anyone? Could be. The American people are pretty fed up at this point with high energy prices and the fact that the Dems went on vacation without even a cursory attempt at fixing the problem.
And now, Pelosi shows her ultra-Socialist side by hinting that there could be a special session of Congress in which every issue on her Socialist agenda will be discussed but not the one issue causing Americans the most grief today. John Boehner made a pretty profound comment about that:
From the Chicago Tribune blogs:
|“She’s gonna bring us back and not deal with it?” asked the Ohio Republican, as quoted by Politico. “The American people are gonna hang her.”
Count me in as one of those who will be wielding a pitchfork in front of the Capital soon.
But, the Dems are never the type of party to pass up an opportunity to say something stupid, as evidenced by House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD):
|[T]he Maryland Democrat said. “I hope the Minority Leader will apologize for his remarks, and work with Democrats in a bipartisan, constructive manner to increase our domestic oil supply, invest in renewable energy and end our dependence on foreign oil.”
Memo to Steny: bipartisan efforts can only be made when both parties are present in Congress and both parties are discussing the same issue.
