For Pelosi, this is all about power. She is beaming at the idea of getting "any suite she wants." She wants to push around the Republicans and the American people with her own brand of liberalism. She will continue to push a liberal agenda and hike our taxes. It is also about vengence. She wants to impeach President Bush, ostensibly for the war but in reality as retribution for the impeachment of Clinton.
National Defense is a low priority for the Democrats and they have shown time and again that they are unable to protect our citizens. I often think that we would be better off today if the 9/11 hijackers had missed the World Trade Center Towers and hit the Capitol instead. Those who remained would take the threat seriously but since it did not affect any of them, they do not care. It would have also solved the problem of them staying in office forever and we could have gotten a new crop of leaders who were not tarnished from years of corruption.
