To show the severity of how broken Washington is . . . yesterday, on MSNBC's "Jansing and Company", California Representative Loretta Sanchez (D) said the following: "I've heard my own colleagues on the Republican side say, 'We want Obama to look bad. We don't care how bad the economy gets; we just want to win the election." BUT - AND HERE'S THE RUB - When asked who specifically says this, Sanchez responded "I don't . . . well, these are actual friends, who've said this happens in our conferences, and our groupings in our meetings."
THE POINT IS THIS . . . Either Ms. Sanchez is stating a falsehood (which is serious in itself), or she is stating direct knowledge of behavior bordering on treason - a political party conspiring to thwart the country's economic solvency for the purpose of personal gain - Yet she, and possibly other Democrats, are putting their colleagues before ethical and civic duties. There's a difference between people believing this is what the GOP is doing and having actual firsthand evidence of this. Just throwing it out there as a political shot is unacceptable; this demands investigation, and I have no problem throwing Sanchez and others out of the Congress for their inaction.
