Good for you, Senator Gregg

It's great to see someone taking a stand against Obamessiah's draconian style of running the country. No, Senator Gregg didn't step down from consideration for Commerce Secretary because of unpaid taxes, like so many other nominees lately. Instead he stepped down because he took a stand for his principles. Unlike the RINOs who are enabling the democrats to put America one step closer to ruin with the "super duper triple-dog top secret" stimulus bill by aligning their votes with the clueless left, he withdrew his nomination over Obama's plan to have the Census chief report directly to the president.

Since the Census would normally fall under Gregg's territory, he decided that he wasn't going to just stand there and let this happen. So he made it a matter of public record that he was stepping down for that reason, and rode off into the sunset. Good for you, Senator Gregg. Hopefully more will follow you instead of selling themselves out for the temporary power they wield because their vote is key to a particular bill that Obama wants passed really, really, really, really badly.



Incidentally, the rest of the Republicans in Congress are not sitting on their laurels about this Census issue either. House leader John Boehner (R-OH) and Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA) put Obamessiah on notice via press conference that they will challenge in Federal court any attempt to have Census controlled or directed by anyone in the White House. See the video. Take a moment (yes now!) and send these two a "You ROCK!" message through their web sites:

House Minority Leader John Boehner

Congressman Darrell Issa


Meanwhile, in typical lapdog fashion, whenever Obamessiah doesn't want to stand in front of a microphone and confirm that what is being alleged is true, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY)

volunteered to refute Boehner and Issa's claims by trying to merely deny it, apparently thinking that words speak louder than actions (in line with the theory that if a democrat says something is true or false, then it must just be the case). Maloney would be wise to come to terms with the fact that Gregg cited this to be the case and was his reason for withdrawing his name from consideration, so trying to lie to save face for Obamessiah doesn't always work.

I'm sure that the left-wing media will also try to put their spin on it. Perhaps Gregg will be called "Worse Person in the World" by uber-whiner and Obamessiah left-wing bishop Keith Olbermann...but really, who cares? MSNBC is in the ratings gutter...last time I checked, he was flailing behind Larry King...

oh yeah. like recent polls of Americans show over 2/3 strongly behind the stimulus. Republics are out out touch on this one. The last election demonstrated this. If there isn't something more annoying that a sore loser, is an idelogical sore loser who can't compromise. The train has left the station (at least by my count, more than 7 million plurality). Take a deep breath, at least the county will not be governed by someone taking orders from "high above" (it didn't work before)

So we should do everything according to polls? I guess when you have no moral or personal convictions, then go with what people tell you to do...because, you know, that is the true sign of leadership.

Johnnyb, Is it my assumtion that we Republican should give President Obama everything he asked for even if it violates the constitution? I'm wonder which is more patroitic standing up and saying something, or compromising you values? Just wondering?
