Absolute Moral Authority

Because plain old moral authority just wasn’t good enough — a mesablue production

Did we say the most ethical ever?

Posted by mesablue on May 22, 2007

We meant, the most nutbag crazy — ever.

Gotta hand it to the Dems. Not only have they not kept a single promise that they made in the mid-terms, they are cranking the unethical and the crazy up to new levels.

Most recently John (I’ll take the money — later/ABSCAM) Murtha threatened a Republican House member — on the floor.

From Hot Air:

Powerful Democrat Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania threatened to deny any further spending projects to a Republican who challenged him over an earmark, his antagonist [Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) has charged — a potential violation of House rules…


Rogers turned the tables later that night by saying he would propose a reprimand of Murtha for violating House rules…


According to the draft resolution, Murtha shouted at Rogers on the House floor Thursday afternoon for offering a motion last week to expose $23 million Murtha requested in an intelligence bill.


The Pennsylvania Democrat requested the money to prevent the administration from shuttering the National Drug Intelligence Center in Johnstown, Pa. — which sits in Murtha’s district.


“I hope you don’t have any earmarks in the defense appropriations bills because they are gone and you will not get any earmarks now and forever,” Murtha told Rogers on the House floor, according to the draft transcript supplied to The Politico.


“This is not the way we do things here — and is that supposed to make me afraid of you?” Rogers replied.


“That’s the way I do it,” Murtha said.

This week the Dem’s, who if you remember, promised the most ethical congress “ever” — voted not to reprimand Murtha for obviously violating House rules.

AP via Hot Air:

WASHINGTON – House Democrats rejected a Republican bid Tuesday to reprimand Rep. John Murtha, a senior lawmaker accused of threatening legislative reprisals against a GOP member who had crossed him.



Before and after the largely party-line vote, which caused some Democrats discomfort, Republicans taunted Democratic leaders about their campaign promises to run a more ethical and open Congress.


The House voted 219-189 to kill the Republicans’ motion to reprimand Murtha, a Pennsylvania Democrat, Iraq war foe and close ally of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.


Two Democrats — Earl Blumenauer of Oregon and Jim Cooper of Tennessee — voted against killing the motion. One Republican — Tim Murphy of Pennsylvania — voted for the motion to table, or kill, the proposed reprimand.


Murtha, known for his bluff manner and fondness of pork barrel projects, did not dispute claims that he charged across the House floor May 17 to confront Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich. Rogers had tried unsuccessfully to strike a $23 million Murtha earmark — a targeted spending item — for a drug intelligence center in Murtha’s district.

Let’s see, we’ve got a Dem congressman caught with $90,000.00 in bribe sting money in his freezer — nothing happens to him. Pelosi gets the minimum wage increased everywhere except a little island that her contibutors have a big stake in. Feinstein’s husband is tied to more defense spending than we’ve ever seen. An judge impeached for bribery (by congress) who later runs for congress as a Dem, of course, is almost given the chairmanship of an incredibly important intelligence committee. Earmark spending is at unbelievable levels. Murtha’s been a scumbag forever.

Oh, and the Dem’s violated a bunch of rules by taking spring break junkets to exotic beaches on military jets — at $10,000.00 an hour– without including Republicans. Not saying Rebublicans should have gone, they wouldn’t have, members of congress are not allowed to authorize the use of government equipment or funds for trips without making them bi-partisan. A major ethical violation.

The list goes on.

Will anything be done about this?

Not with the inmates running the asylum.

I’d forgotten how absolutely bugshit crazy the Dems can be when they are in power.

Good thing it won’t last very long. They lost the last time when the American people finally said, “enough is enough.”

It’s amazing that the Dem’s could get so many people thinking that way so soon after taking back the reigns of power.

Same idiots. Different year.

    Feinstein’s husband – not Boxer’s.

  4. I thought feinsteins husband was the resteraunteer, and boxers was he defense contractor.

    I think that Mesa was correct in his first statement, I might decide to research, but not likely. I think feinstein is the one with defense contractor husband, boxer is the one with the service industry contractts.

    I might have that upside down, but no matter what? it’s a discgrace, especially since SF hates military, I hope those esteemed senators haven’t defied the wishes of their constituents and used government (miliatary mostly) health care at any time in their tenure, cuz you know, they are principled.

    Mikey, you are right. I went back and forth on who it was. I’m going to edit it.
