Hope and Change Scorecard – Video Added

First Madam Speaker Nancy Pelosi promised us the most honest and ethical Congress (video below) in history. Since then William Jefferson (D-LA) was found with cash in the freezer, Ways and Means Chairman Charlie Rangle (D-NY) laden with tax problems, a major benefactor of Jack Murtha (D-PA) gets raided by the Feds, not to mention Chris Dodd (D-Countrywide) still hasn’t quite explained his relationship with failed lender Countrywide.

The Obama administration promised us a new direction. He promised us a new way of doing business in Washington. He promised an open and honest Government.

Since then his Secretary of Commerce nominee Bill Richardson (D-NM) withdraws his name from consideration as the Feds investigate what role he may have played in a pay for play scandal. His new Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner, the man who overseas the IRS, slides through on party lines, even though its learned he failed to pay his taxes in 2001 … oh and 2002, 2003,2004,2005 … well you get the idea. His Attorney General, the law man in chief, the man who recommended Bill Clinton pardon 12 Puerto Rican terrorists and the FBI’s most wanted arms merchant, will be asked to investigate the Bush Administration on … ummm … the war on terror. And after telling the world no lobbyists in his administration … he quickly appoints two lobbyists to … his administration.


Here’s the latest in our roundup of ethical Democrats.

Feel free to add anything. Oh … and before you think of adding any Republicans … they didn’t make the promise … and we have already given them their comeuppance.

And just to remind you … remember what she said in 2006. The relevant portion starts at :53. Try not to gag.

    The Democrats will have "The most open, the most honest,  and most ethical Congress in History."  When wil this event occur?????

    Nancy Pelosi…step back from the mirror as you repeat those those lies…I cast the Pinnochio spell on you.  Kleenex can be found in aisle 8, right next to the Depends and Toilet Paper and across for Preperation H section.  I am sure you are familiar with this aisle.

    You are misunderstanding the meaning of change. When Obama talks about change he is talking about those coins that are left in your pocket when he is done fleecing you.
