Tax dollars support GOP

Anyone who finds this story astounding is really checked out.

From McClatchy:
"WASHINGTON - Top Commerce and Treasury department officials appeared with Republican candidates and doled out millions in federal money in battleground congressional districts and states after receiving White House political briefings detailing GOP election strategy.Political appointees in the Treasury Department received at least 10 political briefings from July 2001 to August 2006, officials familiar with the meetings said. Their counterparts at the Commerce Department received at least four briefings - all in the election years of 2002, 2004 and 2006."

No, no, no. Democrats do not do this and did not do it first. Throw that excuse out the window.

I also have been disappointed by the floundering Democrats. Get a spine for goodness sake. Forget politics as usual. Our country needs real governance for the first time in perhaps 15 years, and certainly seven.
