||It must have been a media person, who launched the
term "shadow government". And many in the media make use of the term and
the spin "secret" Tom Daschle added to it.
This spin was the latest attempt to discredit the Bush administration.
There was nothing secret at this rotating system of a part of the Government
Management; it existed since the sixties, but sometimes you can fool some
of the people.
And it falls in line with the failed attempts to do so such as with
blaming the recession on Bush, diminishing budget surplus on Bush tax reduction,
Enron corrupting influence on Bush.
The words of Daschle are reflecting on Democrats who are concurring
and intervening on his behave. This will not be without effect on the mid
term election results.
The obstruction of the economic stimulus package, the scandalous un
Constitutional limitations on free speech contained in the finance reform
bill and the "Bickering" conformation shenanigans, will cost the Democrats
more than they aimed at gaining.
My advice to Daschle and the Democrats is:
Do the right thing; it is not smart to do the wrong thing; it does
not work! The problem is that you might not be able to distinguish between
right and wrong. You need a conscience to make that judgment. That kind
of handicap is not covered under the ADA bill.
