Democrats Speaking Out

A lot of bloggers, readers here and commenters at other blogs complain that the Democrats don’t speak out enough. I think what is going on is that they are speaking out, every day, and the media is not covering it. Meanwhile the Right gets full-time media coverage of their crap. For example, John Conyers has been posting regularly at Daily Kos. (This and this, just today.) And Senator Reid said this today: Reid Lays Out Reform Agenda,

Time and again, the American people have seen George Bush and the Republican leadership choose between their partisan interests and the people’s interest. And every time, they have chosen an ideological agenda over an American agenda.
[. . .]Six moths have passed since this Republican Congress began and here’s their record:
They spent precious days trying to overturn constitutional principles.
They tried to overturn the decisions of courts and duly elected legislatures in order to insert themselves into one family’s tragedy in Florida.
They all-but disbanded the House Ethics Committee in order to protect the Republican leader from scrutiny — but then were forced to reverse themselves under public pressure.
But perhaps the greatest abuse of power is to have the ability to help but choose to do nothing.

They ARE speaking out. Tell me, do you see any of this covered in the press?

  1. There’s a lot of that going on. The media rarely covers the Dems speaking out about anything. Equally interesting to me is the redefinition of “Christian” by the media. The word Christian now seems only to apply to the radical fundamentalists, the more radical and the farther removed from traditional Christianity the better. The mainstream churches and the other fundamentalist groups not in the Republican pocket can scream their heads off (and they are) and nobody knows it.

  2. They spent precious days trying to overturn constitutional principles.
    Lie. The filibuster is not a constitutional principle since it was not placed in the constitution and only started about a hundred years after the drafting of the document.
    They all-but disbanded the House Ethics Committee in order to protect the Republican leader from scrutiny — but then were forced to reverse themselves under public pressure.
    Lie. Tom Delay says he wants to face the committe, it is the Democrats who will not convene it due to the fact that many Dems will also face similar ethics charges. But, Nancy Pelosi does not think Dems should be charged even if they did the crime.
    Is that all you lefties got, Lies?
