This Christmas Harry Reid is Scrooge

This Christmas, Senate Majority leader Harry Reid is Scrooge.  Actually, that’s not fair.  Scrooge at least gave Bob Cratchett Christmas off.  Harry Reid is so distrustful of President Bush that he will be having a Senator stay behind to gavel the empty chamber to order and prevent The President from passing any recess appointments before he leaves office in January.  For shame Mister Reid.  The government must continue to run even while Barrack Obama sits around doing nothing productive.

In fact, George Bush has appointed over 30 people to positions since the election in November and these people will help to lead the Obama administration with their experience in Washington.  “Given the fact that the Senate was so intransigent on so many nominations, we certainly would have liked to have used the option of recess appointments,” Said Bush spokesperson Tony Fratto. “This process is broken, absolutely broken. The majority leader has taken it to the point of abuse.”

One move Bush is making that I’m particularly excited about is his appointment of many non-scientists to permanent federal jobs with responsibility for making or administering scientific policies.  I like that Bush isn’t afraid to shake up the liberal atheistic scientific community with people who haven’t been indoctrinated with scientific propaganda against a Christian belief system.  As Sarah Palin said on the campaign trail, “How do we know its global warming and not God just hugging us closer.”

Bush has also been working tirelessly behind the  scenes to ease up ridiculous safeguards on industry limiting the amount of pollution that’s acceptable in our drinking water and redefining pollution in general.  Bush has also appointed several industry lobbyists to watchdog positions knowing that the government will only benefit from the other point of view.

Mr. Fratto pointed out that Mr. Bush’s term is a full four years — not 3 years, 10 months and 4 days — and the president will not pull punches as he makes potentially still more appointments. “We actually do have not just the authority,” he said, “we have an obligation to do what we think is best for the country up until 11:59 a.m. on January 20.”  Perhaps, he can do something about some of those silly air quality safeguards as well in the next month and a half.
