Quick question: name one thing the Downercrats have done during their five months in power in the US Congress.
Ten seconds to think. Need more time?
Don't bother..because here is a list - a COMPLETE list - of all of the Downercrats' accomplishments so far.
Pardon us while we laugh.
NOTE on the Democrats’ list of accomplishments
As of today, only 26 bills have been signed into law; the war funding bill that was carried by Republican votes will make 27.
The “new direction” Democrats have taken in the last five months breaks down as follows:
13 BILLS TO NAME FEDERAL PROPERTY & BUILD A ROAD
H.R. 49 - To name the “Gerald R. Ford, Jr. Post Office Building”
H.R. 335 - To name the “Gale W. McGee Post Office”

H.R. 433 - To name the “Scipio A. Jones Post Office Building”
H.R. 514 - To name the “Sergeant Lea Robert Mills Brooksville Aviation Branch Post Office”
H.R. 521 - To name the “Lane Evans Post Office Building”
H.R. 544 - To name the “Santiago E. Campos United States Courthouse”

H.R. 1681 – American National Red Cross Governance Modernization Act
S. 494 – NATO Freedom Consolidation Act
S. 1002 – Older Americans Reauthorization Technical Corrections Act
That's it. Zero, zip, zilch.
We said it before, and we say it again: whoever gets the Republican Presidential nomination in 2008 should run against the "do nothing Congress." The liberal media will have no way of defending these losers. No way. Not with this kind of record after five months.
