IT'S NOT AS IF ANYONE TOOK THEM SERIOUSLY:

Democrats Reject Key 9/11 Panel Suggestion (Jonathan Weisman, November 30, 2006, Washington Post)

It was a solemn pledge, repeated by Democratic leaders and candidates over and over: If elected to the majority in Congress, Democrats would implement all of the recommendations of the bipartisan commission that examined the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

But with control of Congress now secured, Democratic leaders have decided for now against implementing the one measure that would affect them most directly: a wholesale reorganization of Congress to improve oversight and funding of the nation's intelligence agencies.


Diogenes couldn't find a Democrat who actually intended to implement all the nonsense that commission came up with.

Will we now see the Jersey Girls wailing on the Capitol steps, asking Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid why they won't protect us?

In the Good 'Ol Days™, the Dems at least waited until they were sworn in to start abadoning their promises (stupid as they might be). Now they don't even wait for November to end.
