Shays Explodes the Myths of Bipartisan and Moderate Republicans

So much for the supposed bipartisan and moderate Republican myths, as Chris Shays says that the Republicans couldn't even reach across to the supposed moderates in their own party...

Shays in the Courant:

"Nothing changes for me," the 4th District Republican said. "In fact, it may be easier to get my bills passed."

After all, he figured, "there will be a number of issues Democrats favor that the Republican majority was not willing to take up."

You must mean more moderate issues? And in a real bipartisan forum too? Wow! Thanks for clearing that up Chrissy boy.

I say "supposed moderates" in the Republican party because there is nothing moderate about a Republican that labels the sickly Bush administrations' sanctioned TORTURE as a "sex ring" and only an isolated incident despite the overwhelming evidence that he is wrong on both counts.

Anything else about Republicans that are supposedly bipartisan?

Top candidates are current Majority Leader John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, conservative leader Mike Pence, R-Ind., and current Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Joe Barton, R-Texas. Shays opposed Boehner for majority leader earlier this year.

"I'm not thrilled with any of them," he said.

"Boehner is someone who's more willing to reach out to Democrats, but my problem with him is he's one of the guys who didn't want to deal with the ethical challenges facing our Congress."

Golly Chrissy? Why didn't you talk more about this when Republicans were in charge of Congress and could have done something about the lack of a bipartisan effort by Republicans?

Too little, too late you GOP quack. Enjoy your pork barrel lame-duck session. But remember that Pelosi will be cutting much of the corporate fat from your future when she enacts her Congressional reforms.

I wonder if Chrissy and the rest of his ilk will show real bipartisan support in helping Speaker Pelosi to clean up Congress?
