CONTRACT From AMERICA NEWSLETTER! "DO YOU LIKE THE EFFORTS FROM AMERICA?"
We are on the 'CONTRACT FROM AMERICA NEWSLETTER' 'list-serve', and today we received their most recent rendering. "Do You LIKE The Efforts From AMERICA?
Comments were requested. Here's ours.
Your efforts are laudable. It's your results that concern us. There haven't been any! The 112th Congress seems to be business as usual, only more so.
It seems the establishment GOP has taken complete control over 'contract from america' affiliates. The 'affiliates' seem to have been hog-tied with duct tape pasted over their mouths and held hostage in the 'prayer caucus' corral until it's time to vote. When voting time comes, they are rolled out and vote how they're told to vote.
The 'contract' spokespeople are your embarrassment. Case in point, Michelle Bachmann who gave a near incomprehensible State of the Union rebuttal message a week or so ago.
It would seem that an organization with their first tenant reading, "TO PROTECT THE U.S. CONSTITUTION" would have a spokesperson with some knowledge about the Constitution.
Bachmann's knowledge and presentation demonstrated a pathetic ignorance of the basic document 'The Contract' folks say deserves first protection.
Did the 'Contract from America' organization sponsor and fund Bachmann's peripheral rebuttal message as she implied? Is so, there is serious WORK to be done!
