Republicans Can't Be Trusted To Lead

If there is one overall thing we can take away from the past five years it is that Republicans can't be trusted to lead.

First they mislead us into war with Iraq. Then they failed the people of the Gulf Coast during Hurricane Katrina.

And now it has come to light that top Republican leadership covered up the fact that Congressman Mark Foley sexually preyed on young male congressional pages. How in the world can they let that slide? We are talking about young children who are entrusted to members of Congress to learn about our nation's government. They put their political interests over that of the well being of the children they had been entrusted. It is disgusting pure and simple.

When the Republican were elected to power, they said they were going to usher in a new age of responsibility. What a joke.

Clearly is time for a change.

It is time for a new generation of leadership.
