That’s essentially the agenda that Nancy Pelosi announced last week if Democrats announced last week. Here’s a glimpse of that agenda:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said in an interview last week that a Democratic House would launch a series of investigations of the Bush administration, beginning with the White House’s first-term energy task force and probably including the use of intelligence in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq. Pelosi denied Republican allegations that a Democratic House would move quickly to impeach President Bush. But, she said of the planned investigations, “You never know where it leads to.”

For those conservatives who plan on sitting out this election to send a message, think about what message you’ll be sending. That message would essentially be “I didn’t get what I want so I’m quitting. I’m letting the Democrats impeach President Bush. I’m letting the Democrats lose the war on Islamofascism.”

Before you do that, you’d better ask yourself these questions:

Do I really want Democrats losing the War on Terror?
Do I really think that life will improve when taxes are raised?
Do I really think that life will improve if President Bush is investigated and impeached?

If that’s the message you want to send, then you need to do a ton of soul-searching between now and November. It’s time to act like adults, not spoiled little brats. It’s time to remember the positive things that’ve happened the past 6 years. It’s time to think of the security President Bush’s prosecution of the war on Islamofascism has brought us.

Have there been mistakes? Yes, and not only tiny ones. But will life be better with a Speaker Pelosi letting the tax cuts lapse? Ask your local small businessman or woman that. Will life be better if the NSA intercept program is defunded? As yourself that when the next terrorist plot comes to fruition.
