Beer Monday Linkfest: Democrats Want To Work With Bush

And a good start to the work week. How 'bout a beer? One of the darlings of the left brings it

See, the Democrats do want to work with President Bush. But, it is a one way affair. Remember Harry Reid saying this?

"Rather than making all the threats that (Bush) has, let's work with him and see if he can give us some ideas how we can satisfy the wishes of a majority of the Senate, the majority of the House and move forward," Reid said.

That was less then a week ago. Now we find out

Even as their confrontation with President Bush over Iraq escalates, emboldened congressional Democrats are challenging the White House on a range of issues — such as unionization of airport security workers and the loosening of presidential secrecy orders — with even more dramatic showdowns coming soon.

Despite the threats (of vetos), Democratic lawmakers expect to open new fronts against the president when they return from their spring recess, including politically risky efforts to quickly close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; reinstate legal rights for terrorism suspects; and rein in what Democrats see as unwarranted encroachments on privacy and civil liberties allowed by the USA Patriot Act.

What happened to working with the president? And you simply have to love what they agenda is. Will they take the vacationers from G'itmo in to their own homes? And, yes, let's rein in what they voted for. Twice.

"We have a very consequential and just system of justice. To create a system that is a dual system but not just is not acceptable, and that's Guantanamo," said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).

Umm, Dianne? The inmates are not American citizens. Why are you more concerned about them then protecting American's?

And Tom Cole, the Oklahoma Republican, warned Democrats not to tamper with the national security laws that Bush secured after the 2001 terrorist attacks. "Americans don't want to reopen the programs that have protected them since 9/11," he said.

Democrats apparently do. Go figure. That is one reason Leon Penetta has recommended that Democrats stay on their normal turf, and national security is not their normal turf.

Democrats are going to go after the Bush tax cuts, as well. I'm not surprised.
