Tom DeLay's Getting it Right
They say you only get one chance to make first impression, and right now, I’m a little worried about how the new Republican majorities in the House and Senate are coming off in the very first days of the 114th Congress.
After years of deception and cover-up, the American people, through the hard work of their congressional representatives, finally learned the ugly truth this week about terrible acts done in their name but without their knowledge. While many of those responsible continue to defend their handiwork, the revelations are sure to leave a permanent stain on those in government who played any role in the atrocities revealed.
