A change Of Season

A Change of Seasons?

I am not sure if this is a systematic sign of a change of seasons in Washington. Perhaps it is a shape of things to come. Perhaps not, we shall see. We can hope cant we.

Today, it was a announced that Rep. Parker Griffith, a freshman Democrat from Alabama, is switching parties to become a Republican.

“I have become increasingly concerned that the bills and policies pushed by the current Democratic leadership are not good for north Alabama or our nation,” Griffith said, “I am announcing today that I’m joining the Republican conference immediately. “Our nation is at a crossroads and I can no longer align myself with a party that continues to pursue legislation that is bad for our country, hurts our economy, and drives us further and further into debt.”

Griffith’s departure means the Democrats will still hold a 257 seats advantage over the Republican’s 178. But the Democratic majority is expected to shrink by at least two seats again in January. Reps. Robert Wexler, D-Fla., and Neil Abercrombie, D-Hawaii, are expected to resign.

Lets all hope this is the beginning of a trend toward a better future for all of us.
