12. I'm cringing a bit
It's becoming more and more obvious the "Rushicans" do not want to be bi-partisan, and it makes me cringe to say this - but "either they are with us or against us"

With the problems left by the bush-cheney-GOP error, this is no time to play political games for political gains.

The rushicans have had two solutions to every problem. Domestically - their panecea is to cut taxes. On the foreign issues - it's drop bombs. Neither of which has worked well for us over the past eight years.

It's admirable to reach out a hand - but when that hand is slapped away, maybe it's time to say 'screw you' and "go it alone". :cringe: :cringe:
