Tell it like it is Democrats:
Bush, Cheney and their cronies are WAR PROFITEERS. They have mislead the country into an UNNECESSARY war. They are making MILLIONS at the expense of America's soldiers.

Repeat as necessary.

2. DEMS - co-conspirators
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 08:59 AM by gulfcoastliberal
Like Feinsteins hubby Blum & Perini, voting for the war for political image and corporate contributions, etc. Money has ruined the political system. Don't expect much from the dems. They've had hundreds of opportunities to get this admin yet always roll over and do as the King orders. It's all about the $$$

4. Just look at the laws they helped to get passed in the past few years.
Bankruptcy
Medicare/Pharma bill
No Child Left Behind
Patriot Act I and II

The list goes on - they did not put up a fight to protect us, because they would have lost their most important fight - getting re-elected or getting a cushy lobbying job afterwards.

5. As others said Democracy died in 2000, now the corpse is stinking

Unless Americans rise up en masse to demand fundamental change, we're doomed to neo-feudalism.

6. Bankruptyc pushed by Biden & Carper, voted for by Hillary, no filibusters
of the Patriot Act, no filibusters on the tax cuts, no filibusters on anything that really mattered. Wow, they filibustered 7 nominees over 5+ years. What brave souls. :sarcasm:

7. With those filibusters, they gave the illusion of looking out for us.
The worst part is that the repubs could use their voting records against them.

They could use the logic that "hey we're the party of values, none of us wants to see you in chains because you can't pay your medical bills - those rotten Dems voted for these proposals. They weren't thinking of you. Where were their values?"

It's no wonder the Dems have been getting creamed.

Had the same discussion just hours before the show aired.
