Let me get this straight. Bush lied and appointed cronies to key positions
and SOMEHOW it's the Democrats fault for not stopping him and the Republicans. Never mind that he lied and showed false evidence to Congress. It's their fault for not stopping him. Never nind that ANYONE who didn't support the war in 2003 was called UnAmerican. Never mind that they've been riding one of the worst days in recent history for many of us (9/11) as a political battering ram until it was worn down to a nub. Do you know how long it took for me to even conceive that was what they were doing? It was beyond me that they could be so evil and calculating with an event that should have brought us together.

But somehow NOW that the war is going to hell and everyone is starting to know it, it's the Democrats fault for not stopping Bush.

Tucker Carlson is an ass.

And another thing. Whichever Republican said that it was the Dems fault for not stopping the appointment Brown -- you're an ass too. What ever happened to elections having consequences and people deserving up or down votes blah, blah, blah.

OH! I get so PISSED!

.... ahem... you may return now to your regularly scheduled message board.

2. Don't forget, anytime the Dems blocked anything they were OBSTRUCTIONISTS.
Wasn't that long ago, if you opposed letting the prez do whatever he wanted, you were a horrible nasty obstructionist and not patriotic to boot.

9. Not to mention the Republicans only believe in personal responsibility
When they're the ones who don't have to be personally responsible.

3. It's like someone smashing themselves in the face with a frying pan
and then blaming you for not stopping them.

8. I've been thinking they're like a bully who's finally gotten themselves
in trouble.

So they're pointing at the kid who's been getting beat up all this time and shouting "It's his fault. He LET me do it."

10. bush isn't the only drunk (dry or not) in the GOP. Their whole litany
of first disparaging DEMS who dared stand against their agenda and now blaming the DEMS who didn't is a familiar routine to any of us who have ever dealt with a drunk.

No matter what you do it's wrong. No matter what they do, it's your fault. You can't reason with them. The only way to deal with them is to take their keys away so they don't slaughter anyone on the highway of life and throw their asses out of your life.

A recovering alcoholic should be commended and offered friendship. An irresponsible drunk should be disarmed and tossed out. Can't help someone who simply chooses to duck reality.

11. Ah you must realize
You cannot reason or argue with these people. Facts are worthless and justice is not something they understand. All you can do is destroy them. The means for that are up to debate.

13. This doesn't happen just in the States
I worked with a lot of these people here in Canada. Whenever I brought up logical points, they just sputtered and said, (basically), "Clenis!!11!!!). I am abbreviating the conversation some what. They had no defence to the allegations. But they WERE RIGHT BECAUSE THEY HAD GAWD!11!1!! ON THE'RE SIDE!!!!111!!.

And I used the misspellings on purpose. I am so happy to be shut of these idiots. If you dare, look up "Ezra Levant", "Merle Terlesky", "Sean McKinsley" and "Matthew Johnston" on Google Canada. You will be disgusted that such scum actually had/have such power in my country.

15. How embarrassing for God.
I liked the Lincoln quote Kerry used, the one that said he'd rather be on God's side than say that God was on his side.

16. It can't POSSIBLY be *'s fault, or the Repubs -
See, God talks to *, and the Rethugs are so godly and all. Nope,
must be someone else's fault, anyone else's fault. :sarcasm:

17. And Democrats hate Christians doncha know.


Well, the answer WAS no, after all.

Or at least "I want the Republicans to face the music." That's what I'm hoping, anyway.

21. The repug genius is always putting everyone else in a lose lose situation.
They are masters at it. Dems could not win either way they went.
