Maybe We Just Can't Handle the Truth ...
even when the truth is this in-your-face obvious:

The invasion of Iraq was justified, because Saddam Hussein had WMDs. They were never found because when he heard he was about to be attacked by US forces, Saddam decided to get rid of the very weapons he could have used to defend himself and retain control of his wealth and power.

Since landing in Baghdad, our troops have continually been hailed as liberators and barraged with sweets and flowers. The liberal media has just steadfastly refused to report it.

No one from this administration ever attempted to make a connection between 9-11 and Iraq, or Al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein. The millions of people who heard such statements are all delusional, and the videotapes of those words being spoken were all tampered with after-the-fact.

On-the-ground success in Iraq is directly proportionate to the number of magnetic yellow ribbons displayed on US trucks and cars.

Support the Troops is a snappy slogan, and was never proffered as administration policy.

Every prediction made by PNACers like Bill Kristol came to pass exactly as foreseen. Any statements proving the contrary were simply taken out of context by the left-leaning mainstream media.

The use of torture has resulted in the thwarting of thousands of plots against our country. The fact that the administration has never released details of same is in keeping with their usual stance of downplaying their many successes in the War on Terror.

Increased prices at the pump are necessary to offset the massive losses in oil company profits that have occurred since Bush took office.

We are currently experiencing a booming economy thanks to tax-cuts for the wealthy, who have invested their money in American businesses, thereby creating the new jobs and increased wealth all Americans now enjoy.

The sub-prime mortgage crisis is a direct result of experienced, well-established financial institutions being completely duped by a scam perpetrated by nave, inexperienced home buyers.

American children rank poorly in education as compared to children in other nations because all of the other countries kids are cheating on the tests.

The theory of global warming has been completely debunked by the fact that it still snows in the wintertime.

All fossils alleged to be more than 6,000 years old have been found to bear a Made by Satan to Fool You! label upon closer scrutiny a fact which has been covered-up by scientists for the past 6,000 years.

Larry Craig and Bob Allen are not gay. They were part of a special GOP sting operation set up to snare gay cops who hide out in public bathrooms hoping to force straight Republican men to convert to the gay lifestyle.

Flooding the US market with cheap, made-in-sweatshop products is a humane way of providing employment for tens of thousands of Chinese children who would otherwise be wasting their childhood by being unemployed.

All administration staffers should be protected from having to testify under oath on the basis of executive privilege in matters where the executive branch has denied any involvement whatsoever.

There is no correlation between investigations into GOP wrongdoing and sudden resignations. Family-values Republicans only give up their positions when overwhelmed by a desire to spend more time with their loved ones.

Despite the most frequent reasons cited for the breakdown of marriages being abuse, adultery, alcohol/drug addiction, etc., most marriages actually fail because a gay couple moved into the neighborhood.

There is nothing untoward about the awarding of no-bid government contracts to companies owned by administration family members and friends. The names of those companies were randomly picked out of a hat, and any association with Bush or Cheney is merely coincidental.

Despite the very lengthy list of Republicans who have been found guilty of corruption e.g. Duke Cunningham, Jack Abramoff, Dusty Foggo, et al they are all innocent. They were railroaded by mean-spirited Democrats, and were forced to perjure themselves and/or admit to crimes they did not commit.

Alberto Gonzales cannot remember attending a number of meetings he was noted as being present for. But he can remember, with complete clarity, what wasnt discussed at those same meetings.

Valerie Plame was a lowly desk-jockey at the CIA. Ironically, due to a rotating secretarial assignment pool, it was her turn to choose who to send on an all-important mission to investigate alleged purchases of yellow-cake in Niger.

George W. Bush is an intelligent, well-read, well-informed man. He only acts the buffoon to keep our nations enemies off-balance.

Dick Cheney hides himself in undisclosed locations in order to escape the constant intrusion of well-wishers, adoring fans, and autograph-seekers.

Jeff Gannons many visits to the White House were not of a personal nature. He just needed his WH press pass revalidated, which, due to the presidents busy schedule, often required waiting in line overnight.

Dana Perrino is not as dumb as she seems. If she was as dumb as she seems, a teleprompter flashing the words inhale/exhale would be clearly visible during televised briefing sessions.

Billions of dollars, millions of electronic records and communications, and countless hours of video and audio tapes have not gone missing during this administration. They are merely hiding in a corner of a dryer somewhere in a DC laundromat, under a pile of hundreds of thousands of long-lost socks.

The fact that federal spending on paper shredding has increased more than 600 percent since George W. Bush took office is merely reflective of the fact that he has received 600 percent more fan mail during his years in office than Clinton did.

Everything wrong with the country today can be directly linked to the actions of Bill Clinton, even the things that happened before he was born.

Everything right with the country today can be directly linked to the actions of Ronald Reagan, even the things that happened after he became a drooling, senile old man.

Any link between the current unprecedented national debt and control of government by the fiscally responsible Republicans has never been proven beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

All Gitmo detainees are guilty of all of the crimes they have never been charged with. Republicans who have been caught red-handed with their hands in the till are innocent victims of having been in the wrong place at the wrong time.

God always intended that American corporations have unfettered access to oil he was just so busy inventing the universe in six days, he totally forgot to put it underneath the most deserving country.

George W. Bush has staunchly adhered to the Constitution, if you include the recently-discovered footnotes that were written in crayon by an anonymous original-signers hand.

Laura Bush is not living in a prescription drug-induced dreamlike state she is just permanently bedazzled by her husbands wit, style, wisdom, and compassion for all of the people he has killed, maimed, orphaned or tortured.

Karl Rove is not attempting to rewrite history. He is simply offering an alternate theory to the concept that history should be based on things that actually happened.

Face it, we cant handle the truth.

What is wrong with US?

You're right!

What is wrong with us, indeed?

The scales have definitely fallen from your eyes...

And now they're falling from mine!

I must hurry up and re-register as a Republican...

And I'm sure you already have done so, right?


RIGHT?


RIGHT?

Well done...

18. Bullshit. Bush has protected us from precisely nothing...
...and has largely wrecked the country doing it.

Let me say it slowly for you: Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. Understand? Nothing.

Osama bin Laden is still at large, billions of dollars and thousands of lives are being wasted in Iraq for no reason.

And yet you 29%ers are still being Good Germans.

Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 07:30 PM by NanceGreggs
Too bad he didn't keep us safe from the FIRST ONE!!!

I guess a memo entitled Bin Laden Determined to Strike in the US was a little too vague to be taken seriously.

If only those presidential briefings had been presented in a coloring-book format, the WTC might still be standing today ...

The economy, the job market, the housing market, the dollar, the military, our international reputation, the constitution, the bill of rights, and freedom. (on edit: almost forgot destroying New Orleans and making no effort to clean it up!)

He's done far more damage "protecting" us from "another 9/11" than 0sama could ever dream of doing.

37. I agree with some
Maybe thats what Binladen he was going for. 9/11 was very unifying for our country. the level of patriotism afterwords was astronomically high. We all forget. As much as I would hate to see something of that magnitude happen again, I think it will... eventually. The war on terror is so vague that we can never win.

63. Oh my God!
You are serious! Therefore, you are, in fact, as stupid as you seem.

The war in Iraq is not an either/or. We will be attacked here again, whether or not we're fighting in Iraq. It takes willful stupidity of the most egregious kind to think otherwise. As a matter of fact, it takes willful not thinking to make that one so.

To take it one step further, Mr. Nascar, we are more likely to have another terrorist attack here in the old US of A because we are fomenting furious rage in the Middle East.

You need some remediation, dude. That, and an understanding that yellow ribbons aren't what "Support The Troops".

Bush is a moron who couldn't protect anyone from anything. Get over your bad self.

The "here" or "there" theory is a fanciful lie. With that argument, we are safe here in America as long as we are fighting a war somewhere else. That makes NO sense - at all.

61. The vast majority of your country has looked at the facts, as blatant as they are, and logically
concluded that your leader is responsible for horrible things. Go to congress.org and read the hundreds of letters from once-Bush-Supporters who have switched over to Democrat because they're disgusted with his destruction of our country. And other countries, I might add.

It's hard to believe that they would take such a mentally challenged fella. But hey, cannon fodder is cannon fodder, I suppose.

71.  a differing "opinion" ...
One thing you should know about us big mean lefties, we hate being beaten at our own game, and that game is LOGIC. We learned that in school, like in that science class where evolution was taught. We were not forced to believe it but we certainly appreciate the thinking behind it. We would respect your so called "opinion" if you could somehow back it up. And BTW, that phrase "fight them here or there" hardly qualifies as YOUR opinion. My colleagues have successfully pointed out that your statement is a regurgitation of neocon talking points.

10. Fighting 'em over HERE?!?
Edited on Fri Dec-14-07 07:14 PM by NanceGreggs
Why that's just impossible!

Don't you know that Bush and his administration have made this country completely safe? They've spent billions doing just that -- and they'd have the receipts to prove it, if only they hadn't gone missin' in the fog of war, along with Georgie's military records.

(On edit): Ooops! Forgot to add: Thanks so much for your point-by-point counter to everything I've said. The details were more than informative, and we all now have a much clearer picture of what a fantastic job BushCo has been doing!

In view of your lengthy arguments, I wonder how I could possibly have been so wrong.

Yeah, we would all be worshiping Allah by now if it wasn't for our Fearless Leader. :D

41. Right
I signed up here because I like it here. But as with anywhere on the net, people vary to a degree on opinions. Do all new members get treated like this? Is this some kind of hazing for a new person?

53. All new members do not get treated like this.
The ones who do are the ones who make the most ludicrous & laughable assertions about Bush's "character". You claim to like this site. But it's pretty much just for liberals. I'll say this: bless your heart.

It's hazing for a Bushbot. It amuses us when you guys come over to play. We know we shouldn't bat your type around (it's not nice to tease the short bus kids) but it's so easy and more fun than it really should be.

60. In this BOOMING economy ...
... you don't have a TV?

Well, you just get yourself down to WalMart - they're having a big sale on plasma-screen TVs this week. Produced in sweatshops by seven and eight-year old kids who make 30 cents per week - and the savings get passed along to you, the customer!

(P.S. DON'T take the free freezer-full of burgers that come with every TV - e.coli and whatnot, if you get my drift.)

73. This just in... "Allah" is simply the Arabic word for God.
Allah is not a separate god! Christians and even Jews who speak Arabic also worship "Allah".

There are also about 3 million Muslims right here in the good old U.S. of A. One of them is in Congress, Keith Ellison of Minnesota. But I guess they're not part of your definition of "us". :eyes:

101. Actually, Nance
in your original post, your description of Dana Perrino would work well to describe our recently departed, but pathetically transparent, disruptor....

<snip>

Dana Perrino is not as dumb as she seems. If she was as dumb as she seems, a teleprompter flashing the words inhale/exhale would be clearly visible during televised briefing sessions.

Your whole post was great, as usual, but I really got a kick out of the inhale/exhale part.

No one wants the truth. Just keep sucking down the gas and spending money you don't have and succumb to the moronic mind controlling video slime on your tv. Truly, ignorance is bliss ...until the shit hits the fan. Good with that America.
