1. none of them will ever get a vote from me
so I hope none of them plan to run for President in 2008

or I'll have to either not vote or vote for a non-Democrat for the first time in my life.

2. Each one of these America haters can lick my ass!
Edited on Sat Mar-04-06 12:00 AM by SammyBlue
WTF is this shit??? This law destroys the freedoms of this country.

So much for growing testicles! The Dems reverted back to their normal selves! No one these swine will get a fucking dime from me ever again!

Oh no. . .not again!




Feingold/Clark or Feingold/Napolitano in 2008!!!

9. Dem? How about DINO?
With politicians like this on our side, who needs the criminal opposition?

11. I wouldn't say DINO. I'd say weak
Edited on Sat Mar-04-06 12:13 AM by SammyBlue
These people are why the Repiglicans have control. These Dems have no conviction and no courage.

Russell Feingold is the only one who's worth a damn right now!

Biden and Durbin need to be taken to the damn wood shed! Lieberman just needs to be beaten into liquid shit!

Salazar isn't a Democrat. Period!!! This idiot will do a Nighthore Campbell on us soon enough!

10. It's kind of hard to sing their praises when they do something like this
They shouldn't have voted for the Patriot Act. If we pretend we're not disappointed by their actions then we are in effect also tossing the Constitution out of the window.

8. F the 2 party system
What is the main reason we can't get another party or two out there like the civilized countries have.

12. It's really not a two party system. That is a myth....
...it's two separate wings of the same party.

14. There are NO "perfect" Democrats no matter how you look at it.
Edited on Sat Mar-04-06 12:26 AM by politicasista
I don't like it either but they all have voted on some things we don't agree with. Focus on the fall of 2006. This is all so unproductive.

15. Yes, how dare we criticize an un-American vote like this
Dude, Democrats like this make me sick! These people who voted for this horrid law deserve to be criticized.

I will support any Democrat I can (well, I'm not giving money to these people who would sell out our freedoms because they are weak), but these people deserve to be criticize.

I hate weak Democrats as much as the kool aid drinking Democrats who say "The Dems can do no wrong."

16. Anyone want to look me in the eyes and tell me we don't need a 3rd party?
I mean, seriously. We need a 3rd party that has its shit together.

This is just pathetic. I'll still vote for Durbin and Obama, but I won't do it with any type of enthusiasm, and I certainly won't be urging my friends and family to vote for them...

18. Damn! One more reason to kick Cantwell's ass out of office!
She voted yea????????? Another thing to add to the "negative" column on her. I wish Patty Murray would sit her down and 'splain what it means to be a Dem. :grr:

19. I think the whole deal was they got some limiting language
inserted via amendment and figured they'd better jump on it and capture what they could. I know, for instance, that they got the library provision modified fairly seriously.
Also, i had heard a rumor that there was some other big deal coming up and they traded some votes. Probably get fu**ed over by the mob, as usual.
Don't bring a knife to a gun fight.

24. if this were just an isolated incident, that would be one thing . . .
but it's part of a long-standing pattern of Democrats enabling the BushCo agenda and facilitating legislation that furthers it . . . they don't even have enough intestinal fortitude to cast a protest vote . . . and it's gotten pretty damned sickening, imo . . .
