    Frankly, as obnoxious as "We won" sounds, it's TRUE! The Republicans passed bills during Bush's term that allowed all these tax cuts. By voting for Democrats and kicking out the Republicans in massive numbers, the voters are saying to the Republicans, "Your tax cuts haven't worked. We want to try something else."

    Why the Republicans keep pushing their own agenda when it was rejected in November 2008 is beyond me.

    I do find it interesting that so many of his most vocal supporters 'round these parts have been uncharacteristically quiet in threads they'd have been all over not long ago.
    For this Obama supporter, it's been enjoyable watching the anti-Obama people yell and scream about how horrible he is. I read their posts and think, "Now they know how I felt for the last 8 years." I don't care to respond because, in my opinion, many of the complaints are bogus and aren't worth responding to. Seriously.

    For me, I feel like I don't have to defend anything, particularly when he has been in office for only 3 weeks!

    It's a matter of principal and it comes down to what you believe in. The gauntlet has been thrown down and I for one would like to see a more "up yours" attitude from the Republicans.

    Me too because if this stimulus package has a positive effect, the Republicans won't be able to claim that they assisted in such positive effect, and the Democrats can hopefully win more seats in Congress.

    This is a lie on your part. I already corrected you on this in another thread. He indeed had a teleprompter.

    One would think these rabid left wingers would be less rabid now that they won. apparently it just makes them morer rabid.

    The president made opening remarks, a short speech which was on a prompter. We were speaking about the press conference, which could not be on a prompter unless the whole thing was scripted. Do you have evidence of that, or are you just pulling stuff out of your ass, as usual?

    Three weeks has been plenty long for him to show his true colors. that whole address he gave was arrogant, disingenuous, and pointless. It's going to be fun watching the next four years.

    So you are admitting you lied? thank you.

    Because they know, in their heart of hearts, that they are wrong. So they have to destroy all their enemies because their ideology cannot stand the long term light of debate. Liberalism is not common sense or intellectual. It is emotional, and relies on pulling heart strings to achieve agreement. Look at the way liberals live, they vote liberal but live like conservatives. They don't allow their children to practice free sex under their own roofs or smoke pot while watching TV with Mom and Dad, or moving into ghettos with the poor. Look at our elected officials that deny the ordinary citizens school choice, but send their own children to private schools. They give away public moneys as charity, but give less than conservatives of their own money. In fact I suggest that liberals aren't even about solving problems with real solutions; but about the accumulation of power, using the Welfare state as a means to power with only the appearance of helping the poor. If it weren't so, they wouldn't despise religious people, because the Bible says to give to the poor which conservatives do privately. The liberals who don't realize this are just brainwashed zombies who run around promoting policies with consequences they don't understand.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
