    Now list for me how Obama has violated his campaign promises.
    BINGO!
    Slap the Gold Star on Johnny's forehead for the whole class to see.

    Nation building. He did proclaim that during the first run. Post 911 the landscape changed. It was a rational change to events on the ground.

    Bush reacted to being attacked... Democrats make claims of tax cuts and then first thing in office tell us... ugh... me... president... me say no tax... but, but, but... ugh... I not know we have big problem... no tax cut... tax increase. Sorry... Trust me.

    Top Democrats believe they have struck political gold by depicting Rush Limbaugh as the new face of the Republican Party, a full-scale effort first hatched by some of the most familiar names in politics and now being guided in part from inside the White House.

    The strategy took shape after Democratic strategists Stanley Greenberg and James Carville included Limbaughís name in an October poll and learned their longtime tormentor was deeply unpopular with many Americans, especially younger voters. Then the conservative talk-radio host emerged as an unapologetic critic of Barack Obama shortly before his inauguration, when even many Republicans were showering him with praise.

    Soon it clicked: Democrats realized they could roll out a new GOP bogeyman for the post-Bush era by turning to an old one in Limbaugh, a polarizing figure since he rose to prominence in the 1990s.


    So when reading this one has to ask why they would think this is a good strategy. Perhaps the reason they need to continue having a boogey man is to deflect attention to the rabid out of control criminally negligent way they are passing pork filled legislation that will do nothing to "stimulate" economic growth?

    After all, they canít keep kicking Bush around, he isnít President any more.

    The new talking point as expressed today by President Barrack Hussein Obama is this; they inherited a $1.2 trillion dollar deficit.

    Now this specious remark may have legs if Obama had come from a State or some other obscure position before becoming President. But unfortunately for him, he cannot run from the deficits because as a senator he VOTED for every package that caused the deficit to become the largest deficit in US history.

    I engage your argument and you begin with the personal attacks.

    Typical Liberal bull****.

    "Pro-Environment" means Al'Gors toughly debunked argument.

    The environmental movement is a surrogate argument to increase the size of government.

    Yes they have.

    They keep trying to pass legislation which condones abortion so long as some trivial requirement is met, like a useless ultrasound or a consultation the day before. Those are pro-choice laws.

    Liberals are for the eradication of any religious icon in government, and that is NOT what the first amendment is about. Even the right wing SCOTUS recently decided that the government inclusion of a mere religious symbol was government endorsing that symbol.

    Quote Originally Posted by SouthernDemocrat View Post

    It's imposable to claim that you support the laborer when you take away that laborer's job by over taxing his employer.

    Republicans increased funding to food stamps, unemployment and other benefits. Bush even unlocked the second part of the stimulus before Obama took office so that Obama could get started on his socialized healthcare.

    Big government spending is a liberal trait. It is not a conservative trait. It doesn't matter that republicans want to over spend on X while Democrats want to over spend on Y; **It's still overspending either way**.

    Just look at this monster thread.

    I wonder if any Democrats participating in this discussion understand what Rush meant when he said he wants Obama to fail?

    Or if they suffer from a disease that deprives them of exhibiting reading comprehension or destroys that ability in totality?

    Rush is toasting Obama and his goons today. Being anointed by the Goonies in the Obama administration... Rush has offered to debate Obama... He would fund the cost. No taxpayer cash. As the leader, and in bipartisan spirit, they should meet and debate for the good of the country.

    LOL...

    Well, he just reneged on his offer to debate ANY of the President's men. He now says the offer stands for ONLY the President, "not a flunkie."

    Sure they do.
    But, they cannot allow legitimate criticism to pass unchallenged.
    So, rather than defend the policy or attack the criticism, they attack the person that MADE the criticism.

    IOW, they're trying to d to Rush like they did to Joe the Plumber.

    Difference is, Rush can fight back.
