    Feel free to provide documentation wherein I have "constantly derided George Bush, Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, etc. as fools, corrupt, incompetent, criminal, etc."

    Please. I'm all ears.

    Oh, I wouldn't dream of going first. Please; I invite you to start with the honesty and intellectual integrity.

    I have no allegiance to the Democratic party. I've voted all over the ticket, it just happens that the majority of my political leanings agree with general Democratic tenets. Of course, don't let the fact that I'm a fervent supporter of the death penalty and violent criminals serving hard (by hard, I mean %$#@! HARD) time throw you off your game of galaxy-wide generalizations and hypocritical demonization.

    After all, you're on quite a troll.

    It depends, did your dad also attended Yale being a legacy certainly doesn't hurt. Also being politically connected certainly doesn't nor does the fact Prescott at one time was a Senator from Connecticut (where Yale happens to be located) hurt.

    Actually, I think it's your confusion about what libertarians stand for. Against capitalism? Please. Closer to Anarchists than Republicans we may be able to talk about, however. Republicans here in Dixie value personal liberty only as far as it extends to making money and buying a Glock. The rest, not so much.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    So lame and childish...
    I didn't start the damn thread and I wasn't the first one to bring Obama into it or how many books the Shrub read(s) or whether he was in a reading contest with Rove either so why jump me?

    I think they are merely pointing out he's not all that bright. Which seems pretty obvious. This isn't about politics my friend. I know it's shocking to some, but some of us don't take sides in the silly Democrat versus Republican big government fest. In terms of smart the dude is Palin with a dick.

    You almost have it right. The reason the left hates Bush is that the left is intolerant of ignorance.

    "I" started this thread. This was news "today". THAT makes it breaking news. Just because some right wingers don't like the kind of discussion that arose at the mere mention of Bush's name should tell everybody something. If people don't like the thread... geeze Louise, don't read it. Is that such a hard concept to understand

    But, some people, we all know them, just can't let a thread about Bush go. So, they lambast it with personal attacks, name calling, etc. All without one single fact to support their whining. None of that behavior never does anything for their argument... if they even have one.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!
