    Re: Dems: GOP rooting against America

    Whhaaaa....the mean ol Dems wanted Bush to fail.
    Sorry folks Georgie did that all on his own.

    I can already see that the Republican want too put a saddle on that line and ride around on it for as long as they can to beat down critisizm.

    Kinda like they rode around on Clinton's penis for years. Clinging to it like some kind of life preserver.

    Wow, congratulations Disney. You made it through three whole lines before stating some idiotic bull**** as if its fact. Great job! You prove once again to be really desiring for honest discussion

    Yeah, I think its idiotic to cheer that Chicago didn't get it. At the same time, I don't think thats rooting "against" America. People felt the President shouldn't be wasting his time going over there and by it having absolutely zero effect maybe in the future he won't make such an idiotic, in their mind, move again where as if it succeeded he'd just be more encouraged to do it again.

    Its kond of like in sports. Say your team drafts a QB and you really really disagree with it. And that QB starts stinking it up, but bumbles his way into a few good plays, but over all is just horrible. It gets to a point where you've realized this team made a mistake, we need to get rid of this QB, that you honestly don't want to see him have a few good games at the end of the year because it may encourage the team to give him a big fat contract, when in reality you know the team needs to move on and get rid of him and get a new one.

    Some people don't like that Obama's constantly doing these seemingly "fluff" things for publicity, from completely fluff like Letterman and ESPN, to smaller "fluff" like the Olympics. As such, when he actually does those things these people hope they don't work out well because it gives him less ways he and his advisors can delude himself into REPEATING the action.

    It wasn't "WOOO! ****'em, we don't want the Olympics, WOOO SCREW OBAMA, **** America, we shouldn't have Olympics". It was much more likely "Excellent, now maybe he'll see he's not some god like figure that would just show up and make it in the bag and thus shouldn't have gone out of his way to go over there in the first place and won't do such things in the future".

    And really? You didn't want Bush to Fail Disney?

    So you were for Bush's bailout plan? You hoped Bush didn't fail at getting a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage? You hoped that Bush didn't fail at getting the Patriot Act passed and portions of it not being scaled back? You hoped Bush didn't fail at keeping GITMO open or claiming that what he was doing wasn't Torture? You never hoped he failed at keeping our troops in Iraq for as long as he felt needed? You didn't expect that the tax cuts were going to help all classes of people and be a benefit to the economy and revenues, thus wanting them to remain in place? You never wanted him to FAIL at any of those things? You wanted gay marriage to be constitutionally banned? For "torture" to happen? For Gitmo to stay open and for us to be in Iraq as long as Bush wanted? You wanted all that?

    Because that's the context of what people are saying that they want Obama to is that.

    They want his proposal for Health Care to fail, becuase they think its bad, just like those on the left wanted the Patriot Act portiosn to be stripped away, because they thought it was bad.

    They want his cap and trade policies to not pass in the same way people didn't want the constitional amendment about gay marriage to not pass.

    They don't so much want the bad stimulous plan to "fail" as they fully expect it to fail, and as such would rather it show signs of failing sooner or later to justify it to the people to fix it sooner rather than later...just like so many democrats during the run up to Bush's tax cuts were saying that it won't work, fought against extending it when it was in place, and talked during campaigns of needing to raise taxes because we couldn't "sustain it".

    You're bull**** post is dripping with hyper partisan bull****, hypocracy, and utter worthless content from 3 lines in and onward.

    The TRUTH is that being against Obama and the morons that infest Congress is an effort to root FOR America, not against her. I am hardly surprised to see Liberals get it all wrong; they seldom if ever get it right.

    We had to listen for 8 years how bad things were under Bush, now we can see what "bad" REALLY means as we watch these morons desperately try to claim that this mess is all the fault of them Republicans in an effort to hide the lies and distortions they used to get elected in the first place.

    Remember the promises? They told America that they would be more fiscally responsible, pay as they go, raise taxes to balance the budget and how they promised Americans that the “porkulus”, excuse me, stimulus package sinking us into a $1.6 trillion deficit would keep unemployment below 8% and create 5,000,000 high paying jobs.

    Yes, this is ALL about Republicans and George Bush.

    One can only wonder how many more months of this asinine criminally irresponsible program we will be asked to wait until the rest of us comprehend what an epoch failure this Administration represents. Obama is going to make the Carter years look like a cake walk.
    yes, it is about republican policies and george bush. we are only 10 months into the obama administration. the bush admin WAS an epic failure, and it's tough to clean up the mess.


    could you please enlighten me? what policies and or laws have been put in place that you consider "socialist"? thanks.

    How is this thread about you? Your fellow Democrat Liberals are who I am speaking of.

    Your efforts to illustrate your selective outrage notwithstanding, are you attempting to deny what was done to Bush or the fact that this is not about being against America but rather being against the asinine policies this Administration and current Democrat majority have promoted which so far, have done NOTHING to make this economy better, create jobs or raise the standards of living?

    That would be a lie. The truth is we had a political party in this country that acted like a spoiled little brat and was willing to place the nation a great risk and split it in along a vast permanent partisan divide by trying to disenfranchise the voters of Florida by divining votes from hanging chads.

    All the Supreme Court did was end the unprecedented divisive hyper partisan stupidity the Democrats were engaged in.

    I suggest that you read this news paper article and subsequent final count before making such "hyper partisan" claims:

    Re: Dems: GOP rooting against America

    Are we basically bringing back the "if you're not with us, you're against us" mantra. Didn't we bitch at Bush when he brought that out. You can hope Obama fails and not be hoping for America to fail. Patriotism is not defined through support of the President.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    How far into The Obama's tenure will you contninue to blame Bush?
    At what point do you lay the blame at The Obama's feet?

    ....and have lost over 2.5 million jobs, watched the unemployment rate double, watched the deficit more than triple, watched GDP continue to decline and the national debt climb by $2 trillion.

    I am not sure what more there is to see except more of the same.

    This statement is more of a "because I say so" rather than anything containing credible facts. It is more of the same hyperbolic blather Liberals had been spewing for the last 6 years of the Bush Administration while at the current time, defending policies that resemble Bush on steroids.

    I am constantly amused at the level of denial it must take to support Democrats these days.

    If you want to see an epoch mess, hang on to your britches cause you aint seen nothing yet. With unemployment continuing to soar, deficits continuing to climb and GDP growth continuing to decline; what you will be witnessing in the next year or so will make the Carter years look like a cake walk.

    If you think things are bad now, wait until the Democrats have to be honest about the vast amount of tax increases they will have to pass to pay for all their wasteful deficit spending.

    Government loans to major US corporations giving them a say in how much to pay their CEOs, who they hire and what products they will produce; Government efforts to manage the US healthcare system in direct competition with the free market; the Governments vast expansion and dictating who will be the winners (green energy companies) and losers (oil and insurance companies) of our economy since Obama and the Democrats took charge; and last, but never least, the efforts of this Administration to over-regulate American industry dictating to them what are acceptable profits according to their standards.

    Of course Liberals don't see this as a vast expansion of Government over the private markets because in your mind this is what needs to happen; that is, until the OTHER party gets into power again, then all bets are once again off.

    You see, the only reason you support a vast expansion of Government currently is because your guys are in office; when it was the Bush Administration, you demagogued it claiming Bush was no different than Democrats.

    Yet Bush's expansion was slightly different in that it was mostly dealing with national security which is what the Constitution states is the Federal Governments primary role; whereas you and your fellow Liberals still think that role is expanding welfare to all Americans.

    Now we can pretend that vastly expanding the role of Government into every facet of our lives is not a Socialist endeavor, but that would require the willing suspension of disbelief.

    You want an example of your selective outrage? Here you go; how many threads did you start when Bush was in office suggesting that it was wrong for Liberals to criticize his efforts in the ME and with the economy and how that was rooting against America?

    My guess would be ZERO. Carry on.
