    Beyond this, if the only reason you posted in this thread was to inform others of how misleading and/or incorrect the article is, why run away from explaining to your uninformed friends exactly what is misleading and/or incorrect?
    I just let you rant on, that should be enough.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    In any case, its like blaming the rape victim for wearing a short skirt. Yes the people need to raise their voices and get into politics more actively, but the system is setup to suppress this type of behavior. So calling the voters stupid isnt really solving the issue now is it?
    I blame the people. If the voters didn't act like lemmings we wouldn't have half the problems we do now. If they DID THEIR JOBS we wouldn't.

    Oh on topic? You mean spinning a stall tactic on a larger bill that happened to contain troop funding and trying to label the GOP as anti-military, I thought we solved that. You're parroting the DNC talking point on the issue trying to smear the GOP...

    Duh.

    Re: Why Did Senate Republicans Oppose Troop Funding?

    Both parties played politics here.

    The Associated Press: Senate sends big Pentagon budget bill to Obama

    But there was GOP discontent over the Democratic decision to use the bill as the engine to carry several short-term extensions of programs set to expire because of the failure of Congress to deal with them separately.

    Those include two-month extensions of unemployment benefits for the long-term jobless, health care subsidies for those out of work, highway and transit funding, three provisions of the terrorism-fighting Patriot Act and legislation shielding doctors from a steep cut in Medicare payments.

    Re: Why Did Senate Republicans Oppose Troop Funding?

    I see our right-leaning friends are avoiding this debate like the plague.



    Republicans have sealed their fate as The Party of NO. Their outright hypocrisy is sickening.

    GOP Health Care Memo: "Delay, Stall, Slow Down"

    A new strategy memo from Republican party leader Michael Steele urges Republicans to do everything in their power to block the Democrats' health care bill from moving forward in the Senate.

    "I urge everyone to spend every bit of capital and energy you have to stop this health care reform," Republican National Committee Chair Michael Steele wrote in the memo, obtained by CBS News. "The Democrats have accused us of trying to delay, stall, slow down and stop this bill. They are right. We do want to delay, stall, slow down and ultimately stop them from experimenting on our nation's health care. And guess what, so do a majority of Americans."

    In fact, Steele's last point may be up for debate. A CBS News/ New York Times poll released last night shows that while most Americans are skeptical of the impact the Democrats' overall health care package will have, 60 percent of Americans still support the Democrats' proposal for a government-run health insurance option, or "public option."
    First, a purity test that even Ronnie Reagan couldn't pass. Now, a perfect example of exactly how hypocritical and self-important our Republican leaders are.

    Upcoming congressional elections are going to be really interesting for these Republican Senators who voted against military funding...

    Simple. They are the "Party of NO".

    No ideas...just no.

    Sorry, I guess this was supposed to be a partisan jerk-circle, so I should have realized that pointing out that both parties suck right now wouldn't fly here.

    What a horribly dishonest quote. The public option is a moot point now; the fact is that as many as 60% of Americans oppose the current Senate bill. The "purity test" was never even close to being put into action and reflects nobody's views except those of the crazy who wrote it. You are right that upcoming Congressional elections are going to be interesting though, since it looks like those evil, hypocritical Republicans are going to gain 3-6 seats in the Senate and 20-50 seats in the House.


    Both parties do dumb crap. To say otherwise is to be what we call here a "partisan hack".
