    Yea...its funny. Those that cried the loudest about Bush....sit on their asses now as Obama dwarfs Bush as he pushes us over the brink into bankruptcy. Somehow their newly found "understanding" seems a little disengenous.

    Of couse there is no way to prove this, but I think that part of this tea party mentality sweeping the country is that people have woken up and are now paying attention, spending may have been bad under Repubs, but under this Dem president it is unbelievable.
    Saying that it has always been this way is a cop out, spending has to change from the status quo and Obama is not doing it.

    I am reminded when John McCain decided to quit his campaign to run to Washington and fix the economy, because "the fundamentals of America’s economy are strong." Quitting seems to be a theme with Mr. McCain and his Republican colleagues.


    Jesus. Can you imagine this whiny, temper-tantrum-throwing, do-nothing pinhead as POTUS?
    As of November 4, 2008, what John McCain wants became irrelevant. His threat, just like his running mate's skull, is empty. Leave to a rightie to double down on a failed strategy. Thank gawd that creepy old fart and his bubble headed wacko second got their asses handed to them.

    It's not running, it's pointing out some perceived hypocrisy. I, for one, have criticized Obama plenty, because on most issues he's been Bush III. However, I'm not in the majority there. Pretty much everyone looks the other way when people they agree with are doing bad things.

    No, it's the same old song and dance we've been hearing since the primaries got in full swing for the 08 election. "B-b-b-but Bush did it!"

    Do you want a cookie?

    because on most issues he's been Bush III.
    No, he has not.

    I think it's more of a team thing than it is an individual person thing.

    Why do you think that opposing The Obama's/Pelosi's/Reid's agenda isnt what their constituents want?

    And what about the rules of Congress? Shouldn't a member of Congress who outright refuses to engage in the business of Congress be kicked to the curb?
    On what grounds?
    And, how does oppsing the opposition not qualify as 'the business of congress'?

    Jesus. Can you imagine this whiny, temper-tantrum-throwing, do-nothing pinhead as POTUS?
    Well, yes -- after all, The Obama is President, and He's far worse in this (and every other) regard than JMcC.

    Big whoop.

    People are elected to Congress to represent their constituents.
    There's absolutely nothing in that which requires said electee to 'play along' with the opposition in order for them to to that job.

    For whatever reason - and one can easily guess that reason - the Dems/liberals cannot understand how opposing the Dem agenda could possibly be considered representing those constituents.

    Even when the Democrats were sorely put out in 2000, they still engaged in the governance of the country. Obama won by decent margin. I can't imagine what Republicans would do had Obama been put in office by the Supreme Court.
    This denotes a deep, deep ignorance of the facts.

    Elections have consequences. For Pete's sake, y'all need to learn to deal with that.
    I'm sure you said that very thing in 2004, that the dems shoudl lie down and give GWB what he wanted.
