    What are they?

    The Dems in the Senate asked for and got a second vote in support of going into Iraq.

    The Dems acted in concert with their speeches when The Clintons were president.

    We all know they tried their best to aid and abed the enemy when things got rough.

    Their Senate Majority Leader said "we lost."

    Others slandered the troops, their Generals, and Bush. Suspending disbelief...

    Which brings me to the poll...

    RUSSIAN COLLUSION: Kennedy... proposed an unabashed quid pro quo. Kennedy would lend Andropov a hand in dealing with President Reagan. In return, the Soviet leader would lend the Democratic Party a hand in challenging Reagan in the 1984 presidential election.

    Ouch!
    Hit a nerve have we?

    I believe we should remember our history.
    Your team should be faced with its disgusting behavior on a consistent basis... because you folks are first to forget. Hence the poll.

    Never forget.
    Never forget those who pissed on our troops and their families.
    And for what?

    I suppose you believe the Democrats voting for and then trashing the war was principled?
    Trashing the troops? General Betrayus?
    Treating President Bush like the enemy?
    Rumsfeld?

    While men and women are busy fighting a war they voted for?

    I understand. I feel your pain.
    It's tough to defend a bunch of vultures.
    A sensitive issue.
    People that vote troops to war for political expediency and then trash them when things get tough for the same reason.

    Lincoln would have sent many of your team to the brig.

    Re: What are they?

    Democrats NEVER act for the good of the nation.

    They're out there today, demanding tax increases. A crashing economy, and the fools are trying to raise taxes.

    They refused to freeze federal spending. With a trillion dollar deficit and an economy sliding from recession into depression, these fools think there's no end to the money they can spend.

    They're serious about this carbon tax nonsense. The economy shows no sign of slowing it's collapse....and the Democrats want to tax energy and turn a rapid slide into a headlong crash for the bottom.

    The only good thing with having Democrats in office is the knowledge that the Dow Jones Industrial Average can't go below 0 points.

    If you want to get down to it, neither do the Republicans. Both sides are out for nothing more than their power. They don't really act for us or by us or uphold our freedom and liberty; they all want to increase the government in their favor. Peas in a pod if you ask me. The Republicans took us into an undeclared, occupational war which we never had any business conducting. The Democrats "opposed" it in theory, but not in practice as they voted for it almost all the time. The opposition from the Democrats wasn't an ideological thing, it was a bitching at the other side thing. About the only thing the Republocrats can do right. We should never have gone into Iraq, especially without having finished in Afghanistan. We're not the Empire here, and we're not good at occupation (nor should we ever be).

    In the end both of the main parties suck and are out only for the proliferation of their power, not our rights and liberties. It's time that people start to understand the overall corruption and evil nature of the Republocrats.

    Well said!! I know I couldn't have said it better.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Re: What are they?

    If you ask me they are scum, complete scum but that would to apply to all in Washington not just the Democrats since the GOP isn't any better. Our so-called "leaders" are nothing but bottom feeding, scum-sucking, lower than trash human filth. May the all die and rot in hell.

    I never respected you more than at this moment.

    I am glad I entered this thread just to read that, because the OP and poll is just garbage..
