    Scarecrow. Do you work in any kind of public relations? If yes then you should quit. Right now. The Republican promotional machine as good as it at creating catch words like 'Homeland Security' and 'Heartland', will NEVER want itself being called the party of 'No'. Because Americans do not like the word 'no'. Can I max out my credit cards? Yes. Can I buy whatever I want? Yes. Can I say whatever I want? Yes. Even Rove would have a hard time spinning 'No' into anything but 'No'.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    This is what I dislike about modern political dialogue - this idea that anytime a problem arises the Federal government must "do something" to fix it. God forbid private citizens resolve something on their own. It's obvious we're incapable of such, so forfeit your right to self-determination and repeat the mantra:

    Our beloved government cannot fail. The fault must lie entirely within ourselves, so we must invite the omnipotent bureaucracy to oversee more of our affairs lest we stray from under the nanny’s skirt. We are naughty children who require the apt attention and supervision of a loving babysitter. Protect us from danger and keep us cozy in our large playpen so that we can concentrate on our toys. The bureaucrats will stop the pain, keep us safe; without them, we are helpless.

    The point is the republicans do offer alternatives. Dear Leader's propaganda partners at CNN and the New York Times ignore them and then claim that no alternatives are offered. In the real world that would be called a lie, but in Dear Leader's liberal la-la land, it is called objective reporting.

    The republicans are not saying this either though.

    Ah, I see. It's a conspiracy by the man to hold down the little guys...

    Not so much a conspiracy as the abandonment of all objectivity by the media and of logic by liberals.

    Both groups proceed from a reliance upon orthodoxy that cuts off all reasoned discourse and substantive debate--the liberal position is deemed correct in all particulars by default, even when it flies in the face of experience and is internally contradictory to the point of incoherence.

    Not a conspiracy, just an epidemic of sloppy thinking. As the saying goes, never assume malice when stupidity will suffice. As Dear Leader has proven daily since his inauguration, stupidity is the order of the day for liberals.

    Yes, they refuse the basic truth that the Democrats are ****ed in the head. They keep pretending the Democrats are any but what they are, power hungry corrupt elitist authoritarians.

    The spoiled child reaches drops his marshmallow into the fire.

    Why shouldn't the mother say "no"?

    Saying no is the correct thing to do.

    Since the Democrats don't do anything that turns out well, just knowing it's Democrat that proposes it is sufficient for a "no" by any sane person.
