hey i'm sorry, but i don't think this comment was appropriate...it is supremely uncharitable and unfair to lay such an event at the feet of anyone but the terrorists behind it, let alone the person who is our president, whether he continues to be next January or not...i dislike politics with a passion, and try to stay out of it, but gradually over the past months and especially now, i have become very tired of people disrespecting the person running our country, whether you're in his party or not...we're all in the same country, after all, which is supposed to be far stronger a bond...if the president I didn't vote for gets elected, although I will be upset, I will still treat our new president with respect...
My sentiments also Donna......How can you blame someone that was in office for only 8 months for the 9/11 debacle when the prior administration had 8 years.
Yes, W won it, and Chenney will have another four years as president.
LoL.....Yea, have heard this many times by the conspiracy theorist
By the way, I do not think Republicans should talk about class. O'Reilly , Hannity , Pearl , Rove , Chenney will not help this cause.
Uhhhh, I could give you a list of lefties also, so it's a mute point.
And the worst thing, it will be Hillary running in 2008.
Shrillery doesn't have a chance in 08'
The only good thing I can think of of this outcome is that the Democrats will have to rethink their liberal policies. If they can't win now, with the economy at its lowest point in history after the great years of CLinton, after wasting the surplus and with an administration that favors the top 1% of America and who should only have got these portion of the votes, with a disasterous war and a lousy performance in the White House that led to 9/11, with social security and medical health insurance managed terribly, and still lose, and loose big, from White House to COngress to Governor seats to the WHite House, and against a president that has no charisma whatsoever, there has to be a drastic change in the Democratic party and I hope it will be their liberal agenda.
Wow, this is a loaded one. Let me first start with your false notion with the economy being at it's lowest point, unless you are refering to the unemplyment rate which is at all time historical lows 8)When Clinton ran for re-election, the unemployment rate was 5.6% as compared to the 5.4% now. You can also make a small case for outsourcing in some areas, but that roller coaster started under Clinton's free trade policies. The unemployment rate is lower than all of the 70's, 80's, & 90's combined. Also, the great years of Clinton were also due to the republican sweeping the house & senate & forced him to endorse more of thier economic policies, which Clinton did when he signed onto 7 of the 10 major points of the GOP's contract with america which spurred the booming economy.
W also just doesn't favor the top1%, but all americans who pay taxes. The left loves to spin the class warfare rhetoric, but Bush only brought the top bracket down from 39% to 35%. His philosophy is that government should not take anymore than 35% of anyone's money, which I agree. I think the left needs to stop with the talking points& actually go talk to some of these rich people they disparage all the time. These are the producers of our society & trust me they just don't let thier money sit & rot in a bank account somewhere in switzerland, they are reinvesting & starting new companies, thus creating jobs. It's a complete joke that anyone is gullible to beleive that Kerry would have created jobs by taxing small businesses & others that invest in our ecenomy and create jobs. There has been a 1.3 million job surplus in the last year because of W's policies, that is one of the fastest job growth rates in our history.
If you want to blame anyone for the healthcare and social security crisis, don't even blame the republicans for this. I would put alot of blame with all the trial lawyers on the left & the Dem's refusal to put caps on lawsuits against healthcare providers & tort reform. Many in my generation (us younger folk) are mad as hell that the Dem's have blocked any reforms in social security which the president has tried to do. I would like to have part of that go into a mutual fund account with much higher returns. I also want to have a voice in where this large chunk of money the left is stealing from my paycheck. I've never also understand the reason why some christians think that the government should take care of us because I could have sworn that Christ said for the church to care for those in need. This must be some of the same people that argue against giving God his tithe while they throw pennies in for their tithe. They are more concerned about rendering unto Caesar than unto God.
Finally, I would agree with you that the Dems will continue to be big losers unless they shake themselves of thier liberalism. W recieved 3 million more votes than Kerry along with recieving the most votes in history, carried the majority of the states, swept the house & senate, & all of this because the Dems just don't get it that liberalism doesn't play to well with americans. If they gave us pro-lifers & christians a platform & voice in thier party, they would be so much better off. They need to stop catoring to all the sewer groups that most of us despise. I would totally vote anyday for a prolife democrat if there were any. It would be nice if we had that option.
