Yeah, me too. 4% unemployment,$7 tril less debt, twice the economic growth, 25 million more jobs, gas at $1.78 per gal, private health insurance $2,600 less, 1/2 food stamp spending, lower taxes, more business startups, fewer bankruptcies, 25% lower college tuition, fewer acknowledged morons.
Bush started with a balanced budget & left office with the worst recession in 80 years, a housing collapse, near financial meltdown, doubled the debt,and two quagmire wars.

I love how you assh*les are so stupid as to drag out the $1.78 a gallon. Really. It was 1.78 a gallon down from a record high because there was no demand. No demand because George W Bush killed the economy.

Most of those gun nuts shouldn't be allowed anything other than a rubber fork. I will guarantee that most all of them have had something bad happen to a family member with a gun, still they don't get the connection.

There is no question in anyone's mind that atrocities did occur during the Vietnam War. However, for a veteran of that war to speak before Congress and the entire nation and label all veterans of that war as war criminals was something I would imagine - and hope - most veterans resented.
That war changed people. He could have blamed the politicians - but not the veterans.
Kerry, in many people's minds, only succeeded in doing a disservice to his fellow veterans.
Their disapproval was made known when he wanted to become the CIC.
And exactly what disservice did Bush-Cheney and all of those chickenhawks do that resulted in a few million deaths and trillions in cost. Besides Kerry did not label all veterans as war criminals, i'ma veteran and I didn't view him in that manner. Actually I salute any man that volunteers to fight for his country, unlike your heros. You views are strictly political, and not in the best interest of our nation.

The problem for the GOP, as it is for all defeated, flailing parties, is that its leaders are sometimes oblivious to the party’s most serious weaknesses, or else they mistake those weaknesses for strengths.

QUOTES OF GUN CONTROL [Adolf Hitler explains why he confiscated the guns from the Jews.]
fdrs.org ^| Adolf Hitler

Posted on Wednesday, February 27, 2008 12:58:47 AM by grundle

http://www.fdrs.org/quotes_of_gun_control.htm...

"The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing."

- Adolf Hitler

German Weapons Law

On November 11, 1938, the Minister of the Interior, Wilhelm Frick, passed Regulations Against Jews' Possession of Weapons. This regulation effectively deprived all Jews of the right to possess firearms or other weapons.

WHY IS Senator Dianne Feinstein A JEW DOING THIS????

Republicans had a major comeback in 2010. Part of the reason for that is the people were getting tired of the incompetency and bulldozing ideologies down our throats on Capital Hill before that time.
The difference being...Republicans listen to the wishes of the people. They did then and they are now.
Let's wait and see if the Democrats follow suit when it comes to cutting the deficit and reforms.
The, cough, 2010 comeback was merely a reaction to a black man in the white house by folks of your ilk. Notice that the trend did not repeat in 2012 and will most likely disappear prior to the 2014 elections.

Well, they probably would and should have resented it but it never happened; just another lie from the nutcase gallery.
