Kind of a metaphor for Republicans and tea baggers I'd say. They have so much more than the rest of us, want more and yet still manage to run their toys amuck. While, incidentally telling us they are just like the rest of us and that the real problem is big govt., immigrants, the poor etc. What a bunch of greedy losers.

Plus, the grapevine says he was drunk and at the stern......I hope he pays his staff very well so he can pass some of his millions around.

How is someone with more toys than you a "greedy loser". And yet, your comrades run a silver spoon-fed moron who got ahead by his connections, and hid under his desk at the slightest sign of trouble! BTW: it's tea-party, you imbecile.

You democancers are priceless. How do you equate fishing to tea party? Are you really that afraid of the tea party movement? I say go tea party! At least Bush didn't murder a girl then cover it up like the face of the democancer party Teddy. Think about it.

This is more of the pap republicans like to push. You are either a Bree eating, prius driving elitist when it suits them, or you are a welfare cheat when it suits them. Which is it republicans?

I took unemployment for 1 year in 2000 to 2001. Aside from that I have been employed my entire adult life. I make 6 figures. I pay my taxes. I have never, never voted republican and I never will. I like paying taxes. They buy me civilization.

It sounds like the elder Bush's skill at the helm has not changed from the time he had his hand on the helm of the nation. His son was far worse.

How are you republicans liking that fiscal reform bill that is about to become law? Won't Obama's incredible legislative success make it hard to push the idea that he is incompetent? Oh that's right, you guys don't care about facts, you only care about personal gain no matter what the cost to society and our future.

Good luck washing that nasty oil stain off of yourselves...

If it is 'tea-party,' someone should tell this lady.

As for Obama, you are just lying to run him down. Republicans have zero relationship with the truth. I know you guys are just mad because Bush (43) was recently named to be one of the worst presidents in history in a survey of presidential scholars.

I love Obama. Best president ever. That fact that he makes you guys apoplectic with impotent rage is just icing on the cake.

Instead of accidentally killing someone, Bush intentionally invaded a nation that didn't need to be invaded, at a hideous cost in blood and treasure. Kennedy is dead. Don't you need to find a new horse to beat?

Coincidentally Maine is where Obama will be vacationing AGAIN. Guess he decided to not vacation in the Gulf as he urged us all to do.

This is so funny. One could write a book about how this parallels what Bushco Sr. and Bushco Jr. did to our great nation.

After Bushco Sr. ran the boat aground, I am assuming that the rescue team was headed up by Our President, Mr. Obama.

What a great story line. Art imitates life.

This is standard from the republican playbook. You are not smart enough to address the issues I raise so you insult me. Boo hoo, I am so hurt. Come back when you have 2 brain cells to rub together.

Actually, I was referring to Mark Dayton, not Obama. But, if you think our rage is impotent, just wait til the next election when the worst president in American history is kicked to the curb! And, if you're not apoplectic, you're not paying attention.

Maybe if the "issues you raised" were remotely on topic instead of just looking for an argument.
