You lost an election - twice. It happens.
It's comforting to attribute your defeat to low information voters, because then you don't have to look at WHY you lost.
I know why we lost.
You and 65 million other people got fooled **twice** into voting for a presidential dud.

Libs truly are amazing. You give us an incompetent fool for a president and instead of acknowledging that possibility, you want to focus on the fact the we lost the election.

I'm sure the whole story does have a very private meaning, and I'm sure it's frustrating as hell.

It still doesn't have anything to do with the debate about Obamacare, because the obstacle you ran into existed before it and is based on the distinction between SSD & SSR.

The reference to the government taking over Medicare was a paraphrase of a woman quoted (at a Tea Party rally, I think) a couple years back who didn't seem to know Medicare WAS a government program.

<quoted text>Spent Saturday and Sunday in Joliet IL for my mom's sister's 50th wedding anniversary. Storm damage was minimal, but the imperative to flee was strong enough for everyone at the party (around 30 of us) to cram ourselves into the small basement of their home. Made for interesting conversation, but the really big deal for the rest of the family was that the Bears game was postponed. The party kinda pooped out after that...but it was lovely to see them, and everyone survived.
:)
Oh yeah, we've spent many an enchanted evening in the storm room.

What slays me is so many in Tornado Alley, esp. TX/OK, don't have basements! Whaddupwiddat?

Aside: I've never been afraid of storms. I attribute this to my Mom, who, when we were small, would make out like it was an adventure. When I was 4, we lived a short time in public housing w/o a basement. I vividly recall being woken in the night, and brought downstairs, where Mom had turned the couch over and made a "tent", which we sat under and had crackers and milk while she read to us. I know now that much of south downtown was damaged or destroyed, just three blocks away. You wuz a peach, Ma!

I personally do not like Obama's personality. It seems what I call plastic. I liked him better last week when he was admitting he screwed up.(not that I think that will change anything.)
If anything, I liked him LESS after last week. I detest people who apologize with qualifiers like "I'm sorry YOU felt way" or "I screwed up" instead of "I know I hurt you and there's no excuse for it" or just plain old "I LIED to you." Obama IS a hypocritical lying sonofabitch and this was a classic example of it.

Funny thing, that ... you sound just like some libs who are still crying in their whine about Bush beating two successive Democrats.

You did lose the election, and you're looking for a scapegoat just as they did.

I'd HATE to think of what you'd be doing if Obama had won either election by -543,895 popular votes...

Our Willie has been awaiting its arrival for several days now!
(Our fitful discussions of 'current events' haven't been current or numerous enough, apparently, as we've been deeply engrossed in a mudslinging competition for some time now.)
Carry on....but be ready to be told that this topic is over and done, regardless of the thread's title. Your post disparaged the man. For future reference, if you fawn over him, or give credit to him for anything positive or Presidential, however, you'll be allowed to continue that discussion as long as you care to.
Enjoy!
What a pantload, Kat. The topic is over BECAUSE IT'S OVER. Bush left office FIVE YEARS AGO. Everyone moves on, even me.

What starry-eyed and/or ditto-headed ideologues of all strains can't grasp is the informed voter votes for an agenda, not a person. McCain AND Romney were forcibly morphed by the extremists dog-tail into the same ol' same ol' that got us the mess in 1989 and the travesty in 2008, and the informed moderates among those 65 million finally realized we ain't havin' no more o' that. They rejected it in 1992, and the main reason Bush got in the first time was a mild case of fellatio (for which I will forever be contemptuous of Clinton), and the main reason Bush survived the 2nd time can be epitomized by "timely" terror alerts.

Until the RNC finds a way to summarily reject the old school extremist virus and still win a national election, this teeter-totter will continue.

I'm not afraid of storms either, but for a different reason.

When I was a kid I remember Dad driving through a storm trying to get home before it hit. We were at an intersection stopped at a light when a funnel still forming passed over, but wasn't near the ground yet. Dad had a 53 Chevy that the wind damn near knocked over, and the hail dinged the body up bad. It touched down a couple miles E-NE of where we were and tore up part of St. Louis, killing 20 people.

Prove my assertion that Bush lovers are welcomed, and bush haters are disparaged within these hallowed halls, incorrect.

I've moved on from the election. Sorry to hear that you haven't. Let me know when you changed into you big boy pants and we can discuss -----> THIS PRESIDENT <------

The only reason you keep falling back on R's having lost the last two elections is you have no good essay about the guy who won. 5+ years of blunders. No one here is stupid, Willie. If Obama were doing a good job and wasn't running neck and neck with Jimmy Carter for the hall of shame award, you'd be tossing confetti, wearing a party hat and the I TOLD YOU SO'S would be coming from you.

My current State of residence gets a lot of flack from transplants who just don't understand why more folks don't have basements in tornado alley. They quickly discover that no builder worth his salt will guarantee a basement structure in such rocky and clay-ey terrain, against collapse, water damage, or stormproofing. It's just not practicable to blast into hundreds of feet of rock and clay to build a basement in this area. The newest craze (and I hope it lasts awhile) is safe rooms built above ground to withstand the weather. Lots of companies are sprouting up offering this service, and they're doing VERY very well. Jobs jobs jobs...

As for loving storms, I stood in the back door and watched the ones that raced through my Aunt's neck of the woods, while the rest of the chickens sardined themselves downstairs...it was just a little wind and rain, and I needed a smoke.

Unless someone comes in and talks nice about him.(Which, I'll admit, is rare, but nonetheless conversationally productive.)

As badbob can readily attest.

Now that we've had our little 'lip service' to congeniality, let's move on...unless you'd like to show me where anyone whose opinion of Herr Bush was glowing, has been invited to shut up because the subject was closed.

I'll wait for you too....

Fellatio from an ugly girl.

If she'd been Faith Hill, rather than whatshername, He'd probably have tried to run again...and maybe even won.

No, you didn't strike a nerve - but you desperately wanted to.

As usual when you try to hard (either with me or lisw), you failed miserably and ended up looking pathetically petty.

I don't claim to be smarter than everyone else - never have. I'm just a guy who's read a couple books and likes to talk about politics - but merely exchanging insults with the other party/philosophy doesn't really interest me much. I don't enjoy more than a minute or two of trash talk about sports rivalries, and in politics my attention span for it is much smaller.

Why would I try and dispute the obvious? What possible reason would you have for thinking I would dispute it?
For that matter, other than as a useful prop why would you even reply to a drive by poster?

Bush is not the topic of this thread any longer, the title notwithstanding. You gotta be pretty silly (i.e., Yellow Star) to claim that Bush is the only legitimate subject than can be discussed here.
