just another example of how ungodly and hypocritcal the right has become...i would feel alot better if they would just admit they are not godly and step down from the value platform...then we could proceed with debate...but until the right admits they have fallen into the worldly snares and abandoned their values i cant take them seriously myself.

There's more:

"Republicans Who Opposed The Stimulus Continue To Pan It As A ‘Failure,’ While Also Taking Credit For Its Success

Rep. Geoff Davis (R-KY)

Rep. Geoff Davis (R-KY)
Every Republican in the House and nearly every Republican Senator voted against the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (also known as the stimulus). Although the Congressional Budget Office has credited the stimulus with creating up to 1.6 million jobs, the same GOP politicians who opposed the stimulus have attempted to justify their opposition to the policy by smearing it as a failure. But as ThinkProgress has documented, the same politicians are returning to their districts to take credit for the economic success of the stimulus.

In the past month, several more GOP lawmakers went home to their district to praise and claim credit for successful stimulus programs:

There's more links to more Republican hypocrites at the bottom of the web page.

I want the Dems to go ahead and pass the health care bill without any Republicans and Obama to use recess appointments to fill the vacant posts Republicans and that dino schmuck Nelson are blocking.

risk pool...without the young and healthy paying it wouldnt be affordable or doable...if only sick old people paid into it then it would go bankrupt quick....and its just like car insurance is mandated...young people do get sick from time to time and it aint right for people like you to have pay for the uninsured so everyone pays in and everyone is covered...people like you that wouldnt participate would need medical help someday and expect us democrats to bail u out....so u pay now and use it when u need it..that simple.

As long as you understand it's unconstitional. Hey, who told you it was affordable to being with? We just raised our debt limit, nothing is really affordable.

EVERYTHING is unconstitutional to you people.

Nothing new from the GOP. Women voting...unconstitutional.

Social Security...unconstitutional.

Medicare for the elderly...unconstitutional.

BS! MOST of us are evolving with the times along WITH the Constitution!

Not true. There are many things that are constitutional. However, federal government is limited to those powers specifically granted to it by the Constitution. If you had ever bothered to read it, you'd know that to be true. Since you seem to be a cliff's notes short attention span kind of person, let me boil it down for you:

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." - 10th Amendment
Nothing new from the GOP. Women voting...unconstitutional.
Women voting is constitutional. See the 19th Amendment.
Social Security...unconstitutional.
Medicare for the elderly...unconstitutional.
Both of these programs are unconstitutional because there is no power or authority delegated to the federal government to operate such programs. Remember the 10th Amendement quoted above?
BS! MOST of us are evolving with the times along WITH the Constitution!
You want to put the cart before the horse. If you want to make an unconstitutional act constitutional, you must FIRST amend the Constitution. Sure, the Constitution has evolved, but it does not currently provide the federal government with the lawful power or authority to implement the myriad of Marxist programs and policies that you hold with such adoration.

I believe the following quote is most apropos:

"If you're not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you're not a conservative at forty you have no brain." - Winston Churchill

I'm guessing you're not yet forty.

Tort reform and insurance across state lines isn't unconstitional. Why won't Democrats touch these issues?

When I said "everything" you know I was being sarcastic. And yes, at one time a woman voting was considered unconstitutional, much like many of the things YOU consider unconstitutional today.

That was due to our "bitching" (as you like to phrase it) by the way.

Isn't the Obama administration taking credit for Iraq? Joe Biden is now taking credit for the things he was completely against with the last guy.

I don't remember. It's a photo I found months ago. I can't remember what it says. I wish I could but you get the gist just by looking at the picture. It would still be nice to read it though.

I couldn't get the picture that came with the article to post so I chose one of my own.
