Other places they blow things up, fight, have violence,
protest in the streets, things like that.

Here, we have a drink, blow up balloons, sigh, kick a
can, scowl, turn off the tv, and go to work in the
morning.

The President of the USA holds a press conference, addresses
the election losses, handles a resignation, and answers the
liberal media press questions on live tv.

The piece of crow hanging out his mouth is a little unsightly,
and that tire tread on his back is a little messy, from being
run over by the DNC mack truck...but, he's still standing, and
fighting.



I like that about us.
I like that about our system.
Faults and all, it ain't bad.

We just get back to work..........win or lose.
Both parties.

The Democrats had a majority w/him before, and he
got tax cuts through, and education reform he wanted.

Remember?


The fact is the Democrats can pass all the things they
want, and he can veto it, and they can override that.

They ran on one issue: hating Bush. Not much else.

The news keep telling us today the Dems elected a lot
of 'moderate to conservative' Democrats to office last night.
OK, let's see just how moderate to conservative they are
fiscally? I'd bet not much in reality.

To win the White House they need some Republicans
to vote for Hillary. They can't do that by negating all
GOP platforms across the board.

Also, the fact is that Bush is on the same page as
Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid on two issues:

Amnesty and Immigration Reform. He wants amnesty
and worker programs expanded. Fact. Always has.
We will get a big amnesty push through from Bush,
and Pelosi will love it, and want it to be more sweeping.


Education - he likes to spend on this, a lot. So do they.
Bush and Kennedy on education tend to agree, not disagree.

Everything else, like Clinton, who had a GOP Congress ...
if it's popular, you try to make it your own in the media,
i.e., welfare reform. Do you think he wanted that? No.
He took and got most of the credit for it though.


Not much they can find common ground on, but, yes, there
are more than enough that exist for them to work on.

Confrontations won them the election in 2006, now,they
have to lead. They have to produce something other than
a dumping stock market, as we see this morning.


Look to McCain, and that's where Bush will likely go too
on policy ideas.

And you guys wonder why so many young
people don't care. This kind of Washington
BS is one of the reasons.

Spend so much time fighting each other
that you don't get anything done or care to.

Instead of really trying to care to get things done
and benefit the people they serve, it's all about them.

Love ya' babe,
but come on already.

I take solice in that even if nothing changes
I atleast tried to do something with my vote
and have some kind of say, I guess.

I'm okay with Rumsfeld's resignation.

He had become the focal point of the debate,
and that was taking away from the work.

He had offered his resignation twice before
to Bush, and Bush turned him down.

He didn't want him to be a scapegoat, which
he ended up being anyway.

He served well, and he served under tough times.

But, 6 years is a long time for any Secretary in
a Cabinet. It was time to go. I would have
preferred he done it before the election, but
it was his call.



People come and go in administrations all the time.
Some more famous than others.

Khofi Anan's swipe at Bush today is amusing. The guy is
under investigation for all kinds of UN bribery deals, he
fails in Somlia, Rwanda, Sudan, etc., and he's bashing
Bush. Khofi, don't let the doot hit you on the way out....
what exactly did you do to help Darfur?

I assume Conyers and Kennedy and Leahy will rake Bush
over the coals all the time...how long can the Democrats
keep their true Far Left antics in the closet? Not very.

That's okay.

I assume Michael Moore and Cindy Sheehan and
Hugo Chaves will be regular guests in the Congressional
chambers to cheer on things.

Dems won, they can do that.

Will it hold?
Will it be what the public wants?
Will it be enough to win in 2008?

Again, in 1992, Clinton won.

By 1994, the GOP swept into the House with
a majority of over 20 more than what the Dems
got last night...breaking a nearly 60 year hold
the Dems had.

Great news for 1996 right for the GOP?

No, they lost to Clinton again in 1996. So much
for the sweeping change nationally.


Voters are fickle in the USA. We vote in and out
what we don't like, or what we hate a little less.

The only world leader standing up to fight terrorism, and call
them what they are: terrorists and murderers. For that, he's
a dunce. OK. If you say so. I forgot, all terrorism started in 2001,
nothing happened before that, ever, anywhere in the USA or to our
interests.


1979. Jimmuh Carter. Iran. From then to now, check out the
terrorist attacks to the USA and what we didn't do to deal w/them
for years.


Uncouth? Unpolished?

Unlike the leader of Italy or France or Russia or China?

Yeah, kissing a kids tummy was really swift on camera.

Imprisoning dissidents is really cool in China.


Getting a facelift would be more stylish I suppose.


Or just denouncing the Holocaust, that would be better?


That's a real stylish group at the UN.


World leaders do that too....

Or hold up Noam Chomsky's book at the UN...that's a real leader
for you.



No offense, Bill Clinton always reminded me of WC Fields, and
Al Gore of Forest Gump. Kerry sounds like Lurch.

I was responding to you comparing Bush's ignorance to any other president in the history of this country. Also, I don't recall LBJ starting the war in Vietnam, I believe he inherited it as the next President of the U.S. will inherit Iraq. What I'll remember LBJ for is for passing the Civil Rights Act.

The Iraqi War?
The failures in Afghanistan?
Abysmal domestic policies?
Joblessness ...? [and please don't quote me data that doesn't include those unemployed so long that they are no longer counted; or military numbers that further [and falsely] decreases the unemployment rate.
Failure to prevent or even take a proactive approach to preventing 9/11 ?!
The Israel / Lebanon conflict.
The dismantling of the Constitution?
Human / Equal Rights policies?
Employing every WRONG person for the job that he could possibly find [but who would each suckle at his teat at a moment's notice.]
The news keep telling us today the Dems elected a lot

OK, let's see just how moderate to conservative they are

Humph....?
Interesting...

To win the White House they need some Republicans
to vote for Hillary. They can't do that by negating all

Democrats are held to a different standard.
We're ALL liberals, and hate our military.
We help terrorists every chance we get.
In fact, now that we've taken pretty much both Houses, America is doomed, because we Liberals will now bring in as many terrorists as possible to kill off the Republicans and conservative Democrats.

And let’s not forget the liberal media like FOX, MSNBC.COM, NY Times, all the Clearwater satellite and media companies, etc...

We are the most evil political party or entity to walk the face of the planet. Far worse than Al Qaeda.

DEFEATED & DEJECTED... I love it!!!

I'm going to tell you guys something, where I live, here in the South do you know why the majority of folks vote Republican? It's because when you go to Church on Sunday morning you have a preacher telling you "Voting Republican is Voting for Jesus". It's the reason why I'm staying out of churches from now on. Voting for a continued war with death tolls that continue to rise, while people in our own country starve, if that's a vote for Jesus Christ then they don't know the same Jesus that I understand him to be in my heart! It's a separation of Church and state, and religion has no place in politics! These Bible Beaters need to learn to think for themselves instead of listening to rich preacher man. Maybe someday the south will get over the mindset is has of being brainwashed by the bible. NUFF SAID!!!!!

I just wish people would realize the South being the Bible belt that it is is honestly brainwashed by the Preachers thinking the Republicans are always right. These are people that are firmly against Homosexual unions, Abortions, Stem Cell Research, and so forth. But these are the same people that are also far more poorer than the North and greatly have to deal with what congress hands them. They need to see that even with Republicans in charge there are still gays, in fact I think our homosexual side is growing! They also need to realize there have been several Republican's in the Presidency and in Congress who have not stopped Abortion, they might run on the platform against it but they are far too ballsless to ever try and stop such a thing. Stem Cell Research it has been proven time and time again doesn't kill any children or future children that will be used, it's cast offs that people cannot use or will not use. Besides I find it hard to believe that if half the biblethumpers had a seriously ill diabetic child or their husband suffering from parkinsons that they would feel so strongly against stem cell research. Besides the War in Iraq is killing more innocents than almost any other nation has put to death. I just wish these people would honestly open their hearts, read their bible themsevles and see what God actually is saying to them. Because it sure as hell isn't giving money to the rich, because we know how God feels about the rich. Besides it's awfully damn odd that all year for the past 2 years really here in the US gas has been sky high, yet about 2 months before the election they mysteriously start lowering in price. I'm telling you Repubs not all of us are that stupid!

In reference to the second bolded text:
Have you noticed that the prices have already begun to edge upward now that the election is over?
These Republicans and their evil energy/oil cohorts have no shame, nor morals. I'm hoping that the Congress will acknowledge this conspiracy and deal with it now that there is a flipped House. I'm not holding my breath though.
