Well, who screwed things up for the past 8 years to cause this problem? I'll give you a hint. There was a republican pres and congress for a long time.
This is an OIL site with a few forums like this one about other automotive topics. It is not a political soap box for you to spew your left leaning agendas and views. However a response is in order.
WOW! Talk about a bunch of bull in the quote above and your other leftist comments in this thread. Do you have a poster of Nancy Pelosi and Hillary in bikini's, sitting on Obama's lap, on your wall or what? You have GOT to be joking laying all this on the GOP right? Seems to me there has been a left controlled Congress and Senate for a long time as well.
Oh wait, that is what the left does. They go along with whatever is popular at the time and then if it doesn't work out they are suddenly against it. You can not run a country based on gallop polls or which way the wind is blowing on any given day. You have to do what you feel is right and have some integrity even if it means losing votes come the next election. That is how the GOP governs. The left governs by election year polls.
The left can not lay all the blame on Bush and the GOP for the economy, the war in Iraq, etc... They were right there with the GOP, as they were losing seats left and right so they migrated to the middle voting wise, until things started going bad( no political party at fault - just happened )then suddenly they were against "it"( whatever "it" topic you wish to use )from the begining. What a bunch of idiots! Do you remember all the Dem's out on the lawn singing God Bless America showing support for President Bush going into Iraq? So Bush was lied to and given bad info about the WMD's. However, he should have known and because he didn't he is evil. The lefties that voted for it can claim they were mislead and it absolves them of any responsibility for their actions though. Ah heck, they can lie and say they voted against it and our leftist media will not call them on it so our dumb arse voting public will believe it. The left lies and the media swears to it( or covers it up ).
Have I got it right? That seems to be party doctrine. Deny, duck, and cover and it is backed up/covered up by the media for the most part. I seem to remember a certain left President who was a master of that not too long ago.
It's ok, the left is in complete control right now and rapidly taking our country down a road towards socialism and communism with their out of control spending, we aren't out of money because we can just print or borrow more, and let's take everything from the rich and give it to the poor mentallity. They are also undoing the things Bush and the GOP set in place to protect our country from another 9/11. Let's see the Liberals spin this when it all blows up in their face and people realize just how much money we are going to owe plus the HUGE mess our country gets into with these socialist policies. Let's see them blame Bush and the GOP when terrorists hit our country again because the left is worried about the civil rights of terrorists and has let them all go back to their countries to do it to us again.
Our grankid's, grandkid's, grankids are going to be paying this mess off. Don't be surprised if in 2010 the GOP doesn't start taking seats back as people vote out the left and their irresponsible and out of control spending and asanine policies like letting known terrorists go with an apology for how they were treated. I can't wait to see the left spin that.
The most recent left wins can be attributed more to anti Bush votes( voting against a politician because he is a member of the same party as an outgoing President you don't like is a stupid reason to vote for another politician )than support for these current policies. The left is going to dig their own grave. Hopefully there will be a country left for the GOP to save.
The left is a complete joke without an ounce of integrity in any of them. The GOP made some mistakes sure but our country is( was )safe because of Bush's policies and the economic collapse is squarely on the watch of BOTH parties. Nothing Bush or the GOP did caused this collapse. Frankly nothing the Dem's did caused it either. Lack of action by both parties when energy went nuts is a big factor but neither side caused it. They just didn't do anything to head it off before it was too late. Oh, and throwing billions upon billions at those who DID cause it, with no accountability for how the money will be used, is not the answer.
I will keep watching FOX news thanks. Why don't you continue to worship Keith Olberman on MSNBC and his nut job liberal rantings and ravings. They seem right up your alley.
