    I realize it was difficult having to spend years listening to gripes about the Bush Administration. Especially since so many of the gripes were so brutally meritorious. But recall this:

    For the first 8 months in office, Bush didn't do anything. I mean nothing. People are having fun saying Obama's done nothing, but he's flown around the world, meeting with foreign government officials of all ilk, he's pushing the gigantic health care bill, he's got the gi bill done, he's been around. Bush was in his office playing solitaire (and not on the computer) or in Crawford clearing brush for 8 months. A real, true nada if there ever was one. And no one was really griping.

    Then, tragedy strikes, 9-11. Bush goes on tv, delivers speech. Country rallies behind him. Supports him. His approval ratings soar.

    And then he proceeded to squander all the goodwill by not going after Bin Laden, instead instituting operation Clusterfuck/Blackwater/Halliburton, etc., etc. Then people griped about him. When they had a reason.

    See, that's how it works. Don't start griping from DAY ONE, even as you're obstructing him at every turn from DAY ONE. That's called disingenuous bullshit politics. Or, if you prefer, un-American, unpatriotic, traitorious....(I forgot all the terms, anyone have Michael Medved's number?) Cynical in extemis. Rovian. Satanic.

    I realize you guys fucked up so badly for so long, that you've been chomping at the bit for some "payback", but if you shoot your load before there's even been any real action, then you're just impotent.

    Sorry.

    I'm not even going to read this thread.

    I luves me my Silver and I desperately care about my Flashy.

    Just kill me now.

    Yes, our super-effective grassroots efforts have tangled the very halls of Congress and rendered the President impotent!

    Who is the boogeyman now? It must be Cheney's and Rush's fault!

    Your blithe dismissal of your own pursuit of political gain at any cost to the nation is grotesque.

    Jesus christ. Counting. One, two, three...

    As though your screen name alone wasn't enough to make my head implode.

    Ah, well. These things happen.

    Yes, but apparently the pursuit of political gain by feeding the country a basketful of empty campaign promises and lies is just dandy!

    There is one good thing about the country's current political situation: Rush and Hannity are infinitely more entertaining. You should tune in. They are on the radio stations that are still able to pay their bills.

    :dance:

    Right.

    No one's laughing at your ill-timed shtick.

    That's fine. I don't begrudge Flashy. I just put him in the correct category. :wink:

    I am not a republican.

    so your thread is inaccurate with regards to me as stated.

    if you had stated "Yo Republicans*, and also Independents like Flashy", you'd be more accurate...but obviously for some reason, you have decided to slate yourself totally against me, not to mention obviously have a barb at me, even though i have never been anything but respectful to you, no matter when i have disagreed, since i appreciated your help greatly last year. In turn, you have done nothing but take shots at me, and be nasty when you disagree.

    as such, my points still stand.

    i do not know anyone who is having "Fun" watching Obama flounder around with the same type of incompetence as GWB when he was supposed to be so brilliant. (perhaps Limbaugh and Beck)

    Fact is, he, for all his intelligence, was as unprepared for this job as was GWB.

    difference is, we all knew GWB was a complete moron when he was elected.

    Obama was supposed to be brilliant.

    instead, we have Urkel.

    he goes across the world to apologize, mend relations, tell everyone how bad we are, how sorry we are, that we need the world's help to change things...

    people across the world swoon, they say he is so smart, he is the type of american they love, this is what they were hoping for...then, they kick sand in his face, refuse to help, totally oppose, or simply outright refuse him.

    as for having to spend years listening to griping about the Bush administration, why would that be difficult when i was opposed to so much of his ridiculousness and i did not vote for him?

    -his absurd religious innuendos
    -his irrational stem cell opposition
    -his ridiculous Pro-Life stance
    -his idiotic anti-environmental policies
    -his stubborn anti-gay stance across all spectrums
    -his general uselessness

    as for you saying Bush was just hanging around playing solitaire and doing "Nada", whether you like it or not, Bush was actually very active i his first 8 months...just because his agenda was not yours, or mine, and was disagreeable you overlook and ignore that.

    in his first 8 months
    -he went right out and created the Office of Faith Based and Community Initiatives
    -he immediately announced a stem cell policy, which authorized funding, though with restrictions
    -he immediately pushed through the No Child Left Behind Act with help from Ted Kennedy
    -he immediately stated support for Taiwan, during the US-China plane incident
    -he enacted his tax plans almost immediately in July 01
    - he stupidly overturned the regulation on reduction on arsenic in drinking water



    so your assertions of him doing nothing are baseless...he did things that i did not agree with, but he certainly was not doing "nada"

    as for disagreeing with and not wanting to fall into line with Obama's plans, sorry, but there is a reason for opposition in our political system...

    and it is not "satanic"

    as for his being obstructed, the man has near total dominance of *BOTH* houses of congress.

    so far, the people who are "obstructing" him most, especially with regards to health care, are his own party...those in the center...who *CLEARLY* do not agree with his plans and are worried.

    if Obama wants to legalize marijuana, industrial hemp, unrestricted stem cell usage, gay marriage, gays in the military, enact campaign finance reform, enact huge increases in nuclear, solar, wind and hydro power, protect Israel's special relationship with the USA, stop Iran from achieving nuclear weapons, and a host of other issues, he will find a staunch ally in me.

    based on what he has done thus far, and what he plans to do, he has not done anything important that i can agree with, nor do his plans seem to indicate i will be anymore agreement as to how to get there.

    sorry if you do not like that, but disagreeing with someone's policies, is not "satanic".

    no, actually you do not do that.

    you simply have started lying, simply because i am an independent who disagrees very strongly with what Obama has been and plans to do.

    if he enacts much of what is stated above, he will have my support.

    but he does not support gay marriage
    has dragged his feet on gays in the military, and as i said months ago, he is not touching it at all while us troops are in combat.
    he does not support legalization of marijuana and industrial hemp

    and a host of other things.

    once again, you simply choose to insult me and distort my views completely.

    as i have said in the past, i will disagree with you, but i will never insult you or attempt to demean you and what you think, because of your assistance and advice last summer, despite your seeming vigorous new passion of the last few months in doing it to me.

    as such, i will be exiting this conversation, since i have made my views known on the things i believe in politically, and my feelings of your now seemingly regular attempts to distort my views.

    good night
