Republicans: Only We Can Fix Mess We Caused!

This is evidently the Republicans sales pitch as to why they should win in November , according to Jon Stewart.....The Daily Show.

Considering they have had control of the White House for the last 8 years & control of Congress for 12 of the last 14 years.....He has a good point doesn't he?

John McCain's speech last night was trying to convince us that he, a 26 year fixture in Congress, at age 72, with a 95% voting record backing Bush is the real agent of change in Washington??

Give me a break!

Hate to splash cold water on you Devil but this democrat congress is the most do nothing in recent history and has the lowest approval rating to go with it. Pelosi (I've almost sold 100 copies of my stupid book) and Reid are worse than worthless. They came into office promising to do many things including stop the war in Iraq. They were all talk and no action. If I were a democrat, I'd be steaming mad at the lot of them.

Allot of truth in what you say Terry...except that the reason their approval rating is so low is for 2 reasons:
1. They haven't impeached Bush or Cheney so they have violated their oaths
2. They haven't stopped GW Bush's family war/occupation in Iraq, the only beneficiary of which has been Exxon-Mobil, so again they (Pelosi & Reid) have violated their oath!

I am very angry with them (Pelosi & Reid) & have sent numerous letters to the DNC to express my anger.

But let's not lose sight of the real villains in this piece.........The Bush Administration!

No Mike...What I meant ( Chickens have come home to roost. ;)) is that after almost 14 years of Republican domination of Washington with a no oversight "let our rich buddies in business run the country" attitude, their economic, foreign policy & morality failures have caused the worst situation this country has faced since the Great Depression of 1929. Want proof?...read yesterday stock market & next weeks unemployment figures & home foreclosures & bank failures &........on & on.

Oh yes......there are grave problems in Washington , but I doubt the American voter is going to fall for the "Give us another chance & we promise to do better" BS this time!
We'll all see in a few months.

Why wouldn't Pelosi allow a vote on drilling for oil?

I'll let T. Bone Pickens answer that question. More drilling will not even put a dent in our energy dependence problem, & the little it would accomplish will take 10 years to be realized. More drilling is just a RNC smoke screen to hide behind & be able to point their fingers at anyone else for election rhetoric purposes only.
Oil men are running this country & have run it for for the last 8 years overtly......& ....I'll say it again....."The chickens are coming home to roost!"

Lions and Tigers and Bears.... Oh my! :lol:
Nice to see Devil is back...
True to form...
It would help your rants...
If you included some data...
to back up your points...
that did not come from Media Matters...

Soros began buying up the first generation of 527s, including outfits like MoveOn, ACT (America Coming Together), and Media Matters. Soros also played a pivotal role in the 2004 candidacy of Howard Dean, who bombed as a Presidential candidate, but was rewarded for his access to Soros loot with the chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee, after John Kerry's loss to George Bush in November 2004.

I said my piece & really have nothing to add. I have no illusions as to my chances of changing anyone's mind here but I'm enough of a masochist :D , & feel this is so important to our country, that I will continue to badger my brother coal burners (while staying on topic ;) ) until the election in November is over.

Just a few more months guys! :lol: :devil:

If you listen to his whole statement Stephen, he says "you can't drill your way out of it"....meaning fgn oil dependence.
I agree that we should do everything we can to get off oil,(drill, wind, nuclear, etc) & now even the Democrats are leaning that way,...BUT anyone who really believes that the oil men who run this country want to get us away from being dependent on their product, is just kidding themselves.

FYI...
Even the Dems make money off the war machine....
The barrage of attacks on Halliburton drove the company stock down, from a peak of $40 down to $26—at which point Soros began buying up Halliburton shares. Between the third quarter of 2005, and the fourth quarter of 2006, Soros bought 2 million shares of Halliburton, at an average price of just over $31.

As the media attacks on Halliburton—in part, driven by Soros's anti-Bush/Cheney and anti-war zeal—died down by late 2006, Halliburton shares quickly rebounded. By early 2008, with Halliburton shares nearing $50, Soros had made an estimated $40 million in clear profit, making him one of the larger Bush-Cheney war profiteers.
