I'll check your representation of the facts later Paul but, for the sake of argument I'll accept them for now. Even if you are correct, with your admitting Republicans had complete control of The Senate for 4,5 years and the White House at the same time, why weren't they able to "save us" from the evil, Godless,non-American Flag pin wearing, mostly homosexual Democrats in that long period of time??? Such inept governance does not warrant being repeated!
The majority has total control over the legislative agenda. You are simply wrong here.

As much as you'd like to think of Bush as Czar of the country and Republicans as supreme rulers of the congress, it simply is not even remotely the case.
A very nice Republican "Bedtime" story with no basis in reality........But I do enjoy a nice fairy tale from time to time.

A "role" in this mess????
(You'll see how much of a "role" the American voter thinks they had, on 11/4.

"Despite it's partisan bent".... That's like saying "Despite the unpleasantness at the end , overall you could say that the play at the Ford Theater that night was enjoyed by the Lincolns."
No matter how you Bush/McCain apologists try to torture logic & the English language, the American people fully understand who was really to blame here. .....You Republicans!....Just look at the polls & how McCain is plummeting in them & how many Congressional seats you guys are projected to lose this year.
My final proof is only a few weeks away now but if you care to join our bet, I'll be happy to accept some coal from you as well!
