FYI. Bush is not running for re-election. His 8 years are up and that's why we are having elections in November.

Please, don't get me started by starting with Katrina. The federal government did not blunder near as much as the state and local government did, and which I might note were at the time both Democrat administrations. The Louisiana people noted this and ousted a Democrat administration in their last state election.
But for some reason the Bush administration takes all the hits on the handling of the Katrina crisis. Few of those blaming Bush acknowledge that the federal government can not just jump in without the state asking for the assistance.
So Chelsea, I will gladly start with Katrina and go from there!

What impresses me VERY MUCH about many of the posts....the level of detail knowledge is only parroting what is peddled by the media. For example you will never hear on the media any of Bush's accomplishments, hence the devout believers also have nothing to say.
No spontaneity...no originality....very little substance...no concern for accuracy....no ability to weigh in the real fact plus or minus.

Why is the war in Iraq so absent in the news....hmmnnnnn...more good news than bad....can't have that can we!!!!!!

There used to be an old saying that unless YOU have FIRST HAND knowledge, believe none of what you hear and half of what you see...the latter adjusted for 21st century technology...be doubtful of what you see.

I thought this thread was about Obama and what he would do....not Bush!!...not Katrina!!
or the current snow storms....and please do try to conjure up non media inspired catharsis.

There I feel much better ....for now.

Heard it on the news this afternoon. Something like 7 0r 8 1/2 percent GNP for this bill.....amounting to over $800,000,000,000 (yes that is eight hundred billion over 7 or 8 year period) on top of the foreign aid that is already approved.....ON TOP OF THE FOREIGN AID WE ALREADY PAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is nothing more than taxing the USA to make the rest of the world OK by the politico's book.....Thank GOD the Senate had the sense to stall the bill from it's current stampede by Biden.
Your politicians at work...Biden and Obama (who wrote and sponsors the bill) knowingly steam rollering eight hundred million dollars.....

The silent majority is getting what it deserves....let the rich lawyers who don't give a damn about those they supposedly represent.....

Sorry English, to violate the thread but it struck a nerve when I herad it this afternoon and you triggered it again.

AT SOME POINT IN OUR EVOLUTION PEOPLE, WE JUST HAVE TO STOP THE OUT OF CONTROL SPENDING BY OUR LAW MAKERS AND PUT AMERICAN FIRST!!!!!

PUT AMERICA FIRST.......SILENT MAJORITY IS GOING TO LET US BECOME AN IMPOVERISHED NATION!!!!

Disgusted....BTK :edit: :redface:

??? ??? I agree totally. why would anyone vote for Obama. He says he wants change,but change for changes sake means nothing. He never really says anything specific ,just generality's. but his record is the most liberal of any recent candidate, his changes would push us closer to socialism and away from free enterprise. Mc Cain may not be perfect ,but he will keep us safe and secure. :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup:-Steve

Oshunluva: Obama also wanted reparitions from the U.S. government (our tax dollars) to pay for slavery. I was even born then ! I think if he does get the nomination more of this stuff will come out and the kool aid drinkers who like his buzz word 'change' will sober up--hopefully.

In his latest book, "The Audacity of Hope" Obama mentions on page 9 that he is a Christian. On page 10, he states that he believes in evolution, scientific enquiry and
global warming (tell that to the snowed in folks up north this year.)
I wonder if Christian and evolution can be melded in peace or if this is a conflicting statement.

Great question. Hard Ball moderator Chris Mathews certainly hit the proverbial nail-on- the-head last evening when he asked Obama supporters what legislation or bills did he sponsor since he became a Senator. They had no answer because they are nonexistent. Here is a candidate that wants to be President but has little or no success as a senator. I guess the Peter Principle applies here.

I saw the senator from Texas do his interview with Chris Matthews and Keith Olberman. It was horrible. The senator was so poorly prepared that he was an embarrassment to his state and the US Senate. He looked like a complete idiot. As Chris said "That's Hardball."

Mrs Obama recently stated"For the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country" Watch out what you ask for Democrats,you just might get it.

Mrs Obama really stepped in it there, she came across so poorly.
Her advisors suggested a quick apology, but it didn't come.
I have a hard time imagining her as first lady, however she's not up for election.

Now, what exactly have Barack's accomplishments been to date that are of significance?

Default Hope rings hollow

But our communities demand more from its leaders than hope because hope by itself is not a strategy. Hope doesnt protect you from terrorists, hope doesnt lower your taxes, hope doesnt help you buy a home, and hope doesnt ensure quality education for your kids. What we Republicans can speak to and the kind of leadership Americans demand (and we can provide) affords every citizen the opportunity to turn their dreams into reality and their hopes into action for themselves and their families. Without action, hope passively waits on others to solve problems. Without action, hope looks to next year instead of doing the hard work required today. Without action, hope is powerless to transform lives.

Michael Steele is a very impressive individual. It's unfortunate he lives in The Peoples' Republic of Maryland.

In his comments, substitute the word "change" for "hope". That's the other ring of this year's political circus and it rings just as hollow as hope.
