Go to Bed!
While I agree with Marshmallow that the Had Enough's characterization of the immigration issue and Bush's secretly being a liberal may not be entirely correct, I take umbrage with Marshmallow's nonsensical conclusion. His words as follows:
Bush was your man, twice. The first time you were blinded by Monica, the second by GWOT. Now here we are.
but don't be trying to pawn your guy off on liberals. You
can't blame us for everything! You stuffed your mattress now
sleep on it.
I love how we need to be blind to vote Republican, while it is obviously cleared eyed to go the other way. Plus, the only proper course of action when betrayed by those we voted for is to surrender. So Marshmallow let me be very clear:
1. I voted for Bush the first time because 8 years of Clinton was more than enough for me, Monica being the LEAST of it. Gore would have been four more years of Clinton, except Gore lacks Clinton's charisma, political savvy and pragmatic streak. In other words, Gore would have made James Earl Carter look good.
2. I voted for Bush the second time because his position on the War was correct. He is still correct regarding the war, the current state of affairs there not withstanding. We need to win, "There is no substitute for victory!" I think someone else said that one before, you may have heard of the guy.
The ersatz war hero you all found to run against Bush in 2004 was hailed as our saviour. This saviour knifed his comrades in the back during his Senate committee "Genghis Khan" speech back in 1972(3?). So forget about blaming the swifties, the second JFK was simply no John F. Kennedy.
It's the fault of the Democrat Party alone they could not find a real candidate, let alone a Irish named Frenchman poseur whose grade point average was lower than the idiot in the Whitehouse. Blind are we? You are the ones who are blind, blind with hate for Bush.
3. The immigration mess is something that has taken 40 years to evolve. "Now here we are." you are so right in that Marshmallow.
3.a Bush is a total idiot for his stance on the immigration issue. Why? Because it is at odds with his positions relative to pts 2 above, the social security mayhem it will create AND the whole idea that we are a nation of laws, not whims (feelings). Good intentions pave the road to hell.
3b. Bush's stand is also at odds with the conservative ideal of not buying votes with money and favors. The whole party since it came to power in 1994 has fallen into this, big time. The only reason the party did not pay a steeper penalty for violating this ideal sooner, is the guys on the other side of the aisle have a forty+ year track record of being just as bad or worse. Since taking power the Democrats have renewed their creativity in this regard with a vengeance, "the most ethical congress ever" indeed.
So in conclusion with respect to us lying in our bed, and taking it in the prone position, the heck with that. We voted these characters in, we will vote them out. How did that old hymn go? Ah yes: "We shall overcome!"
