    He had ringing ears so loud he had to have a hearing aid to hear over it. And then we now find out he may have been alzheimered.

    ... and that doesn't even address Iran Contra....

    WHat I don't get is how ANYONE believes Republicans are better with government money than Democrats? Certainly they are experts at money -- making it and stealing it. But not managing it!

    This is from the same author.
    The title is "Vote Republican if...."
    (written the day of the midterm elections).


    The 2010 midterm elections are upon us.  Voting is today and will determine the fate of Congress for the next 2 years.  While many have already made up their minds about who to vote for, those undecided potential voters should be reminded to vote Republican if they believe in the following things.

    Vote Republican if you call Obama a socialist, marxist, communist, and/or fascist (91%)

    Vote Republican if you believe or are not sure that health care reform is a diabolical government plot to create kill grandma (57%)
    Vote Republican if you think or haven’t made up your mind about whether Obama was born in the USA (72%)

    Vote Republican if you don’t support embryonic stem cell research (62%)

    Vote Republican if you are hiding behind the libertarian banner despite being a social conservative who is just too chicken to admit their polices are bad

    Vote Republican if you have too short of an attention span to see the thousands of positive acts of change and reform done despite an unprecedented campaign of obstruction

    That just said it all.
    I'm so mad I could smash my fist through a wall. But won't.

    Probably won't be able to stop myself once those hearings on the Obama administration begin.GOD- the irony!!
    You know--those "urban" cats and their "walking around money"......so unlike the CPAC crowd are used to, With their yachts and private clubs.

    We never tell the truth about things in America. We sugar-coat and white-wash everything. Why are we such babies?

    Oh, and Reagan showed Cheney "deficits don't matter".
    60% of our current one is tax cuts.>another Reagan Legacy< Used to blackmail the president so gvt. could continue to function.

    The keys to the Henhouse was given to the Wolves. Would Ronnie be proud?
