Well Norton, President Bush got blamed for a hurricane and the flooding of New Orleans. I assure you he had nothing to do with either yet the burning tire was hung round his neck all the same.

Dingus, I really do not believe that any reasonable person truly blamed President Bush for the formation and path of a hurricane that hit New Orleans

what a lot of people blamed President Bush for was yes, his response

when you are the President of ALL the people you are supposed to give a damn

It must be depressingly awful going through life being relentlessly both misinformed and uninformed at the same time

lost in an endless sea of vague talking points, repeating long ago debunked lies

believing only what one wants to believe, blindly clinging to long lost familiar bullsh!t

just as the South has to wait for every last ignorant bigot to just die off

so does the rest of America wait .........

Nigga please.

It must be comforting to believe that only those with whom you disagree suffer the above maladies.

John

yes John, it IS comforting for me to know that the political party that I support with my vote
stands firmly against bigotry and racism, while your party quietly welcomes such people into their fold as reliable base voters

it IS comforting to me that my party believes women ought to be paid the same as men for doing the exact same work, while every single one of your Republican Senators voted against such recent attempted legislation

I don't have to defend my party's positions because they are "right"

go ahead, JohnE, let's hear you defend why you vote for ass-holes like these guys:

Missing photo ID#359956


I could go on and on with more examples John, want to start with the complete failure
of your party's core philosophy of "non regulation" and how you "own" the 08 Recession
and the loss of millions and millions of American jobs?

or perhaps you want to defend how your Republicans failed in preventing 9/11
when simply ordering commercial airliners to have secure and lockable cockpit door who have prevented the hijackings, as Israel has done for decades?

maybe you want to defend the loss of thousands of our soldiers and trillion of dollars spent on the miserable failure of "nation building' in Iraq?


but let's start with should be easy for you, defend and justify voting against women being paid the same as men for doing the same work

A chorus will say it was the lame Federal response which garnered the criticism, to which I will say in advance = BULLSH#T.

So for 8 years I heard saw and wrote President Bush stupid this, president Bush lame that, president Bush war crimes here president Bush disconnect there.

It should be absolutely no wonder that this shoe is on the other foot now.

I don't like it any more than you men.

I have to say I laughed out loud at this one. Yep, I truly thought it was Bush directing the hurricane. I would have been ok with his inept response had he not directed it there, but since he did I felt obliged to get upset. Yep, then I used this directing of hurricane Katrina to get all mad about Iraq and Afghanistan, rather than getting mad about Iraq and Afghanistan since they were unprecedented, pre-emptive, overly aggressive military maneuvers which somehow justify spending more on the military during a time of overall global peace than we did when nearly the entire world was at war with one another, actively trying to defeat one another using military force. Wow.

And now apparently Obama is guilty of equally bad transgressions against American and the rest of the world, so the criticism he is getting is just the republicans saying the same kinds of things about Obama as were said about Bush, and all these criticisms are equally valid? Wow again.

Dingus, you are either trolling here or you are so out of touch with reality it's literally laugh out loud funny.

Edited to add: And apparently all of America is bloodthirsty for war as well, and it's not just a small minority clinging to their nearly extinct version of reality.

Sketch, I find it interesting you have avoided commenting on this very concise criticism of your views so far. This really sounds right up your alley:

Ken M wrote:

You get the sense that the poster just doesn't have a clue what is involved in being President. Drinking from a firehose doesn't capture it. Drinking from 20 firehoses perhaps does.

And then, when you get politicians that actually give you an HONEST answer, you go all apeshit on them. What are you teaching them to do, and what are you teaching them that you want?

And your right, you never said the democrats and republicans are the same thing, you just said that they pull identical types of political stunts both with the same volition towards the American people. It's like you saying "the car drove away" and I claimed you said "the car accelerated away", and you got your panties in a wad because I misrepresented what you had said. It's laughable.

Jammer - I find it laughable that you keep making up crap that I supposedly said.

I really liked this gem.

Sketch, got any data/info/rationality for us so we can verify your ridiculous claim that one man/organization owns America? As in all of it, every single person, or even some kind of majority, something above 1% or so?

Anyway, according to you then, they own you too right? So, by default, they control the words you write as much as they control the words I write, right? Wow, sounds totally rational.

Also, if you do nothing but repeat the talking points formed by the Bush administration and GOP politicians in general, you are sticking up for them, and you do nothing but repeat the talking points formed by the Bush administration and GOP politicians in general, so you are sticking up for them. Try to expand your world to encompass more than the selective bubble of the ten densest/bad-natured/as#@&%e people you could find.

Pure fiction.

Too funny.

So someone hijacked your account to write this?

Sketch wrote earlier today:

I'm not pinning it solely on Obama. But considering his signature issue has been healthcare, lack of knowledge on the Obamacare website and the VA problems indicate he's completely uninvolved.

So, either he's incompetent or indifferent.

I remember watching one of Scott McClellan's press briefings, where he repeatedly threw himself on a grenade, covering for his boss. This wasn't the press being too tough. It was McClellan trying to minimize Bush's messes. I thought "Wow! What a crappy job. Taking abuse and looking like a fool to protect your boss".

Fast forward to the present. Jay Carney receives the same level of McClellanesque abuse on a weekly basis.

It's the new normal.

The particular talking point repeated there is what I said earlier, which is you claim that Obama, Bush, and their administrations are essentially the same kind of B.S. If this is not what you are saying, consider trying to write more clearly, seriously.

Wow!

Really?

Where in my post do I claim say "Obama, Bush, and their administrations are essentially the same kind of B.S"? What part of my post remotely implies that position?

And how do you twist it into a "claim that one man/organization owns America"? Which morphs into their owning me? And my words?

"Put the bong down" doesn't apply here. A more appropriate response would be "Don't post while your tripping!"

Right here:

Again, if you didn't mean to write what that clearly says, you might want to work on your writing skills.

As for how this means you are saying that both parties are owned by the same thing, this comes about since if they pull the same B.S. for the same reasons I would think the most likely, plausible, rational explanation is that they are owned by the same thing. You just stopped short of making that argument, for whatever reason. If you do not mean to say this, by all means type away and make your case more clear. Apparently we both agree that your fingers are your own, and therefore that one thing/person/group does not own everything...

Sketch is a hopelessly misinformed antagonist

You can't debate someone that doesn't know the facts of the debate
and like every other Republican/right winger/libertarian, he is on the opposite side of the what is right and just.

These same people told us cigarette smoking is good for you, arsenic is normal to ingest, Climate change is a hoax, smoking pot will make you kill people, prayer in school will save our civilization, and countless other BS stories

They will always be wrong, because they will believe what ever the special interest group wants them to believe, and these people want you to do their dirty work in spreading the lies.
