Any other nominees?
Obama is NOT “just like Bush”. Junior is in a class by himself. Worst.President.Ever.
I remember his first few months. He wanted to build star wars (to enrich his Daddy via the Carlyle Group). He paid NO attention to terrorism, bin Laden, Richard Clark…
The bumbling, incompetent fool nearly wrecked this country, and the world economy. Repeal everything that passed while he was POTUS, starting with the tax giveaway to the wealthy.
How anyone can vote for a Republican, again, after the Bush years is completely beyond me. When someone tells me they’re considering voting for a Republican I lose respect for them, instantly. The GOP has gone completely insane.
IMO, the Democratic party is not perfect. I don’t defend everything Barack Obama does. I don’t defend everything that ANY member of the Democratic party does.
Again, IMO, the only perfect candidate is me. IMO.
But the GOP is perfectly evil.
Do away with SS? Check.
Do away with medicare? Check.
Take our retirement accounts? Check.
Take our pensions? Check.
Declare this to be a “christian” nation, in defiance of the constitution and everything that’s holy? Check.
Deny voting rights? Check.
Gawd, the list goes on. Do I really have to?
Fuck the environment? Check.
A woman’s right to a legal medical procedure? Check.
Tax cuts for people making more than $250K/year matter more than middle class tax cuts? Check.
It just goes on and on. The GOP is in full-on assault mode against “us”.
The Democratic party isn’t perfect. Give me a green party or progressive party who can defeat the GOP candidate (who is ALWAYS well-funded by some rich fucker). I’ll vote for them.
But I’ll ALWAYS vote to defeat the GOP.
And I ALWAYS vote.
Not any more.
I blame Nixon’s “southern strategy” (is there anything dumber than a southern redneck? Maybe a tree stump. A southern redneck’s last words; “Hey, ya’all, watch THIS!”), Reagan’s union busting, Alzheimer’s having ass, and the fucktards who want his wrinkly, stupid face carved on Mt. Rushmore. More recently, I blame the teabaggers. And Frank Luntz. Fuck Frank Luntz and his marketing FOR the wealthy to convince the poor to vote for people who are ACTIVELY working to make life in America more miserable for 98% of us.
Nowadays, “American exceptionalism” seems to revolve around hating Mexicans, Muslims, the poor, and the sick. More often than not, “in the name of Jesus!”
It’s not a pretty sight.
The fall of Rome ain’t got nothing on what we’re doing to ourselves.
I’d be hard-pressed to think of anything dumber than “austerity” and “we need to cut spending”, right now.
Timidity at a time when we need to do great things. What a waste.
Gawd, what I’d give to make stupidity illegal.
One more time, teabaggers are stupid hicks who have no idea what “democracy” or “constitution” or even “America” means. Teabaggers are stupid fuckers who deserve no respect. Spit on them. Throw bricks at them. Piss on them.
We’ve just come through “the Great Recession”, the longest, deepest economic downturn since the Great Depression. Two groups hit especially hard; recent college grads and people in their 50s. Those lovely corporations, rumored by Reaganites and retards to be breathlessly awaiting more favorable regulations before they’ll unleash the TRILLIONS of dollars they’re currently sheltering overseas, brutally (and most likely illegally) purged workers in their 50s from the ranks of the employed to, among other things, keep the cost of their group health insurance plans lower. Many of these not-quite-senior citizens will never work again, or if they do the salaries they’ll make will be a small fraction of what they made before. Oh, and just to add an additional measure of cruelty, after paying their health insurance bills every month while they were young and healthy, they no longer have access to that employer-based health insurance plane.
So now, when a “loophole” is found that gives these people, “millions of middle class people” access to medicaid, it’s seen as a “problem” that needs to be “fixed” ASAP?
We’ve become a brutal country with a hateful bigotry towards average middle-class people in their 50s. “Changes to medicare won’t affect anyone under 54″ my ass. I’m 54. I’ve paid into medicare my entire life. Now you want to break the contract with me and you expect to pay nothing for doing it? AND, if a “loophole” is found that gives me access to medicaid if I need it, you “need” to close it, ASAP? Fuck that!

The Koch brothers have made a science of fabricating ‘grassroots’ organizations and advertising campaigns to support them inan attempt to sway voters based on their falsehoods. Americans for Prosperity, Club for Growth and Citizens United are just a few of these organizations. In a world where corporate money has become the lifeblood of political influence, the labor unions are one of the few ways citizens have to fight against corporate greed. Anonymous cannot ignore the plight of the citizen-workers of Wisconsin, or the opportunity to fight for the people in America’s broken political system. For these reasons, we feel that the Koch brothers threaten the United States democratic system and, by extension, all freedom-loving individuals everywhere. As such, we have no choice but to spread the word of the Koch brothers’ political manipulation, their single-minded intent and the insidious truth of their actions in Wisconsin, for all to witness.
This is the fight, folks. It’s us against the wealthy. Don’t let anyone tell you anything different, and don’t be ashamed to admitting you’re fighting back.

Maybe the rest of the world thinks it was Bush (and Cheney, and Rumsfeld, and…) who was the torture, not “the American people”. I’d beg to differ. By doing nothing, we’re all guilty, but…
GENEVA (Reuters) – Former President George W. Bush has canceled a visit to Switzerland, where he was to address a Jewish charity gala, due to the risk of legal action against him for alleged torture, rights groups said on Saturday.
I understand the court ruling. These assholes “acted on the advice of their lawyers” so they’re untouchable (under US law). I’m still ashamed that we haven’t gone the torches and pitchforks route, but it’s not like I can do it myself. So, I’m looking at the long game. Maybe, if enough of these international cases come up, some legislator will find the courage (maybe in 50 years) to enter a statute into the federal record that will stop this shit.
“Progress, not perfection” is sometimes as frustrating for me as it is for any of you.
