AlterNet: Election 2004: The Day After

I think anyone, including baby bush, who suggests that he will make this country better needs to look at the world around him and to look at his actions rather than listen to him. A fellow just died and went to heaven where he was interviewed by St. Pete. On the wall behind the good saint was a wall full of myriads of clocks. The man asked them what the clocks were for. St. Pete said they mirrored the lies that people told. When the man asked for George Washington's clock, St. Pete pointed at a clock where the hands were set straight up, no lies. He asked for Abe Lincoln's clock and saw the hands were set at five minutes past 12, a few tall tales. "Where's the clock for baby bush?" he asked. Said St. Pete, "Jesus keeps that in his office. He uses it for a ceiling fan." So must we all.

Chuck - the election is over.

George W. Bush is the 1st President to get over 50% of the vote since 1988.

The first President to gain seats in Congress in a re-election since the depression.

It's about time for you to face the facts that Americans like the words 'Under-God' in the Pledge of Allegiance, and that our top priorities are not gay rights, gun control, or affirmative action. Most of us don't think the government should control our lives, but that we should be responsible.

If the Democrats don't kick out the extremists, and go back to being the party of Roosevelt, they'll never be a national party again.

I for one, would love to see them nominate a Hillary Clinton in 2008, as I don't see a single 'Red' state that she'd have a hope of winning!

Eric: Thankfully you do not have a voice in the Democratic party. Stick to your own party. The Democrats have been moving to the right for 35 years. Richard Nixon was a bleeding heart liberal both economically and environmentally compared with almost every Democrat in office today. This election the party raised record amounts of money thanks entirely to the likes of Michael Moore and MoveOn.org. We're gonna move further to the left and drag moderate Republicans with us, like it or not. Your party of short-sighted extremism is going too far, and you'll get yours, too.

I'm sorry Chuck, you're right. The Democrats are on exactly the right course.

And now that they've got nothing left to lose, they can only go up, right?

(Oh, by the way, it was Nancy Pelosi the other morning that said they had nothing left to lose!)

Eric: go away. I don't like stupidity repeating itself on this site. If you get the city council post you've applied for, and I doubt if you will, this city will be in a worse state than it already is. Don't bother to answer. Just go away.

Maybe Mr. Rightmire should only debate people who agree with him, then he wouldn't lose.

I don't know Eric, but I say it's game/set & match for him.

Mark: I don't mind debating people I don't agree with until it become obvious that they are not seeking anything but just laying out their own ideas. I've had my mind changed by good ideas but I've never seen any from people like Eric.
