Nuke-u-lur option. I would much rather have the Democratic obstruction be a major issue for the 06 elections and get the Republicans at least 60 seats. Then let's hear the Commie-Retro-Libs scream.

Bring in the cots, let them blather on with their ridiculous lies and racist attacks. I just wish the Republicans were a bit quicker on their feet dispelling the lies. NO Frist for President is all I get from this! He's a nice enough guy, but I can't see him being President. Listening to Reid talking, however, Frist appears to be a leadership dynamo by comparison. Couldn't the Democrats do better than this guy?

No, Bush lost the popular vote in 2000

In reply to: you forget

and stole the election in the courts. As discussed in my message below, he only won in 2002 and 2004 because the public fell for his BS wag-the-dog invasion of Iraq, but the tide has turned for him, and more so for the far-right congress (actually, he's equally far right, but disguises it better).

As proof of my pendulum comment, Evie

In reply to: Keep believing that ...

coincidentally, the poll was released during the day, and verifies the bibrations I was getting:
Voters dissatisfied with Bush, Congress; NBC/WSJ poll reveals 'angry electorate'.

>> According to this poll, by 47 percent to 40 percent the public says it would prefer Democrats controlling Congress after the 2006 elections. <<
AIR, that's about the same margin that resulted in the Republican takeover of Congress in 1994.

Two big differences between 1994 and 2006, Dave:

In reply to: As proof of my pendulum comment, Evie

1. State legislatures and Congress have collaborated in an exercise in gerrymandering that dramatically reduces the odds of that kind of drastic shift.

2. Democrats in 2006 have to defend 2/3 of the contested Senate seats. In 2004, it was Republicans who had that task - and they gained 2 seats. Can you honestly look at the present state of the Democrat Party and tell me that you see a similar outcome in 2006, when it'll take a net increase of 5 seats to take control of the Senate?

Take this leftist nonsense to an SDS forum or a MoveOn forum, just stop bleating it over and over in THIS forum!

The ''hey hey ho ho'' days are over and they're never coming back Dave. You're pining for the 60s, but they're gone forever and people think that those who endlessly and repetitively bleat this braindead nonsense look foolish and just plain suck!

several occasions to divert attention from his performance (pun intended). It's Democrat SOP to charge your opponent with what you do.

That dog won't hunt, KP.

Don't y'all understand that your unfounded charges in that regard are a large part of why Clinton did not do more against Al Qaeda? One of thos "wag the dog" attacks was on the Afghan Al Qaeda camps, and y'all pilloried him for it. And complaining about faulty intelligence as the basis of a bombing raid (on some sort of factory, AIR) is a pot calling the kettle black given Bush's either failed or intentionally distorted intelligence supporting his wag-the-dog war!

That's why they're so desparate to get the Courts packed with ultra-conservatives now. Polls show the public siding with Dems over the ultra-conservative GOP on issue after issue. Bush's own approval numbers are now below his disapproval, and for the Republican Congress it's worse, especially after their failed effort to politicize the Schiavo case and DeLay's threat to start impeaching moderate judges that don't toe the extreme conservative line. The only reason the GOP won the last two elections was Bush's wag-the-dog war in Iraq; ironically, though the public disapproves of it, they weren't willing to toss its architect out mid-war. American politics run on a pendulum, and the swing back from the far right is now well established.

You are so funny Dave...

In reply to: The Republican run is over, Duckman.

but you should really see someone to help you resolve your P.E.S.T problem.

Might I suggest Rob Gordon, the Boca-based executive director of the American Health Association, or Boca Raton trauma specialist Douglas Schooler. You could also consider Emotions Anonymous, a recovery group that meets at Glades Presbyterian Church (again in Boca-Raton. I have heard reports that there are some trauma specialists closer to Galveston you might check on.

When he was asked to describe symptoms of the post-election trauma, Schooler said, "They include feelings of extreme anger, despair, hopelessness, powerlessness, a failure to function behaviorally, a sense of disillusionment, of not wanting to vote anymore ? that sort of thing. We?re talking about a deep, unhealthy personal suffering that can best be remedied by intensive short-term therapy." Unfortunately I don't even see one you have not exhibited here and we are concerned.


Don't let it continue untreated because P.E.S.T. appears to have been the overriding factor with Andrew Veal (other similarities are that Veal worked for the University of Georgia (research, no specific mention about writing grant requests), and was adamantly opposed to the war in Iraq--eerie similarities indeed).

"I told his mother there are some people so sensitive and intelligent and passionate they don't belong in the world the way it is today," said Mary Anne Mauney, Veal?s boss. "And if this was something he had to do, it was heroic that he chose the World Trade Center."

Democratic Party is self-destructing at an alarming rate.

By the way, had it not been for the war Bush's '04 victory margin would have been MUCH larger.

No, Ed -- *you* need to check reality.

In reply to: Again, please check reality

The public doesn't appreciate the arrogance of power now being shown by the Republicans any more than they did when they saw it in Nixon, or to a lesser extent in the Democratic Congress of the early 90's: Voters dissatisfied with Bush, Congress.

2006 will be to the Republican Congress what 1994 was to the Dems. BTW, that 47-40 margin is about what it was for the Republicans in polls in 1993.

In reply to: I?m a Conservative and don?t support the

......... might have started sooner had not a slew of Republicans challenged the sitting President Bush in the primaries in the 1992 election. They raked him over the coals on his ''No new Taxes'', among other criticisms. Robertson, Dole et al attacked him like they were Democrats.

Perot no doubt siphoned votes from both. Some say that did Bush in, but, IMO, the challenge from his own party members made him look weak, IMO.

I admired him very much, especially after he realized and accepted that circumstances can change, so all promises cannot be kept.

I think there is a huge difference in members of either party running in the primaries, but not against a sitting president of their own party who, IMO, was doing a good job.
