The Democrats are STILL Punks!

The Democrats are PUNKS! I keep saying it over and over, but they still won't man up.

They were elected in 2006 with a mandate from the American people: Stop the Iraqi occupation and bring our soldiers home. With Bush's veto of the Iraq spending bill, their failure to override that veto, and then their immediate concession to Dubya's demands that withdrawl timetables be removed from the bill, they have punked out once again.

That cowboy is riding this Democratic Congress as if it was jackass that is its symbol. I keep waiting for Ashton Kutcher to pop up on C-SPAN in the middle of a Senate debate.

I completely agree with Michael Rivero at
And I told you that this was EXACTLY what was going to happen. The Democrats would make a big noise about withdrawel, Bush would veto, and the Democrats would cave so that Bush has his endless war and the Democrats are able to go into the 2008 elections saying, "Well, we tried to stop the war."

Well, trying is not good enough. We The People worked hard to put the Democrats into Congress in 2006 and the Democrats have officially blown their chance. They do not get another one as far as I am concerned.

I don;t care what Congress wants to do or tries to do, only what they actually do matters and in terms of the mandate they were sent to power with in 2006, they have failed utterly and completely. They will not stop the war. They have ignored Kucinich's bill of impeachment against Dick Cheney.

Anyone have a good blueprint for a decent guillotine?

Trying to stop the war simply isn't good enough. Yoda told us, "There is no try. Only do or do not."

The Congress is supposed to have equal power with the president. Why are they allowing the carnage and the Bush administration's crimes to continue?

Because they are PUNKS!

Nadir: Do the dems have enough votes to override Bush's veto? Will you vote demo in the upcoming natl election?

I am voting Libertarian, after voting for Bush in both of his elections.

I supported his invasion, though I disagree with him that it was the only option. Instead I view that as one reasonable option, though one that he implemented poorly. I believe that not invading Iraq was another reasonable option, though as with invading Iraq, a successful non-invasion option would have required its own set of conditions to succeed in securing civilization against the islamic tyrants.

Bush and the repos have let me down in just about every area other than getting one tax cut. After that one tax cut, they failed to push for a single flat tax, and they abandoned talk of enabling citizens to move their SS tax dollars into private investment accounts.

They also failed to curb government spending

I'm going to now give my vote to the libertarians, who oppose invading Iraq, and also oppose having any US military bases in non-US territories or any military alliances with other nations. The Lib's also support free expression (even for people who burn the US flag), freedom for women to kill their fetuses, freedom of people to sell and consume any substances that they like including drugs, and the complete exclusion of religion from govt.

I support all of these positions, plus the Lib calls for a single, low flat tax rate and eliminating most govt programs, including farm subsidies and the World Bank, and school vouchers for all K-12 students.

The Repos will have to move in this direction if they have any hope of ever regaining my vote.

The width and height of the post hasn't changed. Perhaps you notice it more because the background isn't all black.

Thanks for your input. I'll forward it to my web nerds at Landmine-Design.

The Dems failed to override Bush's veto.

I don't know who I'm voting for yet. It's too early to make that decision. I would love for a strong candidate to emerge from outside the major parties, but I haven't seen one yet.

Nadir: Do the dems have enough votes to override the veto, if all those who say they oppose the war voted to override it?
