Just A Quick Note On Last Night

September 5th, 2008 | by Windspike |

Just quickly, on last night’s speechifying by McSame - One has to wonder when the message of the GOP is about change when it has been in charge for the last 8 years is really authentic. Truly

It’s like staging a revolution against yourself — saying that the Republicans have got to go so the Republicans can move in and clean up the mess.

I find no means by which McSame/Palin will fix what they and their party led us into these past years. When they suggest:

I fight to restore the pride and principles of our party. We were elected to change Washington, and we let Washington change us. We lost the trust of the American people when some Republicans gave in to the temptations of corruption. We lost their trust when rather than reform government, both parties made it bigger. We lost their trust when instead of freeing ourselves from a dangerous dependence on foreign oil, both parties and Senator Obama passed another corporate welfare bill for oil companies. We lost their trust, when we valued our power over our principles.

The only message I carried away from the GOP convention was that it will be impossible for McSame and Palin to change in such as a way as to change what their party created. Indeed, Einstein may be right here - we cannot solve the problems we have using the same thinking we used to create them. The true measure of the McSame/Palin ticket will be to prove to us that they will be different than the last four years. So far, they have only given us more of the same, not the change they promise.

    You should save some time and just starting your post as:

    “I don’t like any one Republican that intends to run for President”

    And then close with…

    “I am voting for Obama”

    That way you can save time from posting all that stuff in the middle that no one reads.

    Just asking though, how is McCain responsible for EVERYTHING that is wrong in Washington. The Senate and Congress are controlled by Democrats… At least that is what it looks like on paper. You had a chance to change since 2006 and you haven’t done anything…

    Because the republican control the presidency and no senate majority. Republicans have 49 seats, democrats have 49 seats, and 2 independents who normally caucus with the democrats. Since the republicans are only interested in destroying the government nothing gets accomplished. Now when the republicans controlled both houses and the white house they managed to accomplish some great things. Like letting 9-11 happen. Getting us into a war that was unnecessary. Sinking us in to greater debt ( To complete Reagan’s race to the poor house).Not taking care of the wounded troops. Destroying the constitution and basically making the government non functional.

    Then of course there is the job creation -.9% and by the time this administration leaves I’m sure it will be in the neighborhood of -1.5%

    Not sure how the Constitution has been destroyed Chris, we have had the same amount of Amendments since Bush took office.

    Here’s the problem with your job creation thing though. The market is cyclical. Jobs will be created when there is demand and lost when demand shrinks. Soooooooo…. What does this have to do with the President or who the President is? The President didn’t get me my job and he cannot take it away from me either so…

    since TafT the worst democratic president’s job creation is 2.2%. The best republican job creation is Reagan at 2.1%. Bush I was -.4% and bush II is greater than -.9%.So why is if the market is cyclical it only fails under republicans.

    As for the constitution - wiretapping, suspension of habeas corpus, show trials, extraordinary rendition, and the constant bleat of executive privilege.

    I thought one of the most “say what?” parts was when McBush announced that he wants to help the battered American middle class by… maintaining the Bush tax cuts for millionaires, and giving even more tax breaks to corporations! Huh?

    how is McCain responsible

    90% of the time he’s voted with Bush. He was there.

    The Constitution has been completely sullied over the course of the W, Rove and Co administration. Just pick any one of the signing statements W authored on any number of the bills he’s signed, and ask yourself for whom does the law apply? Secondly, McSame is a huge fan of the Patriot Act, which has by is own very nature, violated the constitution. Just ask any one who has been working with Homeland Security to secure necessary records of communications.
