Schizophrenic

Ain't it the truth a few years ago they couldn't say enough good things while Bush and Cheney really were trashing the US Constitution, and spending money like there was no tomorrow in a supposedly good economy and fighting two disasterous wars because the right wingers and neo-cons couldn't read simple intelligence in 2001 even when told who and what he wanted a full month before he did.

However now that a non white guy, non extreme right winger has won twice they cannot find a good thing at all.

Im pretty sure we were for the 2nd amendment whe n GWB was president.

And we were also for fiscal responsibility, even if Bush wasn't.

Did you vote for Bush in 2004?

T. Paine said...

I did vote for Bush in 2004 because I agreed with him more policy-wise than I did with John Kerry. Had there been a viable primary challenger to Bush, I would have likely voted for that other person.

That said, there were lots of issues with Bush that I did not like nor support. I wrote many a letter to the White House accordingly. I am quite certain it was my letters that made him swing even further to the left, just to spite me. :)

If the standard you set is that you have to agree 100% with a candidate, let me ask you - do you agree 100% with President Obama?

Snave said...

Did Jim say he agreed 100% with Obama? Not to speak for him, but I doubt he does and nowhere in this thread did he state he does. I know I don't... It looks to me like you are maybe trying to hijack the thread by taking it in a different direction?

clif said...

They just do not like the double standard of the extreme right wing exposed like Jim did a very good job of exposing it here.

jim marquis said...

Thanks for the backup, Snave. I don't agree 100% with everything Obama thinks or does.

I'm just amused how much distance most Republicans have put between themselves and that weed whacking moron from Texas. Considering how concerned they are now about deficits, there was precious little talk from back in those days about raising taxes to offset the cost of the wars or Medicare part D.

Well if Jim doest have to agree with 100% of what Obama is for, why does Paine have to agree with 100% of what George Bush was for when he voted for him? That seems to me to be what you and Jim were saying with this post.

And you should know better from your time on Blonde Sagacity at the very least Republicans were outraged by Bush's spending. Hell I myself left the party completely and would have never gone back were it not for Democrat attacks on the 2nd Amendment.

jim marquis said...

You and the folks on Blonde Sagacity aside, the fact is no serious Republican politician even made noise about running against Dubya in 2004. The vast majority of GOP voters just went to the polls and gave him an okay to keep on doing what he'd been doing the previous four years.

Free, buddy, when are you going to learn I have no use for anecdotal evidence?

free0352 said...

You could say the exact same for Obama.

And as for Republican voters, just look how many stayed home.

The hypocrisy, it burns;

... by how much they are protesting the facts.
