The Democrats won, so get over it

  • Follow Letters

All I ever hear is how the liberal media mislead or even lie to the public. This was told to me by Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Neal Boortz, Michael Savage, Bill O'Reilly, Newt Gingrich, Dick Cheney, Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter (this paper had to let her go) and the local Austin Rhodes. Name one liberal.

It amazes me that Rush tells his audiences that the Democrats can't think for themselves, while he is in front of his golden microphone telling his gullible listeners exactly what he wants them to think. What a fat hypocrite! It's ironic that his followers are called "dittoheads." I think that definitely rings true.

The election is over. It was a landslide! Electoral votes: Obama, 365; McCain, 173. People young and old came to the voting booths because they were unhappy with the way this country was being run. After eight years of a Republican-led administration, most voters found out that George W. Bush was in way over his head. I still can't believe he was elected, much less twice.

I constantly hear Republicans blaming everyone but themselves. Why is it now that I hear that we are spending all of our grandchildren's money? Do not forget the useless war Bush started. Think how many lives and how much money we could have saved. I feel the war has contributed to our huge recession. It had to. I am still waiting for anyone to tell me what was accomplished in Iraq! So don't start acting like these problems just came about.

Put away all the greed and blaming and let's start by working as one, instead of condemning everyone who doesn't think as you do. That is exactly why there is a Democratic president and a Democratic Congress today. Until both parties and the citizens of this great country start working together, it will remain that way for many years to come.

Jim Reid

I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for "change" Jim. You'll end up being airlifted to MCG, or worse.

Nice bipartisan show of tolerance. "Get over it....we won! Now I'm going to take my ball and go home." Love the childish attitude. I'm sure Jim was quiet for the last 8 years and just "got over it."

Jim, unfortunately it is

Jim, unfortunately it is easier for some people to call those they don't agree with unpatriotic and stupid because they don't listen to the same talk radio clowns that they do...They usually associate patriotism with tough talk and lapel pins... To try and have a intelligent discussion with them is like talking to your dinner table....I just refuse to talk to my dinner table, I'll eat on it and look over it while I talk to others, but talking to the table itself is foolish...

Get over apologizing for the

Get over apologizing for the U.S.A. and bowing to Muslim heads of state? Get over cap and trade and the idiotic stimulus packages? Get over this snake-oil salesman's socialism health care where government makes each and every decision? I don't think so. Begin the purge in 2010, and finish the drill in 2012!

That useless war kept the muslims from attacking us in our country for 8 years. Where would you rather fight them? They will not care if you are democrat or republican - to them you are an American and therefore an infidel. You will be killed. Be that as it may, your empty-headed president will not be in office long. He has never completed anything he has started. He will soon just be a lame-duck president fighting a Republican congress.

Unpublished

Gee Jim, these useless wars you speak of still have American troops involved. As a matter of fact, this president just sent an additional 5000 troops to Afghanistan. As for spending, this president, Barrack Odumba, I mean Obama, doubled the national debt his first 6 months in office. He did this while apologizing to the world for American "arrogance," and bowing to a foreign king. Sorry, I can't share your pride in this empty suit.

LOL, very funny. With a full takeover of congress and the White House, the socialist Dems still can't seem to take any positive actions. I wonder why they can't get any respect? Should we tell Jim Reid or just let him go on thinking the whole country is against him?

"Instead of condemning

"Instead of condemning everyone that does not think as you" is from the Dem left playbook. It seems as if those on the right bring up specific issues, whereas the elitist left personally attacks those that question the Dem party. Frank insults his constituents, another talks on the cell phone while a cancer survivor is speaking, NBC news Andrea Mitchell says the people do not know what is good for themselves. Yesterday Warran Buffet wrote in the NY Times that the Obama Administration needs to be careful with spending or will run the county broke. The Dems have the majority to vote in ANYTHING they wish, but cannot garner support from within their own party. Obama cannot even unite his own party, much less bring bipartisian governing to Washington.

Jim, in your castigation of

Jim, in your castigation of the conservatives who tell us that the government is lying to us don't forget Daniel Hannan, a member of the European parliament who is tirelessly trying to expose the lie of government healthcare supporters. Oh, have you ever done a hard days work, do you have children whom you hope will have more than you do, have you ever faced hostile fire as a soldier of this country, are you satisfied that you have a ruling class who do not live under the same laws you do, do you listen to both sides of a debate, have you ever studied the Constitution of the US, have you ever studier socialism, do you know what Nazi is an abbreviation for, do you know the history of the swastika, do you know the history of the Soviet Union, do you know the five year survival rate for a prostate cancer survivor in the US, Canada and the UK, or are you just a liberal democrat? I am a constitutionalist. Most of US want this nation to be as great as she once was. That will not happen under the present government.

Great read Jim! Something
Unpublished

Great read Jim! Something else is hilarious about the non-minority airwaves: They say the president isn't smart because his speechs are prepared, but "THEY" spend all day reading from other people's writing, and they screen all calls. They want the president to answer any silly question from an ignorant citizen, but they must have someone to pre-determine what a caller will say. Wow! How much dishonesty can possibly exist? The president's race is giving those racists a fit, but check this: How many of those radio blow hards correctly predicted the victory of Election '08? None! So, based on that failure to be correct about the American people's desires, who expect them to know anything about anything? Only fools. Again, a good article demonstrating the intelligence of an informed citizen.

Mr. Reid it sounds like you need to grow your circle of friends and turn off talk radio. By your own admission your party of choice has a mandate from the people! Why all the hand wringing? You won...pass the bill. What's the problem Jim? Can this bill not stand up to the light of day? Where is your "landslide" of public opinion at this very moment?

For all you strict

For all you strict constitutionalists do yo realize women couldn't vote and it allowed slavery. It was a framework hence the term framers. It had shown overtime to be an imperfect document because man wrote it. So if you women want to become second class cititzens again let's go back to the constitution. My point is you guys bring up the constitution as a crutch when you don't like it. We couldn't function as a country if we only use what was in the constitution and you all know that.

Where was Jim when the Republicans were in charge, probably ranting about everything they were doing and calling the media conservative. Good job Jim, for a Dumbacrat. We will all just rollover and pretend we don't see anything wrong, including all your democrat friends against this healthcare debacle. The fact that Justus agrees with you just shows how dumb you really are.

Jim thank you, for the change

Jim thank you, for the change you voted for. The only change is the government eating away at our nations GDP pie. Can you can read a pie chart? The government is not competitive. Therefore you get the service the government wants you to have. Then again maybe you cannot make choices for yourself? Do you need a false sense of security, that our government really cares for your needs? Remember Katrina and the super dome? The idiots piled in with no food or water expecting the government to be there. I wonder how they liked how the government served them?

concernednative, what are

concernednative, what are you concerned about, and what are you a native of? Do you even know what a constitutionalist is? Most of us want equality of the genders, no slavery (unless it is done as God required), and most of all limited government. Read the Ninth and Tenth Amendments. Then help us try to restore the Republic given to us by the Founders.

geistlich, my point is you

geistlich, my point is you wanted changes to the constitution when YOU felt it was neccessary and YOU agree. So don't bring up the constitution when it is conveniant for you. Some amendments are changes you can support but we also do a lot that isn't in the constitution or amendments that no one screams about unless they are against it or in more case their party is against it.

Just cause u fooled the

Just cause u fooled the ignorant masses," from an earlier posting. How true! How many people would go to the doctor and every time the doctor says," I have a cure for you", but never tells you how he proposes to go about this cure? Do you leave the doctor's office and go home all enthusiastic? Or do you think somewhere in the back of your mind, maybe I need another doctor? And the next time you are feeling worse and the doctor says just go home and take some aspirin or pain reliever? Sooner or later the change you can believe in will take effect. The only problem: It will not be the kind of change you wanted.Think about it!
