AGAIN! What is up with Scarborough? Someone is going to take away his evil talking head license if he isn't careful.


How exactly does one convince the teeming masses that Republicans deserve to stay in power despite botching a war, doubling the national debt, keeping company with Jack Abramoff, fumbling the response to Hurricane Katrina, expanding the government at record rates, raising cronyism to an art form, playing poker with Duke Cunningham, isolating America and repeatedly electing Tom DeLay as their House majority leader?

How does a God-fearing Reagan Republican explain all that away?

Easy. Blame George W. Bush....

Even when the administration would not give generals the troops they needed to win the war in Iraq, Republican leaders did nothing. When the president refused to veto a single spending bill while the deficit spiraled upward, Republican leaders looked away. And when chaos was reigning in the streets of New Orleans and across the Gulf Coast in Katrina's horrific aftermath, Republican leaders remained mute.

That silence -- proof that it is better to be feared than loved in politics -- has had devastating results. The United States is more divided than ever, our leaders are despised around the world, our fiscal situation is catastrophic and congressional approval ratings are the lowest ever. Since nothing sharpens the mind like a political hanging, Republican leaders in the Senate and House are finally considering doing what effete newspaper editorialists have suggested for years: throwing Bush overboard.


Who is this man masquerading as Scarborogouh?

Yeah, I still can't post on Daily Kos(just made my account this morning) or I would have gone and hollered when I read that earlier. She wants to make people pay prices for being in a political party because someone else in that party did something wrong. Sometimes the people in question are to blame, sometimes they aren't. Telling Scarborough he can't dump a president he no longer has any faith in has no real basis I can see. Yes he voted for him, does this mean she doesn't want anyone who voted for Bush to switch parties now? Seems kind of dumb to Argue that you can't change your mind. georgia10 again, same one I was disinterested in yesterday.

Meh, that article is ok, I don't have the same kind of problems with it. I don't think it's quite as blunt or making the same point. After all, Scarborough wasn't commenting in that article on whether or not they deserved to get elected again, he was saying what needs to be done to win an election. Which, consequenty would probably work. The Dems are still doing a fantastic job of doing... well... what are they doing again? It's not like the Democrats were standing on their chairs screaming while all this was taking place. A large number of Democrats are responsible for enabling the slim republican majority. Saying the Republicans are the whole problem and all Republicans deserve equal treatment really doesn't strike me as a fair label. I certainly don't treat all the Democrats the same. Nor does Daily Kos. Does georgia10 think Kerry or Doggett are the same as say... gosh, let's pick a random officially elected as a Democrat... Lieberman?
