Congratulations to all of the Democrats on this forum on their victories in the elections. You fought hard and long, and you won..and yes it was a long time coming. You have every right to feel good and rejoice in your victory.

Agreed! Now let's see what they do with the prize.
If things go well, great! If they don't, who will they blame? They need to be very careful in the next two years. If they handle it right, they might have a chance at the White House in '08. If they don't, there could be a huge backlash in two years. Either way, it should be interesting!

Pooltchr and Fats Thank You. I hope we can govern with the same Grace of our opposition.

Now I realize the enormous task facing New york City when they cleaned up after 911. The Democrats are faced with a task equal to theirs. Hopefully we will prevail in the two seats in the Senate or will will be like a one armed paper hanger.####

I will add my congratulations as well. I will have my wife measured for a burka and start learning Arabic as soon as possible. I understand we will be roasting embros over a pile of American flags as a celebration in Nancy's new office digs late this afternoon and that Barney Frank will take charge of the Page Program while In God We Trust gets chiseled off every coin in Washington.

As well, I did hear Stephen Colbert say last night that the "Democrats have been in charge of Congress for almost an hour and they still have us mired deep in a useless war in Iraq!" /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

Best of Luck.....

wow what an arse whipping, i did not think they would get so many seats.

well lets see if they can get anything done, since they only control the house, maybe after 2008 if they get a Demo in the WH.
But for now all they can really do is keep bush from running up the bills and probably not extend any tax cuts. ah good for bush he can finally use his pen to veto anything coming out of congress.

LMAO...too funny Dick! Hey, it takes a while to drain a swamp, lol, but if the Dems will just halt the spending spree, get our troops out of this quagmire, and work for some kind of fairness by tweaking what they can of Bush's tax policies which benefit the rich, I'll be thrilled. I'd like to see some advancment in removing the legal barriers Bush put into place on embryotic stem cell research, and above all else, hope for some strict oversight, after over five years of no oversight at all, we are in great need of it, that's for sure!

A good day to celebrate! Marker day for women, when a woman makes history by breaking through yet another glass ceiling, and my high school chum, is up for majority leader. Will be celebrating with local Democrats at Happy Hour today, and it will definately be a happy hour! Now, my girlfriend, who is a bartender at a famous Capital Hill Watering Hole, as it is often refered to in the Post, will also be happy, as she has told me straight through, that since Washington has been crawling with Republicans, the waiters and bartenders don't get any good tips!

Fats, they swept out some of the trash, but the palace ain't clean, just yet. The next step is to find an Elba Island for GWB to exile to. And then as more truths come out....the die-hard supporters will finally know their a$$ from their Elba

LOL, I have dinner with Democrats on a regular basis ...my wife, my sister, my mom, my mother in law, the whole famn damily.

All this election means is that we get to see Janus's other face.. same sh*t different face(s). The rape of America will continue but it's just the rapists that change. Nothing will ever really get done until a third party (preferably Libertarians) get a shot at fixing things.

As for me, well I voted according to my principles and I'm proud to have casted my vote for the Libertarian Party candidate. My hands are clean, and so is my conscience.

I hope that things can and do change for the better but I just don't have faith in either of the two parties. Having said that, and not being devoid of a modicum of class, I again offer congrats to the Democrats on this forum.

Congratulations indeed....the pendulum has swung and the Republicans got what they deserved. I'll even throw in the Senate. Even though the races are very close the Dems won. Sometimes close races just happen.....see no accusations of voter fraud or Diebold machines or hanging chads or software from Venezuela yada yada yada...the Dems won and now it's time to see what their plans are exept vote for us we're not Bush.....but for the sake of the country I hope they are successful....it's going to be interesting. Minimum wage anyone?

I'm all for the mininum wage for everyone of GWB's Cabala,er Cabinet.
Sure the Dems won...but look at what they inherited.
As the saying goes, you can't unscramble, scrambled eggs.
There's a nice little example of the magnitude of the backlash against the Republican party under GWB.

Congrats to the Democrats. So, here is my prediction...We will see nothing different as far as expansion of Government and spending. I am willing to bet Boortz is correct, now that the Dems have some control, we can look for them to do everything they can to keep it. This can be summed up with one word, handouts.

I don't think much will change with respect to Iraq and the war on terror, so I am really hoping these Dems can figure out a way to curb the spending spree that has been going on. History tells us that will not happen, but lets hope for the best.

Oh yeah, Boortz pointed out that Iraq was not the number one reason for voting, it was all the scandals. I guess you can say the Reps earned that one.

You have, in a one night sweep, turned things from a 100% controlled government by the Republicans to well over 70% control over that same government. Now do what you promised to do, start rescuing us from the evil American government. I will support any plans that make any sort of common sense. I think most Americans will. Just don't whine that one tiny guy in the White House will outmanuver all the new Democrats. Get er done!

If he was Japanese, he might do the honorable thing...Sepuka....but barring a forced resignation, we'll have to undure another 2 years. He had plans to reintroduce his Social Security overhaul, tieing it to the Indian Casinos...or was that Wall St?...about the same odds in either....the plans may be on the back burner now, as he scurries around looking for something positive he can actually accomplish....for his Presidential legacy.
But you may be right, it might just be another group of "carpet baggers" that we just elected to replace the Scalawags that got booted out.
This is why I am forming a new party to oppose the Right (Gop) Left (Dems) and the centrists (Libertarians)
My party, the Contrarians,will be on the cutting edge and against everything proposed by the other groups

wolfdancer
11-08-2006, 05:10 PM
I also read that "small" issues like his sanctimonious veto of embryo research, may have played a part. Hope he doesn't see the news about researchers "restoring" eye sight to mice using
stem cells...a second veto???
Problem with the scandals was that Ted Haggard claimed he had weekly conversations with GWB....Foley might just have been a write-off, but the head of a large Evangelical group, with Presidential ties? that had to cost some votes.
But for anyone to say that the War was not the major issue that decided the elections.....wrong!! Not only could the war have been avoided....there is no plan for winning it.
I'm hoping your predictions are a little too gloomy, and that Borat was wrong.er Boortz

Well Mr.Fat Boy Sir, I voted for my wallet,my principles being too transient, for fidelity to any one political party. Class is something to be pursued,but gloating at the thought of all those voters turning on their masters,does I suppose reflect my feelings. To the Republicans on this forum,I can only say,the people have spoken. I'm a Libertarian,and optimistic about humanity. The proof is on the test. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

While I don't know you personally, your post leads me to believe you are naive enough to think you can speak for the rest of the voting public. They spoke, in spite of what you believe, and pointed to the scandals as the most important issue.

Ed....f*** you and your insults. Maybe someday you'll get the chance to repeat your crap to my face???? I know you are so brave...calling folks that have loved ones serving, or may have lost loved one to this war....calling them cowards for opposing the war....takes a real macho man to do that.Ever wear a uniform yourself Ed, besides Halloween, when you might have dressed heroically in a flight jacket like your idol GWB?
So the war was a non issue....and it was Foley and Haggard that decided the election....you're dumber than I thought you were.....
Ed, I'm more of a Christian than you'll ever be....and I served my country when it looked like we were going to war...we were on radio silence...in the "war zone" and prepared to fight.
It didn't happen, so I have the same combat experience as you...but I know which one of us would have moved to Canada in an actual war.
Maybe you spent too much time at Camp Jesus as a youth...worshiping alongside a picture of Richard Nixon, I'd guess.

As my PM mentions, you need to chill out. You are acting irrational and it is not healthy. My goodness, when did I ever call someone a coward? [ QUOTE ]
So the war was a non issue <hr /></blockquote> Ahhh, I see why you are so irrational. You cannot read. While I will not turn to obscenities to point this out, why don't you wake up, open your eyes and read. All I said was that Iraq was not the NUMBER 1 REASON and you were wrong for acting as a sounding board for those surveyed. Iraq is a big reason people voted and chose Democrat, however, IT WAS NOT THE NUMBER 1 REASON. You told me I was wrong, however it is you who were wrong.

[ QUOTE ]
Ed, I'm more of a Christian than you'll ever be <hr /></blockquote> You see, the beauty of Christianity is that it is not a contest. We are all running against ourselves. I just try everyday to get out of my own way. I am proud to see a fellow Christian on the boards.

[ QUOTE ]
and I served my country when it looked like we were going to war...we were on radio silence...in the "war zone" and prepared to fight. <hr /></blockquote> Thanks. What more do you want me to say? This does not change my opinion of anything. I have family members who have served and have lost family members who served. From my discussions with them over the years I don't seem to be too far off base with them.

[ QUOTE ]
It didn't happen, so I have the same combat experience as you...but I know which one of us would have moved to Canada in an actual war. <hr /></blockquote> Well pat yourself on the back. Your almost combat experience gives you the right to decide my future. I did not know this.

[ QUOTE ]
Maybe you spent too much time at Camp Jesus as a youth <hr /></blockquote> I don't take this personally, but in the PM you wrote me what was that part where you hypocritically acted like a child yelling at me for personal insults?

Come on, act like an adult. I don't agree with your slanted views so live with it. There are many others that also do not agree with you. I am sorry that my delivery tends to inflame you but I am sure there is a cream for that.

Jack,
Certainly you are right. Eventho the first thing from the voters mouths after voting was about disgust with corruption, that word covers many things, including Iraq, and the prosecution of the war. Corruption, incompetence, and deciet, will be the final analysis of this administration. I hope, given the risk our troops are dealing with, and their sacrifices, that we won't have to add total failure to the previous adjectives.

I continue to try and be fair and civil...I haven't been calling anyone any names. I have read much that you have posted here, and don't recall ever reading anything you posted that admitted you were wrong.
