I think the powers that be in the democratic party are using a brilliant game plan to blow the GOP out of the water in the coming election. It is an old tactic called 'keep your powder dry'. While McSleepy waits for an opponent the Dems get to air their dirty laundry early and at their own timing. While the GOP goes to sleep waiting for the Dems candidate to be determined, perhaps as late as the convention, the Dems hold the spotlight and at the same time hold off the slim machine(the swiftboater type 527's) at bay. Brilliant I say, simply brilliant....

It's working great! It will be hard to say the Republicans are using unfair tactics when all the bloody subjects have been brought up by HRC.

Keep up the good work.

Pelosi is also doing a great job in recent days, standing firm against Bush, on the pre-pardon tactics he's using to protect the telecommunication industry for breaking the law for him. Pelosi is also expected to stand firm on making Iraqis pay for their own war, and only providing enough money to get our guys and gals out of there. Given Al Sadr's threats of the past few days, I fear that my worst nightmare is nearing, and that we will see the very critical and debilitating up-surge in violence which had been predicted all along, both pre-surge, and throughout, by our American, Arab speaking experts, and retired general, making it almost impossible to get them out safely.

Arabs now see the United States in a light which will take decades to improve. And, as Bush cowers to the North Koreans, in his desperation to achieve some sort of passing appearance of competence, before returning to his play ranch, to count up his oil coffers, he's making concessions to the North Koreans that even John Bolton is attacking.

One can only hope that future presidents will recognize that a dedicated physical fitness addict, sports loving, Secretary of State, is not the gold standard for achieving international reconciliations in problem regions, with the potential for future threats, even though she can play Bach!

Meanwhile, Democrats are enjoying unprecedented campaign contributions, doubling the Republican contributions, as more and more unsettling articles document McCain's mental issues, and spotlight his connections to the many Lobbyists who are running his campaign.

Pelosi is going to tear Bush a new one this time, and I can't wait to watch him try to al Qaeda his way out of this one, given our present gas pump prices, a deepening recession, and a critically crumbling infrastructure, broken Army, and the harrowing state of our poor troops.

I hope you are wrong, my friend but will say we do need a change in Washington. I hope that, if it is McCain, Clinton or Obama we will do better than we have recently. If the next president still protects America and slows wasteful spending, he/she will have my support as I have said. I do think McCain should not be ruled out as a change agent with the exception of the war and I think he will fight it much better.

I pray we make this country better without tearing it apart.

I didn't say Pelosi had NO POWER. I said that she did not have the votes to impeach Bush and Cheney, because Republicans vote in a block, and they have blocked every effort to put pressure on the Iraqi Government, to fight for their own country, instead of jerking off America, both financially, and in blood and causualties.

Pelosi is working to get more Republicans to do the right thing. That's a tall order, but she does have control over what comes before the House.

You would have less opportunity to fog up my statements, if you stayed abreast of what is happening in your Government, and knew more about how it works. Why not spend a few days clicking on the links on C-Span? And while you're at it, check out how McCain flopped on protecting our troops from being tortured when they're captured, and check out how he is against giving our troops the same kind of G.I.Bill that we gave to WWII Vets. Check out how he is falling right in line with Bush's failed illegal occupation in Iraq, and check out the huge role that this war plays in our economic problems, right now. Check out the statements during the testimony of the major oil companies in our country, and how they have been grabbing all these subsidies from Bush, and Cheney, and doing absolutely NOTHING that would bring down these prices, or find other sources for energy, or refine more oil.

As I said long ago, Cheney fought to keep those energy meetings secret because he promised those oil men to drive up oil prices to %6.00 a gallon before the end of the Bush nightmare, and that goal is far easier to achieve when the Middle East is in unstable.

Now they're building another false case for hitting IRan, although their statements about Iran were made on evidence which is supposition at best.

Bush has axed another military leader, Admiral Fallon, and repleacing him with his newest puppet, General Betrayus.

Already we're hearing Americans accepting of the idea of revving it up with Iran, speaking and writing as though it is inevitablem when all we have is circumstantial evidence that they are involved in sending any bombs into Iraq, and no evidence at all of their uranium enrichment.

As I see it, the only way we can escape more Bushomania, and more devastating results from this Republican led insanity, is to do exactly what Pelosi is now doing, she's taking charge of what goes before Congress, and apply pressure against failed Bush policy, and against Iraq, to make some progress, and IMO, without the Democrats exposing the many failure in Iraq, we would have seen any improvment, slight though it may be, at all in Iraq. Bush had been telling them for four and a half years, that we would stay no matter what they did or didn't do. Easy for him, he isn't over there, nor any of his children.

John McCain is a disgrace for failing to step up to the plate on behalf of our young and brave who have given to much.

Gayle in Md. </div></div>

"Iran announced Tuesday that it had resumed uranium enrichment efforts in defiance of international pressure to curb its nuclear program and said it will no longer comply with voluntary measures designed to enhance international inspectors' access to its nuclear facilities." --Washington Post Feb 15, 2006

This was 2 years ago when it was reported by the IAEA that Iran was using five centrifuges.

2 years after that: "President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said during a visit to Iran's main enrichment complex at Natanz that it had started installing 6,000 centrifuges at the facility, in addition to the 3,000 centrifuges already operating there."

Now of course it is entirely possible they are actually just trying to build a nuclear power program up in the face of oil shortages, as they say. Or it could be a whole lot of hub-bub and political deception and posturing. I don't know, and doubt anybody does. But one cannot say there is NO evidence or uranium enrichment.

Note: that doesn't take away from much of the rest of your statement. And you made me laugh with the "general" part /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

<span style="color: #CC0000">Well, no you didn't. I had replyed to a post from Q who had said the Neocon cabal had planned to stay in Iraq forever and I had replied " If this indeed was the "plan" by the Neo-Con cabal (which has been political suicide exept for the self destruction of Hillary and Obama), why are we still there when the anti Neo-Con cabal controls both the House and the Senate? to which you replied:
Becausae you can't completely control either side without a 60% majority, and the Republicans vote in a block on everything involving spying on Americans, and funding this militarily un-winnable civil war. How many times does it take, before you get it? Two thirds of both houses are required.
to which I replied:
You mean that the 2006 elections weren't a mandate from the people about the evil Republicans? They didn't give the Dems 66.6% majority so what was the big deal. Why was everyone on the left so excited? If two thirds is the big watermark then it seems that hundreds of bills that passed both houses correcting all these injustices would have been vetoed. I think Bush averages about one per year......and Democrats never vote in a block????? right.... who doesn't get it
To which I got no answer......so again the only thing the 2/3 vote does is over ride a veto. They can pass a bill by one vote so why aren't they doing anything to correct all these "injustices" ?

GW has just given a 100 billion handout to millions of people, is that wasteful spending?
When you consider how much the Govt has already spent bailing out banks, the 100 B is a pittance.
The Govt has overspent and borrowed and the end result is a massive transfer of Fed Dollars to Bush's minions. More ann more money/power has been transferred to less and less people.

Tax cuts for the rich and no-bid contracts handed out to 19 yr old kids etc, etc , etc. The waste has been enormous under GW and the next Dem Pres will have to make a lot of cut-backs.

Just think how much you would have saved if the US media had done its job and questioned the need for the Iraqi war?

<span style="color: #FF0000">A handout would be giving the money to people who did nothing to earn it....this is money I worked for and besides, it sure seems like GWB isn't the only one wanting to take credit for it... </span>

"With 7.7 million Americans to begin receiving tax rebate checks next week due to a bipartisan economic stimulus plan passed earlier this year, <span style="color: #CC0000"> House Speaker Nancy Pelosi</span> is calling for a similar bipartisan effort to craft a <span style="color: #FF0000">second </span> stimulus package.

By the end of the summer, 130 million American families will receive so-called "recovery rebates," the California Democrat says.

President Bush and Congress agreed on the first economic stimulus package in an effort to head off a US recession. Democrats say economic circumstances have worsened and called for another stimulus. Republicans are reluctant to move a second stimulus until the first has had a chance to work.

"American families need these rebates for the rising cost of gas and groceries, and this will help get the economy moving. These checks will not come a moment too soon for families struggling with the economic downturn -- that they are a good, strong step," Pelosi says. "The strain of the economic downturn on middle- and low-income families demands, in my view, a consideration of a second stimulus package and we
have begun some conversations with the Administration and the Republicans on that."

Pelosi struck a seemingly conciliatory tone in seeking Republican cooperation on a second stimulus measure -- a different approach than the hardline she took earlier this month when she stalled a trade agreement with Columbia. That trade deal had been a top priority for President Bush and his Republican allies. Pelosi said she would allow a vote on that trade deal only after Republicans cooperated on passing a second stimulus.

"Just as we did with the Recovery Rebates, Congress must work in a bipartisan way to find solutions for the immediate crisis and for a long-term economic recovery for America," Pelosi says. "Specifically, we are working on efforts to pass additional sweeping legislation to keep millions of families in their homes, provide relief to millions of out-of-work Americans, and reduce the strain on families who are struggling with rising gas and grocery prices."

Sure, its always great to get back some of the money you have paid in taxes but these payouts are meant to compensate for the high gas, food prices and to [ again ] stimulate the economy. The people who work for low wages and need this money most will probably get nothing or next to nothing.

What GW has done is try to artificially stimulate the economy with money he doesn't have. Every time he does so, the value of the dollar goes down. The situation will just get progressively worse- its happened in Europe.
His tax cuts for the very rich were supposed to stimulate the economy but all that has happened is a huge transfer of wealth. [Its happeneing all over the world.] The Nat Debt is 9 trillion- imagine the interest on that alone!

You don't get it. Republican blocked every investigation throughout their majority. contractors in Iraq have stolen us blind, and they couldn't have done it without Republicans blocking the investigations.

Bush veto cannot be overturned without two thirds majority.

The majority are Democrats, but it is a razor thin majority. They are still able to decide what is investigated, and what goes before the house, and when, but they can't overturn Bush, however, atleast we have been able to disclose much of the corruption in Iraq, and here, thanks to the Democratic majority, razor thin though it may be. And there will be more pressure on the Iraqis to perform, and make progress, now that Republicans are not in the majority.

Today, for example, there were whistle blowers from Halliburton's subsidiary, giving testimony about how they sold bad water to our troops, and how corrupt they are, and how much waste and corruption in going on over there. The Republican had blocked all those investigations. Atleast, now that they can't do that any more, our soldiers are beginning to get what they need to protect themselves, and Democrats are still trying to break into the Republican blockade against providing them with decent health care, education, and housing support when they come home. Atleast we are beginning to be able to protect our men and women from the Bush attack, on our troops, his policy which is against Army requirements. Four and five deployments, some now are even on their sixth, and without decent amounts of time at home, that is what he's done to them, and worse.

Too bad you don't keep up with what your government is doing. Ever heard of Republicans walking out? Ever heard of filIbuster?
And while we're at it, ever heard of a President who signs bills, and then adds statements claiming that he isn't going to abide by them? Ever heard of a party that uses the Department of Justice for their own political advantage? Ever heard of the Supreme Court deciding who the president will be, and taking the decision away from the state which had the election problem, in spite of thousand of voters claiming disenfranchment, being kept out of the polls, being "Purged" off the voting lists?

Every respected Law professor has stated that the 2000 election was not legal. Ohio, in 04, was thrown by a guy who has since written a book about how he did it, after he got out of jail, for doing it, of course.

The last time I heard about it so prominently in the news was in 2003 when the Dems were filibustering all the judicial nominees left and right.

This debate, however, was not about trial judges or federal district court nominees. It was about nominees to the courts of appeal.

As soon as the talk-a-thon was finished, there were three more cloture votes, so Democrats were then formally filibustering six.

But wait, there's more. Democrats have served notice that they intend to filibuster six more, so the number being opposed is really 12 so far. Moreover, that's 12 out of a total of 41 nominees. Those are pretty significant numbers. Republicans should have had a counter sign to call attention to the real issue.

</div></div> Sure there are examples of Reps using the filibuster but Gayle's post leads people to believe the Reps are the only ones doing it.

So yes, Gayle, we have heard of filibuster and for the past 5 years the Dems have belittled the voting public and citizens of the United States by using and threatening to filibuster left and right.

Your mention of the 2000 election is ridiculous and a complete strawman. The reason being is that you don't have any idea what a respected law professor is and frankly EVERY SINGLE RECOUNT OF THE VOTES HAVE SHOWN BUSH AS THE WINNER OF THE ELECTION. Given that tidbit of info that you like to ignore there should have been no need to ever go to the level it did other than the Dems were whining that they lost and decided to drag out the losing fight as long as they could.

Democrats have a 1.01 member margin of control in the Senate. Republicans are locked into the concept of 60 votes, by threat of a filibuster. There are a lot of things that Democrats wanted to do, that Bush pushes Republicans to block.

Everything you have written in this post is a joke.

Correcting all your lies is a massive undertaking. Since your posts are irrelevent, and your party, and it's philosophies have been proven to be damageing to our country, and your party only captures 28% of voters, and losing more weekly, I nolonger find it worthwhile to debate with you.

Your inability to acknowledge Valarie Plames covert status is all anyone here needs to know about you.

As for being OLD, your accusation from another post, with a feeble attempt to dilute, after the fact, here's my offer, Ed.

Bring your running shoes to Maryland as we'll see who's old. I'm not carrying the weight of another person on my back, and I'm not overweight, and therefore, running up health care costs for the rest of the country. You've got a lot of nerve safely behind your desk, lets see what you're made of on the track. I'll leave you, and your nutty opinions behind me in the dust.

FYI, Steve's statement does not fly with the sworn testimony of the Exon Representative when he testified before Congress that the current price of oil has nothing to do with market fundamentals, but is being driven by energy traders, otherwise it would be in the $55.00 range instead of the $120.00 range, he said, where it was at the time, although higher now.

Neither of you know a fig about the economy. But then, you both voted for George Bush, twice! BWA HA HA HA....too funny. OMG&lt; an administration full of oil men and woman, Rice, and who wouldda thunk it, oil, almost at four dollars a gallon, and war in the Middle East!

You are right, Oil is not a big problem in terms of actual cost but more in terms of driving everything else up and, of course, the profiteers that keep bidding it up. We can hope for a crash for the speculators and, perhaps, a more sane policy on additional drilling, alternate fuels, not ethynol that uses up our food crops and causes more net polution than the gas itself.

Even the evil French have come to love safe reactors and Europe is dotted with them. Maybe, just maybe $6 a gallon will be exactly what we need to make us do something.

There is no profit in Peace and the Forces of Evil in our Government with their overflowing bank accounts will put up road blocks at every corner. Let us arm every unstable country with weapons, some of them Newclear.

I still believe the Evil Whitehouse/Blair House allowed 911 to strip the Constitution of Checks and Balance on the Presidency. Something Dick Cheney learned from from Shrub's father during Desert Stormt.

Bravo, Dick, and Condi, hands down, is among the best liars ever to ever emerge on the political scene.

The vast corruption of the Bush administration will continue to be the subject of books, for years to come. More and more will surface, as time goes by, and their power to intimidate is gone, and lets hope that our Democratic process, our Constitution, and our system of checks and balances, including the original intention of our founders Separation of Church and State, may all once again have some power and respect.

Soon, thankfully, George Bush will be back on his play ranch, catching fish, that don't exist, and congratulating himself on a fine job brownie. Rice, Bush and Cheney can now go get their secret payoffs from big oil, and Cheney, can scare the children in St. Michalels, instead of horrifying the whole world with his war profiteering war mongering, while Halliburton can commence with their campaign contributions to the next Republican leader of the Military Industrial Complex.????????????????

He is incapable of following anything, because his goal is always to twist everything that he, or anyone else writes. Here's what he said, and yet he offers no proof of his statement. The only thing he CAN do is insult others. That is his ONLY contribution to this forum. And admitting that he is wrong, is out of the question. His every post, is basically, irrelevant.

I missed the Condi Rice getting secret payoffs from "big oil". Where did that one come from? I didn't see it on Fox.....

Yes we have been hearing your "beliefs" for 7 years now.

I have noticed gayole is up to her old tricks again. I am on total ignore only until someone else responds to me then she will pipe in with more BS.

You posted my statement which is definitely not what Naz said which Q blamed me for saying. Sorry queen sheep, you know that saying about old dogs, new tricks...so much for fixing your comprehension issues.

First of all my post was to nAz and I didn't misrepresent anything. I never even quoted you.
Actually I think nAz's Q should have been directed to Bobbyrx who said, <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Jimmy Carter is the weakest president in my life time </div></div>

Additionally, I made a reference to Ed's statement, only. His ability to twist everything is amazing. The only thing Ed is really excellent at doing is being nasty, insulting, and rude. Again, he adds absolutely nothing of value to discussions here.

He had indicated some time back, new realizations about his constant nastines, apparently his brief period of inspirational reflection, compliments the great "Men's Meeting," didn't last long. So much for religious transformation. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

</div></div>No one is questioning who you were replying to. You did misrepresent what I said or you lied on purpose. You did not have to quote me, you said that I was the person that said Carter was the worst President. I never said that, so you were wrong.

Again, now you are saying Bobby is the person who said what Naz said, yet again, even reading the quote you provided Bobby did not even say it. A more logical response from you to Naz should have been no more than a question to Naz asking him who said what he said.

I noticed the queen sheep (who is finally figuring out that hillary is not electable) is back to her old antics again. She has me on total ignore but that only lasts until someone replies to me then she jumps in. LOL, her games crack me up.

Your ignorance is truly astounding.

Jimmy Carter, FYI, ended the grudges between Egypt and Israel.

Jimmy Carter, who inhereted the Nixon/Ford recession, has worked for peace throughout his life, and runs the Jimmy Carter Center, which provides aid and assistance for the poor and the homeless all over the world.

George Bush isn't good enough to lick his boots, and you should be ashamed of yourself, calling the man who managed successful peace negotiations between two countries, one of them Israel, anything but honorable, a man who has won the Nobel Peace Prize.

Nothing you write here is correct. Jimmy Carter is a scholar, and a gentleman, and probably the most honest president we have seen since Abe L.

That's your opinion. The Democrats have been trying to get something done about things that we should all be concerned about. Bush makes it clear that he will veto every bill that they work on, although they try to work across the isle, Bush frames issues in a manner that prevents any kind of working across the isle, by using his overused FEAR card.

You have an agenda, and that is to bash the Democrats, well, the Democrats didn't put us in the situation we're in right now, the Republicans did that, so maybe you should study what happened during the six years that they were in complete control of the Senate, the House and the White House, before you jump on the Democrats.

Pelosi accomplished what she promised to complete in the first 100 hours, but they don't have the numbers to overturn a veto.

McSame will give you more of the same, huge deficits, tax cuts for the rich, programs that send jobs out of the country, and more pumping money into the economy, and devaluing the dollar in the process. Fake economics, and just like Reagan did to Bush one, the next president will have to address this recession, high oil prices, huge deficits, and all the same ol' same ol' mess that Republicans always leave to Democrats to fix.

Both times in the last five decades that the budget was balanced, we had a Democrat in the White House. Every Republican President, left the country in an ecomnomic mess. Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush one and Bush two, every single one of them. Only Bill Clinton left this country with a surplus.

Spend, spend, spend, borrow, Borrow Borrow, while cutting taxes. How damned smart, or dumb, does a person have to be to understand what that leads to?

Jimmy Carter, who inhereted the Nixon/Ford recession, <span style="color: #FF6666"> and made it much, much worse. Here's where things stood in 1980, Carter's last year in office, and in subsequent periods:


Carter: Interest rate, 21%. Inflation, 13.5%. Unemployment, 7%. The so-called "Misery Index," which Carter used to great effect in his 1976 campaign to win election, 20.5%.

Reagan's last year: Interest rate, 9%. Inflation, 4.1%. Unemployment, 5.5%. Misery Index, 9.6%.

Bush today: Interest rate, 8%. Inflation, 2.6%. Unemployment, 4.5%. Misery Index, 7.1%.

<span style="color: #FF6666">The weakest President EVER..When the Soviets invaded Afghanistan he really told them:
An ineffectual grain embargo.

A boycott of the Moscow Olympics that hurt American athletes more than anyone.

An announcement from the president in an address to the nation shortly after New Year's in 1980 that "FISHING privileges for the Soviet Union in United States waters will be severely curtailed." ewwwwwwww

I'll even give him credit for Camp David and the Habitat for Humanity but after that...NOTHING.... he is antisemitic and travels the world now bashing the U.S. and coddling our enemies

I'm sorry, you are right, I should not have used the word ignorant.

I don't agree with your numbers, or your accusations against Jimmy Carter.

Ford's administration is the one you should be comparing Carter's to, since Ford's administration was at the heart of the recession that Carter inherited.

Bush One inherited Reagans deficits and economic down turn.

Clinton, of all, is the only one who left our economy in good condition, without soaring deficits.

If you believe that our economy is strong, that leaves little space for us to debate. I do not, as I have done some reading about the methods that this administration has promoted for deciphering our economic numbers. We will not have true reports until they're are gone, IMO, on the Economy, or on the war.

Things are very bad for most Americans. I would think that we could agree on that much, and it isn't only because of the present situation with oil, but instead, to a very large degree, the war we were lied into, plays a huge role in our failing economy.

You are right that all things CAN be skewed by the various right or left pundits, but our Government Charts, prove that the rich have enjoyed huge financial growth during the Republican Administrations, while the Middle Class, and poor, have lost out. There is also much proof about the deficits left by every REpublican Administration, hence, their philosophy never seems to pan out, because the Government, and spending, always grows, while they are cutting taxes.

Debt, including interest, is the true factor, which I think most Republicans fail to calculate in their interpretations.
