Republicans Let America Down Again

No deal!

All the Democrats are saying that a deal had been imminent, and that Republicans, most especially John McCain, stymied it.

Republicans claim there never was a deal, and that it's a Democrat fantasy that there was, but that hasn't stopped Democrats from hitting McCain from every side.

Republicans had nothing to say about Obama which would indicate that Obama did his part in trying to secure an agreement.

Of course and as usual, none of that is true, but where are the Republicans to counter every Democrat charge?

What am I saying… where are the Republicans to make charges of their own?

Am I nuts…

Why didn't the Republicans launch the first assaults instead of playing defense?

Well, there is is, I -have- taken leave of my senses – WHAT DEFENSE?

Meanwhile, George Bush is less than worthless, also as usual.

If I were your average American idiot, I'd think that Republicans are to blame not just for a deal falling through, but for the entire crisis.

Which is why I am not now nor have I ever been a Republican?

They're terrible as a minority party and worse as a majority party. Don't they know there's a war on? And that the Middle East isn't involved in it?

Republicans are the only reason we know who Barack Obama is, and now, despite Bill Clinton's help, they may be responsible for an Obama victory.


Edit: I heard McCain trying to explain what's gone on, and it was pathetic. I look for him to be just as passive tonight as all the other Republicans have been over the past two days.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

  1. No deal is better than a bad deal- the proposal will double the national debt. For the same money they could capitalize new banks auction off the stock to repay the money and we would have new banks with clean ballance sheets. The new banks could make good loans and the economy wouldn't come to a hault.

    Bad deal or no deal is not the issue of which I was speaking, I was talking solely about how Republicans have conducted themselves.
    We also have no idea what the cost will be or even if there will be a final net cost, but if the Democrats control the outcome, it will surely be a bigger mess.
    The idea you've mentioned is unworkable just from a logistical standpoint alone. Has some prominent figure proposed that?

  3. Hell no, prominent figures created the mess and they are too busy bull shitting to cover their ass and masterbating to come up with a new and workable idea. It's my idea.

  4. Darcy says:

    The "we have a deal" and "now we don't have a deal, because McCain messed it up" was nothing more than political dirty tricks. They never had an agreement. Also I hear there were ear marks for ACORN attached. I'm glad they wouldn't sign off on it.

  5. I was watching CNBC and they were interviewing a couple that owed $243,000 on their home and said that the present value of the house is $100,000. They also have some credit card debt. If I was in their place I would short sale the house or just walk away which ever worked out better tax wise. Welcome to the deflated Mississippi bubble economy.

  6. Darcy says:

    It's all very sad. We'll see these stories night after night on the news if McCain wins. If Obama wins, it will get better overnight because they will stop talking about it. Remember Regan and the homeless? The homeless were a problem under Regan because Carter emptied out the mental institutions.

  7. TedWest says:

    Zak, you seem to have a reckless streak tonight… you overlooked the fact that anyone who "walks away" won't be buying another house for… oh, I don't know… the rest of their lives?

  8. We can't foretell the future; with this de-leveraging we may all be upside-down on our mortgages very soon. Being down $143,000. is serious and going through a chapter 7 or 13 isn't the end of the world. One can have good credit again sooner then the equity on that loan may recover.

  9. TedWest says:

    As you said, we can't foretell the future, and a bankruptcy may have just gotten a lot more serious. Not to mention that he's not down 143k except on paper. The house could come back far sooner than the credit rating.
    Not to mention that if everyone walked away, there would be chaos, and those people would, as I said, have trouble for a very long time. Bankruptcy should always be an absolute last resort.

  10. This is going to take ten years or more to fix- this is just like 1929.

  11. Jordan says:

    Ted, those are the same questions I have asked myself for days, months, many moons. Even more so after hearing Obama/Pelosi/Dems' lies.Is there a republican out there capable of counteroffensive?My blood pressure rose when I heard Pelosi's outright prevarication, err,,,grandstanding that republicans were "unpatriotic" (libs' latest line of defense) for their supposed "no-show" during the first part of the week, followed by rejection of the "done deal."Unless republicans wake up and knock over these lies, many Americans will go to the polls with the wrong ideas.

  12. Jordan says:

    Anyone who compares today's economic events to the 1929 Depression is clueless about that era.However, liberals, time and again, have managed to sell a canard to uninformed buyers. Easily found – perchance in fewer numbers – also on the "other side."

  13. Jordan I disagree & time will prove that there are may similarities. The bottom line is this is Human Action woking itself out in the markets.

  14. TedWest says:

    When have Republicans ever had a backbone? They always rely on the citizens to do the right thing.
    As for comparing this to 1929, there's great similarity. If you don't believe it, Joe Biden has videotapes of the era.
