I Hate To Say I Told You So

To my ex-and-never-to-be-again conservative friends. Remember when I told you that if we, meaning the Republican crapbags you stood by, didn't do something to guarantee greater accessibility to Health care, that we'd get the very thing you feared most?

And remember the names you called me? Before you stormed out? Well, two things happened today that brought it all back

First I had to see the lowest of the low, aka Ken, talking about how he FAVORED reforms now, just not the ones being proposed. I know you don't know Ken, but it's largely because of you that I do. And it was a year and a half ago that Ken & Friends called me everything they could think of because I said in another forum the SAME THING I TOLD YOU!

True, you couldn't possibly match Ken's ugliness, but that won't stop me from lumping you together.

And who was right?

Well, part right? Because I admit that even I couldn't have possibly imagined it was going to be this bad.

ANd we don't even have it yet!

But let me tell you about my second encounter before you answer the "who was right" question.

Greta just interviewed Mary Landrieu, about her Louisiana purchase, and one of the things Greta said was that Republicans are in favor of reform, they just want to do it incrementally, simpler, far cheaper, and make sure it works.

And what do you think Mary replied? Well, "they didn't do it when they were in power. They didn't spend two minutes on it, they just gave tax cuts to their rich friends." That's not an exact quote, but it's the exact essence.

So now… who was right?

You don't all have to answer at once, and Ken won't be answering at all, no matter how much I miss his pigeon-English

I recently told a friend I don't carry grudges. Well take some solice in the fact that I was wrong about that.

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.

    "… they just gave tax cuts to their rich friends …" grrrrr. and I"m going to bed pissed off! 😉 (p.s. it's solace and a bunch of us will be needing as dose if the brick in socialism is laid this weekend.)

  2. Al Qaeda and the Taliban aren't America's real enemies- the Democratic Party is.

  3. Jeff D says:

    Unfortunately Landrieu is at least partly right. The Republicans had their chance to do this the right way and instead were more focused on paying off their supporters. That leaves it difficult for me to believe that if we put them back in power they'll actually do it the right way at that point.

  4. TedWest says:

    Landrieu isn't partially right, she's completely right. Republicans are responsible for all that's happened. As recently as yesterday, Rush Limbaugh claimed that there is no crisis in health care. However, we have no choice but to restore them to power because it's a zero sum game, and if the Democrats remain the majority party,we're done. Period. And it may already be too late. But do I think Republicans have learned any lessons? Not a bit – as evidenced by their weak response to the Dems phony accusations of threats and violence and then attributing it to Republican incitement.
    Allthough Eric Cantor has responded more forcefully today, but not nearly forceful enough.
    What I don't get is how you can accuse Republicans pf paying off their supporters without mentioning how enormously more the Dems are doing the same thing. Perhaps if you provided an example or two, it would become clearer and then I could provide you with a dozen examples of Democrat corruption.
    That certainly wouldn't excuse the Reps for any valid examples you cite, but it would greatly reduce their significance when contrasted with what Democrats are doing right in our faces.
    Do you understand how fundamentally evil Obama and liberals are?

  5. What is your litmus test of a conservative? I have mine and there are damn few conservatives left.

  6. TedWest says:

    To be honest, I call myself a conservative for identification purposes, but I've never tried to define it. I just know one when I see one. My wife just told me that she read about four types of conservatives. – so they can't define it for themselves. But there are conservatives and conservatives I respect. The latter are pitifully few, and it has to do with weakness. If we consider the Founding Fathers to be most like our concept of a conservative now, then they were anything but weak. They were bold – they plotted to overthrow the government by force for a greater good.
    Look how defensive those clowns are today, all because of liberal fabrication of alleged threats. I wouldn't apologize. I'd tell liberals they should be happy that's all they are getting is threats after what they've done to America.

  7. I hate to use the conservative label anymore that's how bad it has become- I usually use paleo-conservative or libertarian. I don't support the status quo- LBJ & the Democrats gutted the Federal system we now live under a national centralized oligarchy.
