Wall Street, Main Street, Future Street

Wall Street, Main Street, Future Street

The Democrats have the majority, if the “BAILOUT” bill was so great why did so many DEMOCRATS not support it? Democrats voted 140 to 95 in favor of the legislation, while just 65 Republicans backed the bill and 133 opposed it.

I am absolutely glad this bill failed and WE need to vote every moron currently holding a seat OUT of office. Reagan had it right: “I’m from the Government and I’m here to help” Doesn’t make me feel better at all.

Remember all those libtards that say “Republicans had the majority” so they should have done yada yada yada…. Well the Democrats have the MAJORITY, and look.. 140 to 95 so almost 1/3 of Democrats did not want this bailout, less than half of the Republicans voted against it..

So while the Pelosi’s and Franks are blaming the Republicans, they need to look in there own house. Oh but that would be taking responsibility for the failure.WHY not 100% Democrat support? Obama liked it? Let me tell you why, it is unpopular and Obama can’t be seen as supporting an unpopular bill, McCain is used to SUPPORTING unpopular bills, that’s why he is called a “MAVERICK” and that is STRAIGHT FORWARD walk the walk leadership that is in dire need.

The Pelosi mantra as adopted by the most liberal congress ever, is BLAME Bush. Well Bush is not totally responsible for this mess.. IF you haven’t seen the truth, you need to, unfortunately YOUTUBE has taken the video down, perhaps it is due to Obama’s “Stop the truth” campaign.

Don’t Blame the Democrats?? WTF?

Pelosi: Dems bear no responsibility for economic crisis

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, when asked Tuesday whether Democrats bear some of the responsibility regarding the current crisis on Wall Street, had a one-word answer: “No.”

Pelosi (D-Calif.) ripped President Bush’s “mismanagement” of the economy and a lack of regulation that led to the current situation.

“I think the American people have had it with this situation where the middle-income people in our country are not protected from the ramifications of the risk-taking and the greed of these financial institutions,” Pelosi told MSNBC.

When asked whether the Democrats “deserve some responsibility” regarding the economic crisis, Pelosi responded: “No.”

“John McCain said that this is a result of overregulation by the Democrats in Congress,” she added. “Either he doesn’t know what he’s talking about or he’s misrepresenting the facts as he knows them. But it’s simply not true.”

Republicans responded quickly, pointing out that a Congress led by Democrats had not helped the economy.

“The Pelosi-Obama Congress has failed to pass an all-of-the-above energy plan, failed to stop earmarks, and failed to break the partisan gridlock that plagues Washington,” RNC spokesman Alex Conant said. “If Pelosi thinks the Democratic Congress is doing a good job handling the economy now, then just imagine how bad our economy would be if Democrats controlled the White House, too.”

(Emphasis mine)

As I have been saying for YEARS, the Democrat way is to deny, deflect and absolve themselves of ALL blame at all cost. EXAMPLE: Iraq, How many stood up and said “I authorized it, I am responsible for the outcome and I will accept the responsibility for my actions? ONE, Joe Lieberman. The rest have deflected blame and tried to lose the conflict at every turn. Nuff said about that.

Now we have a new problem, and the DEMOCRAT CONTROLLED CONGRESS, says “Not us” well lets look at who actually pulls the purse strings in Government, The House and Senate. Who creates, regulates, and oversees matters of finance? Congress. Who is the speaker? A democrat named Pelosi. BUT DON’T blame her, blame Bush, blame Bush, blame Bush… What will happen to the Democrats solution of “Blame Bush” when Bush is out of office? They will find another to blame after the first 3 years I assume, everything wrong for the first 3 years will be blamed on Bush. As usual. BUT I really hope folks will see what a Democrat controlled Congress gets us. An Economy that tanks because of Tax fears, Over regulation, and Corruption…

No Barrack Hussien Obama, and REMOVE ALL Liberals from Government. ALL of them Kick them the hell out, and why we are at it, Kick all the Party first, kiss Bush’s ass at all times Republicans out too.

A Conservative Majority is the only way out of this mess, and that is where the BLAME Game would stop.

Thoughts on the DNC

Thoughts on the DNC

Since the Olympics are over, and there is very little else on I have listened to the DNC speeches, hoopla, and what-nots… Very unimpressed.

I watched the “Faith” part at the beginning and felt it was more pandering. It looks to me like the Democrats are finding WHOEVER they can that supports their anti-American stance, and places them in the limelight. Case and Point:
The honor guard: The VFW all of the guys well over 65 and CNN cameras gave them as much time as some of the speakers.
The Indian “Council member” singing the national anthem.
The Hillary supporters dancing with Obama Supporters.
The Hispanic Caucus talking about “Humanity”
They are showing as many OLDER people as they can, to try to show that OLDER voters are ready to follow “youth”

These are just opinions formed while having my usual election year smoke enema.

I also got to thinking, What change? Obama/Biden is change? What change exactly?

In 2006 the Senate and the House were changed, they went to Democrats. Change? Yep we got change, we got an economy dropping like Monica in the oval office, we got…..I really cant think of a damn thing that has been done in 2 years of Democrat leadership. They ran on Change, we got changed… happy now? Well if you can reason that it’s all GWB’s fault the economy took a turn then you are a democrat. IF you believe it is a combination of the two, an idiot in the White House, and a Disgustingly Horrible Congress. Then You are a disgruntled voter clinging to religion and guns.

I am seeing a bunch of so-called working class people dancing around the democrat convention floor, talking about “Obama is going to change America”?
What I am seeing is ALL of these folks appear to have jobs or are in college. I heard one lady interviewed saying she was a nurse, and another was working in manufacturing and supporting Obama…but the economy is down and it’s the Republicans fault?

The economy is slow, the dollar value is down, we still have troops in Iraq, we still are fighting in Afghanistan, we have Georgia being swallowed by Russia, Iran is on the horizon and N.Korea and China are still viable threats to our security. These are ISSUES, these are pressing problems that the next president will have to address.
Iraq is MUCH better now than it was in 2006, if you don’t believe me, look at the media coverage of Iraq for the past 6 to 9 months…uh yeah basically NONE, well unless some bombs go off and innocent folks get killed. It brings out all the Anti-American sentiment when it happens, which amazes me… When innocent civilians die because a group of religious thugs want to make a point, it is America’s or GWB’s fault for not protecting them… Only in America.

My point is Iraq is better now than it was in 2006, is that because of the demorat Congress? How much time was spent trying to impeach, cut funds, or surrender by congress over Iraq?

Obama himself has softened his stance on surrender in Iraq too, those that think Obama will remove our troops from Iraq as soon as he steps in office are living a pipe dream, and if you think Obama will pull the troops from Iraq, and all the money to be spent there will automatically end up in your favorite causes wallet, you are smoking out of that pipe.

Here is another thing folks should think about Iraq, They are already deciding when we will leave and how we will do it. IT will be already in the works prior to the next president. AND the only one of the two candidates that actually will benefit from a victorious withdrawal would be McCain, the candidate that benefits from a defeat or just a withdraw and chaos ensuing in Iraq, is Obama.

So here is what we are hearing and the lemmings are sopping it up with a bisquit:
The democrats are going to fix the economy (They are leaving out any mention of Iraq other than the usual “We shouldn’t be there” in 2004 it was “Surrender” they can’t say that now. Even idiots that wanted us to withdraw in 04 want to see it through now.)

So the economy comes out as the #1 issue, but how are they going to fix it? Demorats have been in charge of the house, and senate which has FAR more power in NATIONAL matters than it has in foreign affairs, and our economy tanked since they have been in charge… So do you think the Democrats have engineered a struggling economy to benefit themselves in this election? Do you think Pelosi and crew have left some things off the table that could have stopped the dollars decline? Some say yes.

Your thoughts?

BTW, I can’t wait for the Republicans Bullshit show either.
