What's old is new again.

It seems that the dems are going to try to run on what worked for them in the past, namely Bush Bashing.

Okay, yes in the last election the democratic party won on a platform that basically read "Ebil Bush McHitlerburton is evil and you should vote for us because we're not."

But here's a news flash for ya. You have had the vast majority of both houses and the white house for more than 18 months now. Anything wrong with this country is YOUR FAULT. Got that? Your policies and agendas have had more than enough time to cause whatever good you wanted. They've also had plenty of time to screw things up, if that's what they were gonna do. Guess what? nearly 10% unemployment, tax revenues taking a dive for the basement, a national debt that chews up most of what taxes do bring in, it's all due to your handiwork in DC.

I was gonna say that the American people are not dumb enough to fall for the same song and dance twice. But honestly, so long as the bread and circuses continue, the majority of them probably will. Yes Alan, I'm a pessimist it seems.

It's sad that 2 years after the fact, the dems are still running against Bush, the younger. Honestly, I don't think he was that good of a president. Granted I think he's exponentially better than the current one, but he's no Reagan either.

What's will be even more sad is in 2012 or 2016 when they continue to run against Bush II. My advice is if you want to run against a ghost. How about Reagan or Lincoln or, hell, how about Washington or even Tyler. Hey, let's go classic, how about the ghost of Banquo from MacBeth.

The dems have had control of both sides of Congress since 2006. That's two years before Obama got into office. All that crap they blame on Bush was the fault of the democrats.

We and the economy was doing quite well until 2006 when everything started sliding into the shitter.

I wouldn't say that it was just the fault of the Democrats. Indeed, Bush signed stuff into law his entire eight years, that became part of the problem, much of which was placed there by Republicans.

A pox on both their houses!

I'm probably going to vote Republican this November, but I will also make it very clear that the Republicans are on probation. I don't trust them, not one bit!
