  •  Think hard, my friend -- When was the last time (0+ / 0-)

    you heard me say something nice about the GOP?

    I believe that I've had much nicer things to say about the current administration (and some not so nice things) than I've had to say about the GOP.

    Which, as a conservative, really pisses me off.

    I do believe that Democrats gave the unemployed short shrift in the period prior to the 2010 election.  I also believe that 2010 was a richly deserved thrashing.

    But -- it was exasperation, not an endorsement of the GOP, which has squandered the opportunity given it by voters.

    Other than that rather serious neglect, I'm not angry with Democrats even when I think they're wrong.  Other than abandoning workers for those two years, they've more or less done what Democrats do. That's what they should do.

    Republicans, on the other hand, have been a steaming pile of horse shit -- AND -- they've turned away when we need leadership more than any time in recent history.

    That's not what Eisenhower would do, It's not even what Nixon, Ford, or both Bushes would do.

    Incompetence is one thing. Willfully turning your back on your country when it needs you the most?

    That's worht getting angry.

      I think it's honest frustration on your part, and you are no GOP defender.

      •  I feel kind of bad about that rant, though. (1+ / 0-)

        So I've come up with some nice things to say about the GOP:

        1. Boehner has a really nice tan if you're into orange.

        2. In the wake of hurricane Sandy, Chris Christie showed signs of not being a completely oblivious idiot.  I also feel a certain affinity for him as a fellow Corpulent American.

        3.  George Prescott Bush is a nice looking young man, and speaks good Spanish.

        4. It wouldn't surprise me to learn that the Romneys give out nice Halloween candy. I also wouldn't be surprised to learn that they buy Girl Scout cookies and pick up pies at school bake sales.

        5.  When you don't do anything at all, it's hard to do too much that's really bad.

        6. Gotta go back to Chris Christie. What a nice easy name to remember.

        7.  The Koch brothers have done a fine job of alleviating the unemployment problem among pollsters, political consultants, and lobbyists.

        8. Better still, the David H. Koch foundation funded NOVA to the tune of $7 million.  I love NOVA. I think everybody should love NOVA.

        9. I don't care what all you prissy young liberals say.  Clint Eastwood is still cool.  

        10. Aw man, I think I have to stop now.  I'm getting down to Lincoln freed the slaves, Eisenhower won the Big One, and TR looked great on horseback.
