  •  it's called reality (4.00)
    If someone declares war on you, you have to go to war with them. Something the Democrats can't seem to fathom. It ain't pretty but it's necessary, and if you have to go to war, you go to war to win. Seems like common sense to me, but our elected Democrats? I think they're all like Alam Colmes, in that they're the "official opposition party of the Republican party". Most of our elected Democrats seem to be there strictly for show.

    •  I agree, but found your comment ironic (none)
      The way you intertwined your opinion that this should be a non-partisan idea with the call to use "every political trick in the book" just struck me as humorous. It also reminded me of the Republicans who will tell us that we are too uncivil, as they compare us to Osama and claim we should be executed for treason.

      I think we need less civility from those officials with the power to stand up to the evil which has infested the Republican Party, but more civility among those of us who are better positioned to try to mend the broken bonds which have been shattered during Bush's historic plunge from record high approval ratings and unprecedented national unity, to this current era of near-record low approval and terrible divisiveness.

      •  well, my point was (none)
        actually that it SHOULD be a non-partisan reality that those in the executive branch are a bunch of criminals who have hijacked not only our country, but the conservative movement and the Republican party as well. However that's not the reality, as most republicans seem quite happy to have their party hijacked and their constitution destroyed, as long as the hijackers put an (r) after their names. Which is yet another reason why I really don't like republicans. They have absolutely no scruples about anything. At the same time, those who DO recognize the truth should use every dirty political trick in the book to get our country back.
