  •  No, really, stay Republican (5+ / 0-)

    vote for Giuliani, then Mitt as the sacrificial lamb in 2012, then Jeb Bush when he finally breaks through in 2016, then Jim Talent in 2020, then Kerry Wood in 2024.

    I don't want Republicans crossing over and voting for Democrats, ever. And please, keep rolling your eyes and laughing when you hear someone mention global warming, even when your Disney cruise ship sails over the ancient North Pole.

    I will never forgive the GOP. I am so tired of the "I voted for Bush twice, and I want him impeached" crowd. You want forgiveness? Raise your taxes to 100%, pay them for 35 years, then die before you retire.

    Leave a cup of spit so we don't have to make the effort to actually spit on your grave.

    Rest in Hell, conservatism.

    •  Yes--I Mean Not Voting "As" Democrats (2+ / 0-)

      I mean mean what I say about Sermon on the Mount: no public prayer, heal the sick, feed the hungry, negotiate and resolve issues with enemies, put a lid on great wealth, and beyond the religious theme, use government to make sure it gets done and stays done.

      I definitely do not want anyone more Liebermanning or fake Greens etc.

      We don't have time for short-term thinking.

    •  My concern, which I've had to repeat ... (8+ / 0-)

      ...a lot lately, is how many Republicans will move to the Democratic Party without really adopting Democratic Party values. Now, we could get into a big debate about that, with those of us on the far left of the party getting pissed at those in the middle and the other fringe. And I don't want to get into that at the moment. But while Republicans who have truly seen the light - like a Kevin Phillips, say - switch parties, hurrah. There are, however, too many who will jump ship and bring a lot of their Republican values with them, and start nudging the party even more to the right than it has already moved in the past 25 years.  

      So, when it comes time for withdrawal from Iraq, when it comes time for stem cell sanity, when it comes time to impeach Bush, Cheney and Rove, I welcome Republican votes. But, please, stay Republicans, eh?

        Agreed.

        Every Republican has already failed to put the nation's security, prosperity, and legal obligations above parochial interests. The time to convert has passed.

        No one deserves credit for dropping Republican credentials now that the truth is out about their party. They are the party of shame. They made it shameful to speak the truth. The consequences to our nation have been harsh and perilous.

        No one deserves points for belatedly opposing a pre-emptive war sold by fast-talking holdovers from Viet Nam, Nixon, and Iran-Contra.

        No matter how naive a few Republicans might claim to have been, their lapses of judgment at moments of national crisis require us to replace them or, failing that, to disown them.

      A-freakin'-men! These people want absolution for a gigantic problem they help create. This back-pedaling is laughable, except so many innocent lives are at risk.

      I don't see anything being different in September that isn't in place now. The surge ain't working in our favor. We're losing more lives and killing more Iraqis and still have no clue what we're accomplishing.

      This is beyond insane. Bush is sending all of us beyond the abyss.

      :(

      -7.38, -5.23 One day we ALL will know the truth about the 2000 presidential election. God help us all.
