That’s how long we all have to wait before Bush leaves office. It’s a sobering thought: 2009 seems farther away than the moon. How do we hold out for that long, under the leadership of a child? Our only hope is to soften the pain by giving Congress back to the Democrats in November. Even if we succeed, 2009 still seems a millennium away. Let’s hope America is still intact by the time Bush rides off into the sunset.

That’s a little over the top don’t you think? I mean the Democrats have only themselves to blame for not getting rid of him in 2004. Choosing John Kerry was not a smart choice and then, runing on his “war record”, was just plain lunacy.

And today they still beat themselves up. The debate on Iraq? Handing Carl Rove a way to beat up them? Ridiculous.

The Democrats are running out of time to produce a leader of stature and intelligence. There are some like James Webb, but not as many as needed. Hillary? Give me a break. Pelosi, intellectual lightweight.

Until the Democratic party gets rid of its fascination with gay rights and feminism and gets back to sticking up for econmic justice it will bay in wilderness………….

Where has the Democratic Party shown fascination with gay rights and feminism?

It’s fascinating to me that some people can so easily dismiss the concerns of women and gays by relegating them to the category of “special interests.”

Let’s see, women + gays = more than 50% of the population, wouldn’t you say?

Well, if women don’t like America, then they can all move to….hm….to MY HOUSE! ๐Ÿ™‚

Especially single red-heads and/or Jewish girls between 18 and 30.

(Now you see, THAT is what a “special interest” really is….)

I’ll bite. The Democratic party has shown a fascination with gays and feminism in its presidential nomination process, by catering to groups that support and (literally) are in bed with these issues.

Problem is, the positions they espouse do not represent the concerns of real people, men or women. Look at the whole gay marriage thing. People don’t like it. Period.

You can get incensed all you want. The electoral record supports my position………

I know of no democratic candidate for major office who has made gay mareriage an important issue, or even an issue at all. How are you referring to? Or are you repeating a Bush talking point? (Dems are for gay marriage!) Most distance themselves from it. The dems have never embraced it, though most (and most Repubs, too) have fought against obscene changes to our constitution to prohibit it. I think you’ve swallowed the GOP propaganda line and see it as reality. It’s horse shit.
