progress indeed
Now that progress has been made, [Obama] said, "we can't have special interests sitting shotgun. We gotta have middle class families up in front. We don't mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back."


I was just barely awake when D turned the news on this morning, so I had to turn to him and ask, "Did I just hear a black man say that certain people have to sit in the back?"

He said, yeah, that was a really unfortunate metaphor.

Leaving aside the incredible lack of tact, I find it perplexing that he wants middle class families 'up front' but Republicans in back. Who, exactly, does he think does most of the Republican voting?

I don't think he knows. I don't think he knows anything.

Are you serious? Wow...I can't believe he said that.... Maybe it was on purpose? And he had the nerve to call Kanye a jackass.

The democrats in government have just as much money as republicans in government; they're just better at fooling the stupid poor masses into believing they're for them. At least most of the time the democrats tend to just spout out about being for the working man, the ethnic man, the poor man, the everyday man. Most people don't really pay attention to what actually goes on.

Still, the Republican's don't exactly help their own cause a lot either. As you know, I'm not a fan of any media, but Fox News and their 'fair and unbiased' reporting can't help but be extremely biased toward the right...and also some of the crazies on there don't help matters. Like...I agree with most of what Glenn Beck has to say (most, not all), but he's such a condescending ass that I care not to listen to him, watch him, or even look at his stupid face. And some of the Republican politicians are the same way...they just spout off stupid crap at inopportune times and come off looking like lunatics.

This is why I am in favor of burning down the entire government and starting over.

Both parties can just suck it as far as I'm concerned. I'm a conservative and a capitalist, so if I have to call myself anything, it's a republitarian. All politicians are full of crap no matter what side they're on. I don't feel like any of them represent me or reality.

We only watch Fox for their evening anchored newscast. We don't watch much of the opinion/analysis shows, Beck or O'Reilly or anything like that. But I can't imagine they're any worse than their lefty counterparts. All a bunch of blowhards from where I sit, whether I agree with them in theory or not.

This is why I am in favor of burning down the entire government and starting over.

For real.

I'm going to say that the party needs a really, really good PR team because the politicians and Beck and his kind make the rest of their people look like idiotic xenophobes. Oh and I have a distaste for their counterparts too (YOU SUCK DIRTY SOCKS, BILL MAHER, YOU KNOW YOU DO!).
