      How come everybody forgets that everything fell apart under Bush's watch?

      The economy was shedding a half a million jobs a month at the end of Bush's term.

      But god forbid you mention that or you are "just blaming Bush."

      It's ridiculous.

      Exactly. Republican blinders.

      Anybody see Newt call his ex a liar on the debates. What a scumbag. Talk about doing the two-step. Funny ****.

      Goddamned Right, but I fixed that for accuracy.

      I refuse to give one man or one party all of the credit or all of the blame. They're all responsible for their action and inaction thruout their time in office

      I know you're referring to Republican obstructionism over the past few years, but BOTH sides are responsible for the financial cluster**** we're in right now. Congress really does need a massive reset. 80% of them are dirty.

      Above is everything you've said in this thread to date. Four snide, anti-Republican remarks and a fifth that could easily be interpreted as such given the poor choice of wording of the person you were quoting. I fail to see the obvious statement from you saying both sides were to blame.

      I can't imagine why someone might assume you were being sarcastic with your:

      I just outlined your entire contribution to this thread. What exactly did I miss?

      Given your obvious ire for all things conservative and Republican in this (and many other) threads, and your frequent use of sarcasm in THIS thread, you're either naiive or ignorant if you don't think your response to this:

      ...could be perceived as yet another sarcastic jab at the Republican party.

      My point is(was) that people will throw out terms like "Republican blinders' & point out
      the loss of jobs at the end of GW's term while conspicuously leaving out the fact that
      the end of Bush's term was a full 2 yrs into a solid Democrat majority in congress.

      Who has the blinders on?

      Oh & I'll make jabs at Republicans.
      Being that I'm a Republican, it's ok though. It's like black folks using the N word.

      If you're not going to read what I'm saying, and acknowledge that what you said could easily be interpreted as "Abso-****ing-lutely, the Dems would be more than happy to blame the (currently Republican) Congress for the current mess," then **** it... I can't explain it any more clearly. It obviously isn't me with the reading / mental comprehension problem.

      If your intent was different, you could have easily said so in a decent manner. Instead, you decided to be a dick about it. Did someone piss in your Ensure this morning?

      I am not responsible for your clear lack of comprehension. Had you asked the question in a civil manner you might have gotten a civil answer.

      My age has nothing with your inability to read.

      Forget it. You're either being intentionally belligerent by ignoring my point, or you're incompetent. Either way, I'm done.

      I think the arbitrary connections I make between Romney and Obama are getting more amusing by the day. Now his critics are asking for him to release his tax returns. Barry (POTUS, not the user) can be his shoulder to cry on.
