toby8915: silvervial: nyseattitude: I wish republicans didn't exist

I say that every day. Think of how much we could have accomplished for our country and the world, even if just in this century, if they didn't...or if all repubs were like Teddy Roosevelt.

No wars, especially not the war we've been in the longest in our history
Single-payer health care
Same-sex marriage legal in all states
Abortion easily available in all states, treated as the private medical decision that it is
A thriving middle class and ever-shrinking poverty numbers
No banking economic crash
A balance between military and domestic program spending
Incentives to retain jobs in this country instead of off-shoring
A compassionate immigration program
A well-supported education system applied equally across the country and stringent home-schooling requirements
Student loan reform
Campaign financing reform
Sane and balanced gun control

...a frigging utopia. Sigh.)

You...are an idiot. 
No wars? Last time I checked it was a democrat who got us into ww1, ww2, Korea, Vietnam, and expanded the war in Afghanistan.
I am not going to even bother getting into the errors of most of your other points.


OK, well, we wouldn't have had:

Grenada (which was St. Ronnie's thing), Desert Storm (which may or may not have been necessary), Iraq, Afghanistan (if we hadn't been there in the first place, the Democrat wouldn't have needed to "expand" it).

Abortion, same-sex marriage, immigration, campaign-finance reform and gun control would have continued to be issues; but without the demented intractability and the "let's make Obama a one-term president!" rhetoric, they'd have been smaller, local, and more easily resolved.

The banking crisis would have happened (since Clinton repealed Glass-Steagall at the behest of Wall Street, not the Republicans), but it would have been more easily rectified for the same reason as above.

The debt-ceiling crisis would not have occurred.

Education, home-schooling and the student-loan crunch would not have been reduced to LIBERALS BAD! GOD GOOD!

Union-busting would not have become a thing again.

We would not be having the "single-moms cause poverty" discussion that had previously been quashed when I was a wee lass in the 70's.

Shall I go on?

Which in fairness, would have been far more hilarious. Seriously kids. If you're so deep into butthurt that you can't be joined together for cheering the same damn sports, then you are officially dead inside. Well, except maybe for horse ballet--if you're cheering for dressage and looking to be "the man of the people" then folks can point and laugh. But hockey? Cripes. Let it go, kids. Let. It. Go. Next thing up: no Democrat can cheer on baseball or football and ONLY European soccer teams, and certainly not local colleges or high schools, because that's just "pandering" when they do it, but when a Republican Senator who hasn't seen the inside of his own home in nearly a year of hard work at the capitol, he sends congratulations for the local boys, that's true support, amirite?

Oh my god it's full of butthurt.

Dude. Post a picture of Henry Byrd in his Klan outfit. That'll fix our liberal red wagon.


Yeah.  I also seriously doubt he is/was against U.S. involvement in WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and the surge of the Republican led half-assed effort in Afghanistan, because GW had to go on an unnecessary and expensive nation building mission in Iraq (after being elected saying he wouldn't "nation build").

I do find it interesting how conservatives will find (or embellish) actions by Democratic politicians which traditionally Liberals frown on but conservatives celebrate, in order to criticize the Democratic politician.  Notice they never criticize the policy, just the person doing it because they actually agree with the policy. You see it with the NSA spying.  How many times have you heard that while Republicans started it but that is OK, it only became a bad thing when President Obama took over.  Meanwhile "liberals" don't like it period.  Liberals want it scaled back, conservatives just want a Republican POTUS running it.  It is obvious by the conservative response to President Obama wanting to scale it back.  He gets accused of compromising national security by conservatives.

Anyone who follows them either:
A) would vote for them even if they raped a nun in the middle of Times Square as long as they remember to shout "BENGHAZI" as they gave her the money shot, or
B) is just following them to point out how childish they are on twitter.

I really don't see what they're getting out of this except the possibility of raising the existential question of "How much sand can your twitter account's vagina contain before it officially becomes the Sahara Desert?"

Well obviously the Democrats were secretly behind the assassination of that Archduke, put up "Bomb Me" signs on the US fleet in Pearl Harbor, sent "Party in Seoul, bring your tanks!" invitations to the North Koreans, and bet the French one night at a party that they wouldn't try to re-take northern Vietnam.

Where are you seeing any outrage about these tweets?  I see people being incredulous, wryly amused, perhaps exasperated, but I'm not seeing any outrage specific to the tweets.  Sure, there's some outrage at the Republicans in general, but when you've got a dyspeptic orangutan that smears its feces on everything in your house every chance it gets, you're going to get a bit wary when you hear it cut a fart, even a small one.
