Tuesday January 31st.

Ugh.

Not only will we have to endure another hour-long mangling of English enunciations that can make even the most ardent Bush-backer wince, what I'll REALLY be shaking my head and yelling at the screen over will be the President's seemingly bottomless pit of welfare/healthcare expenditures he's gonna hand out and yet another gazillion dollars he plans to waste for "third-world aid" (namely for Africa).................

<­BR>

ALL THE WHILE ANOTHER 5,000 ILLEGAL ALIENS WILL STREAM ACROSS THE BORDER AT THE SAME TIME HE BLATHERS ON ABOUT STRENGTHENING HOMELAND SECURITY!!!

If you think about it, we had a choice between:

George "Blind-Eye" Bush

or

John "We should be Europe" Kerry.


Sigh... Well, at least we can hope this topic hits a fevered pitch by 2008.

Think positive my man. Remeber how well our troops are doing in Iraq and A-Stan. Remeber that there hasn't been a major terrorist attack on US soil since 9/11. Remember that the Democratic party is all but toothless now, about all they can do is jingle the change in their pockets, rock on their heels while clucking their tongues, and ask each other in whiny voices about what is to be done with this GW Bush. This country is still advancing forward even in the face of mounting adversity. The people have chosen wisely given their options for President, the sky is still blue, and dohnuts are still plentiful.

Then again, maybe your current frustration is what gives you your edge in developing witty and insightful political commentary.

Keep 'em coming, and remember, it's not the T.V's fault. T.V is our friend.
Link Posted: 1/28/2006 7:05:57 PM EDT
President GW Bush just isn't good at reading speeches. He should keep it simple and tell people how things really are and how he really feels.

"You Democraps are dead in the water. We've got terrorists on the run. Anyone who gets in the USA's way is going to get run over. BTW, no more corporate taxes so all companies and the money behind them can move their operations to the USA. Thank you and God bless America."

thats why most people in this country have a little thing called cable.we dont have to watch if we dont want to.


if i looked at the tv thing right you wrong 3 hours it will be on certain channels.you got to remember the president speaks the n the democratic asshats have to say he is wrong then the republicans have their say.

i know i will be watching 1 of the following hbo,showtime,max,starz,or a ppv movie.

Correct me if I'm wrong Macallan, but aren't you one who has ardently defended Bush from people on this board (myself included) who are pissed about his refusal to veto pork spending and unwillingness to secure the border with Mexico?

I never defended GWBush on those issues.


I supported him on only three main issues: 1) Court nominees, 2) War, 3) Tax cuts/economy.

I worked hard for him to be re-elected and was REAL glad he won. But I'm still pissed as hell at the spending and lack of border security.

Here is my humble prediction:

4: Pause for joke......................
5: America is safer without Saddam Hussain in power.

Yeah I know that the whole time I will be thinking "Damn he is making government bigger" Aside from National Security issues I have grown very tired of GWB. He is a good guy and all but he has too much compassion with my money. He also needs to do something fast about the boarder the stuff that is going on is bullshit.
Link Posted: 1/31/2006 5:35:12 AM EDT
So just because Kerry would have been worse we are supposed to praise GW and say he is doing a great job? What a bunch of crap. Bush has turned into a weak pathetic President, I think I saw him on 24 last night! OK, he's not that bad but compared to his first couple years Bush has become pathetic and no amount of sugar coating it will change that. Since getting re-elected Bush hasn't done much of anything meanwhile gas/oil prices jumped up, the border still isn't secure, Iraq still isn't under control, N. Korea and Iran are thumbing their noses at us, his tax cut plan flopped, his social security reform flopped...ect. About the only thing Bush has pushed for is renewing and expanding the Patriot Act. I just wish the "cowboy" Bush would get back up on his horse and get things done for a change. Bush started going down hill when he got off his high horse and appologized for his aggressive ways and said he would be kinder and gentler when it came to dealing with others. I don't care how bad Kerry would have been...it still doesn't take away from how bad Bush is doing right now.

Interesting note:

Federal grant-in-aid programs GREW under Bush II and now comprise over 18% of the federal budget, as high as they were in the pre-Reagan era.

(During Reagan they were only about 11 or 12 percent...)

If 5,000 illegals crossed the border every hour, as you seem to be indicating (since the speech is only an hour long), that would be 43,800,000 illegals entering the US each year (365 days X 24 Hours X 5,000). If they were all coming from Mexico, the entire Mexican population of 103,000,000 would take less than 2.5 years to enter the US.

WOW, I never realized it was that bad...

I never said 5,000 per hour.

It's about 5-10,000 per day. I was referring to TODAY, not just the hour of his speech.

Now THAT is something that I'd want to see on TV!

As for the State of the Union address, I have not intentions of watching. Bush spend an hour telling us how good things are going, and then the Demonrats will take a few minutes to tell us that everything is going to collapse within the next few days. No one will be saying anything of substance, unless Bush announces half way through the speech that bombs just started falling on Iran.
