Do you people who post these threads EVER look for another ONGOING thread to post this on?

Think we can get the Republicans to force a vote on whether or not the president "lied" about pre-war intelligence? I would love to see the Dems vote Yes on that and then get sued for libel.

Some people do not want to search through 7000 posts looking for the vote results.

Also not so brave when some of their buddies cut and run before the vote and leave them with their cheese hanging in the wind.

A new strategy is born tonight. The GOP can do this over and over again. Bring a resolution to the floor that precisely captures just what the moonbats want, and force the RATS to vote on it. There are DUers tonight who are angry at the RATS for voting no on the immediate withdrawal resolution. Wedge - divide and conquer. Flush the democRAT party like the waste it has become.

Were the 6 who voted present too stupid to figure out a vote is yea or nea? After all, if they voted we already know they are present.

It was about time to start a new one. Who wants to go through 7,000+ posts? Was it McDermott who just talked about getting the troops out of Iran or was it the guy before him?

"Present" is how one records a "No Vote" without appearing not to have been in congress for the vote. It's use as such goes back to the beginnings of Congress.

Le ZOTTE: My very IMPORTANT opinion on tonight's debate. VERY IMPORTANT BREAKING NEWS VANITY! MAYO

Posted on 09/30/2004 11:56:49 PM EDT by Jim Robinson
Edited on 09/30/2004 11:57:40 PM EDT by Jim Robinson. [history]

NO ONE ELSE THOUGHT OF THIS SO IT DESERVES A THREAD OF ITS OWN!

I think each and every poster on FR should post a new thread stating his opinion on the debate. This way, instead of having only a few threads with hundreds of posts each (ie, discussion threads), we will have hundreds of threads, each with two comments. One the important opinion, and two, the complaint about vanity posts.

If this was the Senate, we can all guess on how particular loser would vote:

"Yea."
"No, nay."

I doubt that.

Most people who use the forum for more than a day have been able to grasp the concept of going to the END of an ongoing thread and finding out what they need to know.

As you can see, I said "most."

I want to know who the 2 Republicans that had voted 'yea' before changing to 'nay' and who did the ass kicking to persuade these RINOs to change their vote...

That would be great! But the Dims would fight it all the way. IMHO they would start off with not wanting to be pinned down and say ''Well don't use the word lied, he misled us, then they would change that to ''he fooled us,'' then'' we got duped,'' then'' we were brainwashed,''then we didn't understand. I think the one that they're using now is he had ''different intelligence'' that he didn't show us, cause he's mean........

And you forgot the most important part: disparage the people who point out the error of their ways! They love doing that.

The media lies and misleads every day yet you never see the left complain about it. The media deliberately misled the public throught 2004 in order to try to sway the election for Kerry (the phony draft, phony poll numbers, and phony national guard memos among them).

Nevermind. I got this off the "big" thread:

The House voted 403-3 to reject a nonbinding resolution calling for an immediate troop withdrawal.

I am glad beyond words that our commanders do not base their decisions and analyses for the security of our nation and the world - primarily on a very few carefully-selected, sorrowful letters from (presumably) military relatives, some of whom were manifestly partisans of the same political party as Murtha.

Overall a sad piece of work by Rep. Murtha. It was telling that he was the only distinguished vet put forth by the Democrats tonight while the Republicans had distinguished vet after distinguished vet.
