“If Hillary is elected president, we’ll have a four-year disaster, with Republicans ferociously opposing her, followed by Republicans zooming back into power, as we did in 1980 and 1994, and 2000. (I also predict more Oval Office incidents with female interns.)
“If McCain is elected president, we’ll have a four-year disaster, with the Republicans in Congress co-opted by “our” president, followed by 30 years of Democratic rule.”
I think the same argument applies to Obamessiah as well, but I’m not convinced that Republicans will oppose him quite as ferociously.”
I don’t buy this at all. If McCain wins, we’ll have a split government that will not accomplish much - possibly the ideal outcome given the ideologies of the major players, and given the alternatives.
If Obama/Clinton wins, we’ll have a unified Dem government that could very well do as much damage in four years as would have been done in the average twenty years. ESPECIALLY including SCOTUS nominees.
So, as I said originally, it is just simply wrongheaded thinking to decide that it’s “OK” if the Dems win this time. It’s not!
Ooops, forgot on the last post...
McCain ‘08! HE SUCKS LESS!
