Dear Lord, can we cut the negative crap around here? If our conservative ideology has taught us anything its that you and I, the private sector people, can withstand and fix anything in our economy. We (or our fathers/grandfathers) beat the depression, Hitler, scandal, Malaise, Carter, Clinton, Soros (oh yes, George, some of us see your hand trying to slap Adam Smith's away from time to time) and by God the free market will even be able to fix this mess and the bigger messes the bailout may cause. That is, unless we bury our heads in the sand and cry woe is us, this time the problem is too big.
I'm sorry, but thats not how we do things. That 777 point thud we heard the other day was a lot of the cowards leaving the market and good riddance to them. Unreasoned panic is the only thing that can make this a truly cataclysmic event, and unfortunately its in huge supply here on FR!
Noob. Welcome to FR.
Did you happen to see Nancy and Barney’s little speech after the vote today? You might want to be concerned.
No. Palin gave a very weak performance last night, and that combined with McCain’s bailout sellout vote leaves us conservatives with very little to be happy about.
I will still vote for McCain, but purely as an anti-Obama vote. I am not enthused about anything the Republican Party is doing.
Are you a catherder?...
My God, can we can the useless vanities???
Can we can the vanities?
What the hell is wrong with you ?
ou and I, the private sector people, can withstand and fix anything in our economy
not if the govt takes it over
Yes we can!
Nov 97? Lol. Newbie? Lol.
There has been a lot of (non-Troll) whining and hand-wringing. It’s disappointing to see from conservatives. We are better than that.
Yes, they managed to fail to touch on any aspect of reality whatsoever. When you actually know what is going on, it’s tough to understand how anyone could watch them and like what they were seeing.
Was that an attempt at sarcasm? He's been here longer than you!
what? he was here before you!
What the hell is wrong with YOU?
Palin dodged almost every question that was given to her. She spoke in generalities. Biden mopped the floor with her when it came to facts and details (which might be proved false eventually, but the public won’t hear that ‘retraction’).
I remain very disappointed.
No. Palin gave a very weak performance last night
only if you’re really Alan Colmes
You need to get your eyes and ears checked. Maybe your brain too.
ummm you don’t win debates with facts and details. just ask Al gore
Can we can the cluelessness regarding obvious jokes?
I would expect to hear such personal attacks emanate from the left, not the right. You are a discredit to conservatism.
You remain in a teensy-weensy minority here, I’ve grown tiresome of clicking on your name, I’ve clicked on your name numerous times now because of your negativity.
Seattle is very depressing and if I recall the suicide capitol of America, I suggest you move.
Did you ever watch Ronald Reagan ? he was not a details guy either.
“Did you ever watch Ronald Reagan ? he was not a details guy either.”
That’s not the point. Palin was heavily criticized for not being ready for the job. She needed to come out swinging last night and have the proof that she was ready for the job. She did neither. She should have ripped Biden’s head off, but she was too meek.
Class of 98 joke on the oldtimers. :)
[With apologies to Carly Simon and credit to Revolting Cat!]
Love thy neighbor..
It’s only negative because (rightly so)..peole have become so enraged with the irresponibility of their supposedly “elected represenatives” (Over half don’t represent the American people anymore)!
A lot of us have been fighting this for quite some time, a heck of a lot of passioned phone calls, letters, faxes and emails. WE ARE VERY DISAPPOINTED IN OUR GOVERNMENT.
WE ARE ALLOWED TIME TO GRIEVE AND THROW OURSELVES AROUND....before we come back to our senses to fight it. It's a process. Please no lectures.
See my tagline...
I looked at your previous posts, and they’re nothing but whining about Palin. Someone here isn’t a credit to conservatism, but I don’t think it’s me.
Go back to CNN
If you did not see that, then I question YOU!
Says the little troll.......
“Dear Lord, can we cut the negative crap around here?”
Earth to Jeff, we’re getting our asses handed to us. We’re facing a future of bankruptcy, battling Obamachev’s Red Guards and having to pay for sattelite to get Rush.
I think we’re entitled to bitch a little.
So let's put on a happy face..............
We wouldn't want to ruin Barney's day.
Free Republic has become the home of the bitter disgruntles.
Those are, by the way, much worse than the bitter clingers.
Really, They won’t shut up, They never say anything informative or helpful, They just manage to annoy and depress the rest of us.
I know They don’t care, but I come here far less often since They’ve taken over.
Palin is the only one sparking any optimism among conservatives so give it up. She did so well even the Libs are having trouble denying it.
To the Op: No.
We just got screwed by our representatives in D.C. and we have Mccain as a presidential nominee with Obama on the other side. These circumstances do not lend themselves to optimism.
Can I be optimistic that in the future we can overcome the corrupt political class? Certainly. And I still do have optimism about the future. The problem is that I have no optimism about the next 2-4 years so that tends to lead me to be a little moody until circumstances give me reason to be otherwise.
You can’t be for a conservative ideology and be for the Socialist Bailout that just occured.
The are logical opposites.
Palin did great last night... Maybe others like her will stand up and run for office.... America is tired of Washington politics... Our forefathers gave us a system where anyone can be the best they can be.... Right now Palin fits that bill...
“Noli nothis permittere te terere.” which translates as “Do not let the bastards wear you down”.
Yahoooo! You hit the nail on the head...LET THE WHINNING STOP!
So many uf us have our underwear in a knot....where is HOPE!
Where is the CAN-DO attitude?
McCain/Palin will WIN this election...we have our EYE on Congress and we’ll find the crooks and make them pay!
Kool-Aid must be on sale where you live.
LOL. So you prefer to be lied to. That's just creepy.
