My God, can we can the negativity??? (Vanity)

Posted on 10/03/2008 2:18:04 PM PDT by jeffo

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!

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.

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.

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.

“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.

Look, we are imperfect human beings and when something bad happens, we are ALLOWED to be upset, we are ALLOWED to cry. We are ALLOWED to grieve when our government steps through the door of socialism.

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.

She did NOT dodge every question. I don't know if we watched the same debate, but 1/4 - 1/3 the way through, Biden was getting the last word. Sarah obviously could NOT allow a lie to hang there, in the air, for all to see. She was fighting the system.

If you did not see that, then I question YOU!

I think we’re entitled to bitch a little.

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.
