Election may transform Bush presidency
The State/WP ^ | Oct. 22, 2006 | WP

Posted on 10/22/2006 12:32:00 AM PDT by FairOpinion

If Democrats win one or both houses of Congress on Nov. 7, the result will transform the remainder of Bush’s time in office and dramatically shift the balance of power in Washington. Ending a dozen years basically passed in exile, congressional Democrats would have a chance to help steer the nation again — after a campaign spent mostly assailing Bush’s vision rather than detailing their own.

Emboldened by victory and bitter from grievance, Democrats could use their ascendance to block Bush’s agenda, force him to respond to theirs and begin a new era of aggressive oversight and investigation.

A Democratic victory, analysts in both parties said, could mean some of Bush’s tax cuts would not be renewed, attempts to revive his Social Security investment plan would be doomed and efforts to further broaden national security powers in the face of civil liberties concerns would be thwarted.

Most worrisome to the White House is the subpoena power Democrats would gain with a majority in the House or Senate. For years, Republicans have been mostly deferential in scrutinizing the Bush administration, but Democrats are eager to re-examine an array of issues, such as Vice President Dick Cheney’s energy task force, the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal and preparations for the Iraq war.

THIS is what's at stake, not to mention the War on Terror.

I hope after reading the above you will all decide that this election is too important to sit out or engage in protest vote, helping the Dems take control of the country.

VOTE and VOTE Republican!

PS. Those of you unhappy that the Republicans didn't enact a more conservative agenda, just remember the reason for it: DEM OBSTRUCTION.

Don't reward the Dems for their obstruction of the conservative agenda, by putting them in power.

You know you can over do it. There is a perverse curiosity to see what comes of chaos.

You are sounding a little like a someone who makes their living from this, rather than just a passionate conservative.

You need to acknowledge that it hasn't just/only been due to DemRat obstruction. With a majority in both houses, the Reps 'should' have been able to get things done and passed. It's been the RINOs that have hampered our conservative efforts all along. And those RINOs should be voted OUT of office. And in my opinion, McCain should be the first one to go. He's like the proverbial chatty cathy doll. Push his button and you never know which of his 10-11 standard phrases, ranging from Bush-bashing to Bush-praising, he's going to blurt out.

Dummycrat behavior is no excuse for the GOP becoming fat, lazy and taking it for granted that people will continue to support them. Let's face it, the 'Rats can't do much more damage to the Republicans than what the Republicans have already done to themselves.

I oculdn't agree with you more. But if we didn't have the RINOs, we wouldn't have control. We need MORE Republicans, to have decisive control, THEN we can pick off the RINOs, but to replace them now with Dems is really cutting off our nose to spite our face. Or to use another analogy, being angry that we have the flu, we vote ourselves a full fledged life threatening pneumonia, to punish our body for having been weak and caught the flu.

The trouble is, you and I see McCain as a national figure that we should get rid of, but if I remember right his numbers as a senator in Arizona are huge, sometimes we forget that a McCain or a Hillary can only be removed by their local voters, and in both cases the voters love them.

And what does a "passionate conservative" sound like? Do you consider those ""passionate conservatives", who advocate the conservatives punish the Republicans, by staying home or voting third party, and by doing this, implement the Dem strategy and help the Dems win?

This is how the Dems scuttled President Bush's social security reform -- it was them, not the Republicans.

"Acting on advice from marketing gurus after the 2004 presidential election, Pelosi ordered her ranks to assail the Bush privatization plan while offering nothing of their own that the Republicans could counterassault. Week after week impatient Democrats asked, "When can we propose a plan?" and week after week she intoned, "Never."


Madam Speaker? Pelosi Likes the Sound

This is beyond absurd! They are almost talking of victory in the past tense. Go ahead Dems, have your frenzied orgasms while you still can.

No, I mean that I thought you were a passionate conservative, I always agreed with you and strongly supported voting republican and voting for Arnold, but your relentless and patronizing posts, this close to the election are a turn off.

You sound a little like a professional rather than just a guy who is promoting a point of view that I agree with.

You can encourage us but you are starting to sound a little patronizing, and you seem unduly focused on Arnold Schwarzenegger who I support, but you almost seem to work forhim.

Oh, well, you see, this is how it works.. If Democrats are in power, the Republicans have to do what they want. If Republicans are in power, they have to do what Democrats want.

Whoopie. Same thing, different day. THAT should be explanation enough why Democrats should never be let back into power again - they never learn to work with others.

"relentless and patronizing posts,"


Actually I consider the posts of those who still trying to get conservatives to sit out the election or vote third party that way, AND frustrating and annoying.

Why should you take offense, since you are not one of "them" and you see plenty of those posts as well.

I merely point out that people need to look at the big picture, the real consequences of their actions -- which may result in a disastrous Dem takeover of Congress.

Although the current crop of Republicans in both houses are probably the most worthless in the history of the republican party, I agree. The RATS have to be stopped.

I've made my calls and sent my emails to various memebers of congress, RNC and various other GOP groups letting them know conservatives aint happy!.....and I will again after the election. Some of the FR on our local board are so mad at the GOP/Bush they have even threatened to vote straight RAT or stay home.

I don't blame them a bit but I cannot just sit by and do nothing.

If the Republicans in congress do not grow a spine 08 will be a disaster conservative voters will not give them a second chance.

"Although the current crop of Republicans in both houses are probably the most worthless in the history of the republican party, I agree. The RATS have to be stopped. "


And I agree with YOUR general assessment.


As for those, claiming to be conservatives, but advocating staying home or voting RAT, I would take their credential with more than a few grains of salt.

"This effort targets grassroots conservatives known for their passionate views about issues who may be open to a grassroots voting rebellion. But the effort is being led, or at the very least aided, by liberals pretending to be grassroots conservatives, as opposed to actual grassroots conservatives themselves.

But the pretend-conservative act is being carried onto a whole new playing field, one that has become wildly influential over the past few years and one that does not stand to be instantly recognized as a fake. That playing field is the blogosphere, which is then used in conjunction with massive e-mailings to “spread the word” (as one e-mailer insisted I do to my readers/e-mail list) to other conservatives.

The concept is the same: the blog or e-mail claims, first, that the said writer has been a conservative for years and that they have “had it with Republicans.” They then point to an issue that conservatives would likely be upset about such as excessive spending, immigration, or the expansion of government. Their supposed rage over the issue has convinced them to either not show up to vote in 2006, or, in order to really show Republicans, vote for the Democrat instead. "

I will let you in on a little secret of life. Just when you think that things cannot get worse, sure enough they will.

As a military family, we are not willing to let that happen by sending a message to the Republicans in this election.
There is way to much at stake to take that chance.

Reasons to vote Republican:

Pelosi-nomics
(Many thanks to my friend Dan Clifton over at the American Shareholders Association for painting such a clear economic picture here...)

“None of these tax cuts is affordable. None of them creates jobs, and they are not fair. All of them do damage to our long-term economic growth and contribute to the national deficit.” -House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA); May 09, 2003

Fact: 6.6 Million New Jobs

Fact: Unemployment Rate Drops From 6.3 Percent to 4.6 Percent

Fact: Unemployment Rate Dropping Faster Than CBO Expected

Fact: GDP Soars Following Tax Cut

Fact: Total Household Net Worth Has Increased by $14.4 Trillion Since the Tax Cut

Fact: The Deficit Has Declined $208 Billion Since April 2004 and $60 Billion Since the Tax Cut Was Signed Into Law


Ladies and gentlemen, it is still the greatest story never told...

Oh for sure. I am in no way saying that anyone should vote for a DemRat instead of a RINO, given only those two choices. But re: RINOs, I prefer to get them ALL out of office. But one step at a time. First priority, keep the DemRats out of power. Second, weed out the remaining RINOs.

I'm not forgetting that. And in many cases, the voters that vote for the Maverick McCains and other RINOs are made up of a lot of ""moderate"" liberals. Liberals that applaud McCain when he bashes Bush and curse him when he agrees with Bush. But one sure fire go-by I've always had is....if the liberals love someone, they're NOT a Republican, much less a conservative.

Here's the same old broken record: talk about the 'Rats winning both houses. The article you posted comes from the WaPo service without any author name attached to it. Well, judging from the source and the fact that no individual is willing to put his/her name on it, I wouldn't take this a serious prognostication. In fact, even Zogby (who has a history of erring in favor of the Dems) now projects a GOP majority in the Senate of 54 seats - a net loss of one.

The article talks about Congressional Democrats "ending a dozen years basically passed in exile."

Well, well. The quantity and quality of publicity they constantly receive from the MSM has been extraordinary for "exiles."

More importantly, calling them "exiles" subtly implies that the Dems have some perpetual right to control of Congress that has been taken from them and they are prepared to return to their proper place. What arrogance!

If Democrats win one or both houses of Congress on Nov. 7...

If.

If.

If a frog had wings, he wouldn't bump his ass when he jumped.

The democrap party would do well to remember that.

They may drown in their own salivation.

That bug-eyed, slack-jawed, botox-abusing Pelosi thinks she has the Majority sewn up, but I don't see it.

Even the disgruntled RINOs that are most likely to flee the Grand Old Party ain't too happy to see her pre-machinations regarding that position.

They'll hold their noses and vote Republican, then stand there and expect a pat on the back for it.

But the bottom line is: we will prevail.

No "ifs" to it.

If Democrats win one or both houses of Congress on Nov. 7, the result will transform the remainder of Bush’s time in office and dramatically shift the balance of power in Washington.

They are writing to children. No wonder we are in trouble.

That's like killing yourself to upset your ex-girlfriend.

People do that too -- not many, thankfully, but it's not unheard of.

Y'all need to remember the last time the rightwing sat out in protest of the GOP: rightwingers voted for that LOOZA Perot, which ended up giving us comrade clintoon for 8 long years.

Don't be complacent and don't let these anti-American scumbag socialist freaks win!
