    You guys want to stop a measure to save our economy but love spending it on Nation Building in Iraq--with tax cuts!

    All of a sudden Conservatives are finding borrowing and spending is bad? Ummm...where did this backbone come from?

    Perhaps they see a partisan advantage in it, no matter the costs to the country?


    Ummm....maybe

    Not in Iraq it won't. We have wasted more there than this bailout will cost.

    If Bush wanted to get Conservatives to join in on this he should have promised to blow some place up for them and kill a few thousand people. Bad politics for him

    You're right, we should use their oil money istead of letting them keep an budget surplus.

    You'd think we'd learn our lesson after Germany and Japan.

    In one thread you bandy about Nazi imagery to avoid debate.

    In another thread you speak warmly of Stalinist Cuba.

    How telling.

    The Iraq war was partisan. That doesn't make it right. Take the high road this time and demand that the politicians stop spending our money. You know it's the right thing to do.
