From where do Republicans get all this "confidence" from?

    I'm curious how Republicans are so confident.

    When challenged, none of the right wingers on the USMB could name a single conservative policy in the last 20 years that has done anything positive for America.

    When they point out "Iraq", we only have to show the enslaved women in Burkas and the articles from Iraqi women who said as awful as Saddam was for women, it's way worse now.

    They don't believe in building up America's infrastructure, unless it's building a pipeline to help send American money to a foreign country.

    They don't believe in education. It's too "liberal" and you could get "over educated".

    Their policies caused the financial meltdown.

    Thousands of Americans dead, tens of thousands maimed at a cost that will be in the trillions.

    Worse, they didn't pay for the Bush tax cuts, the two wars, or the "drugs for votes" bill, all of which created trillions and trillions in deficit. The Bush tax cuts and the "drugs for votes" bill were passed through that dreaded "reconciliation" they claim to hate so much.

    And all of their social policies they try to force on the country which would mean a huge expansion of government to enforce all those new policies. Perhaps even turning America into a "police state". Obama has cut government by a half million.

    Yet, in spite of all these disasters and terrible policies, they still have confidence they are right. You've got to give them kudos for that. How they look at disaster and see success I'll never know. But they do.

    Republicans get all their confidence from Obama's approval ratings, his nine wars, and the unemployment rate, asswipe.

    Do you need anything else?

    Nine wars?

    On the last day of Bush's last budget, the unemployment rate was 10.1%. How does that make Republicans confident?

    It all has to do with the fact that they think most Americans hold the exact same views and prejudices they do. They have bought the full course of history revision so everyone else must think all that also. It's also behind their belief that Obama somehow stole the election, no real American would have voted for him.

    On the last day of Bush's last budget, the unemployment rate was 10.1%.
