    Sometimes you just have to admire Pat Buchanan

    The American Conservative » The Toyota Republicans

    So the next time a neo nut tells me that the economy is not the Republicans fault I can tell them:

    a. fuck off
    b. Republican globalists gave U.S. manufacturers every incentive to go abroad and take their jobs with them, the jobs of Middle America.
    c. both a & b

    That's good bobo--It's important to have someone to blame for all your problems. It makes life so much easier.

    Too often Pat Buchanan sounds like someone from the wrong century.

    Who do you blame for your 401K getting cut in half?

    What did you do to cause your home value to go down?

    Whose fault is it that Republicans lost so many seats?

    Answer me those 3 questions please.

    Apparently the GOP is okay with using taxpayer dollars to offer subsidy's for the foreign automakers.. Free market hypocrisy?

    To my knowledge Republicans didn't force Detroit to produce shittly little cars that fall apart before you can pay for them. To my knowledge Republicans didn't force the labor unions to strike deals to increase salaries and benefits to the point it adds two or three thousand dollars to the price of a car. Nope, to my knowledge Republicans did not make Detroit uncompetitive in the global market. Nope. Unions and Detroit did this all by themselves.. they just like to blame Republicans cause then they have someone to hate on. Kerry On!

    I'll still buy Toyota every single time.

    In 1999 Toyota and GM had the same balance sheets. Toyota invested in the Prius engine and GM invested in the hummer! Bummer!

    Sealy, the DEMOCRAPS IN POWER are no less responsbile from FREE TRADE than the Republicans.

    In fact it was the REPUBLICANS who held out the longest in opposition to that foolish anti-American policy.

    But when the Republican LEADERSHIp signed onto FREE TRADE, they did it with zeal bordering on nation-busting insanity.

    AS to the bailout of the banks?

    ALSO a BIPARTISAN decision.

    You folks might as well face it.

    The people in control of both parties are in bed together.

    Pat Buchanan is as out of favor with the insiders of the Republican Party as Dennis Kucinich is out of step with the insiders of the Democratic party, folks.

    Why?

    Because they are essantially both saying the same damned things, that's why.
