I'm only asking if Americans believe these policies are good for the country.

    Unemployment benefits: not until Bush tax cuts pass, Senate GOP says - CSMonitor.com

    That's the Christian Science Monitor, not Huffington or Politico.

    Subpoena power in BP oil spill investigation blocked by Senate Republicans

    Senior Republican on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, with oversight over offshore drilling apologizes to BP!

    The Official Guide to Legitimate Rape

    GOP party platform sticks with "Akin Amendment", does not address rape exception - The Washington Post

    Missouri Republican candidate calls to halt federal school lunch program

    Republicans Block FEMA Funds For Disaster Relief

    Senate Republicans reject Obama call to end 'oil subsidies' - CNN.com

    Republicans for cutting aid to poor instead of oil subsidies

    Surrogates Admit Romney Will Cut Medicare Benefits For Current Seniors

    Romney Calls for Fewer Firemen, Policemen, Teachers - NYTimes.com

    I could go on and on. Science in education. Cutting Special Olympic funding. All kinds of things.

    I know some Republicans will say, "But, but, but the Democrats this and the Democrats that" and come up with some weird accusation. The Democrats don't want anyone to work or the Democrats are all socialist.

    But forget them for a minute. Look at Republican Policies. Are these the policies that represent the GOP? Well, we know they are so let me rephrase that. Why would these policies be good for the country? Defend them. Sell them to us so we can understand how they are good. That's all I ever asked.

    In all seriousness, the R does not care what is right or good for the United States. If they did, they would not have worked so damn hard to stop jobs or economic improvement. All they care about is getting the black guy out of the Lincoln bedroom.

    If the R had not held the country hostage for almost 4 years, we'd be in pretty good shape. Yes, its true that it will a couple of generations to recoup the enormous Reagan/Bush debt but we had a good track on jobs and housing - but the R simply would not allow it.

    Bastards. They should be brought up on charges but instead, they're still plotting the demise of their own country. This time they have the help of a jerk who has always invested in other countries - but never his own.

    That never happens on this board. All we ever get from the rw's is name calling and insults.

    Reason is simple - they can't sell it because they know its what got us here in the first place.

    For the gazillion time -

    The Current ReaganBush Debt is:
    $15,051,839,812,702.80
    which means that in a total of 20 years,
    these three presidents have led to the creation of
    94.15%
    of the entire national debt
    in only 8.4746% of the 236 years of the existence of the United States of America.

    But yet Obama can spend 6 trillion dollars more into debt in 4 years. Man, o, man do you people spin.

    The teachers, firemen, police are all local state and city, ect. If the aid is American then it shouldn't be cut, but outside of our country. What's it to the rest of the world?

    The truth is that with voter suppression and undermining democracy and America's laziness when it comes to the vote and the right wings propensity for self flagellation, there is a very good chance Romney will become our president. We know these to be his positions. Otherwise, he wouldn't say them. But are these what right wingers really support? They insist they are patriotic so they must believe these positions and policies will be good for the country, but I don't see how. I'm just asking them to explain and STOP denying. The denial is getting old. Their leaders say one thing and they insist their leaders were "misquoted". Again and again. It's happened too many times for even them to say that one more time. Instead, please defend the policies that you will inflict on the country. Is that so much to ask?

    You know that's not true:

    Federal Grants for Police Departments

    Do I have to post more?

    Instead, please explain why you support these policies and positions. Stop deflecting. What is the GOP selling to the country?

    Perennially unhappy USMB posters rDerp and Luddite. TM would make it aTri-Fecta of Downers!

    Obama signed NDAA.
    Obama reauthorized Patriot Act.
    Obama signed another Free Trade agreement to send the last of our jobs overseas.
    Obama (Peace Prize Winner) kept troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Wants to bomb Syria.
    Head of UN Security Council (Impeachable Offense)
    Said our Military is run by the UN (Impeachable Offense)
    Runs Fast and Furious out of his Justice Department.

    Said himself if Unemployment stayed above 8% that he doesn't deserve re-election.

    But you guys love him anyway right? Must be that Cult of Personality thing like they have in N. Korea or Stockholm Syndrome.

    Your Dear Reader!
