    Isn't it great that the goose-stepping era is past?

    I'm sure the Republicans will enjoy this even more than you will.

    Is it me... or does it seem like the more we see of Obama as a leader.. the more he sounds like...

    "I will love him and squeeze him and call him George"

    That's debateable. The one thing that I always like about Dems is that they don't fall into line and are apt to question their president.

    :cool:

    The graveyards are populated by departed people who once thought themselves irreplacable, too.

    They were wrong, and these CEOs are wrong, too.

    If these fucking idiots were so smart why are their banks in trouble?

    Hang the lot of them the ungrateful bastards.

    I'm happy to hear you've found one thing you can like about the Democrats. I wonder how well President Obama will like it. I know the Republicans are going to love it.

    Perhaps you and your Republican friends can form a club to support these Congressional Democrats who are telling the President he is not really in charge since you all think it's such a great thing for them to do.

    Are you one of these people that think the executive branch is all powerful?
