    They can gather lots of historical data about the climate and conclude that the either climate is not changing or mankind is not effecting the change.
    But they cannot remember the screw ups of their political leaders or their failed policies and conclude that something is amiss there.

    This type of thing is not limited to the right but does seem to be more widespread on that side of the aisle.

    Do you enjoy thinking your in the middle despite the fact that the middle is known for having NO CONVICTIONS?

    I respect the left for believing in their agenda full heartedly. I may not agree with them but at least they posess personal convictions.

    Kinda like not realizing that their democratic mayor, councilmen, and congressmen are the ones keeping them in the slums?

    You're absolutely right!

    Actually most of us "Right Wingers" have never denied the Climate is Changing, or that Humans have an effect on that change. We debate how much of an effect we have, and whether or not we should sign on to economically destructive Polices to attempt to lower emissions when it is not clear if it will really help or not. We favor a more Measured approach to lowering Emissions.
    You are talking about a Wide difference of Opinion about the Effectiveness of Polices. It's not that we don't remember, we just do not happen to agree.

    Horseshit.

    Liberals have given us plenty of Failed and or Failing Polices and almost Never admit to a mistake. I mean please.

    So now running up $12 trillion in debt, including interest, by Reagan, Bush I, and Bush II was "PRETTY DAMN GOOD." :eek:

    Reagan raised taxes, so did Bush and Clowntoon.
    Bush cut them and see where we are now?

    Of course cutting taxes was not the only factor in dragging us down but it accelerated the process esp when combined with 2 wars.

    Reagan raised the SS withholding too much and gave congress 2 trillion or so in surplus SS funds to waste.
    Reagan doubled the debt as well and we went from a creditor nation to a debtor one.

    Only right-wing nuts who have no principles say the middle has no convictions.

    We're constantly reminded of Republican administrations' faults. It's the Left's only talking points and a convenient scapegoat for their own fuck ups.
