    I used to think that Republicans could at least do politics well.

    178 Republicans cast their votes against mothers! And they actually voted for motherhood before they voted against it! The GOP position on flags and apple pie remain unchanged.

    ARe these the same Republicans who railed against the Democrats when they wanted to Philly Buster? I believe they have bustered more since they lost control than the Dems did for the six years of Misanthrope's Reckless Rule.:cuckoo:

    Maybe, they are a bunch of muthers themselves.

    Once upon a time, wise men understood that the role of the federal government had nothing to do with mothers, puppies and flowers. Those were the province of families, homes and Mother Nature. The federal government's job was protecting the shores from attack, printing money and foreign policy. The job of the federal government, in fact, was to stay the hell away from domestic policy. Now that we've dissolved into this silliness, seemingly intractably, what's the end of it? Congress sponsors a resolution in favor of happiness and sunshine? And anyone who objects to that absurdity is against both? This is such a crystallization of the retardation of American politics, where government replaces God.

    Actually, I wouldn't be surprised to see a resolution declaring the federal government to be our true mother.

    I'm surprised ANYONE proposed, much less voted for such a useless piece of drivel. Almost as surprised as I'm NOT that someone would post this pointless garbage and try to politicize it.

    You do liberals more disservice with crap like this than ANY good. And here I thought you claimed (over and over) to be smarter than the average bear.:rolleyes:

    The point is that the GOP has become so obstructionist that even something like Mother's Day isn't safe: "Republicans, unhappy with the Democratic majority, have been using such procedural tactics as this all week to bring the House to a standstill, . . . "

    I never claimed to be smarter than everyone. Just you and a few others.

    Did you ever think that maybe they aren't obstructing the idea of Mother's Day, as much as they're obstructing the use of the United States Congress to spend time and money even DISCUSSING the issue, let alone actually proposing a resolution and coming to a complete vote?

    Mother's Day exists. It has for a long time now. Congress has no business wasting OUR time, and yes, their time is OURS, politicizing the idea of celebrating the role of Motherhood. We do just fine with that as citizens, in our own households.

    Our economy is in shambles, our foreign relations are disgusting, and you want congress to come to agreement on the issue of Mother's Day.

    Are you kidding me? I don't see anything about anyone threatening "Mother's Day." Let's be real ... Mother's Day is an invention of the greeting cards companies to suck more money out of people.

    Be that as it may, all I see is a vote against celebrating celebrating Mother's Day.

    And you can flap that partisan crap all you want, but Democrats did the exact same thing when they were in the minority and bet you agreed with them every time, so give your aching, superior intellect a rest.

    AFAIK, that Democrat Wilson put Mother's Day into effect. What a silly waste of time for the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT!

    President George Bush Sr was the last serious president we had... and that is not saying much.

    Look at the contenders since then:
    Slick Willy
    Viagra Dole
    George Bush Jr. (I need not say anything)
    Al "Carbon Credits Scam" Gore
    John Lurch "Reporting For Duty" Kerry
    the barely cognizant John "We Must Fight the ISLAMOFASCIST For 100 Years " McCain
    Rudy "When I Was Mayor on 9/11" G-man
    John "the Breck Girl" Edwards
    Mrs. Bill "Every Word Out Of My Mouth Is Decietful And Contemptable" Clinton
    and my personal favorite :rolleyes:
    The Messiah.


    You know, I think Raph Nader is the only person who hasn't made an ass out of himself.

    I'd take the list back as far as Nixon.

    You left out "Two Left Feet" Gerry

    "Watch me make a peace agreement and shake hands with this rattlesnake" Jimmy

    "Spend 'Em to Death" Ronnie (although I did like Reagan, but his economic policies weren't so hot)

    And the all-time, infamous "Read My Lips" George ...
