    John Boehner was on the teevee giving passing credit to Obama for the death of bin laden while he said that Bush deserves the most credit. Imo, he would never, ever have given any credit to Clinton if Bush got bin laden and in fact I believe he would have claimed Bush got bin laden despite Clinton.


    That is all.

    the funny thing is that some pundits (and my husband) say that this is a tactical strength of the GOP - that their strategy is more effective than the Kumbaya strategy of democrats - by saying that they are the ONLY ones that make this country better. Ever.

    But it isn't true and never has been.

    Sometimes I think Republicans care more about talking points than they do about the truth. One day maybe the conservatives will come back. :doubt:

    It's true for the people around here - they buy into the creationism, Obama is a muslim terrorist, the republicans will build the economy - they vote against their interests and spook at their own shadows, with Meg/Carly signs in their lawns as their homes go into foreclosure.....

    I believe that Both Obama and Bush should get credit for this to have happened.
    Clinton had his chances at the trophy, and blinked. Clinton dismantled our intel, and one could say that it's taken 15 years to get it back to where it became effective again. But, I'm sure there will be those on the left that think I'm just a rightwing nut.
