    “Republicans and Democrats both love America."
    -Mitt Romney




    Do those guys REALLY love America like I love America? :dunno:

    :eusa_think: Is that even possible?




    What say you... do Republicans and Democrats both love America, or is Romney full of crap?


    Ad watch: Mitt Romney touts bipartisanship

    I love America....Loving your country and trying to make it better are not exclusive of one another.

    Of course they do. Stop being a Drama Queen. The Vast Majority of them all do. Just because we do not disagree with someones ideas, does not mean we have to question their love for this country.

    They are professional politicians with an drive to be head honcho. The love america stuff is secondary to their primal drive for power.

    Off the top of my head I know no one who does not love America...or at least their slice of it. Election year madness is something else, but I highly doubt either party "loves" the nation less. Most simply have their own idea of what America ought to be. It's what we settle for America becoming that matters most in my opinion. For a politician aglow in the national limelight...I think getting elected is the first priority; what happens next is a sail on the horizon.

    :eusa_eh: Sometimes I like being a Drama Queen.



    And of all the things I've heard folks called for their political point of view around here, Drama Queen is among the most benign. Almost CDZ material.



    This is kind of the point. If USMB threw a real party in a real Tavern in real life, would fisticuffs be inevitable?

    Honestly..... I wouldn't take either side of that bet. :eusa_hand:



    Watching t.v. in Florida leaves me wondering if a majority of republicans believe that folks who identify themselves as democrats hate America and despise freedom, and a majority of democrats believe that folks who identify themselves as republicans are selfish, greedy, and not to be trusted with public resources.

    The PAC ads here are MISERABLE on both sides.

    im of the like mind that these ads are miserable because thats what the people want. when i see honest people run for office and they dont get votes and i hear because people want the professioal politician or they want the guy who they think knows what they are doing regardless of information, and other dumb reasons, makes me believe this is what the people want. and the informed people start to walk away.
