So ask yourselves this: If you had to pick someone to lead the GOP right now who would it be folks?Comment Posted By the Fly-Man On 21.02.2009 @ 11:12
What exactly did the responsible mortgage payers get from 12 Billion a month spending in Iraq? Where were you all to defend restrained spending for the last 8-years. I'd love to see the GOP, take Steven Colbert's suggestion, namely, just turn down all of the spending that is headed for their districts. Wouldn't that be the principled stance?Also why did the GOP use Acorn as a poster child for ultimate Liberal corruption, but when this bill came up they now need support for the white spend thrifts? My wife and I have never missed a mortgage payment in the last 18 years since we first owned our home and were offered an interest only loan when we moved to where we are in 05. We did our homework and said no thanks and couldn't be more pissed than anyone else is for being negatively rewarded for our prudent behavior. So why does the GOP insist on helping people who made bad decisions now, but were so ready to blame Fannie May and Freedie Mac and minorities for the debacle before this bill came into being?Again, if the GOP is soooo against it, give all of the funds back to the treasury.Comment Posted By the Fly-Man On 15.02.2009 @ 12:09
Maybe more folks would leave more "coherent" comments if you didn't spend half of your threads being vindictive. You know just get to the point without all of the acerbic spew. At least you don't wander off with your liberal bitch slapping in your reviews of 24. Also if you wouldn't retaliate against what you consider to be dolt individuals leaving comments, with your juvenile name calling, you might give people a reason to just read what you have to say about the majority of your topics,which seem reasonably well argued, instead of wondering who your patience has run out with lately. Sure you don't suffer fools well but sometimes you look like one in the process of rendering your wrath. Sincerely, Scott.Comment Posted By the Fly-Man On 2.02.2009 @ 06:39

Here some advice for folks getting a huge dose of Rick's ration of Wrath: "Sometimes when you argue with a fool it's hard for folks to tell who is really the fool."Comment Posted By the Fly-Man On 20.01.2009 @ 07:21
Look, Rick my name is Scott, your name calling is moronic. I just flat out don't buy the argument we can't have hearings, investigations or other wise real accountability sessions that hold our elected officials to task because of the fear that it might turn partisan.
Quote: "The fact of the matter is politicians are, well, politicians and asking them to forget that primary fact of their existence is absurd." So what?Dan Burton wasted tons of time and resources with over 1000 investigations why all of a sudden when the tables are turned it's now unnecessary because of its partisan nature? Those are my words. And see Rick I didn't have to resort to calling you a name like a little fifth grader would. Good Luck. Sincerely, Scott
All 1000 investigations by Burton collectively don't matter as much as the kind of investigations targeting the Bush Administration. Not to mention the enormous publicity that would surround these investigations. One need only look at the times Petreaus and Crocker were testifying to see what kind of a circus Congress makes of vital issues.
The problem is, you don't want investigations. You could care less about the truth. You want Bush and Cheney hung from the highest yardarm and the facts be damned. You are a perfect example of why a congressional investigation is out of hte question.
Obama, Durbin, and I believe the American people would reject any findings of a Congressional investigation. You gonna argue with us or are you going to accuse me again of wanting to sweep all this under the rug?

Oh Yes, Good Heavans! The rule of law most certainly can't be defended because of the partisan circus that might develop along the way. We are either a nation of laws or we have a King. The Bush administration and Dick Cheney specifically, knew that this black mail scenario would play out exactly like it has.
You are an hysterical nincompoop. And a partisan hack to boot. How does appointing a special prosecutor get them off the hook? And to believe that the Democrats wouldn't turn any hearings into a circus means that you have been asleep for the last 8 years (or don't have any brains - I tend toward the latter explanation for your stupidity). Only an idiot would accuse me of not wanting to see the laws of the land enforced. And only an ignorant slave to party wouldn't accept the fact that no one knows which, if any, laws were broken. Conyers himself admits that.
You know better than Conyers now? What a dolt.

The quality of the comments rises? You have got to be kidding. Oh yeah, it's definitely a renaissance over there for pedestrian conservative thoughts......Comment Posted By the Fly-Man On 9.01.2009 @ 07:22
Panetta is the anti- Cheney bromide beyond.I'd be curious to see how well Panetta gets along with Prince Bandar.Comment Posted By the Fly-Man On 7.01.2009 @ 08:15
Rick, your absolute over the top reaction to Glenn's post is exactly what he's writing about. For you it's a no brainer to unequivocally support Israel, Glenn is, once again doing what he does so immaculately, bringing to light the glaring split between the public's expressed interest and the leaders in BOTH political parties views towards Israel.Comment Posted By the Fly-Man On 3.01.2009 @ 09:54
As far as I'm concerned we treat Israel like John McCain did with Sarah Palin during their joint interview, pedantically and with arrogant paternalism. We need to let the Israelis do what is in their best national interest and let THEM accept the consequences, not us buffering all the criticism for them. Good luck with taking on Glenn.
