I have a minute, so here goes:
Republican history written by "History":
from surplus to 1.4 trillion deficit.
Incorrect. The largest deficits have been under Dem control.
tax cuts during war time.
So? It stimulated the economy and as a result, revenue went up, not down.
war budget not in national budget.
Both parties are guilty of that.
war spending OK but not healthcare.
One is mandated by the Constitution. The other is socialism.
US reputation destroyed.
social programs cut.
Hmm...which ones? You mean like the Medicare Prescription Drug benefit?
are against census.
gay and straight sex scandals abound.
For both parties.
Still no birth certificate, though. hmmm?
global warming deniers.
Why would one not deny it? It doesn't exist.
crumbling infra structure.
You mean "infrastructure." Be specific. We spend billions every year.
want to keep status quo.
Like a free market economy? Imagine that.
voted against any and all social programs like Medicare and social security.
closed mental institutions (were most republicans should be under Reagan.)
This is a new one. Link?
Wow...everything? That's a lot!
for bank bailout but against stimulus.
As it should be. The President was told the economy would utterly collapse without a bailout. The stimulus is a steaming pile.
sent tax refund checks we could not afford.
So we couldn't afford $150 billion, but we can afford healthcare and stimulus totaling $2 trillion. Righto.
want to use the word terrorism more.
Better than not using it at all...even AFTER we're attacked on your watch.
are against ending wars.
False. Against defeat and retreat.
financial melt down.
Show which Republican policies caused those. Go ahead. Maybe you should look up this little thing called the Community Reinvestment Act.
record trade deficits.
Have they gotten better since the Dems took over, or worse? Hmmm.
Only an idiot would oppose this.
hand holding with Saudis.
Bowing to Saudis.
Both of which Obama refuses to fight...OR end.
Gitmo Illinois. Or Iowa...or wherever they are going to put it.
Terrorists released to Yemen.
Terrorists released to Bermuda.
exposure of undercover agents.
They were not "undercover agents." My lord.
no care for 911 rescuers.
Yeah...no care. What heartless bastards.
Please name the policies responsible.
no job gains for 10 years.
Bush helped create million of jobs. Look it up. Look at average unemployment during the decade.
Both necessary to protect the country...something the current administration apparently is not that concerned about. See, they are just "isolated extremists."
Fantastic stuff to run on, it will especially bring a lot of young voters to the GOP. Dems should just give up and bow out of all the races.
Please name the crowning Republican achievement of the 21st century.
Some of those are Republican issues, and many of those plague both [/quote]
I don't think there is a "crowing achievement" for either party. Of course, the Bush Tax cuts did stimulate the economy. The country was not attacked for 7 years. Millions of jobs were created. Unemployment was low. Deficits were at least manageable. Can Obama match that record?
