This loss is going to have historical consequences how much is President Bush to blame for this loss? Is it too early to say that the blame for this loss rests squarely with President Bush and the Bushbots?
Bush? Or is it Bush and the RINOs? . . . And worst of all to blame, the fault of what some talk show hosts call the Harriet Myers Storm-trooper crowd of Bushbots who simply would bray like a donkey whenever conservatives brought up the obvious problems with Bush from illegal immigration, to port deals, to his globalist friends and massive spending?
Well, it isnt going to just be me saying that President Bush and the bots wasted too many years, they had the power and blew it.
Only in the last couple weeks did Bush start to try to get the message out about the good economy, but the fact is there were many conservatives who kept saying this is a winning message for a long time, if only the Republicans would get serious about getting the message out --- and the reply from the Bushbots was the DOW and the stock market isnt the same as the economy, ignoring that the important message about the economy wasnt just the stock market but much more.
The Republicans were on a dog and pony show with the Bushies, of which some now call the Bushbots, and years were wasted with what many now say were idiots who followed someone who never was a conservative anyway. The reality might just start to sink in that Bush just used some conservative lingo to take these idiots for a ride.
Yes, the President was on track regarding the war on terrorism and yes, he and everyone else were correct that this war wont be over in one or two years. The point being no, Bush didnt own the adage that this will not be a short war, but will be a long war, perhaps decades long and everyone who understood the enemy said the same, and were saying so before even Bush took office in 2000.
In fact, many of these conservatives were saying Usama bin Laden and the Islamic terrorists et all hit the Trade Center once and he was coming back to finish the job, but Bush was too busy running around with Vicente Fox talking amnesty to listen.
But dont worry, Bush will probably get his amnesty now. No, Im not talking about the amnesty for Iraqi insurgents who killed American soldiers (no amnesty for our soldiers being held for war crimes?), no I talking about amnesty for illegal aliens from Mexico. And one may as well say exactly what we are talking about here this isnt about amnesty for illegal aliens from Jamaica, nor Russians, and such its all about illegal aliens from Mexico, which once given will be irreversible, America will not be the same ever again and no one will be able to turn it around once done, because its done.
The best hope in stopping the Bush amnesty was a Republican victory in the House in 2006, but the Bushbots sunk it for us all and now with the Democrats running the show you are going to see an amnesty bill forwarded and Bush will sign it with a smile as a great example of bipartisan leadership.
The funding for the war in Iraq will likely now be cut off, a front in the battle on terrorism of which Bush wasnt fighting as a war against the terrorists anymore yes, let me say that President Bush has been doing a good job regarding the war on terrorism so lets just get that out there now - but, it seemed more like he was thinking the war on that particular front was over and he was building Democracy and sure didnt want to accidentally kill any Iraqi civilians in the process because it wouldnt look good in the New York Times and CNN.
Anyway, for sure the Democrats are going to have the leverage to screw us up on that one and cut and run not just in Iraq but everywhere. If and when the Democrats get there way, which they likely now will, what that tells the world, since Vietnam, and now Iraq which really was a punch drunk easy war as far as any war goes, the message to the world will now be that America can never win another war.
And that is really bad news since a lot of Americans are going to die as a result.
What that means is Iran now runs the region. And billions and billions and billions of dinars will sponsor further terrorism as they dance in the street having defeated the great Satan and the Islamic terrorist with a likely victory in Iraq will do exactly what they already said they are going to do: they will turn their attention to overthrowing the governments of Turkey, Egypt and Pakistan.
Pakistan already has the nuclear bomb.
The governments of Turkey, Egypt and Pakistan are next on the head-chopping list, of which the Islamic fundamentalists may likely have very good success on instigating the axe. Because, at least Bush did a good job on the war on terrorism, but you can absolutely count on it that if the Democrats are going to call the shots, the region is going to explode; the Islamic terrorist front will be global like no ones business.
The idiots have been saying the war on Iraq fomented more Islamic terrorists.
The fact is, the growth of Islamic terrorism is an historical trend of which was escalating before Iraq, was on the march and would have been as life-size now whether we invaded Iraq or not, in fact likely even more so if their march wasnt tripped up a bit in old Babylon.
We have a great economy.
But the economy wont be great after the terrorist hit us again. In fact, when it happens, dont be surprised how fast you are going to lose your job.
Democrats running the House. Now just watch the war. The war isnt over. Its now going to get bigger than ever.
Well, I guess some are saying, with the Dems running things, they take the blame for things, too. The problem with this is, the old media will still blame everything on Bush. So, unless the American people figure out that what is about to happen to America was the fault of the Democrats, then we are in big trouble.
But we were already in big trouble with this election. And a lot of Americans didnt understand the consequences now, and this will be the same crowd who wont understand later when everything blows up in our face.
I suppose some are thinking that all I have been doing is the same as the Democrats to simply blame Bush for everything.
No, I dont blame Bush for everything. I blame myself. Because, for some reason, I didnt get involved enough, involved with other conservatives to get the conservative message to Americans.
Thank you President Bush, you have had to deal with a lot of crap from the old media. As far as Im concerned, I consider them an enemy of Democracy.
In fact, I consider the Democratic Party an enemy of Democracy.
And, thank you President Bush, since 911 we, America, hasnt had another major terrorist attack on our soil. I give the President thanks for this. It has been a blessing.
I dont think this blessing is going to last much longer. Not after tonight.
How much was Reagan to blame for his midterm losses. Get over it. The Prez is the ONLY good thing about the GOP right now. Has been that way for some time.
Is it too early to say that the blame for this loss rests squarely with the Bush Haters, of which you are a member in good standing?
Anybody ever thought that it was a combination of all? Some folks better start thinking that rather than start hammering at each other and calling names.
Well, I think all those angry white liberals just threw a temper tantrum...
There are two groups to blame for this:
1) The corrupt bunch of schmucks that got too comfortable in office, not realizing that it's different for a corrupt republican than it is for a corrupt democrat.
2) The media. They pulled out all the stops this election and they beat us.
Profligate spending and growth of government = disaster for Republicans. Case closed.
The President will have to stand firm, get out his veto pen and be prepared to do battle with congress on a daily basis. They'll be relentless.
Bush is the best thing the Republican party has going for it. Don't quit yer day job expecting any election analysis offers to come in.
I blame the media coverage of the Iraq war.
Out of our 'own', I blame the 'teach them a lesson' crowd.
You have always been full of yourself and now I see you're full of sh!t too.
Who was it that kept saying they were going to sit it out to "punish" Bush and the Republicans? It certainly wasn't your so-called "Bushbots", an incredibly insulting name that implies that no one who thinks for themselves could possibly agree with the President. Any "conservatives" who sat on their hands this election have only themselves to blame for the Democrat victory.
were you around in 1982 or 1986?
And it's all because YOU and YOUR ILK wouldn't budge ONE INCH on ANY bill that didn't involve immediate deportation.
Don't try to blame this on Bush; you unappeasables always have believed it's your way or the highway; you never understood that after 40 years of liberals running the government, it was gonna take some time to get things back on the right road.
Now you're made your bed by continually trashing that man for six years.
The Democratic National Party thanks you for your work on their behalf?
This loss is to blame on only the republicans whom wanted to punish the gop by staying home or voting third party. I blame the conservatives that constantly slammed the gop because their pet project wwas not handled how the ywanted it, such as Michelle Malkin, Rich Lowery, Michael Savage, Bill Kristol, etc. They let us down and now we will have to deal with a Pelosi house and most likely a Reid senate. I hope you all have the extra money to spend on taxes now, I do not. Terrorism will flourish because the donks will cut off the spending for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistanm like they did Vietnam.
Show me the evidence that the Democrats (!) won tonight because Bush and the Republicans spend too much.
People tossed them out for overspending and put the Democrats in charge? Or are you going to say Republicans stayed away...except they didn't?
