My liberal friends were right.
I have to admit it. My liberal friends were right. They told me if I voted for McCain, the nation's Hope would deteriorate, and sure enough there has been a 20 point drop in the Consumer Confidence Index since the election, reaching a lower point than any time during the Bush administration.
They told me if I voted for McCain, the US would become more deeply embroiled in the Middle East, and sure enough tens of thousands of additional troops are scheduled to be deployed into Afghanistan.
They told me if I voted for McCain, that the economy would get worse and sure enough unemployment is approaching 8.8% and the new stimulus packages implemented recently have sent the stock market lower than at any time since 9-11.
They told me if I voted for McCain, we would see more "crooks" in high ranking positions in Federal government and sure enough, several recent cabinet nominees and Senate appointments revealed resumes of bribery and tax fraud.
Well I ignored my Democrat friends in November and voted for McCain. And they were right... all of their predictions have come true.
I ignored relatives that I previously thought had a functioning brain.
What did they tell you 0 would do?
LOL - That’s funny.
I'm looking forward to someone talking about Obama so that I can say,
“Yeah, how do you like George Bush's third term...on steroids?”
LOL!!!! That’s a good one!
LOL - good one!
That’s why I voted 3rd Party. :-p
Art Buchwald did a column like that about LBJ after he escalated the war in Vietnam. “It’s a good thing we didn’t elect Goldwater. We’d be bombing North Vietnam...” When I repeated it to a Democrat friend of mine, he nodded and said, “Yeah, he’s right. It’s a good thing we didn’t elect Goldwater or all that bad stuff would be happening.”
People believe what they want to believe, and they refuse to be confused by contrary facts.
Obama admitted himself that he was the change [ ie: the only change was the OCCUPANT in the White House ] inferring that all the other talk of change was jut campaign rhetoric.
I am not sure Afghanistan is in the middle east.
They just called me a racist.
This is a great post - one of the best ever. You’re a GD genius! You are going to be president some day but then again, you may be too valuable to be president. Good job!
They just called me a racist.
I smiled. I laughed. I chuckled. Then I asked myself
“JUST WHAT IN THE HELL ARE YOU LAUGHING ABOUT. THIS IS NOT FUNNY.”
Then I shut down my computer and gave up for the day.
But you ARE correct. As my hero BUGS BUNNY often was heard to say, “IT IS TO LAUGH”
