That's the general theme of a stalemate, isn't it? Everyone wins, except the idiots who toe the party line.

But that's alright, stay in denial, toe the line, and keep up with the name calling and personal attacks -- it's your signature move.
You are wrong. No president in the history of our nation has faced the litany of disasters--natural and man-made--that Bush has. All of which required spending beyond anyones imagination. He inherited a recession, terrorists attacked on 9/11 and we declared war on terrorism, we went to war w/ Afghanistan and Iraq, we went through Enron and a host of other international corporate disasters, Katrina nearly destroyed a third of our country, etc., etc., etc... Serious spending was required to deal w/ all of them, but that spending--along w/ the President's tax cuts--created the most dynamic and robust economy in our history. What little deficit we had will be gone before President Bush leaves office. As I'm sure you know, President Bush submitted a balanced budget to Congress every year he has been in office!

I repeat: President Bush is NOT "about big government and big spending," and you know it! Quit making a fool of yourself.

So they are the authors of legislation when they hold the minority? My, my, I have to throw my civics textbook away. And that President, of course, he didn't veto any of those bills because his pen was out of ink, and a giant squid just swam up the pope's ass.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

You are a fool if you think that. You fascists have exaggerated everything to frighten us so you could steal our rights and invade countries like Hitler. Disaster wise, this stuff ain't shit compared to what Lincoln or FDR had to face. In fact, most of the death toll under Bush has been people he himself murdered, the Nazi piece of a fucked pig's ass. We had moral leadership under those two men and comparing Bush to them is like comparing Pol Pot to Christ, whose probably saving a nice spot in Hell for him.

I repeat: President Bush submitted a balanced budget to Congress every year. If he vetoed the appropriation bill, which runs the government, he would have to shut the government down, including military spending, education spending, etc. He had no way of vetoing part of government appropriations, so it was all or none! You really should have read those civics textbooks you threw away. You and that lame star-guy might not look so dumb.

I repeat: You really should have read those civics textbooks, and, it appears, the Bible too. Calling me a fascist is probably the dumbest thing you have said in minutes! That would make me a little more liberal than you, which is right up there w/ the Nazis+:
