That's cute Imshard. Is there any other republican generated bogeyman issue you want to fling out on the table as promoted by one of their professional operatives?
Let's see . . . we are now nine trillion dollars in debt due to the Bush/republican leadership's borrow and spend mania. That's nine trillion dollars - NOT billions - and counting. This is HOW this nation paid for all those tax breaks for the wealthy and for two simultaneous and ongoing war ventures. We borrowed from communist china until they now partly own us, and we borrowed heavily from every other nation on earth with a pulse and a bank surplus. I call ten trillion dollars - which it will be and more - before we get Bush the criminal out of office, a substantial amount.
Ten trillion dollars of debt. That's the Bush economic legacy to this nation.
Sort of makes the traditional bogeyman scare of those EVIL BABYBOOMERS and their cost to the nation seem like chump change now, doesn't it?
What I love about republican think is that they - and their mouth pieces and apologists - take a block of people who worked hard all their lives and have done nothing but contribute to the economy and then turn them into evil incarnate just to draw attention away from the real problems and the real evils. Ten Trillion dollars of debt. Hmmmm . . . cookies!
Sort of sounds like the way Nazi Germany scapegoated using the Jews. Sort of sounds like the way the republican leadership, through Limbaugh and Hannity, O'Rielly, Coulter, and other professional propagandists working for the republican party, are currently scapegoating using illegal immigrants and, oh yes, the babyboomers.
“Look! Look Americans! Look over here . . . no, not there! Why do you always want to look at the real - er - the wrong things? Look over there, yes there! See that peacefully and productively living goat? See it?! It's evil! It's going to destr - will you STOP looking at what our other hand over here is doing in your national cookie jar?!”
As I said Imshard, cute. Next time try not to use a red herring that begins by flinging out so many patented republican propaganda bullet points and drips of republican think tank coaching.
I'm with you, but please, invoking the Nazi's always makes you sound like a demagogue. It allows people to scoff at your otherwise solid arguments. The neocons are a lot of heinous things, but I don't give them enough credit to be compared to Nazi's. If anything they resemble low class mafia hoods, and pretty short sighted ones at that.
Further I will give him credit for raising a salient point, a lot of the GAO guy says is true, but that doesn't change what you and I believe, if anything it only makes it more emphatic.
