It has nothing to do with schadenfreude, it has to do with historical facts. Got something against facts.

This is a NO News thread or perhaps showing the lack of historical knowledge some of the posters have.

Of course I don't mean you.

Yep, GWB is totally blamless. Everything he touched or did turned to gold.

But does gold smell like that?

It was pretty obvious as to the situation that your Messiah was walking into and he could of pulled out of the election. The Democrats had total control of Congress for 4 years and they blew it. They[the Democratic Congress] are a BIG part of the problem too, not just Bush.

How low... well if he keeps trying to make nice with the Republicans for the next two years, I think we might see a record set!

Somebody had better try..... unless you missed the last election. I've seen repudiations of efforts made before.... but this one was signal in it's immensity.

Kind of a very loud, "we see what you are doing and we don't like it". Keep up your far left agenda and legislative lowball antics and 2012 will be another, equally severe, slap in the face.

Most people "wake up" when their face is slapped a bit. (With the exception of idealogues and fanatics. They have their own "dimention"/"reality" to live with.)

At least your honest about it. I've never quite understood the facination for American elections on here by some Canadian members. (Bit like me telling some parties their country would be better off if Preston Manning was PM )

I would still not be surprised if HUSSEIN Obama is reelected in 2012, regardless of what's going on right now.

Never understimate the Left's abilities to bend the rules, cheat and lie.
