Ok, hindsight is 20/20 and all that, but when I think about the way things have been done by the Republicans in the last couple of years, I can't imagine what they were thinking, or WHY they thought it was a good idea.
For two years, they have been accusing everyone who was against the war, or didn't like Bush, of little things like treason.
Did they think that they could accuse people of treason, and still get their votes?
Did they think that it was a good idea to accuse New Yorkers of supporting the scum that flew jumbo jets into the World Trade Center, devastated their city and killed their friends? Didn't they realize that that would make the people so accused completely FURIOUS?
And when every single survey showed that Americans were sick of the Iraqi war, why didn't the Republicans actually try and figure out if maybe there was a REAL REASON for that? Instead, the response was to just call all of those people the filtheist names, and accuse them all of being TRAITORS and supporters of terrorists.
Did they not realize that in the last two years they were saying that about the majority of Americans?
And the idiots in Congress - what were they thinking?
Why would you rubberstamp every whim of a President with a 38% approval rating? Why would you think that that was a good idea? And why would you then expect the 60% who don't like him to vote for you?
"I don't like what Bush is trying to do."
"Well, as long as I'm in office, he can do anything he wants, traitor. Now vote for me."
