Ah the consistency of the GOP. Don’t you just love it?
Consider that the GOP is now threatening a filibuster – should President Barack Obama seek a Supreme Court justice who decides cases based on "emotions or feelings or preconceived ideas."
The general reason for their actions appears to be the one that controlled their votes under Bush – they oppose any preconceived ideas that aren’t theirs, and will vote affirmatively for any which are theirs. Preconceived notion – you attack civilians and destroy nations because of the act of a few hundred criminals ... who they decide to call terrorists. Hum. Think about it – has Bin laden done that much more (allowing for changes in technology) than Al Capone, Bonny & Clyde, or any of those criminals who were created by Right Wing fundamentalist policies in the 1920's & 30's?
Criminals are criminals and criminal nations house them. Iraq opposed them – so we attacked it. How many Americans died in the World Trade Center (Americans, not people) and how many American soldiers died in Iraq? The GOP or Al Qaeda – which killed more? How many Iraq men, women and children died from our invasion (preconceived by Bush et al before they were even elected) verses how many from Terrorists?
OK ... OK ... The terrorists love to murder Islamic believers and so target Mosques and Bazaars. If the followers of Islam don’t want to stop them, why should we get involved? Just because Bin Laden said we should? Just because he declared he wanted Bush & the GOP to take a Budget Surplus and turn it in to a Trillion dollar deficit? Is that why the GOP dislikes preconceived ideas? Because they are preconceived by true Americans rather than preconceived by foreign terrorist leaders?
YEP! That must be it.
Enjoy the fun and Games ... if the GOP has its way, this nation will not recover from the fiscal collapse it tookl the GOP eight years to create.
