Oh btw the democrat convention is paid for by donations from the evil corporations. The same ones who a lot of our bailout tax money went to.

Well thanks to Citizen's united this is invariably true now forever as a prerequisite for competing in any election. But I didn't say anything about "evil corporations" so I'll just chalk that up to another righty straw man.Oh btw the democrat convention is paid for by donations from the evil corporations.

At least I know I'm not dealing with a rational person -- makes sense since I'm coming to the dump to continue the dialogue . . .
I'm a Democrat. Stuff like this is why, in general, I don't like Democrats.
I don't even like Woody Johnson. But why does voicing his political beliefs reflect poorly on Woody's class?
If you have a problem with a Republican owning the team you're a fan of....well, I'm pretty sure that most billionaires are Republicans.
That being said, watching the DNC tonight all I've seen is talk about killing bin Laden, bringing troops home from Iraq, education reforms, saving the auto industry, ending DADT etc.
But as long as the right wants to play games with the unemployment numbers the Dems have zero choice but to bring up the fact that the largest downward swing occurred right as Obama was coming into office and had no chance to do anything and since has stabilized and gradually improved.

You need 60 votes to end a filibuster, and the Democrats only 60 votes for a couple of weeks. The Minnesota Senate seat was in dispute for months, leaving the Democrats with 57 seats, plus Lieberman and Sanders. By the time Franken showed up, Ted Kennedy was dead and they were still at 59 seats. Scott Brown won the election in Massachusetts and the Democrats never got to take advantage of the oh-so-rare super majority.
Lets start with the irony of your post:
You are a typical whiny democrat who can't face realityYes typical democrat responseMasterful display of Orwellian language. I'm not a Democrat btw, i said that a couple of posts ago.Funny you can't say anything other then "blah blah blah typical republican" meanwhile I'm not.
Gitmo has been blocked because when funding came up for the transfers the Republicans rammed a provision into the military budget bill defunding it that they knew obama couldn't veto. Maybe try reading the actual news for once.
The rest of your post is just vague drivel with no supporting evidence. Of course the government inflates employment numbers, it still has nothing to do with what I've said which is that overall they've improved under Obama and anyone who isn't a total lemming can see that the number being cited by the GOP is the first day Obama was in office and the first couple of months saw the continuation of a massive slide that began before he stepped in. Keep repeating your "just blame Bush" quips, it does nothing to hide that reality or the reality that unless you are completely misinformed and not very bright, there really isn't much of a debate here.
Worst thread ever, mouth breathers.
