The Republicans have zero right to complain about abuse of power

I must admit that for the first time, since my journey began into political blogging has began, much less, Conservative political blogging; I am divided on an issue. While I believe that what the Democrats are doing with the healthcare bill, with the protecting parts of the bill from being overturned is wrong. I also believe that the Republicans have zero right to complain.

This is what I mean

Let us not kid ourselves folks; The Bush Administration sold America using some very deceptive means, into a war in Iraq. The intelligence was bad; the Bush Administration knew this and did not care. They were determined to strike Saddam Hussein. So, while I am sympathetic towards the Republicans on this issue, I feel they have zero right to complain about this one, as it was the Republicans who backed the imperialistic actions of President Bush.

  1. This is a simple, straight forward affront to American democracy. In our system, there are checks and balances everywhere, including the ability, nay right, of voters to throw out elected officials who do not represent them appropriately.

    This is not to protect this bill from the Republicans per se, it is to protect the bill from the voters getting it changed by a less progressive Congress. Hope……….

    • Hi Megan,

      Why would a Libertarian Conservative, like yourself, vote for a socialist? Just wondering.

      Way I see it, you voted for him; you are partially responsible for this mess. But I don’t expect you to accept that responsibility… Which is quite like the beltway types.

    Except you can’t name one thing Bush or his administration said which was not believed to be true, or which was even extraordinary.

    This is about the Democrat Party led Senate ignoring rules to get the deeply unpopular–as in lacks legitimacy because the people don’t want it–healthcare passed.

    I suppose you will whine when the worm turns.

      Oh, I bet I could! :D

      Where’s the fucking WMD’s in Iraq? There was not any. Put that on your asshat pipe and smoke it!

      Actually, no, I won’t. If they pass it and it includes something where I can sign up for some healthcare. I will take it. Fuck, I am in the poor column here. No Job, No real income, it sucks. I’ll take what I can get.

      Thanks for the comments.

  3. Patrick: “Where’s the fucking WMD’s in Iraq? There was not any.”

    The National Ground Intelligence Center reported finding 500 chemical WMDs filled with sarin and mustard gas.

    But even if they never found any WMDs, the point of this article would be absurd. Apparently, Democrats have the right to carry out all manner of mischief in healthcare because we never found WMDs. That makes no sense.

      Those were from the FIRST gulf war. Not the current one. That’s old news.

      I never said anything. Look asshole, take your Neo-Con bullshit back to fucking HotAir.com okay? because this guy ain’t fucking buying it.

      NEXT!

  4. Let me see if I get this straight Patrick.

    Because the Republicans were wrong on the weapons on mass destruction point, that gives the Dems the right to over ride the constitution by this obvious undemoctatic provision in the health care bill? In case you forgot, the Dems saw the same incorrect evidence on WMD and voted to authorize the war. When it was discovered that the evidence was wrong, the GOP was voted out of power. That is how a democracy works.

    People who think like you are more of a threat to democracy than any member of Al Qada. In the depth of your ignorance can’t you see there is a more important issue here than GOP bashing.

    • First of all, Mr. Humphrey; I know full well, that the Democrats were an equal ex-parte in the debacle in Iraq.

      Second of all, I do not support this President, nor his Heathcare bill

      Third, you can take that stupid accusation about Al-Qeada and stick it in your ear, you jackassed twit!
