elections matter

I swear, sometimes it is difficult to keep up with progressives and Democrats. First they demand an exit from Iraq, and then the most progressive administration in decades starts signaling that they want to stay in Iraq longer than George Bush did. Speaking of Bush, remember when the Left screamed about the “imperial Presidency” because Bush went to war in Iraq without sufficient consultation with Congress? Their champion in 2008, Barack Obama, took us to war in Libya without any consultation with Congress in 2011. Not only that, but the White House openly scoffed at the idea that Congressional approval was necessary at all.

And remember Abu Ghraib, the scandal that the Left used to demand the resignation of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and to paint the entire Bush administration as torturers? You know, the one where the ACLU found memos from the commanding general that authorized the use of dogs in interrogations of prisoners held there, which the Left went bonkers over? Guess who the Democrats have apparently picked to run for the open US Senate seat in Texas

    Not only do elections matter, as you say,
    to Democrats, elections are evidently the only things that matter.

    There is no republic when the citizenry exist to serve the politics rather than the other way around.

    It’s not like Democrats were not hypocrites before.

    I mean, come on, Presidential Kneepads? Clinton was thrown out of the Lawyer Club for poor ethics, for crying out loud. The Hollywood Sex Party crowd and their love for Malaise and Tighten Your Belts Carter? “Let’s Start A War” Kennedy? “Fight Fascism Abroad and Institute It At Home” FDR?

    Not. New. Also not good, but not new.

    Words only have importance when they are used to get the manchurians elected.

    After they are in, the little peeps don’t matter.

    I think they’ve come to realize that they can destroy the military by overextending men and hardware. It’s much easier that way. Plus they can also burn through billions with extended wars, hence, a swifter way to greater deficits.

    Yes elections matter….

    From Drudge Report:
    “Muslims riot as Nigeria nears election of Christian president… ”

    Any fool who thinks we should any longer go to war to promote “democracy” in a Muzlim country, oughta have his ass stomped.
