Thank you and happy holidays.
Until you brought him up, no one had mentioned Bush, IIRC (not going back to read the whole thing).

Point?
Can you see the difference in deflecting to Bush and co. for all the countries ills vs. my example about hypocritical behaviours?

My analogy is correct, sorry you have to be so blindly partisan.

I didn't say you were right or wrong. I said you're the one who brought up Bush, in a thread about Franken. Talk about deflection. Who's blindly partisan?

Well since I didn't vote for Bush,that would make you the partisan one.
But you did agree with me, so sorry, but no amount of double talk will erase that.

I'm partisan b/c you didn't vote for Bush? How does that make me partisan? I'm not sure what I agreed with? All I said is you brought up Bush in a thread about Franken. You're really on a tear this morning. Maybe you need to have some coffee and chill.

I like Franken! Hey, how about 2016? Here's a slogan, "Frankly Franken 2016 - Let's kill the bull!".

Apparently, you haven't been paying attention to the facts here either.

What about the closure of the "donut hole" in Medicare part D starting right away? Isn't that a benefit that we are paying for?

BTW, check you own facts before accusing someone else of being an idiot.

Maybe he wasn't an idiot before he spent the 70s pickling his brain with cocaine and whiskey.

I'm none too excited about the latest iteration of the Senate Health Bill, but Franken's frankness is amusing as always!
Franken is a joke, a complete idiot, and an embarrassment to the intelligent people of Minnesota who did NOT vote for the Bozo.

So we have a mediocre comedian, whose only real work was to write smut stories for Playboy, leading the charge for Health Care Reform.


Does this NOT frighten people?
