The Difference Between the Parties

2000 - New Republican administration comes in, there is a massive terrorist attack on US shores, America rallies to the President (despite the fact that the Republican administration failed to heed specific warnings of an attack), Congress (including Democrats) give the President pretty much everything he wants.

2008 - New Democratic administration comes in, the worst economic collapse in the last 70 years is already underway (much of it at least indirectly due to policies of the out-going Republican administration), America rallies to the President, Republicans in Congress do everything they can to stop the President from taking actions to at least lessen the severity of the problem, blocking progress while arguing over 1% of the package.


Republicans really do suck.

"America rallies to the President"

What? More like:

A Gallup poll out Tuesday (Feb 3) showed that a majority of Americans want Congress to either reject or make "major changes" to the economic stimulus package on Capitol Hill.

"...much of it at least indirectly due to policies of the out-going Republican administration"

I keep hearing that. What policies? Keep in mind that the easy mortgage money was a Carter policy that was strengthend under Clinton. What Bush policies?

(McCain was such an idiot for not calling Obama on this lie)

List of a number of polls showing a majority of Americans favoring a stimulus package - the more detail that was given in the question, the higher the approval rating.

http://www.gallup.com/poll/114577/Stimulus-Support-Edges-Higher.aspx

67% approve of Obama's efforts, 59% back package

I find it amusing that so many wingers are able to pretend that the last eight years just didn't exist.

"McCain was such an idiot..."

Well, yeah, we can certainly agree to that!
