Terrible: 24/7 GOP saying they would wipe out the debt quicker than Dems.

And why kill that Osama bin Laden fella who helped us beat the Russians in Afghanistan. Just because he tried to blow up the World Trade Center, what 15 years ago. Get over it, you already tried, convicted and sentenced the guys who did it -- it's still standing -- don't ya know. Just like Clinton, Gore meets with those so-called intelligence people every day. Once every six months should be more than enough I tell ya. And, just because we don't need that Saudi money in the banks anymore is no reason to upset their apple cart all the way over there. What, just because we get half our energy from solar and wind and whatever. It's still only half. What have they done to us? Dang liberal, spending American tax dollars to give a light water reactor to those nuts in North Korea -- like they'd ever be able to make a nuke. Ha! President Gore is a real problem. Constantly stopping banks from selling new products like CDOs and CDSs. Over regulation -- all the time. The only reason the economy has not nosedived completely is because of the new advances in communications. Ha! If he were to join, say, Apple Corporation their stock would tumble. Just take my word for it. We could sell our rights to the airwaves and pay off the debt, but, "No," he says.

Yup, it would be horrible.

Ending the fake Republican as sarcasm...

Problem is, Trump is not a third party Nader, he's a second party upstart. And, Hillary runs as stayed, calm, assured, old school. And the mood of the public is not for stayed, calm, assured, old school. I hope she can win it, but, it's more of a battle than I have seen her admit just yet.

No. Never. It's bait. INSTEAD: "Let's agree THAT we disagree."

Agreeing to disagree elevates disagreement as closure, an end. It's not.

Agreeing that we disagree is to say that we both acknowledge hearing each others ideas.

And, it provokes the idea that we need to identify that disagreement.

That's why Republicans use the wrong form. It is designed to let them run and hide from the truth rather than dealing with truth. They want to run back to their authority figures on radio and Fox listening to lengthy half-truths and rolling lists of unfinished unchallenged attacks. Attacks that make them feel powerful until they realize that they cannot answer challenges except by changing the topic quickly over and over again. Or, by invoking a false ending.

W* should be relieved it wasn't his 2004 SEC letting top 5 banks treat CDOs as cash....

No, it had to be a Democrat.

Even if it starts with Regan and there were a few glitches -- small recessions, did I remember to say small -- until we get to a ... a ... Democrat, Clinton, who had 8 years of constant up in market. The eventual fall after he left office due to Republican recalculations and putting their immediate bad months mixed with Clinton's last months was certainly not the fault of the Republican re-calculators.

No, it had to be a Democrat.

Even though the stock market took a dive the day of the election and people started putting their Clinton era earnings into housing instead. Even though the economy needed government help of borrowing over a thousand dollars per person and giving them 600 dollars to boost the economy. Even though as 2004 re-election loomed and 6 months prior the SEC decided to free the banks from that pesky old 10% rule. (CDOs are as good as cash anyway!) Even though we had changed from a trade surplus under Clinton to a trade deficit under W* that put cash into the hands of the Chinese who then put that cash into the housing bubble inflating it further and letting bankers give cash interest up front. (Oops, the Chinese didn't like that investment and we had to give them part of our national debt instead.) It couldn't be called a problem made by a Republican like W*.

No, it had to be a Democrat.

Not that anyone would benefit from re-writing history.

WARNING: There may be a lot of sarcasm here.
