    "Hopey changey" is the language of bitter partisans. It is the same as "Bush lied people died." If you see it or hear it, you know the messenger's motives.

    Get it?

    Oh well - of course only a republican could possibly use the phrase. It could NEVER be used by an independent or a democrat . . . . riiiiiggggghhhhhttt . . . .
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    well the big difference between the two is one is a lie and other is a play on a campaign slogan.

    I saw a bumper sticker that said," Obama lied, the economy died."

    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.

    This has a distinctively DUish flavor to it. It smells like the idiotic book jacket campaigns to switch books around in Barnes and Noble and such.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    Do you ever wish you had someone competent to defend? This has got to be discouraging for you because even when you win a battle of wit for what purpose is it!:(
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    It's partisan, but the great thing about America is that we have a right to be partisan. What makes it bitter? The fact that he's failed to deliver? That the changes have wrecked the economy? That our hope is now focused on voting him out?

    No. Referring to the "hopey changey" thing is a means of pointing out that is was a vague platitude, not a policy. We are allowed to discuss policy, aren't we? Or does that make us bitter partisans, too?
