|Quoting ANCFlyer (Reply 2):
Coulda had "Mr. I voted for it before I voted against it
You mean, the guy who realized later that there was something seriously wrong and changed his opinion? Isn't that better than the whole "stay the course even if we're fucking wrong" bullshit?
Tell me, ANCFlyer, what is so seriously wrong with I voted for it before I voted against it? You're telling me that that simple sentence sums up everything about John Kerry? Wouldn't you rather have a guy that can take responsibility for what he did by deciding that what he initially thought was wrong?
Imagine if Republicans did that today. Whenever they're wrong, it's someone else's fault. Even when one of your gay senators tried to screw an underage boy, it's the Democrats fault. Time to stop blaming others, accept that your party screwed up (and don't tell me you're an independent. You're a classic example of a Conservative Republican), and move on and bring someone else in.
It's funny, when I think about it. My roommate a year or so ago was a Republican, and he was a good guy, but the "stay the course" notion is what he LIKED about the party. He liked the solidarity and the idea of going full steam and getting the job done (what job? I'd ask him..). That's what the Republicans had going for them.
Somebody tell me what the GOP has going for them other than anti-gay, anti-abortion ("pro-life" doesn't count when the party is electric chair happy), anti-freedom of speech and bill of rights (see patriot act), anti-constitution (see wire-tapping and patriot act), arrogant, alcoholics (see george bush and dick cheney), and pedophiles?
Time to clean up things in our sad state of government.
What's next. "I never said I was a war president" ? or "We never said there were WMDs in Iraq!"?
