Roller Coaster of Hell


One of my more delightful commentators came up with an expression: "The rolling loop of hell that is the United States." She is absolutely right. The President speaks and you come crashing down only to be thrust up again when a group of Republican Senators find the guts to defy him.

It is announced that he will be speaking at the U.N. ... Oh No! Mr. Bill. How many nations will walk out as they should and down we go one more time? Whoopsie daisy, Keith Olbermann goes a bit over the top, but who cares? We are all getting a little excitable here and Presidential temper tantrums can have that effect on you. So how about that apology George?

The latest list of casualties comes in; Anbar is in flames; suicide bombers take out another sixty Iraqis and your stomach rises to meet your head. Ahmandinijab sounds like the mad man he is and then Amanpour comes on the television to remind us of how wonderful the Irani people are and they don't deserve to be bombed.

Up down, around and around we go. Can you think of even one thing that is better because this man is in the White House? No it is a constant flood of bad news, slightly hopeful news, worse news, small silver lining, worst that you can hear, but maybe there is still hope.

Look folks!!! Just use the mid terms to provide some Constitutional checks and balances. Otherwise the next two years are going to be a really bumpy ride.

Jamie....another winning post...

If you can pick up a copy of the magazine, Washington Monthly...you should do so... it has a very interesting article written by 6 conservatives....each giving their reasons and perspectives on why the Republicans should lose at least one house in Nov. The #1 reason being what you said at the end of your post...to provide some Constitutional checks and balances.
One of the contributors is MSNBC's Joe Scarborough....his piece is not only informative...it's quite funny...

Actually Jamie, don't you mean the Tower of Terror? After all that's what he's all about isn't it?

God Bless all.

( Sean Penn was on Larry-still- Dead-King the other night and he pointed out that some of the Do-nutin- Dems don't deserve to keep their seats either...and I thought ya know he has a point....)
