90%

Over all, John McCain has voted with George W. Bush 90% of the time. That means, he thought George W. Bush and Dick Cheney were right 90% of the time.

In 2007, that voting rate went up to 95% of the time.

This year?

Oh, this year??

2008: 100%

    They were broken in his plane crash and his captors never took the time to set them correctly and they healed in the wrong position.
    He was also tortured for years and hung by his arms.

  3. If you would like to know the truth about the 90% thing. Look this up. Sorry dude, I have to call you out on your regurgitation of CNN liberal media distortions.

  4. By the way, President Clinton promised a tax cut for the middle class working Americans too. It never happened. If Obama is going to do all of the things he promises and you people think it will include giving 95% of Americans some tax relief...

    Maybe if he really ends the war.

  5. Um, your little link says I'm right.

    The "maverick" toed the party line, which was directed by Cheney, Bush and Rove.

    For further clarification, here is another link:

    As for Clinton, Obama isn't clinton. The clintons themselves have been saying that for the last year and a half.

  6. Dr. B, it's probably an unwise argument to financially compare the current candidates (Obama and McCain) to their elected predecessors (Clinton and G.W.Bush).

    As I've said before, I can appreciate the traditional Republican stance of fiscal conservatism in domestic affairs. I can also appreciate (although not necessarily agree with on all cases) the idea of small government. The current administration however has done neither. (And two years of a Democratic-controlled Congress don't make up for the previous six years of the other party's control, especially when the current drain on our national coffers has yet to go away.) So that's a problem.

    I can also respect the idea of breaking away from the current administration and "affect real change" - an idea that's been adopted by both parties. But McCain cannot effectively do that, as he's proven during the RNC. He has to still appease the party base, and that's not his fault but an unfortunate reality all the same.

    So here's what we got - we got a current administration that has "broken the system". Both sides acknowledge it needs to be fixed. Who do you think can truly adopt more sweeping fixes to the system - the person who's still closely tied to the incumbent administration or the person who isn't?

  7. Well, I see your point but the reality is that neither person will really do any major changes.

    Republicans think that Washington is broken and Dems think that the country is broken. I agree with both but hate their stupid fuckin candidates.

    I never asked for the role of the pissed off conseravtive here. I just like giving another side of the argument instead of a daily Obama blow job.

  9. Well your occasional Rush Limbaugh-esque snarky comments aside, Bri, I think you voice a fair opinion here. You're voicing the concerns and trepidations of the upcoming election.

    Oh and you're gay.

    Government: "It does not keep the country free. It does not settle the West. It does not educate. The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and would have done somewhat more, if the Government had not sometimes got in its way."

  13. Conservatives don't just think that the government is broken; they are deliberately breaking it to prove their point. And, outsourcing as many divisions of government as they can over to the private sector where their buddies can make money. Its all about profiteering now.
