Nobody Loves You When You're Down and Out

President Bush had become extremely unpopular, and politically he was sort of a millstone around our necks in both ‘06 and ‘08. We now have the opportunity to be on offense, offer our own ideas and we will win some.

A millstone? How DARE he say that about the Dear Leader? Does McConnell suffer from Bush Derangement Syndrome? Is he a snob who hates common sense? Doesn't this mean McConnell hates America and loves terrorism?

Or is the leader of Senate Republicans just an unprincipled hack who'll lick Dubbya's boots when things are going well, but who'll say he never liked the guy when the Republicans are out of power?

And while we're asking questions, why do you think the people who are so snarky about Obama followers thinking he's a "messiah" have developed amnesia about the six years of servile groveling the Right did before the altar of George Dubbya Bush? Why do you think they've forgotten Rudy Giuliani's gushing speech where he claimed to have said, as he watched the Twin Towers fall, "Thank God George Bush is President?" Is it hypocrisy, or is it, as I've suggested, some sort of brain damage?

I didn't like America being a one-party nation under Bush.

I also don't like it being a one-party nation now.

The irony is that you can blame the GOP for it in both cases.

There is a brilliant conservative out there who can take the reigns when the pendulum swings back to the right.

I don't know who he is because he likely hasn't even run for his first public office yet.

In the meantime, I'll enjoy life under a president who, unlike some in the media, likes to know what he's talking about.

IMO, "unprincipled hack" is one of the nicer things that McConnell can be called.

Maybe you underestimated the guy.
