    Gricks if that is true then so is the guy going gimme gimme gimme but we all have to forgive gricks, he like a lot of others have fallen for this culture. In school we are taught liberalism we see it in television, so there is no competing ideas.

    We see it here everyday, how often does the left attack the right on gocomics? The sad thing is they attack the person not the ideas. It is OK to attack or challenge an idea it is just week and rude the person even though the 2012 election shows that it works.

    Reagan oversaw a massive, unfunded expansion of federal government. He also raised taxes in his second term.

    It was almost “Let the private sector take care of the hurricane victims.”

    @Ms. Ima

    Three words “Alzheimer’s in office”. Of course the far right loons are continuing to canonize this crumb who should have been removed from office.

    Con Ed is a private company. Should have the Government done more before the storm, perhaps. But electrical utilities were deregulated causing many of the problems and delays you sight.

    A very notable full page ad run in a Dallas newspaper called for the arrest of JFK as a Communist ran the day he was killed. This is what conservatives really thought in 1963.

    How about people (like Romney) who earn $millions in capital gains that get taxed at 15%? Or oil companies that receive $billions in tax credits while earning 10s of $billions? Aren’t they part of the “gimme gimme” crowd?

    @ansonia

    Refuting a statement with facts is not an attack.

    I may be beating a dead horse here, but oh well. What is interesting is how the positive achievements of a president or party gets ignored. Bush worked hard at eradicating malaria and other insect born diseases in Africa by providing sleeping nets for people. Laura Bush was active in the middle east educating people about breast cancer and especially fostering education for girls/women. Since Bush is so often maligned, this is just a positive example, I am not taking a position on this.
    My point is this: both political parties have been responsible for increasing government spending and growing the size of government since Teddy Roosevelt. I would be happy to post web sites to substantiate the data if necessary. Both parties have gotten us into wars, while at the same time both parties have provided us with security as a nation second to none. The problems we face today need to best thinking we can come up with, both economically and politically. This constant personal bashing I see here goes way beyond political argument, it gets mean spirited and personal. One would hope this divisiveness and partisan wrangling would lighten up after the election. Obviously not. The cable media is as revved up as ever spewing out their biased opinion and rancor.
    “We the people” are the ones that win or lose here. It would be nice if we could see the people insisting from their representatives (blue and red) for tangible compromise and solutions, not the continual bickering and political positioning. On these pages? I think if we just tried to present facts and substantial information here without the insults might be a good start…

    Peabody do you know you just proved my point? You attacked Regan not his ideas.

    @TheTrustedMechanic

    “Blah, blah,blah, everything you accuse the liberals of the CONservatives do in gross”.

    And yet you don’t give an example or even a post to support your argument. You proved my point you attacked me, not my ideas or in this case my opinion. You could not, so all you did was attack me.

    In my case, yourself, pea-body and maybe gricks are my examples. That isn’t to trusting in my book.

    One definition of Politics is: deciding who gets what. If you are rich in the USA in 2012, then you can get most of it. If you are poor, Michael says you sound like “gimme, gimme, gimme”
