You can set your watch to it

One of the funniest things about Democrats and media coverage of the Dubai Ports deal is how quickly the last jump-down-the-President's-throat issue just slides right off the radar.
 
Life was about to end just a month ago because the President was "spying on Americans". And before that it was something else-- the Supreme Court nominee, Rove, Delay, and on and on. Oh, and Abramoff.
 
For about 2 or 3 weeks the Democrats attention is focused on the President's and the Republicans and driving them into the ground for something. And as soon as that loses legs-- up pops another issue. And they begin firing again.
 
You can set your watch to it. Remember the bad economy? On and on the pessimistic rants went.
 
That's when I started looking around. That's when I stopped voting for Democrats. The economy didn't treat me all that well in 2003, but at the same time, I listened to the Democrats gloom-and-doom, and it didn't resonate. In fact, the opposite. I listened. I had reasons to believe it. But, a month later, two months later, I would reflect back on what I heard, and it was proved wrong. Time and time again. Pessimistic rants. Gloom and doom. And yet never was reality anywhere near the pessimism.
 
I listen to everyone. I am open to all ideas across the spectrum of ideas. However, politically, I no longer vote for Democrats. And I am glad to support the Republican party.
