I'm not naive. I'm just not settling for the same old shit.
And this is surprising why? When the example Bush set when he was in office was to lie out his ass to accomplish what he wanted, why wouldn't his fellow Republicans lie about earmarks and why they refuse to pass any economic stimulus proposed by the Democrats? It's a case of sour grapes, Dems are in the majority, they can't have it their way, so they're going to do their damnedest to make sure the Dems can't have it their way, even if that means our country goes down the tubes. The Republicans don't care about anything but their power, the rest of us can rot in hell for all they care.
