Republicans Speak

Theodore Roosevelt, Republican and 26th president of the United States:
~

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."

~


We have a free local weekly that has local news, local bands and something they call "Speak Out". People can call email or write in their opinions, bumper stickers, replies to last weeks opinions, or quotes. I've noticed a very rightwing slant, with letters pleading for support of bushco, and recently a string of REAGAN quotes. Icky Icky Reagan quotes.

Following the principle that Coulter was NOT dropped by newspapers because the liberals are calling, writing and emailing the editor to say how nasty she is, but rather it was the conservatives who called wrote and emailed to say that they didn't like her views, and didn't want her representing them, that made the editors pull her column - I have started a stealth campaign. I look up good republican quotes (and there are quite a few of them) and send them in to the Speak Out editor. I will be cross posting them here, and if you have a local rag that publishes letters or quotes, feel free to cut and paste!

That is a damn good idea. I hope to hell it works. Teddy Roosevelt is a great one to pull quotes from. He was against everything BushCo stands for - especially their partiality toward big business. If Teddy hadn't sided in favor of labor and immigration over big business and elitism - America wouldn't have had all those years of growth and prosperity. So go for it. If I come across any good quotes from Roosevelt or Lincoln - I'll email them to you.

"When we talk about War we are reallly talking about Peace".

Puppet in Chief.

Or this - "Why this huge contract has not been and is not now being adequately audited is beyond me," Rumsfeld said. "The potential for waste and profiteering under such a contract is substantial."

Rumsfeld when he was Congressman from Illinois in 1966. In reference to LBJ's cozy relationship with Halliburton.

I got it from Facing South

Peace.

Hey Robin Andrea. They print once a week, so it looks I'll be doing themn on the weekend.

Hey TFLS, sock it to me - if you find any I'd love to see them! Eisenhower was a goodie too.

Hey, Human, These crooks that are infesting the White House right now are so two faced. Everything they have been complaining about for so long, they do - only about 1000 times worse! Our problem is that when we say it, it's now same old same old thing. Everyone's tired of the chorus. Thanks for the link - it should be a great help.

Hey POP, thanks for the encouragement. whew, sometimes I really need it. Watching this train wreak of a govt go bumbling around the world is starting to get me down.
