why do the majority of the Republicans on here sound so stupid?
I am a Republican, who is ashamed of whats happened to my party,but I am not stupid enough to try and defend Bush and his costly policies.
Seriously I have read the comments , left by Democrats and Republicans to questions, and most of the time the Democrat articulate their positions a hundred times better than most of the Republicans.

At least on here, people who label themselves Republican, immediately state that all the rest on us only see the bad side, only believe what we are being ignorantly fed by the media and only Rush and Fox has some secret intelligence that makes everything Bush has done correct. Its like they cover their eyes and ears, and sing La-las. I suppose they can believe anything but the sad truth, that we elected a leader without ability. Its not just the war either, look at the fiasco Katrina left, with incapable people put into positions of real power and when they should have stepped up, they blamed the poor and homeless for the ravages of a natural disaster. You might remember, or look it up, after WWII we had the Marshall Plan that rebuilt Europe. Surely we could have used that as a pattern to rebuild our own country.
None are so blind as those that will not see.

I'm with you. I've been a registered republican for 25 years and am agast at how the far right and big business has taken over the party. I'm for fiscal conservatism, and yet the Bushublicans have no problem with our country racking up by far the most debt in its history (pushing $9T right now).
Just how bad does the situation in Iraq need to get before you realize that maybe it just wasn't a good idea in the first place? When a major terrorist attack occurs in the US from militant factions based in war torn Iraq 4 years from now - they'll all blame it on the (then) Democratic president.

I'm a liberal and I certainly never tried to defend some of the stuff Clinton did.
I think people get caught up in "I like him, I have to defend him on every point" when in reality, you don't. It's a sign of how decisive our political system has become that you can't even give up one point without seeming like you have switched parties.

a lot has to do with republicans selling themselves into the debt of populists. the republican views on abortion, prayer in school, gun control, the war on drugs and terrorism, gay marriage, and the list goes on infinitely are the complete reversal of the supposed republican ideal of shrinking government and taxes. using government to push a minority agenda is called populist and its what has gotten virtually every republican since regan elected. if you watch a movie called "jesus camp" you will see the evangelicals beloved ted haggard talking about how he controls the government. thats not a republican ideal -- its scary.

Probably because they're mostly Democrats who need to get a life posing as intellectually challenged right-wingers.

Brcause they don't know what they are doing. They are so out of contact with the real problems in America. The only rep I like is Sen Luger he should run in 08.

That's what happens when you let the GOP slash educational funding! Thanks for sharing your shame. A lot of the neocons here are rabid right-wingers who've highjacked an otherwise respectable party and made it a laughing stock. Most backers are deranged or immature beyond belief.

I agree with you on everything except the word stupid or I'd like to think they are 10 (mentally) and still think it's great to shoot other people and not consider that in most cases they may shoot back.
I'm also am a Rep. although I'm loath to admit it.
