If Rahmboy can exercise a little more self-control than saying "Republicans can go fuck themselves", which is his legacy from the Clinton days, which is when all the partisan bloodsport began, well then perhaps he can do his job as good as anyone else could in that spot
 
but as it stands in terms of who he is known to be, it's like if Bush appointed Rush Limbaugh as his chief of staff....that's how partisan it is, and no matter how you hope-drenched Obamites try to spin it, the fact of the matter is that a once in a lifetime, never before seen, post-partisan, non-partisan out to heal the nation, Change agent, transformative figure would not have picked a divisive and rabid partsian like this little, fey bully
 
Obama stands for Change.
So far Change is Joe Biden and Rahm Emanuel, rofl.....can't wait for strike 3.  What's next, is Janet Reno going to come busting through a wall after little Elian Gonzalez has been found in Miami again, lmao

lol godiva you rookie....why are you quoting Lindsay Graham.  He's as bad as McCain.  Which means that he's not a valid Republican and so that's the exact sort of guy who has screwed our own party by constantly trying to appease democrats who, no matter how much you help them as a republican, will always backstab you when it comes time for any election.....lol.....citing John McCain and Lindsay Graham, lol

Is everyone who reaches across the isle to get something accomplished a backstabber to their party?

When we voted for Change -  a lot of us meant a Change from the Republican party that we see as screwing things up.  So why in the world would we want to see him make a Republican his chief of staff???

No, Obama ran on Change from the status quo, the change from politics as usual.  That included, Zel, the Clinton years, Bill and Hillary, and then yet he taps one of the primary antagonists from the Clinton Administration.  That would be like McCain having won then appointing Newt Gingrich as chief of staff.  A bad pick is a bad pick.  I was up front enough to say it about Palin on DAY ONE when everyone else was shocked by the pick, so yeah I guess I need to wait for the class to catch up with me again. 
 
Anyway, who would've thought Change equalled 30-year-Senate-lifer Joe Biden and Clinton Hack Rahm Emanuel, rofl.  This is going to be easier than I thought if this is the sort of thing Obama is going to be up to.

Actually godiva, Bush cut taxes for everyone--that is, put more money in everyone's pocket by allowing all to keep more of what belongs to them in the first place--used tried and true economic policies--just like Reagan and JFK--to pry us out of the tech bubble burst recession, and America benefitted from a workforce that saw an unemployment rate a full percentage point lower than the average rate under President Clinton.

Not so sure that's how it works, Deja. 
 
One, I'd never run for elected or public office.  Two, it's never anyone's turn to put up with or muddle through any President's time in office.  Three, you will not see me ever come anywhere near the level of derangement the Bush Bashers exuded on a disgusting daily basis, no matter what Obama may do that I have a political or philosophical difference with.  And odds are you will not encounter many Republicans who will either since that is not typically the sort of behavior we practice. 
 
Now I'm sure you've been spending your past absent months just being so smart or pondering intellect while the rest of us were here slugging out the election, so I'm sure your brilliant mind is well-rested enough to maybe weigh the hommage vice pays to virtue that is hypocrisy.

Hey, Tort, got any handy stats on the Nixon-to-Carter transition?
 
We were in a pretty decent recession during that election, I was just wondering how the market did in the wake of that election. I was into boys and music at the time, so I really wasn't paying close attention.
 
Of course, Carter wasn't a Socialist and that wasn't a real threat at the time, so I'm sure the reaction was a bit different anyway.

the message ought to be LOUD and Clear to obama:  don't you dare venture off trying to nationalize and socialize
 
hey gang, i've been thinking about this for a little while, and I'm seriously almost ready to put money down that Obama will not be raising taxes any time soon...
