Damned Liberal Media

So Bush vetos a bill for Children’s health insurance- a bill that had wide bi-partisan support and almost every Demcorat voted for, and it is being portrayed as the Democrat’s fault:

SCHIP slips as Dems trip over message -By Jonathan E. Kaplan – October 03, 2007

Democratic leaders on Tuesday moved quickly to shift public attention to President Bush’s expected veto of a children’s health insurance program from a surtax to pay for the war in Iraq.

Democrats had been reveling in their good fortune, believing they had a winning issue in legislation to expand the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), which Bush is expected to veto Wednesday.

Damned liberal media.

    The GOP is the Daddy Party. Daddies don’t make mistakes. If something goes wrong, it’s Mommy’s fault. (Mommy is a woman, you know.)

    I thought we were all straight on this.

    I’m trashing on this thread now.

    GOP Is Losing Grip
    On Core Business Vote

    Some business leaders are drifting away from the party because of the war in Iraq, the growing federal debt and a conservative social agenda they don’t share. In manufacturing sectors such as the auto industry, some Republicans want direct government help with soaring health-care costs, which Republicans in Washington have been reluctant to provide. And some business people want more government action on global warming, arguing that a bolder plan is not only inevitable, but could spur new industries.

    Someone understands opportunity. Back in 2003 Bill Clinton was talking about global warming, saying that what it meant to address it was hi-tech, and what America did best was hi-tech. So combating Global Warming would be a big boon to American business.

    The rapturist party hates business. Listen to them yell and scream against western decadance, just like their Communist friends Mao and Stalin.

    $5 says if Dems manage to twist enough arms for a veto-override vote, it’ll be due to the valiant Republican Congressmen who helped save Children’s Health Insurance for everyone, horray.

    What we spend on the Iraq war in one year could expand SCHIP to all children in the US for like a decade.

    Actually, they’re both winning issues for the Democrats. Too bad their leadership doesn’t understand that. And, despite their epic incompetence, they are STILL thought of as the better choice.

    When the GOP finally implodes (I’d say around this time next year), the hapless media will finally have something they can’t blame the Democrats for.

    News reporters might be liberal weenies but they know who signs their paychecks, and it ain’t Michael Moore.

    Read the WSJ article The Other Steve linked to above. The GOP is imploding right now

    You underestimate their creativity.

    What El Cruzado said.

    No doubt the Broderites will complain that the collapse of the GOP was because the Democrats weren’t willing, in the spirit of comity, to go far enough to save them from themselves.

    Why don’t you quit whining. He vetoed the bill for specific reasons. Why don’t at least point out those reasons. You can’t even be honest with yourself of readers about why.

    JWW doesn’t need prudent reasons, or humanitarian reasons, or even politically savvy reasons. Bush had specific reasons, and that’s good enough for JWW.

    One reason only. To spite Democrats.

    When Bush spends more in a month on his war masturbation then SCHIP costs in a year, his arguments are full of shit as usual.
