read links its just the difference between what you claim the links say/support and what they actually say/support were such drastically different things that I was forced to establish a "no-links" policy with you.
I also note that you failed to address any but 1 of points I made above.
Ok, so lets see how you did with that single point.
"They have passed fewer than half and many laws as the next least productive congress"
1-Notice that you focus on the quantity
of the laws rather than the quality
of laws. Not sure that sheer amount/number of laws passed rationally/logically have anything to do with the quality--therefore this argument goes no-place.
2-How many laws is that? See without something measure it against then a percentage of anything is pretty useless. Its like saying "Valkenar was dishonest only half as many times as he was last week."
without numbers its kinda useless as measurement.
3-Since I have already estbalished that quantity over quality is meaningless--this goes my way as well
4-As I think John Kerry said--its most certainly was a Dem--and my paraphrase "sometimes its not what you pass, sometimes its what you keep others from passing."
So don't confuse "passing laws" with all that they do.
"Their popularity is the populariy of the US going communist"
Which does not exclude
the DEMS--which you failed to mention the first time around. Which is kinda my point. In any case, your argument here is that leadership should be a popuarity contest and I would point out that many decsions are remarkably unpopular--by your logic then Obamacare should not have happened because it was and remains wildly "unpopular"--Heck his own part requured bribes to pass it and they had to tell everyone that it was not a tax--then when they got to the Supreme Court they THEN called it a tax. And you say voters have a poor memory.
"They held up the debt ceiling and degraded our credit rating"
Folks in the know call that a "bumper sticker fallacy"--you take a really complex subject and reduce it to a vastly oversimplifed statement---"fur is murder, taxation is theft."
In point of fact its much more complex than the fallacy you use.
example--part of the problem was caused by the houseing crisis--Fanny Mea and Freddy Mac--which your guy-a fellow Lefty Barny Frank was on national TV telling everyone was solid prior to it going south. Again with the poor memory.
"They voted 33 times to repel Obamacare"
Which they should have--IMO their main function is to carry out the wishes of the people that elected
them, not rubber stamp everything the dude in the White House does.
Thus this this argument is non-starter from the get-go. Doing their job as their electorate wishes is part of their function--regardless if you or the president agree with their stance.
"They cost the country.........."
Since when has a Lefty ever cared about the cost of anything? As mentioned prior, you guys haven't passed a BUDGET
in years. You folks on the Left are not really cost-benefit kinds of people. But I'll be sure and remind you of this point from now on.
Such as the cost per job
of the Obama stimulas plan.
or the cost of Solyndra and other such boondoggles
or the cost of waste, fraud and abuse in various governement program.
"The most dysfuntional"
1-And whose fault is that? I would lay the "blame" on an Imperial President that makes no effort
to convience anyone of their plans and simply rules by executive fiat. Forcing wildly unpolpular legislation through by the same kind of political machinations you personally have railed against when someone on the Right does it.
2-"Dysfunction" is often kinda the point of how the process is set up. Its a process function designed to keep too much power from being taken by any group or party. As such its not necessarliy (sp) an unalloyed negative.
So lets re-cap--you dropped every single point
I raised save 1, and none
of the stuff you did address on that sole point passed even a basic smell-test.
More sturm and drang from the resident Lefty.
