    Interesting words.


    Before he broke off the interview, Sarkozy was asked about what he would like the American people to know about him. "I want the Americans to know that they can count on us. But at the same time, we want to be free to disagree," he said. The comment apparently referred to France's opposition to the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, a stand that until recently had soured relations with Washington.

    Sarkozy said he admired Americans' work ethic and the opportunities for advancement in the country, irrespective of class or background.

    He said while his Hungarian father had worried that his surname would be an obstacle in France, "he was proven wrong."

    "That's what he thought. That a name like Sarkozy was a handicap," the president said. "That's the reason why I like the United States. You can have a name like Schwarzenegger and be governor of California. You can be called Madeleine Albright and be secretary of state. You can be called Colin Powell or Condi Rice, and succeed."

    Sarkozy walks out on Liberal Leslie (Skinny Legs) Stahl, I too am falling in love with this guy he doesn't give a sh!t for any of those whacky loons, CBS is going down the toilet so fast it's hard to keep track of them, their left wing liberalism is now so obvious that it is completely destroying them.

    Leslie Stahl, Dan "Rat Face" Rather, Cute Perky Katie and Wally Cronkite should all sail off in Cronkites Yacht and let the US Navy use them for target practice.

    The insanity that GW Bush has created in the democratic party will send another Republican into the White House in 2008, the democrats are now in the process of self destructing, they have an 11% approval rating :singing:

    when this is proven untrue, will you promise to go away? will you promise anything? a retraction?

    that would be Congress overall, not the democrats... nice spin, however...

    anyway, the only reason it's so low is because Congress has not done enough (anything) to oppose the Bush Doctrine and the American people are disgusted about that after voting for change...

    nice spin, however...

    And the only reason the Dems took over Congress is because the propagandists, like James Carville and Paul Begala, whipped up the voting public into blind rage at "evil Bush"; only now that they got what they wished for, they realize what we all know: there is NO easy pat solution. Wholesale troop pull-outs while the nation is in virtual civil war only gives the guys with guns -- ie, the hoodlums, thugs, and terrorists -- control of yet another nation in the Middle East. And nobody wants to be blamed for that, not even knee-jerk anti-Repub Democrats.

    So now they get to stew in their own juices. Kind of like Eric Mangini.

    if that's what you honestly believe is the "only reason" the Dems took over, you truly do live in a dream world...

    that's not what you asserted... don't change the argument... get back to your assertion, and tell us again "the only reason" they were elected... otherwise, get back tothe point of the thread, and stop bloviating about nothingness...

    Coming from the guy who says the 11% approval rating is because they have not done enough to oppose Bush :rolleyes:

    Less than half of 45% is 22%. Combine the two and you still don't get 11% approval rating. Even if you say Repubs in Congress have a 0% approval rating, saying Dems have a 45% means that congress should have a 22.3% approval rating, which they don't.

    excellent number obfuscation... but what's your point?...

    you're not denying the fact that their numbers are low because they're not doing anything about the disasterous Bush Doctrine, which is the platform on which they were elected by the American people... that right there takes away well over half your liberal voting base, in addition to the conservative voters who will vote unanimously and spitefully, just on general "principle"...

    You're right: it wasn't the only reason. Another reason was that people wanted a change for the better, so they voted out a lot of Repubs who hadn't done much. Plus a lot of Repubs lost the fire in their bellies, and just quit. So, yes, more than one reason.

    But the biggest reason was: anti-Repub propaganda, aided and abetted by a willing media. A media which will do just about anything to get ratings. Sad day at Mudsville.
