The Buck Stops Elsewhere

You know, just for once in my life I'd like to see a Republican own up to a mistake, apologize and then try to rectify the situation.

Today, we learn that to Mitt Romney the buck stops here at the Secretary's desk. What a weasley, awful, no-good, part-time governor.

"I think Secretary Cogliano made a mistake."

The only mistake I can see happened nearly four years ago: the election of Willard Romney. However, with the windy winter will come a renewed belief as Mitt floats on away and Massachusetts sees relief. Marry Poppins style.

This would almost be funny if someone hadn't actually died.

And if his total indifference and incompetence didn't affect so many helpless and innocent people's lives.

And when was the last time a Democrat owned up to a mistake, or don't they ever make any ?

Why don't we give them a chance, Anon? Last time I checked, you guys controlled all three branches of the federal government and most of the states. So, you know, the fact that you've done your damndest to destroy our country? Kind of on you.

Heck, if we follow your example, drown an American city, overturn a lot of the sort of important parts of the Constitution, put a gang of unbelievably incompetent criminal nutcases in charge of the federal government, do nothing when we're informed we're about to eb attacked and then start a stupid unnecessary war that leaves humdereds of thousands of people dead for no reason, we'll be sure to cop to it. Sound fair?

I still don't think Roosevelt knew about Pearl Harbor.

You assume that because I have problems with some Democratic positions that I'm a Republican. Not. Registered Libertarian. I don't want some bleeding heart liberal taking away my gun any more than I want some religious nut saying my wife doesn't have a choice for an abortion. And the scum that abuse the public trust by getting elected and then taking bribes(Dem or Rep) should be treated harsher than any convicted bank robber.

Well, yeah, I assume that because you come on and say hey just because he was responsible and blew it and passed the buck and can't be bothered to stick around and do his damn job for one day, shouldn't the Democrats take responsibility and apologize? They control one seat on the school commiittee in a small town in Iowa, after all. So go figure, it sounds familiar.

Just try not to point your gun at me, all right.

OMG, anon, 9/11 wasn't Clinton's fault, it was Roosevelt's fault! I should have realized the ramifications of that are being felt to this day. How could the poor autistic son ever have a chance with FDR's ghost persecuting him? Don't forget, he's still affected by the legacy of Andrew Jackson. None of this is his fault. He's just a pawn of forced beyond his control. No doubt that will be reassuring to the people who are going to die unnecessarily today and tomorrow and the day after that and for the next 10 years. We can't bring people back from WWII, so shgut up and die for Bush's approval rating, soldier. It all makes sense now, all you need is the lobotomy.
