19 things Republicans want you to forget!

1) Republicans want you to forget that there were no weapons of mass destruction.

2) Republicans want you to forget that while the Republican Policy Committee was opposed to the deployment of U.S. Soldiers to Bosnia under President Clinton,they’ll brand you a terrorist if you oppose President Bush’s war in Iraq.

3) Republicans want you to forget there was no yellow cake uranium.

4) Republicans want you to forget that they hired a bunch of rich thugs to lie about John Kerry in 2004.

5) Republicans want you to forget they lied about John McCain in 2000…otherwise we would have President McCain right now and not President Bush.

6) Republicans want you to forget that before attacking Afghanistan to search for Osama Bin Laden and fight the terrorists, Bush first decided we need to attack Iraq – where there were no terrorists…until we attacked and occupied Iraq.

7) Republicans want you to forget that when the Army Chief of Staff Eric Shinseki suggested that “several hundred thousand troops”would be needed to stabilize and occupy a country the size of Iraq, President Bush and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld both derided the Army Chief of Staff. His reward for his honesty? They let him go.

8) Republicans want you to forget that they inherited the biggest surplus in the history of the United States when they assumed control of all three branches of the United States government in 2000 when they took power, and turned it into the largest deficit in the history of the United States.

9) Republicans want you to forget that they had a plan to attack Iraq drawn up long before 9/11.

10) Republicans want you to forget that you can’t spend any money when you are dead.

11) Republicans want you to forget that sending jobs overseas takes jobs away from working Americans.

12) Republicans want you to forget that they want your grandparents to pay as much as possible for healthcare.

13) Republicans want you to forget that they don’t want Social Security to exist at all, instead, you get whatever money you have managed to save when you retire.

14) Republicans want you to forget that a Republican President has started every war since WW2. If they can’t find enemies, they just pick a noun (drugs, terror).

15) Republicans want you to forget that they have people in their party who solicit sex from underage boys – and when they get caught, they just quit and oh darn, Congress has no authority over private citizens so now Mark Foleycannot be prosecuted.

16) Republicans want you to forget that they use racial slurs on colleagues’ voicemail. When they are caught, they say they are drunks.

17) Republicans want you to forget that fuel costs have doubled since 2000, but your income has not.

18) Republicans want you to forget that even though you are not making record profits, oil companies are.

19) Republicans want you to forget that if major companies can’t pay their bills, they can declare bankruptcy and get out of their debts, but you have to pay all of your debts even if you declare bankruptcy.

Great list! You could also add that in 2000 64.4% of the workforce was employed and today it is 62.9% - and the trade deficit and foreign borrowing and wages and poverty - all have gotten worse under the GOP.

Actually, please remember #13. It's not the government's job to pay your retirement - plan ahead.

The government paying someone's retirement is not the point! HELLO!?

The government should not implement social security programs that will never come to fruition.

You need to look up what the premise for SS was supposed to be.

The premise for Social Security is just what those words mean. Social programs to help people. Because if you think everyone can save money and has a fair chance your living in some sort of dreamworld.

That's one of the jobs of the government, a system that is supposed to take care of it's people. Not rape the public with war.
