A Republican Tool-kit for Kicking Liberal ASS!
Here are a few tools for your anti-liberal war chest, arranged by common topics. Feel free to use these to go out and trounce the crap out of our not-so-bright liberal friends.
If your favorite pet liberal is pointing out that George Bush has allowed the outsourcing of well paying jobs to overseas, point out the following facts:
The tax benefits of outsourcing in fact were put in place by Bill Clinton not George Bush.
If they claim that he supports it because he's "for" big Business, simply tell them that George Bush is clearly not "for" outsourcing American jobs to foreign countries. Forcefully insist that they are swallowing party propaganda (http://www.factcheck.org/article.aspx?docID=236)
More on ousourcing: http://www.factcheck.org/article.aspx?docID=225 & http://www.factcheck.org/article.aspx?docID=168
If they claim George Bush has lost more jobs than any other president in history here's a nice pill for them: http://www.factcheck.org/article.aspx?docID=108
If they're spouting something about Sure there's been jobs created but they're all minimum wage, low paying jobs Here's a few pages to feed them: http://www.factcheck.org/article.aspx?docID=228 & http://www.factcheck.org/article.aspx?docID=208
If they are whining about Bush "eliminating overtime for 8 million" feed them this little bitter pill: http://www.factcheck.org/article.aspx?docID=151
If they're spouting their favorite "Oh well, when Clinton Lied, no one died" Point out that George Bush did not lie! (http://www.factcheck.org/article.aspx?docID=222)
Additionally point them to the fact that even John Kerry, who was a member of the Senate Intelligence committee (btw John Edwards is on the committee now!) believed that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and point them to Ogre's excellent list of quotes that he published a while back. In fact point out that the committee's jurisdiction is as follows:"Created pursuant to S.Res. 400, 94th Congress: to oversee and make continuing studies of the intelligence activities and programs of the United States Government, and to submit to the Senate appropriate proposals for legislation and report to the Senate concerning such intelligence activities and programs. In carrying out this purpose, the Select Committee on Intelligence shall make every effort to assure that the appropriate departments and agencies of the United States provide informed and timely intelligence necessary for the executive and legislative branches to make sound decisions affecting the security and vital interests of the Nation. It is further the purpose of this resolution to provide vigilant legislative oversight over the intelligence activities of the United States to assure that such activities are in conformity with the Constitution and laws of the United States."(http://intelligence.senate.gov/)
In other words... It was Kerry's job to ensure that George Bush was receiving good intelligence, a job that he did not take seriously as his attendance on the committee was haphazard at best!
Iraq & Al-Qaeda
If they're whining about there being no connection between Iraq and Al Qaeda... Here ya go! http://www.factcheck.org/article.aspx?docID=203 Be especially mindfull to point out the fact that out reason for being in Iraq is:"If we�re successful in Iraq, if we can stand up a good representative government in Iraq, that secures the region so that it never again becomes a threat to its neighbors or to the United States, so it�s not pursuing weapons of mass destruction, so that it�s not a safe haven for terrorists, now we will have struck a major blow right at the heart of the base, if you will, the geographic base of the terrorists who have had us under assault now for many years, but most especially on 9/11 . . .
So what we do on the ground in Iraq, our capabilities here are being tested in no small measure, but this is the place where we want to take on the terrorists. This is the place where we want to take on those elements that have come against the United States, and it�s far more appropriate for us to do it there and far better for us to do it there than it is here at home." - Cheney (Sept. 14, 2003)
Translation: To provide a place in the middle east that would draw terrorists like moths to a flame, bringing them out in the open to be combated - also to create a democracy in the middle east that would be its very existence force other nations in the area to inspect their totalitarian forms of government that creates the environment that breeds extremism.
If they claim that George Bush was AWOL, here's a page to feed them: http://www.factcheck.org/article.aspx?docID=140
If they claim that Bush cut off funding for veterans, here's a good one: http://www.factcheck.org/article.aspx?docID=144
If they're saying "Republicans are pushing for a draft" - http://www.factcheck.org/article.aspx?docID=200
It's probably not a good idea to call Kerry's quality of service into question, unless you yourself are a veteran, then you can question all you want! We are talking about liberals here and very few of them have ever served in the military. I've personally never run into one on chat boards... If you do run into one, no big deal! It comes down to a matter of opinion then doesn't it?
Another liberal gold standard is the old Halliburton got handed the Iraq contracts without a bidding process... Just let them chew on this one: http://www.factcheck.org/article.aspx?docID=201
Even if George Bush was friends with Kenneth Lay, saying that he is in some way implicated in Lay's wrongdoing is like saying that you should be prosecuted for a friend's illicit drug use...
George Bush signed strict new laws that have been used to prosecute a lot of corporate corruption figures from Ken Lay right down to Martha Stewart.
If they're whining the Bush has created the "largest deficit in history" here's a nice right-hook for them: http://www.factcheck.org/article.aspx?docID=148
If they point out that Kerry wants to give everyone medical coverage, point out that that is a standard liberal thing to claim, but that if one investigates a little closer the democrats feel no compunction to provide universal medical coverage. In fact, there was a window there where the democrats held a monopoly on Washington under Clinton... What kind of medical coverage got signed into law? Nothing! Point out that the only meaningful legislation to be signed into law in regards to health coverage was signed by George Bush. They of course will attempt to point out that the legislation in question only benefits drug companies (good they've taken the bait) Slap them silly with this: http://www.factcheck.org/article.aspx?docID=182 (also contains gems regarding Halliburton and Enron)
The liberals will whine that he has cut education spending... Here's the answer that you need to feed them: http://www.factcheck.org/article.aspx?docID=162
They will complain about the "no child left behind" bill... Ask them, "what's wrong with making sure that teachers are doing their job?" and "How many kids get pushed from one grade to the next without learning the skills they're going to need for life."
Offended? Intrigued? Contact my manager.
Here begins your journey into the mind of everybody's favorite asian, and I don't mean Jet Li.
What follows is the somewhat inane, mostly irrelevant, and self-important ramblings of a man on the brink of madness.
Welcome... to the Chu.
