Republicans Defeated in France and Greece

To paraphrase one of the Right’s favorite soundbites:   Austerity has never worked.

Voters in France and Greece have spoken.  They said No.  Austerity for 99% of the population + unimaginable wealth and splendor for one percent = electoral defeat.  Hopefully the same thing will happen to GOP politicians who keep trying to increase “defense” spending, reduce taxes for millionaires and cut infrastructure spending to the marrow.

Sarkozy, like his conservative counterparts in the U.S.,  tried to win votes by pushing the Bigotry and “Christian Values” buttons.  How’d that work out for him?

The European election results are a positive sign for 99-percenters everywhere.

We've all had it with wingers. At least the ones among us who are allowed out of the kitchen have had it.

well I hope they don't come crying to us when they wind up back at the same place but only worse.
Not that we will be in a better position. Maybe they can ask Argentina or Zimbabwe for help.
Oh and for the record it wasn't a landslide win. Some cool heads still prevail.

Speaking of cooler heads prevailing

LIS: I think you need to go back to your child-like Obama bashing blog. Only intelligent conversation is appreciated here.

'Europeans are smarter than we are'

As long as they go along with a liberal agenda because you know liberals own morality and tolerance that is of course until someone has an opinion other than theirs.

OK, Lisa, you've done your homework well yet again! You even managed to add Argentina to your list, and in so doing completely blow your argument out of the water. Seriously..... before you just re-fart whatever your man-hunk Rush says, you need to do a little historical reading. I'm sorry your man doesn't think you need to be educated beyond cooking, cleaning, and having babies-but if you are going to post comments like these, it is a must.

Nah. Forget about all that "education" stuff I said, and get us all a fine chicken dinner. Run along now.

JR: I hope the people who actually vote will be the ones who have had it with the Far Right.

JUDI: LOL. Thanks for stopping by.

Mr. C: It sure does seem that way sometimes.

Damn Lisa, the ignorance you have is totally astounding. You do know that Argentina has one of the better economies in the Americas right now don't you? It was long ago and far, far away they had the sucky one. Things have changed in the world since then. If you got yer head out of yer ass long enough to smell other than your excrement(look it up if it's a big word for you)you too would know these things.

I saw as far as the Greek elections they even managed to get themselves around 6%, I think it was, of honest to Keeryst Nazis elected. austerity cannot work, never has, never will. There has to be revenue and cutting, preferably of defense spending in our case, and we would still have the highest expenditure in the world bar none.

Oh and Lisa you might want to look at this video closely, very closely and realize most of us wimminz can think for ourselves, we don't need to be told what to do. The rest of you can too but this is for those women that don't have clue one, we don't have brains that belong to men, we are their equals in every way.

You must remember one thing. Americans are not as smart as Europeans. This country is dead in the water!
