Cheney & the Fanatics
« on: May 04, 2005, 05:00:59 PM »
From a recent town-hall meeting on Social Security Reform:

Cheney claims people from "the other faith oppose SS Reform:"


"If we don't do anything at all, if we just stay where a lot of people have said we ought to stay -- there are a number of members of Congress of the other faith who have said that we don't need to do anything -- well, if you don't do anything, the net result will be, for somebody today, say, in their 30s, by the time they get to retirement age, their benefit levels are going to be cut some 26 percent or 27 percent. Automatic, that's what will happen with today's existing law."

I didn't know that congree was divided on religious lines and all democrats were of another faith?  I also didn't know SS reform was a religious issue.  But apparently

After his speech Cheney took questions from the crowd.. oddly enough a pattern began to emerge:

Q Mr. Vice President, thank you for coming to Georgia, and thank you and the President for your leadership in the war on terror. Millions of Americans appreciate that.

My question is, I watched the press conference the other night with the President, and it seems like when the two of you come up with serious ideas that those from the other faith, in the other party, all they do is demonize and, in many cases, just lie and try to divide the older generation, our grandparents from us, those in our 30s.

                     and later on


Q Good morning, Vice President Cheney. I'd like to ask a question. This morning you've really delineated very well a lot of points in the program and what you and the President want to do. Could you delineate for us, because I think we have a little bit of an easy audience this morning on convincing us of this program -- could you delineate out a few other points from the other side, or the other faith, differences maybe in what you're saying this morning, and maybe what they're saying or not saying?

Apparently I am mistake.  The democrats are of another faith, what exactly that faith is I'm unsure.  Or maybe I should be more confused as to what exactly the republican faith is.  Either way these guys are fucking weirding me out more each week.

wow u r an idiot. faith is confident belief in the truth, value, or trustworthiness of a person, idea, or thing. it can also mean loyalty to a person or thing; allegiance: keeping faith with one's supporters.

so they weren't referring to people of a religious faith?

Odd because that is what is seemed like to me, and just last week the right was claiming the democractic use of the filibuster is an attack on people of faith:
