Midterms

Well, it’s getting close to election time.

Time for the bet.

Time to stop running mouths and put your money on the table.

I’ll bet the Republicans retain control of both Houses.

If the democrats win one or (gasp) more: I’ll become

GeorgeBushlied1

If the Republicans win the dems who accept the challenge become:

ILoveGeorgeWBush.

The Anti-Americans like reckless, pookie, juniho, ephrem and orion are welcome to join in!!!

Good luck.

JeffR

Great post!!

This is good. Somebody please accept.

In lieu of semper_fi’s post right below mine, I’d like to make it clear that my post was sarcastic.

Jeffy did this back in 2004. We had a couple of lefties take him up on the bet.

I doubt there will be anyone this time around take him up. We have lost a lot of quality from the left side of the fence in the last couple of years.

But I’ll throw in - and become BushLied2 if the dems can take one chamber of congress.

C’mon you yellow-bellied lefties - put up or shut up.

Ok, dan on the board as a yellow-belly.

All, show and no go, hey danny.

RJ, good to see you have the stones.

Next.

JeffR

All show and no go? Please elaborate why me not partaking in this dumb-ass idea makes me “all show and no go?”

Why do you hate freedom?

It’s kinda like sitting at a bar - and listening to a blow-hard loud mouth yammer all night. Then you challenge him to put his money where his mouth is - in a friendly wager - and he tries to worm his way out.

Irish - lighten up. You seem to be taking this far too serious.

Exactly.

Why not have some fun?

You guys (lefties) are running your mouth about how the House is the dems for the taking.

I disagree.

Let’s have a friendly bet?

The nice things about bets, is you have to put your cards on the table.

Doesn’t it delight you to think the Good Guys would have to type GeorgeBushLied to sign in?

Anyway, dan, you are yellow.

I hate freedom? Where do I say that?

Jeff, and RJ, let me make this clear. I don’t think the democrats will win. I never said they would win. I don’t want to take this bet because more likely than not, a conservative will take office again. I never “ran my mouth” saying that democrats will take 2008. I WANT them to take 2008, but I don’t think they will.

I welcome anyone who thinks that the dems will win to take this bet. There probably won’t be many, but that doesn’t make them “yellow-bellies,” unless they specifically say elsewhere that the dems will win, yet would not take this bet.

Is that better?

Better.

However, stand with the Good Guys.

That’s best.

JeffR

I don’t understand, are the good guys the democrats or republicans? Where does that leave the green party and the libertarians?

green/libertarians=nowhere.

Whenever I see JeffR’s name on here I get irritable. I can’t help it.

And Dan, my post was sarcastic.

Haha.

Man, if politics was “fun”, we wouldn’t spend so much time trying to drive each other off of an internet site.

That being said, I guess I’ll let this one go.

little irish,

You were one of those who has made reference to November. You’ve expressed your conviction that the dems will do well.

Too bad you don’t have the stones to accept THE CHALLENGE II.

I’m not surprised.

JeffR

You’re an idiot.

I don’t give a crap if your name is “#1Democrat”.

If I’m going to bet, it’s gonna be worth it.

How bout this- if I win, you’ve got to actually go to a gym.

Does this mean you accept THE CHALLENGE II?

I can’t lose with that bet!!!
