There's no doubt that profligate spending hurt the GOP in 2006, but it's also beginning to look like fighting more profligate spending (unemployment benefits forever, a 2nd stimulus) might damage the GOP this November.
So it's not so much the spending but rather the perception of the spending. Manipulated, as always, by our buddies in the mainstream media.
Had the "majority" on the SCOTUS? That's an odd concept. Who now has the "majority"?
They not only left us worse off, but acted so irresponsibly that they were thrown out of office and made it more difficult to regain power.
Made it more difficult to regain power? Have you looked at the polls lately?
But you go right on supporting anyone who puts an R after their name.
Damned straight I will. I don't always like it. Sometimes I choke on it. But I'll do it to save my country from a clear and present danger.
You're either intentionally conflating matters or totally delusional.
Graham, McCain, Collins and Snowe all voted against the Disclose Act. I don't like any of them. But in your perfect world of tilting against windmills the Democrats would've denied us that 1st Amendment right of freedom of speech.
I'm too old to let that kind of crap work its way through the courts.
I want my country back NOW!
It's all fueled by Santorum hate.
I'm disappointed in Toomey because he said he would have voted to confirm Sotomayor.
Being the minority party, however, is far worse than having a Santorum or a Toomey. The purists here whine that a Santorum or a Toomey is as as bad as having a Democrat because their votes aren't reliable.
Who determines whether legislation is introduced or bottled up? The majority party. Who determines what the oversight committees are going to oversee? The majority party. It's like the purists here know absolutely nothing about government. Or they just don't give a damn because they they're blinded by heir ideological rage.
Don't get me wrong -- I'd prefer Hayworth over McCain because Hayworth calls for repealing Obamacare while RINO McCain wants to "re-write" it. But if McCain does win the primary I'd support him over his Democrat opponent.
Look what one single Republican vote can do:
On a Senate vote of 57-41, Democrats fell short of the needed 60 to clear a procedural hurdle Republicans set up against The Disclose Act, likely killing the measure for the year.
That rotten RINO squish Scott Brown ensured that the bill would fail. With a GOP Senate majority that bill never would've been introduced let alone gone to cloture.
Look at what has happened to America since Democrats took control of both houses in 2006. Look at what has happened to America since Obama was inaugurated 18 months ago.
I want my country back! And I'm not gonna piss and moan over why Toomey said he would have voted for Sotomayor but not Kagan. We no longer have the luxury to reject Republican candidates over esoteric woulda/shoulda arguments.
Six more years of an Obama presidency and Democrat majorities in Congress must be avoided.
That's far more important than the petty grievances of the purists here.
Now they hate Toomey.
