Congressional Republicans are Completely Full of It

For the immediate six years following the party-line enactment of the Affordable Care Act, when Republicans initially took control of the House of Representatives and eventually the Senate as well, the GOP v0ted on no less than 52 (!) separate measures aiming to repeal the terrible legislation. At a time when Republicans did not fully […]

Barack Obama Truly was a “Change” President

Famously and amorphously promising “hope and change” in 2008, Barack Obama swept into the Oval Office on a wave of identity politics and apparent electoral lust for political change. But now that the dust has settled following his eight year run and the substance of his policies, decisions, and actions as president have become real, […]

Hey Democrats! We Need You to Get Your Act Together! (Repost)

Stumbled across this today and it is an interesting take on this most recent electoral cycle from a presumably left-libertarian.  As posted by Eric Raymond on Armed and Dangerous (all emphases and links in original): It’s now just a bit over a month since Election Day, and I’m starting to be seriously concerned about the […]

Democrats are Slow Learners, I Guess

To be fair, the sting is real and still very raw.  But, it certainly appears that Democrats are failing to recognize (or acknowledge) some key lessons from this election. As one Twitter user put it: This appears to be a teachable lesson that, at least for the moment, is lost on many liberals. As I […]

Same Tactics, Different Party?

Some Republicans in the so-called “lame duck” Congress are voicing complaints that present party leadership is attempting to “squeeze” through an omnibus spending bill, to the inexcusably ridiculous tune of $1+ trillion (!), by revealing it mere days before current funding resolutions expire. The reported intent is to limit reading (and criticism/amending) of the bill […]
