    its healthy for our long term future to see conservatives standing up and saying enough is enough... we'll see how well the porkbusters and "operation offset" efforts are, but for our sake and that of our country, let's hope they succeed.

    Just another sign that the R Party "leadership" has gone on past the point of no return. "Don't criticize spending or you are part of the problem?" Have they become Democrats?

    They look like Dems to me but I'm glad a few real conservatives are still the mix. Maybe they can distance themselves a bit and provide us with some real republican leadership to support in the future.
    ( make a compromise with some libertarians maybe or would that be just expecting WAY too much? )

    to try to influence voters to reelect you is the factor. The repubs seem to have turned their backs on the Contract with America and have coopted the dem approach to majority government; write big fat checks for big fat programs or expenditures in repub districts to spread the government largesse around and get that vote out for the incumbent. I fear the repub majority will be very short termed if they continue to act like dems. If you want a big government spending politician why not elect the real thing,a dem?

    The Republicans frequently resort to that line. Like when they said if you're not in favor of the war in Iraq, you're against America.

    It is possible to be against something just because it's stupid.
