    Now that the GOP has been deposed, it might be a good time to remember statements and positions they made/took while they controlled all three branches of the government.

    Remember how the Repubs always reminded the country that Dems were "out of the mainstream"? Well the shoe is on the other foot now, the Repubs are the ones who are out of step with the American people, they are the ones who are "out of the mainstream".

    Remember when the Repubs in the Senate were talking about doing away with the right of the minority party to fillibuster? This became known as the "Nuclear Option" and all the usual suspects were in favor of it. All we heard from the Limbaughs and the Hannitys of the world was "up or down vote". Well I wonder if they still think that the minority should have their right to dissent stripped away by the majority?

    There were a number of arrogant statements coming from the radical right but this one from Limbaugh pretty much sums it up, "Just shut up and go away until you win an election". Do you suppose we will not be hearing from Rush before the 2010 mid-terms?

    Wow. How more obvious an attempt at deflection can there be? Guess you've set the MO for YOUR agenda for the next 4 years, huh?

    Talk about obfuscation! How about an answer on point? Should we do away with the right of fillibuster in the Senate? Should Repubs "shut up and go away until they win an election"? Do you really believe that the Repubs are in the mainstream?

    I guess thats a matter of opinion...but I do remember them R's saying the Dims were not in the mainstream....and thats two completely different ideas isn't it?

    I sure remember Dem statements of the past, don't you?

    Like...."There isno doubt that Saddam Hussein has invigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies." Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others, December 5, 2001

    Remember that one....2001.....?

    How about...."We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country." Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

    That one is pretty memorable.....VP Al Gore...

    I could go on but you probably don't get the point anyway...hopefully some others might.....

    Uh - no. The country is still overwhelmingly center-right. They just got bamboozled by a smooth talker at a time of economic stress when the incumbant presidential party got blamed for something perpetrated by the Democrats.

    I also remember them saying that what goes around comes around.

    When a liberal quotes Rush Limbaugh you can always be sure it is out of context. He was telling them to shut up about setting liberal standards for Supreme Court nominees.

    Well you have had the house and senate for two years and now you have it all. We are all waiting to be saved and inducted into the mainstream.
