    Obamacare resembles the GOP counter to the Clintons back in '93 almost as much as Romneycare (which was modeled after it) does.

    I'll cut and paste my own quote now:

    the point, which you're avoiding, is that the current GOP is an animal made possible by the drastic shift to the right that the DLC/Turd Way movement (hey, that has a little cache', no?) has enabled.  It's not like (I) wasn't explicit aready on this point.
    I'll continue the discussion further if you address that, my main point.

      current GOP drastically shifted to the Right just when President Obama took office. The amount of fillibusters we have seen under this President has never been seen to such a degree during any other Democratic administration.

      We have to remember that this is a Party that had its members meet on the day the President was being sworn in to plot to do anything to obstruct him, before the President passed one single bill. So I would say your point here:

      the current GOP is an animal made possible by the drastic shift to the right that the DLC/Turd Way movement (hey, that has a little cache', no?) has enabled.
      Is not exactly born out by the fact, in that, they were blocking the guy even before he made any type of shift whatsoever.

      I have a strong belief that when Barack Obama leaves office the GOP will cease being as obstructionist as they currently are.
