    If Republicans tried to pull a blatant politically partisan act like this, I would be joining Democrats denouncing it.
    LOL, I'll believe that when, or if I ever, see that. So far, TD, you've been remarkably consistent in your exclusive denunciation of Dems and liberals. It's not like the GOPers have been behaving like church choirboys all this time.

    "The GOP does it too" is not a defense for Dem actions.

    I am unsure where anyone on any side of the aisle has made that claim about the GOP; the thread topic was the naked partisan hypocrisy of Democrats in Massachusetts who have now set a new low standard in partisan politics.

    So in all your efforts to make the topic something else, what say you on this issue? Are you okay with it?

    Why would ANYONE willingly want to engage into a circle of futility like that?

    Although I get your point; the FACT is, as far as I know, the GOP has not done anything like this to date.

    BUT, now that Democrats have set the bar to this new low despicable standard, the question becomes; can they now complain if Republicans engage in this type of obvious partisan hypocrisy?

    The same question occurs in close elections; would it be wrong for Republicans to attempt to disenfranchise voters by divining votes from hanging chads?

    You might as well just put this in your sig line, because it's going to come up in every thread.

    Your post was a victim of your reading skills.

    I said what issues "should" the left and right come together on.

    This implies and that I am speaking of the present, not the 1950's.

    But if you were making another point about the past..then fine I agree. That was great and I hope one day Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh are not the defacto leaders of your party and we can all sit down and reason with one another.

    Re: Massachusetts names Kirk to fill Kennedy Senate seat

    I think we should just repeal the 17th amendment that changed the way State Senate representation was determined. Prior to the 17th amendment, the state legislature appointed the state senators. This provided a form of checks and balances in the US Congress that guaranteed that the states were properly represented in the US Congress.

    As it is now, we get Senators that are more concerned with the direction of their parties than they are about representing their states in the states best interest. They know that the average Joe does not and cannot follow the everyday details of the legislative process. All they have to do is bring home some "bacon" every now and then and pass it off as a feather in their cap. Either that or pure name recognition is enough to maintain their seats. They know that if the state legislature was in charge of their seat, they would have to abandon party principles and vote in the best interest of their state.

    If we did this, things like this so-called healthcare bill (aka government takeover of your healthcare), cap and trade, the stimulus bill and a host of other liberal boondoggles would have never seen the light of day.

    What I provided was several examples of what it would look like.

    Your time travelling is bogus. You wanted to know what a true bi-partisan project looks like, and I showed you. It is something in our NATIONAL interest, and not a project that is in the interest of this section or that section. Hoover Dam was good for AMERICA, the Apollo program was good for AMERICA. the interstate system was good for AMERICA These kind of national endeavors benefit the nation, not play one sector off against another.

    Your party's penchant for wealth distribution ?
    No clearer case of trying to set one sector against another.
    Robin Hoods theft is a deal breaker, and as I already told you, you're never going to talk the robbed into agreeing with it, so stop proposing robbing.

    Speaking of playing one sector off against another . . .
