To be completely honest, I am a republican. I voted for Mike Huckabee in the 2008 primary in support for family values and the fair tax. I voted for McCain in the general election in support for social issues, in particular the life issue.
What I do not do is vote for republicans, support republicans and oppose democrats just because I'm a republican, that's my party and my supposed job is to support the team and oppose the opposition.
I noticed since 2008 many republicans cane unhinged and seem to do exactly what I do not do and in fact object to; oppose the president because he's leads the opposition. This seems apparent based on him being held to a double standard. I find little to no credibility with arguments that claim the current president is gosh-darn awful because he did "X" but saud absolutely nothing then nor now when one of their own did "X" first and/or to a greater extent. In fact, since I'm being comeplely honest, due to the high level of osupposed outrage over the persistent doing various "X" that they had no problem then nor now when our side did the same things sometimes including dishonesty, I highly suspect these are only masks and their real problem is something else the rules do political correctness prevent them from openly acknowledging.
Do I disapprove of presudential executive orders? I'd never considered the question until Obama opponents brought it up. I don't think they're the best way to get laws enacted in a perfect world. As long as there's judicial review and the ability for congress to repeal them, I don't think its the end of the world. My favorite executive order is the emancipation proclamation. Not perfect but a step in the right direction.
