Well, it's about time...

(PICTURED: The federal government attempting to fix the economy)

"WASHINGTON – Republicans lined up Sunday in opposition to a second economic stimulus package, a rare demonstration of unity from an out-of-power political party in search of a rallying cry against President Barack Obama." - AP via Yahoo!

On the one hand, I like to see this kind of response. On the other hand, they should have done the same thing when Bush, Bernake and Paulson shoved the TARP down America's throat a year ago. The fact that they didn't makes them look like they're opposing Obama's plans for partisan reasons rather than legitimate policy differences.

Which, of course, most of them are.

hey, Brad, great points, well done.

And Bush did a great job of laying the perfect foundation for Obama's plans, made 'em look like a continuation rather than a U-turn, didn't it?

Being 'Democrat Light' won't get votes. Nice to see them give some opposition, even if late.

We'll see how hard they fight.

Nice blog, Brad, keep up the great work!
