A party man. His argument? The only one he now has: the Democrats would be worse. How worse? Has any Democratic Congress spent as much and as indiscriminately as this crew? Has any Democratic Congress shoveled out the pork the way these people have? Not since LBJ has a president waged such an incompetent, poorly planned and failing war. The tired, lame excuse that the Democrats would be worse has been used now election after election. It's time to call these people's bluff. If the Republicans do not get punished in this climate, they will absorb one lesson alone: keep doing what you're doing. You can get away with anything. It's not healthy for the country and it's not healthy for the Republicans. Throw them out.
