Quick Link: Remember When...

Does anybody else remember the days shortly after the election (2012) during which the heavy criticism against the Republican party was that too many of their candidates (mostly, Tea-Partiers) were too concerned about social issues? The argument ran that if we could just focus on economics issues, and perhaps on fighting against big government, the party would be popular and in power. That criticism was mostly from people billing themselves as friends of the party (nobody should care about the criticisms of the Democratic party operatives, since they aren't interested in helping the Republicans to win nor in solving any of the country's problems so long as the Democrats stay in power and the country moves ever leftward over the cliff).

During the government shutdown, the criticism is suddenly that the Republicans are too interested in financial issues, and too interested in fighting against the growth of the government. You just can't please some people.
