You cried long and hard about the Democrats while I laughed at your naive ideas of politics and now it's all "La de dah, this is just how it's done!"
Huh? My criticism of the Democrats was almost entirely about their devout willingness to simply vote in lockstep with whatever their leadership proposed. I argued that this kind of "one size fits all" central government model would drive people away from the Democratic party (which it did). I argued that absence of debate within a party is frankly kinda scary (which it is).
And now, despite you predicting that the GOP would engage in exactly the kind of lockstep behavior that the Democrats did, when they *didn't* do so, you're still trying to spin the issue somehow? That makes zero sense.
Look, it's fine. Absolutely no one expected different from you. Just funny to see it so clearly illustrated.
To be consistent in my position? I've literally argued for years that debate within a party is not a sign of collapse or disarray, but rather a sign of a party that is actually trying to represent the people and not just the powerful in the party itself. I've argued for years that this is a good thing. So yeah, when the GOP members reject a plan that their own leadership proposed, that's not in any way a problem for me.
Why would it be? The only person who was wrong here was you. So I'm not sure what you're laughing about.
