Obama apologists who defend NSA spy program are suddenly pals with Dick Cheney, too

For Americans who still believe we have a legitimate two-party political system, and that each party has its own set of principles, values and beliefs that are diametrically different than those of the other party, should abandon that fallacy pronto, because frankly, it just ain't true.

While officially there may be two major parties in power - Democrats and Republicans - there is only one mindset among members of both parties, and it is an adherence to, and belief in, Big Government statism.

That is the only way to explain why House Republicans will only talk of repealing Obamacare (knowing they can't get a repeal through the Dem-controlled Senate or a Democrat president) instead of voting to defund its various provisions, which would effectively kill its implementation (without funding, agencies charged with implementing and managing it cannot do so). Because Republican leaders in the House (and Senate, for that matter) are Big Government advocates.

Think Bill Clinton and George H. W. Bush, whom Clinton defeated, when they "joined forces" to raise funds for yet another natural disaster in Haiti. Think New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie becoming President Obama's pal in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. Think of the so-called "Gang of 8," who have "come together" to pass "comprehensive immigration reform."
