    No, it's not hypocritical at all.

    I feel the same way. I fondly remember the days when Republican politicians were merely worthless.

    Now, they've gone far, far, far beyond that. They have reached a sub-level of achievement that transcends mere worthlessness.

    In the good old days, GOP politicians were defined by their ridiculous ideologies. And yes, I thought they couldn't get any worse, but I was wrong.

    Now, treason and corruption DEFINE the GOP. The GOP has reached the lowest point of its existence.

    Republican politicians can't get any worse now for sure.

    . . . Right?

    Lets be honest here. It isn't the same. Ronald Reagan used to dine with Tip O'Niel once a week, so that they could keep communication lanes open, even when they disagreed. Contrast that with this headline -

    "John Boehner says fellow congressmen won't let him play golf with Obama"

    Beohner says "“If I go down to see President Obama, the right begins to wonder what i’m up to. The left begins to wonder what the President is up to. The President has suggested, ‘Hey, do you think it is too much trouble to play golf again?’ and I have to look at him and say, ‘Yes,’ because everybody gets bent out of shape worried about what we are up to, when all we are really want to do is just play golf.’”

    So please, spare me. There is a lot of room for nostalgia by us former Republicans. The parties are broken, and are more worried about optics than getting things done. A lot of us long for the old way we used to battle with "liberals" - which evidently I am one now - because I don't like how the current leadership behaves.

    Even Hatched was an unashamed friend of Kennedy. That amounts to treason today.

    I think it's more than a little disingenuous to keep trying to pass off our current situation by establishing some sort of equivalency to something else. We have not had a president this unqualified before. It is not possible to mock what comes out of the white house. Indeed, it mocks us.
    Now is not the time for good people to remain silent.
