Yes, there are a lot of excellent points in the discussion, but at the same time I'm rather bothered by it. Where were these guys two years ago? Where were they four years ago? Or six? Or eight? Were these points not equally valid then? It's perfectly understandable to call for smaller government, less military spending and more transparency. But any Republican who does so today needs to be about two years old to have any credibility. I wish that I could guarantee that when Republicans again control the government (in a manner in which they actually hold the reins, that is, not the way they currently control it) these sentiments will still be voiced by right-wingers, but I know that they will not. They will not even be held to account for their 180 degree reversal.

I agree with you, why do these voices appear only when a Democrat is in charge?
