Wow. I think WingNutDaily’s Joseph Farah may have stroke; he’s practically foaming at the mouth at the Republicans who have come on board to join Team Obama.

They are being seduced – one by one – by President Obama and the Democratic leadership. They are being co-opted – not all of them, of course, but just enough to spread the blame for what is the inevitable failure of Democratic policies, particularly on the economy.

The latest is Judd Gregg, Republican senator from New Hampshire, who has agreed to be Obama’s commerce secretary.

…What’s wrong with Republicans cooperating with the Obama administration?

For starters, there’s a reason for having more than one party in America. Bipartisanship sounds nice. But, especially in times like these, when one party dominates the executive and legislative branches of government, and when that one party is all but suspending the Constitution and exceeding the authority given to the federal government, the minority party needs to stand up for principle and for the rule of law.

Secondly, when those conditions exist, the minority party has, as I have explained, a great opportunity to get back into power by allowing – shall we say – nature to take its course.

Let me go over that one, again.

The policies of Obama and the Democrat-dominated Congress are going to fail. They are going to fail because they have been tried many times in the past and always fail. Those policies – whether you call them “bailouts” or “redistribution of wealth” or “debt spending” – all amount to one ridiculous experiment that has been conducted many times in human history and failed each and every time.

You can accurately characterize all of them as “socialism.”  

Oh my, you mean like the socialism doled out by George W. Bush when made Uncle Sam an owner of all those failing banks with TARP?
