This joke isn't funny anymore!

When the President/Democrats say, "These were good ideas when they were your ideas, but suddenly they're not any longer (big smile), ha ha ha..."

Not funny.

This is how the country continues to get pulled further and further to the right. We wind up espousing their ideas. They then have to come up with more ludicrous (hyperbole) ideas, e.g., their war on women, to make their bad ideas of years past look reasonable when Dems sign off on them.

It's their game. They are winning because Dems are afraid to look center left, whatever that means today, because as far as I can tell, Republican ideas are erroneously being termed "the center" rather than "right of center." The right is mere hyperbole, there to pull the country further to the right. And it works!
