  •  What united front? They didn't fight it at all. (2+ / 0-)

    The GOP's sword arm finally got tired out from hacking away at the New Deal. That was the high-water mark of Republican power in the Bush era, but don't think the waters ebbed because of Democratic Realpolitik.

    Nobody ever challenged Bush. Nobody ever challenged the idea that Social Security was "going bankrupt." Nobody proposed a better solution, like preventing the government from tapping SS surpluses to cover up deficit spending. Nobody did anything to stop it- the Republicans just got tired.

    I'm writing in Lizard People on my next ballot.
