Over at Contrary Brin, David Brin looks at the election and asks:
Recall that the GOP controlled Congress for TWELVE years, from 1995 to 2007 and for the last six of those, they controlled every branch and lever of the US government, from presidency to courts to Congress and so on. What did they do with that perfect and complete lock on power? Did they take control of our borders? Solve the “entitlements crisis?” Balance budgets? Deregulate reviled agencies? Offer a plan for health care reform? Can you recall anything they actually did, during those years? Other than deregulate banks and Wall Street?It's an interesting read, particularly when he starts trying to look for hope.
