I've been trying to understand this conflict of mentality vs reality, for some time now. And this Comic really presents the issue clearly.

Not only that, but in a twist of irony, Democrats/liberals have now been backed into the position of having to speak out against the government shredding the Constitution and the executive branch's powergrabbing moves when it is, traditionally, Republicans/conservatives that tend to distrust big government and want to keep its power in check.

Bullshit? Have you not been paying attention to what's been happening? The Democrats are, in fact, accusing the executive branch of overextending its reach when it comes to political power... You respond with 'bullshit' then follow it up by exactly repeating what I described; the opposite party accusing the other of reckless power grabbing. How do you even reconcile those statements? What you say doesn't contradict anything I described. How, then, is that bullshit?

Sounds like you took offense to the description about 'being backed into a corner', but you didn't bother to examine what was actually being said.

Whatever party is not in power will accuse the other of reckless power grabibng and expensive government.

And 90% of the time, they'll be right.

Yeah, let's not talk about a $200 trillion war debt that falls squarely on the shoulders of Bush, Cheney, et al.

Nah, it must be Congress that caused all that debt.

Trying to blame Clinton for the budget being a mess is utterly futile. As the image in this post shows, he was far more fiscally responsible than any of the Republicans that preceeded or succeeded him. Anyone who believes that Clinton's actions somehow "caused" Dubya to sink us into the largest debt in American history is not just wrong, they're downright stupid.
