So, has everyone here been doing this too.

I've noticed that all the liberals I know, before the election, all you heard was naysaying about the GOP "obstructionists", not giving Merrick Garland a vote, holding up new legislation, etc...

Now that the GOP is in control of congress and the white house, suddenly obstruction is "in vogue" again.

what gives?

Still towing the party line are we J-wonage?

How's that working out for you this circuit?

I know if your a Trump supporter this would sound terribly hypocritical, but it seems to me that there is a clear difference between obstructing a regular president from the other party (not cool when you do it for everything for eight years) and obstructing a president who is vastly incompetent and mentally ill (absolutely vital).

Plus, if the republicans want to play hardball 24/7 then (as uncouth as it might be) democrats will have to as well, or just loose at everything constantly.

And isn't it obvious by the cabinet picks that they intend to blatantly plunder the nation???

There are no liberals in Washington.

You answered your own question about being "in vogue". Partisanship.
