I think it’s worth reposting this excerpt from my post on April 29, 2009, reacting the news that PA Senator Arlen Specter had left the Republican Party and become a Democrat, securing a filibuster proof Senate majority for Democrats, Relax, The Dems Will Screw Up:

It would be very easy to fall into a depression over Arlen Specter switching political parties, giving Democrats a likely filibuster-proof Senate majority. The result will be that Obama will be able to push through much of his agenda without meaningful debate….

What history shows us is that a liberal, blame-America-first Democratic President, urged on by a liberal, blame-America-first Democratic Congress, is a prescription for political self-destruction. Leave Democrats to their own devices, and they will screw themselves politically, just when they are at the height of power.

A year and a half later Democrats got blown out in the midterms because they went too far with Obamacare.

Now, Democrats are flush with victory, ready to purge their opponents, searching the landscape for survivors to finish off.

They will go too far. They already have.

The only question is how much damage they will do along the way, and how we can protect ourselves.
