Republicans divorced from reality

Listening to the speeches last night, you would think Democrats and Republicans inhabited different planets.

First, for Fred Thompson to call out Barak Obama for being inexperienced is a touch ironic.

But more importantly, for him to talk about deficits, about America's standing in the world is nonsense. Who was President when there was a surplus?

And to call out the Congress for being dysfunctional was funny too, since Republicans have basically made it clear that they'll filibuster anything they don't like. It's like Tories in Canada complaining that Parliament doesn't work when they are the ones with a 200 page book on how to disrupt committees.

The problem is Americans and Republicans believe this nonsense.
