8 years of republican rule... not one republican sponsored investigation into Republican corruption. In fact, the justice department was partisanized and anyone, republican or Democrat who was investigating republican corruption was fired. compare that reality to today's... still a month and a half BEFORE Democrats come to power... And the Democratic chief of staff NOMINEE drops a dime on the Democratic Governor of his home state, the minute he becomes aware that the Governor is acting unethically. No "partisan investigation".... He CALLED the COPS on the guy. Wow... The return of civic virtue to national politics... I can hardly wait... PS- Also note the cynical ideological agenda of the Republicans in the senate in trying to OVERTLY destroy the UAW, even if it means plunging the entire nation into a HOOVERESQUE depression... ( Dick CHENEY said killing it meant Hoover-times) That is how much republicans hate the working class. They would throw the whole nation under the bus to end organized labor. The only loyalty republicans have is to business ownership... and they don't care how the pursuit of profit impacts the American people. As a party, as a perspective, the republican party has abdicated any claim to patriotism, abdicated any claim to moral virtue. People who hate government CAN NOT GOVERN.
