Makes one wonder at your lack of indignation...
when the same exact things are pointed out about Democrats and the Democratic party in general.
There's a big difference between making traffic flow
and lifetime appointments for judges with a history of trampling on personal freedoms, Ed! Sometimes philosophy is worth fighting for -- that's different than obstructing for the sake of obstruction, which is what this bozo wants.

Nope...Read again the article YOU linked...
and you will see that the party as a whole has " voted overwhelmingly to support Proposition 2 and to repeal Safe Clear. The local party's Web site has links to council voting records maintained by the city.".
In other words the PARTY feels that supporting what they don't support is not right nor proper and their reasons for non-support are clear also.
Proposition 2 is a MORE RESTRICTIVE CAP than Proposition 1 and "Gordon Quan and Ada Edwards, are Democrats. They opposed both revenue cap proposals, fearing the measures would cut city spending too much." They were willing to vote for an additional $100,000 to spend defending the less restrictive spending cap measure. That bodes ill for taxpayers.
The Towing Plan bothered BOTH SIDES and it bothered YOU ALSO when it was previously discussed here in this very forum.
Again I ask you WHERE is your righteous indignation when EXACTLY the same thing happens when Democrats vote against their party's position? In general YOU immediately begin castigating those persons and generally in terms of voting against the will of the people.
The descriptive word for that behavior Dave is hypocrite.
The 45 Senate Democrats of 2005 are as united
"The Democratic leader, Harry Reid of Nevada, has said that if the Republicans made good on their threat and ruled filibusters out of order, he would see to it that Senate business came to a halt."
The 45 Senate Democrats of 2005 are as united in opposition to conservative judges as Southern Senate Democrats of 1964 were united in opposition to civil rights.
Democrats do not believe that any nominee who can be suspected of believing in the personhood of the unborn or of other "deeply held beliefs," to quote Senator Schumer, is qualified to sit on the federal bench-- cannot be bridged, and given its importance, should not be avoided. Senators Leahy, Schumer, Kennedy, Boxer, Clinton and Reid have in essence imposed a prohibited "religious test" on nominees for office.
Section 1841. The remaining part of the clause declares, that "no religious test shall ever be required, as a" qualification to any office or public trust, under the "United States."
(this should go both ways on religion)
Mayor Bill White was the better of the 2 candidates that ran for mayor. But he is starting to make Lee Brown look good, safe clear was horrible, Prop ?1? 2 little 2 late, shut down bus routes to force light rail, now he wants to make I-10 a toll road?
(NT) Good ol' lockstepping democrats
Ahh, takes you back to the good ole days
when sweet Mrs. Clinton fired all the non-political government employees in the travel office and hired a truck load of jerks from Arkansas doesn't it?
My memory is still holding, how's yours?
I do think the Texas GOP is off base in some areas
For example, they want us to return to the gold standard, and they want "creation science" taught in schools.
