With the exception of drug laws and gay marriage I can't really think of any other issues that the Democrats are like "yay! State's Rights!"

And those only because they don't think they can win them nationwide.  I'll bet you once Gay Marriage becomes politically popular outside of Vermont, the democrats will make it a national plank issue.

We don't think it was good how Bush expanded government either but at the time he had a good argument. The left keeps using Bush as a reflection of everything the GOP has and ever will stand for and it's just not true. Nice try though.

Assuming we refers to the entire Republican Party, this is not convincing. Bush had blind party-liners' support for party's sake. What you write is as good as any out-of-office Republican endorsing, say, same-sex marriage. It doesn't do any good. Nor does it impress. Piss-poor try.

The democrats will do anything that benefits them at the time. They were against the Civil Rights bill in 1957 and for it in 1964 because they learned how to manipulate minorities into voting for them. Now all of a sudden they are for states' rights on gay marriage and drugs SO THEY DON'T HAVE TO TAKE A STAND THEMSELVES. It's called copping out and will be another reasons why democrats lose the House this fall.

Universal healthcare obliterated what small speck was left of the Democrats' tendancies towards states' rights.
