You are correct. I thought at the time that the Republicans could have owned the government for the next 30 years if they had pursued WACO diligently. But they didn't. They were completely cowed by the MSM and the Progressives by both parties.
Now we will see how much power the MSM has lost and the new media has gained. That is the big difference.
As I pointed out most in DC are OK w/ the ATF and its corruption. This is why no republicans made even a whimper and allowed the tards to grandstand during the ‘hearings’. DC is a swamp and it needs badly to be drained. If the tea party can go the route I think theres cause for hope. If not I think the situation will rapidly become intolerable.
