Were We Watching The Same Speech?

Isn't it jarring when you talk to someone of a different ideological bent than yours about an event and find that you share the same opinion, but

Isn't it jarring when you talk to someone of a different ideological bent than yours about an event and find that you share the same opinion, but for very different reasons?

PFAW:

The Family Research Council was not overly-impressed with the President's latest State of the Union address, complaining that President Bush "failed to challenge the new majority to advance core family and cultural issues":

[..]Tony Perkins released his own video response in which he warned that "today we have the most anti-family leadership in Congress that Washington has seen in over a decade," saying the "stakes for the American family could not be higher"

It appears that Tony, like Hugh, wants the Republican minority to adhere more closely to the extreme right. Don't know how to break this to you, Tony, but that's what got you in the minority in the first place. Don't miss PFAW's rundown of FRC's favorite candidates and how the elections turned out for them:

Fully half of the twenty GOP incumbents who lost their seats in the House on Tuesday received either a 100% ranking from the joint Family Research Council Action/Focus on the Family Action voter guide or the endorsement of Gary Bauer's Campaign for Working Families - and five of the losers received both.

At the same time, five of the six GOP senators who lost their re-election bids received both a 100% ranking form FRC/FOF and a CWF endorsement (the exception being Rhode Island Senator Lincoln Chafee.)
