This is exactly what the Tea Party is doing.
There is a fundamental difference though, the ideas for change the Republicans are spouting is very new and different (with some of the same ol') from their past rhetoric.
The stuff Obama is spouting, every Democratic president since Roosevelt has proposed.
I still contend, that while the Democrats have moved slightly further left (Obama is closer to Truman politically then anyone) the Republican base is much much much further right then any other Republican President in history, and when the base moves, so does the party.
I guess what I'm trying to grok is why the base has moved so much on the Republican side. Its really unclear to me.
