Has there ever been a confederacy of dunces deeper into denial than the fiscal conservatives of the GOP? I mean, c'mon guys! You have to draw the line SOMEWHERE! We're gonna be forking over TWO HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR JUST TO PAY THE INTEREST ON DUBYA'S DEFICITS! If he were a Democrat, we'd be drafting the articles of impeachment by now.
I know I'm repeating myself, but as Friedman (no raving libber he) notes:
"The latest report from the Congressional Budget Office says the deficit is expected to total some $2.4 trillion over the next decade вЂ” almost $1 trillion more than the prediction of just five months ago. That is a failure of intelligence and common sense that threatens to make us all insecure вЂ” and people also feel that in their guts...
"Is your future better off now than it was four years ago вЂ” now that you are saddled with these large new liabilities and the higher taxes that must eventually accompany them?' "
...expose what the shameful coalition of Karl Rove-led cynics, who care only about winning the next election; voodoo economists preaching supply-side economics; and libertarian nuts who think that by cutting tax revenues you'll shrink the government вЂ” when all you do is balloon the deficit вЂ” is doing to our future."
