    fiscal conservatism. They say they don't want to borrow money to pay for things we can't afford and don't need, but when asked how this explains their intention to borrow money to pay for things we can't afford and don't need, like certain defense programs or subsidies to big oil, they say well that's different, we need these programs, even though experts say we don't need them.

    It's this whole "Well, that's different, it just is" excuse for their massive hypocrisy and inconsistency that Obama & Dems need to nail them on. Don't tell me that we can't and must not do something, and then tell me we can and must do it anyway where it suddenly suits you, especially if the exceptions you cite are absolutely unnecessary and fiscally irresponsible.

    Kill Bird Bird but built carriers and tankers we don't need and that military leaders don't want? Are you fucking kidding me? You think the public is still that stupid? Is that a bet Repubs still want to make? I sure hope so. It will destroy them.
