  •  Oh, and Reagan was a Keynesian (3+ / 0-)

    I'm firmly of the belief that it was Reagan's massive, unprecidented deficit spending on bloated military budgets that stimulated the economy out of his 1st term recession and the marginal tax cuts he gave principally to the wealthy had very little to do with it.  The rhetoric was the right wing cant of "supply side stimulation" but the economics were pure Keynes.

    Problem is, since about 2006 the Republicans have started taking their bullshit seriously.  I suppose because their dimwit Teabagging base thought they were telling the truth about the Laffer Curve and the rest of that crappola.
