    ever again so Dems can't rely on his coat tails. The only deficit Dems should be trying to reverse right is the trade deficit (more American jobs, in other words), then the budget deficit will shrink.

    •  Yep. Impossible to exaggerate how stupid and.. (3+ / 0-)

      self-defeating it is for Democrats to sign on to the deficit snark hunt. Every dollar cut from Federal spending and handed to billionaires as another tax break merely accelerates the economic decline of the middle class.
