    concerinng GOP hypocrisy, politics by distraction,  and "not giving a damn..."   Kevin Drum has a great post up about the battle for the fiscal soul of the GOP - tax cuts vs. spending cuts.

    I was going to make a diary out of it - but I think it fits into this thread pretty well instead.

    This has been one of my main points with GOP types I talk with - this administration is not conservative and is utterly betraying the values fiscal conservatives hold dear.  It's all smoke and mirrors - time to put an end to their bait and switch...

    Conservatives think America is a Christian nation... Liberals think America ought to act like one.

    •  i do that too (none)
      Every time i find myself talking to a Republican, i point out that if i were a Republican, i'd be utterly appalled at Bush, then start riffing on his fiscal insanity.

      A lot of them agree with me.

    •  Yup (none)
      Republican moderates and paleocons are moving from slow burn to outright ire about the fiscal irresponsibility of the Bush admin.  Every supplemental spending bill presents a perfect chance to talk to them about interest rates and inflationary pressures.
