This is a metaphor contest.
Since the Republicans have created $9.1 Trillion in U.S. Debt in twenty years of rule since 1980, what is the best metaphor to describe their egregious conceit that somehow, now, they are going to worry about the U.S. Debt? (See A Debt Is A Tax.com )
"It's like Mao Tse Tung wanting to protect intellectuals...?"
For twenty straight years of Republican Presidential rule, between Fiscal Years 1982 and 2009, Republican Presidents have increased the U.S. debt every single year. So them proclaiming they're worried about the debt is like...?
"PETA worrying about reduced beef consumption...?"
More after the fold...
Since Republican Presidents since FY 1978 have created over 80% of total U.S. Debt, the GOP worrying about debt is like...? (See Z Facts Chart: U.S. Debt Compared to National Income
"Dolly Parton lecturing on the evils of plastic surgery...?"
Since the Democrats have reduced the U.S. Debt in five out of thirteen years their Presidents have held office since 1978, while the GOP is zero for twenty, having the Republicans lecturing them on debt reduction is like...?
"Jack Kevorkian on extraordinary measures to preserve life...?"
Republicans don't fund their tax cuts. Instead they fund their "tax cuts" using government loans that U.S. Taxpayers have to pay off. So calling what the GOP does a tax cut is like..."
"Bernie Madoff selling you his 'complex financial instrument' that will protect your retirement.... ?"
So, since I never met a phor I didn't like, the floor is open, gentlemen and gentlewomen, start your metaphors!!
