A while ago, then-GOP National Chair Michael Steele said - and this is an exact quote:  "You have absolutely no reason - none - to trust our words or our actions at this point."

In today's Star Tribune, noted GOPer apologist Jason Lewis demonstrates this continues to be true.  I'd fact-check Jason, but what's the point?  It's not like pointing out (once again) that Reagan said "facts are stupid things" and GOPers live it will really change their deceitful ways.  No, today Jason whipped out something that needs to simply be mocked, ridiculed and scorned:  Jason calling the pot black.  Here's what he wrote:

"The glorified mob, from Athens to New York, is threatening social instability if it doesn't get what it wants, but it will bring about only the economic chaos it pretends to oppose."

Earth to Jason; earth to Jason!  Republicans gave Wall Street Banksters everything - EVERYTHING - they wanted, and the results is not only the economic chaos we are still in, but driving the world's economic system to the brink of meltdown.

When reading Lewis, and Kersten too, it's pretty easy to tell who are the whiny 9 year olds demanding everything they want - it's the less-regulation/no regulation, "my way or the highway" GOP.

Gentle Readers may recall GOPers - like the whiny, (mentally) 9 year old Lewis - ranting about their belief in "free markets" and "competition" and what wonderful things that "competition" will do for the economy.  Well, remember those words while we take a look at the results of their deeds:

Only a fool would believe what GOPers say - and what their apologists, like Jason Lewis and Katherine Kersten, write.

Jason Lewis is simply today's example of:  "You Couldn't Trust The GOP Then, You Still Can't Now, And Tomorrow Won't Be Any Different."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
